The location of the B&B is in a nice neighborhood, quiet and close to the beach. The rooms and facilities are very confortable! Ralf the owner shares breakfast on a daily basis with you, which creates a very nice atmosphere in the B&B. Also he is very helpful in providing good travel tips. The staff is also very attentive and...

The little Lemon Tree has everything that you are looking for. Great location, very nice, spacious and clean rooms. Huge breakfast attacking your waistline and great guests. Why is this B&B different than others ? I can only tell from my own experience that the difference is caused by the proprietor Ralf. The Little Lemon Tree has besides all the...

I spent only one night here, but it sure was a good choice. My room was neat and very clean. Ralf and team were great hosts, friendly, and always willing to accommodate the guests. Nice atmosphere around the guest house.

I highly recommend this wonderful place! We stayed for 6 nights and felt very much at home at this beautiful yellow house, so nicely decorated wherever you looked. The lush garden with its pool area and beautiful terrace where the fantastic breakfast was served every morning also created a very relaxed atmosphere. The rooms were also so nicely decorated and...

We have visited Cape Town many times, but on our most recent visit were lucky enough to stumble across what is, in our honest opinion, the best kept secret in Cape Town. It truly is a home from home: very comfortable and tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean rooms set in beautiful gardens. Warm and welcoming staff, and the host/owner, Ralf, is...

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Ralf's Little Lemon Tree last Feb (2013). We loved the place from the minute we stepped inside. We had tea sent up to our room almost immediately. It was a wonderful to just sit back and relax that first couple of hours after our long journey from Mumbai. Ralf was most helpful...

This is my fourth visit to the Little Lemon in Antrim Road, Green Point, Cape Town and there is absolutely no need for me to write yet another review as last year the Little Lemon won an award for Excellence and not before time. What is about this 12 roomed accommodation that is so different? Ralf Schaefer is the captain...

Thanks to Ralf, his staff and his dogs, we had a great stay during our six day visit in Cape Town. The rooms are pretty big and I think each room has a patio or terrace. Breakfast is served outdoors each day in a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Ralf is a great help with organizing trips in or around...

“I like the rooms on the 1st floor better than the ones on the ground floor. Try to get the one facing the street with the outdoor bathtub on your balcony :-)”

“Depending on your tastes consider to ask for either the old house which is antique and very well restored or new house which is modern and made to look like the old one in a very tasteful manner Personally I seem to think Cape Town is one of the best Cities in the World ,it certianly is unique and might not necessarily be cost effective to visit for ever”
