We spent four nights at Alta Bay. Beulah, Stephan and Bruno were excellent hosts and really went above and beyond to make us feel at home.
They recommended and reserved restaurants for us every day of our stay.
After discussing the kind of activities we personally enjoy, they helped us plan our days. As a result, we didn't waste time looking at that we didn’t want, just because everyone else likes to go there. We therefore explored a mixture of 'touristy' and 'resident' attractions.
Our room was the Bay Suite which was large and well styled. It had a small private terrace with great views.
The larger shared terrace and plunge pool area were also perfect to drink the odd glass of wine with friends. All of these things contributed to making this place very special for us. If you stay in Cape Town this is one of the best place to stay.

I stayed at Alta Bay for 4 nights and can't say enough about how helpful Bruno and Stephan were in suggesting activities, restaurants and shopping for groceries etc. We did not have a car and Bruno ( knowing we wanted to see the sights!) suggested and booked a wonderful tour for us to Cape Point , Boulders beach and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Park. They even arranged for us to stay in our lodging until 8PM the night of our departure so we did not have to spend so many hours at the Capetown Airport. Our beds were very comfortable, having the small kitchen was very useful and we appreciated the housekeeping and laundry service. You won't be sorry if you stay here!

Its like a charming 'secret' guesthouse, nettled away in beautiful surroundings and offers a great location for getting out and about as well as being nearby a plentiful supply of delicious local restaurants.

Their hospitality is the best I had seen in South Africa and was the final stay of 4 different places I had stayed in, it was a great end to a wonderful trip. I will be staying here on my next visit to Cape Town.

Stephan and Beulah Cogels made us very welcome. We only had a few days in Cape Town but Stephan was very helpful in suggesting the highlights to do and see, and supplied us with a map for hiking up Table Mountain, (very steep, not for the unfit and faint-hearted ). The accommodation was very comfortable, private, quiet, non-smoking, safe - and just what we needed. The pool is lovely and refreshing after a hike the mountain. A perfect location and base for exploring Cape Town and has good views of the mountain and the city.

Stayed: March 2017, travelled as a couple

Nothing is too much trouble for Bruno, his service is outstanding! From restaurants to "things to do", every and each of our request was organised ...We really enjoyed our stay at this shaded heaven on the foot of table mountain. It is such a relaxing and quiet place, you cannot believe you're so close to the hustle and bustle of the city!
So much care was given to us, we didn't want to leave!
Great great great experience!
