We've stayed at Shelagh's for two months and we could have not been happier. If you think that staying in town is the key for your Cape Town days think twice. Reaching downtown is an easy 10 minute drive from here and so is everywhere else around the city that you will surely want to explore. Staying here gives you access to so much more than the city itself. The cottage is comfortable, independent and even better and bigger than in the pics. It has everything you need for a great stay. We were worried about the small kitchen (we cook a lot) but as it turns out Shelagh has equipped it with everything you need and more. We would most certainly come back here next time.

This is a great find. Easy access to the motorways, spacious and peaceful. Serviced during the week, secure off street parking. Would definitely stay again. Thanks!

Shelagh and Ed were wonderful hosts, very helpful and warm. The compact cottage is very well equipped, modern, comfortable and clean. Traveling on business, I really appreciated the WiFi to stay connected.

We had a great time staying in the cottage. We felt really safe during our whole stay. Shelagh provided us with the best recommendations for activities in and around Cape Town you can get. The flat was as beautiful as on the pictures, very clean and there's definitely enough space to feel home. Everyday the flat was arranged, even our left over dishes were washed. Every morning, we woke up looking forward to the company of Tana, the Labrador, at our breakfast table (but if you don't like dogs, Shelagh would have kept her inside.) Nearby, you can find some shops which provide you with everything you need. If you're planning to visit the typical touristic destinations around Cape Town, it's definitively a good idea to choose this cottage as your home base. We hope we'll manage to come back soon.

I enjoy gardening, walking on the mountain and traveling.
I have been hosting guests in my cottage for 7 years and enjoy meeting new people and creating a comfortable space for them to come home to.
