Lovely secure place in Cape Town! I could not imagine that it is possible to sleep in Cape Town with the gate open at night! The area is not crowded as other places in CT and Auntie has parrots and friendly dogs for those who love animals! And ooh, to the ladies, the kitchen is well equiped, all the electronics and utensils are there for you to use, as for the guys, free fast wifi is available to stream the sport of your choice online :-). The area is also close to many other amenities and it is easy to access the major roads from this location.
