Normally not a b&b man but my wife prevailed upon me to stay at this little spot for its quaint vibe and socially conscious mission. Lesson learned: listen to wife. Very charming, arty feel (just as wife suggested). Low key surroundings of old, residential homes yet still within healthy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Kalk Bay. We...

Quite a nice little spot on the hillside slope with seaview vantage points from nearly every room. Spent most of the days exploring the nearby coastal villages and beaches, several of which have tidal pools that we quite enjoyed (shark-free!). Kalk Bay is particularly nice for its little shops and plenty of eating establishments. Each day at the b&b started...

We chose this as a place of escape during middle of a long trip, and spent lots of time looking out the window spotting whales in the harbor. There was a lot of fun and color in the space, from the sheets to the framed artwork to the rugs and curtains in the lounge. The hostess treated us well and...

I stayed in this place for my holiday treat... and I'll have to consider doing it again! Quaint, cute interior with character and charm.

Lovely little hideaway with great vistas of the wild waters of the cape. You get a perfect eyefull of mountains, whales in the bay, shifting clouds and an earful of breaking waves on the beach below.
