Hi, my name is Marie, and I'll be your host during your stay in Sea Point. My husband and I have roots going back to the founding of the Cape Colony. We welcome you to South Africa and are confident you will enjoy your stay in Sea Point.
My husband and I live inland, in the scenic Breede River Valley. We bought this "pied á terre" in order to have a place to stay in the city without the necessity of a hotel. The location is wonderful. It's close to everything - the city, Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront, the beaches, golf, the Cape Peninsula, the wine routes, you name it.
Great location and budget friendly. The pedestrian promenade on Beach Road is a great asset. You can walk for miles or kilometers in either directions, toward the Waterfront or the Beaches.
