Host Information

Host review score 9.8

Catherine's Cottage is named after our daughter, who tells us she will never leave home! The cottage is attached to our house but has a private entrance. It is completely self-catering so guests who want their privacy don't need to interact with us at all. There is good security, with CCTV cameras in the road, and an electric gate. Our Fibre WiFi is uncapped. We offer Netflix and Showmax for guests and you can connect your laptop to the TV to watch on the big screen. We are within walking distance of the Cape Fertility Clinic, Kingsbury Hospital, John Hill Laser Eye Clinic, and other medical facilities. The V&A Waterfront is a 15 minute drive away, and the Stellenbosch and Paarl winelands within an hour's drive. There are 2 Park Runs nearby for those who want to keep fit!

Half our family is Scottish, and we worked in the Hospitality industry in Scotland for many years. We welcome guests from all over the world. Our daughter knows a TINY bit of Italian, and is currently studying French. Our dogs are part of our family. They are very protective and will bark if they see guests through the gate separating the 2 gardens, but do not have access to the cottage side of the property at all, and are not allowed into the cottage when we're cleaning between guests, so it's a "dog-hair-free" zone for anyone concerned about allergies. While we are listed as "private hosts" we do have a registered company that accommodation income is recorded through, and can give you an invoice for business purposes. However, to keep costs down, we are not run as a hotel - our cleaning lady will service the cottage once a week for "long-stay" guests, with a change of bed linen and towels, but otherwise the cottage is completely self-catering and guests are left to their own devices. We can arrange daily service at an additional cost if you let us know in advance.

Arderne Gardens is a 2 minute walk from the cottage. It's a lovely place to relax, and over weekends there are always wedding groups having photos taken, so take a picnic and watch the people! Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden is a 5 minute drive away, the V&A Waterfront 15 minutes, the vineyards of Constantia 10 minutes, Cape Point around 45 minutes depending on the time of year, and there are game farms where you can see the Big Five, within a 2 hour drive. We are in a residential area with a Primary School round the corner, so a few young families in the street, but generally quiet and peaceful.
