We had such a great stay here that we cut our travels short and came back to spend a few more days here! I wish we could have stayed longer. There's so much to say, but the highlights... The outside area is just fantastic and was a real highlight of the trip. The gardens have been beautifully kept, and the... More

Now this is what I call a great Guest House. We stayed at the Camps Bay Ridge for 6 nights in January 2015. The place offers a very warm and welcoming atmosphere - so if you're looking for this, look no further! Shops and the beach are within walking distance downhill, cabs to get back are rather cheap. I'd recommed... More

Awesome hospitality, our host was very welcoming and accommodated all of our last minute plans. The pool area sold it. Something a bit different in Camps Bay, I'd recommend it and will be back! ................................

We stayed with Joerg for five nights this month, and we loved every minute of it! The guesthouse is situated in a quiet part of Camps Bay - about 15 mins walk to the beach, and just 5 mins drive to the Table mountain cablecart and the downtown Capetown area. Camps Bay is very safe and enjoyable for a stay... More

Camps bay ridge is excellent! We stayed there for 8 nights in early December and it was delightful. As we booked late we needed to change rooms, although rather than say they had no availability they offered to help us move smoothly during our stay. We stayed in three different rooms, the loft room, garden room and double with balcony.... More

I said we would be back and I can confirm CBR is just as delightful as our last visit. Joerg has been busy in the last year and is installing even more creativity and flair into the garden. If you are looking for the perfect location in Camps Bay, laid back and delightful setting, friendliness and wit of the owner... More

“Joerg showed us around the whole house. Our favourites were the Coner room and 'our' room next to the loft. If you are on a budget the garden room although smaller and without a view is perfectly practicable.”
