Separate entrance self-catering garden studio in wind-free Sea Point. Central to all the attractions but peaceful & quiet. You can be a stones throw away from a walk on the mountain and a few 100m from the entertainment and restaurants on Main Road and the Beach front/promenade.
Private, peaceful yet only minutes walk to the restaurants, cafe's, deli's, yoga centres, supermarkets, clubs and also Sea Point- beaches and parks (with outdoor gym). Also only a few houses away from a mountain walking trail up Signal Hill.
This garden studio is below my house patio but is separate and private. It has its own patio area, albeit it on the ground level. My property is one of the few in this road that has not yet been renovated so the outside is older but the inside has been freshly redone.

Our position is super central to restaurants, beaches, Lions Head, movies, art, Waterfront and all other Atlantic Seaboard and Cape Town City Centre attractions. Signal Hill is directly accessible from our road.
To travel a bit further out, different forms of public transport is available from the 4 main Sea Point arteries (Ocean View Drive, Highlevel Road, Main Road and Beach Road) which are all only few blocks down from where we are. These can also quickly get you the few km's to Cape Town Centre to investigate the artistic, creative city we have, with its variety of cultural experiences. I prefer to use Uber (always better because you don't have to keep an eye on your watch) and the cost is usually around R40 - R50 between town and Sea Point. Uber, taxi or rental car can be used to go and see the picture perfect places based in the country side, like the wineroutes (all 1 hour to 90 min's away) with it's massive range of award winning restaurants, or to visit the coastal regions.
You have your own entrance to the property. The path leads past the back of the main house through garden and backyard. In front of my house, there are 14 steps leading up from the drive way to the main house level and then at the back of the main house, 10 steps down to the studio again. You and I will have to be the porters of your luggage.
As the garden studio does not have a convection oven, or if you plan to cook an elaborate meal, please arrange with me if you want to use the main house kitchen, you are more than welcome!
Guests prefer to use Uber, Taxify, Taxi or rental cars to get back home because the hills in Sea Point are quite steep. An Uber in Sea Point area would typicially cost around R25.

Otros aspectos destacables
The street name is actually UPPER Deane Road (as it's the upper, mountain side of Deane Road) but many GPS programs recognise it only as Deane Road.
This studio is located below my house patio but is a separate and private unit. It has a private entrance and its own patio area, albeit it on the ground level.
It has its own en-suite bathroom and self catering facilities, but it does not have a full kitchen. The kitchenette is located in the bedroom area and contains a small fridge, toaster, kettle, microwave, 2 plate stove, pans, crockery, and cutlery. It, therefore, does not contain an oven and kitchen sink.
Tea, coffee, fresh milk and other basic breakfast items are provided - with some other little goodies.
The rooms have just been upgraded but the entire property is pre-renovation so please be aware of the low ceilings of this room. I will post a picture which will show the ceiling height but its suitable for most people's heights. The lowest part of the ceiling is around 2m, and then it slants upwards. The only reason why I mention it is because it bothers me aesthetically.
Beach towels can be provided on request. The bathroom contains towels for showering purposes.
FANS OR HEATERS or IRON
Also available on request.
We own cats and they are our children. They don't tend to enter the guest studio and won't bother you. Unless you do require their help, of course
Arrangements can be made with me so that I can wash your water washable clothing inside the main house upstairs, provided that at least 2 days are available in which to wash and naturally dry them.
An allocated laundry bag is provided and can be dropped back off at my door on your way out as I prefer to maintain your privacy and not go into your area of the property.
Please provide special wash- and care instructions with your laundry if required. The cost of washing and drying of one load is 100 ZAR. This is payable upfront please. Arrangements for ironing, if needed, can also be made at an additional cost.
