The title says already everything... The guesthouse has a wonderful view over Cape Town and the owners helped us with recommandations where to go for dinner & sightseeing. The included breakfast was also delicious. We will definitiv come back when visiting Cape Town.

I've just had such a lovely stay with very professional but warm and helpful owners of this home away from home. Nothing is too much trouble for them - the breakfast is really delicious and rooms are divine! A place you want to come back to again and again.
