Love the decor of the room, very clean and Grazeila was a great host. Breakfast was nice but even though it was a Continental breakfast I just think it needed a little bit more imagination ( but I am being picky I know) Thankyou

I found the place to be pleasant, clean and the owner is very friendly and accommodating. We only spent 1 night here, but we will definitely come back if we are in Cape Town for leisure. The breakfast, which is included in the rate was well put together and plentiful. Well done:-)

Good rooms and beds, but maybe a little expensive for the little facilities it have. Fine to get some rest and wake up early in the morning and go discover the city. Simple breakfast, but it fine. Ms. Graziella very friendly, have some maps of the city.

Great value, charming B&B that was perfect for our stay in Cape Town. The place is full of character, the rooms comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Graziella was helpful and welcoming and laid on breakfast early for us when we needed to get to the airport.

I would like to thank to Graziella for the unforgettable stay when I could enjoy a really friendly atmosphere in the Vagabond house during my visit of CT. Just a few + words: Graziella and her hospitality, very friendly atmosphere, the design of the room, cleanness, location, possibility to keep the luggage in the house after the check out, etc....

I stayed four nights in the Vagabond. The host Graziella was very nice, friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable, with a very nice bathroom. The guesthouse is well situated in Greenpoint, close to the city bowl and Waterfront, but on a quiet street, with enough parking. The price was reasonable as well. I would highly...

Apart from the excellent location (walking distance from services and restaurants) and the nice cozy furnishing, the cleanliness and the great breakfast, the Vagabond has a point that really makes the difference: Mrs Graziella, the lady of the house, which with her experience and her exquisite manners made our staying the most enjoyable ever. Congratulations Graziella!

Accommodation was super comfortable and close to Waterfront, Sea Point Lighthouse and downtown. You can get up early and go for a long walk and come back with a lovely fresh breakfast. Good condition and included air condition, TV, WiFi and many more. Which it is great to relax after the whole day tour.
