    Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt in dieser Unterkunft für unsere Tage in Kapstadt. Wir hatten ein sauberes Zimmer, ein bequemes Bett und guten WLAN-Empfang. Das Beste an der Unterkunft waren jedoch die Gastgeber. Wir haben den Herren des Hauses zwar nicht kennengelernt aber er bereitet ein sehr gutes, leckeres Frühstück zu mit Ei in allen Variationen und selbst gebackenen Muffins oder Cookies. Die Gastgeberin hat uns für Kapstadt und Südafrika wertvolle Tipps geben können und hat geduldig auf alle unsere Fragen geantwortet. Von unseren insgesamt 8 Unterkünften in Südafrika unser persönlicher Platz 1. Falls wir je wieder nach Kapstadt reisen, ist diese Unterkunft unsere erste Wahl!
