The description of B & B is not as we would recognise in the U K . This is a stylish, spotless home which is shared with you by the English Couple who own it. The B & B accomodation is seperate from the owners & the B & B is run by 3 wonderful local women who are so serene they make you smile just to look at them. Cape Town's waterfront is a 15 drive away. I would never stay in central Cape Town again. The Cape, Wine region, fabulous beaches and False bay are all within 1 hours drive. There is a small pool which is handy to cool off in. Plenty of excellent restaurants to walk to in the evening, safe to do so. We booked for 2 nights & stayed a week. As you would expect the scenery is awesome. We paid £21 per person per night, excellent value.
