Dit was 'n baie vinnige, maar net-wat-mens-nodig-het-wegbreek.
As gevolg van 'n laat vlug het Bay Watch Guesthouse geen problem gehad dat ons laat kon inteken nie. Hulle was so gaaf om al klaar die ketel te kook toe ons die deur oop sluit. Die kamer is baie netjies sowel as die badkamers. Ons het dit baie geniet en dis perfek as mens 'n plekkie nodig het om met 'n geruste hart jou eenheid toe te sluit en Blouberg en omliggende areas te gaan verken. Baie dankie.

Jou huis weg van die huis
Hier word jy hartlik ontvang. Dit voel glad nie of ons by ‘n gastehuis ingeboek is nie, maar eerder of jy net by familie lekker kuier. Die kamers is gemaklik en baie mooi, en Pat is ’n uitstekende gasvrou wat gereeld seker maak dat alles nog reg en gerieflik is en dat mens okay is. Sy is ook ‘n bobaas kok, en haar kos is uit die boonste rake, met ontbyt het dit gevoel of my ouma weer kos gemaak het. Mel is ’n uitstekende toergids en met sy kennis verken en leer jy soveel meer plekker wat mens nooit eers van geweet het nie. En met al sy entosiasme, grappie en storie oor al die plekke maak dat jy sy toere net soveel meer geniet. Ons verblyf by Baywatch gastehuis was ongelooflik lekker gewees en ons hart was skoon seer om Mel en Pat te groete wat soos familie geword het in so ‘n kort tydperk. Daarom kan ons Baywatch enige tyd aanbeveel, jy kry net soveel meer waarde vir jou geld, en jy maak vriende wat voel soos familie.

Great service !!
What fabulous people, welcoming and accommodating in all ways. We were traveling with bicycles and had trouble with keys. We were assisted wonderfully. Will stay again and recommend it anytime.

Good Day Pat & Mel

We would like to take this moment to pass on our gratitude to you, you welcomed us into your home and it felt like ours. We spent 7 days in your house and not even a single day we regret that we chose you. Mel, we thank you once again for the tours you took us through, today we can go out and share our beautiful experience with friends and family. Pat, we wouldn't have managed to start our days if you didn’t offer us the nice breakfast, that was always served fresh and with love every morning before we could start our day. We also thank you for the farewell braai you did for us on the last night, you both went an extra mile to make sure that we had an unforgettable experience with both of you. You also arranged that we dine for lunch in one of most popular restaurant in Cape Town called Catch 22, they were also the best and made our Valentine’s day extra special.

As we promised, you will definitely see us soon and this time with kids, rest assured that will happen.

Thank you Mr and Mrs Fourie, you were amazing to us.

See you soon and keep well.

Much love
Mr & Mrs Thapedi

We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service was excellent. From the day we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The food was amazing and we had some very interesting conversations with Mel & Pat. It felt like our home away from home. If I could I would go and visit there every week. Simply love the place. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Friendly & super hospitable

I would definetly recommend Baywatch House to anyone looking to stay in a home away from home. The hosts are warm and helpful which contributes to making your stay more pleasurable.
Thank you for making our stay in Cape Town such a pleasure. We felt right at home from the second we stepped in and like we were staying with family. I will not look anywhere else for my next visit. So grateful for the wonderful hospitality.




We stayed here whilst in Cape Town for a family wedding. Pat and Mel are very kind warm people whose home feels like a home away from home with all the comforts of a boutique hotel. We loved our stay. Would definitely stay again.


Pat & Mel are wonderful hosts, warm-hearted and always helpful. They share their house with their guests and make them feel "at home"! Table View is a perfect starting point for Cape Town trips. And the ocean with the most beautiful beach is as it were their front yard :-) I enjoyed my 10 day stay a lot. It was a pleasure to meet you both

What a peaceful area that offers a relaxing experience with the first class service. Beautiful clean rooms with a nice outlook. The lovely hosts Mel and Pat made our stay a memorable one and we even felt like we can extend our stay. How can we forget the exceptional breakfast by Pat, so delicious. Our tour guide Mel, excellent, professional and well informed. We're not from Cape Town but we became the locals because we had an opportunity to see and be well informed about the history of the city. Baywatch, home away from home!!!

I enjoy travelling and going to B n B's, hotels and resorts etc, but sometimes less is more and this is just the place - the simplicity, the humble and peaceful nature of Baywatch House, the
environment as well as the warm welcome from the host, makes it feel like home away from home. I immediately felt welcome and at home as well as relaxed - which is what I needed.

Mel and Pat are the most approachable and generous hosts I have ever met, as an Afristay employee I found this establishment to be exactly what one needs to break away from the city life. It has a fresh, well maintained energy about it, with a stylish modern finish. Less than 5 minutes to the beach and 3 minutes to Bayside Mall. I would highly recommend this gem for a couples retreat.

Dear Mel and Pat . Thank you so much for a fun and adventure filled vacation! Thank you for your hospitality and the delicious home cooked meals. We really loved seeing and learning about Cape Town. Hope to visit and see you both again soon. May God bless you both.

Dear Mel, Pat and Debbie. We wanted to let you know that we made it back home to America safely. A long journey but we made it without any difficulty and all our wondering South African wine made it safely too. We had such a great time at Baywatch House in Cape town, thank you so very much!

Dear Mel, Pat and Debbie. This is Kevin, just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful time at Baywatch House in January 2018. We enjoyed Africa very much. We all love your country. Your cooking is the best and your tours are great! You are the best in what you do. Our family enjoyed everything and hope you get to relax a bit before the next party arrives. I wish you the best and keep in contact.

I loved my stay at your establishment. I will definitely be back. As you are conveniently located a stone throw from the office, the members of our Johannesburg staff contingent will be staying at your establishment when in the Western Cape on matters.

The experience I had at Baywatch House was wonderful. Pat and Mel were wonderful hosts and could not have been any more attentive to our needs. The meals were wonderful and plentiful. The accommodations were great and the house was very clean.

It took us no time to get set up in the room we rented, great and very friendly owners of a neat and tidy establishment, would easily recommend it for a nice and cozy stay and will definitely make use of their services again! :)

We went to Cape Town to take part in the Argus Cycle Tour and hosts, Mel and Pat made our stay hassle free, which was exactly what we needed especially after the race was cancelled. A wonderful guest house with excellent service and the rooms are neat and clean. It is well located close to shops and restaurants and is within walking distance from the beach. Mel offers exciting tours of Cape Town.

Two lovely people who run a very friendly guest house.
We stayed only 2 nights this year and it was not long enough to have a catchup and enjoy their hospitality and company.
Great value as well.
