Katie’s place was great! Katie and Murray are super hosts! The place is clean and quiet and the location is also very good. It’s 10 mins to downtown by Uber which works great in Cape Town. The guys are always available and very helpful. I so recommend their place. You won’t regret. It’s by the way walking distance to at least 2 top rated restaurants in Cape Town. And also the view of the mountain from the bathroom is priceless:)))

Katie and Murray were very gracious and unobtrusive hosts. The room was indeed warm and sunny, especially appreciated on a few chilly Spring mornings. Magic bathroom with a classic bath and a shower that gives the illusion of being outside. Solid internet connection. Charming church bells on Sunday morning.

I totally recommend a stay at Katie's place! The home is lovely and the room and bath were terrific. The bed is very comfy, there is plenty of space, and the large desk was great to be able to work at. Katie and Murray were very accommodating and did everything to make me feel at home. I didn't walk around the neighborhood, but it seems like a nice area. Although it is not right near the waterfront, it was an inexpensive Über ride (<$5) to get there - well with it to have such a lovely place to stay. I would definitely return again next time I am in Cape Town. Thanks Katie and Murray!!!

I stayed with Katie and Murray for almost 3 months. They were extremely welcoming and made sure I had everything I needed. Obs is a great neighborhood that is safe, walkable and close to all things Cape Town has to offer. Great stay!

Perfectly located in Observatory with many options for delicious and affordable restaurants, cafes and bars which are not touristy. Accommodation contains everything you need and Katie&Murray are very helpful and friendly hosts.

I grew up in the US, spent two years in England, and have been living in Cape Town since 2010 with my South African partner. I work for a reading-for-joy campaign, and I love running, hiking and playing Ultimate Frisbee in my free time. We both love meeting people from around the world and sharing advice and recommendations about our city.
