Wow! What a find this place was! For some reason we decided to stay out of town (this was my third time in Cape Town) and this little gem popped up when we looked at Green Point.
The room was just pure class: one wall was floor-to-ceiling windows; white walls tastefully ornamented here and there; queen-sized bed with a fabulously elegant mohair, feather and bead throw across the foot of it; the best bathroom I've ever had the use of, half pebble-clad walls, twin basins and a walk-in shower big enough to get the South African rugby team in with a plentiful and powerful supply of hot water.
The rest of the house was equally elegant and I got the impression that everything, from the furniture to coffee table books had been agonised over before (correct!) choices were made.
The breakfast buffet was top class with locally baked bread and freshly brewed coffee top of my list. There were also cold meats, cheeses and pastries. Eggs were cooked to order. Perfect.
Lest I forget, the house wine (around £10 a bottle) was most excellent value and in good supply.
The views from our room (over the terrace, pool, seating area, loungers and life-size, very real-looking aligator) looked out to sea and the new 2010 World Cup stadium being built (off to the right so not really an eyesore!).
Last and far from least, the staff and owners...What a lovely bunch of people! Lo, Peter and Frank, the owners, shared many a bottle of wine with us and advised us on the best places to eat (Cape Town is great for foodies!) whilst sharing many a joke. Martin, the night-manager, is full of local information and a great source for of what's happening in South African politics (if you can get him to stay still and chat!).
This boutique guest house (a really downmarket description for what it is!) is within about 15 minutes walking distance of the city and the V&A Waterfront and taxis are very cheap for those of you who 'don't do walking'.
I've stayed 4* in Cape Town on other occasions and dysART was MUCH better than that. I hope it's still there when the football has been and gone as I so much want to return.

We stayed for a week and the team running the hotel (although it feels more like staying with friends) are very hospitable, helpful, and their main goal is for you to have a great time.
Location is quiet but within easy reach of a majority of things you will want to do.
Rooms are great and extremely comfortable whilst stylish and with amazing showers!!
Breakfast would cater for everyone and set you up for the day.
Their tips and assistance just make your trip that much more enjoyable.
Thanks for a superb week :)

Liked - everything
disliked - nothing at all
We spend a week there in March and we could happily stay for a month.
The guesthouse is nicely done, simple and stylish with some distinstive modern and african art pieces as well. The rooms are bright and functional, we really liked the pebble tiled bathroom. Basically, everything is very new and modern, yet very cosy and warm! Our room had a patio as well, cute garden and outdoors shower : perfect to sunbathe and chill in the afternoon.
Breakfast is great either by the pool or at your room's patio - all freshly made and delicious! and always served with a big smile!
What makes the place so unique are the people : Lo, Frank and Peter obviously enjoy Cape Town and that's how they decided to start Dysart! Now they make sure you also get the best out of it, recommending the best restaurants and bars in town, arranging trips for you, sharing some lovely wine by the pool in the evening.
And the best thing is that nothing feels "pre packaged" or artificial : you feel you are among friends who will try to make your holiday unforgettable!
Great place, we hope to make it back there soon!

Perfect place to relax and unwind but also conveniently located for those who wish to explore Cape Town and beyond. The owners and staff are very friendly and happy to help and advise on trips, tours, restaurants, etc. The guest house is tastefully designed with a contemporary feel, rooms are clean (as everywhere throughout), spacious and stylish. The pool is perfect for a refreshing dip and big enough for an energetic swim. Personally, I do not hesitate in recommending a stay here whether for a couple of nights or a couple of weeks. My stay at the DysArt was simply delightful and I would happily stay there again.

We spent a weekend in Cape Town on a whim and found the dysART online at the last minute. We weren't really sure what to expect.

We arrived to find an intimate and elegant boutique hotel in an absolutely gorgeous setting. The rooms are truly 5 star, with beautiful stone bathrooms, LED lighting, comfy beds and minibars stocked with delicious South African wines. Breakfast is included and can be served in the dining room, on the patio by the pool or in your room.

The owners - a husband and wife team from Germany - couldn't have been friendlier. Each of their restaurant recommendations was fantastic and the wine they served us in their beautiful pool area was great. They seem to take great pride in their adopted city. I will definitely be back on my next trip to Cape Town.
