HOUSE TO RENT - SHORT OR LONG TERM STAYS WELCOME. INEXPENSIVE, SAFE, VERY COMFORTABLE. A WELL MANAGED HOME FROM HOME

Acute Cottage is a stand alone house with two double bedrooms situated in a green suburb called Pinelands in central Cape Town.
We are 14 kms from the airport and 11 kms from the centre of town.

We host many overseas families, and 'swallows' who return yearly.

The cottage is fully furnished, all linens inclusive and serviced weekly.
We are within a two minute walk from a small group of convenient shops.

There is ample off street parking and the back garden is private.

We would love to host you in Cape Town and are open to short and longer stays that suit your budget.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Robert and Simonette

About Me
We are a South African family with an Italian heritage. Robert works with Transnet in Property. We have two grown daughters. I run our home and the cottage, both within a 3km distance of each other. Gardening is a favorite hobby of mine. Our family enjoys all that is available living in Cape Town; the walks, the beach, the trips to the Wine Farms...this city has much to offer! We love having people stay at Acute Cottage, as we trust they will enjoy South Africa and have 'a holiday of a life time'.

A Cute Cottage is really an experience. The house has the atmosphere of the period it has been built in with a matching decoration, but still has all the modern amenities. The garden is well maintained, provides good privacy and you can spent those hot afternoons relaxing under the trees. The location is excellent for visiting all the interesting spots in the cape and after a busy day return to this quiet neighbourhood. Shops, restaurants and train stations are at walking distance. We could pretty much walk to wherever we wanted to be. The house was neat, tidy and cool on warm summer days. We could not be more delighted with the hospitality and friendliness of Simonette. She goes far beyond what you can expect. Simonette seems to think of everything you may need including food and drinks to help you through the first day. We will be back again to enjoy the cottage and Pinelands. Excellent Elisabeth&Ferdinand 2/25/2020 7:45:00 AM
Acute Cottage is the best kept secret in Cape Town. The cottage and the Billett family made our stay for 2 months in Cape Town an exceptional experience. We have rented other apartments/guest houses in Cape Town earlier and have never had a better stay. The beautiful home which was decorated and furnished with a personal touch by the owner, Simonette, was a joy to be in. The garden and property likewise. The location was ideal. Not only did we feel safe in the neighborhood but we had easy access to the center of town as well as the universities UTC and UWC. The Billetts went out of their way to assist us in everything from practical matters to personal invitations for seeing and doing things in the city as well as traveling in SA. A must for academics wanting to work and/or rest in Cape Town. Thanks again, Simonette and Rob Excellent Penny 7/23/2012 1:50:00 AM
