Our home

A beautiful, very sunny, safe, leafy, happy home, with large pool, 20 mins from 4 beaches, 5mins from shopping centre, bike riding, surfing, brilliantly located for both centre of Cape Town, trendy beaches and unspoilt, wild coastline. Oh, and you can use our Mercedes (with leather seats) and Kia (no, sorry, our other car is not a Lamborghini!). Our maid Isobelle is a sweetheart and enormously helpful and of sunny disposition. You can look after our dog Max who's an incredibly good natured golden retriever (if he can put up with our two boys he can put up with anyone!), or, if you're not a dog person we can arrange for him to stay with friends.

Who we are

  1. My wife, Margaret, and I work as business coaches. So we value that elusive work/life balance - but don't always achieve it. We do love our house. After emigrating from London 6 years ago we are enjoying the sunshine and space - and manage to get far fewer parking tickets! We both enjoy the sea and mountains, so we reckon we've come to the right place. We have two boys - Joshua who's just turned 13 and Leo, 9. They play far too much computer games- their favourite is Fifa 2010 football. The whole country went football crazy - things are just getting back to normal. We had the eyes of the whole world on us and were proud to have pulled it off with enormous good will. Oh well, back to work! Cheers, Ron

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Leafy, safe, friendly, laid back, close amenities - 5 mins from gym and shopping centre. We're pretty darned pleased about our location. Within 20 mins you can be in centre of Cape Town and Waterfront to see the aquarium, theatres, museums, old characterful Cape Malay quarter, great restaurants shopping for African curios. Within 25 mins you can be on trendy Camps Bay beach where you can strut your stuff and do some serious people watching. Or go to Hout Bay beach for peace and quiet, or Llandudno beach for exquisite beauty and surfing, or Muizenberg if you want to learn to surf, or Nordhoek where you can walk for miles on unspoilt sands - you can even ride your horse! Actually, the list goes on because there's walking in Newlands Forest, a walk up Table Mountain, trecks up Silvermine. All within 30 mins. Or take a 40 mins drive to the wine district and eat and get sozzled. You're gonna enjoy this!
