Do not stay at this guesthouse if you do not want to be overwhelmed with kindness. Fantastic central position on the Cape Peninsular. 40 Minutes from Cape Town. 10 minutes from Kalk Bay in that direction. 10 minutes from Boulder Beach full of penguins on the way to Cape Point 40 minutes away in the other direction.. Fantastic bed. Gorgeous generous help. Breakfasts that set you up till teatime.

We’re just back from a thoroughly wonderful stay at Tranquility. We knew we’d arrived at a special place when greeted with fresh fruit, chocolate and Jan’s friendly welcome. The luxurious linens, comfortable beds, tasteful furnishings, well-equipped kitchenette, delicious breakfast and gorgeous views exceeded all expectations! We also had the use of the common areas of the house and loved sitting in the living room and looking over the bay. On New Year’s Eve, we were even treated to a complimentary bottle of bubbly! Thank you Bonnie and Jan, we’ll definitely be back.

Our room was well equipped, spacious, and leading onto a balcony with a magnificent view. The garden leads directly onto the mountain and is a birders paradise. We had a wonderful time identifying a vairety of sun and sugar birds. The highlight of our visit was our first ever sighting of a Porcupine. Our hosts went out of their way to cater for our dietry requirements. Needless to say, our breakfast was delicious. We will definately return.

I enjoyed staying at Tranquility Guest House a lot. The hosts were amazing, warm, caring and very welcoming. The house and the room was very well looked after and there was so much attention to detail. Breakfast was amazing too. Just can recommend everyone to stay at this place, which is situated directly at the foot of the mountain. Very good value for money.

Excellent breakfast, very kind host and of course tranquil!
We stayed two-times in the Tranquility Guesthouse during our journey thru the Western Cape. And we will surely come back on our next stay in the Cape Town region.
