The self-made millionaire Andrew Reynolds has also stayed here. He and I would recommend this B&B to anyone. Excellent service. Well presented rooms. Very cheap local bars. Great location and amenities. Some affordable vistas or views from high up.
Vicky's daughter is very friendly. The neighbourhood kids will show you around. It will be a trip you will never forget. Fantastic. You will learn more than reading any book. With Vicky and her family, you will be safe and well cared for.
I stayed at Vicky's for a "cultural anthropology" assignment in which I wanted to learn first hand about the Xhosa culture. Before I even arrived, Vicky contacted me to ask if I would like to join her at a traditional ceremony. She arranged for my husband and I to participate in the ceremony and answered all my questions (and there were many) to help me understand the culture. She then cooked a wonderful dinner for us. Our room was also amazing considering its in the middle of Khayelitsha. It had an ensuite, television and beautiful linen.
During a month long study abroad trip to South Africa, my group stayed a Vicky's and visited the township for a night. The hospitality that we were treated with was incredible, Vicky happily welcomed 20+ students into her home with open arms. She had a tour arranged for us so we could get a more in depth and personalized view of life in the township, which was probably one of the most eye opening experiences of not only my trip, but of my life. She treated us to a delicious and filling homemade dinner when we returned Before bed we stayed up with Vicky's children and niece and learned a bit of Afrikaans, about how their school is, their way of life, and a few of the games that they like to play. Our bedrooms has 2 beds, each with plenty of blankets to keep us warm in the cool South African winter. The night was calm, quiet, and comfortable. In the morning we had a breakfast of muffins, tea and coffee. Vicky was so nice to even provide a giant fruit salad to a fellow student that had a gluten allergy. My night and Vicky's will be something I remember for the rest of my life. I absolutely plan on visiting again and staying for another night or two. Incredible experience, I recommend staying here if you want to see the true South Africa.…
We were in South Africa for the FIFA Soccer World Cup 2010 and decided to spend time a Vicky's Bed and Breakfast in the middle of the Khayelista Township. The experience was absolutely wonderful for our entire family. Our three adult children enjoyed not only the experience of staying in the Township and enjoyed listening to the music coming from the shebang just across from Vicky's. The meals she provided were very authentic and delicious. Vicky's family was also very helpful in showing us around the township and the rest of Cape Town. Highly recommended if you want to experience the life in the Townships and fully experience South Africa.
We wanted to experience South Africa, the local lifestyle and interact with the population and learn about the diversity of this country. One of adventure was staying at Vicki’s B&B in the township of Khayelitsha, the fastest growing township in Cape Town. Vicki, her husbands and daughter were fantastic, we felt welcomed in their home and they cooked great food. We enjoyed the sunset walk in the township meeting their neighbors. We learned a lot talking to them and appreciate all South Africans. An experience we will cherish! Bruce & Flo -USA
Vicki's B&B was a delight to visit in Khayelitsha. We didn't actually get to stay there but I wish I had. The hostess, Vicki's daughter, was very gracious and showed us this beautiful gem. The rooms are all furnished differently and are spotless. There are 2 rooms with their own bathrooms. Other guests there reported that the food was good. Next time I go to Capetown, I will stay there.
I didn't actually stay at Vick's B & B only visited. It was at the end of the holiday to Cape Town & had i known about it sooner i would have loved to have stayed a night here in the Township of Khayelitsha with Vicky.The photos in the reviews are very out of date & i am now posting new ones. The B & B began in one container but now is several & the inside is amazing.On our visit Vick's daughters took us on a walkabout in the Township & we also visited the kindergarten which Vicky helps fund so children can be safe while parents work. Vicky said to us that although they may be poor, they are also proud. Opposite the B & B is the Waterfront bar where a large beer & a cola cost the grand sum of 84p.
Stayed a night in Vicky’s wonderful township B&B in Khayelitsha. Far better than just oggling from a minibus ‘township tour’. Never felt safer on our holiday. Experience something that most white South Africans unfortunately never will. If you do, say “Molu Vicky, unjani!” from Geoff & Tracey.
