This guesthouse is situated in a nice and quiet (although it's in a big city) neighbourhood and is perfect spot to have good logistics between all the hotspots (Camps Bay, V&A Waterfront, table mountain, etc.) in Cape Town. The accommodation itself is nice and cosy and has that "feel like home vibe" which we seek in a guesthouse. Every morning... More

Very friendly owner. Good rooms. Location in a nice part of Cape Town close to shops and restaurants. It has a pool too. Breakfast was good. And all of that for a fair price. I highly recommend this place

Maarten's Guesthouse was extremely enjoyable. Room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was delicious, wifi was reliable. A nice 10 minute walk down the hill brought you to the supermarket and restaurants, and of course the ocean. I really enjoyed the fact that Maarten's offered a small refridge for guests to keep food. Made it easy to pick up a few... More

Hhhhmmm the view!!! We were welcomed by Maarten who made us feel right at home. The room was modern, neat and very comfortable - with a great balcony and stunning sea view. A tranquil atmosphere, very private - great for a break away. Central to all amenities.
