Just amazing - everything the other guests have said and more

  • 5 of 5

Sharon and John are the perfect hosts ably supported by Zoe the adorable golden retriever. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left we immediately felt welcomed and at home. With great restaurants and within easy reach of the main attractions of CapeTown as well the ability to explore off the beaten track, Bicycle Cottage has everything for a great vacation. We can't recommend this property highly enough, we will definitely be back - thank you Sharon, John & Zoe

Great self-catering cottage in a very good location.

  • 5 of 5

This has been our 10th consecutive stay with helpful and friendly hosts, John and Sharon. Bicycle Cottage, which has generously-sized rooms - two large bedrooms, a large lounge with a kitchenette, a dining room, a bathroom with full-size bath and separate shower cubicle, and a stoep with a Weber charcoal BBQ. The gardens are pretty with access to the owners' swimming pool.

A recent addition has been a lovely fridge-freezer enabling more food, including frozen food, to be kept so shopping trips can be fewer. Parking is on the driveway in front of the double garage. Security arrangements are very good for the whole property.

The cottage is ideally-situated just off Tokai Road. Within 100 yards/metres (an easy stroll) is a petrol station which has a convenience shop and both are open 24/7. Adjacent to this are an ATM, a pharmacy, a hair salon, a wine shop, a bike shop/cafe, a bistro restaurant, a sushi restaurant, and a coffee shop ideal for breakfast/lunch and dinner. Within a few minutes' drive is Steenberg Village with two supermarkets and several restaurants and shops while in a few minutes drive in the opposite direction is the Blue Route Mall.

Slightly further away is the famous and popular Constantia Village on the way to which one passes the Constantia Uitsig Winery which has a fine restaurant and a separate coffee shop/cafe ideal for breakfast and lunch with stunning views of the Table Mountain National Park.

The Waterfront and the Table Mountain cable car can be reached via the nearby M3 in about 25 minutes, subject to traffic conditions, which is about the same time as the drive to or from Cape Town International Airport.

Bicycle Cottage has become our home from home.

Owner's Response: We are happy that even the current water restrictions didn’t spoil your stay in any way. Thanks for using less than 100 liters per day and avoiding “Day Zero” Ps Bicycle Lodge has a borehole which also helps the city save water

Home from home in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about Bicycle Lodge from the warm and friendly welcome from John and Sharon to the lovely comfortable accomodation which was ideal for our fortnight's stay. Everything we needed and more was provided including a thoughtful welcome pack and some lovely wine. The garden was lovely and peaceful and a great place to BBQ and watch the birds. We also enjoyed our daily visits from Zoe the beautiful golden retriever. It was a great place to come home to after a day exploring this stunning region. We can't praise it highly enough and would happily return.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Bicycle lodge is a very homely place to stay, it has everything you would need for a perfect holiday, even the owners dog Zoe to make a fuss of.

It's very well located for visiting all the attractions of Cape Town and close by excellent shopping mall with many resturants.

I would highly recommend this property and we are already planning a return visit next year.
