Home away from home - We had an amazing stay at Marianella it was truly home away from home very comfortable and welcoming. We will definitely be returning.

The view took our breathe away! - We booked four lodgings for a trip along the garden route, starting with a weekend at the Cape with Marianella as our home base. This was our least-expensive lodging and as it sometimes goes (when it goes right!) this was also our favorite! A great layout to the house, very well-appointed and comfy with the most unadorned, spectacular views we could imagine. Wow. You cannot go wrong with this house.

Magnificent view and a lovely place to stay - The good: What an incredible view! One side of the house overlooks False Bay, and shows an ever changing vista with the sun as it traverses the sky, the mountains that form the boundaries of bay, and activity of humans including ships, boats, cars and trains. Great location for day visits to attractions in and around Cape Town and surrounds. Truly impressive.
The house is well built, warm in winter, very well set up, with lovely bed rooms, an excellent and well appointed kitchen and bathrooms, excellent bed linen etc.
The owners were most hospitable and a pleasure to deal with.
The bad: there were a couple of minor maintenance issues, which the owners said they would get fixed, but they were minor and did not stop us in any way from a memorable stay.
Summary: Very highly recommended for a visit to Cape Town and its surrounds, especially for a larger group. We were a party of 12, and took both the house and the associated small apartment, which worked out very well.

Awesome! - Spent a weekend at the house and it was very peaceful and beautiful. Even though the guest house is so small, I felt it was nice and cosy just for my BF and I. We won't mind coming again. Thanks Wilma and Malcolm.
