About the Homestay
Are you a student or single traveller needing a comfortable home?..let's talk... Navine's Homestay is situated in Wetton (some say Ottery) in the southern suburbs of Cape Town, on the edge of the Cape Flats. The accommodation is well-equipped for self-catering and is ideal for young people who want to explore Cape Town. A very strictly non-smokers private home, with Homestay, Economy and Budget sections . The home offers good value-pricing, comfort, privacy and security. Secure inside parking available. Also suited to people who prefer to use public transport. Single, comfortable beds are offered in all rooms, except the Scenic double, which is more romantic. The house has three sections: Homestay, Economy and Budget. In the main house (Homestay), there are two separate rooms downstairs. Navine lives upstairs. We share the upstairs living room, which leads to balcony with a view of the the Constantia Winelands. The Economy section has a double room and a single room, both have comfortable 3/4 sized beds. A Budget room with its own toilet/basin is available outside both sections and has a single bed. Secure inside parking is offered with all rooms. Economy and Budget rooms do not have access to Homestay facilities and share a shower, kitchenette, outside dishwash basin and fridge. The area itself is interesting, community-orientated, and you will meet South Africans (and Africans) of all persuasions. We have a lovely Spar supermarket within 5 minutes walk of the house where you can buy everything you need, including cooked food. The area has been very safe, the rooms are quiet and extremely safe ; being Africa, it can get hot.
I've hosted guests from China, Brazil, Angola, Namibia, Germany, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Finland, Japan, Namibia, France, UK, Spain, Italy, South Korea and possibly more... I speak English, also Afrikaans, and a smattering of Thai. Breakfast is self-made by guests, bread, eggs, peanut butter, jam, tea, coffee and perhaps fruit.

About the Area
The home is on the border of Wetton and Ottery, closer to Wetton Circle, which is a transport junction. It lies midway between the Southern Suburbs of the City, and the Cape Flats. This is not a typically touristy area, just ordinary working people. The main forms of public transport are bus and taxi, which are very cheap. They stop running after 8pm or so, after which private taxi has to be used (or your own vehicle). Most guests use Uber taxi services if they want to go out late at night. Public taxis really are easiest and cheapest. A few local night spots are within a short distance for a drink, 5 kilometres or less.
