From the airport, just continue along the N2 towards Cape Town city centre. Head for Cape Town. Continue on the N2 for about 10 minutes and as you come up to the mountain keep right and continue towards the city - following the signs. Keep right on the N2 following signs to the Waterfront. The freeway will come to an end. Carry on straight, at the 3rd set of traffic lights turn right into Somerset Rd. Drive for 2 mins and turn left at "HUDSONS" into Upper Portswood rd, keep right. We are the BLUE house.


If cancelled or modified up to 30 days before date of arrival, no fee will be charged. If cancelled or modified or in the case of a no-show 30% of the total price of the reservation will be charged.
