Hi and Welcome.

We are back after our long winter holiday

We're an owner run guest house in the suburb of Observatory, Cape Town - below the towering Devil's Peak as it runs down to the Liesbeek River.

Just out of the city centre, yet close to all the major highways, train station, UCT  (walking distance to Groote Schuur Hospital, UCT Medical School, The River Club and Black River Park)
