So Comfortable!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 02 Jan 2020via mobile
Just want to add a few words to the many complements expressed in other reviews here. We had three nights in the Tranquility Guest House and it was a pity that we didn’t have more time. Jan and Bonny (and the dogs) go out of their way to make you feel at home. The rooms are everything that the pictures suggest and the views are breathtaking.
The guest house is well positioned for a day at Boulder Bay to see the penguins and also a trip down the coast to Cape Point (also highly recommended) however a car is pretty much a prerequisite.
Thank You Jan and Bonny - we’ll be back!

Thanks very much Peter and Chris for taking the time to write such a lovely review. When I saw the name of the reviewer my heart skipped a beat!. It was lovely having your whole family stay with us and we hope to be able to welcome you again some time.

Concerning Jonathan's jumper, we think it might be best if Bonny takes it with her to the UK and post it from there. We are always concerned about the South African postal service as we have had some bad experiences in the past. She will arrive in London on the 20th of January and we hope that is in order.

Kind Regards from all of us,

Jan

The biggest compliment I can give this establishment is; "It feels like home!". The hosts/owners are Jan and Bonny Vat, who welcomed me like a family member and made me feel at home. The room had all the required amenities and was cleaned to perfection, adorned with beautiful artwork by Bonny herself. The breakfasts were prepared by Jan and was delicious, with freshly baked cheese scone (daily), apple and banana muffins and crumpets, topped by the best homemade apricot jam, strawberry jam and marmalade. If you love crispy bacon, this is the guesthouse to stay at. Jan and Bonny knows Fish Hoek and the surrounding areas very well and gave excellent advice on restaurants and site seeing! Highly recommended!

From arrival to check-out, Jan, Bonnie, Alice and the girls made me feel so at home. At check-in, I was greeted with the wonderful smell of freshly-baked muffins - a delight for a weary soul - served with great coffee on a pretty tray in my room with spectacular views over the bay. The rooms are beautiful and the attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Breakfast was a feast - even though I was the only guest for two nights (low season and rainy) they prepared the most delicious home-cooked hot breakfasts with seasonal fruit salad, yoghurt etc, as if it was no trouble at all. Thank you, Jan and Bonnie, for your hospitality, your time, your chats and the delicious baked goodies. xx

We spent the last night of a 2 week trip to South Africa here, and had a perfect stay. The house is very charming, with great views from the balconies and rooms on the bay. We had great talks with Jan and Bonnie, and heard a lot of interesting stories. Just to show how great they are.. they knew when we checked out, we would visit Simon's Town before heading off to the airport, and when they found an e-reader in the bedroom, and they were not successful reaching us by phone (our fault) they drove to Simon's Town and were able to locate us at a local restaurant to bring the e-reader back. Super people, we highly recommend this guest house!
