Well located close to Somerset West, Cape Town, airport and The Strand. Amazing views of the Helderburg and great opportunity for a brisk evening walk up the slopes of the mountain to be rewarded with wonderful views over False Bay and surrounding mountains. Everything you need in the apartments so great for Self Catering. Very welcoming, helpful and knowledgable hosts.
Watch out for the spiders (if you leave the garden windows open). A bit scary, but easily removed with a broom! Don't let this put you off (character forming!).
If you need to work - wireless internet connectivity (good signal) is provided free of charge.

Rain spiders (or proper term being the African Huntsman Spider) appears extremely scary to those who do not like spiders, but they are actually not aggressive and will not bite unless they feel threatened or provoked but are certainly not deadly to humans. They get their name from fear of the rain and seek shelter a day or two before a rain shower – unfortunately on occasions, in one or other guest room where the windows have been left open and then stay in a corner on the ceiling.

I know they are not the most pleasant of slights especially when you climb into bed at night and look up the ceiling and there staring back at you is this rather large spider – enough to put anyone off their sleep, but please do not kill them as they are considered beneficial because they feed on insects. So if summons by a guests because of this looming threat inside there room I simply take a broom, nudge them to the floor where they will curl up into a little ball and then gently sweep them outside – away from harms way.

Prevention. Unfortunately you will find them in most places where you stay but simply : shut your windows prior to a rain storm and you will have an unthreatened and peaceful nights sleep.

Gary and miriam are knowledgeable freindly hosts and made our stay very enjoyable. We can't recommend them highly enough. Rooms were comfortable, position excellent, and in it's way as good as the Lord Charles down the road.
