Interaction with guests

TOURS
---------

Guests are most welcome to request daily tours of the vineyards and the lush surroundings of breathtaking Cape Town. Call me or text me if you need anything, I am here to make your stay comfortable and pleasant.

There is so much to see and explore in this seaside town. Don't miss the opportunity to hop on the Red Bus, it's a lovely tour and you immediately get a feel.for what's in store for you.

WATERFRONT
--------------------

The waterfront offers a number of boat rides, take an uber to the waterfront, (always take a light sweater and or raincoat incase you want to board a boat for a lovely trip out into the vast blue waters, it gets windy at sea) The pirate boat has face painting for the kids and offers themed boat tour.

SUNSCREEN
-----------------

Sunscreen is critical, it gets very hot out here and even in winter, the daytime sun is hot and piercing.

BOTTLED WATER
------------------------

Always carry bottled water and a minimum amount of cash for the day trip. Leave all major credit cards at home or in your hotel. That way you minimise your risk in the event you lose your bag or forget your bag on a boat ride or in an uber.

ATM
------

Be vigilant at ATM machines and contact the local police if you encounter any hassles. DON FLAUNT WADS OF CASH NOTES, the locals don't earn much so you want to keep a low profile and safeguard your cash and belongings.

RESTAURANTS
---------------------
Be careful at restaurants, waiters do clone your credit cards very swiftly. Be aware when paying for your meal and never give your card to the waiter to process at the till. Insist that the portable credit card machine is brought to your table.

There have been incidents of card cloning even in top restaurants where you don't expect it to happen.

Be careful at gas stations, they swipe your card and bill you and then inform you that the machine is faulty, they tell you that the transaction has not gone through. They then go and get another machine and swipe your card for the second time. When you reach your destination and check your sms, you find that two duplicate transactions have gone through.

In most instances you have to prove this happened and call the gas station manger etc etc, it's such a hassle and so time consuming, most people don't bother. It puts a damper on your vacation. The gas station attendants know that customers don't come back.

Watch out for pick pocketing in malls and on buses and in crowded areas.
Cell phone theft is also something you need to watch at beaches and in restaurants and malls. Do not leave your handbag on the chair when you go to the washroom, keep your personal stuff on you at all times

It's general safety rules. Cape Town is a dream!!! So come on over and be safe and vigilant.

Thank you for visiting this precious City. We honour all guest from abroad.

There were some negative comments on Shayin's place noting strict regulations, issues with the building and so on. I had none of that. I stayed here for a month and was completely comfortable, undisturbed and welcomed. As noted by others, the location is wonderful, the flat breezy and bright. The bed is comfy, linen fresh and clean. Street noise is hard to keep out - it didn't bother me but I wouldn't recommend the place to light sleepers. Shayin was a great host - always available by phone, never obtrusive. I can truly recommend this place to anyone looking for an affordable, comfortable stay in Sea Point.
