The house is beautiful, Maureen used to be in interiors and it shows! The house is eclectic, welcoming and very charming. My room was large, clean and very comfortable. Crisp white sheets and big plump pillow are just the thing after a day trecking around the wineries. The food is out of this world and very plentiful - I challenge you to go hungry with Maureen cooking. Located in a great and safe part of town you are close to lovely restruants and groovy cafes, you will be walking distance to teh V&A Waterfront. Maureen is happy to organise your tours, taxis and gives the BEST shopping advice.
Exceptional value for money - don't miss out on this Cape Town diamond!!
