This was serendipity at its best. We picked this B&B based on TA's recommendations and the hook was the non-profit organization they support in the township of Kayelitsha. We had been in SA before but this was our first trip to Cape Town.
This was absolutely unquestionably the best place to stay, centrally located to all points of interest yet secluded in a quiet sea side village with quaint shops and restaurants to explore, and within walking distance to a nice beach. We spent 10 days in the master suite and could have spent 10 more. The room was spotless, roomy and beautiful. But yet the best was the care given to us by Yoliswa and Nadeem, who fed both our stomachs and our minds, even our souls.
From Nadeem we learned so much about the country's history and places to visit. He took us on a tour of Kayelitsha on Thanksgiving Day (US) that will always stay with us as one of our most memorable. We feel we made new friends and hope to stay in touch with them, hoping to be able to visit again this beautiful place with a beautiful mission run by beautiful people. Nadeem and Yoliswa, you opened our hearts to South Africa (and we miss your breakfasts!).
