Our home is a 10 minute walk from shops, restaurants, the rugby/cricket stadium and a big recreational park, and 15 minutes by car/taxi from the beaches, Table Mountain, and the V&A Waterfront . Taxis are safe and cheap, a one way trip to the city or beach will cost you about $15-20 in total.
You are also welcome to use our bicycles to explore the neighborhood or go to the shops.
