About Us

Our names are Helen and Brian Matthew, and we have the pleasure of living in Cape Town.

We are a family managed business, having been established since 1998 and are able to offer you superb accommodation in one of the best locations in Cape Town. Originally from Poole, Dorset we moved to South Africa with our two Boxers in 1991 and have lived the same house since then.Over the years family and friends have enjoyed visiting us and experiencing our hospitality. So much so, we decided to build the two cottages on our large plot of land and extend our personal welcome to visitors from far and wide.

We have been fortunate over the years to establish an extremely good reputation with visitors both from this country and overseas. So much so - that many of our bookings are now from ‘friends’ on return visits. Having lived here for all this time we are familiar with the surroundings and able to offer sound advice based and first hand personal knowledge and experience.

So why not come and visit us – it will be a holiday you will never forget.




“Helen, your cottage are really a home from home. We thank you for helping us at such short notice. Your detail and the ‘arty’ decorating is a lovely change from the usual guest houses. Thanks again..” Susan Daniels

“Helen and Brian, thank you for waiting up for us to arrive, and for putting out some bread, butter, milk and tea, very thoughtful. I love Cape Town, but what I love more is Bloubergrant. This little cottage will now be a home away from home. God Bless”. Lillian

“Thank you so much for everything! Have had a fantastic time in your beautiful cottage. We will highly recommend you to anyone else coming for a visit! Also we loved Phoebe and Sugar who kept Jacob most amused. Hope to see you soon.” Liz, Brain, Hannah and Jacob – Scotland
