Margaret's place was great! Pictures are very accurate, good size rooms and nice to have access to garden area. Margaret's housemaid ensured that the place was 100% clean, he cleaned when we were out so we didn't see him throughout the stay. Location wise it is very central and easy to access major tourist areas. The area itself felt safe. Only issues were: 1) wifi - could be slow at times. But this was something we experienced in most areas in South Africa. 2) stairs leading up to the bedroom - were very narrow and winding round. Margaret did warn us of these. We were fine with the stairs but I would be wary of this as I don't think my parents would be confident with the stairs. Overall a really great stay, very central, safe and great hosts! Thanks!!

We recommend this lovely place to anyone who wants to enjoy Capetown to its fullest. The location is perfect to allow you to move in every direction, making it easy to fulfil your day. Table Mountain is just around the corner as so many more attractions. The public transportation also makes it very easy and close to get around, the beaches and neighbouring beaches are amazing, the place has everything you need and more and Margaret makes it so enjoyable that for the first moment you arrived you feel at home! Lovely and private. We will for sure come back!! ❤️❤️

Margaret, her husband Mike, and house man Luscius were extremely helpful and accommodating during our stay. The home is beautiful and the neighborhood is very safe. It is also just 2 blocks away from some of the best breakfast/brunch places I had while in Cape Town.

Our stay at this beautiful house was just wonderful. Our host Margaret, her husband & housekeeper Lucien are such lovely people and we felt very welcome. The house we stayed in was very spacious, clean and with direct entry to the garden. It's great that you have 2 bathrooms and loads of space for your stuff. The bed was very comfy, too. Overall we can highly recommend this place for your next trip to capetown if you're looking for a beautiful place in a quiet area that is still close to everything by foot - gym, grocery store, cafes etc... We can't wait to come back here!

Monte Leone is a great place to stay. Also for a longer period. We were there for 10 nights. And Margaret and Michael are very friendly and very helpfull hosts. We especially enjoyed the terrace outside the appartment because with the Cape Town weather it's nice to have an outside where you can relax. The location is great. Just 5-10 minute walk from restaurants and supermarket. Recommended for a stay in Seapoint/Fresnay.

Margaret I'd an amazing host and couldn't have been more helpful and communication was fantastic. Margaret made sure we had everything we needed and gave us great tips for our trip around South Africa. The accommodation was clean, quiet and provided everything we needed, and is in a great spot for public transport, shops and close to be able to walk up Lion's head. I would recommend Margarets place to anyone and she gives you such a warm welcome that you will feel at home.

Margaret and Mike where wonderful hosts and very kind. Also is the place very fabulous and clean and feels great hanging by the pool in the morning. It's only a walk away from lions head and the beach which is just perfect.
