Lavender cottage is close to the city center, beaches, tourist attractions, table mountain, the V&A waterfront, restaurants and dining, art and culture as well as the airport.. We are a mere 10 minute Uber taxi ride to trendy Woodstock and Observatory. You’ll love my place because of the private secluded garden. The cottage is private, light, bright and sunny. It is a charming, comfortable and cozy space. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

Der Wohnraum

The cottage was created by Charles and I to offer guests a relaxing space with a small but beautiful garden to enjoy eating outside el fresco and cooking on the barbecue. We created the garden and pond and included a lot of wrought iron features. It is a cozy, comfortable and sunny space which is completely private and seperate from our home. It is tastefully furnished and decorated. There is a sunny lounge, dining and kitchen area. A door leads into a passage with a walk in wardrobe and en suite bathroom with shower, basin and toilet. The bedroom is light and sunny with a charming bay window and door which opens into the garden.

Zugang für Gäste

You have your own remote control to open the automatic gates and parking behind the gates is provided for one vehicle. You open a garden gate and enter the cottage through double doors. You have your own private garden which is for your use only. The cottage is completely seperate from the main house.

Interaktion mit Gästen

I love interacting with my guests. I am always available to offer advise and suggestions. I am happy to host my guests for a Braai (barbecue) if they so wish, and am happy to get to know them and accompany them on trips or outings if they wish.
Should my guests prefer their privacy I am very accommodating of their needs and desires.

The place was nice enough. There was fresh fruit, yoghurt, milk and spring water for our consumption as well as tea and coffee. For the same price you could get a lot more in terms of location/privacy in Cape Town. The host however, was somewhat intrusive. She felt the need to 'check on us' far too frequently, often catching us at inappropriate times. She had my number. She could've called. From listening to her mobilise her whole family against a poor rat she found in her house late at night while we were trying to sleep to her snide comment about us needing to tidy up before we left. We were in the middle of packing. Obviously the place was going to be a mess. Besides, this was advertised as a private apartment. It was none of your business. The cherry on top came at check out. After making sure that I knew that she was inconvenienced by our early check out she proceeded to meticulously inspect the apartment while we were trying to get ready, turning on all the appliances and counting the plates. It was offensive and degrading. On finding a small mechanism of the ancient dustbin broken (it was working the night before) she demanded I give her money before I left. There was no professionalism or an attempt to resolve the issue in a mature manner. After explaining that I had no cash on hand (I was about to catch an international flight) she resorted to numerous threats over a dustbin that was old and not made of gold. I feel that attempting to charge Airbnb guests for general wear and tear on old objects in the apartment is unreasonable.I'm sure she can buy a dustbin with the $500+ I gave her to stay at her place. In conclusion, we were made to feel as if we were inconveniencing Sharon during our stay by giving her money to stay at her 'private' apartment. Sharon, I do not mean to give you a bad review, just an honest one. For this is what Airbnb is founded upon.

Firstly the cell phone number provided by AirB&B when phoned had a voice recording indicating that the number did not exist. I had to put my whole day on hold awaiting your arrival which i felt was inconsiderate, and was an indication of the type of person you are. If trying to ascertain if your guests have slept comfortably, need anything or if you can assist in some way is considered intrusive then I'm guilty as charged. As for, at "inappropriate" times i timed my visits when you were here. My previous guests appreciated my advise on what to see and do around Cape Town. I did pop by a total of three times, twice during the week and once the night prior to your departure to tell you check out was at 11am. It was at this time that i also asked about breakages and damages to which you replied "It's all good". I have to wonder though if i had not popped by to indicate the check out time, when exactly it was that you intended to tell me you had to depart at 7am, or were you just planning to knock on the door to wake me, so i could let you off the property? As for your early departure inconveniencing me, i got up at 4am to drive my previous guests Cece and Alex to the airport. The fact that i felt a need to ask you to please tidy up before departure is an indication of what a state the lounge/kitchen area was in with plates piled with left overs, pizza boxes with left overs, bin overflowing,(Probably why it broke all by itself) dishes and glasses everywhere, all a clear indication that no washing up etc had been done for a week. Leaving the kitchen in this state will attract flies and ants. The state of the kitchen had nothing whatsoever to do with your packing. I pride myself on keeping my two units spotlessly clean and would go so far as to say i am meticulous in replacing anything broken or damaged immediately, in point of fact i replaced the dinner service as well as a set of glasses prior to your arrival. On the morning of departure i went into the kitchen area and checked to see if the bin had been emptied and the lid fell to the ground. I asked what happened here, the bin is broken. Your first reaction was to claim you knew nothing about it, and the second was to say yes it's broken but not to claim ownership of the breakage. I said i can't use this stainless steel pedal bin (Which is not OLD) I'll have to throw it away and i did suggest that a compensation was due. Your girlfriend at this stage became rude saying "All of R10 damage" and implied i should repair it. You agreed a compensation was due and proceeded to take the last of your belongings to the car. When you returned you informed me that you had no cash and i responded by saying then we'll need to sort this out via AirB&B, you then suggested i take your email address and we'd resolve it via email. I obliged by getting a pen and paper and writing down your email address, i however was fully aware that you had absolutely no intention of sorting anything out. If saying we should resolve it through AirB&B is seen as a threat I'm not sure, as that is all i suggested, and in point of fact the only course of action open to me. There is no other way for me to threaten you!!!! I think what was offensive and degrading was that you failed to notify me of the breakage, placed the lid on the bin in such a way that it appeared undamaged, and hoped to leave prior to me discovering your dishonesty! I had pointedly asked about damages, as i do all guests, and you'd pointedly denied any. When caught out you said it must have broken all by itself during the night!!! I at all times behaved in a professional and mature manner which i cannot say for either of you. You arrived at my premises on New Year's day at 11am in the morning, both drunk, with your girlfriend's head hanging out of the car window vomiting all over the car door. If you bothered to read the house rules you would know that there is another unit on the property, as well as my home, so how you behave is important. Paying for an AirB&B space does not give you license to abuse it. It was your private space which you were left to enjoy, but what goes on in my cottage is very much my business, i own it and it is i who picks up the bill for repairs etc. It was very clear that all you wanted was a place to crash as you were in Cape Town to party! Renting an AirB&B space is not a license to treat the contents in whatever way you wish, there is still the rule of common respect for others belongings. Placing surf boards and wet suits in the lounge against furniture is not respectful behaviour. There was an incident the night before your departure with my feral cats who brought a MOUSE not a RAT into my home, and we did make some noise (Myself, and my two house guests) not my family, trying to catch it, for which i apologize. This was however an isolated incident which only happened once. Far from being honest, which judging from your conduct you clearly are not, you fully intended to give me a bad review Michael, in retaliation to my honest review, written before yours.

I am a warm, friendly and helpful person. I enjoy entertaining my friends and family at home, as both my partner Charles and i enjoy cooking. I love baking and gardening as well. We enjoy long walks on either the beach or in the forest or on the mountain. My home is my sanctuary, and i am a bit of a home body as i enjoy my own company. I can easily lose myself in a book, and have been known to sit up all night reading. I can however let down my hair and kick up my heels, to become the life and soul of a party. Being creative is like breathing for me, i am always busy with some project or other. I am adventures and am passionate about travelling and seeing the world and experiencing people from different cultures and countries. I am a risk taker and believe we are never too old to learn. I am spontaneous and fun loving. I am a Louise Hay Heal your Life teacher and run weekend workshops and sessions, as well as a Montessori teacher, and my partner Charles is an accredited Table Mountain guide. Charles is extremely relaxed, easy going and laid back.
