We had the best stay ever in Leonette and Rudi's home. From beginning to end communication was very easy and Leonette is super organised, very accommodating and most of all very welcoming. The house was squeaky clean, well maintained, tastefully decorated, and well equipped. I loved the combination of old and new. The welcome basket added such a nice touch and the spoils made me visit the bakery where they were sourced from. There is no TV, but excellent wifi, a state of the art dishwasher, and a Nespresso machine. It was perfect for us and I would highly recommend staying in this home.

We were a large group and this was the perfect place for us. Leonette and Rudi's place gave us all enough space but was also homely. Having internet access was fantastic! I would recommend this spot to anyone needing to be close to all amenities, the beach and the university.

We stayed at Leonette and Rudi's house for the Ironman in PE. The first thing to note is that this is their actual home and not a second property bought to rent out. So expect that the house reflects that a family lives there on a permanent basis (it didn't impact on us but may be important to some - but does have the bonus of the amenities of an actual home e.g. Braai, comfortable). This being the case we were made to feel very welcome before they left and they truly opened their house to us before leaving on holiday; and the treat basket they left was a nice surprise. The house was really clean and we could appreciate the effort made to prepare for our arrival. The house is close to the beach (less than 1km) in a residential neighborhood of PE. Being PE nothing is too far, but the closest landmark is the boardwalk complex which about 1.5kms away. For Ironman the house is well placed, it is not walking distance to the registration etc but it is less than 5 min drive, even on race morning with traffic etc. Leonette and Rudi were really accommodating with any nuances in our plans and were willing to be flexible with check in times etc. Thank you guys for having us and sharing your home with us, I would recommend a stay here (particularly for Ironman weekend).
