    There are a lot of narrow stairs to climb both to get up to the front door and within the house. This was not too much of a problem for us, but it may restrict access for people with heavy luggage or mobility issues.

    Desiree and Gill are wonderfuls hosts and strive hard to meet every need before it is perceived. Their enthusiasm, attentiveness and sincere interest in their guests is pervasive. The garden and rooms are beautiful and the light air blowing through the curtains is a refreshing treat.

    We thought the guest house was on the beach, which it is not, but the beach is a very short drive away. You could walk, but it would be a steep uphill on the way back if you aren't fit.

    Wonderful hosts, great breakfast, lovely room with a great view and a comfortable bed. Great attention to detail.

    The only complaint is that the information on the water situation could have been a little more transparent and straight forward. Otherwise, when we got our water for showering, everything was all right. Felt like a second honeymoon. :D

    This accommodation is just amazing: wonderful views and breakfasts that go beyond what you could hope for. All fresh made by excellent hime cooks.

    Loved it all.

    Desiree and her parents who run Tranquility were so welcoming and friendly and couldn’t have done more to make us feel at home. They are high up on the hillside with wonderful views of the bay and mountains and it’s only a 15 minute walk to the beach. Breakfast was delicious.

    There was nothing we did not like about Tranquility except leaving.

    The lovely people at Tranquility are their strongest feature, and they were so helpful and kind. I was there with my 11 year old son, and we were made to feel like family. The house is beautiful on the hills above Fish Hoek giving a lovely view of the valley and beach, and opening to the mountain at the back which my son loved to climb. The rooms are beautifully decorated with fresh flowers in vases. Excellent and varied breakfasts. We will definitely return.

    Amazing home and heartwarming hostess Desiree! We had lovely week staying here and discovering Cape. Would recommend it to anybody looking for recharge and Cape discovery. The place is even better than on pics, and the experience is unforgettable. You will wake up with a view over mountains and ocean, have incredible breakfast - both perfectly tasty and perfectly decorated. You can drive around for Cape Town, Cape Point, wine alleys and animal interaction. Desiree will help you with "must see" list and a booking for the perfect dinner. The room is very clean and very comfortable.
