Africa Room - Southern Cross Guest House
We had the Africa room at the Southern Guest house - it was big and had 2 bathrooms! There is a great patio & pool area as well as nice seating areas on the property. The hosts are friendly and helpful!

Thank you for hospitality and 1 night availability
Wanted an overnight stay near a winery that was featuring a special paired dinner. (Did not want to drive too far). The Southern Cross was only a couple of miles away and was exactly what we wanted. We even arrived early so we could use their pool (cool) and shower before the dinner. Everything was great.

Excellent accommodation
We had a great stay at southern cross! Claudia & Marc were so friendly and welcoming upon our arrival and provided us with good information of where to visit and have our meals. The room decoration was so lovely and we could had see the ocean from our level 2 room. Its such a great place to hang out and spend a couple of days. There is no need to travel out with its alluring pool and chill out area. Strongly recommend anyone to stay there!

Excellent breakfast and comfortable rooms
Comfortable beds and excellent breakfast. Suggest taking a pair of slippers as the floors are not carpeted and can be cold in winter. Be aware that this guest house CLOSES AT 6PM so even if you have a booking confirmation for the evening and arrive after 6 pm you may not be accommodated
