About This Listing
Makai Lodge is a guesthouse for everyone who wants to flee from the cold wet european winter to relax in the warm and sunny Cape Town. Especially windsurfers, kitesurfers, surfer, individualists and sporty people will feel at home at Makai Lodge! With 5 double bedrooms, all with en-suit bathrooms and an appartment we are the ideal address for price-conscious travellers who prefer a cozy and friendly atmosphere to the anonymity of a hotel. Makai Lodge is situated in the calm and safe suburb Table View north-west of Cape Town. Five minutes from the lodge you will find the world famous windsurfing spots Sunset Beach and Big Bay which are great for long beach walks and taking a refreshing swim as well. Due to the location Makai Lodge offers all advantages of a metropolis without the hustle and bustle of a big city. The double rooms are located in the main house and every room has a big glassy sliding door to the garden or to the pool area.
The guests of the main house will find a modern clean kitchen for self-suplying including micro wave and washing machine (subject to charges). Besides a working room with telephone and fax is offered to the guests, also a wireless internet connection is available that our guests can use for a small weekly fee. In the wide living room our guests will find a TV with VCR/DVD and a fireside. From the lounge and the living room sliding doors guide the way to the tropical pool and the sunbath area where sunbeds are available. At the barbeque area next to the pool you can end your day with a nice south african Braai (Barbeque) and a good bottle of wine. The fully equiped appartment has a seperate entrance, a living and dining area with an open kitchen, an own bathroom and a sleeping room with TV. Board storage is possible in the large double garage. The house can be reached from the airport by taxi within 30 minutes and the transport costs about 25 Euros. We live in another second apparment that is attached to the main house. So we are always there if you have questions, problems or want to organize trips.
The price of 45 Euros is based on a double ensuite bedroom for 2 people.
Nette Gastgeber, tolle Location macht sehr viel Spaß dort zu wohnen, vielleicht manchmal etwas hellhörig !
Rick and his girlfriend are a welcoming couple, and were very friendly to chat with. We stayed with them for a great week, and the house really suits its purpose for a relaxing night. Nearby supermarkets and a good kitchen made everything convenient.
- there is no secure parking - parking is outside the property, but the area tends towards safe :)
- you share the kitchen with the other guests, who, like Rick, are mostly German, so deutsch sprechen is at an advantage :)
- washing machine costs 30 rand a load
- the house is mostly cared for by Rick's father and mother, who live on premises, and the clientele, albeit a few kite surfers, tends to a more advanced age.
All in all, a good find, especially if you kitesurf, or want a quiet/relaxing spot in a residential area, to sleep.
Super herzliche Unterkunft im schön, ruhig und sicher gelegenem Norden. Kommen gerne wieder! Bis bald
Wir wurden sehr freundlich aufgenommen. Die entspannte, fast familiäre Atmosphäre, auch unter den Gästen, hat uns gut gefallen.
Dies hat sich auch darin gezeigt, daß alle Gäste der Einladung zum gemeinschaftlichen Grillen gefolgt sind. Ein toller Abend.

About the Host, Rik
Surfing, travelling, friends and family keep me alive, fashion and graphic design keep me busy. Big City life is interesting but stresses me out after a while. Water keeps me grounded, surfing focused on what is important. In need of constant movement and change or I get bored. Mentally I am on Nusa Lembongan or at Lola's in Longstreet/Cape Town. I move back and forth between Germany, Cape Town and Bali. Together with my girlfriend I run the Streetwear / Surfbrand Faith21 and the womenswear brand 21dgrs. I spend most of my money on airplane tickets cause I hate winter. We look forward meeting you!
