Luxury Self Catering House
Woodstock Cottage in Cape Town
64 Balfour Street

SELF-CATERING VICTORIAN SEMI IN WOODSTOCK, CAPE TOWN

Sleeping a maximum of three, this beautifully furnished, one/two bedroom Victorian cottage is furnished with original art, antiques and mod cons. Full kitchen, bathroom, lounge & courtyard garden. Private, safe & secure. High ceilings, heritage features, shops, eight restaurants & my city bus stop within 200m.

 

The Pumpkin Palace is our wonderful 110 year old Cape Town town house, which we escape to when we need a break from the hotel business in Tulbagh, Cape Winelands. The house is available to rent year round and makes for a very convenient and economic way of experiencing the city. The house features two bedrooms (Queen and a Single), lounge, kitchen, full bathroom (four rooms) with sash windows, wooden floors, high ceilings and stunning Victorian detailing and finishes. My husband and I are art and antique collectors and our Woodstock cottage is filled with some of our most beautiful things, many acquired from our travels around the world.

GUEST ACCESS

If we can not personally meet you in Woodstock, we will leave the keys at one of the restaurants in the road with your name and arrival date attached.

We expect guests to make themselves completely at home and to use everything in the well stocked house.
The kitchen cupboards are stocked with the basic essentials and the complicated luxuries required to whip up a snack or sophisticated meals. Guests are welcome to use any foods in the house (within reason), however the contents of the freezer are out of bounds.

We have extensive book, CD and DVD collections which guests are welcome to enjoy.

Included in your stay is our cleaner of 15 years. Delicia comes once a week to make over the house and can do your laundry as well. She is available more often on request, if required.

We are flexible on dates, although strict on cancellations, so should your plans change, we will gladly allow you to move your dates as long as there is availability.

Guests are welcome to phone me with questions. My neighbour also has keys and can help in emergencies.
