A unique town house located in the trendy & culturally rich Bo Kaap. A spacious, creative & homely double story house with an en suite bedroom that comfortably sleeps 2. Less than a minutes walk to Long, Bree & Kloofs streets. A city gem!
This beautiful and historical Cape Malay cottage has been recently renovated by the current owners. As always the decorating phase is on going so expect to see changes when you arrive or witness them taking place during your stay. The eclectic interior is comfy, homely and extremely spacious. It's central location is unrivalled and you can easily and safely access all Cape Town's best spots by foot within minutes. It is also close to most MyCiti Bus stops which allows you easy access to Camps Bay (15 mins), the Waterfront (10 mins) etc. A great central base to really feel the drum of the city.
The bed in the en suite room is an extra length California King (it's huge) with an extremely comfortable orthopaedic mattress.
The room is fully equipped with clean linen (sheets, feather pillows and duvet), towels, a fan (for the summer), basic toiletries (toilet paper and hand soap) and has a large built in cupboard.
There is a cleaner once or twice a week who can do laundry for you as well as change the bed linen (for longer stays). There are also laundry facilities in the house should you wish to do your own laundry.
The house has a beautiful and fully equipped kitchen where you can cook and entertain to your hearts content. The spacious living area is yours to relax or socialise in as you wish.
There is speedy uncapped wifi throughout the house.
The house is accessed directly from the street and even though the area is very safe there is an alarm response system as well as extra secure entrances.
We have a very large second bedroom upstairs that shares a bathroom with us - if you are two people traveling together and would like your own room this could be attractive for you. Search for 'Large Room in spacious house' on Airbnb. We may also sometimes have friends staying so there may be more than just us in the house at times - rest assured our friends are all awesome :)
The house has a total of 3 bedrooms - two of which are upstairs where Wesley and Olivia stay. Your bedroom is the only one on the ground level giving you a certain sense of privacy or your 'own corner' of the house so to speak. We are out often, we entertain often and we also just relax at home often. We're both busy working young professionals so we are occupied through out the day. We will gladly offer as little or as much local advice as you might like.
Parking - there is only street parking outside the house. Most properties on the street are offices so during office hours you might not get a parking spot right out side the house but after 5 there is plenty of parking space. Cape Town does have a reputation for windows being smashed if you leave anything on display in the car - if you don't you should be totally fine but obviously we can't guarantee anything. Parking is at your own risk :)
No outside guests allowed to stay over unless previously arranged or discussed.
Clean up after yourself in public areas (lounge and kitchen).
And most importantly - have the most enjoyable stay in Cape Town :)

Olivia and Wes are a warm, friendly and hospitable couple with a wealth of knowledge of the local area and are sure to make your stay absolutely unique and enjoyable but at the same time giving you all the space and privacy you might need.
