It is not often that a German can describe something with the adjective "lovley" and not sound like a pretentious douche (no, not the french word for shower). Our three-night-stay at Pam and Steve's Rose Cottage, however, completely and honestly was lovely.
The rooms are in the first floor so you have a good view over camps bay. Better yet, if you turn your head you can see the upper station of the table mountain. If its covered in clouds you know with one look that you should find another activity for the day, since you won't see anything up there (if they even drive). Just as good are Pam's homemade cookies that she leaves conveniently in a cookie jar in your room. It was hard not to wolf them down (thankfully they got replenished every day).
The cottage itself is a good starting point to drive into Cape Town to see the sights there. On the last day we also followed the coast to Chapmans Peak and onwards to the Cape of Good Hope. I can fully recommend it, but book early, otherwise you won't get any rooms.
Pro-Tip: If you using a GPS, do not trust the street names. Use latGPS coordinates Steve sends out. Why? Because there is a Fiskaal Road and a 8 Hoopoe Avenue above Atlantis, ca 55 km to the north. We went there (and back) and while it isn't a scary neighborhood it certainly isn't lovely.
