    Beautiful antique house with a very nice owner who takes time to talk to and help his guest. The rooms are spacious and clean and a great breakfast will set you up for the day. The location is convenient with Union buildings within walking distance.

    A beautiful, quiet, well equipped apartment. Loved the cats who visited - especially the vocal grey satiny one. Piet van Biljon is an excellent host. Beautiful residence, with character and style. Coming from water strapped Cape Town I was concerned about the leaking bath tap.
