Security in Walmer Estate and South Africa
We have burglar bars on all windows and security gates on all doors. In my 37 years here, I have never had a burglary at my home.
When visiting South Africa, always be aware of your surroundings and the people in your vicinity.

Cars park in the street, so you guessed it, there is no off street parking or garage. Just dont leave your brand new apple IPAD laying in full view of prying eyes and you will be fine.

Very friendly family, very quick communication. Very good value. The place well equiped and clean. Close to city center and n2 highway. Plenty of parking space in the street. We loved the location to meet local people and see old District six. We stayed for a week, and were very happy to meet Shadley and Dempsy, i made a mistake with the returning of the keys and all was quickly resolved. We visited another house they rent out, Very luxurious.

Airbnb recommends that I list 5 things that i like so let me list them here:
In no particular order.
My 2 kids (Read Gremlins)
Cricket (For the Americans, its not the insect, Ill explain when I see you)
Biltong - Love the stuff, but the Dr says I need to cut down, I guess everything in moderation right?
My Wife - ( She's got a knife to my throat, just kidding :)
Travelling - Love new cultures and meeting new people

I would like to think of myself as quite the foodie especially since I live in one of the top foodie cities in the world according to Condé Nast. Yes, Cape Town is my oyster.
