Superb guest house, lovely spacious rooms with kitchenette, living area and beautiful bathroom. Everything immaculately clean and attention to the finest detail. Great breakfast over looking the ocean. Excellent hosts and a cute little doggie! Thank you so much for hosting us for 2 nights in the beautiful Betty's Bay!!

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 August 2016

After 30 years of international travel, it is hard to find something fresh to say without resorting to tired and cliched superlatives. So bearing that in mind - here we go. Van Den Berg's is simply superb. First, the setting. The small town of Betty's Bay on South Africa's glorious Western Cape Coast. Second, the house - beautiful modern accomodation,...

We are Capetonians who like to get away from responsibilities at home from time to time. Living in the splendour that is Cape Town, means that when we do go away, the accommodation is very important, as we spend a lot of time relaxing there, and not so much time sight-seeing. Van der Bergs is the most perfect guest house...
