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.
