About the Area

Our house is located on the south eastern part, 1.4 km from the City centre.

The Myciti bus station is 150m from our home. Uber and Taxicabs are easily available for access to the city and tours around the Cape Peninsula.

The area, although close to city is very quiet. We are close to the following colleges: Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Oxford English College, EF College, Goodhope English College, EC College and University of Cape Town.

The area is filled with a rich apartheid history of forced human removal and resettlements.

    I spent a Wonderful time with Amina and Moejaahied. The Room was clean and it has everything you Need. And for me, it was new to be careful with the water that i used. I learned a lot about how you can save water. THANK YOU!!!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
