Newly renovated house in the centre of trendy Observatory on a quiet street one block from the bars and restaurants of Lower Main Road and close to the airport and city centre with secure off street parking for a small car.

Two large bedrooms with queen-size beds, and two full modern bathrooms: one en-suite.

Large, sunny living room with dining area, separate fully equipped dining kitchen and garden with table, sun loungers and braai.

Unlimited high-speed fibre wifi, smart TV and netflix.

The space
Our house is a classic Victorian house which we have recently renovated. It is comfortable, clean and secure with big windows and great sunlight. Each bedroom has plenty of storage and the living room has a large comfy sofa with smart TV, fast internet and netflix provided. The house is spacious (160 m2), making it perfect for a small group.

We have a sun trap garden with table and chairs, braai (BBQ) and sun loungers as well as a washing machine and fully equipped kitchen including tea, coffee and basic cooking provisions (oil, salt, pepper etc). A gas heater and blankets are provided for the chilly Cape Town winters. Your own secure (gated) parking spot for one small car is available off-street at the front of the house.

We have a camp cot and baby bath available if you have small children.

Where you’ll be

Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

Observatory is one of the best neighborhoods in Cape Town: eclectic, buzzy and diverse. It is your perfect base for exploring the city, only 15 minutes drive from the airport and 10 minutes into the centre of town. Lower Main road is the hub of activity with a great range of bars, restaurants and shops. Close by is the up-and-coming area of Woodstock with the Old Biscuit Mill and design shops as well as the University of Cape Town and Groote Schuur hospital.

I am based in Edinburgh and my husband is from Cape Town. I have used airbnb all over the world and have stayed in some amazing places. We also host guests at our newly renovated house in Cape Town through airbnb when we are not around. As a guest I am quiet and clean and like to pack a lot into a trip so you will barely know I am there. As a host, you will have the place to yourself but we are happy to share advice and tips and have a network of friends and family around to help.
