What a amazing place to stay. In the sleepy little town of Kalk Bay lies a amazing little bed and breakfast where their customer service simply amazes. We stayed 2 nights in the loft which was a wonderful experience. Every morning the staff would bring you a cup of coffee (or tea, your choice) straight to your room and my... More

Stayed here as a couple. Had our own little cottage. Neat and tidy, however the house-keeping was not up to scratch. The ladies at reception were amazing. Super friendly and helpful. Overall a pleasant stay. I would however look into a updated makeover on the rooms.

We enjoyed this location as a relaxing starting point for our day trips to Cape Point, the city centre, Franschhoek and more. The team gave us a warm welcome and helpful advices on where to go to. The room 'Seaview' was lovely with a beautiful view on the ocean.
