We had a weird private room with our own bidet. The grounds are quite nice. It's very convenient to the airport but hard to get to, since the directions on the website are wrong.

The hosts were charming. They also put a lot of focus on green materials and facilities, which is great.

The location is gorgeous. The kitchen is clean and well-equipped. There are lots of nearby activities. They have a fire pit and a nice porch, so you can sit out in the evening and look at the stars. My only complaint is that they lock the main house at 10 pm, including the kitchen.

We had room 1, which sleeps 3 and has a private balcony from which we could see Table Mountain. The room was clean and nicely-furnished -- antique furniture, flat-panel TV, fridge, etc.! There was a bathtub but no shower. They advertise "airport transfers" but they don't have an email address listed and it's impossible to call since the phone is located in the bar -- they could never hear me and would just hang up. The manager, Bumper, was quite rude to us.
