The owners Jenny and Johan
This house is very quiet and peaceful. The breakfast is superb. please make requests for your favourite morning meal.
We have returned from Qatar(middle East) after 10 years. We had the opportunity to travel very extensively and have found the best place in all the world, South Africa and Cape Town, what a wonderful City. From an engineer to a guest house host and owner. Allow us to take good care of your needs.
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.
