I had a one night stay at Tessa’s before I went to my hotel. I wish I could have stayed longer it’s was so cozy and relaxing! She was very responsive and hospitable! The place was charming with the backyard gardens!

It was a pleasure to host Kia - she was the "perfect" guest - independent, a great communicator, aware of her surroundings and very appreciative of everything we offered. I'm sorry she only had one night with us but am sure the rest of her stay in Cape Town will be wonderful.

This was our second visit to Tessa's cottage. As the previous visit, the cottage is comfortable and perfectly set up for our small family, which now includes a baby. Tessa was very accommodating to ensure that our visit was comfortable and check-in and out was easy. The small tou…

Eric and Mareike were such a breath of fresh air!! They arrived from the airport a little frazzled from having to drive on the "wrong side of the rode" but found their way to us from the airport! They were so appreciative of everything we offered and understood my recommendations about safety while moving around as tourists. I was sad they only had two nights with us but am sure they will return if they ever decide to come back to Cape Town. Spud and Milo loved having them and I hope they have a wonderful rest of their trip.

The accommodation is exactly as described - gorgeous! It is a very comfortable and beautifully decorated small cottage situated in the corner of a tranquil garden. We found the location ideal, away from the noise and congestion of the city but within easy reach of all the sites…

Steve and Chris were an absolute pleasure to have to stay at Hillingdale. It was their first time in Cape Town and they took no time at all in taking off to explore the many tourist spots around the city. Appreciative, warm, very easy to communicate with and interested in everything around them - they were wonderful guests. They understood and totally respected our water crisis and were vigilant in their usage of it without it hampering the enjoyment of their stay. We'd love to have them back to stay anytime.

Our family have lived in this beautiful home for 25 years and seen the garden mature into a beautiful tranquil space. There's plenty of space for all our guests and our friendly dogs. We look forward to meeting you.
