My friend and I stayed one night at Roosje van de Kaap and for the money we paid the place was really nice. The rooms are small - but you can sit outside in their garden and there is also a pool. The restaurant was closed when we were there but there is a nice pizza place just around the corner from the guest house.

Roosje van de Kaap was a great choice of bed and breakfast. The most romantic and furnished room, quit situated, very very kind staff and a lovely breakfast. There is even a possibility to have breakfast outside.

Roosje van de Kaap feels like a second home.
The owners Freerk and Helpi are very kind and did everything to make our stay unforgettable. It was clean. Good beds. And a nice small pool.
A very good breakfast. Also positive is the "in house" restaurant. It is romantic, the quality of the food is very good. Good information about trips.
We can recommend a stay at Roosje van de Kaap.

After sharing dormitories with bunk beds with 6 couples on the De Hoop Whale TRail for 5 nights, we felt that we owed ourselves a treat! Rosje van de Kaap was it!!

What a welcome delight - beautiful, private cottages with luxurious linen, hot showers and gorgeous decor. The service was wonderful and the meals fantastic. Freerk opened the restaurant for us on Easter Sunday and I had the best bobotie I have ever tasted.!

Will definitely recommend to our friends and would do it all again!

We had a lovely stay at Roosje van de Kaap

Service was excellent and went out of their way to make us feel special

We arrived late and they kept the kitchen open for us to have dinner and the port is a must try

Their food is delicious, I especially enjoyed the bobotie

Thank you for everything!

Very pretty location, with a lovely garden and pool with a short walk to main street and restaurants with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in the an annex room which was rather small, but had a patio. The room had no air conditioning, but did have a fan which helped a bit, though it was still very warm during the night. We stayed on a Sunday night, and unfortunately the property's own restaurant was closed, but found a pleasant restaurant within easy walking distance.
