The whole experience was so wonderful! Lee and Johan have a wonderful B&B that is a true gem. I feel so lucky to have found their place. I can't recommend it enough and can't wait to stay there again!

The Chocolate House has two properties in completely different locations. I stayed in the place, which is new. The owner is extremely nice, but the room is just like a regular bedroom - not a hotel room. There was no desk, for example. I thought that I booked the other place and for visiting Cape Town, the place I stayed... More

The guest house is as unique as its owners! We really enjoyed our stay in the most beautiful room (Angel room). Johan and Lee are very friendly and helpful and do their best to make you feel welcome. Breakfast is servedat any time, which is also very nice.

The Chocolate House was one of several B&Bs that we visited during our 3 weeks in South Africa, and is likely our favourite. There are so many reasons for this. To begin, the welcome we received was nothing short of wonderful. Lee and Johan were so warm and friendly, and we chatted for a long time, getting to know each... More

The location of the chocolate house will be moving to Blouberg Strand soon for those who do not know yet - so we did not want to go into too much details about the present location or the rooms etc. for now, except that it's all good...and that the new venue will set a very high standard of it's own...

The Chocolate House is a real home from home. It's in a great location - close to the airport and within easy access of the highway north and south of Cape Town. Johan and Lee are most attentive and friendly hosts. Can also recommend the full English breakfast!

I knew there was something different about this place when I got such an effusive welcoming message following our booking. Just a "have a nice day" standard message I thought. However, when we arrived it quickly became clear that all of the welcoming was the real thing. Johan and Lee are such good (and funny) people and they really did... More
