This is a unique house! Lots of people say that, but in our case it is absolutely true. Ruimzicht (yes, the house has a name) means beautiful view. It was built in 1895 by the contractor of the Cape Town City Hall. The Cape Town City Hall is internationally recognizable as the building from which Nelson Mandela gave his first public address as a free man. The architect, a corrupt colonial par excellence, double-ordered many of the decorative features of the City Hall and used them in his private residence. We have marble fire places, internal columns, Edwardian tiles and eccentric flourishes throughout. The house is also old, with some cracks and lots of character.

This used to be home of two South African painters and printers, who are collected in the National Gallery and many Provincial Galleries. We have incredible art on every wall throughout the house.

Your private space is your room and your bathroom (not ensuite, through the kitchen, about 12 meters from the bedroom). You will also be able to access the entire downstairs floor with a sitting room, billiard room, dining room, kitchen, mini-gym, and laundry room. You will have access to the garden and the downstairs front patio (complete with views of Table Mountain and Lion's Head). The garden is particularly special with lots of food and fruit trees, abundantly blooming roses, a Mexican-tiled pool, sitting areas and hammocks. It is very green, lush, overgrown and inviting.

We also rent out a second room and bathroom as well. Many of our guests enjoy teaming up with their neighbors to rent cars, tour and socialize.

Your hosts are happy to spend as much or as little time with you as you want or need. You just let us know. Cups of tea and games of pool are always welcome!

Tamboerskloof is a very walkable part of Cape Town. You can walk to most major tourist attractions, restaurants and bars from our spot. There's also great mountain hiking (literally) out the front door. Additionally, the MyCiti bus runs past the house and will take you to attractions slightly further afield: Table Mountain (3 min), the beaches of Camps Bay (10 min) and Hout Bay (30 min), V&A Waterfront and Robben Island (10 min).

We have trellised grape vines over the outdoor patio, from which we make our house wine. It's not going to win any awards, but upon your arrival, we will insist you sample our domestic product!

Wonderful hosts and gorgeous historical house. You would have a hard time finding a more hospitable stay in Cape Town. Ideal for immediately feeling 'at home', with some of the hottest restaurants and bars a walk away - this is a true gem not to be missed! A million thanks to Erin and Leo for their warm welcome, amazing tips, homemade wine (!) and bona fide generosity.

When you hesitate to book this accomodation, don't! It's a really special place on an awesome location. Eric and Leo are wonderfull; always friendly and full of good recommondations about things to do or visit in town. It's really nice that the house is located in a fairly quiet street, while you are on lively Kloofstreet within 5 minute walk and within 10 minutes on busy longstreet. Perfect to explore Cape Town!
