This guesthouse is situated in a nice and quiet (although it's in a big city) neighbourhood and is perfect spot to have good logistics between all the hotspots (Camps Bay, V&A Waterfront, table mountain, etc.) in Cape Town. The accommodation itself is nice and cosy and has that "feel like home vibe" which we seek in a guesthouse. Every morning...

A nice 10 minute walk down the hill brought you to the supermarket and restaurants, and of course the ocean. I really enjoyed the fact that Maarten's offered a small refridge for guests to keep food. Made it easy to pick up a few...
