Samhitakasha Cob House Organic B&B
Ranked #5 of 14 Muizenberg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 October 2013

I stayed here with my wife and son around Easter 2013. The house and its story are fantastic, and the owners friendly and helpful. The location is excellent for anything to the south of Cape Town, e.g. the Cape peninsula, and convenient for the airport too. It's a bit of a distance into the city itself, which might be offputting for some but we were fine driving in when we wanted to.

We would recommend this to anyone.

The Cob House is a beautiful natural experience. The room is peaceful, clean and an unique experience as all the materials are entirely natural. I had a lovely stay, with the sea air blowing past, a mountain view, and a gorgeous garden below the window.
Its very near the ocean and its a short walk from the house to a beautiful long white beach.
Muizenberg has a lovely village feel, with a street and beachfront hub of little shops and restaurants nearby, and a night market nearby on a Friday evening.
The Yarrow's are a lovely family. I'd recommend a stay here!

In just a few words, my boyfriend and I found this unique place: very charming, with the most comfortable bed (not to be neglected!), a cozy atmosphere,a delicious breakfast.The beach is 5 minutes walk and the temperature allows you to swim (unlike the other side of Cape Town).
Thanks to Simric and Carey for a great concept!
We definately recommend this place.

The cob house is a great place to stay! My son named it 'the Eco place' and said only I could have found a place with no television! I chose this B&B because I lived in a Cob house in Devon as a child. I loved the decoration and the fact that everything was environmentally friendly and unique. The breakfast was delicious and Smric, the girls and the dogs were delightful. We also loved the little bunny rabbits! Great location - near the beach and good for touring Cape Point.
I do hope to return one day!

Simric stayed up to welcome me after my night arrival. The hosts provided breakfast at the time I requested both days. The family also has a friendly dog who enjoys being petted. Walking distance to beach and train station. Recommended for Muizenberg.

We had a great time staying at the Samhitakasha Cob House. The owners were friendly and gave us good advice. Our favorite part, though was the breakfast, which was delicious. It's location is good, within walking distance of the beach. It's accessible to both capetown and Cape Point.
