Come inside

Built in 1896, the house itself is a beautiful and painstakingly restored Victorian semi-detached retaining many of its original features such as embossed ceilings, stained-glass windows and polished wooden floors.

Our 6 tastefully-appointed rooms are furnished in colonial style in keeping with the house’s Victorian origins. They are all ensuite with showers (one has a bath with hand-shower) and have tea/coffee making facilities. Free WiFi is available throughout the house. Four are double rooms and two are twins, including the Zebra Room, our most spacious room with its own balcony.

We arrange airport transfers on request as well as tours to the major local attractions such as Cape Point, the Winelands and, in season, whale watching and the West Coast wild flowers. Please don’t hesitate to ask us for tips on these attractions .

We are also happy to make restaurant reservations for you.

Wireless internet is available throughout the house. Laundry service is also available.

Your hosts are Sabine Riedrich and Rod Shaw. Sabine is a South African born German citizen who commutes between Germany and South Africa. Rod is a British citizen who came to South Africa in 2000 and has not regretted the move for one moment. Having spent many years in Germany, he also speaks fluent German. Both are committed to making your stay in Cape Town as pleasant as possible. They are ably supported by Anne, the friendly and ever-cheerful housekeeper.
