House Rules
Pets Allowed: No
Smoking Allowed: No
Kid Friendly: Yes
Note: We have two mature, friendly Labrador x dogs and 2 cats. They are discouraged from entering the cottages as some guests are not fond of animals and are no trouble to our guests. We recommend that you have a drink on the step in the pool in the evening in the summer after work/touring. Highly recommended! Have fun - ask for our help as needed and make this a wonderful trip to Cape Town.

Ailsworth cottage is in an old residential area of Cape Town, quiet yet central enough to get about easily. It is beautifully equipped, and everything seems to have been thought of, even a heated under blanket and radiator should one be unlucky with the weather....More

We booked this place when we ran the Two Oceans half marathon and we loved it. Conveniently located. Uber drivers found it easy to pick up and drop off. Our host was lovely and the facilities were simple and clean!

About the neighborhood
Pinelands is a 'Garden City' established in the early 1940's on Uitvlugt Forest land, based on the progressive principles of Ebenezer Howard, who's work lead to the creation of similar Garden Cities in the UK. It's characterised by large plots, gracious houses - many of which have thatched roofs; wide roads and pavements and many parks and play areas. There are running routes, walking & sports areas. Ailsworth house is next to two large sportsfields which are used by the cricket, hockey & running clubs and local community. It is a tranquil, pretty base from which to enjoy your time in Cape Town.
Getting around
Taxis & Ubers are an inexpensive option for getting round the city from Pinelands. An Uber fare into the City costs R100 - R120 depending on the time of day (early hours of the morning is more than this). There is no public transport covering the city of Cape Town. A modern city-wide bus service is in the process of being built. About 50% of our guests hire cars and the rest use Taxi's and Ubers, with many doing a combination of the two. Cape Town is an easy city to drive in and guests from Europe and the USA get to grips with rental cars very fast. Andrew has a passenger carrying licence and we are able to offer airport transfers - please contact us for prices and arrangements.
