Okay, I stayed here months ago and still have it on my to do list to join tripadvisor and write a review. And I have still not forgotten until I check this one off---why? because this place is top notch. Clean, sophisticated, friendly and like home. You can't beat the rooms, the really wonderful guests and the sincere effort by Julian to make you feel comfortable. It's just a nice starting point for an adventure in Cape Town. Plenty of safe parking on the street and, gee, the guy will even cook dinner for you....he charges, of course, but not much and you get the feeling as you chill out over a pasta dish that your own apartment was transported to this gem of a place. Oh yeah, when your done, if you're staying on the second floor, try having a bath on veranda outside watching Table Mountain. You may think you're living a dream.
