Fantastic stay

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: Everything. Just want we wanted, very personal atmosphere
Location: Right by the water, Restaurants close by
We had a wonderful stay at Sonnekus. The owners cannot be nicer, thank you for changing the flat tire on our rental car. We had a superb dinner in the next town and left SA the next day. Sonnekus made it hard to say goodbye. Great location, beautiful room with a view, tasty breakfast and fantastic hosts.

Friendly elegance

Posted Mar 14, 2015
Pros: Friendly helpful hosts. Elegance. Really nice breakfast. Great views. Very comfortable.
Location: We were near the Table mountain park and Cape point, beaches with penguins, Muisenberg beach huts, the Stellenbosch botanical gardens.
We stayed for 2 nights at Sonnekus. We couldn't believe how elegant the room was. It had a high ceiling, polished wooden floors, a lovely comfortable bed and Pam closed the shutters and curtains for us while we were out at dinner. They had thought of everything including an honesty bar in the dining room. We ate breakfast out on the verandah overlooking the sea and Cape point. The only negative was the breakfast power cut but they coped admirably under the circumstances. It was a very special great value place to stay.

Better than Home!

Posted Feb 24, 2015 on Hotels.com
Travelling with a three year old to SA for the first time, and a bit daunted by the prospect, we were thoroughly delighted to find Sonnekus, in the very beautiful and relaxed Kalk Bay area of Cape Town. Run with care, thoughtfulness and professionalism by a lovely family team who've been in the area for generations, it was the personal touches and feeling of being wanted guests in a lovely home that really made our stay. The BnB is straight across the road from a perfect fossicking beach, with tidal pools close by in either direction for safe (and chilly!) swimming, and easy, pretty 10 - 15 minute walks to neighbouring Kalk Bay and Muizenberg with eateries and quirky shops. Our large and very comfortable room had an awesome view up at the craggy Muizenberg Mountains, sunbirds feeding outside every morning. Brekkie was bountiful and delicious and the honour bar was a great idea for parents having to be back in the room early evening. Owner Mike is also a registered and very knowledgeable tour guide. We spent two full days exploring, learning and laughing with him, and experienced much more than we would have on our own. Thank you Pat, Mike and Nick, you made our South African adventure Jol!

Tolle Unterkunft

Wunderbare Unterkunft. Die Besitzerin ist so herzlich und freundlich, man fühlt sich sofort zuhause. Zu den Restaurants in Kalk Bay konnte man in 15 Minuten laufen. Der Strand ist direkt über die Straße. Leckeres Frühstück

Sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt

Posted Feb 21, 2015 on Hotels.com
Sehr freundlicher Service, gutes, individuell zubereitetes Frühstück (aber auch kleines Buffet vorhanden). Um in einen etwas belebteren Stadtteil zu kommen (Restaurants), sind ein paar Minuten Spaziergang am Strand nach notwendig. Würde das Sonnekus Guesthouse jederzeit wieder buchen.

Charming spot

Posted Feb 19, 2015 on Hotels.com
We thoroughly enjoyed the Sonnekus, especially our delightful hostess, Pat and her funny, friendly son who prepared our breakfast. Our room was spotless and charming, as well as quite large. We were made to feel right at home immediately. The only aspect of the hotel I didn't love was that the road and trains run between it and the water. In all other regards it was an excellent price performer.

Lovely!

Posted Jan 29, 2015
Location was perfectly situated between Cape Town city and Cape Point and Simons Town. It was perfect for our Holiday! The ocean and mountains are all part of the beautiful view, with the beach just across the street. Pat and all of the staff went above and beyond! Breakfast was delicious! Would definitely recommend.
