Le quartier

Harfield Village is a popular and well-known community in Claremont. It's close enough to the larger business in Claremont for convenience, but offers a smaller community with a main road lined with excellent restaurants and shops.

Once a year, the main road of Harfield Village, is filled with art and street food with it's annual festival.

The micro-brewery scene is well-represented... and a Harfield beer tastes better when in Harfield.


The train station is a 8-10 minute walk away and links guest to Cape Town central (a few stops away). The opposite direction, the train takes you to seaside exploration, with surfing in Muizenburg, the bohemian life in Kalk Bay and penguins in Simon's Town.

We are a 5 minutes from the hub of Harfield Village with it's coffee shops, bistros and other interesting shops and restaurants.

We're a 15 minute walk from the well-known Cavendish shopping area with a range of high-end shops.

We're a 15 minute drive from the center of Cape Town. We recommend Uber Taxi as a reliable and cost-effective way for getting around.

They seem nice but I only met them for a second. There is a baby in the house that doesn't sleep through the night. The area was perfect for me but I only stayed two nights of the 5 because I couldn't sleep with the noise.

Réponse de John :
Hi Brittany, another guest is visiting in the room next to yours for fertility treatment and has a 1 year old. So sorry you were disturbed, we didn't hear a thing... It would have been wonderful if you'd taken the time to speak to us, so you could have talked through any difficulties you had. We tried knocking once when you were in but had no response, and never saw you again. We understand that you'd made alternative accommodation arrangements with your friend down the road, and think you were somewhat upset at not being able to cancel your accommodation last minute. Our policy is that within 5 days of check in, there's a 100% cancelation fee. We did happily reduce the nights stay and reduce the costs for you. Hope greatly, however, if you're ever in the area again that you'll pop in for a cup of tea with us so that we have the opportunity to connect and get to know you.

John and his family were most hospitable and their listing is accurate. On arrival, we were given a run-down on the local amenities (all within walking distance) and places of interest (Arderne Gardens is definitely worth a visit). The large rooms were clean, comfortable and well-appointed with interesting and beautiful artwork displayed. This pleasant home in a very quiet neighbourhood offers exceptional value for money. Thank you, John, Rowena and Ava!

John, Rowan and their little new addition Ava, are delightful hosts. The property is well located on a quiet street in a lovely serene area. John and Rowan were helpful in offering suggestions of places to go, the room was immaculately clean with all the necessary items for a guest interested in self-catering accommodation. The property is beautifully decorated with Johns' artworks, giving it an eclectic lovely home-away-from-home feel. Great for art lovers and peaceful souls.

On arrival the host was waiting for us and made us settle in well. We had access to all the amenities as per our expectation. John was very helpful and assisted us wth all the information we needed. For those wanting a taste of the Metrorail service , its just 5 min away. The place is quiet and serene , crime free as there is a police station just a few hundred metres away.

Staying with John and Rowen was an enriching experience. They are warm and open-hearted people and I felt very comfortable in their presence and in their home. On my first night They took me on a walk around the neighbourhood and we had interesting conversations about art and other issues.

I'm a ceramic artist and well-known Cape Town figure - the rooms in my B&B are named after some of the giants in the pottery world, upon which my dwarf-self now stands.

I'm also known for being an inventor. It's my joy and pleasure to create space for visitors to my gallery, studio and B&B to enjoy thoughts and flights of fancy.

I can't live without porcelain clay, pots of exotic tea and new ideas. And I'll regale you with stories of the unknown, unusual world facts and advice on just about anything under the sun.

I'm well connected with the sub-cultures of Cape Town - should you have an extraordinary social needs, I am able to make an introduction :)

Speak to me about my Cape Town ceramic tours, we visit the studios of some of Cape Town's finest potters. Or for street art join a Coffee Beans Route's tour, which I often lead.

I look forward to your arrival...
