Beautiful Victorian house with pool
- Indoor fireplace
|Address||Rhine Road, 8005 Cape Town, South Africa|
Nestled in between the slopes of Signal Hill and the beachfront promenade, you can go for a lovely hike up the hill, a leisurely stroll along the beach promenade or simply relax within the comforts of your home away from home.
The house is appr. 140m2, has a courtyard and pool (5x2,5m) to the front and a patio to the back. The house is ideal for 4-6 people but is also perfectly suitable for a couple on a cosy getaway. Please note that there is only one bathroom.
There are 2 double bedrooms on the lower level, one facing the front terrace and pool and the master bedroom towards the back. A dining room with 6-seater table is also facing the pool. You can view Lion’s head while having your dinner. All rooms on the ground floor have high ceilings, wooden floors and are all painted white, giving it a fresh, contemporary Summery beach cottage look. At the heart of the house is the open plan kitchen and living room, with an original Victorian fireplace. From here, you can access the back courtyard, the bathroom, the upper level and the bedrooms on the ground floor. The bathroom has lots of natural light and has a bathtub and a shower. The kitchen is fully equipped (microwave, gas stove, electric oven, coffee maker etc. Unfortunately, there is no dishwasher). The back courtyard contains a little seating area, perfect for BBQ’s (or braai’s, as they are called in South Africa). There is an utility/laundry room outside as well. The washing machine and a tumble dryer are in here.
The loft bedroom is on the upper level and features a queen size bed. The ceilings are quite low but it is a beautiful space flooded with natural light and offers a wonderful place to sleep directly beneath the stars with views of Lions head and a glimpse of the ocean.
After a great day out in beautiful Cape Town, come home and relax by the pool, sip sundowners on the front terrace or do it the South African way and fire up the braai (BBQ) in the back courtyard.
Guests have full use of the house for the entire period of their stay. Free wifi is included.
The preferred check-in time is 13:00, and check-out at 11:00 however we are quite flexible, just please just let us know in advance if you arrive or depart before 8am and after 8pm.
Interaction with guests:
Upon check in, we will provide you with a full list of our favorite things to do and places to see in and around Cape Town. Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula offer an amazing variety of wonderful things to do. If you have any questions, we are of course, always available via phone or email to help you.
Almost everything in town is less than 10 minutes away by car. However, Sea Point is probably the only area in Cape Town, where a car is not even necessary. We would, however, recommend renting one for those long road trips to the wine estates and other areas outside the city center.
A great variety of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, shops, beaches, jogging tracks, hiking trails, parks, public swimming pools are all within easy walking distance. Beautiful Sea Point promenade is a 3 minutes walk away. For the adventure seekers, sea kayaking and paragliding can all be found in the neighbourhood. The Lions Head hiking path starts a short walk away and is a must, with stunning panoramic views over the city bowl and Camps Bay. Green Point with its great park, golf course and World Cup stadium, the lively colourful Waterkant and Bokaap area, vibey Long Street with its restaurants and buzzing nightlife and the famous V&A Waterfront are all close by and can be easily reached with the MyCity Bus or a nice walk along the promenade. The nearest bus stop is just 2 minutes from our doorstep.
Famous Clifton Beaches, Camps Bay with its white sandy beach and many seaside restaurants, stunning Llandudno and even quaint Hout Bay are easily accessible by bus. If you can’t decide what to do, just hop on Cape Town’s Hop-on-Hop-off tourist bus. Both, the red and the blue line stops a 5 minute walk away and will take you on a tour along the entire peninsula, stopping at famous landmarks such as Cape Point and Groot Constantia (the oldest wine estate in South Africa).
Again, we will provide you with an extensive list of our favourite restaurants, bars, picnic spots, wine estates, parks, beaches etc in our neighborhood and around Cape Town. We wish you endless fun exploring the many great sites and local flavors Cape Town has to offer.

Reviews of this property
schönes kleines , sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus. Sehr sauber ,sehr gepflegt. Netter Empfang durch Melvin (:-) .
Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und würden es jederzeit weiterempfehlen!
Es ist ein sehr schönes Haus mit Pool. Die Bilder entsprachen genau dem vorgefundenen Zustand. Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Lage ist optimal für Excursionen rund um Kapstadt. Sehr gerne Wieder !!!!!!!!
Janine war eine sehr nette Gastgeberin. Vom ersten Kontakt an hat sie immer sehr schnell auf Anfragen reagiert und war immer sehr freundlich.
In Kapstadt wurden wir von Janines Mutter empfangen, da Janine selbst zur Zeit in Berlin lebt. Auch hier alles bestens, sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Im Haus gab es als Überraschung noch ein kleines, leckeres Willkommenspaket und hübsche Blumen. Ausführliche persönlichen Tipps von Janine gehören auch dazu. Für den Pool gibt es ein Sicherheitsnetz, was uns mit unseren zwei Kleinen doch sehr beruhigt hat. Das Haus selbst ist sehr stylish eingerichtet, in sehr guter Lage und mit Blick auf den Lion's Head. Es fehlt an Nichts.
Ohne Bedenken würde ich die Unterkunft und Janine als Gastgeberin Freunden empfehlen und gerne für unseren nächsten Aufenthalt in Kapstadt wiederkommen.
