Longboat Lodge is simple budget accommodation intended for people who want to explore False Bay (30+ minutes from Cape Town CBD). 3 minutes to Longbeach Mall and very convenient for Fish Hoek, Kommetjie and Simonstown - great if you're coming to one of the big wedding venues. The house is situated in Milkwood Park, a small family suburb, There are no frills but everything you need including WIFI and braai area. NB No oven only microwave and hot plate.
Room 1 is a big studio room, with a tiny separate kitchenette and a shower & loo.
Room 2 is a large bedroom with a full bath ensuite. Door to outside back deck.
Room 3 is a large room with shower and loo. Door to outside back deck.
Room 4 is the smallest size with an open plan bath and loo.
All the rooms have double beds with lovely brand new linen.
If the studio room is not available (it is sometimes used by family) then we have two upstairs rooms also with their own shower and loo facilities. One with a double bed and one with bunk beds and a divan.
The kitchenette is simple but equipped with everything you need for 8 people. NB There is no oven, just a hotplate and microwave.
The breakfast area looks onto the back deck.
The deck is an enclosed part of the garden, equipped with a braai and 2 tables.
NB. If room 1 is separately booked, we reserve the right to allocate the two upstairs rooms to children but will communicate this at the time.
NB. The house is divided into two sections. You'll have the run of the main house. There are neighbours with a small child in a flatlet to the side of the house (this is an adjoining space with just a thin wall so you may get some noise) and two full-time staff/tenants in a cottage at the back. Your section is separate with its own entrance, parking for two cars and back deck. There's no remote access gates or anything like that but this is a quiet suburb with a good neighbourhood watch. (There are children and three dogs - two small and one medium-sized - living in the cottage next door. You might hear them but usually not for long.)
We are very familiar with the area and can point you in the direction of great beaches, the best restaurants, and places to see. If you need to know about surf spots, that's a speciality :)
Longbeach Mall has all the big supermarkets, as well as wine shops, restaurants and boutiques. Parking is free in the above ground parking and there's lots of it.
Please note that the house is strictly for 8 people, including children, unless special arrangement has been made. No visitors may sleep over. This is a family neighbourhood so no noise after 10pm at the very latest please. Speed limits must be adhered to. Also note, no maid service - although we can arrange this for your account if given enough notice. Lastly, we would greatly appreciate it if you would stick to our booking hours unless a flight prohibits it - in which case it would be really appreciated if you would advise well in advance. We don't live at the house so have to drive over to let you in. Thanks very much.
Hi I'm a 50+ Creative Director and I work at an ad agency in Cape Town. I usually travel alone for business, but also with my partner or family for holidays. I like trying new restaurants, cooking at home, music (especially blues). I'm a really good guest as I'm super neat and fairly quiet. Favourite in-house pastime is just to chill with a glass of wine and a book. I have no life motto but believe in fairness in all things.
