About the Homestay
We are a family of 4. We have 2 sons, both having completed their university degrees and are now working in their chosen careers. Our eldest is 24 and he lives and works from home for the most part. Our younger 22 year old has recently moved to Johannesburg to start his career there.
My husband and I are entrepreneurs and work a loy from home. We live in the beautiful suburb of Rondebosch, which is very central. The City Centre is 10 to 15 minutes away by car, the airport about the same in the opposite direction and our closest shopping mall is Cavendish in Claremont (about 3.5km away).
We are home loving people but enjoy eating out at new restaurants or one of our favorite coffee shops. We have one cat who is pretty independent!
We live in a double story home. Our guest accommodation is downstairs in a twin bedded room with its own bathroom (with shower) adjacent to it. The bedroom has a garden view and you can see the mountain, particularly Devil's Peak.
Outside we have a pool and a braai area. We love the indoor/outdoor feel and are often found enjoying tea on the front verandah. We all speak English but we are curious to try other languages. We have friends all over the world!
We are a 'field hockey family' with both our sons having played competitively.

About the Area
Our home is situated in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town behind Table Mountain. Our neighborhood is around one of the prestigious private schools in Cape Town, Bishops Diocesan College. You will always find people walking their dogs, or runners and cyclists exercising in the area.
We are about 14km from the city, 14km from the airport and 3.5km from the shopping centres in Claremont. The beaches are about 20 to 25 minutes drive away (Muizenberg or Camps Bay).
Rondebosch train station is about 2km away but our boys use Uber to get around.

Vanessa was amazing, so helpful and she went above and beyond to help. She was like a second mum to my boys and the house and facilities were perfect.
Bei den Gardeners zu gastieren bedeutet ein Teil der Familie zu werden...
Vanessa is an angel. She looks after us so well. We will not miss going there again if we visit Cape Town.
