We booked here as wew liked the idea of the'Tree House',which wasnt really such but part of a structure at the back of the garden albeit that the view was good and the accomodation OK although one of the less comfortable beds we found in SA. What made our brief stay pleasurable was the fammily atmosphere and the welcoming atmosphere...

Dear John, dear Chris, many thanks for your testimony and kind words. Really sorry you did not find the mattresses too comfortable, we usually get good comments on it and the products are well known. But good to get some criticism too. That keeps you alert and is so important in any industry. Be happy you did not stay in...

We had a lovely stay with Chris and Nicola. They were accommodating throughout, generous with their time and advice and always around to help. The quality of accommodation is in line with the price, so we were very happy. Lovely pool too. A very enjoyable stay.

This was the first stop on our 17 day holiday in South Africa, and what a great start. As we were flying overnight, we contacted Chris prior to our arrival for recommendations on somewhere local to have breakfast. Chris told us not to worry as he would rustle something up for us when we arrived. The flight was delayed and...

Oh my dears ! Such great words and I can feel how easily they flew off your pen - or rather with light fingers into the keyboard. Many, many thanks, also for your reviews on the two restaurants, it's so greatly appreciated. Trust you still had some great experiences while traveling around. Wish to have you all back one day...

I have never written a review before, but this stay was just too lovely to not do it! Christoph and Niki run their sweet Guesthouse with all their heart. The house is located in perfect walking distance from the Cape Town center and it is only a short (6-7 minutes) cap ride from the waterfront. After having been in the...

We stayed at Lezard Blue end December 2011 (on New Year!) and we can only be positive about our stay. Lezard is like a second home, but really a second home. You never get the feeling you're somewhere else. Nikki and Chris are just fabulous. So friendly, always up for a joke, a talk, a drink! It would be a...

If you want an impersonal luxury hotel, this is not for you. If you want to feel like you are coming home after a long day of exploration, this is your place. There is usually some nice African or jazz music playing in the background, local artwork, and if it is cool outside maybe a fire in the fireplace. There...

Absolutely fantastic, in fact this is without doubt the best guest house my wife and I have ever stayed in.

I always stay here when I come to cape town, and never regretted :-). The owners make you feel like being part of the family. They are always there to help, ask, organise our just chat.
