Located in the leafy upmarket suburb of Borrowdale, Harare, this spacious 1 bedroom cottage is fully self-contained with cooking facilities. Nestled in the grounds of a larger house, with shared access to the swimming pool (subject to water availability) and large garden. Privacy is assured, with the cottage located some distance from the main house and a car spot available. Fully furnished with separate kitchen, lounge, bedroom, bathroom, verandah and patio. Linen and cleaning provided. Ron and Rena, your friendly Scottish hosts, will make your stay comfortable, and can suggest local restaurants and places to visit and arrange transfers to and from the airport and within Harare with prior notice. Cable access can be arranged with advance notice for longer term stays. Rates negotiable for longer term guests.
Wonderful stay in a very roomy garden cottage with all the necessary amenities. Great welcome and hosting by Ron and Rena (thanks for the chat about life in Zimbabwe and the beer).
I enjoyed staying with Rena (her husband was in South Africa). She was a wonderful and caring host. The cottage is comfortable and has everything one needs and is very private. The area is very nice and close to an upmarket shopping center with good restaurants and supermarkets. All together I can only recommend this place with this friendly and relaxed atmosphere. My best regards, Paula
Thank you Ron and Rena. Your Hospitality was the best ever. You made me feel like I was home again, the days when everything was done for me , the cleaning and the washing, I can certainly get used to that. I will stay no place else but your place on my future visits. 100% Approval and I would recommend your place to everyone visiting Harare.
Ich fühlte mich bei Ron & Rena sehr wohl. Sie waren sehr aufmerksame Gastgeber, die die Privatsphäre respektierten.
Da ich kein eigenes Auto hatte, übernahm Ron für den Job des Taxifahrers. Das war nötig, da nur ein Restaurant und eine kleine Einkaufsmöglichkeit zu Fuss erreichbar waren und Harare sehr weitläufig ist.
I enjoyed my stay at Borrowdale Cottage: nice place, friendly hosts and good value for money. Hope to come back!
Ron and Rene are really wonderful hosts. They did everything to ensure our stay was pleasant. The cottage is beautiful, clean, safe and has separate access to the main house so you really feel privacy. Ron and Rene will even organise regular cleaning and washing, ironing of cloths for a small fee. Borrowdale is a beautiful suburb of Harare and much nicer than downtown. The best shopping area, night life and restaurant area is just down the road called Sam Levies. Certainly a great place to stay in Harare.
Ron and Rena are Scottish immigrants to Zimbabwe, and have been living in Harare for the best part of 30 years. They enjoy cooking, travel, wine and spending time with friends and family.
