This guest house is a gem in the heart of Green Point, Cape Town. It's unique in character, being a beautiful Victorian farmhouse yet super chic and modern inside. Daniel the owner, has "an eye" for interior decor and has cleverly maintained the beautiful Victorian doors, skirting boards, high ceilings, wooden floors, external tiles, and combined them all with ultra modern decor. It works superbly and looks stunning.

Location is great as its a 10 minute walk to the V&A Waterfront, yet far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet round the well planned and beautifully manicured pool area.

Each guestroom has it's own individual style and is equipped with everything one needs. My room had a mezzanine bedroom. Room 2. My friend's room (1) was incredibly spacious and light with a large en suite.  A well stocked fridge, hairdryer, toiletries, tv, air con, tea, coffee, are all complimentary. The beds are king size, very comfortable, with comfy pillows. Bed linen is fresh, crisp white cotton.

Breakfast is amazing. There is a wide choice of pastries, conserves, meats, cheeses, muffins, flapjacks, cooked breakfast to order and my favourite, eggs benedict. A choice of coffees and teas is also available. Truly spoilt for choice.

Now to the beautiful people who made our holiday fantastic. Thanks to Bianca, Daniel, Vichna, Yvonne, Anola, Shaffeika, and last but certainly not least, Samuel. You all went above and beyond to make our holiday so memorable. Everything was done with a smile and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you all so very much.

I cannot recommend Cape Diem highly enough. We will certainly be back next year.

My mother and I stayed here for a week whilst travelling through SA... what can I say, other than excellent for a b & b.. in fact, calling it a b & b is belittling it's 5 star service.

All the staff were friendly and extremely helpful - we couldn't fault their hospitality, we were made to feel very welcome.

Their breakfasts were delicious and I can highly recommend the eggs Benedict!!

Our room was large and spacious, we were at the front of the building, the only downside was the real wood flooring, beautiful though it may be it is not conducive to noise reduction. You could easily hear the comings and goings of the other guests, so not ideal for light sleepers.

Would definitely recommend staying here and would go back again.

We were only at Cape Diem for two nights (having been in Tamboerskloof for five nights previous to that), but what a warm welcome and fabulous service we received! The superior room in the separate building was gorgeous. Breakfast was gourmet in taste and presentation. It's an easy walk to the V & A Waterfront, and crossing the multi-lane main road at the bottom of Vesperdene proved to be no problem at all. We had a very early departure for a flight at 5:45 a.m. and the night manager was fantastic, both in making sure that we were all set the previous night, and being on hand at that ungodly hour to see us into our taxi (arranged by Cape Diem). Thank you for making our brief stay such a pleasant one!
