A delightful secret of Blouberg Strand. We were pleasantly surprised with this stunning location and accommodation. One of the highlights is to walk onto the roof early morning with a view of Table Mountain and Robbin Island. Breakfast is absolutely delicious and recommended. Looking forward to visiting this location again.

This was a really cozy little guesthouse in a great location in Bloubergstrand. Close to beaches and surrounding amenities. The rooms are clean and tidy and quite spacious and the staff are most accommodating and friendly, I would highly recommend staying at the Secret Garden Guesthouse .

Very average accommodation, had to ask for toilet paper for the room, batteries for the remote, very limited TV stations, was busy watching a show and then the program was abruptly changed as the decoder remote is obviously held in 1 room, probably wouldn't stay there again, no parking, the host was friendly and helpful though.

The rooms are clean, huge and has everything you can think of you would have at your home. The host is super friendly and very accommodating. The place is a bit far from the city but is still near a beautiful beach and in a very safe area.

Dear Taher, We are pleased you enjoyed your stay! The value, space and homely feel offered by us does not exist in the city centre. At our boutique guesthouse you can enjoy the world famous views of Table Mountain, pristine beaches, quality coffee shops, restaurants and shops and it's only a short 25 minute drive into the City Centre. Hope...

Good location in Bloubergstrand (2min drive away from beach and within 5-15min driving range some cafés, restaurants and shops) with amazing views towards Cape Town's Table Mountain and Lion's Head. It's also a great place for kite surfers (Bloubergstrand in general) - some surfing, beach breaks, (if wind is weak) in Big Bay/5min drive, but super cold water (12-15 degrees...
