What a fantastic place! We were looking for a safe, comfortable place to stay that would also take care of the details of all of the sightseeing, shopping, and excursions we wanted to do and Seamore express far exceeded our expectations. We sent Kurt a list of things we wanted to do while in the Cape Town area and he devised a program for us taking into account the weather, timing, preferences and organized everything for us! You will not get this kind of personalized service anywhere else! We saw table mountain on the best weather day, not according to a rigid itinerary. We are able to see everything we wanted to plus a bunch of extras such as an epic drive around Huot Bay and a shopping outing that included outlet malls, a giant mall, and the V & A waterfront. Everyday we had a itinerary of things to do that was flexible enough that we could add more or take out stuff as we wanted. It was perfect. The all inclusive price for accommodations and all tours was ridiculously reasonable compared to other tour operators. Kurt has actually been asked by the tourism board to increase their prices as other guesthouses and hotels are being overlooked because their prices are so much higher. He has flatly refused to do this. Also, Kurt uses a van and not a giant bus, making it easier to get to all the places you want to see.
Staying at this place is like staying with friends you didn't know you had in Cape Town. We felt so at home at the Guesthouse, eating dinners together, meeting the owners friends and fur friends, and having a genuine experience of how life is in Cape Town. Kurt and R.J are very knowledgeable about everything we wanted to know and do and are amazing hosts.
The people of Cape Town are so lovely.I always felt safe and Kurt was able to dispel many of the myths I read on the internet before coming. To illustrate the kind and genuineness of these people, we arrived late and needed to do laundry. We went to the laundry place around the corner at 430 pm and they were closing at 5 pm. The lovely owners stayed 45 minutes past their closing to ensure our clothes were dry and chatted with us the whole time. Kurt came shopping with my friend and I and pointed out stores for specific things we were looking for.
The guesthouse is immaculate. The rooms are spotless, comfortable beds, nice shower, great towels, a giant closet and separate dressing room. The kitchen is also spotless with everything you might need, although we ordered food most times as it was insanely cheap and delicious!
They have a lovely garden, small pool and lovely outdoor area for hanging out as well as a common room with comfy furniture and a giant projector screen for watching movies etc.
We are so, so glad we booked at this place. I have traveled to over 35 countries over the last 10 ten years and have never had an experience like this in any city. I really felt like I was living in Cape Town with friends for a short while, it is a city and an experience I will never forget
