Once again had a lovely stay at Lorrein's place. It's my go-to when I need a place in the area. The breakfast each morning was great as always, and Lorrein is a wonderful host :)

We hat a WONDERFUL time at Lorrein and Johans home. They created a place you imediately feel welcome at and are such open friendly people. They gave us great advice with things to do in Cape Town. Their dog is amazing and made us smile all the time :). We already miss the view from the balcony and the good talks with everybody.
