Great place, great hosts and a wonderful breakfast. Maarten was welcoming, flexible and a helpful. The guesthouse is located in a chique neighbourhood with a wonderful view on the Lion's head and the see. We really enjoyed our stay.

The place is quite comfortable and organized, you can feel yourself home. Maarten (the owner) is always looking for ways to make your stay more pleasant. The location is strategic and the view to Lion's Head is amazing. the place has a pool and daily delicious breakfast.

A bit of a challenge to find the property even with a GPS, or maybe because of the GPS, but we had a lovely stay, good location and a very good breakfast - give it a try - rooms are spacious, only shower in our room
