High up, on the slopes of Lion’s Head Mountain, you’ll feel the sun, but not the wind. Ocean, stretching further than the eye can see. The South Atlantic, home to passing pods of dolphins and whales. Cape Town with its lively Waterfront is just along the coastline, a 15-minute drive down through Sea Point. Inside, luxurious en-suite rooms; each one designed and furnished to make your stay with us relaxing and your time here feeling far too short. Come for a holiday, for business, an intimate wedding or family celebration. Our warmest welcome is waiting.

Hi, Sadly we do not accept children under the age of 12years. With lots of open balconies, stairways and sheer drops we feel it is too much of a risk. Kind Regards, Marnie Fennell

My first time in Cape Town and I was REALLY glad I rented a car. It was cheap and the driving was not that difficult. It also made it easy to see special sights like Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden- fabulous and Boulder Bay where we were surrounded by penguins up close! If you don't have a car, they serve a fairly priced, FABULOUS dinner there if you arrange with a bit of notice. There is also delivery services that bring dinner to the B & B.
