    Mr Brian and his wife are very friendly with their host
    I was there for 7 days and I enjoyed a lot.
    His wife is a good English teacher. She was my teacher for a week.
    I hope see them again.

    This place was the greatest start to our African adventure. For the first day our host was very good in giving directions and meeting us. Our room had a nice bed and temperature. Every morning we had a good break-fast and at night good meal as dinner and they were very kind. Best of all our last day took pictures and drop us airport. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Capetown, South Africa.

    The best stay in whole SA trip. They're down to earth and welcome for anyone traveling around Capetown, helpful for whatever you do. Rooms and houses are really clean. Only 10min from city center area so you can avoid loudness of city and chilling w locals!

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?

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.
