We enjoyed our stay at Underberghouse. The hosts were helpful and on hand to serve breakfast. The room was comfortable with a good modern bathroom. The location was great - on a quiet residential street, walking distance to restaurants and a short drive to the main attractions of Cape Town.

Beautiful, well-maintained historic house in a safe residential neighborhood in Cape Town. Hosts told us to feel at home, and we did. Public areas of the house (living room and bar) are very welcoming and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and it will be our first choice for future visits to Cape Town.

My wife and son spent a week at Underberg in October 2016. Five of us had stayed there two years earlier and we had no hesitation in returning. Everything was just as good, the food, the rooms, the facilities and the staff but thanks are especially due for all the help and support Anne and Bruce provided when my wife's...

The house which was built 1860, has been impressively refurbished by Bruce. Rooms are clean and comfortable and stocked with nice toiletries. The common and living areas are...
