We booked this place after all the positive reviews on tripadvisor. I can honestly say, they are not exaggerated. I have travelled extensively, and found this to be a very charming place with a luxurious room. Our room was comfortable, a good size, with a beautiful balcony where we had a view of the city, the water, and if we looked around, we could see Table Mountain behind us.
What makes this place even more special is the personalized service. They really want you to enjoy your stay and holidays, and will do everything you need. They booked a car for us, tickets for Table Mountain. Stewart spent time with us to go over potential itineraries in the time that we had, even after we left his place.
We felt extremely looked after, but not in an intrusive way. The breakfast was delicious, with everything very fresh, and very high quality ingredients.
The pool is not heated unless you ask for it. We didn't as we felt bad imposing just for us, seemed a waste of energy.
Would happily recommend this place to anyone visiting Cape Town. The location is in a safe suburb, and you can park on the street without a problem.
