Response from Susanne:
Thank you for your honest feedback. It was great having you in our cottage. Yes, the busy road is a constant headache for me. This time of the year it is at it's worst, because Cape Town is full to capacity and then Klipper Road becomes busy (although it is not a main road). Capetonians, on their way to work, use Klipper Road more often this time of the year due to congestion everywhere else :). On the positive side: our guests are immediately onto the highway off Klipper and do not sit in traffic to their destination weather that is the centre of town or Muizenberg on the other side. We have done a few things to reduce the traffic noise from the road - the water feature, the fence, the big trees on the wide pavement, the wooden outside shutters, but realise that we might have to think up something else. Any suggestions?
