Our two-story, three-bedroom, semi-detached home was built in 1899, and is a mix of Victorian charm and everyday comfort.

The home has three outdoor spaces - a front courtyard, an atrium and a back yard with a braai (BBQ) area. The main bedroom also has a balcony.

The house sleeps five comfortably and we have a high chair, cot and baby gate available, if you're travelling with an infant.

Just a short walk to Observatory's best coffee shops, parks and bars.

Fireplace for cold winter nights!

The space

Our house is set up to sleep 5:

- A master bedroom with en-suite toilet/shower, balcony and queen sized bed.
- A guest bedroom with queen sized bed and writing desk.
- A child's bedroom with single bed and cot. (The single bed is full size and will comfortably sleep an adult.)

The house comes equipped with a washing machine and dishwasher. There is also a washing line outside. There is a TV and an Xbox to login to your own Netflix! No local channels.

The house has an alarm and an armed response service, ensuring you feel safe and secure during your stay.

The fireplace warms the whole downstairs area, and we keep a stock of firewood for guests to use.

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole house, with the exception of any locked cupboards.

Interaction with guests

Our house is managed by Rudi. He will be in touch with you to arrange key handover, and a quick tour of the house (how the alarm works, Wifi password, etc.). After that, the house is yours to enjoy.

We had a great stay in this house. 15 min from the airport and 10 to 20 minutes by car to Robbeneiland and the Tablemountain. The house is very clean and nicely decorated.

Our stay at Debra's place was delightful and you really receive value for money spent. It is ideal for a family vacation. Every enquiry was handled with patience and kindness even the misunderstanding regarding our parking space in the street. We would gladly return. Loved the welcome note, wine, and fireplace. Just book it already!

Marieke (the host) was lovely and readily available to meet our needs. The house was very clean ,everything we needed was readily available. It was great having a cleaner who came once a week to clean the house and changing the bedding. The house was so child friendly which was perfect for us as I have a 6 month old! The one disappointment was not being able to watch local television for the whole 3 weeks. The tv was there but not linked to cable ,this was never mentioned through all our correspondence until we got there. Though the tv was linked to Netflix the Wi-Fi was often painfully slow which meant movies often buffered multiple times throughout. The property is located centrally with local supermarkets, restaurants and nightlife being a few minutes away by car or on foot. Though it's locate central the neighbourhood itself was nice a quite in a little secluded area. Which was great! Thanks Marieke for hosting us and Debra for your beautiful home!

What a great place this was! The host was super welcoming, explained everything clearly and even left a bottle of wine for us to enjoy. The house was well stocked with everything one would need. It was a huge bonus to have the baby stuff there too I.e a cot, Compactum, baby bath, High chair and baby bottle sterilizer. There was ample space in all the rooms with clean linen and towels throughout. Thank you guys for a great stay!
