Beautiful Guest House

We have traveled for many years all over the world and this guest house was the best we have ever stayed at. The ambience, hospitality, food, host, and attention to detail are unparalleled. I wish we didn't live so far away so we can enjoy this beautiful place more often. It has our highest recommendation.


Truly Exceptional experience!

What an incredible location, atmosphere and host! William and his team's hospitality, attention to detail and effortless charm is fantastic. We had an exceptional dinner and breakfast. William's background in hospitality and cooking is evident, his passion shines.

Creativity, quirkiness, fun and laughter throughout my stay. I can definitely recommend Residence William French to both local and international guests.
Do yourself the favor of visiting!


Lovely place. Room was big and spacious. Beautiful views and decor all over the house. William is a wonderful host who made us feel at home and added personal touch to our stay. Highly recommend a visit and we hope to be back soon.

The attention to detail and comfort is extraordinary and the views are an absolute tonic for the soul. We were lucky enough to be invited to a chefs dinner par excellence and so enjoyed meeting the other guests We’ll be back very soon!

Wonderful view from a world-class nest.Wonderful ocean view from the room’s terrace, very comfortable bed and welcoming personnel including a delicious breakfast! William helped us book a table at a very good restaurant in Simon’s Town which made our one-night stay even more unique!



A very very nice experience! There were a very nice ambience and both of us very much enjoyed the interiors and the spectacular view. The host was excellent and the breakfast fantastic …and so was the lunch salad and the wine choosen!



Great place from comfort, amazing views and service, loved every minute of our stay. Staff was very helpful and was willing to help with all our needs. Breakfast was continental, fresh baked bread which was a great bonus. We will def be back again.
