We loved our stay at Moonglow. The view from our room was wonderful and was even better enjoyed from our balcony. It was nice having a french press and kettle waiting when I awoke, and the breakfast was excellent. Loved the soap, lotion, and room spray. Gillian was very friendly, kind, and accommodating. The wifi was too far from our room, so we couldn't use it. Not a vacation deal breaker, but keep this in mind if you are planning to do any work during your stay.

We had a great stay, the breakfast was lovely and Gillian has been a wonderful host. Our room had a great view and the high bed made seeing the ocean easy whilst relaxing. The guest house is well situated, with enough parking space.

Woow.... what a lovely beautiful place. A home away from home and more. Moonglow takes the cup to all accommodation products including big name establishments we stayed during 2 weeks trip. The View, the Cleanliness, Breakfast superb. Gillian and and Glen were so warm, welcoming and soo helpful with directions & tips around Cape Town.. BEST SERVICE EVER! My best moments were during breakfast, everything was perfect from garnish, quality products used and mouth-watering breakfast 😋👌 I can recommend Moonglow to anyone who wants best service and beautiful accommodation at a reasonable price. Thank you soo much for being great hosts .
