Pleasant guest house near sea front & shops

Posted Apr 29, 2016
Pros: The Guest house is in a quiet residential side street in between the sea front with pleasant promenade and shopping high street with restaurants.
Cons: Can't think of anything significant that could be improved
Location: Q&A Waterfront 1 hour walk along sea front. Cape Town centre shops likewise 10 min in car/taxi. Mountain /hills /coastline make this beautiful locatio
Thoroughly enjoyed staying 1 week at this Guest House. Owner and staff looked after our every need. Lots to do in and around Cape Town - vineyards, Cape Peninsula, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Chapman's Peak - all stunning scenery. We found this guest house a friendly and pleasant base for our holiday activities.

Olaf's guest house os fantastic

Posted Oct 4, 2015
This place is perfectly located. There are 4 Myciti bus lines, the beach, and the citysightseeing hop-on-hop-off bus all within 5 mins walk. Lot's of restaurants, supermarkets, and pharmarcy on the mthe main road. The staff was great. And the house was very quiet even though it was at full capacity. We will definitely stay here if we visit Capetown again. Note, there's no electrical outlet in the bathroom. So bring cordless shaver or ask for extension cord.

good hotel in good location

Posted Jan 24, 2015
I had the front room which was a bit noisy with all the coming and going. Would recommend a room at the back or upstairs and then everything else would be perfect.

Had the Sea Point room

Posted Jan 22, 2015
Pros: nice and cosy and good location
Cons: nothing really
Room also had private table for breakfast on the porch. Unfortunately this is one of the noisiest rooms being in front and you hear everyone coming and going and the staff preparing for breakfast. Would recommend a room upstairs or in the back. Other than that the place is great.

Very nice hotel, friendly, very clean, central.

Posted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: CLEAN
Cons: No
Location: Excellent restaurants walking distance to the beach.
What a surprise! I am so skeptical I don't trust websites at all, but I found a lovely house, clean, nicely decorated, convenient to good restaurants and the sea. Will go back any time.

Couldn't ask for anything more.

Posted Nov 25, 2013
Pros: Location, Friendly staff, breakfast. Like a home from home.
Cons: Cant think of a thing.
Location: Location is excellent. 5 mins from everything u want in Cape Town.
We had an amazing stay here. Its situated 5 mins taxi ride from the main waterfront and a 30 sec walk to the sea. They catered for our every need and sorted all our trips and problems for us. Absolutely superb place to stay for the cost. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Can not fault the place.
