Cap Serein Guest House
High on the mountain slopes overlooking the fishing port of Hout Bay, the only noise you will encounter here is chirping birds and the occasional splash from the koi ponds. Recently restored in the style of Provence, Cap Serein Guest House is about peace, quiet and exceptional cuisine.

Each spacious suite and cottage at Cap Serein Guest House comes with a satellite television, tea/coffee facilities and a private patio. They either overlook the Atlantic ocean, the mountains or the Guest House’s gardens.

Expect superb breakfasts in our sun room, with cooked fare and a selection of home-baked pastries. You can also see Kurt’s dinner menu and decide if you’d like to stay in for the evening. We have options for everyone; ranging from three-course meals to a simple snack to end the day.

After a dip in the pool, guest can relax on the sun terrace or enjoy a night in our jacuzzi. The shady garden is full of nooks and crannies, with plenty of corners where you can lose yourself in a good book or simply relax under Cape Town`s sun. Guests can roam around the old-established garden and find their own peaceful spot. The front of the house features a sunroom with WiFi access and a beautiful sun terrace with a jacuzzi and pool.

An airport shuttle is available with prior arrangement to Cape Town International Airport, 27 km away. Cap Serein guests can also expect secure off-street parking and automatic lights to show the way through the garden at night. We recommend a rental car, but tourist buses and the local public bus is available nearby.

Please arrange with us if another bed is required in a room to sleep a third person, as not all rooms have enough space for three guests. Some of our rooms are wheelchair-friendly.

We have one loving dogs on the property and therefore cannot allow any further pets. The rooms are strictly non-smoking. We do provide ashtrays for outside smoking.
