Das Cottage ist für max. 4 Personen ausgerichtet, hübsch eingerichtet, mit allen wichtigen Utensilien ausgestattet und sauber. Die Besitzer sind wirklich sehr nett aber unaufdringlich - hat man Fragen sind beide gerne bereit weiter zu helfen. Den kleinen Pool kann man jederzeit gerne mitbenützen. Da die Gastgeber berufstätig sind, ist man tagsüber meist für sich alleine. Der entzückende Haushund Zoe ist ebenfalls sehr freundlich und zutraulich - sie schließt einen sofort ins Herz, besonders wenn man Hundekekse verteilt ;-)
Wir würden das Cottage an alle weiterempfehlen, die eine solide, saubere, gute und kostengünstige Unterkunft in einer tollen Gegend in der Nähe von Kapstadt suchen. Die Lage ist ein perfekter Ausgangspunkt und alle Sehenswürdigkeiten rasch erreichbar. Das Anwesen ist mit hohen Mauern, einem Elektrozaun und einer Alarmanlage gesichert. Parken kann man am Grundstück. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und werden sicher wieder einmal kommen!
Being asked to write a review I was a little hesitant to do so. I have been quite often in the bicycle lodge and this is because it is a lovely place. Writing an honest review could mean that it will be fully booked and I would have to look somewhere else!
But nevertheless I will be honest.
The bicycle lodge is a very nice place to stay in Cape Town.
Situated in Tokai the location is perfect to explore Cape Town and its surroundings.
The interior is nice and one feels at home the moment you arrive!
Its is very clean and comfortable.
The garden and little pool gives the lodge an extra dimension having breakfast on the little terrace, just sitting outside enjoying the sun surrounded by nature or lit the barbecue which the quests can use.
I have stayed here with my wife and two children (age 10 and 13) and they all enjoyed staying at the lodge.
Finally the owners are very helpful should you have any questions or requests to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
I can highly recommend this lodge!
Bicycle Lodge was a great place to stay. The accommodation is lovely with two big bedrooms and a spacious lounge. Sharon and John were very helpful, giving good advice on where to go. We found the location to be excellent - easy for Cape Point, Chapman's Peak Drive and the Botanical Gardens but also with good access to the city centre. We were caught in a bad traffic jam coming out of the centre at evening rush hour - so the next time we came back via Camps Bay which was much better with stunning views of Table Mountain. Thank you for a lovely stay - we would thoroughly reccommend.
We stayed for 12 days in August at Bicycle Lodge, and this was by far the best rental experience either of us have ever had. Immediately we were very warmly greeted by Sharon and John, whose house is on the same site as the cottage. It was clear that they had spared no expense in making the property as comfortable as possible for their guests, as it was spotless, with every kind of kitchen appliance imaginable, beautiful furniture, and themselves were full of advice and recommendations for places to see or where to eat, which made our stay in South Africa that much more special. The cottage is seperated from the main house by a small fence, which gives guests privacy. Bay windows look out from the bedroom onto the beautiful garden, and at night it was lovely to sit out on the stoep and watch the sun setting behind Constantiaberg. The property is very close to the M3, which means that everything is accessible by car (necessary) in about 15-30 minutes, although there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby in the Tokai and Constantia area. At the affordable prices offered, I thoroughly recommend the Bicycle Lodge to anyone planning an extended holiday in Cape Town, and wishes to experience life there as a Capetonian.
We stayed at Bicycle Cottage for 6 nights at the end of our first visit to South Africa. The cottage was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, well equipped and nicely furnished. The owners Sharon and John (and labrador Zoe) were extremely friendly and hospitable. The cottage, which is in the grounds of their house, is located in Tokai, a pleasant suburban area in the Constantia Valley, with good shops and restaurants nearby. We found the location absolutely ideal for easy access to all the Cape Peninsula sites and attractions and an easy 20 - 25 minute drive to the V. & A. Waterfront. Our only suggestion for improving the amenity of this lovely cottage would be the provision of a washing machine, (as although Sharon included a laundry service we would have preferred the convenience of our own machine!)
We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this property to anyone seeking a really pleasant & comfortable holiday base in the Cape Town area.
Well situated, this cottage is attached to the rear of the owners' house and it is spacious, clean and well-appointed with improvements now made for 2010 just in time for our return visit.
The owners are very friendly, helpful and caring and so is their dog, Zoe!
