From our bed we could see the ocean, a nice bonus! What makes this place truely magical are the hosts Marjolein and Marc. They both...

We had a great stay at African Queen Quest House, recommended by a friend of us, it's a perfect location to discover Cape Town area. The apartment is very complete en well decorated. The breakfast was lovely, even with some small decoration on Valentine day ;-).

Marc Bakker and Marjolijn Botje stop at nothing to make you feel special at their guest house. We booked out most of the Guest House for our wedding guests and every guests raved about their room and how welcome...

The location of African Queen is fantastic to visit the whole Cape and Cape Town. Warm and friendly staff who prepares a delicious breakfast. Near to good restaurants as the Food Barn and Harbour House in Kalk's bay.

We had no accommodation booked and needed to find something last minute. Marc was super accommodating and even though he said he only had one room left, apparently their smallest, we felt that it was just perfect! Everything we needed!! He knows the area so well and directed us to some great local eateries. We will definitely be back!!

Very welcoming guest house , relaxed friendly atmosphere and we met some great people also travelling too. Marc's Braii is a must if you are there at the right time - indeed the cooked breakfasts are pretty special too. Great venue for a beach walk, visiting Cape Point Vineyards or walking in Silvermine reserve. Do try to visit Kommetigie the...

Marjolijn en Marc were very helpful and gave us a real warm welcome. The rooms are well decorated and clean with lots of privacy in the garden. Great breakfast as well! Noordhoek is a very nice town with a great beach.
