Property info

We now have an inverter system to ensure power remains on during load-shedding (power cuts in South Africa)! Although our WiFi rating is low for some reason, likely due to one guest rating it low, we have top of the line high-speed WiFi with no issues which our guests love and often use for professional purposes. Newly-renovated (hence the new listing) private suite in a small boutique hotel. The hotel is set in a 120 year old house which has just been restored in October 22. Carefully curated spaces, our boutique hotel has a pool, sauna, communal areas,​ and table mountain views. Within walking distance to hip restaurants, bars, and shops. Daily housekeeping, complimentary continental breakfast, and hotel style living in the comfort of a home feeling is what you can expect. Make yourself at home and enjoy this extremely comfortable and warm space. Nestled in the charming Bo-Kaap neighborhood, it is an all around fully furnished "lock and up go" convenient space. The house is extremely secure and includes manned security and cameras. Wake up in the morning to a stunning view, grab your continental breakfast tray prepared by our chef and neighbor Shariefa, who grew up in the neighborhood, and enjoy an artsy, boutique hotel room in a stunning historic house which has been newly renovated. We, the owners, have put our heart and soul into creating a space that will have you smiling at every corner and feeling relaxed, while experiencing a totally unique style. Each room in the hotel is different, and each has its own magic. You will have some interaction with other guests, as the space is quite homey, which all visitors have loved as the people the hotel attracts are wonderful, successful and with incredible stories of their own. We can't wait to host you.

Neighborhood info

You are in the ever-so-charming, blogger-loved, often posted about on social media, colourful and lovely Bo-Kaap - the oldest surviving residential neighborhood in Cape Town. In fact, Bo-Kaap's origins date back to the 1760s, and are rooted in Malaysian, African, Indian and Sri Lankan culture. You are right in the middle of history! Formerly known as the Malay Quarter, Bo-Kaap is situated at the foot of Signal Hill and is recognized by its distinctive pastel coloured houses and cobbled streets. Its location is amazing, being right on the fringe of the city centre while being footsteps away from trendy coffee shops, breakfast spots, and the heart of the city. Many argue that this district is actually the most central and up-and-coming in Cape Town. You will be sure to enjoy the rich and multicultural history, close community, and friendly neighbors, which visitors often find fascinating and unforgettable. We can’t wait for you to experience it!
