Our light-filled 2 bedroom apartment on the side our house has its own entrance. It offers a quiet stay in an established garden with a pool and braai area with spectacular views of the city, Table Mountain and Lions Head. We are conveniently located within 2 min walk to a MyCiti bus stop or 10-15 min walk to Kloof Street with shops and restaurants. Hiking routes on Table Mountain to the cable car and Lions Head start 50m from our doorstep. We have a friendly Vizsla dog called Dora.

The space

The apartment is part of a mid-century modern house that was originally built in 1968. It is called Berghütte, which means "Mountain Hut", being situated on the slopes of Table Mountain. The design and building materials that were used, are simple i.e pine ceilings and sealed brick floors in the living areas and wooden parquet flooring in the bedrooms. The house faces North and the facade is made of glass and timber letting in lots of light throughout the day.

The main bedroom is very spacious with an extra length queen size bed and a lounger chair as well. The second bedroom is smaller with a double bed. Both bedrooms have cupboard space available and have leafy outlooks. Fresh bed linen and towels are provided and replaced once a week for guests staying longer than 7 days.

The bathroom has a shower over the bath. Complimentary hand soap, shower gel/shampoo and toilet paper is supplied.

The kitchen is cute and compact and is equipped with the basics i.e stove, oven, fridge, kettle, toaster, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. Should you wish to do some washing/ ironing, it can be arranged.

The apartment has its own outdoor seating area overlooking the pool and has a pretty view of Lion's Head mountain to the west - a perfect setting for an outdoor meal or sundowners. There is a weber barbeque (braai) for our guests' exclusive use here too.

Guest access

The apartment has its own outdoor seating area and is closest to the pool whereas the main house is closer to the lawn, braai area and view terrace overlooking the city but we are happy to share these spaces with our guests.

Interaction with guests

We allow our guests as much privacy as possible, however we are happy to share more about our favourite local spots and activities, travel tips or provide any other support related to your stay.

Other things to note

Our pool does not have a safety cover, although there is a security door which you can close to keep the kids inside when you cannot keep an eye on them playing outside.

For various reasons we prematurely cancelled our stay in the apartment. The host, Lisa and her husband, were both very sympathetic and understanding. We do believe that future guests will have a very nice stay.

Lisa is a great host. The house is such a peaceful and wonderful place. There is everything you need. Very clean, secure and enough place for 3-4 people. The location has an amazing view on table mountain, lions head and the city. We loved to have breakfast in the gardan. The pool is perfect for hot summer days. I would highly recommend this lovely accommodation and would definitely stay again. Plus: We are totally in love with Pablo and Dora (their 2 dogs). Thank you for the great time!

Lisa was a thoughtful hostess who communicated regularly to check in on us and make certain we were comfortable. The views from the property were stunning and having a pool in a lovely garden was a real bonus. We could quickly find our way around the neighbourhood and Cape Town's many sights from Lisa's place. I will be sure to recommend her to friends and would enjoy staying there again when I am lucky enough to get back to Cape Town.

Response from Lisa:
Hi Sharon Thank you so much for your beautiful review and apreciation of our home. You were our first guests to stay without us being around. It felt as though you were family with frequent messages and sincere thanks and its a pity we never met in person but there's always next time! All the best, Lisa and Johan

Lisa and Johan are amazing hosts. The apartment is as nice as on the pictures - very stylish, clean, cozy and roomy! Also you can have a great time in the garden hanging out at the pool or with their lovely dogs. Lisa and Johan know Capetown in detail and you can ask them for a hint anytime. Also you can walk to a lot of good restaurants around kloof street or up the hill to the table mountain cable car station. Honestly it was a real pleasure to stay at their place and I would return anytime! Thanks a lot for the great times, Lisa and Johan!
