Large room on a quiet street in Harefield Village, Cape Town, with an extra length queen bed, roll-top desk, a bay window looking onto the guests' garden, two armchairs and an en suite bathroom.

Peaceful, spacious and comfortable. Perfect if you need to be around the southern suburbs and close enough to downtown.

Thank you John, we had a memorable stay with you. So many little details reflecting the artist in you. It felt like home from home. We just love Harfield Village. There is easy access to everything you want, great eating places, parks, train, or just quiet ambling round the su…

Hi Alex, just seeing your private comment re the shower! There's a water saving switch at the top of the shower head, and it looks like another guest had switched off the water flow while adjusting the position of the shower head. It's actually a really strong flow! If you look at Noel Nyasha's review he says " The shower nozzle is amazing and helped me in relaxing each day. " :) Thank you so much for letting us know, though! The guests who arrived after you were checking out this morning, and we were able to apologize in person and show them the valve, resolving the issue. They'd also been suffering through cold showers and eventually resorted to baths. We hope greatly you'll stay again, but please feel free to text us or email us about any problems you have? We really don't mind and it helps us resolve things quickly, and get five star ratings ;) Warmest Regards, John and Rowena
