Stayed with my young son for an extended period and in both the garden unit as well as upstairs. The garden calms you down after a busy day and the breakfasts are the best for kicking off a great day! Michelle really makes you feel incredibly welcome. Close by is Kommetjie beach for nice walks (150m away). There are a...

Michelle and her Guinea Fowl House really exceeded my expectations! She goes the extra mile to help and make sure that your stay is comfortable and pleasurable. The room was beautifully decorated, neat, clean and spacious, with a lovely view over the adjoining wetland. The night was filled with gentle frog song and being so close to the shore one...

I spent the night as a single traveller, looking to get away from the city bustle. And this place certainly assisted in the relaxation. My room had a lovely outlook on the common below, I drove to Scarborough and around Kommetjie, very pretty village. Flamingos in the bay, white sandy beach covered in kelp looking onto Hout bay and the...

Set a minute's walk back from a beautiful white sandy beach, Guinea Fowl guest house borders on a wetland with exquisite sea and nature views. There are hardly any lights at night and tons of birdsong in the day. Owner, Michele has brought her artistic touch to the entire guesthouse and garden, which is comfortable and peaceful. Everything you need...

This is a really lovely place, and well worth the price of a room. Michele is very welcoming and thanks to Vonge (sorry I think that is the right spelling but apologies if it is wrong!) the place is immaculately clean. Vonge also makes really delicious breakfasts! Michele will tell you of all the wonderful things you can do locally...

I don't live far from Kommetjie but sometimes it's just nice to get away from everything and unwind. The Guinea Fowl House allowed us to do just that! The house has three rooms - we stayed in one of the rooms on the top level. Everything was clean and well presented...not to mention there is a lovely view from where...

I live in Cape Town and was looking for a quiet getaway and found this gem on TripAdvisor. The house is so inviting and lovely as the host, Michele, herself. Perfectly situated at the end of a road, right next to the nature reserve and a one minute walk away from Long Beach. The view from the balcony, all the...
