Private bedroom in a character cottage in the historic and vibey suburb of Observatory. Large sash windows look out onto a quiet street, while just around the corner trendy Observatory bars, restaurants and vintage shops abound. Booking is for one room in a house that is shared with the host. Please note the bedroom door does not lock.

The space
Character home in vibey neighbourhood - wood floors and high ceilings. The house is furnished in an antique and eclectic style, if you are looking for "current" decor, this is not the place. The shared kitchen and bathroom have the modcons and neccessary utensils. A sunny courtyard is lovely for chilling. Bedrooms are basic but comfortable. This is a house that's lived in, not a 5 star BnB or hotel - this is truly a home where you can put your feet up and relax.

Guest access
One bathroom, kitchen and basic utensils for food preparation. Courtyard for relaxing and chilling in the sun - currently only a container garden - its a work in progress. WiFi is provided.

Other things to note
Cleaning is usually done on Monday's, and Friday's including laundry service at no extra charge - we have adopted water saving measures for laundry so prefer to do it for guests. Place your laundry in the grey basket in the washing area. Bear in mind it will need at least a day to dry.

Parking is on street.

The neighbourhood is young, heterogenous and eclectic, yet quiet too - the vintage shops and quirky eating places make the area fun to wander around during the day. Extra care of your belongings should be taken when in drinking holes (pubs, clubs) and when walking after dark. It is fairly close to the town centre; Devils peak and Table mountain; and has good access via the Motorway to both Southern and Northern beaches too.

I have travelled mostly all over the world,except for South America (yet!). I love backpacking and roughing it. Camping on a beach or on some isolated hiking trail is my idea of fun. I have previously owned a backpackers and think Airbnb is even better! I am looking for guests who have a positive outlook on life. We can share travel tales and advice on places to visit all over the world, and things to do in Cape Town. I enjoy eating in (cooking or take away) and a good conversation.

During your stay
I am not always around as I work in Wellington, so sometimes you may have the whole place to yourself, although the other bedroom is still for my private use only. The house is serviced at least twice a week by my domestic Rose, depending on length of stay. She may be the one to greet you, or my neighbours Jess, Sam or Reinhardt.
