The lodge is hosted by a warm, friendly family and is situated in a quiet, peaceful, tranquil and relaxing area. The units are equipped with everything you need and is serviced weekly which is a great perk for working professionals. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend visiting. 👌😊

My husband and I went down for the Cape Argus cycle tour. I love Cape Town and would love to have a view of the mountain, or the sea or the lights. The lodge is situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Gardens and beautiful houses.
