Bruce and Anne are phenomenal hosts. They go out of there way to make you feel special and nothing is too small for them to help you out. The house is a beautiful colonial residence. The rooms are spick and span. It is in close proximity to all the major routes and some wonderful restaurants like Beleza which is around... More

We enjoyed our stay at Underberghouse. The hosts were helpful and on hand to serve breakfast. The room was comfortable with a good modern bathroom. The location was great - on a quiet residential street, walking distance to restaurants and a short drive to the main attractions of Cape Town.

Beautiful, well-maintained historic house in a safe residential neighborhood in Cape Town. Hosts told us to feel at home, and we did. Public areas of the house (living room and bar) are very welcoming and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and it will be our first choice for future visits to Cape Town.
