Better than best. We had a very nice experience

Rooms a spacious and clean, lovely view of the ocean and mountains. Unfortunately the WiFi hardly works, breakfast needs to be arranged the night before ( we were never told this) and the hostess is rude. Sonnekus is perfectly situated between Muizenberg beach and Kalk bay. Lovely guest house. I will not be going back.

Loved the homeliness and the personalised service - the hosts go out of their way to ensure that all your needs are met. The area is very safe and you can walk along the beach & to the nearby shops

Beautiful location, walking distance to tidal pools and Kalk Bay shops, restaurants and places of interest. Hosts Pat, Mike and Nic were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Missed the signage and advice about water usage generally, but particularly in the room and bathroom considering Cape Town's water restrictions.
