    No complaints at all!

    Rhonda was a wonderful host and I loved getting to know her and her family throughout my stay. The home is absolutely beautiful, with stunning furnishings and everything is sparkling clean. She made herself available to me whenever I needed anything and gave great recommendations for things to do in Cape Town. The breakfast was simply wonderful and made for a perfect start to the day. The location of Rhonda’s manor was great too, 5 min walk to the water and very easy to get anywhere in town. I loved my stay so much I had to extend it by a night!

    Keep an eye on the prize in Rand!!! My room was completely overprized and was offered in the internet closer to the trip for almost 70% less. The money was immediately cashed from the visa-card. Booking comp tried to help in reducing the prize, but there was nothing they or we could do about it. So do not book room 2. The room was very cold (winter in July), as the old air condition in room 2 was not efficiant. The bathroom was big, but the shower not comfortable. The villa is situated on a hill and not in the city centre. You have to climb everyday three blocks down or up. In July you can not use the garden or swimming pool. Anyhow Captown has a big water problem. The breakfast was for the prize of a 4,5 star hotel quite simpel and every day the same.

    The whole house was very nicely furnished in a boutique style. The beds and matrasses were very comfortable. There was a kind of wintergarden and a common room with a big TV which the guests can also use.

    Wifi was a perpetual headache, having landed in Capetown i wished to plan ahead (for my 2 wks) but that eluded me due to no or v poor wifi when available. repeated complaints did not improve the situation. the shower had an issue which also could not be resolved. breakfast was basic but ok.

    Rhonda herself is an amazing person. vibrant and full of energy. she truly is the leading light behind the whole enterprise. She is extremely helpful and will leave no stone unturned to get you what you want by way of connect ups, tours and sightseeing. the room was very well furnished and comfy toiletries were gd so the towels.

    Wifi is non-existent in Room 8 (Annex). Three requests for a hair-dryer. Very slow breakfast service - if we had had an appointment we would have been horribly late. Hosts entertained friends very loudly. Expectations of a quiet Sunday breakfast on the patio were dashed.

    Bed comfy. Good scrambled egg. Security. Well situated for Seapoint area. Nice pool area. Hosts were friendly.

    Wonderful place in a wonderful location managed by wonderful people. This old beautifully restored house sits in a perfect location just meters away from lots of bars and restaurants. The people there give a whole new meaning to "helpful" and will make you enjoy your stay even more. Also, if you value Cleanliness above all, this is the place for you.

    If someone needs it: Internet in the rooms could be more connective, and choice of TV channels also. But you have this all in the Public viewing area.

    Situated in one of the best parts of the city, walking distance to beach and places to go out. Wonderfull villa with spacy rooms, partly with seaview. Many different corners just to sit , to read or have a drink. For us the best stay in 3 weeks SA. But even better is the owner Family. We felt like staying At home with old Friends. We were sad to leave.

    Booking at very short notice we didn't have high expectations but were bowled over at the friendliness and gorgeousness of the colonial style house. Beautiful decor, spacious and with elegant style, right down to the room spray and toiletries. White linen and huge bath; great breakfast; and Rhonda and Tony ensure you're well cared for. Great Location just 5 minutes to the sea and bus stops to everywhere. We will certainly be back.
