We stayed in Makapa Lodge in March for 3 nights. It is the ideal place for bird watchers and nature lovers. In the morning hours the guinea fowl family was walking through the garden, then the birds came to visit the fountain or the proteas. The location is close to the Cape but also to the beach towns. Margret and Ian were very helpful to find our way around. In the evenings we watched the sun set. What more can you wish for ?

We spent 4 nights at Makapa Lodge at the end of January 2013. An excellent location as only a short drive from both Cape Point and all the sites of Cape Town with many picturesque towns and fabulous beaches in-between to discover.
Ian and Margaret were fabulous hosts and a mine of information of where to visit or eat, when to go and will even book for you.
The rooms were lovely, spacious and spotless, the breakfast plentiful and tasty and the added bonus of a delightful pool and gardens to relax in after a days exploring.
Highly recommend.

Do not take "WIFI" for granted. It come and goes. And if it is there, bandwidth is negligible.
That might be true for many places in South Africa. But here, I experienced it to be worse.
No clue if one can do anything about it. But before someone will report s.th. positive about WIFI, I will not stay there a second time.

The rest is as the other recommending visitors say:
- friendly
- clean
- nice price/value ratio (for non business)

In the last days of december we stayed in the beautiful Garden Room of Makapa Lodge. The room was nicely decorated and the owners were very hospitable. Makapa Lodge is in a good location and from here you can explore the cape region and Capetown.
