The property sits at the foot of Table Mountain and was designed to make the best of the spectacular views overlooking the city, V&A Waterfront, the harbour and beyond. A large veranda allows guest to mull over the vista at leisure, with the gentle ripple of a koi pond and swimming pool in the background.

“Feels like home”
Experience five-star service in luxurious accommodation that feels like home, perched high above the city lights. The wallpaper beckons you to touch it, the Karin Miller artwork screams to be stared at, the chairs demand to be sat on and the arty little pieces all around the guesthouse warrant more a passing glance.

“Where to take her”
To restore your mind, body and soul we suggest a getaway with your wife or girlfriend once the festive season is over, somewhere to impress her as much as yourself. MannaBay, in the city bowl of Cape Town, could be your answer... it's not the most masculine guesthouse... but it could be one of the most luxurious.

“Scrumptious homemade pastries”
The City Bowl has given birth to yet another gem. MannaBay's rooms, designed by Joe Jacob who likens decorating to creating fairy tales, are a treasure trove of eccentric paraphernalia. Take advantage of the heated outdoor pool and views of Cape Town's much-loved mountain.
