A guesthouse in the posh neighbourhood of De Waterkant, beautifull, gorgeous and well-kept house, rooms are grand and spacious, except for one thing the below 2 rooms share the ultra spacious grand bathroom fit for a king, the top room has an ensuite bathroom. Walking distance from the V&A, very safe neighbourhood and Gordon's a great host, friendly and can also arrange a driver for you excursions for cheap, he even offered to drive us around in his car. Theres a restaurant close by called Cubana, fab Cuban food and a wide range of beverages for reasonable rates...so is Piano Bar.

Gordon is a great host. And very helpful. Due to the descriptions on the website, we had a misunderstanding of the price and accommodations when we got there. This is the fault of the website, not Gordon's. We worked out a fair agreement so we ended up staying an extra night.

For the record, Gordon's rents out rooms in his home. He has three rooms available and the price is based on one room. Gordon has a gorgeous home in an upscale and safe area of town...De Waterkant. Walking distance to most attractions or a short taxi ride.

Gordon has a great host. We shared stories, shots of jack Daniels and wine, did our laundry and he even drove us around to where we needed to go when he was free.

If you like home stays this is the place for you!!!

We stayed here as it was located < 2km from the starting point of the marathon race.

* Clean house with friendly host
* Good breakfast spots nearby
* Smack in the center of Cape Town in a safe area
* Gordon was nice enough to help us with a bike rental and knows a ton of good visiting spots nearby
* Wifi works like a charm

Would recommend for a pleasant Cape Town stay.

In a very nice and safe area, close to pubs and restaurants we found this guesthouse.
The bed was giant and good quality, the bathroom also big and nicely decorated. Wifi fast and free. Smart TV. Ask for the room downstairs, so you can speak with the Koy carpers.
Parking under the trees in front of this veranda equiped smart house in a dead end street.
Gordon is an nice senior person, he even offered to drive us for free to the V&A Waterfront.
We certainly will come back!

Gordons house has a very good location for visits in C town, we walked to Waterfront and cityareas. The local bus is easy to use and reach the most interesting areas in the city, so you can leave the car.
We found many good restaurants a short walk from Gordons. The room we had was small but this is in Gordons home so it is OK. If you want space this is not the place.

"The room I stayed in is Upstairs close to the kitchen. It has an ensuite toilet and shower, but it&#39;s all in one room. So you can see the toilet and shower from your bed. If you a couple this is fine, but if you think you need more privacy, asked for the rooms downstairs."
