Our high-ceiling bedroom in the trendy Observatory neighborhood in Cape Town has wooden floors and is very cosy and comfortable. You have access to the kitchen and dining room which lead out onto a leafy courtyard. There is a brick barbeque (braai) and a view of Devil's Peak, and the side of Table Mountain. Wifi and laundry included. Meals can be arranged at an additional fee. There are also many restaurants, bars and entertainment within a few minutes from our home. Very safe and secure.
The bedroom is most comfortable for 1 person who wishes to stay short or long term and best for accommodating 2 people for shorter stays. There is a queen-sized bed with a firm orthopedic mattress for individuals weighing up to 150 kg. You will share our recently renovated home, including the spacious bathroom, with two professional people. The bathroom has a bath and big double shower with hand shower. There are many windows looking out to the blue skies outside, trees and leafy hedge.
Our home is clean and neat and our domestic lady, Monica is very reliable, trustworthy and thorough. We will gladly do reasonable amounts of washing and ironing, included in the price. For longer stays a housekeeping fee will be charged. Please request a safe for locking away valuables should you need one.
We can discuss food sharing, contributions, cooking and arrangements upon your arrival.
All rooms except the office and our bedroom.
Interaction with guests
We are available at any time. Please feel free chat to us about anything. We love people so often invite our guests to share a meal.
Other things to note
We have 3 cats. Please note this is a smoking house. We make fires in summer and winter to cook food on or to warm the house :-)
There are CCTV cameras outside our house and security fencing. The house is very safe and the CCTV is non-intrusive. We are signed up with an armed response security company (ADT) that monitors the house alarm and will respond in case of emergency. For the duration of your stay, you will be supplied with a set of keys and a panic button.
No official rules. We believe in mutual respect and consideration. The only thing we ask, because we are sharing a space, is that you leave an area clean after use.
We are a laid back couple who would like to welcome you into our home, which we share with 3 beautiful and well-loved cats. Coffee is at the top of the drinks menu and you'll be sharing in the joy first thing every morning. Cooking is one of our pleasures with pickings from our mini herb garden and organic veggies from our favourite grocer. We often start a fire for a braai in the middle of the week, weather permitting. One of our regular outings is a drive to Kalk Bay harbour for fresh wild caught fish. Sushi is another favourite which we order in at least twice a month.
We love traveling but we love our country too so we mostly plan trips within SA. We'll have lots of tips and recommendations for you as well as a slideshow if you like. Photography is Lenita's great passion and part-time income from Weddings, product shoots, etc.
Please note that we are smokers. We occasionally invite friends over for a dinner or birthday party and/or a few drinks. We love music and hope you do too!
