This delightful, airy one-bedroom suite has a huge flower-filled patio and use of the swimming pool for summer al-fresco living. But inside is gorgeous too, with comfy King-size xl bed (which can be made up as two twin beds) and tasteful lounge and kitchen. It's the largest of our three guest suites/cottages.

The space

Hillingdale House Cottage is one of three 1-bedroom suites set in our large mature gardens. All are exquisitely furnished to a level of comfort and quality that will exceed your expectations.
Hillingdale House Cottage adjoins the main house but has it's own entrance and patio filled with flowers and hanging baskets. While walking past the herb and veggie garden you are welcome to raid it.
The large King-size extra long bed is super comfy, and can be made into two singles if required. The sofa and TV area area are spacious and relaxing, and the cottage has a shower bathroom and neat kitchen. TV with full satellite package and Wifi means you are fully in touch.
You are also invited to spend time around the communal pool surrounded by lawns and large trees.
It's the perfect refuge after a tiring day of tourism or business, or after cheering on your children in the sports events at the renowned schools close by.

Guest access

There is a dedicated shaded parking bay inside the property for each of the three cottages, accessed via an automatic gate. Our location is brilliant for getting in and out of Cape Town for business and to all the tourists sights via a main highway. Staying with us you get the luxury of retreating into peaceful, tranquil space at the end of the day.

Interaction with guests

We (Tessa & Steve) live on the property and you will see our domestic helper and gardener pottering around too. Patience and Gloria are happy to assist with your washing, just ask them about the small fee. We have friendly dogs that have free roam of the property, and they will give you a warm welcome.

Other things to note

Being so close to some of Cape Town's most renowned schools - Wynberg Boys High & Wynberg Girls High are right on our doorstep - our accommodation is perfect for out-of-town parents attending schoool events and people on business as well as tourists wanting real comfort.

With free Wifi our quiet peaceful rooms are excellent for business guests.

This was a perfect little apartment for our 3 days in Capetown . It is a stones throw from the stunning Kirstenbosch gardens. It is spotless comfortable and Tess is an amazing host. I strongly recommend this Airbnb

Lovely private apartment. Beautifully furnished. Tessa has real style and flair in that department. Everything was thought of: tea and coffee biscuits provided with additional breakfast options in the fridge upon our arrival. The room was tidied and bed made over night which I hadn't expected so it was like being in a hotel suite! Chocolates in our room too. All extremely comfortable. Couldn't have wanted better.

We enjoyed our stay with Tessa very much. The flat is beautifully decorated, very spacious with a separate kitchen area and living area with couch and tv. There is a lovely patio area where we had our breakfast every morning. Tessa and her husband Steve were very welcoming and extremely helpful. We originally booked for 2 nights and ended up staying for 8 but we could have stayed a lot longer! Highly recommended as a base for travelling around the Cape area.

Our family have lived in this beautiful home for 25 years and seen the garden mature into a beautiful tranquil space. There's plenty of space for all our guests and our friendly dogs. We look forward to meeting you.
