After 10 years of service in picturesque Cape Town, Sweet Orange is under new management in 2022. With a clear vision, the newly-renovated Sweet Orange re-opened in September 2022 to guests from around the world. At Sweet Orange we strive to give guests a boutique and curated, local living stay in Cape Town. While walking along the wooden floors of this house, you can’t help but wonder about those who have walked before you in the last 100+ years. By honouring the Victorian heritage of the house, and mixing it up with modern design, Sweet Orange will give you a true and unique Mother City experience. Nestled in the beachy neighbourhood of Sea Point, Sweet Orange is a stone's throw away from the beach, promenade, popular restaurants and markets, bars and shops.

We had a great stay here at Sweet Orange. A great location at Sea Point with the beach and good cafes and restaurants nearby. The room was comfortable with a lovely bed and fantastic shower. Pool was great and staff were lovely and helpful and let us store our bags. Breakfast was super tasty here too with lots of options and fresh fruit.

Had a great stay at Sweet Orange. Pomelo was spacious, clean and ideal for our purpose. Excellent breakfasts, Zack was pleasant and accommodating and, given the opportunity, I would stay there again. The cottage is ideally situated, a stones throw from supermarkets and restaurants and I had a lovely view of both Table Mountain and Signal Hill from my bedroom window. The fans provided were essential for cooling the rooms at night although they were a bit noisy.

We stayed here for our first few nights in Cape Town between December 24th and December 27th. The stay was wonderful from start to end and the small size of the guest house made it possible to meet other guests. The location in Seapoint is close to local restaurants and within easy Uber distance to other sights in Cape Town. The room on the upper floor was very spacious and very nicely decorated. The hosts were very friendly and always helpful, organized airport transfer for us and prepared an excellent breakfast. The Sweet Orange deserves highest recommendation!

This is a lovely little guest house. We took the self-catering Airbnb option, Pamelo, which is a two-bedroom heritage style home with wooden floors and high ceilings. It is well run and the hosts are very hospitable and considerate. They are also very accommodating as we were able to join breakfast as needed, hand in laundry and brought our German Shepherd puppy! The location is good as it’s near good eateries, the V&A Waterfront and the stadium. Thoroughly recommended.

The best guesthouse I've ever stayed in. The staff is so attentive and friendly, always ready to help. The level of attention to detail at Sweet Orange is impeccable from everything in the room to the board of things to do around the area, definitely a welcomed plus since we did not have an itenary. Not to mention the breakfast - absolutely amazing and great options. It kind of feels like you're at home. It's also at a great spot, close to the beach and shopping centre's.

Tucked away in Bellevue Rd, Sea Point is this gem. 🍊 A beautiful Victorian Heritage building that’s retained its charm with a bit of eclectic flair. 🍊 ✔️Rooms are spacious, yet cozy. ✔️There’s a well stocked mini bar and a super variety of snacks available to purchase. (Got to love a place who has jelly tots as an option!!!!) ✔️Plush linen, towels and bathroom vanities make all the difference ✔️Fast wifi (even in loadshedding) ✔️Wonderful courtyard, pool and chill area ✔️Tea and coffee facilities available in the kitchen 24/7 ✔️Most DELICIOUS brekkie included in your stay ✔️Not even 10 min walk to the beach and promenade

This guesthouse, in a great location in Seapoint, is a wonderful stay. The bed in the room is fantastic, large and cozy. The breakfast offered in the morning was delicious, and the staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly.

Our stay was perfect, the plane arrived late but the staff was waiting for us and was really kind and friendly. We sleep really good and the place feels safe. Breakfast was amazing, big and tasty. We'll be back in our next visit to Cape Town.

My stay at Sweet Orange was super great, the room was good and so was the bed. The breakfast was amazing. The host Zack really made us feel at home away from home. I am definitely booking with them again on my next Cape Town trip.
