Getaway (South Africa) - - Check In -


Theresa Lewis has cre­ated the most de­light­ful north-fac­ing apart­ment above her 1925 home, with large steel-frame win­dows pro­vid­ing pic­turesque views of both moun­tain and har­bour, and a po­si­tion that catches the last rays of the sun. It’s fur­nished with a quirky mix of what the artis­tic Theresa calls ‘junk’ and con­tem­po­rary pieces – a bain-marie has been re­con­fig­ured into a kitchen unit with sink and hob, a claw-foot bath is com­bined with an open walk-in shower – pro­duc­ing a space that is both more char­ac­ter­ful and cheaper than any­thing you’ll find in Ma­jes­tic Vil­lage (see page 50). The lo­ca­tion is also very con­ve­nient – a twominute stroll to the har­bour and seafront, but in a quiet street set back one block from the main road. ROOM TIP Theresa’s is un­der­stand­ably pop­u­lar, and there’s only one at this price with this view. But in the same price range (around R200 more) is Fish­er­man’s Cove, a tiny, his­toric, semi-de­tached cot­tage with no views but very cute, man­aged by Away From Home (see Ma­jes­tic Vil­lage). COST R750 (sleeps two). Three-night or more min­i­mum stay. CON­TACT capes­
