Makapa Lodge Guest Reviews

“Ian and Margaret were the most fantastic hosts, as we began our trip in the Cape. From the moment we reached the 'Nest', we relaxed and were able to take in the beautiful surroundings of their garden, which reflects a host of endemic local fauna and flora, as well as a myriad of South Africa's rich birdlife. We were lucky enough to have a pair of nesting Cape Sugarbirds to watch while we braaied. As a couple's retreat, it is fantastic and couldn't come more highly recommended. It was a memorable holiday too, as we got engaged on top of Table Mountain on our second day. Thank you Ian and Margaret, we will be back! Faye and Kurt.”

“Great place in a stunning location and an absolute birder's paradise - we were treated to Sunbirds and Sugarbirds outside our door every morning. Ian and Margaret are very accommodating hosts with a wealth of local knowledge.”

“We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of Joburg and Makapa was the ideal place to relax and unwind!

The photos on the website didn't do it justice, it was even more perfect in real life!

An ideal spot to hideaway away for a few days but also well located should you want to see the sights of the city. Fantastic value for money. We couldn't believe the yummy full English breakfast was included in the price! We will definitely go back again soon.”

“I needed a place to stay whilst visiting relatives and booked The Nest with high hopes. I wasn't disappointed. The Nest had everything you could possibly need and more. It was comfortable, private and near to the flora and fauna. Margaret and Ian were on hand if I needed anything. I took up the offer of a half day birdwatching with Ian. This was excellent, especially as Ian is so enthusiastic. I recommend Makapa Lodge for a stay in Capri Village.”

“Makapa Lodge is a very homely guesthouse. Maybe even better than home. A 30 min drive from Cape Town International(CPT) this lodge is situated in Capri Village near the Kommeitjie Road in Fishhoek. There are 5 rooms out of which one is self catering and the rest are bed and breakfast. Supplies for the self catering cabin can be bought in the Pick n Pay store(the walmart of south africa) in longbeach mall which is about 5km from the lodge. It is an absolutely amazing location. There are a few restaraunts around but really good but expensive restaraunts can be found in Camp's Bay, Downtown and Kalk's Bay. The owners of Makapa Lodge, namely Ian and Margaret are very friendly. The rooms are very clean and well organized. Its actually luxury. The lodge will provide brochures of Cape Town. Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope are also close. There is some birdlife around the lodge. The breakfast is absolutely amazing cooked by Ian and Margaret themselves. One more thing, this place is absolutely safe. Our 3 day stay was amazing. At the end we never wanted to leave. I would prefer staying in Makapa Lodge rather than staying in Taj Cape Town, Protea or Tsogo Sun.”

“We spent 4 nights at Makapa Lodge at the end of January 2013. An excellent location as only a short drive from both Cape Point and all the sites of Cape Town with many picturesque towns and fabulous beaches in-between to discover. Ian and Margaret were fabulous hosts and a mine of information of where to visit or eat, when to go and will even book for you. The rooms were lovely, spacious and spotless, the breakfast plentiful and tasty and the added bonus of a delightful pool and gardens to relax in after a days exploring. Highly recommend.”

“ We spent 3 nights at Makapa Lodge towards the end of February 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our poolside suite was very comfortable and well furnished. It opened straight out on the patio area infront of the pool. The views from the room and from the breakfast balcony are breathtaking looking straight out over the Atlantic and Chapmans Peak. The local restaurants are excellent, we particularly enjoyed the Food Barn on the way to Noordhoek, just a 5 minute drive away from Makapa Lodge. There are many restaurants in Fish hoek which are less than 5 minutes drive. Makapa Lodge is a very peaceful haven yet very close to all the major attractions of the area. Nothing is too much trouble for Margaret and Ian and help you plan your day or your evening and are happy to book your reservations at local restaurants. We are hoping to visit the Cape Town area again in 2013 and certainly hope to join Margaret and Ian again. ”

“ A big thank you to Margaret and Ian for helping our stay to be so great. The location, views, amenities and hospitality were first class. Very helpful advice as to where to eat locally, suitable time to visit Table Mountain, helping to book boarding cards etc. As other reviews state, Makapa Lodge is ideally situated for visits to Cape Town and Cape Point and all other places inbetween. I wish we had been able to stay longer, then we could have relaxed in the lovely garden too. Would love to stay again. ”

“ We have now stayed here on two occasions.The lodge itself has a lovely setting and while centrally located has outstanding views across to the ocean and Chapman's Peak.Cape Point and Cape Town itself are only about 30-40 minutes' drive away,Cape Town airport is also within one hour's drive.Access to the main attractions and towns along the peninsula is easy.The accommodation is clean,modern,well appointed and of good size. It is relaxing to sit at the poolside or explore the extensive gardens which are filled with native flowers and shrubs.There is a good sized shopping mall a few minutes' drive away and very good restaurants nearby.Ian and Margaret are wonderful hosts and Ian has a lot of information on local wildlife.They will also advise on sightseeing and local culture.They have two friendly and loveable dogs but are quite happy to keep the dogs away from guests if requested. ”

“ Amazing location on the peninsula and so convenient for all points on the Cape including Cape Town and access to the West Coast. Breakfast situation gives wonderful views and the food is plentiful and satisfying. The accommodation is immaculately clean, spacious and relaxing with everything you need. Ian and Margaret are wonderful hosts with a vast knowledge of the area around. We would love to return and take part in one of Ian's bird watching trips. ”
