Spacious 4-bedroom, 2-bath urban oasis close to everything in central Cape Town with patio deck, Weber grill and treehouse roof deck. Located at the edge of the historic Bo Kaap neighborhood, enjoy a stunning view of Table Mountain and Signal Hill in an authentic residential area a short walk to restaurants, nightlife, shops and attractions. Suitable for families, groups of friends or long-term business visitors, yet overflowing with authentic Cape Town character.

The space

The property is full of character and features 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom is spacious and includes a Queen sized bed and en suite with shower. Two smaller bedrooms - one with a double bed and one with two single/twin beds - are directly across from the master. The fourth bedroom with Queen sized bed is at the rear of the house, with French doors leading from the living room and onto patio deck. All beds are equipped with comfy new Sealy Posturepedic pillow top mattresses.

The main bathroom is a few stairs down from the kitchen and features both shower and soaker tub.

Outside, enjoy the private, shaded patio; have an outdoor shower after the beach; or follow the ladder up the fig tree to the treehouse roof deck with views of Table Mountain and the Cape Town "City Bowl".

Guest access

Guests may check in anytime after 3pm on the date of arrival. Guests who would like to arrive earlier will need to book the previous night as housekeeping needs the full day to ensure the house is fresh and clean.

Guests have full access to the whole house including cupboards, all bedrooms, kitchen, washing machine, dryer, the patio, braai/grill/BBQ and the treehouse deck.

Interaction with guests

If we're in Cape Town Jonathan or Andrew will personally greet you and make sure you're settled in. If we happen to be elsewhere at the time, you'll be greeted and settled in by one of our friendly friends or associates. We'll always be a phone call, email or text away should the need arise, but we'll otherwise let you have the space and time to yourself: we want this to be your oasis.

Other things to note

As is standard in South Africa, we have an ADT alarm system which should be activated whenever leaving the house. Instructions will be provided at check in and are included in the house guide.

Parking is readily available - for free - right in front of the house on the street. Please just observe security advice provided in the house manual.

Great place, located in central Bo Kaap. Jonathan was very good about meeting us initially and helping us with questions along the way. The outdoor space and "treehouse" gave an amazing view onto Table Mountain. Highly recommend a stay here.

Hosts were very helpful and quick to reply to our emails and concerns. Location was easy to get taxis/uber go get to waterfront and other attractions - nothing was really within walking distance(URL HIDDEN) Beds comfortable, bathrooms clean and spacious, roomy/comfortable enough for 8, towels and basics supplied. Although advertised as having safe street parking in front of home, be cautious. The rear view mirrors on our rental vehicle stolen/broke off on our first night at the home. Apparently this damage is not covered in rental contract - check your contract carefully - very costly. Cooking for 8 people was tricky as there are not enough large pots and pans to cook for number all at once.

Really lovely house and very home- like. Great outdoor space to have a bbq or just chill on a nice afternoon. Perfectly situated away from the hustle and bustle but only a short walk from the restaurants and bars in town. Easy check in/out and very secure. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend. Thanks again :)

I stayed here with my family of 7. It's very central and close to shops. We felt safe as the place is in a good neighbourhood. The security indoors was top notch too. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants value for their money as well as comfort.

We stayed 4 nights and the accommodations were ideal for us. There was ample room for me, my husband and 2 adult sons. The full kitchen and washer dryer set up were welcome after being on the road for the previous week. Check in and out was easy and Kim gave us all the information we needed. Loved being in the Bo Kaap neighborhood.- easy parking right out side the front door and close to down town and the convention center. Thanks Jonathan and Andrew for sharing your home. We had an amazing time in Cape Town.

Really great location in a neighborhood with character and history. The house is tastefully furnished and we were given a bag of fresh coffee to start our three day stay. We'll be back!

Jonathan User ProfileJonathan is a superhost.

We're an American from Chicago (Jonathan) and a British-South African born in Cape Town (Andrew) living and working in Johannesburg while keeping a dreamy foothold in the Mother City.

We're both seasoned Airbnb users and Jonathan is a veteran Airbnb host (with a Chicago property). We love traveling and hope we can help other people discover and enjoy Cape Town - Africa's oasis - as much as we do!
