Great self catering cottage that is excellently equipped. Beds and linen were very comfy and the outside shower was popular with the boys. Gwenni was a perfect host and nothing was too much trouble for her. She communicated clearly and was involved in every step of the booking process. We needed to be close to UCT Hospital and this cottage was ideal. Full DSTV bouquet, good WiFi and secure.

Absolutely loved our stay at bay leaf cottage, Gwen was so welcoming with such warming hospitality. Really had gone up and beyond to make us feel at home.  Even a complimentary bottle of wine cooling in the fridge for us that evening and eggs for breakfast! I must say, the outside warm shower sold it to me! Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to stay in the observatory area and wants... Read more

The four of us really enjoyed our stay at Bay Leaf Cottage in July 2014. Glen was a generous and gracious host. WARNING: if you prefer to have a tumble dryer available in wet weather you will need to use the laundromat down the road. Otherwise a great stay. Good location: fairly central for Table Mountain, Signal Hill, Waterfront & Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

Very good accommodation - well equipped for a longer stay away from home. Gwen made us feel welcome and was available to help throughout our stay.
