We booked for two nights but left after the first. The room was run down and the bathroom door almost fell on my wife. The door, which was of no use anyway as it was so small that the gaps on the sides and bottom allowed no privacy in the bathroom and there wasn't even a door handle on the...

My wife and i spent 3 days at this awesome place. Views are spectacular and the proprietor, Dirk, was super friendly and gave some really good hints of whereto visit in Cape Town. The sunrise room was more than adequate for us. Thanks Dirk for a wonderful experience.

For the best views over Sea Point, nothing beats Villa Stella Maris! And, for hospitality, nobody beats the proprietor, Dirk, Friendly, helpful, congenial; these words describe him but he is more than that. The room I took was slightly small, and the separating false wall into which I staggered in the early hours of the morning, detract from a fantastic,...

Dirk does a great job of helping you feel at home and comfortable! Great views of the ocean. Quiet area of the city. Great location for walking the ocean front. We would stay there if we ever return to Cape Town in the future.

The host Dirk and his staff made us feel really welcome when we arrived, and given that we only had a short time in the area, helped out with our travel and accommodation arrangements. The location as really convenient for the centre but in a quite part of town. The room was spacious, with a great view of the sea,...
