When In Rome - We Braai!

You’re on the West Coast of South Africa, so naturally you are going to want to enjoy the locals’ favourite pastime, and BRAAI!

For the most spectacular sunset braais in Cape Town, choose your favourite spot from our two different but equally appealing braai options: a completely enclosed and beautifully placed braai in the front garden, ideal for a shady afternoon braai, or the convenient and safe indoor braai area adjacent to the Mariner’s Lounge perfect for any time and any weather.

The Main Attraction - Our Rooms!

Each one of the four spacious bedrooms inside the main self-catering guesthouse is stylishly decorated in a beautiful beach theme, has its own TV with DSTV and offers magnificent sea views.

“Rest assured” you will enjoy a good night’s rest on the king-sized beds and luxurious linen that is standard in each of our rooms. There are hairdryers available throughout the house.

My partner and I were treated like VIP guests from the moment we walked in the door at Swept Away. The room we had was spacious, clean and WARMED! 🙂 The view from the room was magnificent and it was a real treat to wake up and fall asleep to the sound of the waves. What we did not expect was the freshly baked muffins every morning (which accompanied the breakfast we ordered), the smell of which literally dragged us out of the room and into the kitchen… or the freshly made gluhwien which we were surprised with on the cold rainy Saturday evening! To say the staff were friendly and helpful is an understatement. Inge is a lovely, warm German lady and we felt very welcome.
