Guest Facilities and Current Rates


Wanting to share the pleasures of living in a cob home, we have created an Organic B&B, ideal for wholesome holiday accommodation in the beautiful city of Cape Town.

The guest accommodation, with its own private entrance, consists of a spacious triple bedroom with ensuite shower and ablution facilities. The main bed is a luxury queen-size bed, and there is also a single futon bed suitable for an additional adult, which can be opened up into two futons if a family of four wishes to take the room. Linen, curtains, mattresses, towels etc. have all been made from natural and organic or recycled materials. The room features views of the Cape mountains. There is access to the garden (still in early growth, after a few years as mostly piles of sand and clay!) and off-street parking available.






Basic rate for 2014 is R400 per single, R700 per double, R900 for 3 adults (or 4 with extra mattress provided). Organic breakfast is inclusive, see reviews section), this is for the period until September 30th 2014. High season rate from October 2014 is R450 for single (breakfast inclusive), R750 for double, R950 for 3 adults (or 4 as above). Children are half-price, under 2s free. We also offer a discount for students or pensioners - please enquire about this. On Fridays/weekends we also offer a cooked (vegetarian) breakfast option as an alternative, requested at least 24 hours in advance. There is an option for WiFi connection if needed, and the main house does have ADSL. We can give a "no-breakfast discount" but only with at least 2 days notice.




We also have: a laundry service (using a water-saving machine, and eco-friendly detergents), for a small additional charge; at times we can offer a simple family vegetarian supper in the main house (enquire about this possibility, which is not available every night, on arrival). We also plan on having bicycles for hire, to explore the local area, particularly for those guests otherwise travelling by public transport: if you think you would like to use this service, please enquire about this when you book. We can also usually organise an airport transfer service at a better rate than the dedicated transfer companies, as well as guided tours of Cape attractions, with a substantial sustainable/ethical slant - see our Our Tours page.


On occasions, particularly during the South African school holidays, the whole house is available for self-catering accommodation, (though please note that there are two cats in the main house - although the guest area is off-limits to pets). The house and the B&B together can comfortably house up to 10 people and include full kitchen facilities. There is off-street parking for 2 cars in total. This option needs to be specifically applied for and we can tell you what is possible on the dates you are looking at.
