Stayed for only one night, but the room was clean, and the decor was great. What was more impressive was the view at sunrise. Sadly I don't recommend it for those who don't travel light, like me... I had a 24kg suitcase to get up the 99 steps (luckily I had a strong friend to help)

The views from the deck are amazing. But it's 99 steps from the street to the guest house. The breakfast cooked by Dee was lovely. there is a common kitchen if you'd like to cook your own meals. one caveat: when booking, i advised that we would arrive between 16:00 to 17:00. However, no one was at the guest house...

This is a beautiful guesthouse, interesting and tastefully decorate large bedrooms and communal area. The views from the balcony are absolutely stunning (even in the rain!) only downside was the 130+ steps up to it which was a bit of a killer with heavy bags. The breakfast was delicious and service charming.

This guest house has very friendly staff and owner, great hot cooked breakfast, great service. The view is excellent of Muizenberg Bay, and a 10 minute walk to the beach. There are steps to walk up, but that's great exercise for me. Love the exercise.Love the fresh air, great balcony to sit. Great self catering facilities, great room, comfy bed,...

Very nice guest house on a hill, yet easy to walk to restaurants and to the market. Rooms are nice, creatively decorated, with balconies and view. The guests are diverse travelers from around the world. Pleasant atmosphere. Drinks are available in fridge by honor system. Very nice breakfast. We had a very pleasant stay.

The Guesthouse is at the top of 131steps and both Andrew and Taryn are extremely friendly. Both of them are more than happy to advise and recommend activities and restaurants in the area. The view is spectacular and absorbing. The cost is reasonable by Cape Town standards and breakfast was more than sufficient.

Friendly clean and stunning view, fantastic guest house on the side of a mountain, the only catch is the 135 stairs to get there, but well worth the climb. The owners were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was yummy and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. I will certainly stay here again, highly recommended.
