Good value for money. Was a home away from home.

Lovely, quiet stay. Eventhough it was just a room with a private entrance, it felt like we stayed there alone. Safe area, within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Shared breakfast area. Loved how comfortable the room and bed was and how private it felt. I would definitely stay here again if needed. We stayed for 2 weeks and overall it was extremely pleasant!

Highly recommended. Other airbnb hosts should use this place as a template. I am now sold on the airbnb idea. Sarah added a lot of value to my stay.

My host Sarah was so wonderful. I arrived outside the check in time and Sarah graciously said not to worry. It was around 11 pm and she was there to greet me with a great smile. Next day she texted me that breakfast was awaiting me. Just like airbnb advertise, live instead of visit, and that is how I felt, a house guest. Everything was I read and I had a lovely outdoor space that I did not realize I would have. Sarah stayed in communication with my friends who came to pick me up for directions and other information. My friends were in Sommerset West so it was quite convenient. The location is great as you were yards (meters) away from seeing the mountains and ocean. Lovely place and I enjoyed my first Airbnb experience. I was there in the winter and would have loved to be there in the summer to enjoy more outdoor time in the yard. I had my own private entrance which was very convenient. I was welcomed to watch tv in the living room or dining room which they kept on for me.

My husband and both work from home. This is our family home of many years, and we are very involved in life in our small town on the outskirts of Cape Town and the gateway to the winelands,the magnificent Boland mountains, and the False Bay and Overberg coast
I own a small arts and crafts agency and I love art, music and theatre as well as walking in our beautiful mountains and along the coast
My husband sails and we have a small yacht moored at Gordon's Bay
We are very happy to share our home and knowledge of the area with you
