The perfect start to my stay in Cape Town (and it could have been much longer!) Loved the balcony and Valerie and Felix were warm and welcoming hosts. Thank you
Valerie and Felix were extremely welcoming hosts. Thank you for allowing me to stay in your home!
Valerie and Felix are lovely hosts with a wonderful home and made me feel part of their family. The location and amenities were perfect for my needs and I could not have had a better stay in Cape Town, thank you.
Valerie is an excellent cook and her meals are relatively inexpensive. If you love dogs she has 4 cute ones!. The only negative I would point out is it is too far from City Centre. Public transport takes 45mins and is easy to access from Main Road. Generally great Hosts.
I spent almost 5 very memorable weeks with Valerie and Felix. I had lots of autonomy, a spacious bedroom and a magnificent view of the mountains. There was plenty of food for breakfast and Valerie graciously did my laundry! The location of the flat is in a beautiful neighbourhood and close to Kenilworth, Wynberg and a nice walk from the Kirstenbosch Garden. I do recommend evening meals with Valerie as she´s a fantastic cook!
I was there for 2 months as I made an internship in Cape Town (Westlake). I recomand this host family without a doubt! I really enjoyed my stay with them.
