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.

ACCOMMODATION

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.

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.

Please see the individual room descriptions with photographs below, to assist you with your choice.

Breakfast and Dining

Expect superb breakfasts in our sunroom, with cooked fare and a selection of home-baked pastries getting your day off to a hearty start. You can also see Kurt’s dinner menu and decide if you’d like to stay in for the evening. We have options for everyone; ranging from three-course meals to a simple snack to end the day.

THINGS TO DO

If you’d prefer an experienced hand to show you the splendour of the Cape, Cap Serein can arrange the services of a qualified tour guide fluent in English, German and Spanish.

Local tours could include Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Botanic Garden, V&A Waterfront and Robben Island, Cape Point Nature Reserve and Constantia Wine Route, just to mention a few.

Perfectionists Kurt and Petra have spent years travelling the world, both enjoying and providing hospitality of the highest level. Their vision for Cap Serein was to use that experience to create a haven you’ll never want to leave.

Traumurlaub- Land einfach super. Cap Serein ist einfach nur zum Empfehlen. Das Anwesend ist ruhig gelegen, wunderschöner Garten und Ausblick. Unser Zimmer war sehr ansprechend und liebevoll eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Das Frühstück ist sehr lecker. Kaffee, Tee, frische Säfte, Wurst, Käse, frische Früchte- einfach alles da. Individuelle Wünsche werden gerne erfüllt. Petra ist auch sehr hilfsbereit bei Buchungen oder Tipps für Ausflüge. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen. Vielen Dank

Verified reviewexcellent

We stayed for 10 days in Cap Serein and this was one of our highlights during our South African-journey. The place is absolutely fantastic, very picturesque and tranquil - just recommendable to everyone who loves nature and tranquility. Within 20 minutes you can drive to Cape Town. The hosts Petra and Kurt are absolutely nice and helpful and gave us a lot of tips for day-trips in and around Cape Town. The rooms are very spacious and tastefully equipped - and very clean. The breakfast was also fantastic - I would say one of the best breakfasts we had so far in South Africa - Kurt even made fresh baked cakes for breakfast. We highly recommend this place and will surely come back. Thanks to Petra and Kurt for their great hospitality!
