Arnold and Annalise were very welcoming to their home and guest house. They both, clearly, have a natural gift for making people feel welcomed and at ease. The room which was in the eaves of the house and finished in thatch on the outside was cool and beautifully appointed with all the conveniences one could wish for. It lead onto a communal sundeck with seating and sun-loungers. A bracing walk along the beach and it's time for dinner. If you can, please stay on a evening when Arnold is cooking as this is an experience and the quality of produce and how it was presented were both first rate. BYOB allows you to use some of that nice wine you've bought and fail;ing that Arnold is passionate about some of the Swartland producers and may be able to help. Breakfast was 4 courses and the first time I've had tonka bean ice cream.... All in all, a lovely stay.

Room tip: Upstairs offers access to a nice roof terrace...

Returned once again to stay with Arnold and Annalise. Their standards seem to get better. The rooms are traditional yet quirky and modern, beds supremely comfortable, bathrooms very modern and well equipped. It is a wonderful guest house, in a great location, with terrific hosts. Try and book when Arnold is cooking dinner. The "long table", where everyone sits together, is always great fun and all nationalities mix well together and exchange views. Lots of wine drunk when we stayed and a huge range of subjects covered! In the background is Arnold and Annalise, providing sublime food and making sure guests are well looked after. Great evening. The breakfasts are excellent too and light years away from the usual bill of fayre. My only complaint is that I don't get there often enough - its very popular so book well ahead.

Room tip: All the rooms are good, four on first floor, other on ground floor.

We had the large room at the front which was perfect and very comfortable.
Breakfast is an experience not to be missed and if you can have an evening meal - DO.
Arnold is a superb chef and he and Annelize make every meal a special occasion.
My friends had stayed there in 2013 and highly recommended it and I am so glad they did.

Room tip: Room called Ooh la La!

The guesthouse is beautifully decorated with lots of art. Our room had a king size bed and was also beautifully decorated, serviced every day. It is very peaceful and perfect for a good night sleep. We could not have diner at the guesthouse since they just returned home from a well deserved holiday the same day. This means we have to go back another time because Arnold is an amazing chef! We enjoyed his 3 course breakfast sitting at a large table with the other guests. I went for a lovely walk at the beach before breakfast. One night is not enough to relax though!

Words failed us! Everything and more! Well deserved excellent ratings. The most wonderful hosts and private dining by Arnold is a MUST, probably the best meal we've ever had, the preparation and casual chat was all part of the experience. A real pleasure and many thanks, definitely returning. Many many thanks Miles & Jan x
