About Poseidon Guest House
Life partners, Danie van der Heever and Janni van Staden, spent most of their lives working in creative industries and media. Janni is a film art director and Danie began his working life as a graphic designer, moving on to the music industry, managing artists and finally producing film.
In 2015 they decided to move back to Cape Town, the city in which they were both born and bought and renovated a property in one of Cape Town's most beautiful neighbourhoods, Hout Bay. The result is Poseidon Guest House. A home they share with their two good natured dogs; Bella and Kenzo.
All our rooms have en suite bathrooms, with shower and bath and toiletries and towels provided. All rooms have views over Hout Bay and the harbour, across the bay to Chapman’s Peak and the property borders a fynbos reserve.
Breakfast & Dining
Our rates include breakfast, which is a combination of a continental and hot breakfast. We do like to provide some surprises and inform guests as to any options in advance.
Meals can also be provided from the kitchen subject to prior arrangements. A menu with rates is supplied in room.
While close enough to Cape Town's CBD to enjoy what the city has to offer, Hout Bay surrounds its own Atlantic Seaboard bay and harbour, with the world famous Chapman's Peak in close proximity.
Not only does Hout Bay offer some of the most beautiful surroundings and beaches in Cape Town, but also offers a wide range of tourist activities e.g. cycling routes, horse trails, hiking trails, water sports and craft and food markets, for both the younger set, as well as those who just want a relaxing break.
Should guests require public transport, the MyCity bus route passes right in front of the property with a stop no more than 200m from the gate. Airport transfers and additional transport can also be arranged on request.
