Hi and Welcome!

We're an owner-run guest house in the suburb of Observatory, Cape Town - below the towering Devil's Peak as it runs down to the Liesbeek River.

Just out of the city centre, yet close to all the major highways - Observatory is a cosmopolitan and vibey enclave, populated by academics, professionals, artists, and students. The village centre hosts an eclectic range of shops, internet cafes, restaurants, pubs and music venues.

Koornhoop Manor House is just a few minutes walk away, one of the original farm homesteads and one of the first Guest Houses in South Africa. We have 8 en-suite double and single rooms and two large furnished self-catering apartments (3 bedrooms, lounge and kitchen). more details..

We offer a full-spread continental breakfast, secure parking, a beautiful big garden to relax in, and personalised service from your hosts - that's us, Vic and Trish Smith :)

We have advice on where to go, what to do, and how to arrange it - so you can make the most of your stay, whether business or leisure.

Cape Town is a beautiful city. We would like you to enjoy it!
