Private linen is done on request and is charged per load, washed, dried, ironed/folded. There is off street parking. It is a pet- and smoking-free zone. There are beautiful walks in the forest and along the canals on our doorstep. The famous Vineyard Hotel is across the canal from the property. The property has a gorgeous view of Table Mountain. It is suitable for couples - we do not really cater for children under 15, and it sleeps two people only. Newlands village with its trendy restaurants and shops is a 10 minute walk away - so convenience is the keyword here. The decor is minimal but user friendly and chic. The bed can double up as either twin or king-size extra length and we use high quality linen, some of which is Egyptian cotton. The duvets and pillows are down. The cottage has a private entrance. It leads out onto a lovely sunny shared patio and pool, or alternatively there is a private patio area on the lawn under the trees. It is perfect for expoloring Cape Town, as it is so central. We are situated in the Southern Suburbs and have the renown Newlands cricket and rugby grounds a short walk away. You can also just relax around the pool and go nowhere. We provide you with a welcome pack of breakfast food with tea and coffee on arrival, so that the shelves are not bare. There are always fresh flowers in the lounge area.

Truly a home away from home!
We stayed in Park West Cottage from September 2016 to July 2017, and found this lovely cottage to be truly a home away from home. It is situated in the leafy suburb of Newlands, on a quiet tree-lined street. It is within walking distance of UCT, Cavendish Mall, a Melissa’s coffee/grocery shop, Newlands Forest, and several restaurants/pubs, and within easy driving distance of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the city bowl, Table Mountain Cableway, and the Cape Peninsula. So, it is very well situated. The cottage itself is cozy, comfortable, impeccably clean, secure, and very well equipped. It is situated in the garden of the home of the friendly hosts, and looks out at Table Mountain, and the swimming pool. The sitting room has large windows where the sun streams in and you can sit and admire the views of the mountain and the hosts’ lovely garden. The kitchen is well supplied, and has a sitting area that also affords a view of the mountain. The bedroom is very large, as is the ensuite bathroom, which has both a large bath and shower. The linen is top quality, and the king-sized bed is very comfortable. Wall heaters throughout the cottage keep it warm in winter, while the numerous windows ensure a cooling breeze in summer. Situated as it is within the walled garden of the hosts’ home, the cottage is very safe. There is secure parking within the walled garden for a guest’s vehicle. What truly makes this cottage special, however, are the hosts Debby and Neil. They will go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy a wonderful stay with them. Nothing is too much trouble. Whenever we left on a holiday, we would return to find the fridge stocked for us. We would often return from a day out to discover that Debby had left us treats – fresh apples and pears from the family farm were a favourite. Both Neil and Debby were full of helpful advice regarding hiking trails, scenic drives, and shops etc. They always made us feel welcome and part of their family. If you are considering a stay in Cape Town, then we would highly recommend Park West Cottage. You will not be disappointed.

Great cottage
Quiet location in the heart of Newlands and within walking distance of bars and restaurants. The 'cottage' is a single storey wing of the main house. It has a fully fitted modern kitchen, dining area, comfortable lounge and large bedroom and bathroom. The owners are happy for guests to share the garden, terrace and pool and are very friendly and welcoming. We stayed for 4 weeks and loved it,

About the neighbourhood
Newlands is at the foot of Table Mountain, with beautiful walks along the Canal to Kirstenbosch, and also into the Table Mountain Conservancy. The suburb is accessed via a canopy of oak trees. The canal has a permanent stream running through it and the Mountain looms large wherever you are in Newlands. The season changes are vivid, with the large number of oak trees providing ever-changing landscape through the year. Squirrels and Egyptian geese abound in the area, and guinea fowl and hadedas (sacred ibis) walk the streets, in competition with the neighbours and their dogs. Newlands village is ever so sociable and a 5 minute walk away.
