Our home is bright, newly decorated and flows naturally from indoors to outdoors. It's perfect for children, with large fully fenced pool, two covered outside entertainment areas both with BBQ, playroom / family room, trampoline and garden. The living area is open-plan and stacking doors lead to the covered patio.
Tokai is a leafy suburb in Cape Town located in the middle of the Constantia winelands and surrounded by mountains. There are shops and restaurants within close walking distance.
Our unique home epitomises indoor-outdoor living. Sliding stacking doors open invitingly to patios in both the front and back gardens, which are both sheltered and inviting. The back garden is an east-facing South African indigenous garden set around a lemon tree, while the front garden has a lush lawn and an English country garden feel. Between the two gardens you can pick sun or shade any time of day!
Our home, which has gleaming oak parquet floors throughout, can comfortably sleep 6, with three large bedrooms and two bathrooms. Cot available on request.
•Bedroom 1 – king-size double bed and views of the pool. Cupboard space comprises a large chest of drawers and hang-rail. En suite bathroom with large shower, double basin vanity unit and toilet. Hair dryer, mosquito net and electric fan.
•Bedroom 2 – double bed with built-in cupboards, chest of drawers and dressing table. Hair dryer and mosquito net.
•Bedroom 3 – L-shape bunk bed, with the possibility of accommodating a third child on a pull-out bed. Built-in cupboards and a chest of drawers. Mosquito net and electric fan.
•The kitchen has all the usual mod-cons (5-burner gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, large fridge/freezer) and is open-plan, so everyone can help with the cooking!
•The family bathroom has a bath with a skylight above it, shower and toilet.
•There are 3 outdoor entertainment areas, one on the front deck, one on the back patio and one by the pool. Both the back garden and the pool have built-in braai / barbecue facilities.
There is Wi-Fi, DSTV and a hi-tech security system with cameras on the road.
We love our home and know from our own experience that it is the perfect place for a fun and restful holiday. Whether you’re reading a book on the sofa on the back patio enjoying the butterflies and birdsong, taking a dip in the sparkling pool, or enjoying a bath while gazing up through the skylight at the huge oak tree above, you can completely unwind and have a wonderful rejuvenating holiday in our home.
The entire home and garden is let, except for the self-contained work-from-home office and walk-in-wardrobe, where we will store our personal possessions.
We will not be staying on the property but will not be more than an hour or two away, and will always be available on the phone.
We would expect the guests to treat our house as if it were their own. Tokai is a quiet neighbourhood so we would ask you to be considerate of the neighbours.
