I'm retired senior school teacher. I enjoy spending time with friends and having good conversations. I'm a painter who works mainly in oils, I have been a clothing designer, and interior decorator. I'm passionate about: many things perhaps most particularly film and opera, traveling and reading. I enjoy hosting and sharing my home with like minded people. I do my best to ensure my guests have complete privacy and independence thereby have a memorable stay at The Gables

Jorje Pringle purchased this house in 2006

The Gables is in an area that is very convenient to all parts of Cape Town, it seldom experiences wind and has a gentle healing atmosphere, as the comments from past visitors will attest.

It s a smoke free environment.

You will be staying with someone who really does care about your comfort, without invading your privacy.

The tranquility of the area and the forest setting beneath Table Mountain makes this retreat ideal for rest and recovery. The bustle of the shopping centers, theaters restaurants are very easy to access. The warm safe Indian ocean with long clean beaches or the Atlantic coast with beaches, where the fashoinista's frolic are a short drive away. Mountain walks on Table Mountain or a stroll through Kirstenbosch Botanical garden are on your doorstep. Daily breakfast or Candlelit dinner under the magnificence of Table Mountain is indeed a romantic experience you will treasure.
