Claudia and Mark are the friendliest hosts we have ever met. The amount of personal attention they give to their guests makes you feel at home very easily at this wonderful guest house. It was our second stay and we enjoyed every minute of it.

About
Description
Southern Cross Guesthouse is situated in a quiet private residential area on the slops of Somerset West with stunning views of False Bay, mountain ranges and the Atlantic Ocean. Only 30 min. drive from Cape town, More close to sandy beaches and in the heart of the Winelands is the guesthouse a perfect gate to all the interesting points of the Western Cape. The Southern Cross offers its guests a choice of 4 Star sea- and garden-view rooms as well as suites, all individually decorated and offering a very modern European standard in their equipment. The surrounding park-like garden is lush and manicured at the same time. Either here or on different sundecks guests can find their individual place for relaxation. A beautiful so called boma offers stunning views to Cape-Point and the possibility of enjoying a bonfire or braai. Southern Cross Guesthouse is the perfect little hide-away out of the city`s buzz but having all that business- or leisure-travelers would need to find in close proximity. Less
