I stayed here during a work trip to visit the local children's hospital in Rondebosch. It is a small establishment that I believe only has 10 rooms. My room was not the best that I've stayed in. A queen bed is two twins pushed together. The water had an odor (I'm guessing that's because we were near the beach) but the view from the room was spectacular. I could see Table Top Mountain and the island where Mandela was imprisoned from my room. I was on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. The weather was gorgeous so we were there at a really good time of year.
The house hostess is incredible. She was super helpful. On the way over KLM Airlines destroyed my bag. This was my first trip off my home continent and so I didn't know enough that my flat iron wouldn't work there even though I'd bought a converter. Or that my phone wouldn't work even though I thought I'd upgraded to an international plan. Tracy let me borrow her flat iron (although I ended up not being able to use it so she then offered me the number to her hair hair stylist! Who was amazing by the way.). She let me use the house phone whenever I needed it. She called me a cab whenever i needed it. She recommended food places. She cooked breakfast every morning (which my colleagues ate, but I can't eat anything before 6 am) and it was hearty food.
At the end of every day I welcomed coming to what felt like home. One of the nights my colleagues were able to cook out on the patio. I think the locals call it barbecue. The property is gated so I felt very safe. I even like that the there were tv channels that I could watch during my down time. I arrived in Cape Town with a bit of a cold so I didn't hang out as much with my colleagues as I would have liked.
Staying here made my first trip to Cape Town amazing. I would definitely come back and stay again but this time for vacation. Especially if Tracy is still managing the property.
