"Just a Perfect Stay"
Reviewed 21 December 2014
I've spent 8 days in that beautiful place. Everything was just great - the location, the house design and comfort, all very clean and breakfast is always awesome. Most of all, Jules was available for all questions and assistance. He organized for me the tours to the Cape of Good Hope and to the Winesland area. He took care of all needs and was a perfect host. During my stay I just felt at home with these two amazing persons. So guys - thanks for everything and I will come back again.

"Third Times a Charm"
Reviewed 16 January 2015
Third consecutive year. This visit was 17 days including Christmas & New Years. As per usual special & precious. Simon hale hearty so helpful and understanding. Julian fabulously mad & on top of things. Our needs & desires fulfilled. Our friend Albert makes the House feel as if we are home. My spouse & I are returning in April, for 3-6 months, Cactus House will be our FOB. In all my travels Cactus House is the most pleasant gay guest house/resort I have experienced.

Very nice all male guest house in Cape Town. Friendly staff. Beautiful Victorian building. Nice atmosphere. Beds extremely comfortable and spacious. The room I stayed in was on the ground floor with access to the front garden. Made it nicer.

"Beautiful location, great Victorian, helpful staff"
Reviewed 12 January 2015
We booked here on a friends recommendation and were not disappointed. It is a beautiful old Victorian home in a great location. We booked one of the upstairs front room with a balcony and a view of Table Mountain. The room itself is large and well appointed. The bathroom spacious and comfortable. Julian and Albert keep the place clean, Julian assisted in arranging an airport pickup and a private tour to Cape Point. Simon gave us amazing restaurant recommendations. We will be back and highly recommend it.
