Our stay was wonderful. Staff friendly, our rooms clean and we felt like it was home away from home. Would definitely be back.

A super place to stay. We stayed 7 nights and found the location excellent, the welcome warm and the facilities very good indeed. We would certainly stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending to others!

A stunning guest house overlooking a beautiful beach with amazing views over False Bay towards the Hottentot Hollands mountain range. Dominique and her team made our special occasion and stay very memorable. From the relaxing spa treatment in the afternoon to the excellent breakfast the following day, we will be returning many more times in the future! Thank you for creating such a wonderful setting and for your fabulous service. Jason & Mandy

Excellent service, comfortable room with wonderful sea-views. Watched penguins,dolphinus play around in the surf. But the highlight of our stay most defintely was the inhouse Spa called Shaya-Moya. Everyday we treated ourselfs to a treatment, from Facials to massage's to our very favourite Treatment Called the MAMMA AFRICA. We left feeling like brand new people ready for our long journey back home. We will be back

We stayed there during the December holidays for one week. What a Gem. The staff are incrediable, they are so attentive and have a great spirit about working. The room we stayed in has panoramic views of the sea, we saw all the birdlife, animal life and sea life there was to see. And swan on Fishermans beach almost every morning. it was a holiday/rest I will never forget. Thank you Loren and her team. For making our holiday so relaxing and comfortable. I would recommend this guesthouse before I would recommend a five star hotel. The prices are excellent and value for money. See you next December

Very comfortable, very elegant. The staff are so friendly, attentive and helpful. Thank you to Lauren and Joe for making our stay so special. The views are amazing, we watched a Cape Otter and her babies each night from our balcony and saw many whales. The breakfast was excellent, each day we took photos as the presentation was amazing. I would recommend this guesthouse. Mr Mrs Vleefkind UK

What a gorgeous guest house. It is beautifully decorated, the view is magnificent! The service is outstanding, the manager Lauren and her staff Joe, Jackson and Jimmy all have smiles, warmth and are helpful at all times. We felt like it was our home from home. After staying in SA for 3 weeks this guest house was our best stay. Loved every day. It should be 5 star! We had a intimate dinner on our 2nd night, a three course dinner which was cooked by the manager. The best lamb shanks!! Thank you for having us! We will return and most importantly we will be sending all our friends!
