Quality guesthouse in a great area
The guesthouse is well-run, clean, and comfortable, with excellent and friendly hosts. The guesthouse is also well-located in Green Point - safe, close to the V&A Waterfront, and a short Uber ride from most major tourist attractions in Cape Town.

Simple, clean, convenient
A clean and quiet spot, close to the Waterfront. The room we had was clean and a good size, with a nice ensuite shower room. Parking was an issue - we had to park a couple of streets away which was a bit of a nuisance, but we were there at peak time (Christmas) so it may be better at other times. There was no view out of the window (next door's wall and aircon unit), and the carpets were a bit "tired", but the owner was very nice and helpful, and overall very good value for money.
