                          A lovely clean and a beautyfully located property

                          5 of 5
                          I enjoyed a lovely relaxed holiday in this perfect property for my needs, bordering on Westlake Golf course. The kind attention and help Magda gave was very welcome, and helped to make the whole stay very memorable.

                          Helpful owners and good location for all Cape Town areas

                          4 of 5
                          The property is in a quiet residential area with parking out front. Due to the age of the building the house layout is what you might call quirky and has an eclectic range of furniture. There's only one bedroom and so not sure the house would be suitable for more than one couple. There are supermarkets/pubs/fast food joints within a short distance, although I wouldn't recommend walking after dark (nothing against the area - more SA in particular). Colleen and John were always available if we had any questions and the only real issue we had was internet access, as coming form the UK we'd assumed unlimited access was standard. If you don't have your own data package then you need to let Colleen know in advance so she can set it up for you - and then you only get 1gb free which we found insufficient for our 4 nights. Apologies for just going on about the internet but these days it's just accepted everywhere has full and free accesss. You can see table mountain from the front veranda and everywhere in the Cape Town area is easily accessible from the house but obviously you do need a car.
