about us

Our cottage is available for short-to-medium term stays from a minimum of five nights.

It is situated in the best area of Observatory, within a five minute walk of the train station, from which regular trains depart in the direction of Rondebosch (for the University of Cape Town) or Cape Town. It is also situated very close to the route of the “Jammie Shuttle”, the free public transport for UCT students and academics from the areas around UCT up to Upper Campus and Middle Campus.

Observatory is, of course, the suburb directly adjacent to Groote Schuur Hospital, both the academic hospital servicing UCT academics, as well as the regional public hospital for the peninsula.

A private taxi from the cottage to Cape Town would take approximately eight minutes, outside of rush hour, and cost approximately R80.00. We recommend a local, inexpensive and very efficient taxi service, Elite Taxis, telephone number 021 447 9003, website www.elitetaxis.co.za.
