Wow, where do I begin. The neighborhood is incredible, full of vibrant individuals, the home had lots of character and charm. Mama Mirriam and the family were incredibly kind. The smell of an amazing home cooked meal in the evening to the wonderful helpful neighbors, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Mama Mirriam’s home
As Capetonians ourselves it was really great to experience a different side of our city for a night. We felt the lack of fences between houses really created a much more communal feel and plenty of energy, which you don’t experience in more affluent areas of Cape Town. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a homestay to tourists and South African alike.
Mama Mirriam is amazing! She welcomed me into her family and made me feel truly at home. She cooked the most delicious food and had a full continental breakfast, as well as always offering anything I may need. If I were sitting alone, she’d warmly invite me to come join her. Her home is beautiful, with the comfiest bed I have slept on in ages.
I stayed with Nomalady for two weeks and felt so welcome and cared for by her and her whole family.
