“Truly a home away from home!”
Reviewed 22 October 2017 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in Park West Cottage from September 2016 to July 2017, and found this lovely cottage to be truly a home away from home. It is situated in the leafy suburb of Newlands, on a quiet tree-lined street. It is within walking distance of UCT, Cavendish Mall, a Melissa’s coffee/grocery shop, Newlands Forest, and several restaurants/pubs, and within easy driving distance of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the city bowl, Table Mountain Cableway, and the Cape Peninsula. So, it is very well situated.

The cottage itself is cozy, comfortable, impeccably clean, secure, and very well equipped. It is situated in the garden of the home of the friendly hosts, and looks out at Table Mountain, and the swimming pool. The sitting room has large windows where the sun streams in and you can sit and admire the views of the mountain and the hosts’ lovely garden. The kitchen is well supplied, and has a sitting area that also affords a view of the mountain. The bedroom is very large, as is the ensuite bathroom, which has both a large bath and shower. The linen is top quality, and the king-sized bed is very comfortable. Wall heaters throughout the cottage keep it warm in winter, while the numerous windows ensure a cooling breeze in summer. Situated as it is within the walled garden of the hosts’ home, the cottage is very safe. There is secure parking within the walled garden for a guest’s vehicle.

What truly makes this cottage special, however, are the hosts Debby and Neil. They will go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy a wonderful stay with them. Nothing is too much trouble. Whenever we left on a holiday, we would return to find the fridge stocked for us. We would often return from a day out to discover that Debby had left us treats – fresh apples and pears from the family farm were a favourite. Both Neil and Debby were full of helpful advice regarding hiking trails, scenic drives, and shops etc. They always made us feel welcome and part of their family.

If you are considering a stay in Cape Town, then we would highly recommend Park West Cottage. You will not be disappointed.

“Great cottage”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Quiet location in the heart of Newlands and within walking distance of bars and restaurants. The 'cottage' is a single storey wing of the main house. It has a fully fitted modern kitchen, dining area, comfortable lounge and large bedroom and bathroom. The owners are happy for guests to share the garden, terrace and pool and are very friendly and welcoming.
