All the rave reviews are true! This is a delightful place to stay: friendly, informative hosts, bountiful and delicious breakfast, tastefully decorated rooms, a lovely view over Fish Hoek Bay. Tranquility makes a perfect base for travel in this interesting, beautiful area.

I urge anyone traveling in Cape Town to stay at Desiree's beautiful guest house You will love the beautiful house and stunning views. You will be made to feel very welcome. Fishoek is close to all the best tourist spots. Desiree has suggestions, maps and knows where the best restaurants are. The breakfast was far better than a hotel could...

This was our second visit to Tranquility Guest House - and we hope it won't be our last. The Taskes family's peerless ability to radiate the warmest of welcomes, combined with outstanding comfort, amazing vistas over Fish Hoek and the bay (yes, we did see several whales) and painstaking attention to detail made it supremely difficult to leave.

To me this is a B&B, it feels like you are at home (unlike at a hotel, motel and some other B&B's) where you don't even know the owner. This is like visiting family or friends and you stay over. A hearty welcoming with a cup of coffee / tea and a nice chat. The area and stay are very...

A model of comfort, hospitality and attention to detail. As the address suggests set in the suberbs overlooking Fish Hoek; beautiful views over the bay but strong legs needed to climb hills or even the steps upto your room. Modest sized rooms but everything you will need Great breakfasts good advice on where to go. Located midway between Cape of...

It was amazing. The room was "top shelf"spacious. Clean comfortable with breathtaking views." Tranquility" the name perfectly chosen for the atmosphere. The breakfasts were mouth watering everything home baked and made just the way we like it. A service "second to none". A hospitality "one has to experience". It shows how much you all "love what you do"

Set about 30 minutes outside Cape Town city, this B and B was set in an excellent location with outstanding views across the southern oceans and mountains. Upon arrival, it looked like a steep climb up the drive would put you off but once inside, the accommodation was beyond reproach. The facilities left nothing to be desired and the standards...
