Good Morning,

I trust that you will get my mail this time around. I am writing on behalf of my sons, to thank you for your hospitality during their short stay in Cape Town. They have told me that they will definitely want to stay at your B&B when they visit CT again. Thank you so much

Wishing you all the best for the Festive Season. Warm regards


A hidden jewel in Cape Town. So close to everything yet a little oasis in the City. Especially good for us as we were attending the Groote Schuur hospital. Sharon, Freddie, Thandeka and the dogs made our stay extra special! Thank you thank you. We would love to come back again. Love Laura & Pete, Sydney, Australia.

We had the best time in Cape Town! Your hospitality was fantastic. We felt like we were visiting friends.

We very much enjoyed Freddy's company. He is full of mischief and fun that made us smile everyday. He welcomed us like old friends and that made such a difference to us. He was very helpful with his advice on places to see and things to do. It made life so much easier for us. We loved Cape Town and hope to return in the future. There just wasn't enough time to do everything we wanted to 🙁

I want to wish you both the very best for your future.

Your warm welcome, the joy of being with Keira, meeting your friends, walking on the beach, sunset on Signal Hill and the wonderful evenings of laughter around your table - being part of your life this week has been a memorable part of our stay in SA.
