We offer space in historic Victorian houses, on the eccentric Observatory . Our tenants are mainly young people from all over the world, exploring Cape Town to get an authentic experience of the local culture and meet new friends

The space

Rooms are private or shared between two people with both single and double beds available – ask for the combination that suits you! Each room comes with a lock and luggage storage/ closet space available. The houses each have a yard and porch perfect for having a braai (local slang for BBQ!) or enjoying the street view, plus plenty of communal space for hanging out with the other tenants

Free Wifi, laundry facilities, towels provided, shared shower and bathroom, full kitchen stocked with cooking supplies. Our cleaning service scrubs the houses top to bottom twice a week and we can hook you up with fun events and happenings around town

Interaction with guests

As much as you want! You can have full privacy and literally just rent a room from us, or get social with us and the other guests to dive into a full program of dinners, events, travel opportunities, weekend activities, and more. Your experience is up to you

Devonne and david are both just amazing people with warm hearts and friendly approaches,however we were alotted with a different house which was more like a dorm meant for students,As we were a family we found it a little uncomfortable..There was lack of kitchenware and cuttlery and a lack of cleanliness too as the maid was unavailable.I recommend this for young people and students but not for a family holiday.Devonne was however a great help whenever needed and we are thankful for the company.

Everyone in the house was really friendly and inviting- in fact we still spend time together now that I have moved out. Unfortunately I only spent a few nights of my booked stay because I was moving house, but they were wonderful.

David was awesome, he picked us up from the airport and really wanted to show off the beautiful city that is Cape Town. He took us on somewhat of a tour, and then we had lunch together at a cool eatery, and this was all within an hour of arriving there! The house was cool, we made friends with people from all over the world, and ended up spending a lot of time with them. The room was pretty standard and comfortable and all basic amenities were provided. Thanks for the awesome stay David!
