This is a shared house by 4 Gay guys, and even though we dont mind who stays, gay men are preference of course.
My section is private even though attached to the main house.
There is a rear courtyard area with pool, and facilities to barbeque.
There are four small dogs who are very loving and well...dogs... so they sometimes bark but are well behaved little critters :)

Guests can use the entire back area as they wish.
The housemate who lives in the separate entrance will be here to oversee anything/everything should I not be here.

Wonderful stay at Grant's! Absolute freedom and privacy if you want. But he also took me to many good (or "lekker" should I say) restaurants. The whole atmosphere of the house is friendly and everybody has been gentle to me. Thank you all!

Thank you, it was a great place to stay in Pinelands! Beautiful, traquil apartement with a very big swimming-pool in the back yard! It was fantastic! We fell in love with those sweet dogs, they were all the time around us. Character Galore is a perfect place to relax and to start your trips around Cape Town. We really enjoyed our time. Thank you, Grant. Our best greetings to Dominique too, who gave us all the information we needed. Marjut & Marjut
