Greenkeeper Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. The location couldn't be better: it's in a quiet residential street only a couple of minutes' drive from the N2, which gets you into the suburbs of Cape Town within 10-15 minutes. There's easy access to lovely seaside towns like Kalk Bay, and there are shops and restaurants within walking distance, including a decent pub and a lovely Italian. Your two balconies look out over the golf course and dramatic mountain scenery. But the real appeal of this accommodation, where we spent 11 wonderful days, is the comfort. Heather and Bruce make you so welcome, providing fruit, fresh flowers and a bottle of wine: they even did some shopping for basics as we were arriving late on a Saturday. You have total privacy and yet easy communication with your hosts by telephone provided in the apartment. It's a real home-from-home: the bathroom and bedroom are spacious and quite luxurious. The quality of the furnishings and fabrics is lovely, and the bed was the most comfortable one we've ever had in any holiday accommodation. There are all sorts of thoughtful touches, including toiletries and kitchen basics such as teabags, oils, even rubber gloves! We had a few nights in, sitting on the big balcony watching the sun go down, cooking, drinking the delightful local wines and star-spotting. There's a barbecue which Bruce kindly brought up to the balcony for our use, and the swimming pool is idyllic, with sun-loungers and a shady bower for those delicate complexions! All in all, we had a completely fabulous holiday, thanks in no small part to our great luck in booking Greenkeeper Lodge!
