We stayed here with our baby daughter and found our hosts to be very accommodating and helpful. If you are looking for a quiet place by the water with great views, then I would recommend it.

Management response:

Hi Mark Glad you enjoyed your stay and that the holiday worked out well with your baby daughter along. Kind regards Ruby

Use the N2 from the Airport heading towards Cape Town. Look out for M3 South to Muizenberg which turns left off the N2 just before reaching the mountain - the sign also mentions Kirstenbosch. Continue with the M3 South to Muizenberg. Turn left at traffic lights at Checkers in Muizenberg into Atlantic Beach Road, go under railway bridge. Follow road around past the Super Tube, bear right until you reach Sunrise Circle. Turn left into Prince George Drive and take the 3rd left into Battleridge Road. You are now in Marina da Gama. Go straight at stop street, bear left into Admiral's Walk. Kingfisher Cottage is on the right towards the end of the cul de sac.
