We stayed at Chez Max for almost a week and loved every minute of it. The house is beautifully arranged and it's located in a great neighborhood full of character. We felt at home in Chez Max and did not want to leave. Although we didn't get to meet Axel, we did have the great pleasure of meeting his partner Mario. Mario was an amazing host who made our experience in the city unforgettable. Mario was incredibly kind, helpful, generous and knowledgeable. He even welcomed us into his home in the wine region for a few glasses of wine! We cannot wait to go back to Cape Town and stay at Axel and Mario's again!

This is a lovely house in an interesting part of town - very close to loads of good restaurants and coffee shops and fab views of Table Mountain. Very well equipped, comfortable and interesting. Host was charming and helpful.

Axel and Mario's home was absolutely perfect in every way. My friends and I had an amazing time. Bo Kaap is a great location, walkable to Bree, Long, and Wale Streets for restaurants and bars. It's also a short Uber or cab ride away from the Waterkunt, Sea Point, Green Point, and other areas. I will definitely be back next year and would recommend to others.

If you have the opportunity to stay at Chez Max, do it! Gorgeous house with amazing views and I don't know how you'd find better hosts than Axel and Mario.... they are simply the best. Booking was quick and easy, they had a ton of information and recommendations at the house, then Mario gave us even more suggestions when we checked in! It's a great location, everything you could need is in the house and again - the view from the rooftop can't be beat. Thank you Axel and Mario for sharing your beautiful home with us and it was great getting to know you!

The house is very nice, trendy and comfortable and in a superb location. The terrace is amazing with great views of the Table Mountain. We had a very good stay in the house, enjopyed the place. Everythiong worked perfectly even we didnt't use all house facilities, but it was a very good and nice house to stay after a long day. Nice restaurants and places to have breakfast within a walking distance, as well as night life in Long Street. Thanks Axel for everything.

My partner Mario Motti and me travelled extensively on business and privately, getting to know many of the hotels and guest houses both in Europe and the entire world. We really felt at home far from home in privately run charming villas and homes. That is why we created these cosy and charming spaces for the discerned traveller in Cape Town and Franschhoek(wine lands)
One of our hobbies is to enjoy good food and wine, best pairing them together. As previous owner of a winery with hotel and restaurant we happily inform our guests about the best restaurants in Cape Town and the wine lands.
Welcome to Cape Town!
