About Raven's Rest

Raven’s Rest is a self-catering garden flat located in the quiet and leafy Oakridge suburb in the heart of the Constantiaberg valley in Cape Town. The flat is situated on a large pan-handle plot hidden away from any busy roads. The flat is private and set in a scenic garden which is home to squirrels and many birds. We would be delighted to host you as our guests at Raven’s Rest, whether you are on holiday or on a business trip, need a transitional place to stay on a short-term basis or simply need a place of rest and solitude.

Accommodation is best suited for a couple or an individual and consists of a bedroom, lounge, kitchenette, bathroom, and a small patio. The bedroom contains a double bed and overlooks the garden. Bedding and bath towels are provided, and are changed weekly. The bathroom contains both a bath and a shower.

A small lounge adjoins the bedroom and satellite TV, and unlimited wireless internet access are provided. The kitchenette is fully equipped and tea and coffee are provided. The small patio area overlooks the extensive garden, and has braai facilities. Covered and secure parking is available close to the flat. Servicing of the flat is done on a weekly basis for stays of one week or longer.

The flat is on a quiet and separate portion of our residential family home, which is on a large plot of approximately 3000-square metres, surrounded by oak trees and a very old and impressive yellowwood tree. The flat has its own entrance and you will be able to stay in our garden flat without even noticing the residents in our home, if this is what you want.

Your hosts are Trevor and Michelle Owen, would be delighted to welcome you to Raven’s Rest, and would be only too pleased to offer any advice or suggestions for your visit to Cape Town.

Loved the tranquility, security and central location. Only downer was the WiFi signal which was a bit spotty.Would easily recommend this accommodation.

We stayed here for a month and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is spacious well equipped and the security is excellent. The apartment is very quiet due to it's location and we would certainly stay here again The garden is very large with some interesting wildlife. A relaxing place for a short or long stay.

My elderly parents recently stayed at Raven's Rest. They enjoyed the peaceful ambiance and the comfortable accommodation. Thank you for making them feel so welcome and at home. They will be back for future holidays.
