I am an artist and work from home. I live on the mountain-side in Muizenberg at the end of a cul de sac. The house and guest cottage overlook False Bay sea. Living here is wonderful, as there is the mountain immediately behind and the sea in front - so close to nature and yet galleries, music concerts, theater plays and shopping centers are so easily accessible. There are so many outdoor activities to do here (cycling, surfing, diving, hiking, canoeing...) but I love to go bird watching and have even been out to sea on a Pelagic trip to see the Albatross. Mostly I just enjoy going for walks along the beach and for a treat spend the day out at Cape Point Nature Reserve. There is so much Cape Town has to offer and I would be delighted to introduce our guests to what would possibly be of interest to them.
