What really stood out for us, is that is beautifully put together, the hosts were gracious and hospitable, the views are to die for. It has an air of relaxation about it and the beautiful art infusion makes it truly exceptional. We shall definitely be back seeing that it is a stone throw from Cape Town.

We stayed for two nights, which wasn't long enough, at this beautiful guesthouse in Gordon's Bay, hear Cape Town. Fantastic accommodation and views from the deck in front of our room, really friendly and helpful owners/hosts and great food. Not to be missed if you are traveling to Cape Town.

By far the best guest house we have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Felt completely at home as soon as you stepped in the door. Hospitality top class. Both sea and mountain views to die for and every single little detail taken care off. Does not get better than that and will certainly be back!
