This was truly a home away from home but with the most spectacular views! We enjoyed every minute of it. We even entertained guests there who simply loved it. There is enough cutlery and crockery to host a dinner party and you can braai either on the patio facing the mountain or the one facing the harbour. we booked out...

How to get there
Airport: Cape Town International: 19.0 km
Railway: Cape Town Station : 3.0 km
Ferry: Cape Town Harbour : 4.0 km
Take the N2 from the airport direct to Cape Town, continue following the signs to the city. You will come to a traffic light at the end of the freeway. Cross the traffic light and continue and at the 4 traffic light turn right into Strand. Turn right off Strand into Loader (the turning is as you are going slightly uphill). Drive almost to the end of Loader (there is a slight kink in the road but continue to the end) and the cottage has a light blue garage door and is on the right hand side of the street.
