We stayed here for 6 nights, and then returned after a trip to the Garden route for one night, using one of the the guest rooms in the main house and the self-catering apartment. Had a wonderful stay, and the hosts, Colin and Mark were perfect - always willing to guide us with recommendations for things to do and eating out, and they were always spot on. There are several good restaurants within walking distance, and also a big supermarket just 5 minutes walk away, which was very useful when we self-catered.
When we stayed in the main house breakfast was included in the rate, and it was excellent.
The guest house was in a very quiet location, yet very close to the beach and local amenities, and also a quick 15 minute drive to the centre of Cape Town. It is also close to a rapid bus transit stop to the city centre, which will be very useful once that system opens in a few months time. Overall, highly recommended.
