Chartfield Guesthouse

Last updated: 24 December, 2023

A century-old seaside mansion forms the heart of this charming guesthouse in the bohemian suburb of Kalk Bay.

There’s an excellent range of bright and airy rooms on offer, catering for couples and families alike.

The facilities are more impressive than you’d expect, and include a spacious garden, large swimming pool and wide terrace with glorious ocean views. The (included) breakfast is superb, but you’ll also find dozens of great restaurants nearby.

Hands-on owners ensure service is always on-point, from arrival to the morning tea and coffee wake-up service.

Surrounding area

The historic seaside suburb of Kalk Bay blends the everyday charm of its picturesque fishing harbour with a boho-chic main drag filled with restaurants, galleries and boutiques. You’ll feel like you’re in a village, yet it’s an easy drive to many of the Cape’s most popular destinations.
