We thoroughly enjoyed the stay as a family. Helen and her family are so kind and helpful. Opening your home and personal space for complete strangers are not everyones forte. Kids obviously enjoyed all the pets and interaction. We found it very conveniently located.

it was so nice to meet the host and the young kids with warm heart as well as the detailed information I really needed. The comfortable bed was also a wonderful stuff to give me a sweet sleep right after 24 hour flight from Korea.

Helen User Profile

I'm a social anthropologist working at the University of Cape Town. Born in New Zealand, I now live in Cape Town with my partner, Charlie and our two daughters, Zara (aged 10) and Maddy (aged 8). We live in a beautiful suburb of Cape Town and enjoy taking advantage of our nearby surroundings, walking and cycling in the Table Mountain national park and swimming at the various beaches. Charlie and I have seen a lot of the world and enjoy exploring new destinations. We are very keen for our daughters to meet people from all walks of life and to learn about other languages and cultures.
