Tranquility, a Cape cod-style mountain retreat filled with light and laughter affords soaring views over False Bay and surrounding mountains. Whether you awake to extraordinary sunrises, eat delicious food, linger by the fireside, walk to the beach or relax in the Jacuzzi, Tranquility has it all... Oh, we forgot to mention superb breakfasts, fresh flowers, fine linen, free Wireless internet access and warm South African hospitality. Tranquility is situated just 40 km's south of Cape Town and nestles between two mountains and two oceans along the False Bay coast. Surrounded by beautiful beaches and nature reserves, Tranquility is centrally disposed to Cape Town's tourist attractions and the quaint villages of Muizenberg, Kalk Bay, Simonstown, Scarborough, Kommetjie, Noordhoek and Hout Bay as well as the Constantia vineyards and Cape Point. Come away and smell the salt in the air, feel the sand between your toes and breathe in the fresh mountain air ... simply perfection!

My husband and I stayed here for the last night of our South Africa honeymoon and it was wonderful! Jan and Bonnie are great people, Tranquility is located on top a hill overlooking Cape Town. Breath-taking views from the Romantic room, with delicious seafood restaurants nearby. Would come back!!!

Jan and Bonnie are the most amazing hosts. We were treated like kings. The room was outstanding with the most amazing view. Their freshly baked muffins and breakfasts were very delicious and we enjoyed their friendly chats around the breakfast table every morning. Very nice venue and hosts and highly recommended.

My new husband and I spent a couple days of our honeymoon here. The view from our room was beautiful. We had a made to order breakfast every morning. We felt at home and had complete tranquility. The location of this house is perfect, as it allows you to have a slow day on the coast or a busy day in Cape Town if you choose. Our hosts made the most delicious homemade breakfast, helped us plan our itinerary for the day, and even booked us for dinner reservations at an amazing local fine-dinning restaurant. It was a joy to get to know them. Their kindness and warm hospitality was so appreciated!

We had the lovely opportunity to stay at the Tranquility guest house in Franschhoek South Africa. We were warmly met with muffins by John and Bonnie, our hosts. Our room was lovely with an outstanding view. We got an excellent recommendation for dinner and the next morning woke to a delicious breakfast and interesting conversation.

Thanks very much for taking time to write such a lovely review. Please may I ask you to make a small correction? You traveled from Tranquility onto Franshoek but Tranquility Guest House is in Fish Hoek. These names are easily confused so we would like travellers who read your review not to go to the wrong place to find Tranquility Guest House. Thank you kindly, Jan

We had a wonderful stay at Tranquility Guest House in Fish Hoek. The view from the room was spectacular, the breakfast scrumptious and more than ample. But most of all, the warmth of the welcome, the hospitality and the conversation with Jan and Bonnie was the hit of our stay. We would highly recommend it and look forward to returning someday!

We stayed in the Rose room. Well cared for by Jan and Bonny. We extended our stay a few extra days. Tranquility lived up to it's name. Definitely a place of peace. We will try to stay here again on our next visit to Cape Town.

For a second year my wife & I spent 2 weeks at Tranquility Guest house and, once again, we had the most wonderful experience.
We chose the Rose Room which affords superb comfort and stunning views over the sea and mountains beyond. This room with its own en suite bathroom even has its own kitchenette, which is great for those evenings when we didn't feel like eating out.
Jan & Bonny provided a delicious breakfast with a mouthwatering selection of cereals, fruits, yoghurts and pastries, not to mention an excellent cooked breakfast to order.
Rather than being visitors in a guest house, we were really made to feel as though we were part of the family.
Their wonderful staff ensured that everywhere was kept spotlessly clean, even providing a same day laundry service. As soon as we arrived, they carried our heavy cases up to our room, and on the day of departure, it was packed back into our car.
Nowhere in the world have we experienced such a quality of service as shown by Jan & Bonny at Tranquility. Our stay was a total joy.

My 3night stay at the guest-house was nothing short of tranquillity; the sea and mountain views from the Loft Room are phenomenal.Their beautifully designed house, though huge, it offers a homey and welcoming feeling. Jan and Bonnie are amazing hosts that are flexible to clients needs with reason, they served delicious breakfast in the mornings with an a high level of hospitality. The highlight of my stay is the Birthday cake that Bonnie generously baked for me, i will forever cherish this wonderful gesture. I would definitely recommend Tranquility Guesthouse to anyone, it truly does live up to it's name.

Just a perfect relaxed and very quite guesthouse with a lovely view over Fish Hoek. Good breakfast and very, very friendly hosts. Thanks for the beer, letting me borrow your MTB, late arrival and late departure... I´ll be back soon :-)

During my last business trip to south africa Í stayed the Weekend in Fish Hoek. I never had such an amizing guest house. The view from the mountain to the coast and the ocean was beautiful. The room were lovely decorated and 100% clean. I never had such a great hospitality. It was like staying at my own family. Finally the breakfast delicious with a huge variety of food. I travel a lot worldwide and must go into expensive hotels to find something similar. Many thank's for everything.
