About our home

Our home is from the turn of the last century and was renovated a couple of years ago. It really is filled with so much character (high ceilings and large open rooms) and has a lovely feel throughout.

We have 4 bedrooms but three of them are children's rooms so with toys :-) - we have one large main bedroom with king sized extra length bed, one large room with double bed and then two children's rooms (one with bunk beds - one with girls small bed). So can sleep 6 comfortably but 2 would be in bunks! :-) Please see photos.

We also have a private study out of the way downstairs if you do need an extra room.

We're based in Green Point which is 5 minutes away from Cape Town centre and walking distance to the new stadium and Green Point Urban park. It's an amazing area where you can walk to buy milk or grab a coffee in Giovanni's (an institution!) and only a 5 minute drive from the V&A Waterfront. It takes about 7 mins or so to get into town or only 5 mins from the nearest beach in Sea Point (or 13 mins from the famous Clifton beaches).

We also have two dogs who would normally stay in the home whilst you're there - we have a daily cleaner and dog walker so you wouldn't have to do anything but if you are scared of dogs we can make a plan and ask our dog walker to have them over your time - please let us know about this.

We're currently looking for June / July swaps in Europe and London at Xmas 2018.

We also have a home on the Arabella Golf Estate in Kleinmond (Hermanus) if that could be of more interest. Photos to follow or please ask for more info.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Green Point is really well situated if you'd like to visit the Cape - we're in the middle of the Atlantic Seaboard so very close to all the beaches and promenade for walking or only minutes from the V&A Waterfront for shopping and the CBD.
Being so close to the N1 and N2 means you can visit all the wine farms very easily and Somerset West / Stellenbosch etc is only 45 minutes away.

Green Point is home to the famous World Cup stadium (now used for concerts and rugby 7's for example) and only 5 minutes walk from the house or you could stroll to the Urban park with the kids and Mouille Point for a nice walk along the front.

From our house you can walk to Woolworths or Spar for food shopping or simply nip down to the local pizzeria's and bakery's only 5 minutes away - it's super central and a lovely feel to the area.
