Our house is a wonderful oasis in the trendy central Cape Town suburb of Observatory, with two en-suite bedrooms each with a double bed, a quiet and comfortable library with a guest toilet, a large open plan kitchen/lounge, a comfortable outside deck and two off-street parking spaces.
Our home is safe, stylish and welcoming. You’re minutes away from the airport, the city bowl, the V&A Waterfront and the highways and railways to the winelands, the beaches, the suburbs and the Atlantic Seaboard.
Our newly renovated house is part of four semi-detached houses in the old 19th century Cape style. Historic outside, funky inside.
Our house is perfect for local and international tourists, couples, families and business travellers who want to be close to all that Cape Town and the Western Cape have to offer - and parents of students and visiting academics at UCT are equally welcome.
Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and you'll be warm and snuggly with your electric blanket on a chilly Cape Town night.
And on warm days and evenings, our open plan kitchen/lounge/deck is a great space to enjoy a snack, a meal or a drink or two under our magnificent trees.
You have exclusive use of the entire house and have access to DSTV (cable TV), WiFi, gas hob cooker, combination microwave/convection oven, fridge, washing machine, dishwasher, gas heater and electric blankets .
Interaction with guests
We are based in Johannesburg and the Observatory house is managed by Evelyne Esterhuize and her domestic helper Loka. Evelyne is a good friend of ours who lives a few houses away and who will look after you during your stay. Evelyne or Loka will be available to meet you anytime up to 9pm and for later arrivals they will leave the keys in the key box by the front security gate. I will give you the code to open it when you book.
Other things to note
We share our garbage removal bin with our neighbour next door (Simone at 27 Arnold Street). If you need to replace the dust bin bag in the kitchen, please leave it outside the back door and the cleaner will deal with it when you depart.
