Also your (rental) car could be...

What a great stay! We raced Xterra Grabouw and stayed two nights at Peter and Carola's magnificent guest house. What was great? Everything. From the nicely appointed rooms and baths, breakfast, honor bar with snacks, the property, the views, and just 20 min. From the race site. Peter and Carola are fabulous hosts that made our stay warm and personal....

Brilliant guest house with excellent hosts. Pool, hammocks, balconies, great breakfast and the most comfy beds. Couldn't have asked for better, we will be back! Located with great views of the mountains yet easily accessible to restaurants in Gordons bay. Just a great retreat!

A lovely guesthouse run by a lovely couple. They were warm and friendly and made our stay really enjoyable. The guest house is beautiful and the gardens were stunning. A little haven away from the city (but close enough to everything to enjoy it all!) Stayed with my husband and 2 year old and they were wonderful with her.

Our stay at the Wind-Rose Guest House was a memorable one. Our room was spacious and modern. The garden was beautiful and was surrounded by fynbos. We met the owner who was very friendly and helpful. We fall in love with the Wind-Rose Guest House and will make our way back again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled at the foot of the Hottentots Holland Mountain range, below Sir Lowry's pass, Wind-Rose Guest House and conference facility overlooks False Bay from Cape Point to Table Mountain in the distance. Located on 2 acres of indigenous gardens, we offer an escape from the hustle and bustle of City life, while still being close enough to enjoy all the best that the "Mother" City has to offer. The Guest House is centrally located in an area that offers restaurants, beaches, horseback riding, bird watching, hiking trails, deep sea fishing, water skiing, diving, whale watching and wine tasting. Our recreational room opens to an outside barbeque area where we can do a traditional South African braai (barbeque) while guests enjoy a refreshing drink of choice at our fully licensed bar or socialize with friends in our informal lounge area. For the fitness enthusiast we also have a fully equipped gym with treadmill, cross trainer, rowing machine, bicycle, weight machine etc. ... more   less
