Having read reviews on this guest house prior to arrival we knew it was going to be great, however our expectations were far exceeded. Dawn and her staff were absolutely amazing, making our stay very personable and comforting. With great attention to detail and 5* touches, the hospitality will be very memorable. The room had an excellent sea view, outstanding...

What a great place to stay in Camps Bay! Dawn knows her stuff and is like a concierge. I did not see the other rooms but our room had an amazing view, was luxury, and felt like a top boutique hotel. This is amazing value for camps bay and walking distance to Cod Father. We are early 30's couple that...
