Both the atmosphere and the hostess are extremely friendly. Nice garden outlook. Good value. Safe location. Unfortunately not serviced. Adequate kitchen facilities. Toilet area very cramped. Good for short or long stay.

Conveniently situated to explore the Cape Peninsula with a railway station only a few hundred meters away. Tourist passes can be purchased so you can explore all the little villages up to Simon's Town hopping on/off at your leisure. Although the trains are not very...

Arlene was very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was good value for money and had all the facilities we could have wished for, although our stay was only for one night. Unfortunately, the wi-fi connection was 'hit and miss' but this was not Arlene's fault.

Really enjoyed our 2 night stay. The pictures on the site do not do the cottage justice. Use of space is so efficient and decor is really cute with a few statement pieces. Hosts are friendly and hospitable. It is clean and the beds are good quality. Couch is really bad though; Uncomfortable to sit on. Area is really quiet,...

I am in love with the beautiful wooden finishes and high ceilings, large garden, spacious rooms and bright blue pool. Thoughtful items for self catering made my stay very comfortable. I loved the pillows, comfortable mattress and warm dry towels at the end of a rainy day. That crisp mountain view so lifts the soul. Please hug Luke, your darling...

On arrival the accommodation was neat and tidy. We were very happy with the service, especially arriving at 01H30 in the morning, a plan was made for me to get the keys without disturbing anyone. The accommodation had all we needed and we feel that we got value for money and will use this accommodation again in the future.

A warm welcome by our host who was always on hand to respond to our queries. It is also pet-friendly so we could take our pooch with us. Just wished there were a few DSTV channels... Otherwise it was comfortable, clean, secure and the location good.
