The space
You have access to a one bedroom cottage located in a secure, gated lane.

The cottage was build by the workers constructing Cape Town Harbor some 150 years ago and housed them at the time. The cottage has been lovingly renovated, while maintaining its original character and furnished with items old and new.
There is an inviting patio where you can relax outside.

Guest access
There is a 24/7 property manager on call for all emergencies.

There is a pre-paid wifi dongle, for which you need to purchase data with Vodafone as required. There are typically 30MB preloaded. Vodafone data packages with are available as "once off" packages ranging from R 12 for 30 MB to R 299 for 3GB.

Other things to note
This cottage is my holiday home and has been furnished with love. Please treat it gently and respectfully. It also helps the next person find things if you return items to their place.

The cottage has wifi. It is a pay as you go solution. You can buy data packages / airtime for what you need at Vodafone and top up the wifi.

Given guests have refused to provide a credit card imprint as security I am now in addition asking everyone to pay EUR 500 to airbnb as deposit. This will be released within 48 hours after your stay if no claims are registered with airbnb. As you can appreciate EUR 500 does not cover a fraction of what damages there could be.

Cape Town is one of my favorit cities in the world and I spend six years there; finishing my school and my university education. Sadly I can libve there and be gainfully employed. So I have a home that I visit when time permits and which I share with guests. I love it dearly and hope my guests will enjoy it too; treating it with care and respect. I enjoy life at the beach, good food, wine and lovely weather; all of which Cape Town has on offer.
