“Excellent location! And such wonderful hosts.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

This location is just South of Cape Town and North of Cape Point. It is the perfect distance from both and not in the busy city center. We spent our evenings enjoying dinner at various restaurants off the Cape and Ocean. The views were amazing. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and assisted me with daily plans and some must see sites. I lost my iPad on the plane in Germany, which had our itenery, and they (our hosts) went out of their way to assist with building a new one and recommending things to do throughout our trip. They made us feel at home! What more can you ask for? Thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable!

Side note, do to many of the stories and comments on hotels and locations about auto thefts, I was particular about booking a gated and secure parking location. This location is fully gated. I never had a concern for safety while there. That was exactly what I was looking for.

I had a wonderful stay at Cap Serine. The room I stayed in was gorgeous; wonderful space, an excellent newly furnished bathroom and a very comfy bed. Petra and Kurt are excellent hosts and ensured that all my needs were met. Breakfast was really nice with an excellent selection on offer. There is both a swimming pool and Jacuzzi on offer to relax in. The view from the guesthouse is stunning, with good company, a nice glass of South African wine provided everything required for a perfect evening! I will definitely be staying again in the future and I would highly recommend to stay!

We spent 8 days at this beautiful guest house which was ideally situated for Hout Bay and Constantia. Our room was really comfortable and we were well looked after during our time here. Would definitely recommend this place.

My husband and I just returned from our stay in South Africa. Due to a booking mistake on our part we found ourselves without reservations during the peak holiday season. Fortunately with much luck on our part we found Cap Serein Guest House in Hout Bay. We were delighted in our stay. The location puts you not only in a beautiful spot but you also can get to all the highlights that one desires be it exploring the beaches, going to the wine country, Table Mountain, downtown Cape Town, etc. Petra was wonderful and gave us excellent advice on where to go and what to do. Don't miss dining at their restaurant in Hout Bay. Wonderful food! We hope to go back for another visit.

Room Tip: We stayed in the cottage called Marseille. Loved it. Very roomy and comfortable.

My wife and I do not write many reviews on trip advisor , especially critical reviews because most guest houses and hotels are trying to offer the best possible experience for their guests in these difficult financial times. However when we encounter excellence we feel obliged to share our experience .
We recently stayed for 4 nights at Cap Serein and had the privilege to meet Petra who welcomed us to her beautiful guest house. One could spend hours writing in great detail but if one is travelling to Cape Town why not experience for yourselves this stunning guest house with fantastic facilities to suit all guests, and located in the most beautiful part of Cape Town .You will not be disappoined this place is fantastic.
Thank you Petra for your wonderful hospitality.

Cap Serein is a peaceful, picturesque haven overlooking Hout Bay. Petra and Kurt are delightful hosts, who make you feel very welcome and offer unintrusive help and advice. This is an ideal place from which to enjoy the ambiance of Hout Bay and the superb surrounding countryside all the way down to the tip of the Cape Peninsula; into Cape Town or across to False Bay. The Guest House is an ideal place in which to relax amidst stunning scenery.
