Guest Book

Having visited 80+ countries and even more guest houses, my wife and I, of German/Sri Lankan origin, were totally overwhelmed by the friendliness and fondness showed by Zen, the lovely host of this cozy, comfy guest house in the Mother City, Cape Town. The management was super friendly and went above and beyond their call of duty. All possible wishes and requests were attended to within shortest time.

The country-style house, with a charming garden and an inviting pool, is situated in a safe and quiet residential Cape Town area, just a short drive away from the lively and picturesque city. The house has a well-equipped kitchen which inspired my wife to conjure delicious dishes to everybody’s satisfaction. We got to know and love so many nice Capetonians with thanks to our wonderful host, who integrated us in her large circle of friends. We truly felt like in our own second home in ‘faraway’ South Africa. Four weeks flew by before we could even know it. And how we wished we could have extended our stay…

Dear Zen, yes, we are earnestly counting the days for our next rendezvous. Lots of love to you, your lovely daughter (who even lent me her best guitar!) and also to your friendly and helpful staff.

Everything was perfect….Zen is the most kindest loving person I have met. She and her staff went out of their way to make us feel us so welcome. I will go back and back again. It’s a hidden gem.. May God bless her and her guesthouse. Kind Regards

A group of six after a fantastic week on the garden route arrived at Zen’s. She couldn’t have been more helpful and the guest house was just perfect. Ideally situated and with a room backing on to the garden pool I would thoroughly recommend this guest house to anyone. Thank you Zen

We wanted to stay near the airport for an early flight. Zen’s place was just 10 minutes’ drive away. It is lovely accommodation in a peaceful suburb. Zen went out of her way to make sure our stay was perfect. She even gave up her own reservation at a fabulous nearby seafood restaurant to us. A complete gem!

Myself and my girlfriend spent a few days over the festive season at Zen’s beautiful home. Her hospitality was amazing and the facilities were too. When I return to Cape Town in the near future I will be sure to make use of Zen’s Airbnb services. Great value for money and most importantly we felt welcome into Zen’s home.

As a family we have been going through a really difficult time with my mum being in hospital. Zen was literally and figuratively what we were praying for! Zen the owner was so caring and accommodating…making sure my dad who was a bit rattled feel at home. Thank you so much I am sure we will be back. I highly recommend this venue.

The most beautiful peaceful guesthouse I have ever stayed in!

 

Firstly the host ZEN is a wonderful fun and loving person she really makes the guesthouse most comfortable you will feel at home even though you away from home.

 

I will recommend the inn style guest house to anyone it’s the most beautiful peaceful place to stay and it’s so central and the area Pinelands is also very beautiful. We want to thank you Zen for the most wonderful stay

Zen is a wonderful host, very friendly and welcoming. Her guesthouse welcomes everyone from the start, and an easy spot to explore Cape Town and it surroundings. We stayed there during NYE, and would definitely come back!

This was my first time using Airbnb and I was very hesitant at first, until I booked with Zen. I was greeted by a lovely lady named Sylvia who greeted me with a big smile and a warm welcome. Zen was so helpful and the perfect host, made me feel so welcome. An absolutely beautiful room and such a tranquil area to relax. I highly recommend staying with Zen, no matter how long your stay. This will be my first choice every time when visiting Cape Town. A great experience, enjoyed my stay so much all because of Zen and her wonderful hospitality. Ten out of ten!
