    I like the breakfast and the location the most. The owners are friendly and accessible. They helped me to find out my need. They explained the security and safety issue wisely. Next time I would prefer to stay at this place

This house is very quiet and peaceful. The breakfast is superb. please make requests for your favourite morning meal.

Neighborhood info

Our small part of Rondebosch next to the University of Cape Town is wonderfully peaceful. We are as close as you could get to the University and many of the visiting academics enjoy the quiet to prepare. You wouldn't know that Main St with banks, stores and restaurants are only 200m away. Access to the city via the M3 is minutes away and the Baxter Theatre right next door.
