We had a lovely stay at Pedro and Lisa's beautiful house. A very relaxing house that had everything we needed. The location was perfect for our needs and very quiet. Pedro and Lisa made sure we were comfortable and were particularly patient given our delayed late night arrival. The two cats were also very friendly. We will miss our breakfasts up on the patio with a grand view of Table Mountain in particular.
Thank you both for your above-and-beyond hospitality!
Our stay at Pedro's house was very good. The house was very charming and spacious. The two cats living there was also very friendly and adorable. We really enjoyed staying there. Lisa, Perdo's wife was very friendly, and helpful. We could not have askt for a better host.
We could not have asked for a better stay! Pedro and Lisa went above and beyond what we were expecting, giving us recommendations for local art and hand-written maps to Cape Town's best kept secrets. We quickly forgot that we had just met these two, as it truly felt like we were staying in the home of friends! At one point Pedro even gave us music lessons! That being said, our hosts were amazing at giving us privacy and were so courteous as to even ask if they could stop by to grab their vacuum cleaner.
The photos cannot capture the beauty and atmosphere of this home. There is so much character in each small detail, and (with six of us!) we were comfortable and felt as though we all had more than enough space. We particularly enjoyed all of the cozy areas outdoors; just when we thought we'd found every spot to sit down and read a good book, we'd find another beautiful garden space! The location of the house is great and the neighborhood felt very safe.We were quickly able to access the highway to the city, but the location allowed us to easily seek peace and quiet from the fast pace of downtown!
If we ever get the pleasure of visiting Cape Town again, we will certainly hope to stay at this beautiful home once more!! Thank you so much Pedro and Lisa!!!
Our stay in Cape Town thanks to Pedro and Lisa could not have been better. Both are wonderful, warm and attentive hosts, who made our stay in their beautiful old house as pleasant as possible. Pedro was always available and helpful. The house is spacious and is extremely quiet. It offers many nice relaxed seating inside and outside on the beautiful patios or on the roof terrace. The equipment of the house has satisfied our requirements fully. The decor with old and tasteful furniture is full of loving details. Having an own car is a good idea - then the way downtown or to the beaches / Cape Peninsula is easy. We left with the feeling to leave our own home and good friends. Perfect!
We were lucky to stay at Pedro's lovely home for a long weekend. Not only is the house charming, it's in a very central location. Rooms are spacious, and there are lots of outdoor areas to sit.
Pedro is an excellent host and I would recommend staying there to anyone!
We stayed in the house with our two kids who are three and seven. We were delighted with the place. We received a very warm welcome and plenty of useful advice from the hosts. The house is really comfortable and perfectly positioned for exploring the Cape and Cape Town. It is also really easy to find from the airport. The kitchen is well equipped and user friendly and the courtyard with it's built in BBQ is delightful. We would really recommend staing here if you want to be close to the city but enjoy a quiet retreat to come back to.
The house is located in a friendly neighbourhood slightly off the beaten tourist tracks of Cape Town, close to UCT (we had no noise issues with students, though). Pedro and his wife have been very responsive, accommodating and generous. The house offers plenty of space for up to 7 people (and the 2 cats). It is full of character, with large rooms and high ceilings. Furniture is matching the Victorian atmosphere of the place. Obviously, such historic buildings are maintenance-intensive. Expect a charming home rather than sleek finishes.
Thank you, Pedro, for the nice stay - we will be glad to call again!
Lovely house with a lot of character. Pedro was good fun and very accommodating . Three main bedrooms all very large and even the single room was more than enough space for me. There are two cats who are permanent residents but were absolutely no trouble. A few student houses nearby but we had no problem with noise and pedro was adamant that we told him if they got too loud so he could call them.
Overall a great experience. There are amenities nearby and it is a minute from Main Road. A car is useful though to get to cool places in town.
