The house and the rooms are styliysh and unique. Linda and Le Roy are wonderful hosts. I could not choose much better and would come back at once...

I have stayed many times at this location. Le Roi and his wife are wonderful hosts. Also enjoyed touring Cape Town with Le Roi. They even wnet the extra mile: my wife liked one of the cereals they were offering for Breakfast so they gave her 2 bags prior to check out so she takes it home with her :)

Thanks for your kind hospitality during my stay in Cape Town. All I needed was on hand, including a good breakfast that happened in a rush to accommodate my early meetings. A Map will be a great help.
