Sunny and peaceful garden cottage in central Cape Town with own patio and access. Located in a green leafy high-end neighbourhood with beautiful mountain views yet walking distance to shops and restaurants. Shared use of salt water swimming pool.

The space

Our guest cottage consists of a bedroom (kingsize bed), a living room (kitchen corner (hotplates, kettle and fridge) and sofa bed) and a bathroom (shower, basin and toilet). Whereas the kitchen corner has the basics for heating up food and making breakfast, we recommend that guests enjoy the lovely neighborhood restaurants five minutes walk away. This cottage is not suitable for full self catering.

The 45sqm space is perfect for a couple or individual traveller but can easily accommodate a young family. The access to the bathroom is through the bedroom.

The cottage is surrounded by our vegetable garden and indigenous flowers. It has its own sunny private patio with a view of Signal Hill perfect for coffee in the morning. The salt water swimming pool in front of our property offers an ideal spot to sunbathe or cool down after a day of sightseeing. Please note that the pool area is in use between 9am and 4pm.

We have two young children so the space is very family friendly and we have a shaded astroturf area with lots of toys to keep the little ones occupied. The cottage is located in the back garden of our house but is freestanding and can be accessed independently.

We have a high speed internet connection with Wifi throughout the property to help you stay connected.

We look forward to hosting you.

Guest access

Apart from the cottage guests have access to the swimming pool and garden with play area.

Fantastic space in a beautiful, quiet location but within walking distance to trendy restaurants and bars. Marianna was very welcoming and her home and garden are stunning. Great to have a small, well kitted out kitchen so that we could enjoy a morning coffee and a few meals in, during our time in Cape Town. This is the second time we've stayed here and we would love to come back again! Thanks!

Marianna's guest house was well-appointed, light, and spotless. She is a great hostess, and the location had incredible views of Lion's Head. Great stay.

It is situated on a grand architectural street bursting with colourful trees and plants, minutes away from cool restaurants and shops. It is a lovely safe area. It was the perfect place for us to unwind and discover more about Cape Town. The apartment is clean and comfortable with interesting collected pieces and was big enough for 2 adults and a toddler. It sits behind Marianna's home in her sheltered leafy garden and we were kindly offered to use the pool in their front garden. A perfect stay in such a beautiful city!

We had a very comfortable stay at Marianna's cottage. Both Marianna and her husband were very welcoming and made sure we have a nice stay. We appreciate the complimentary bottle of wine and the recommendations for things to do from the host :). The house was in a very central (5 mins walk from kloof Street) and yet quiet residential area overlooking the table mountain. We didn't get much time to interact with Marianna but we recommend her place for its location and hospitality.
