Started our Southern African holiday here. Good location. Walked to the V & A waterfront. Ed was welcoming and the Proprty was clean and facilities good.

What a great find! Thank you, Eduard, for making our stay so pleasant. This is the perfect area from which to explore Cape Town. You are close enough to the city to get into town within minutes, park and roam. And you are in great proximity to beaches and the whole cape peninsula. The guesthouse is beautifully decorated and provides for every need with access to the kitchen, internet and even laundry! It is within really easy walking distance to plenty of restaurants and grocery stores if you need. You will feel like you are home. Everything about this place is just right. Don't hesitate to contact Eduard and book your room.

Ed runs a clean, safe guesthouse. You will be guaranteed to recover from jet lag in a quiet, serene setting. Bantry Bay is beautiful and near the beaches. The guesthouse is close to dining, groceries, and the Hop On Hop Off bus that can take you around Cape Town. The only drawback is that you are a little removed from the happenings downtown. If you want a quiet retreat, this is for you. If you need travel services and recommendations, you may want to get your recommendations in advance. Ed arranged the City Hopper bus for us from the airport. The room was small but had style, a comfortable bed, and a tea kettle for your morning fix. Communal kitchen facilities were clean and well-maintained. Wireless internet usage was limited but adequate. This is the best value for your money in Cape Town.

We stayed 9 days at the Bantry Bay Guesthouse and loved it. Very reasonably priced ($45 USD/night) for the nice upscale seafront area of Bantry Bay. All other accomodation in the area is much more expensive. It really felt like our home away from home and the owner, Ed, was so gracious and hospitable. He did our laundry for free and free internet was a bonus! The house is very tastefully decorated. We loved our stay and would love to return someday!! Highly recommended!
