The rooms are spacious and clean. My family and I enjoyed the friendliness of staff. The location makes it easy to access Cape point, Airport and CPT City. Next time you visit the mother city, Sonnekus Guest house is the best place to stay.

About
Description
Sonnekus, a gracious old home, circa 1926, sits at the base of the St James Mountain with the waters of False Bay at her feet. The Guest House has been lovingly restored with guest's comfort in mind and each Room More has been individually styled drawing inspiration from the sea and mountain views. Enjoy our generous breakfast, either hot or cold or even both if you have a good appetite at breakfast time. Special diets can be catered for, just let us know before the time and we will see that your needs are met. Whale watch (May to November), take leisurely strolls along the promenade, sun bathe on the beach, or go fishing from land or sea. Play Golf at one of the two Golf Courses nearby, approximately 5Kms north or south or perhaps, a set or two of Tennis to prepare your appetite for Dinner. There many excellent restaurants within walking distance, you can of course take the car if you prefer. Easy access to all major Tourist attractions e.G. Table Mountain, Cape Point and the Winelands, and a wide variety of interesting places in and around the Western Cape A resident Tourist Guide assists with information on the Western, Eastern and Northern Cape and personalised guided Tours can be arranged Come and experience our old fashioned hospitality, with all the modern comforts Less
