      A good welcome. The room was noisy, and without aircon and with a noisy fan - which meant window had to be kept open. Otherwise comfortable and thoughtfully supplied

      This was the second time we stayed in this lovely guest house. Pat, Mike and Nick are very friendly and hospitable. The location is great. We enjoyed walking along the walkway to Muizenberg or to the restaurants in Kalk Bay. The breakfast is also excellent, with a variety of fruit, cheeses and yoghurts, as well as a cooked breakfast to order. We would definitely stay there again.

      Great location for watching surfers and the sea. Pat and her family are gracious hosts. We had a beautiful room and walking distance to restaurants and shopping.

    • 10,0.Exceptional

      We spent 30 excellent nights at this guest house. Throughout our stay, we were treated like we were family and better. Pat, Mike, Nick, Alemarie, Joyce and Gladys went out of their way to make us feel at home. Our breakfasts were all great and mostly personalised by Pat or Nick. They all gave us great advice to assist in our daily travel ventures and to keep us safe. Mike saved Maureen's "life" with some help getting medication that she had left at home. We were close (walking distance) to some very nice eating places. Also a great bakery in Kalk Bay a short walk away - brownies were particularly good and it shows on our "figures". We were centrally located for what we wanted. There were plenty of UBERS available when needed. Most of all we were across the road from a nice beach...and to boot we had a beautiful room with a view of the vast ocean. Thanks so much for a great stay. We will be sure to recommend Sonnekus to our friends and family.
