I live in the most beautiful part of Cape Town. Having used airbnb to select accommodation for myself on travels we've decided we should also offer our accommodation on this website.
During your stay
The Mountain House is very private. We like to meet our guests and make sure they've settled in but leave them in the comfort that they can call on us if necessary in our home next door.
