The guesthouse is located perfectly with great sightseeing, restaurants and coffee cafes close by. The hosts are amazing people: when I got sick the last day they have given us the opportunity to stay in the room the rest of the day since we had a flight late at night. Good hospitality and also the breakfast was tasteful, fresh and proper. Can highly recommend!

We spent 4 nights at Bayflowers and were fully satisfied by the service. The rooms are spacious and comfortable - we even had our own terrasse -, the breakfast prepared by Jeanne are amazing : all fresh and homemade products! The hosts are extremly friendly and gave us many advices. Eventhough we're in the centre of Cape Town, it is very quiet and peaceful, and the view is gorgeous. Thanks a lot Mickael and Jeanne! We loved our stay with you!

Apart from the fact that the guest house is superbly located, extremely comfortable and well appointed, what made our stay extra special was the fact the the owner/managers Jeanne and Michael went out of their way to ensure our every need was catered for. Nothing was to much trouble for them. This is what makes Bayflowers so special and highly recommended.

Wow I cannot say enough about this place and the hosts. Incredibly hospitable and the rooms were very comfortable. Highlight of the trip may have been those complimentary breakfasts though. Incredible. We will be back!
