Beautiful views, exceptionally clean rooms and a great breakfast. Really feels like a home from home, probably due to Beatie wanting your stay to be as pleasant as possible. The 3 beaches are beautiful and clean. There is a penguin colony well worth visiting, 3 fresh water lakes, mountain views to die for as well as the Harold Porter botanical...

Bucaco Sud!! The name caught our attention and curiosity! This is an older guest house in a great location with lots of great restaurants near by. Breakfasts were great, Beatie looked after us and gave us the lowdown on the local Baboons! Must keep shutters closed during the day so they don't come into the rooms and look for sugar...

We had a great stay at bucaco sud. We met Jean, the owner of bucaco. He gave necessary information for our stay in B. Bay and Capetown. The accommodation is very close to the penguins, we had a nice and cozy night, lovely breakfast and if we 'll have the possibility we come back.

I just phoned to try my luck and make a booking for one night in December '16. I got laughed off asking if I want to make the booking for 2019 and was then told in a very patronising tone that they will only help me with a room if I book two nights. I understand that 100%, but there...
