Thanks Jenni and Rob for a great 8 days.
While situated in suburbs it was still secluded enough to give us a great place to just lie back and relax.
Apart from the occasional phone call or visit we never saw Rob or Jenni, so there was no intrusion what so ever and were left to our own device.
The rooms where lovely apart from a few cosmetic things (not putting in a description of the rooms, because they are exactly as described on their website). I say rooms because we had 2. Our first was the Garden room, but unfortunately the very last night of our stay, the room was already booked, but Jenni suggested moving us to one of the other suites, which was fine by us. As an inconvenience (not that it was) for doing this we were given the suite for that night free of charge. Yip, free for the inconvenience, very few places would do that, and this sums how Jenni and Rob are as people and what sort of holiday they provide you, absolutely fantastic.
Small things that count : During our stay we had postcards that needed to be posted and laundry that needed doing, all of which Jenni arranged to be done. She collected and delivered them back to us, so we didn’t have to worry about that at all, we could just set off at dawn to do our tourist thing and not worry about.
We didn’t get to use the pool, as it was just a little bit to cold to use it in the evening or early morning and we weren’t around during the day if it happened to be sunny outdoors, but did look very inviting all the same.
The place is a short drive from Cape Town which we preferred, so weren’t near the city, and is also very close when going off to Cape Point, Simons Town (where you can see whales and we did) Boulders, Chapmans peak, World of Birds, Wine Estates, go walking on the mountain , and that’s all within 20min from where they are situated. There is a shopping mall 5 miniutes away where you can either eat out or do your own shopping and cook something back at the suite.
In a previous reviews someone complained about dogs barking, which as it’s in the suburbs you will get, but we didn’t have any of that in the evening during our stay, we did hear it during the day, but then during the day, who cares.
They also complained about steep steps, been built on a hillside you will get steep steps, but we didn’t find this any different to some of the places we have stayed at in Spain, so don’t see what the problem was.
All in all in it was a fantastic stay and couldn't thank Jenni enough for it..
