                                      Loved the homeliness and the personalised service - the hosts go out of their way to ensure that all your needs are met. The area is very safe and you can walk along the beach & to the nearby shops

                                      Best friendly service ever with most tasty breakfast included. Beautiful rooms with spectacular sea views

                                      Beautiful location, walking distance to tidal pools and Kalk Bay shops, restaurants and places of interest. Hosts Pat, Mike and Nic were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Missed the signage and advice about water usage generally, but particularly in the room and bathroom considering Cape Town's water restrictions.
