We enjoyed our stay at the Sweet Orange. The staff are all so friendly, helpful, and very professional. The house is decorated beautifully and we enjoyed sitting outside in the courtyard for breakfast each morning. The location could not get any better! It's within short walking distance to 2 of our favourite restaurants in Sea Point: La Boheme and La Perla. Not to mention the seawall which is totally safe to walk along to watch the sunset. The shower was nice - felt like we were outside with the open window and trees next to it.
A few cons: the pool didn't get much sun during the day, so it was freezing cold and only good for a quick plunge, and there was construction (or a car workshop, we never did find out) nearby and it was noisy during the day.
My fiance and I have also stayed at The Sweet Olive Guest House and we honestly preferred that property (only a few blocks away), it feels more like a 5 star for the same price. For one thing, the bathroom is about 3 times the size. However, if the Sweet Olive isn't available, definitely go ahead and book at the Sweet Orange. You won't regret it :)
