It had just been remodeled in Modern African eclectic style and was lovely. It really felt like a home away from home. And we did make ourselves at home in the comfy living room with a cozy fire going all the time. The location is great. It’s easy to walk down Kloof St. And, it’s not far from Table Mountain. We took cabs every once and while on our way back to the house, because they were cheap and there is a bit of an uphill climb on the way back.
The rooms were quite roomier and comfortable. They even have an apartment available if you need more room. The pool was being renovated when we were there, but it was still lovely to sit outside in the evening with a glass of wine and enjoy a quite little oasis in the city.
The staff was so friendly and helpful. Carol & Dene couldn’t have been nicer and truly took care of us. Oh my, but the breakfasts were magnificent and filling! English Scramble, omelets, pancakes, waffles. Thank goodness we stayed for five days so that we could try all the choices.
You must stay here if you go to Cape Town!
