Sonnekus Guest House is a highly recommended St James Bed & Breakfast providing accommodation in 5 guest rooms for tourists visiting the False Bay region.

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.

Accommodation

"Murex" offers a view of the ocean and the garden, while at the same time being wheelchair friendly. It also has a fireplace, which can be used in winter.

"Cowrie" is very large and spacious, has its own fireplace and lounge area. For the early risers the sun rise from this room is spectacular, as is the view of False Bay.

"Urchin" offers the most spectacular view of False Bay, from Gordon's Bay in the East right across to Simon's Bay in the West.

"Whelk" gives you a good view of False Bay. It has a fireplace for those chilly winter nights.

"Conch" is a very quiet room in the centre of the house. An open plan bathroom makes this an intimate hide-away.

Bathrooms: Some bathrooms have a separate bath and shower, while others have a shower over a luxurious corner bath.

Each room/suite has an overhead fan, heater, tea/coffee tray, telephone and television for your convenience.
