Pleasant stay but decor outdatedPosted Jun 26, 2015 on Hotels
A brief 1-night stay in March 2015 on our way to Cape Point from the wine country. A nice safe location for walking to dinner, and right across the street from the water. The hotel owners were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was well prepared. With no A/C we slept with the windows open (it was a warm summer night) and there was some street noise, but nothing intolerable. My only real complaint is cosmetic - it's a really beautiful old house but could definitely use some upgrading. The bedding and decor throughout the house had an outdated 90's feel that reminded me of being at my grandparents house. But overall it was a pleasant stay.

Sonnekus Guest HomePosted Apr 13, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel does not have a secure parking facility. We were not asked about our choice of rooms and it was quite evident that there were better rooms available.

Fantastic stayPosted 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.

Trevlig vistelsePosted Mar 18, 2015 on Hotels
Vi kände oss välkomna och som om vi bodde hos goda vänner. Det blev flera trevliga samtal med Pat o Mike och vi fick tips o råd när vi hade frågor. Rummet var fantastiskt och frukosten mycket god.Genomfartstrafiken gick precis framför huset så det var en del ljud från den .Trafiken var extra livlig p.g.a av en skogsbrand som gjorde att en del andra vägar var avstängda.Vi tillbringade 4 nätter på Sonnekus Guesthouse och hann med utflykt till Cape of Good hope samt vandrade upp på Tablemountain vilket var ganska ansträngande med väl värt begäret när vi väl kom upp.

Friendly elegancePosted 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
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 UnterkunftPosted Feb 23, 2015 on Hotels
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
