This is an unqualified positive review. The rooms are spectacular, the views likewise, the owner and staff cheerful and helpful. Plenty of beautiful hikes and drives in the Cape. Recommend harbor house restaurant in Kalk Bay, and for solid food and great local vibe, walk down to Dixie's restaurant bar at bottom of hill. Enjoy.

Fantastic views, lovely hosts, great breakfast. The photographs currently on the website do not do justice to this extremely comfortable and spacious guest house. We have been coming over to SA from UK for 35 years and this is right up there.

This is a lovely place to stay, set up in the hill away from the main road the building has stunning views out to sea and they have set up a great seating area in the room for making the most of this. The shower is great, the bed really comfortable and the breakfast a serious meal! I would reccommend
