Stayed here during a 9 day stay in Cape Town and was the perfect base for the area. Yves & Co were great hosts giving a genuine welcome and lots of information to get you around Cape Town and it’s surrounding area. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again :)

If you visit capetown and don't stay here you really missed alot of what south Africa is all about,it people. Yves and Valerie are the epitome of gracious guesthouse owners. Their place is amazing , and so comfortable. Located on the edge of downtown it was an oasis from our busy days of sight seeing. Their breakfast was scrumptious an we left our luggage and were able to change up and use their facilities before heading to our evening flight. Thank you guys again Julia, Kenzie and John

We came to Cape Town to visit our daughter at UCT and see some sights, and we are so grateful that we chose the Carmichael Guesthouse for our stay! The warm welcome and helpful tips and travel arrangements by the hosts, and the beauty and perfect location of the house and gardens, made this one of favorite trips of all time. Highly recommended for anyone!

Dear Diana,

Thank you for these sweet words. We've truly enjoyed having you with us whilst visiting your daughter studying at UCT. Not only did we get to host the two of you, but we are now expect your two other daughters in May and even Philippe's brother's family in a few days. We are so grateful, thank you!
All the best / Yves & Valerie

This is a lovely place to spend days and evenings while visiting this exciting city. The hosts are helpful, breakfast is a delight and the ambiance comfortable. We were lucky to stay in a suite with a beautiful setting to enjoy late summer warmth. You are out of city center but Ubers are available for a quick ride to Table Mountain or the K gardens. We hired a driver they recommended for a day tour to Cape Point and wine country, a highlight of our 3 week trip! Consider a stay here if you enjoy understated luxury!

We loved every minute of our stay at Charmichael Guesthouse!!! Every detail of the property from the gardens to the guest rooms were perfectly thought out and exquisitely decorated in a Colonial yet modern style. Our room was absolutely massive with a beautiful high ceiling, it had everything you’d need and we have nil complaints about it! Breakfast was awesome - full continental spread which was divine along with a cooked breakfast of your choice - class! Finally, our hosts were amazing!!! They are a lovely couple who can’t do enough for their guests - sometimes hosts are overbearing or completely non-present, but these guys struck the balance just right! They helped us book tickets for table mountain, sorted us dinner reservations and even checked us into our flights and printed off our boarding cards so we could have an extra half hour in bed - I can’t speak highly enough of them! I’m sure you get the drift, but if you stay here I guarantee you won’t be disappointed! We’ll definitely be back!!!
