My girlfriend and I had the most wonderful stay here. We booked it for a month and a bit as we were based at Red Cross Hospital. Michelle and Steve are the most caring hosts we have encountered and the house has everything you need! The living room is spacious, beds are comfortable and a fully functioning kitchen. They even have a braai pit! The location is perfect, not too far away from everything and it is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood. I would recommend it to anyone coming to cape town!

Robin's Nest is an ideal base in a quiet part of Cape Town to explore and visit all the attractions of the Cape. Michelle and Steve are great hosts and always willing to give advice and help without being in any way overbearing - a perfect blend! They made our tour through the Garden route and Route 62. We stayed first one day longer because it was the best location to visit around Cape Town. And we came back to relax one night before we had to leave Cape Town back to Germany. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and relaxing, with a private patio area for outdoor breakfast or dining. You are free to use the swimming pool and may park your car inside. We would always recommend to stay there. Write an Email to them and they will always reply shortly to you. Have a great time!

What a wonderful place to stay! Michelle and Stephen were the best hosts providing us with a lovely, comfortable, clean guest house and grounds, plus a secure place to park our car. They also gave us valuable information, advice about getting around, and things to see . And it was so nice to get to know them and share our adventures. We highly recommend staying at the Robin's Nest! It's the best!!

My stay at Robin's Nest exceeded all of my expectations. Michelle and Steve went above and beyond to ensure my visit in Cape Town was as comfortable as could be. From suggesting fun activities to do around the city to helping arrange my lifts to work in the mornings, I couldn't have asked for better hosts. I hope to stay here again next time I am in Cape Town. I highly suggest Robin's Nest for anyone looking to have an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

For us as a couple Robin's Nest is an ideal base in a quiet part of Cape Town from which to explore and visit all the attractions of the Cape. It's location makes it easy to get onto just about any route in and around Cape Town. The accommodation is comfortable, neat and relaxing, with a private patio area for "barbies" and alfresco dining. Separated from the main house by a swimming pool, it feels very private. Michelle and Steve are great hosts and always willing to give advice and help without being in any way overbearing - a perfect blend! We have stayed at Robin's Nest a number of times and it remains our first choice for accommodation in Cape Town.

Staying at Robin,s Nest B and B made our stay in Cape Town , the best holiday to date. We were warmed by Michelle and Stephen,s hospitality and their concern and care for us . After a long trip we arrived to find milk in the fridge, coffee, tea and essentials one would normally have to rush out and buy before you can put your feet up. This really meant a lot to us . Our two week stay in March 2010, will always bring back sweet memories for us , after A WONDERFUL STAY.

What a fabulous B and B! We have been back several times and thoroughly enjoy the comfortable open plan studio, with access to the welcoming pool and the calm courtyard oasis. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed for lovely breakfasts and we always feel very much at home here. The location is so convenient for shops, airport, motorway and mountain - what more could anyone ask for! Michelle is a warm and gracious hostess and we look forward to our next stay here.

Robin's Nest is a home away from home. We return every year and thoroughly enjoy our stay here. One could not wish for better hosts than Michelle and Stephen. Nothing is ever too much for them to help with. Robin's Nest is within walking distance of good coffee shops. Cavendish Mall and the Newlands Cricket and Rugby Stadiums are a brisk walk (for those that are fit) or a short car journey away.
