Incredible house full of beautiful art and furniture with wonderful views from every window. We watched a pod of dolphins swim past from our bed in the morning. Lovely outside area with pool and jacuzzi. Well stocked kitchen - and just a short walk from shops and restaurants in Kalk Bay if you don't feel like cooking. Thank you for a really magical weekend.

The Rafters has been an amazing home to explore Cape Town during our first visit to South Africa. Kalk bay is a fantastic location to enjoy tidal pools, shops, and lovely places to eat and hang out up and down Main Street. I have loved the walkability of the location so that we are not always dependent upon the car. Our host, Nicci, has always been responsive and accommodating to our needs. Thank you for an amazing stay!
