Nestled between Table Mountain and Lion's Head, this is the most unique location in Cape Town! Stroll out of the door and hike up Lions Head or Table Mountain, or hop on the bus to be in the city centre in 5 mins. Hit legendary Long St, or the new hip kid on the block Bree St. Vibey Kloof Street is just down the hill, with it's trendy eateries, bars and shops. A few minutes the other way and you are in Camps Bay enjoying cocktails while admiring the finest of white sandy beaches.
Where else can you stay in the middle of the city where you can walk straight up Lion's Head or Table Mountain?! It feels like you are in the country, but you are minutes from the city centre! Your room is newly renovated, but the rest of the house has a basic farmhouse feeling, built in the 60's as a forester ranger's house. Officially, it is part of Table Mountain National Reserve.
Guests have access to their bedroom from the front door, which we hardly ever use. They can also use the lounge and kitchen. There is a private bathroom with bath and toilet, but it does not have a shower. Guests may use the shower in the main en-suite bedroom (we are very chilled about this).
There is a lovely garden with fantastic views of Table Mountain and a secluded, quiet BBQ area which guests are welcome to share with us. Sometimes we might BBQ and invite you to join, or you can have it all to yourself!
Interaction with guests
Myself and another person share the house, so we will be on hand to help with any questions you have or advice you need throughout your stay. If you want to be private, we'll leave you alone. If you want to socialise with us, we'll be happy to!
Other things to note
We don't have TV, but there is a media player and monitor in your room. We can supply you with movies or documentaries, as you wish.
We smoke too, but not in the house.
We're relaxed, professional housemates, both in the Web IT industry. Marc works from home and Leon works at Media24. We have two friendly Jack Russells, Max and Roxy. We like the outdoors and have an excellent back garden for BBQ's. We're not going to fuzz over you and will leave you alone as much as you want, but if you want to eat or BBQ with us, you're more than welcome! Our garden is so big that you can have your privacy if you want. The great MyCiti bus service has a stop, half-a-minute's walk from our front gate.
