Joan and her daughter were wonderful hosts. They were very accommodating of our late check in and very communicative without ever being intrusive. The place is lovely- even more so than in the photos, and there is a bit of a view of the mountain from the garden.

Our stay here was absolutely lovely! The grounds were beautiful and spacious along with the apartment itself. Joan was an excellent host providing more hospitality than I could have expected. If I make it back to Cape Town I'll look to stay here again!

We had a really great time in the house. It looks better than on the photos and it is really spacious and quiet (with lots of nice places to eat nearby). Would definitely come back if I visit Cape Town again!

Fantastic location: close to the centre, but peaceful. Joan is a great host and makes you feel like home. The flat is big and has everything you might need, plus a cute little garden only for you. And it is part of a beautiful old house.
