About Cap Serein Guest House
Hearty hospitality, unforgettable food and profound tranquillity are the hallmarks of Provence. But you needn’t go to France to enjoy all that, because Cape Town now has a Provençal guesthouse of its very own. Peaceful Cap Serein Bed and Breakfast offers all of the above.
High on the mountain slopes overlooking the fishing port of Hout Bay, the only noise you’ll encounter here is chirping birds and the occasional splash from the koi ponds. Recently restored in the style of Provence, Cap Serein is about peace, quiet and exceptional cuisine.
This detached cottage offers the utmost privacy and is ideal for longer stays. Styled with a contemporary feel and modern décor, there’s a king-size bed, a double shower, underfloor heating and heated towel rails. The cottage has private pedestrian access from the street, as well as its own terrace, living room and study area. Both the indoor and outdoor areas are spacious enough to entertain groups. There’s a fireplace, minibar and hot beverage facilities. Marseille has German satellite TV in addition to DSTV satellite channels. The Cottage is wheelchair friendly.

If you’ve come to Cape Town to relax, Cap Serein will suit you right down to the ground. The shady garden is full of nooks and crannies, with plenty of corners where you can lose yourself in a good book. Hidden pathways meander between the blue gum, lemon and olive trees.
There’s also a stunning and sunny pool terrace, where you can sunbathe and cool off while enjoying splendid views of the ocean, mountains and the village of Hout Bay.
The rooms at Cap Serein are all excellent hideaways too. Each is decorated in its own unique style, and the detached Marseille cottage is an ideal option for long-stay visitors looking for a home from home. Cap Serein guests can also expect secure off street parking and automatic lights to show the way through the garden at night.
