Wonderful Stay

Beautiful, homely, hospitality

I was wondering why all the reviews for the guest house were almost perfect - after I stayed there, I fully understood. This family-owned guest house is beautiful, warm, well-maintained, neat and clean with great hospitality. I felt I came back home although it was my first time in Cape Town.

Beautiful stay!

seaside location, easy striking distance to Cape Town, lovely view
10
We stayed 8 nights with our infant son at Sonnekus and wish we had stayed longer. Pat and Mike and their son Nicholas spare no effort in making you comfortable. The house has a wonderful feel to it and strikes a great balance between feeling like home and still giving one the sense of being pampered on holiday. The ocean is literally across the street. Parking was easy. Security was optimal. Food was delicious. Location is great, with a short walk to Kalk Bay for shopping, restaurants, etc., and a stroll along the seaside path to the larger beach at Muizenberg. We made daily excursions to Cape Town and the surrounding areas.
Restaurant Tip: Dinner at the Annex behind the bookstore in Kalk Bay: wish we had come there sooner, as it was our best meal in Cape Town.
