We called Andy and Zoe at the last minute as the accommodation we had originally booked was not what we had expected and we wanted to find something else. They had had guests and turned around the room for us especially. We were so grateful!
We couldn't have asked for more friendly, open and considerate hosts. Thank you so much for your hospitality and for being so welcoming- especially with our six month old son. The room was wonderful and offered everything we needed. We asked for an extra plate and they were so obliging. We felt very welcome and the fridge was stocked with all the essentials & more. It was very refreshing to be there after seeing the other accommodation Greyton was offering.
We especially loved the scenery, (email hidden) (particularly with our son) as well as having their horse, Star , close by during the day. It was a wonderful experience and we were sad to have to leave.
Andy and Zoe couldn't do enough to help us. We can highly recommend them and their clean and comfortable accommodation. Thank you again, Andy and Zoe, and we hope to see you again soon.
It was great to stay with Zoe&Andy. They are very helpfull and you can ask them for anything. The room is nice and fits for two people. It was clean and the room had everything you would need. The way from the apartement to the city isn't very long and easily to do by car. I would stay again at Zoe's and Andy's house.
We booked at very short notice and within the hour Zoe had confirmed our booking for the next day. We spent 3 nights in the delightful room with en suite and AWESOME courtyard. Andy was away so unfortunately couldn't met him but Zoe really sets the bar high for other hosts. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Close to all amenities. Highly recommended.

We are a mature Australian couple and recently stayed at Bougain Villas in Century City Cape Town with Zoe and Andy for 5 nights after completing a 27 day overland camping trip from Victoria Falls to Cape Town, so by the time we arrived we were ready for some comforts of home, which was definitely met. Andy was really welcoming and helpful and once we were savvy with the set-up we got on with seeing all the wonderful sites Cape Town had to offer. As advertised, it was easy walking to Century City Shopping Complex along the canal walk and we felt very safe in doing so that first night and thereafter. The villas are also just off the N1 from Cape Town heading to Paarl so we found our way around really easily. It was nice to have our own privacy but if need be we just had to either call or knock on Zoe & Andy's front door. The free 1 Gg Wifi was also fantastic and enabled us to research future travel arrangements. We would definitely recommend anyone thinking of staying with Zoe and Andy to go for it - you won't regret this choice. Our farewell coffee and chat was just lovely to and we really enjoyed their company and advice, not to mention their offer of assistance if required on the rest of our time travelling SA over the next 3 weeks. Thanks Zoe and Andy for a memorable and safe environment for us to enjoy your home and Cape Town.
This really was a great place to stay! The location is safe and secure, close to the Canal Walk centre, and is quiet.
The unit is very well appointed, spotlessly clean, and has everything one needs for a comfortable stay.
Andy and Zoe are the perfect hosts. They were flexible, very helpful, and so friendly! We will be back, and recommend this to anyone wanting to visit Cape Town.
I'm currently petitioning Airbnb to add a sixth star just so I can accurately rate the quality of my stays here. :-) This time I went on an epic hike and photo safari with Andy up Table Mountain and around the Apostles for the better part of a day. Great time with a competent guide and ended up with several gallery wrap quality shots to remember my adventure there. Thank you Andy & Zoe for your warm hospitality! I'll be back!
My partner and I had the most wonderful time staying at Zoe & Andy's place! WE LOVE THIS PLACE! We stayed for 4 nights and Andy was so gracious to meet us at 4am when our (website hidden) flight from Joburg was delayed for overbooking & technical reasons - a true champ! He and Zoe had us over for espresso the next morning and every suggestion they made to us about what we should do (vineyards, beaches, hangouts, restaurants, etc) and how to get to those places were SPOT ON! They also saved us from wasting time standing in line for the more touristy attractions; we'll do those another time. Their place is conveniently located to EVERYTHING in CPT (it is just off the N1) and it was nice to see areas of town we probably wouldn't have seen if we had stayed downtown (mainly Century City, Canal Walk, and Intaka Island). The room was excellent and so perfect for us after a tight crammed stay in Johannesburg a few days prior. The private access to the room from the driveway was great and the backyard hangout space was divine. Andy and Zoe were excellent hosts and they are both such interesting people - such diverse backgrounds, interests, and experiences. They have inspired us to live our lives to the fullest and invest well as they do and to not take anything for granted! We will definitely rent this room again and suggest it to any and everyone we know who comes to Cape Town. We really had such a great trip to Cape Town mainly because of Andy & Zoe's hospitality and great knowledge of the area. We hope to stay friends with them for a long time and to have them come and stay with us in Accra, Ghana some time! And we will definitely take Andy up on his offer to do a Table Mountain climb together on our next trip as well! We have been inspired to try Airbnb for one of the rooms in our house in Accra, Ghana because of this wonderful experience!
Response from Zoe & Andy:
Thank you Lizzy and Kobby for your extra special review and your very kind words. You're such positive and energetic people........and awesome friends, x
Zoe & Andy were extremely helpful and friendly people! They were very accommodating and the room is exceedingly nice and has everything you would need for a stay in Cape Town (sheets, towels, fan, etc.) The location is perfect as well, very safe and close to lots of beautiful walks.
We stayed 11 nights at this clean and calm place and it was an outstanding exerience. It's easy to find from the int. airport (just a 20min drive) and a top quality location for meeting the beautiful city Capetown.
You will get your own room incl. private entrance, bathroom with shower/bath, a big wardrobe, tv, fridge, kingsize bed, etc. and as much privacy as you want. However, if you need some assistance for your excursions or just want to have a quick chat, Andy and Zoë are quite easy accessible and very well-informed about capetown (and Scotland ;-)).
We've done a lot of excursions during our trip (including Table Mountain, Lions Head, Cape Point, Shark Diving, Blouberg, Stellenbosch, Paragliding, etc.) and it was very easy to get to those places from Century City (where the accomodation is located).
So if you're planning to visit CPT and the surrounding area this safe place is highly recommended.
Tip1: If you want to park at V&A Waterfront, parking at the Clocktower is just R10/day.
Tip2: If you have to upload/download big data during your stay and need more than 1GB internet (and also on the go), you can get a prepaid sim-card (e.g. Cell C 1GB for ~160Rand) at the Canal Walk Shopping Mall easily.
Tip3: If you want to hike up to Table Mountain and/or Lion's Head, just ask Andy, he knows almost all available trails and will guide you ;-)
