Wow!
I travel to Cape Town quite a bit throughout the year so am always a little nervous when trying out new places. Kumbaya House gave me no headaches, only the willingness to spend more time in Cape Town.

It is a little out of the way in terms of main city life so I would recommend this venue for those who have time to spare in the mornings and who are seeing The Mother City at their leisure.

You are literally waited on hand and foot by incredibly friendly and attentive staff and are made to feel like part of the family. And when privacy is required, it is respected.

Highly recommended for at least a few nights. A great way to worry less about accommodation and focus more on enjoying the best Cape Town has to offer.

This place was a great find! set up the hill so provides a great view - shame about the recent tall building which blocks part of the view of Table mountain! Rosemary is a real character.... she is a stong woman and very welcoming... nothing is too much trouble!
Great breakfast and dinner, if ordered in advance, is absolutely super! home made - even for 1 person! be aware that you must pay for all in advance, and pre oder all, including what you want for breakfast. Dinner can be preordered from a menu, but if you just ask for fish or chicken for example, Rosemary will make a wonderful dish.
I did question the upfront payment for all as, for me, it was a little strange....BUT as she has had some very unscrupulous guests who have stayed for a few nights and then left very early without paying and they are a small operation.....I do understand. So be aware of this.
There was a group of Angolan government people there when I stayed, who gave Rosemary and her team a tough time, but all coped admirably. Kept their cool, which is more than I would have done with so e of their antics including not paying.....They did eventually but Rosemary had to fight for it!! unvelievable!
Overall a great location, great views and great hospitality.

The owner of this place is so racist and she's black worst of all. First she was surprised that we are black because the person who booked for us does not have your known african surnames. then she accused one of our friends of stealing keys "imagine someone from JHB stealing keys from a CT guest house". she even called the police on us and when they arrived we gave them the keys because our friend had left them with us as he had other commitments in JHB. Worst of all our friend had to pay R3500 for keys he didn't take, Rosemary even googled our friend and found out he was famous and called his employers to claim he stole keys. we would not recommend this place to anyone, their attitude and service is disgusting to say the least.

KH West Beach believes that the Guests in question belonged to a famous South African Soccer Team, and some of them chose to break every house-rule, caused total chaos that disturbed the rest of the Guests, ordered tremendous amounts of alcohol and disappeared from the premises prior to check-out date and KH had no idea how to deal with this current and new uncalled for situation, and if it was not for another South African Guest who stayed at KH at the same time as the Soccer individuals and who found the Owner and Staff alike terrified and wanted to know what happened and after getting the explanation about the current and most unpleasant events, the man told the Owner not to worry, he happened to know the Soccer Player´s Managing Director personally and he contacted him directly that same evening. The next morningKH was bombarded with endless phone calls from the Soccer Team Managing Director and his assistants alike asking the Owner of KH to give them time to do "Damage Control" before she went to the Media about this issue. Damage Control was done in the amount of R3500:00 for the unpaid beverage bill/invoice, the lost Gate Remote Control, the safe key, room-key, glass-door keys, Main Entrance Door Key and the Owner never exposed this event to the Media in South Africa. Kumbaya House West Beach has had several South African TV-Personalities, Journalist and so on, who behaved normally and decently. When people misbehave, break every written house-rule, disrespect the establishment and it´s staff for no reason at all, then there are consequences to face.

When we arrived we were already welcomed with a free welcome drink, very much appreciated after a long flight. The guest house is a really beautiful place with many, many very nice and lovingly selected details everywhere (even after 9 days I was able to spot even more things!). But all arranged in a very harmonic and well balanced way that makes you feel home immediately. We had a really nice and clean suite with a balcony and a nice view above Bloubergstrand, which is SA kite surfer paradise :-)
The breakfast we booked was almost to much sometimes and due to the exceptional hospitality of our host, different every single day!
Saving the best for last: if you consider yourself to be a "not normal" person (since normal is boring), this is the place to be in Cape Town and Rosemarie is the person to get to know! Fabulous host, warm hearted and open minded person. Rosemarie alone made the Cape Town trip more than worthwhile :-)
Definitely something (and someone) you should check out!

Mr. Tim

we were received as kings by owners and staff. We got a free welcome drink, a big glass of wine and a beer we took which was much appreciated. This incredibly beautiful hotel has the owner Rosemarie furnishings herself and there is a great feeling for all the details. Each room had its own style and everything was perfectly combined to make you feel comfortable and feel like home.

We stayed in the main suite which was incredibly romantic and beautiful, with a large bed separate large bathroom with jaccuzi and 2st sinks.

The breakfast was good and home cooked which made it feel fresh and healthy.

The owner helped us with everything we needed and made sure everything was organized so we would have a perfect experience! and that was exactly what we got. We could never believe we would find such a hotel for that price.

If you are planning to go to Cape Town then stay at this wonderful hotel! You will not be disappointed and the owner will ensure that your stay is as wonderful as ours was.

And if you are Swedish, bring a few extra snuff to the owner, she will appreciate it a lot!

If you like Maria Montazami you will love this Hotel and everything with it.

The rooms are spacious and clean. The service is five star. It is a very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Very good accomodation and a very friendly owner. We enjoyed our stay at Kumbaya and will certainly return! The owner arranged that we could park our car in her garage and this was much appreciated.
