We stayed in the African Room for 3 nights in early April and couldn't have been more delighted that we chose this guest house. It exceeded all our expectations and was far bigger and more luxious than their site might suggest.
The negative review on this site I feel is wholly unfair and unwarranted and might put some guests off staying at this amazing place. Firstly, it is hardly the fault of the guesthouse that reviewer found the road network confusing (and the owner provides clear directions to find the guesthouse easily), secondly they do provide you with information on when breakfast is in a letter placed in your room when you arrive, thirdly, the staff are very friendly and helpful at all times and fourthly the owners are most helpful at answering any questions you might have & always came back to us quickly if they weren't available on every occasion we may have wanted to speak to them. Furthermore, the appeal of this guesthouse is surely the fact it is the highest house in Camps Bay, thus has the best views, so I would have thought it fairly obvious it would not be within easy walking distance of the beach.
We stayed at more than 8 guest houses during our whole trip and this was our favourite. We felt secure at all times, found the staff to be attentive when necessary but not overly imposing and the rooms were exeptionally clean and contained everything you could possibly need. The best part was the view, mountains sitting behind your room, the sea in sprawlled out in front, stunning panoramic views over the bay and your own private jacuzzi from which you could relax watching the sun set over the ocean.
Total Tranquility, whilst being a home away from home. If you want to stay in Camps Bay, enjoy peace and quiet and beautiful views We would highly recommend this guesthouse!!
