What a wonderful welcome and stay. We loved every minute of our stay and would like to thank Gillian for everything. It is a magical place - if we ever get back to the Cape we will see you again!

What a quiet, charming and inviting Guest House with a fabulous Hostess, Gillian. It was a pleasure to stay where the amenities were beyond expectation, breakfast experience wonderful and delicious. Tea / coffee service in our room each evening made going to sleep on most comfortable beds even better! Gillian is a wealth of knowledge regarding South African culture and location. Most recommended!

The friendly and inviting atmosphere of this guest house sets it in a class of its own. No detail has been spared in providing for every need and creature-comfort. Glynn and Gill have managed to create a home from home. We were treated to a 5-star breakfast served efficently and tastefully. The decor with its undertones of Africa lends elegance, stylish warmth and charm to this exceptional guesthouse. The panoramic views from every room and balcony are addictive - and more so when the name Moonglow is illustrated by the path of moonlight across False Bay at night. This surely should be every visitor's first choice of accomodation! Thank you Gill and Glynn for a wonderful stay!

This Guest House offers a lovely setting, beautiful views, and the breakfast and hospitality are excellent. We found our room to be extremely comfortable, well equipped, clean and of a very high standard. Thanks to Gillian and her staff, as well as to St Luke’s Hospice – we were privileged to have won this bid on their Auction Site and are pleased to have made a contribution to their worthy cause.

Home away from home. The view is spectacular, and Gillian a fabulous people's person. It was pure luck that we found your guest house, but be assured that we won't forget you or your hospitality, Gillian! To any-one planning a visit to the area, do yourself a favor and book your stay right now!
