Description

Perfectly positioned between Muizenberg beachfront, Muizenberg Mountain, the Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve and the Muizenberg village, this private room in an artist family residence can accommodate one or two people in homely comfort.

This private room is one of 5 rooms in a spacious art deco building in the heart of Muizenberg. Two of the rooms are used as studio and work spaces equipped with easels and painting materials. My Mother and your host (Mary-Anne) has a masters in Fine Art (painting) and I have my masters in sculpture/installation. The house is full of artworks and art projects. My brother (Leo) uses one of the two studio spaces to work on his animations while the other studio is suitable for painting and sculpture work. This beautifully maintained art deco building is warm and cosy with everything a traveler needs in terms of homely comforts and entertainment.

As our guest you have access to your generous sized private room with high ceilings and Lovely large windows. You will also have access to a bathroom down the hall with a bath and shower head as well a separate toilet. There is an outside shower that you can use in addition to the indoor bathrooms. You will have access to the studio in the front of the house as well as the kitchen where you can use the stove, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster and dishwasher to prepare food or clean up after yourself. you will have access to the dining area where you can host small groups of people or have a visitor for tea (provided you check first), you also get to use the Lounge and Garden complete with beautiful Bonsai canopy trees, pretty flowers, fresh herbs for cooking and a hammock to lounge in. The outside area is shaded with a big table and chairs for eating at in the summer or entertaining friends. In addition you may use the fish braai to cook delicious fresh fish from nearby markets.

I am presently writing up my doctorate in Art History in Grahamstown but do visit my family regularly. Leo is an animator who gets to collaborate with cool local artists like Andy Mason so there is generally a nice creative buzz in the house. I come home to visit when I can and love to tutor people in mould making and metal sculpture work. my mom is a semi-retired art teacher with 30 years experience teaching in different mediums to a range of skill levels and your on-site art teacher should you like to make use of her services.

Muizenberg is home to surfers, musicians, artists, volunteer workers and innumerable interesting and innovative individuals. Full of friendly relaxed and engaged people who generally look out for each other and the local environment.

Our positioning is so fantastic that one can manage without a car or private transport. We are situated less than a km from the Muizenberg train station, less than 300 m from the beachfront, local shops and the Muizenberg village. We are within walking distance of doctors, the Rustenberg pharmacy, a Checkers supermarket and local road side markets selling delicious, cheap fruit and veg, not mention a local put- put course, waterslide, and range of surf shops offering surf lessons, great little restaurants like Yoffi Falafel, Blonde and Beard or Knead Bakery and the local watering hole Lagerchinos.

There is generally a high police profile in the part of Muizenberg where our house is located and so crime levels are reasonably low. despite this, guests are advised to take care with their personal belongings and take care to be alert and watchful when walking in crowded or deserted places.

Die Lage der Unterkunft ist wie beschrieben super! In einer ruhigen Straße gelegen und trotzdem zentral, ist der Strand fußläufig zu erreichen. Die Küche ist in die Jahre kommen und die Sauberkeit wird, wie von dem Gastgeber gewünscht, selbst nur bedingt erfüllt. Die Unterkunft erinnert ein wenig an eine WG. Die Terrasse ist zum Innenhof gelegen und lädt zum verweilen ein, wenn Hund und Katze nicht ihre Spuren auf Tisch und Boden hinterlassen würden. Der Bruder "Leo" der Gastgeberin ist sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und kommunikativ! Wer keine Lust hat auswärts zu essen, wird sehr lecker von ihm nach Absprache für ein paar Rant bekocht.

My brother and I had an extremely beautiful time in Muizenberg and Cape Town. Not only is the location amazing for surfing, but they were also very welcoming and told us about a lot of interesting local stuff. We loved it and will definitely come back. Can wholeheartedly recommend it!

Rachel and her family were wonderful hosts. Her mom Marianne was very helpful making sure I was settled and had what I needed. She let me join her for a trip to the grocery market only a few blocks from the house so I could get some food for my stay, and then Rachel walked with me around the beachfront area so I could check out the restaurants. The bedroom is beautiful, with wonderful fresh beach breezes that come through the open windows and the outdoor shower is a great way to refresh after a day of traveling! Though Mutzenberg is a bit far from Cape Town proper, it is in a beautiful area and a great location to explore both the city of Cape Town and the beaches surrounding Mutzenberg in the south. I would definitely recommend staying here!

My request was quite short notice, but the hosts Maryanne and her son Leo, made a plan to accept my friend who needed somewhere to stay near to me, and they were very nice and welcoming and made us feel comfortable. We loved the dog Napoleon... thanks Leo & Maryanne :) My friend would have stayed longer but felt she wanted to move to CT CBD.
