Charmaine's apartment is as beautiful, fabulous and central as they come! She is also a wonderfully spirited and lovely person, which makes for a great host!
The views- from the living, bedrooms and kitchen- are absolutely spectacular from sun-up to sun-down; we couldn't get enough of them! The space is very comfortable for two people, but would also nicely accommodate four adults. The furnishings- from kitchen appliances to linens- add to the suite's beauty and efficiency; Charmaine's designer touch can be seen, felt and smelled (fresh flowers, amazing candles) in every inch of the magical space she's created. Our cleaning lady, Rose, and the security manager, Josie, became acquaintances and we found ourselves chatting and sharing stories.
Charmaine was out of town during our stay; however, because we were already in Cape Town, she met with us for coffee and chats at local spot and then walked us to her place to give us a tour of the apartment and building and explain some general housekeeping information. We'd initially booked her other flat, but when she learned that we'd been bumping around and would have to find another rental for a few nights before moving into her place, she didn't hesitate... once we established trust- to offer her personal apartment as an option.
Charmaine is a super host and her place is amazing. I'd stay there again!
Thanks for creating such a beautiful space and making us feel at home.
