We reserved two nights. Counted on advertised $58 a night. Arrived on day 2 due to flight change. Owner charged us just one night but it was still $100 or so. Not quite sure about this. Staff and owner super nice and gracious. Need a car or uber to get there.

This should be a last ditch effort option. Shower is in the middle of the room and the toilet is in the shower. Staff try but clearly have no idea what they are doing. I would avoid and will not be returning.

We had a function in Noordhoek and decided to book accommodation near Simon's town. When we arrived at the guest house, there was no one to greet us. When they finally did arrive, everything was disorganised. The housekeeper is very friendly, but she did not know where to put us. She then said we can stay in the family room....
