There is a spacious lounge for relaxing. French doors lead onto a peaceful and inviting garden to enjoy a meal or sundowners. You have separate accommodation with a separate entrance. Enclosed secure parking in the garage is available.

It is a five-minute walk to Devils Peak Mountain for lovely morning walks along mountain trails also leading to Table Mountain. Ten-minute tp twelve-minutes drive to the popular Camps Bay, Sea Point, and Clifton beaches. It is a two-minute drive to the city center to visit museums, art galleries in Public Gardens. An eight-minute drive to the V and A waterfront, two minutes to the 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.

          Rachel is a welcoming and lovely lady. Stayed 4 nights and we really enjoyed Rachel’s hospitality. Nice self catering b&b with easy access to the city centre, W & A waterfront etc by taxi.
