About Art Gallery Guesthouse - Thandekayo

The Art Gallery Guest House - Thandekayo is ideally located on the slopes of the 12th Apostle overlooking the picturesque village of Hout Bay. Positioned on the Atlantic Seaboard of the Western Cape, Thandekayo means “warm welcome” in Zulu. This gem of a guest house offers spacious, modern luxury accommodation and boasts five designer African themed rooms all en suite.

Besides its ideal location, situated a mere 20 minutes from Cape Town central, The Art Gallery Guesthouse has much to offer. From the balcony one enjoys breathtaking panoramic views, stretching from the back of Table Mountain to Chapman’s Peak and the bay itself. Owned by Anita and Martin Osner, Martin is one of South Africa’s renowned fine art photographic artists and the guest house displays exhibitions of his works as well as of other contemporary South African artists, including renowned landscape photographer and close friend Koos van der Lende.

You are invited to enjoy African hospitality at its best in a guest house that guarantees a unique and memorable stay in a location you will never forget!
