My husband and I haven't lived in Cape Town for a number of years as we have been moving around a lot. So the house is not currently a lived in home and is more set up for airbnb or a house swap. It is more sparsely decorated and furnished but should have everything you need and it includes a housekeeper twice per week if you want it. If we do end up swapping I'd be so happy to fill your time in CT and surrounds with amazing recommendations if you wish!

Der Raum

The house itself is a very beautiful well restored Victorian from 1903 - the house is a National Monument and so the facade is protected by the state. It is filled with tiles imported from Italy over 100 years ago and has all the character you could ask for. The earlier settlers built these houses to stay cool in the summer, which means thick walls and smaller bay windows. Some rooms get great morning light and some good afternoon light but it was not designed to be a very bright house. The beauty in a Victorian is different to a modern-day minimal space. The house has two fireplaces which work. A great farm-style kitchen with a large gas stove and oven. The backyard is very private and very green and beautiful. There are 4 bedrooms each with a queen sized bed, so plenty of accommodation for friends or a whole family. But one of the greatest things about the house is its location - you can walk everywhere and get your morning flat white from the shopping mall right next door. Despite being in the middle of the city it is quiet and private. There is parking for two cars tandem off street.


No stairs and the house has a padlock and keybox situation with 4 sets of keys available.


The house comes with a maid a lovely Malawian lady named Sipiwe on a Tuesday and a Friday - she can come or if you prefer your privacy she does not have to come. There is also no wifi but you can get amazing data packages with Cell C for very cheap and hot spot off your phone. There is also no laundry on site but there is a laundry service within 400m from the house.

The neighborhood is walking distance from the popular Kloof Street, Long Street, downtown is right there. Amazing restaurants and shops all within walking distance. There is public transport from right outside and you are a 10-minute drive from the beaches, 5 minutes from the mountains with amazing hikes and and and...


There is a bus service, but generally Uber is very cheap in SA and very good. You can also rent a car as that is also very cost effective.

My husband Jon and I are digital nomads and move around the world quite a lot. We own a beautiful Victorian home in the center of Cape Town (it was built in 1903 and has all the charm and character imaginable). It is an amazing base to explore Cape Town as it's as central as it gets. We have it on air nb while we are away and thought wouldn't it be great to try out a house swap!
