Our light-filled 2 bedroom apartment on the side our house has its own entrance. It offers a quiet stay in an established garden with a pool and braai area with spectacular views of the city, Table Mountain and Lions Head. We are conveniently located within 2 min walk to a MyCiti bus stop or 10-15 min walk to Kloof Street with shops and restaurants. Hiking routes on Table Mountain to the cable car and Lions Head start 50m from our doorstep. We have a friendly Vizsla dog called Dora.
The apartment is part of a mid-century modern house that was originally built in 1968. It is called Berghütte, which means "Mountain Hut", being situated on the slopes of Table Mountain. The design and building materials that were used, are simple i.e pine ceilings and sealed brick floors in the living areas and wooden parquet flooring in the bedrooms. The house faces North and the facade is made of glass and timber letting in lots of light throughout the day.
The main bedroom is very spacious with an extra length queen size bed and a lounger chair as well. The second bedroom is smaller with a double bed. Both bedrooms have cupboard space available and have leafy outlooks. Fresh bed linen and towels are provided and replaced once a week for guests staying longer than 7 days.
The bathroom has a shower over the bath. Complimentary hand soap, shower gel/shampoo and toilet paper is supplied.
The kitchen is cute and compact and is equipped with the basics i.e stove, oven, fridge, kettle, toaster, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. Should you wish to do some washing/ ironing, it can be arranged.
The apartment has its own outdoor seating area overlooking the pool and has a pretty view of Lion's Head mountain to the west - a perfect setting for an outdoor meal or sundowners. There is a weber barbeque (braai) for our guests' exclusive use here too.
The apartment has its own outdoor seating area and is closest to the pool whereas the main house is closer to the lawn, braai area and view terrace overlooking the city but we are happy to share these spaces with our guests.
