If you want to experience Cape Town the right way, then come stay in this beautiful Bo-Kaap house, right in the heart of the Cape Town city bowl. Relaxing living area, open plan kitchen/dinning area, gas stove, and AMAZING deck/balcony that overlooks Table Mountain (seriously, it’s amazing). Walking distance from all the best restaurants and night spots: Long street, Kloof and Bree street. The perfect place to experience the city, and take in the best views in South Africa.
Accès des voyageurs
The whole house is open to you. The lounge is perfect for reading, and the dinning room is a great place to work or chat with the house mates/guests over a coffee (try out our local favourite, "Deleuxe," which we use and is complimentary to all our guests).
The quaint courtyard outside is perfect for catching some sun and if you feel like getting inspired, the whole house is decorated with art (mostly original work by the two resident artists). The ultimate spot, however, is the top balcony, which boasts some of the best views in Cape Town (see photos if you don't believe me).
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I may be away on film shoots, but there will always be a friendly house mate there to help out, chat or have a drink with you! The ladies who live with me are fantastic hosts and great conversationalists, and will happily give you all the advice you need to know when it comes to eating out/activities in Cape Town!
Security in Cape Town is important. Like any bustling city, Cape Town experiences lots of petty crime, so be vigilant at all times!
We have a FULL ALARM and SECURITY system that secures the house and the patio outside. Outdoor alarm beams are turned on at night and if you leave the house in the day, the indoor alarm is set. If the alarm is triggered, the armed security company responds in 3-5 minutes.
There will be some noise in the day time, as the Bok-kaap community is very lively (expect children laughing outside in the streets)!
- SMOKING IS ALLOWED outside on the balcony or in the courtyard ONLY!
- Gatherings and small parties are welcome IF consent is given by the other residents (who love a good party themselves - so please ask first!)
- Must keep the kitchen clean if you intend on cooking in the house.
- Must keep your room relatively neat and tidy.
- Must be respectful and well-mannered.
Greetings World! Here a just a few (fun) reasons why living with my friends and I, in my beautiful Cape Town house this December, is the best decision you can make:
My name is Jethro, which is not very common and thus less likely to be confused with a 'Matthew' or a 'Nick', thereby making for a more perspicuous living environment. As shown in the sentence prior, I have an extensive vocabulary which makes for edifying and stimulating dinner time conversations ;) . I am small in stature and, therefore, take up less space and spend less time in the shower (#basicscience). I never use hashtags except when trying to relate to a virtualised social community that intimidates me. I don't have a favourite Premier League soccer team. I am a film lecturer. However, this does not mean I bring more enjoyable films into my/our home. In fact, I might only establish a cinema culture of despondency, melancholy and other synonyms for sadness...(not sure if this is an attribute). I am averse to 'Live, Laugh, Dream' slogans (I don't like random verbs on refrigerators telling me how to live my life). I don't smoke, unless there's vodka involved. I don't drink vodka. I do make good Gin and Tonics.
I happen to live with three incredible women, two of whom are full time artists and part-time barmaids at the number one Cape Town watering-hole: The Power and The Glory (which is right up the road). The other is a music therapist and a professional angel.
In this house you will make friends and have fun and get to know Cape Town. If you're fine with the above, then we'd love to have you.
