2nd time in Cape Town
Stayed at Sonnekus for 4 nights during our stay in the Cape Town area. It is a charming but somewhat retro place. The location is very nice, just steps from the beach in the front and beautiful views of the mountains on the back. The owners are very friendly and nice people. Kalk Bay is a short walk and have some nice restaurants, cafes and artsy shops. Apparently due to the road work in nearby Muizenberg, the internet was down. That is a problem for international travelers, but it takes a long time to fix things in Africa when a govt. entity (Telkom) is involved.

Good3.0 / 5
Pleasant stay but decor outdated
A brief 1-night stay in March 2015 on our way to Cape Point from the wine country. A nice safe location for walking to dinner, and right across the street from the water. The hotel owners were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was well prepared. With no A/C we slept with the windows open (it was a warm summer night) and there was some street noise, but nothing intolerable. My only real complaint is cosmetic - it's a really beautiful old house but could definitely use some upgrading. The bedding and decor throughout the house had an outdated 90's feel that reminded me of being at my grandparents house. But overall it was a pleasant stay.
