Our accommodations are all within walking distance to the beach and kite-, surf spots. Is there a better start into the day than with the sound of the waves in your ears and a glimpse of the sea?


We pride ourselves on 20 years expertise in hosting surf and sports crazy visitors. Still proud to call this our home, there are a few things that make us stand out- not only do you book a room, but also the whole Cape Town insider knowledge which comes with it. We'll tell you what spot to surf when, where to get your gear fixed, that best flat white, your organic veggies, morning yoga kick or simply the nicest location to enjoy the food culture of the mother city.
