Enchanted Guest house is located in the heart of Bantry Bay where sea, mountain and city are exquisitely blended. We are a minute walk away from Saunders Rock Beach on the Atlantic Sea Board of Cape Town and we also have Lions head protecting us from the South Easter when it blows. We are very close to Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches, the V & A Waterfront, the City Centre and the CTICC. Everything you need like shops, supermarket, bank, post office and restaurants are in walking distance. We are conveniently situated to explore the sights and sounds of Cape Town. This Victorian home has a calm and peaceful atmosphere "home away from home feeling", with a modern approach to hospitality and friendly staff. We have 8 elegantly furnished bedrooms which are spacious and most with a private patio or balcony with captivating sea or mountain views. Our Guesthouse and the outside area with plunge pool and braai facilities are the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. All our rooms are fully equipped with en-suite shower, air-conditioning unit, comfortable beds, modern flat screen TV's, hairdryers, coffee/tea station, a mini fridge and a safe. We provide our guests with pool/beach towels on request as well as airport transfers and guided tours. As complimentary every guest has free wireless Internet Access. Our breakfast buffet is served from 8:00 - 10:00am and on the weekend until 11:00am. We serve a variety of cheeses, fresh fruits, cereals, yogurts, spreads, fresh juices and a scrumptious warm breakfast which includes eggs (scrambled, fried, poached or boiled, Macon, Vienna's and mushrooms). You should try our "Enchanted Omelets" for which our guests love us... Every day we add something different to the menu, from flapjacks to pan cakes and pastries. Our Check in time is from 14:00 - 18:00 Previous arranged late check in's will be a charge of R150.00 Our Check out time is before 11:00 Like us on Facebook: EnchantedGuestHouse

Normally when my wife and I travel abroad we look for a hotel with all facilities available. This time we wanted to look at all options and considered a guest house stay. Having looked at positive reviews on Trip Advisor about the Enchanted Guest House we decided to try out this property, an important decision as we were due to stay for nine nights. We spoke and booked directly with the owner Ridwaan stressing the need for a sea view and a good quality room. We were not disappointed. Room 8 had a sea view albeit between two adjacent buildings flanking the guest house, was very roomy with a comfortable shower and toilet area. There was a large balcony from the room with table and chairs and direct staircase access to the ground floor pool area, with the latter being a bit small and not heated. There were other rooms available but these appeared slightly smaller and with garden or pool views. Not full which probably helped, but the service from all staff was excellent, and a more than adequate breakfast provision. For other meals Sea Point is a maximum ten minute walk away with all its restaurants. For steaks a definite is "Brads Place". Tea at the Mount Nelson Hotel is also an experience not to be missed if possible. We were both very comfortable at this location and would happily endorse to other travelers. The place is not far nor hidden if you bother to check out the location map first, in fact it can be accessed direct from the promenade on one side or main road on the other, with the red hop on hop off buses being both close by and a good way to get around. Ridwaan also offers tours of the various sights and this can be negotiated with him on arrival, he also picked us up from the train station and took us to the airport.
