The Mother City is like Wonderland; anyone who visits or decides to stay can become their very own version of Alice (blue dress is optional). It’s rich in a variety of cultures and you’ll probably find a mad hatter here or there. 1 On Queens offers you accommodation while you explore the lustrous City of Cape Town for two people for one night for R580 or R1160 for two nights. Breakfast is included.
This modern Tuscan Villa can be found nesting on Signal Hill surrounded by the vibrant and crazy allure only Cape Town can exude onto its occupants. This boutique guesthouse is the perfect getaway destination for anyone who wants to slip away from the sane to the insane wonders of the City. Sip on a warm cup of coffee or challenge the Caterpillar in a pipe smoking contest, (ever wondered why Table Mountain’s always under a blanket of clouds?), as you decide what will be on the to-do-list for the day (maybe get that blue dress with lots and lots of frills).
Each room is air-conditioned for those people who love to walk around in a t-shirt during winter time, with a spacious bathroom, satellite television for series and movie junkies, a telephone to call all your friends and brag about your holiday, a mini bar for mini parties, a safe, and a hairdryer and complimentary tea and coffee are available. If the Cheshire Cat annoys you, you can always take him for a swim in the pool. Cats just love water.
Hip and happening, Kloof Street is only a short walk away and filled with incredible shops and exquisite restaurants. You will be a mere five minute drive away from the golden beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, the City Centre, the ever popular V&A Waterfront, the Cape Town International Conference Centre, and the must-do cable car trip up incredible Table Mountain. The possibilities are endless.
The guesthouse will assist with travel arrangements, airport transfers and provide car hire and travel suggestions. The boutique has wireless internet for any savvy businessman/woman or Google addicts. Theatres and cinemas are in short travel distance and not only do they speak Afrikaans and English at this lovely guesthouse, but “Wir sprechen auch Deutsch!”
Quick Fact: Back in the olden days, about a century or two ago, everyone had to write cursive. There is a legend that says there was a small, but very popular guesthouse somewhere in Houtbay that had a magical pink pen. Anyone who stayed there and could write (cursive of course) wrote in the guestbook. Two weeks later that person would either find good fortune or die a horrible death. It was fifty-fifty. Half the people who took up the dare, died. Apparently.
