Stayed for one night on a recent business trip to Cape Town and found this cottage very cosy and clean. One small thing that may have enhanced my stay would have been a biscuit or a rusk to go with my morning coffee. Otherwise the place is really good.

Stayed recently as a single, got upgraded from Cottage 3 to Cottage 1, very comfortable worked out perfectly. Walked to the Kelvin Grove and Stormers game. Squirrels way quieter than Keurbooms road and opposite the park. Garaged off street parking. Ideal for settling or visiting kids at university. Will be back

Highly recommended. This was our second stay at Squirrel's Way. Once again everything was superb. The location, the facilities, and especially the care that is given to maintaining the property and looking after the guests needs. We felt very much at home, safe and well looked after.

We stayed in 2 cottages that were adjoining which was perfect for our needs. 4 adults and 2 children (4 and 2) meant our childless friends could sneak away and get some quiet and peace and still be close. We loved the location of Squirrels Way, the fact that it had very good security, off-street parking, a heated pool for... More

These cottages are spacious, immaculately clean, great location with a stunning view of the mountain. They have a very good security system with off street parking and are extremely well managed. We had a lovely two week stay and hopefully will be able to make a return visit. Can highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.

Squirrel's Way Cottage is made up of three units. Two of these face onto a nice very clean little swimming pool and the third (Unit 3) is round the back (or really the front as it is next to the main road). Unfortunately we were in Unit 3 but this only slightly detracted from our stay there. The unit has... More
