It was such a beautiful place. You felt at home immediately. Cosy flat and we felt safe there. Smashing veranda including rooftop with great outlooks :)

The pictures do not lie! Great space in a vibrant area of Cape Town. Very near public transport, numerous restaurants and legendary Parker's convenience store. Wifi worked great throughout house and in the lovely backyard area where we were able to host dinner parties. Linens wer…

The Pumpkin Palace is an interesting flat with lots of character, and Woodstock is one of my favorite places in Cape Town. However, the host was extremely rude. I went to great lengths to arrange an early check-in time and even offered to pay the night before. When we arrived,…

Hello Sophie. Thanks for your response. You will note that this is the first terrible review that our Palace has ever received in four years! I am sorry that you dfound me to be rude. Sincere apologies again that we could not turn the house over in time for your 8 am check in. Perhaps it would have been a better idea that you had in deed booked the previous night as well. The preceding week had been open for some time and then a guest booked the house on line at the last minute and the cross over time was too tight. It wont happen again. I live 100 kilometers away from Cape Town and I could not get to the city any faster that what I promised I would do. I am sorry if I came over non-chalant. The solution I offered was the best effort I could do. My lovely neighbor Daisy even came over to bring you fresh towels so that you could freshen up after your flight, go out for lunch and give me time to get the house sorted out.....which I could have done for you. Instead you found another accommodation and I fairly refunded you for the night, just because I could not honour the early-heck in' favour/arrangement' that I had promised you. I shall attend to the faulty washing machine this week and replace the French Press which seems to have disappeared. I will add instructions to the washer to the guest book as I am busy with an update. The garden gate lock was put on incorrectly by my maintenance man in the proceeding days and has been sorted out. The stove hob lights automatically, so you dont need matches. The oven is electric. Again, I appologise for your less than perfect airbnb experience. Regards, Jayson

Voor de liefhebbers van een artistiek volgepropt victoriaans huis is dit echt een must! We hebben met plezier een week verbleven in deze levendige, maar in de lente nogal stormachtige, opkomende wijk. Gemakkelijk voor de deur parkeren en met de auto op vijf minuten van het centru…

Communication with Jayson was excellent, Check in was exactly as expected, although we didn't find the house manual the first day. We loved the neighbourhood, good cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance, and a Myciti bus stop right around the corner. That said, if …
