“Beautiful Guesthouse - highly recommendable!”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

Stayed at the Southern Cross twice during my holiday in South Africa. It's probably one of the most beautiful and most carefully looked after places in the whole area. Patricia (the owner) is super friendly and the rooms are BEAUTIFUL! You get a sea view from the shower.

The breakfast is excellent and served at your convenience. Coffee all day.

Perfect location to explore the wine region of South Africa. Short drive to Stellenbosch and Cape Town. All in all: highly recommendable!!

Room Tip: The Buffalo Suite is incredible.

Pure Violet was granted permission to shoot a couple of model portfolios at the beautiful Southern Cross Guest House. It is a perfect location for us with so many stunning backdrops to use. The decor is gorgeous and worked perfectly for our shoots. Thanks again to Southern Cross especially Patricia who was incredibly hospitable. Please view the images on Pure Violet's facebook page, they will be posted this month (July)
