I was always intrigued by this “tiny” yellowish building between all the huge flats in Mouillepoint but boy oh boy - there is nothing tiny about this one!! Paul and Tania are the best hosts we have ever been to (without any doubt), the view is spectacular, the rooms spotless, the vibe when you walk in makes that you want to pack up your house and relocate! This was our second time there and most definately not the last time!!

An unexpected visit to our daughter in Cape Town set in motion a most serendipitious and hugely enjoyable stay at an unsung and beautifully curated and located hostelry masterfully run by attentive yet unobstrusive hosts Paul and Tanya-A convenient stones throw from the Silo gym and pool and a gentle stroll to the world class and beautifully landscaped Mouille Point and Sea Point boulevard-Breakfasts were tastefully presented and jaw droppings views were enjoyed from our bedroom verandah- What a fabulous surprise- we loved our stay and heartily recommend this gem to any fastidious traveller-

From booking, to arriving and right throughout the stay the experience was one of absolute ease and professionalism. The room was perfectly clean, beautifully decorated and super comfortable! The guesthouse is situated perfectly across the road from the promenade and looks onto the ocean. The V&A Waterfront is a 20 min walk and Seapoint is a short bus ride away. Who could wish for more!
