Capeblue Manor House is situated in Lakeside, a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. Tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac at the foot of the imposing Steenberg Mountain 2kms from Muizenberg beach the Manor House , built in 1927, has recently been restored to its original elegance. All eight double rooms with shower and bath en-suite have been stylishly redecorated with luxury and comfort in mind.Only 20 minutes from the centre of Cape Town, Capeblue Manor House is the perfect base from which the traveler can explore the Mother City, the V&A Waterfront or ride the cable car to the top of the majestic Table Mountain. The Winelands are a stone's throw away and hosts Michelle and Allen are always on hand with advice and recommendations for the discerning visitor. Muizenberg Beach is 2km from the Manor and offers much for the visitor to do. A day on the spectacular beach and a train ride to Simon's Town along the spectacular coastline, stopping off at Kalk Bay or Fish Hoek to wander through the charming antique shops are experiences not to be missed. For the travelling business person, Capeblue Manor House promises a peaceful retreat at the end of a busy day where one can relax on the terrace by the pool or in the well-appointed guest's lounge and library area. Hosts Michelle and Allen pride themselves on their personal service and aim to ensure your stay is one to remember.

Comfortable, charming stay. Great breakfasts, stylish decor and large and comfortable rooms. Very happy. Location is ideal for accessing both the peninsula areas and the southern suburbs of Cape Town and the hosts were attentive and relaxed.

A lovely, peaceful and pleasant place. Very homely. The rooms and bathrooms are very spacious so it felt like a home away from home. Our hosts were fabulous and breakfast was awesome. The gardens are beautiful and very private.

A warm welcome from the hosts, healthy breakfasts, very comfortable accommodations and a lovely garden make this B&B a wonderful place to rest and relax. It is very close to Muizenberg and has convenient access to the main motor way into the city of Cape Town and all tourist sites. Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay and highly recommend this charming place.

We enjoyed staying at Cape Blue Manor and will definitely visit again. The guesthouse is situated in a very quiet and peaceful area. Our room was big and comfortable. Michelle is a very friendly host and made us feel welcome. The breakfast was top class, and we enjoyed our chats with the chef.

I found Capable Manor when I came to the area to visit a friend. What a delight! My room was spacious and beautiful, the grounds and pool lovely, the breakfast delicious (adapted for my vegetarian preference) and the owner/host so gracious and welcoming. The neighborhood is quiet with easy access to town, the beach and mountain hiking. I would absolutely recommend!

Beautiful and peaceful manor house, tastefully decorated. Large comfortable room and bathroom with lovely bath products and fresh, fluffy towels. Michelle was very attentive and accommodating of all our needs and went the extra mile for us. Nothing was too much for her. Breakfast was delicious. The pool area was pretty and relaxing. Plenty off street parking in the property. Easy walk down to the Vlei. We had a wonderful stay.

We had an unbelievable stay at Capeblue while attending a wedding in Muizenberg.

Michelle was incredibly welcoming and accommodating and when we could not get an Uber to the wedding she drove us there herself.

We loved relaxing by the pool after breakfast and had a great overall stay.

A nice and secure location close to everything Cape Town and it’s surroundings has to offer! Michelle is a kind and thoughtful host that makes the best fruit salad for breakfast. When we requested separate duvets she was quick to sort that out. The room was spacious and calm with a large en suite bathroom with comfy towels.
