Very clean and well equipped flat. Guides in the apartment are also useful to organise your visits. Janet is a great hostess which gave us a lot of good tips. The neighbourhood is outside the center of cape town but very quiet and easy to reach from the airport.

Ailsworth Garden Cottage is well equipped accommodation in a relaxing, peaceful location. It has a garden, swimming pool and is a great place to chill out, if you want a break from sight seeing. There are local shops within easy walking distance for all essentials.If you don't have your own transport, the alternative way to travel is by taxi. We found Uber taxis the best way to get around Cape Town and recommend that you download the Uber app. Janet and Andrew are great hosts, they are welcoming, accessible and informative. They certainly helped to make our stay in Cape Town very enjoyable.

Janet User ProfileJanet is a superhost.

I was born & educated (Hotel Management) in South Africa, married Andrew and settled in the UK. After 20 years in the UK and a fabulous career in HR, we immigrated to Cape Town with our two sons, now age 23 and 26. I now work part-time in Executive Headhunting and Consulting.

I am a foodie, love travel, cooking, wine and good books. I have a passion for gardening, play bridge and love to entertain. Andrew took early retirement after 30 years as a Clinical Research Associate (Clinical Trials).

We travel quite a bit and Ailsworth House and Cottages are in the very competent care of Michelle Harris whilst we are away.

My Motto: Good chocolate is essential for good living!
