It is equipped with TV (18 Dstv satellite channels), it offers wifi, has a mosquito net, a fan, a safe and it is connected to 24 hr security alarm. The bedroom has a king size bed.

We do offer a camp cot on request. The cottage is not serviced, but we happily wash your bed linen and towels on request! Please note that no inside parking can be offered but parking on the road has never been a problem.

Guest access

Guests have access to a small garden which they share with the guests in the other cottage.

Interaction with guests

As the cottages are on the same property as our house, we will be available for questions and helping organizing tours etc. Nevertheless the areas are separated by a gate so the dogs will not get over to your side ever. We do share the access gate to the property, which is situated on the driveway of the cottage. Our car is parked outside the cottage. We also speak German.

The neighbourhood

The Cottage is situated in the very nice and green suburb of Glenwood. The perfect breakfast venue is a little eco café about 80m down the road from us. There you will also find a Pizza as well as a Chinese take away, a washing salon and a small corner shop. A big shopping mall and a whole road full of cafes and restaurants is 800m down the road from us and it is safe to walk there at day time. University as well as medical school are in walking distance, the beach, city centre and the ICC are each 10min drive from us. Further more you will find an art gallery, a yoga place, a spa, 3 different gyms, a tennis court and a big park with jogging path and outdoor gym all in close proximity and safe to walk during the day.

Cottage was clean and well appointed, and exactly as described. Appreciated the complimentary coffee, tea, sugar, etc. that was left for us by Katja. We stayed over the December period and the area was quiet. Parked our car outside on the road with no issues. Katja was quick to help with any issues. Would definitely stay there again in the future. Ps. If you plan on staying a long period of time, i.e. 1 month+, and you like to watch TV then I would advise you to approach Katja beforehand about possibly getting the available DSTV bouquet in the cottage upgraded to one with more channels. The available one is very basic with few English channels available, and mainly local language channels.

We had a very pleasant experience staying with Katja. They were very accommodating in that I could park my car inside the yard - they arranged their vehicles so that there was enough space. The welcoming was friendly and the departure satisfying. I will consider staying at Katja's again in future.

Katja was wonderfully responsive and made me feel safe as a woman travelling alone to south africa. The cottage is just what you need for a short stay or even longer stay , very well equipped, beautifully clean. it opens onto a small parking yard so there is no outdoor space. bring some earplugs as local dogs bark at night. I used mozzie taxi's to move around between city and cottage. Katja is a very kind and top notch host. thanks so much Katja!
