I booked a few rooms for my family to spend the weekend at this amazing guesthouse as it was located close the place I was getting married at. I spoke to the owner before hand and he had absolutely no problem with us using his place for pictures and letting our service providers into the property for our special day. Mark was so so attentive with all the small details, and the property is absolutely spectacular. He provides so much privacy and you really feel like a special guest. The honesty bar puts the cherry on top for me, it shows me that Mark still believes in the good in people, which is rare. The property has great amenities, really great amenities, but the experience provides by the host is what made our stay memorable. I can’t wait to be back!

What a fantastic guesthouse with a perfect host Mark, in attendance. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he has a very welcoming demeanour. Our tastefully furnished room was just perfect with everything we needed for an overnight stay, just wish we could have stayed longer. The surrounding gardens are one of the best we have seen and obviously well cared for. Many thanks Mark, kind regards Mike & Fran Johnson

My stay at Bay View was delightful. I loved the attention to detail in the amenities, decoration, and service. Mark was a great host who went above and beyond to meet our needs. Although it's a ways outside of downtown Cape Town, the views are stunning and the setting was peaceful and restful. I would recommend it as an alternative to the hustle and bustle of the city.

This is the fourth time we have stayed at Bay View - and we will stay there again and again!!! The hosts are friendly and caring. The rooms are comfortable and luxurious! and it is all VERY affordable! With the new lounge area in the front it is perfect to gather there each night after a day outside exploring Cape Town area and enjoy a cold beverage and a good laugh! We can fully recommend this venue if you want to be comfortable and not share your vacation with hundred others!!! It's perfect for couples and families! The ONLY negative - we wished we stayed longer!!!! Herman & Graham (United Kingdom)

Fantastic, friendly and comfortable stay at Bay View in Somerset West. We were looking for accommodation where we could stay regularly as our son is in boarding in Somerset West. The location, view, affordability and finishes offered us the ideal home away from home to be with our son on weekends.

Bay View was a lovely find when we were looking for accommodation in Somerset West. Situated on a hill in the Heldervue the accommodation not just offers a stunning view over the bay but offers comfortable rooms with a lot of extras that made the stay enjoyable and memorable. Bay View have lovely finishes and offers a home away from home feeling. We stayed in the spacious family room that offered my son a separate bedroom from a main bedroom. Mark's friendly welcoming reception will guarantee that we will be back.

I stayed at Bay View Somerset West for four nights and it was absolutely wonderful. I really feel I don't want to tell everyone how perfect it was for fear of them not having availability when I need it! The room was extremely clean and the bed exceptionally comfortable, with crisp white linen. The breakfast basket was thoughtfully put together. I really liked the lounge area as well, and I felt at home sitting there. They also offer safe and secure parking. Mark is a delightful (and funny) host and I will make a point of returning whenever I need to travel to Somerset West again.
