About Sonnekus Guest House
Sonnekus Guest House, gracious old lady of a bygone era, circa 1926, sits at the base of the mountains in St James with the waters of False Bay at her feet. The house has been lovingly restored to her former splendour, taking the guests comfort into consideration with each suite very individual in its decor.
Sonnekus Guest House is perfectly situated for the discerning holidaymaker and businessman alike, a mere 25 minutes form the airport and city. The V & A Waterfront and Table Mountain are but a short and pleasant drive away.
