5/5 Excellent

Had a great stay here- felt like home away from home. Loved the communal kitchen area which always had home baked cake and refreshments available. Although the pool area is small- it was never busy and the views were just spectacular. The staff were wonderful, friendly and attentive. The area is a great area to stay in for exploring Cape Town- not too far from anything. Thanks russ Georgia and team- we’ll be recommending you!

I stayed at 52 De Wet for 5 nights when visiting Cape Town and greatly enjoyed my visit. The property is beautiful and you can't beat the views here. The location was convenient for us, as even though it's not very walkable, Ubers were easily available and very cheap around the area. There were plenty of restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive. The staff/owners were very nice and accommodating and gave us great recommendations for dinners and other activities in Cape Town.

Loved it!

This is easily Cape Town's best kept secret! Classy and homely at the same time. The staff were very nice, friendly and welcoming, going above and beyond to make you happy. I had an urgent dry-cleaning request and they made sure I had my jacket back by the time I needed it. The views are breathtaking as well especially when the sun is out. The area is peaceful and perfect for a hike and long walks. There isn't a 24-hour on-site restaurant but they can have meals cooked for you on request or you can easily order from Uber eats if you aren't able to go out. Breakfast is also made every morning by the kitchen staff, who also bake the best cookies. I only stayed for one night and my only regret is that I wish I had stayed longer.
