My place is close to the famous Boulders Beach, set on the hill, facing the ocean. Cape Town is 50 min drive away. . You’ll love my place because of the peace and tranquility that the location offers. I want my guests to feel like they are visiting friends or family. I don't really like house rules. My aim is to really make you feel special and to give you a memorable experience.
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and furry friends (pets).
Born in France about 48 years ago, I left my birth country for the UK at the age of 26 to learn English properly. After 2 years I decided to move to South Africa where I had 10 magnificent years. I helped Franck Dangereux run La Colombe restaurant for many years. Then love took me back to London where I got married. My partner and I are now separated but friends. I think I was always longing for a return to sunny South Africa which happened this year in April. We purchased a house in Simon's Town to turn into a Guesthouse. I always loved the idea of opening my doors to travellers and potentially meeting amazing people. I have been renovating, furnishing and decorating the house since then. I am now about to open my doors. When I dreamed this guesthouse, I imagined evenings with friends mingling with guests - each of whom at that magical moment just before they arrive hold all the promise and possibility of new stories and fresh friendships - and even neighbours who've simply decided there is something better cooking next door... This is intended to be a real guest house, not the loveless, over-stylised impersonal service of a boutique hotel. This is my home, where the door is always open and there's always space at the table for one more. Privacy is important and solitude respected, but there's also conversation and company on tap.
I try to have as few house rules as possible in order to enable my guests to relax and enjoy themselves obviously within reason and as long as others and my home are treated with respect. I have tried to make the house look beautiful but still inviting and comfortable.
