We had an incredible stay at Sol and Mike’s apartment, and we can highly recommend it to any other business or leisure travelers. The gorgeous apartment has wrap-around views of the harbor, the city bowl, Signal Hill, and Lion’s Head. The beds are comfy, the apartment is spacious, and having a grill on the deck is a luxurious bonus. The place was spotless when we arrived – this is mentioned many times in the reviews, and we can attest to it. The private parking bay, spa bath, and fiber internet are great perks. Communicating with the hosts was very easy. They were extremely understanding and hospitable when our stay was affected by the nation-wide lockdown. We can highly recommend this apartment, as well as the hosts, to anyone traveling to this beautiful part of the world. –  Peter

I stayed at Sasha’s place for 6 nights. The setting is amazing, and the cottage is so tastefully decorated. Everything has been thought of – even a plugin the floor by the table, so one doesn’t have to use an extension lead to power a laptop. Although the cottage is on a property with other houses, I felt completely private. I cannot recommend Sasha’s cottage highly enough! Really superb. Thank you. – Steve
