If I'm honest this place took us both completely by surprise. The location is excellent, with the main camps bay front a short walk. The rooms and house is great - it has a home from home feeling. Can't fault it if I'm honest. Owners are very welcoming but respect guests privacy and freedom . One of the nicest stays...

Excellent accommodation, location, service, food etc - again. We've been coming here since 2003 & get the same very high standards every time. We have stayed in dozens of guest houses around S.A over the years - this is the best.

This Guest House only rents out a few rooms, so if you are lucky enough to be one of the select few who get to stay there, you will never go anywhere else. Meryl and Steve are the perfect hosts. Always available to attend to your needs, but not overpowering, so you feel relaxed and comfortable in this beautiful property,...

My girlfriend and I stayed here in Nov-16. The owner/host, Meryl, was incredibly helpful with recommendations for Camps Bay, Cape Town and broader SA. Location was perfect and the accommodation was just what we needed. Would definitely go back!
