We stayed here for just one night at the end of our South African trip. A beautiful end to an amazing trip. Another night would have been even better. Bernalene was so friendly and chatty, we felt really welcomed into her home. Very personal. Views are spectacular and it was amazing to wake up to the sound of the sea. Definitely take time to look round the garden and chapel too. A special place.

A home and experience that follows the architecture of the soul – magical spaces both inside and out. An environment beautifully integrated into its surroundings, with warm and earthy spaces inside for contemplation and relaxation. Delicious food, with overwhelming attention to detail, and everything straight from the heart. Bernalene is a radiant person and exceptional host.

Yes the staff was super friendly and helpful and kind, yes the breakfast was super great and the place was spotlessly clean and I can not describe the ocean view in words..... but there is something beyond those criteria about Valparaiso guesthouse. What makes it especial is the whole experience. Bernalele, the owner, is an artist and Valparaiso is an installation art. From the moment you turn into the red dusty road she takes you into a Latin American magic realism novel plot. Every room has a story, and every detail is well taught and presented. Everything is connected to eachother as if even the location, the view of the ocean and the beach are also part of the installation art you are experiencing. Even the way Bernalene personally presents and serves the breakfast everyday. I strongly recommend this place not only as a very good place to stay, but also as a unique experience which doesn't seem to happen every day.
