I spent a perfect week at the Muize, and truly enjoyed relaxing at the property as well as talking easy walks to the beach and waterfront restaurants. The hosts are very kind and helpful, and taking some add-on tours of the Cape Town area was wonderful! Breakfast each morning was delicious too! I loved my stay and hope to return.

The staff were very helpful as always. My case was delayed by the airline and the staff took it in and stored it for me until I returned from my safari. As always the views from the room and the breakfasts were great.
