Such a nice guesthouse! We had our own little 'house', very much room and nicely decorated. The breakfasts were very good, and the staff was friendly! When we arrived at 6 pm, the gate was closed, and we had to call someone to come and open, and check us in. Waited a couple of minutes. After all; Worth every penny!

This is a lovely little spot, 5mins walk from sea point, which is full of nice little restaurants and coffee shops and practically on the promenade. The guest house is very homely, i stayed in the house opposite the reception, which is a gorgeous little yellow home, decorated with an old 'skill english feel to it. It was clean and...

We could not believe that...
