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.

What can I say about this wonderful home and wonderful host, Jorje. My stay here was simply amazing. The care and attention was impeccable, in absolutely everything; from the rooms to the food to the washing, and right up to the wise words and advice from Jorje! Everything was fabulous. I highly recommend this location if you want peace and quite.. coupled with the fact that you are only a 10 minute drive from the centre of Cape Town; a brilliant location and a wonderful experience.

If I were to describe my stay here, in one word, that word would be HOME. I have been here for just over as week, and by day three I referred to The Gables as home. Although I have only been here a week so far, I think you are an amazing person. I will most certainly return and further to that I will certainly keep in touch. Thanks a MILLION!
