We will definitely be back to this beautiful tranquil 4 star guest accommodation were we received the most warmest welcome by Celeste, who made us feel right ar home. A place to switch off and recharge was definitely what we needed. Everything we needed was provided without any effort. Bed was most comfortable, the whole place was very stylishly decorated and very clean. Well done you guys, you impressed !!!

I went to Cape Town for a week - and stayed over in Dai Heka Boutique. I was pleasantly surprised with the room that was allocated to me.

The Guest house beautifully furnished and was friendly greeted on arrival. Both the owner and all the staff is most accommodating and extremely friendly.

Price is very competitive taking into account the classy place you stay in.

Rooms were cleaned every single day. Lovely tables outside to sit in the sun. I even had breakfast outside on the second day of my stay.

I recommend Dai Heka without any reservation whatsoever.

Dai Heka is a 4* guesthouse about 1 km from the main Strand beach. Rooms are comfortable, clean and tastefully furnished, each differently decorated - attention to the finest detail is obvious and makes all the difference. A choice can be made between "self-catering" and "bed and breakfast" rooms. Family rooms are also available. Breakfast is really good, and lunch and dinner are offered on request.The "first-lady", Theresa, is a ray of sunshine and one of the most hospitable and accommodating people I have met. She is available 24/7 and nothing is too much trouble. Guests are welcomed like old friends and "real" coffee is always "on tap". If required, airport transfers can be arranged, and cars and motorcycles can be rented at the guesthouse. Lock-up parking and wifi internet access are available.

Had a very comfortable and peaceful stay at Dai Heka Guest House (B&B or self catering.) The manager and breakfast chef gives personal attendance to guests. Safe parking for vehicles. Enquire from the manager if you want to rent a branded vehicle or scooter motorbike that is owned by Dai Heka. Does not have a sea view, but within a few kilometres in different directions to the beach and/or shopping mall.

This was not the first time that we used Dai Heka. In spite of the yeoman efforts of Maggie there was an absence of a 'host'. We did not at any time meet the owner /manager!! The homely atmosphere previously experienced was absent. There were no house rules available, no telephone no,s in case of emergency, and no apparent presence of anyone other than guests overnight. Small items of detail such as no soap or shower gel in the bath room, no soap holder in the shower are examples of poor concern for guests. Notwithstanding this the room was comfortable and clean but very poorly lit and it was necessary to use lighting at all time because of the dark.
The stay did not meet expectations and overseas friends who on our recommendation might well have made use of the facility will be advised against using Dai Heka.

We were made to feel very welcome and had a comfortable stay with nice breakfasts. Dai Heka is an ideal guesthouse for groups of friends to stay as it has good communal areas. It was a shame that not all rooms had showers, especially with the current water shortage in Cape Town. The rooms had nice soft furnishings, but were a little dark. Perhaps both issues will be addressed as the new owners put their stamp on the guest house.

Felt like a mini holiday & great service. The guesthouse was very neat and their attention to detail is outstanding, useful as a business stay and I'm sure it fits in the holiday category too. The owners are hands on in the day to day management and that makes all the difference!
