From the moment we arrived Maarten made us very welcome and was very helpful with local knowledge
Maarten is a really nice guys who tries to do the best for his guest and give the best possible Information. It seems a bit that he tries to hard and is not relaxed enough. But very helpful for booking trips, restaurants etc. The breakfast was great, we ate the best bread roll during our stay there. A good selection for the perfect start in the day. The location is not in the city centre but close the Sea Point, so if you like it quite qualm it's perfect. You can go downtown by taxi easily. From the terrace you can see the ocean and Robben Island.
As Maarten is Dutch the most of his guest are Dutch... nothing against them, but sitting at breakfast all together (which is a nice idea) and hearing only Dutch (which we don't understand) can be quite exhausting as start in the day... Maarten tries in our opinion a bit too much to please everybody. So when we said we want to go to Robben Island he was very into it to organise it for us. But when we came back and it was not good at all (I wouldn't recommend to go there!) he said that it is not good organised and he is not supporting... this he didn't tell us before. We didn't really warm up to him, although he was very friendly all the time.
Friendly and helpfull owner with good advice, good/safe location, strong WiFi, great breakfast, clean and nice rooms.
Kind owner, who will help you with everything during your stay. Nice pool to relax Room was clean Breakfast was delicious.
The guesthouse is very noisy, thin walls and ceilings.
We made a last minute booking for the small standard room. However, when we arrived, there was a cancellation and we were upgraded to the suite with a balcony overlooking the ocean. What a treat! Furnishings are tastefully done, good location, gated parking, friendly hosts and an excellent breakfast all rounded our stay off perfectly. Will definitely visit again.
Perfect location with awesome ocean view and very classy furniture. Maarten, your host, was accessible at any time and very helpful. The breakfast was well done and very tasty. We definitly would book it again.
Marteen was great, gave good tips about caeptown and helped us book tickets online.
The place is nice and quiet with views in different directions one side Signal Hill and you can also catch a view of the ocean on the other side. The atmosphere at the breakfast table is very homely, it allows the guests to interact. Staff always at hand to help. Will definitely recommend this place to other people
Our only challenge was parking due to our car being too low we had to park outside the gate although the area is safe.
It was disappointing that out of the 3 nights we only got breakfast once. There was no discount on our bill, nor did we get offered a little take away package. I understand that on the day of the Argus Race at 6am, this was very early. Still a good coffee in the morning would have been great. If someone would have shown us, we could have done it ourselves. Breakfast was from 8-10am, I find that too late!
Maartens himself has a personal touch that made his place so homely. He would advise on where to go, how to go about it. He personally drove me down to the table mountains to save time. I will definitely be returning. Nice and safe neighborhood yet close to water fronts.
The owner and staff were great. Good advice on where to go, where to eat. We were made to feel very welcome
Maarten is a fantastic host; helpful, approachable and great fun to speak to. The guesthouse is in a wonderful location and has a relaxed atmosphere. Maarten's staff serve a delicious breakfast and you come back to a beautifully clean room each morning. As for facilities, the wifi is good, a computer is available to guests and there is a common lounge and bar, as well as a swimming pool. We really could not have asked for more and will stay here again when we come back to Cape Town.
I like to give balanced reviews, so I've thought hard about ideas for improvement. I really can't think of any.
A wonderful guesthouse. Thank you Maarten, you were such a wonderful host. This is a lovely B&B and I dont believe you will find better in this location.
