Ten minute drive to the popular Camps Bay, Sea Point and Clifton beaches. It is a two minute drive to the city centre to visit museums, art gallery in Public Gardens. An eight minute drive to the V and A waterfront, two minutes to highway leading to other tourist attractions. Rachel's Home from Home is centrally situated for all tourist needs. Please note: No Credit cards accepted at this establishment.Due to the severe drought Cape Town is having, we are in a crisis situation and Cape Town will soon be running out of water. Also that 55,000 homes in Cape Town including B&B establishments have been given water management devices where their water only comes out with a trickle because of their high water bill and many have been issued with ZAR10,000 fines for over usage and I do not want the same to happen to my establishment. So please do be careful with the usage of water.

The privacy, quietness and security were above average. The closeness with easy access to all centres was also very good.
