A two bedroom, open plan with bathroom. Its' compact but cosy ... but holds character and good linens. I have renovated with turn of the century lights, unique designerpieces with a contemporary edge & a splash of fun.
its all user friendly but needs an awareness that are usable and covered furniture but there are special ceramic pieces and you need to be aware of glass tables & nick nacks if you are a bit clumsy or come home late.

The flat is on the first floor of a edwarian block and looks onto the back of Devils Peak and at Rhodes Memorial and University of Cape Town. The grounds shares the border with the Presidents house which makes it really safe, beautifull and quiet. You can hear little crickets and frogs at night and church bells on sunday a few minutes from mountain access with walks , jogging tracks and (email hidden)s opposite a modernist block in neighbourhood thats lush and green with a heart beat. It regularly patrolled by the police a block away, central district and various companies and is very safe.

Our block Selborne is one of three 2 storey edwarian blocks with a well maintained garden to barbeque or picnic and plenty of mint for summer drinks & salads.
We are on the Second floor facing the mountain, the block is mixed in age and race and is relaxed. Please note due to the antiques & collectables absolutely everywhere young children wont be suited.

Once up the stair and hallway:

Open plan Lounge kitchen
The lounge contains 2 sofa, an ottoman, and a chair and two large kelims in it - with a hifi, bookshelves with small design & art & dvd library.. Sorry, no TV though.Full wifi, screens and dvd available. I like to share my discoveries from auctions, travels and love of the sea and nature in the flat. The blankets are all Basotho tribal blankets inspired by my trip to Lesotho, amongst many others.

Dining: Old antique walnut dining table for 6, comfortably 4 to eat or spread out some maps or study.

Kitchen facility: Basic with good pots,oven-microwave, a stove-top espresso maker, a stove-top kettle, juicer, blender come smoothy maker, toaster, and plenty of crockery and cutlery. I have a new washing machine and we hire in a domestic for ironing and cleaning weekly.When you stay with me my kitchen is available for your use too. As your host I am a pescetarian and I enjoy cooking. A simple self help muesli and fruit breakfast and fresh juice / tea and coffee will always be available at no additional charge.

Bathroom: I have a huge bathtub to soak in. I dance alot so its full of salts, candles, plants, bottles and object de art and small window with sky view. A separate rain shower and good fittings.

The bedroom :
North facing with columns and large windows covering wall to wall after hip height in a modest sized rectangular shaped room.. Great side mountain views of university and the mountain from the bed and desk. The warm, breezy sunny room has a double bed with good mattress, desk, many exotic plants, with leather, glass & chrome side tables clean 1930s' bauhaus furniture & wassily chair. Double door in to the lounge.

In summer the apartment is nice and cool.

other things to note :
Please note you share the geyser so it can accomodate 2 quick showers in the morning or one long one / bath. please be carefull of the handles as they need a gentle touch.

As it cost alot R 40-50 per wash & tumble dry session your allowed one per week and thereafter to contribute to keep the rates low for all or it gets factored in.

Its a old building so there are some quirks of loser handles and it gets a bit dusty after a week or two.

Please be nice of your sharing , clean -up after yourself, keep your room feeling good and helping along is what is expected of you. Not just a good dish clean but sharing the space & cleaning the bathroom after use.

When you come down the stairs, you can take in the great mountain view. You're a minute's walk through the green trees from the main road to easily catch taxis or buses into town.

- About another minute you'll come through the church grounds down more stairs and you'll be on Main road Rondebosch. Across you Italian restaurant, fish shop, old drinking fountain and a bustling student village with many diverse bar/restaurant venues and coffee shops. There will be all amenities, banks, 2 shopping centers for every budget. But for any else or other main tourist thing else - you'll need a car, or use the taxis from the main road, or phone a taxi to get around, or rent a bicycle - it takes about 25 minutes to cycle into town, or 10 minutes to cycle into Newlands Forest cycle track or up to Rhodes Memorial for a Tea or lunch.

the area:

You'll be in Rondebosch, the main historical student town of the country.Its' lush leafy area with the Baxter theater one of the countries top theater on your doorstep with its small market on weekends.

Upper Rondebosch - the area our apartment is in - is removed from the hustle and bustle of Main Road and is nice and quiet.
Its' mountainous with the forest as your doorstep. Rich with history, the area has colonial and cape architecture, opposite us a classic modernist block, has a student freshness and mix of peoples, vibrant and is central to the peninsula.

When you stay with me I want you to feel at home and its cosy space. I have travelled extensively myself and will be more than willing to help you make the most of your time in our beautiful and interesting city.
If you are travelling on business and need a place which feels like home this room offers you time to relax.

A warm, knowledgable and welcoming born and breed Capetonian. I have all the inside information to make a great trip...! and can recommend great things to do from surfing to climbing table mountain to the art gallery & design circuit & local neighbourhood goods markets.

The guest house is typically serviced twice month, midweek around lunch time - our staff cleans all rooms and provides laundry service only on those unless otherwise agreed.
Laundry and ironing can be done for a hourly rate and the apartment is serviced with maintenance and dust , general cleaning needs to continue throughout your stay by yourselves. Otherwise you can use a agent - I recommend sweepsouth or domesty a agency you sign up with your credit card and can specify your needs. they are efficient, reliable and on time.

The apartment has a new bathroom but it is a renovated but old apartment with kinks & dents that provide character that can look a bit tacky to some who may be accustomed to laminate floors. It gathers dust alot quicker but is serviced once a week which is good. expect to have nicks.

The kitchen services are limited to a 2 plate induction cooker & microwave -oven and then more only the basics more accustomed to a hotel. With kettle, toaster, microwave & juicer / blender is there but its not for cooking up a storm more warming up a storm but you can cook a full meal if you are determined.

We have 2 supermarkets with great meals a block away and a bustling main rd with many places of different varieties to eat from, take away or order in.
There is a washing machine and we expect guests to respect the fact that is not a hotel but a self-catering guest house e.g. no turn down service. Please leave the washing machine open after so it dries out well.

Any questions or concerns about your stay please address to Michelle via the contact details provided.

It is the guests responsibility to respond to our reservation confirmation with flight details and approximate arrival time.

Checkin can be arranged preferably before 9pm and check-out before 10am unless otherwise arranged. Please also remember to SMS/email/phone when you land at the airport so that we are able to welcome you at the premises on time.

Hello,

I am a designer, and architect,

I had a fine time dipping into all things Edwardian and nautical in this modern but classic apartment

I'd like to share my discoveries from auctions, travels and love of the sea in the flat. ... I explored the sea and was inspired by woods, glass of different shapes & metals and the sea.The blankets are all Basotho tribal blankets inspired by my trip to Lesotho, amongst many others.

I also love cooking and there is a huge & equipped kitchen for you to dine, blend, juice, detox or have
good coffee.

A long large dining room table for projects or workstations. ... ,a round table with sea views for breakfasts, reading, cocktail sunsets. People feel at home in the flat, enjoy it more each day and say its ambiance and character infuse them with something special.

You can feel free to have a look at to find out more about me.
