The space

Modern double storey home perfect for families with young children who like to cook and BBQ.

Smeg gas stove and large oven are great for cooking big meals. Nespresso coffee machine and wide selection of teas. We also have anything young parents might need - from Stokke baby chair to cot, baby gates, bath seat, toys, blankies, storybooks, etc. House also has Wifi, Netflix, DSTV, Playstation, large sound system and old skool vinyls for home entertainment. Lots of books to read. Giant bean bag in living room that kids love to lounge on. Trampoline in the backyard. Bedroom at the back has en-suite bathroom with shower with a glass door opening up to the courtyard, and bedroom overlooks back herb garden with an outside table. Front verandah has nice views of Signal Hill - perfect for viewing the sunset and enjoying a glass of local wine.

Study in the passageway with plugs for laptops and book shelf with lots of good reads.

PETS: Please note we have two CATS who live on the property.

LOCATION: We are located in the historic area of District 6 with easy access to both highways (De Waal Drive & Nelson Mandela Boulevard) and national roads (N2 from the airport & N1 to the winelands). 10 minutes from V&A Waterfront and fabulous Cape Town CBD with its trendy bars, great restaurants and shopping (if there is traffic), 15 minutes from Constantia Wine Route, 20 minutes from all major beaches and 25 minutes from the airport. An Uber into town costs around R23 and to the airport about R200. Take a taxi if you're going to be drinking, the police do regular roadblocks.

FIRST AID: We'll leave you with a first aid kit with bandages, burnshield etc, as well as all emergency numbers. We are 10 minutes away from 3 great hospitals.

SECURITY: It's like fort knox - garage, burglar bars, security gates and alarm system - although crime isn't too bad in this area. We'll also share some safety tips.

Guest access

Security gates on all doors. Front door and gate access via a set of keys. Please indicate if you will need an extra set of keys.

Interaction with guests

Before arrival I like a friendly introduction and to learn a little bit about who you are and your travel plans to Cape Town. It's always nice to know what your sleeping requirements are (how many beds you need, how many adults, children or babies), when you'll be arriving and if there is anything you need.

During your stay I'll generally leave you in peace, but will be happy to answer any questions you might have, give advice on restaurants etc, and to chat about your check-out time and to hear if you enjoyed your stay.

Karen and Barry's home is very quirky! From the outside you never imagine how lovely it is inside. The neighbourhood - district 6 is about 10 min drive from central Cape Town and equally same to the cable car for table mountain. Close to Kloof Road which has lots of restaurants and bars. Security is good and it is a residential street so felt safe. We were travelling with our 1 year old and the place is fully equipped with cot, high chair, baby gates which is what we needed coming from the UK!

Zonnebloem is an amazing location. The house is as you see on this picture. Lots of light, great design and furnishing, we loved it. Very well equipped kitchen, Karen is very friendly and quick to respond to any questions. She also took care to ensure that we settled in well, she kindly offered us snacks and wine. Her tips on places to go and restaurants to eat were great ! We had a great time with Kiteau and Gracie, the 2 lovely cats :) We will definitely come back! Thank you for everything Karen.

This was the perfect place in Cape Town for me and my family to stay. Karen was so kind and helpful ..a real five star host !! She made us feel very welcome and had even left us some wine and snacks . Her tips on places to go and restaurants to eat were great ! The house is very beautiful and nicely located, sadly we only could stay there for one night. I can highly recommend staying here if your are planning an trip to Cape Town!

Thank you for letting us stay in your home, it was much better than staying in a hotel especially with young children. We will definitely contact Karen again should we need accommodation in Cape Town again. It is a lovely home, very good location!

We would never ever prefere a 5 Star Hotel with pool! There is no better way for a family to stay in the center of Cape Town than staying in Karen's and Barry's beautiful house. Thank you Karen!
