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'.

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
