Wonderful stay! Rachel is such a nice person.Very quiet. Very nice place. Perfect location for visiting the Cape Town area (close from the N2 & M3). Enjoy!On se sent comme à la maison! Rachel est très accueillante, petit déj avec une vue panoramique sur cape town. Très bien placé : N2 à 1min pour aller en ville eou à l'aéroport, et M3 à moins d'une minute pour aller vers le acp de bonne espérance. Parfait... :)

I had the pleasure of sharing the main house of Rachel's House for three days, and I can vouch for the home-away-from-home feeling.There was some concern that her two dogs would be a hindrance, but they were so lovable that I threatened to take one back to Ireland with me.For a quiet place to stay close to the city centre, without the confines of a hotel room or single B&B room, I can recommend staying here as I will be doing so again in the future.

I was well looked after and conveniently located for business in the mother city.

Great spot and lovely guest house. I felt well looked after. The place is great and highly recommend it to anyone. Rachel couldn't be nicer. She even regularly emailed by family to let them know how I was doing.
