Marjolijn en Marc were very helpful and gave us a real warm welcome. The rooms are well decorated and clean with lots of privacy in the garden. Great breakfast as well! Noordhoek is a very nice town with a great beach.

We stayed for a couple of days in the honeymoon suite, which had a fabulous jacuzzi bath tub. Our hosts were friendly, knowledgeable and provided some great dinner locations. A must try is The Foodbarn which is a 10 minute drive away.

Perfect place to stay with the kids. Marc and Marjolijn were very helpful, also when prepping the trip. Lovely garden with two pools. The location is perfect and a perfect base for nearby activities, great restaurants are within 3-5 min drive. Ask Marc for a taxi!

Very comfortable, very relaxed guest house. The bed was wonderful and the bathroom has all the little touches that make a big difference eg enough counter space for toiletries. Well stocked bar fridge with snacks. Staff were unobtrusive, and the owner Marjolijn was very accommodating of my requests. Will definitely stay again!

I stayed at the African Queen for 4 days and I enjoyed every minute of it: lovely and spacious room, great breakfast, very friendly and helpful hosts. I liked the view of the ocean from the garden, and the Marco Polo swimming pool. Its location is good: close to Chapman's Peak Drive that will get you to Hout Bay and...

It's a quick drive from the guesthouse to Noordhoek's many attractions and in particular it's exquisite beach. We chose this area because of a family wedding. When we visited - the property was next door to a building site - however we didn't hear any noise, plus that is a temporary situation. We were given the Honeymoon suite which was...

The guesthouse is in a lovely setting and the gardens and views were just beautiful. I found the owners and the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast and papers each day were great. I think it is the perfect place for a romantic weekend. Noordhoek is more suited to couples and families in my opinion, but if...
