And once again beautiful
  • And once again we arrived at this beautiful guesthouse and were warmly welcomed by Peter and Mai. The house is safely located in a guarded estate. We move into a nice room with air conditioning, TV, fast WiFi and a wonderful view of False Bay. The breakfast is very rich, sometimes there is fresh meat loaf or salmon or bacon smoked by the host himself. Peter also learned to bake wonderful bread. Thanks to the solar system on the roof, you are no longer affected by the occasional power cuts. Peter provides his guests with tips on good restaurants, reserves tee times for golfers and advises on excursions in the area. This time too we felt very comfortable here.
    Dear Peter, dear Mai, thank you very much for the wonderful time with you.

Arrive with friends
  • For the second time we spent a few days with Peter and Mai in Somerset West. Immediately upon arrival you are warmly welcomed and simply feel at home. Peter is in his element at breakfast in the morning. It's incredibly diverse and he goes to get fresh bread rolls every day. He smokes salmon, ham and sausage himself, cooks jams, bakes hearty bread...then a fresh egg dish is prepared on request. Of course there are also fresh fruits, everything your heart desires. He then asks the guests about their plans for the day and always gives unknown tips. You can always rely on the restaurant recommendations. He is happy to make reservations. A host for whom nothing is too much. It is a B&B run with passion

Sensational accommodation with a great host
  • Excellent accommodation with an unbeatably good host who is second to none! Peter and Mai are simply awesome! All rooms are furnished with attention to detail and have very high-quality furnishings. Everything is sparkling clean, the room is cleaned several times a day. The view of the beautifully landscaped garden is incredibly beautiful! An incredible expanse and great sunsets can be admired here! There are enough loungers with cushions available, the pool is heated and extremely clean! The breakfast offered is absolutely amazing and is prepared every morning with great attention to detail and served on the terrace. When it comes to service, I would like to give it 10 stars! Peter and Mai are awesome! No matter what you need, be it a tip or a reservation for a restaurant, a day tour or other little things in everyday life, the two of them have advice and recommendations for everything! In addition, the incredible friendship paired with an infectious warmth - world class! Many a “luxury house” can get a big thumbs up here!

The feel-good factor in this house is great!
  • We were guests of Peter and Mai for 4 weeks. What can I say? The feel-good factor in this house is great!
    Our room was cozy, very clean, very well equipped, nothing was missing. The beds with a choice of different upholstery invite you to dream.
    Even after 4 weeks, we looked forward to the excellent, lovingly prepared breakfast every day with delicious, additional surprises such as home-baked bread, home-smoked salmon or bacon, home-made jams, wonderful fresh fruit and much more.
    The garden with wonderful plants and flowers is equipped with enough comfortable loungers and a pool. The view of the sea and the mountains is unique, from the terrace you can enjoy the romantic atmosphere at sunset!
    Security: The house is located in a guarded, gated resort with almost exclusively private villas. You are completely safe there.

Sensational accommodation!
  • I've seen a lot of accommodation in South Africa, but this one is really unique. Starting with the location in a very nice gated community. Ideal for day trips to Cape Town or the Winelands. The garden is lovingly landscaped and maintained and offers a great pool with a fantastic view. The breakfast was sensational, I wouldn't have expected it in a B&B. The hospitality of the owners Peter and Mai is also second to none. They gave us great tips and even made reservations in restaurants. Absolute recommendation!!

As always perfect!
  • My husband and I were Peter and Mai's guests for the fourth time and, as always, we felt extremely comfortable. It's like coming home.
    The rooms are beautiful, the view from the garden is breathtaking. The breakfast is rich and varied and is always enriched by Peter with small delicacies, such as home-smoked ham or salmon and home-baked bread.
    Everything is done to ensure that the guests feel comfortable and every wish is fulfilled if possible. Reservations, whether it's a restaurant or a round of golf, are no problem. No idea what to do? Peter definitely has a tip ready. He is always available to give advice and support.
    Contact with the other guests is always a pleasure. You get to know very nice, interesting people.
    All in all, it was another lovely, relaxed holiday with lovely people.
    Highly recommended. And we would love to come back.
