Tranquility - consistently superb !

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 02 Apr 2019
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.

    We loved every second of our stay at the guesthouse. Jan and his family take such good care of you, there are no words to describe how kind they are.
    Jan and Bonny make your breakfast with fresh fruits, egg and bacon, muffins and much more just for you every morning.
    Every room has sea view...it is just incredible. We will come back for sure.
    Thank you Jan, Bonny, Jessie, Holly, Suki and Cocoa!!

    Rooms light and spacious. Great hospitality and very warm welcome. Highlight was the quality of the breakfast provided and the level of local information offered. We would have no hesitation in staying there again should we return to the area.
