--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Jennifer & Partner, Munich, Germany: - Stay 1 month - returning for 2 months 2017 !!!

We just had a wonderful time in this beautiful place and could enjoy every minute of our 4 weeks with Cecelle! She really is a perfect host, had great suggestions where to go and what to do and helped immediately when I got a heat stroke. We felt so welcome and will certainly come back.


Review April 2016: Tim

Cecelle was a fantastic hostess. Warm, welcoming and accommodating, she was always just a message away if we needed anything. The room is beautiful (I hope my apartment looks like that one day!). And had everything we needed. Loved the Hulu and Netflix. The view is stunning and we never felt unsafe at any point. Thank you Cecelle!


Review November 2015

Ken and Carolyn, 60+, USA.

"Our host Cecelle made us feel very welcome.

She was very helpful in helping us navigate our sightseeing, arranged transportation from and to the airport.

The apartment was beautiful, very well supplied with all that we needed.

She is readily available to answer any and all questions, could not have been any nicer to us.

The apartment is exactly as listed, even better that we expected, and very clean.

If you desire a location that is quiet away from the city, this is a great place. We used the trains which were a five minute walk away on four occasions and had no problems.

We bought metro plus passes, very inexpensive, and the cars had upholstered seats, and were very uncrowded.

On one occasion we got into the second class car, which was more crowded with locals and had bench seats, but it was clean and the other passengers were nice to us. It was a 20 minute ride to the center of the city. The on and off buses, the red and blue line was a great way to get an overview of the city. It included a stop at the cablecar also, so not necessary to take a cab there. Dining out and wine is inexpensive, a great city to explore."

October 2015 Review ☆☆☆☆☆

From: Tshego (2nd time visitor)

Another great stay at Cecelle's lovely studio apartment. This has become my Cape Town accommodation of choice. Very well kept and clean. Everything in working order. Close to Constantia Village and easy to get to. Great value for a beautiful stay!

Response from Cecelle:

Thanks once again for your kind words, it makes doing this such a pleasure!


October 2015

Kerrie & Partner

We really enjoyed our stay. Cecelle made us feel welcome and the accommodation was comfy and exactly what we were looking for. Will definitely be back.


Thato Visit - September 2015 15 day booking.

Cecelle was a very lovely host. She was such a wonderful host, explaining all that we needed to know and making us feel as welcome and comfortable as possible. We were not on holiday, we were at Cecelle's to recover from major surgery and there was a lot we needed help with. Cecelle went out of her way to help us with all that she could and did not make us feel that we were asking for too much, even when we were:-) The flat/unit is exactly as impeccable in real life as it looks on the photos. It is luxurious, comfortable and inviting. It also very secure and one feels safe there.


Read - My great FIVE STAR review in June 2015


"Cecelle's place is really one of the nicest studio places we have stayed. The design is really well considered and feels spacious, light and airy with the windows giving a view of the mountains at the back and the sliding doors to the front. The bed is extremely comfortable and the shower is fantastic and because the stove is gas you won't be hindered by any load-shedding. It is beautifully decorated and well-equipped with everything you would need to for a short stay. We felt very safe; the studio is situated in a quiet street in a nice area within walking distance of lots of amenities and Constantia Village is a five minute drive up the road. Plumstead is a very relaxed area but close to the city centre which we found ideal as well as nice places to walk in Tokai and Constantia. Cecelle is a lovely host: she is warm and welcoming and really very helpful and made us feel very comfortable during our stay. She has a very useful welcome pack in the studio which provides lots of information on accessing the wifi, eating out in the area, and a map book to help you get around if you are new to Cape Town. She also made sure all the basics were in the unit when we arrived so we weren't rushing to the shops as soon as we got there to buy milk and bread etc which was really great. If we had any questions or needed advice Cecelle was really obliging and made some great recommendations for places to eat and go out close by. I genuinely couldn't recommend Cecelle as a host or her studio as a place to stay in Cape Town more and will definitely be telling our friends and family about it. It is definitely one of the best and we are really grateful to Cecelle for looking after us while we were in Cape Town. Thank you!" (From George and Sarah, Eastern Cape. 3 week stay)

Getting around

Interaction with guest

I enjoy meeting and greeting my guests when they arrive and explain the running of the property to them. Security features, codes, etc. If they need my help I will always try and give them the necessary information or help them find the answer. I can suggest things to do, happy to sit and chat over a glass of wine. Or keep my distance.
