We stayed at 25 Jarvis St. Wonderful property, area and owners. The proprietors were very friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. Highly recommended.

Town house in centre of Cape Town
A very charming older town house, fully refurbished to a high standard. 10 minute walk to the V and A waterfront. Could not wish for better hosts, friendly welcoming and made you feel at home straight away. Breakfast was whatever you wanted, fresh fruit and yougart, hot rolls and croissants, cooked breakfast, tea, coffee, fruit juice, anything. We would most certainly use again if we return to Cape Town

Great apartment!
Henk was very friendly and the apartment was perfect. It's on a busy square but there's a solid door to close off the bedroom which makes it nice and dark and quite. Apartment includes everything I'd need - small refrigerator, coffee machine, and a great amount of space. They have printed out some recommendations for restaurants in the area (there are a lot) and there's a grocery store just across the square. All in all, great stay!

Très agréable maison
J'étais là pour un voyages d'affaires . Un seul regret : il faut quitter ;) La maison est très agréable, décorée avec goût et Henk est au petit soin. On se sent chez soi. Moi c'est certain j'y tournerai et avec ma famille !

Tolles Stadthaus in super Lage von Cape Town
Wunderbares, schickes Stadthaus (145 Waterkant Street) in einem tollen Stadtviertel von Cape Town, gute Lage zur Innenstadt und zur V&A Waterfront, sehr gepflegt, gute Ausstattung, tolle Dachterrasse. Guido hat uns sehr nett begrüßt und uns viele Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt gegeben. Es gab rein gar nichts zu beanstanden. Es war schön, nach unseren Unternehmungen zurück ins Haus zu kommen. Absolute Empfehlung!
