Great design, great value

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 17, 2005

An African Villa is tucked away in Tamboerskloof - this area on the slopes of Signal Hill is considered a suburb, but it's still just a 15 minute walk from the centre of town. And it's possible, if you're feeling energetic, to clamber right over the top of Signal Hill and straight down to the beach front walks to Clifton.
But - back to the house.
There are now 12 rooms, followinga refurbishment of the house adjoining the original first 4 rooms. Make sure you get a double room at the front of the house with a balcony overlooking the street. It shouldn't cost much more than a standard room, and you'll have loads of space and a big bathroom.
The design throughout is exquisite - Zen meets Africa!
There's also a small pool in the breakfast courtyard.
Breakfast is substantial - yoghurt, fruit, cereals, toast, together with cooked sausage, bacon, tomato, mushrooms, eggs! At any time you can helpyourself to the 'honour' fridge which is kept stocked with juice, water, wine and beer.
The owners (Jimmy and Louis) are truly helpful and friendly, and are great restaurant hounds, keen to give you recommendations and then learn how the meal was the next morning over coffee.
All in all, a lovely introduction to Cape Town and at superb prices! (Deluxe double room approx. 700 rand per night, depending on the season.)
