The Backpack spreads over 4 Victorian houses with high ceilings, wooden floors and tin pressed ceilings in one of the houses. There is a crisp blue swimming pool set in a lush garden with stunning views of Table Mountain. We love gardening and hope you will enjoy the many courtyards spread around the property.
