    Bicycle Lodge - a perfect summer stay

    We stayed in Bicycle Lodge for 7 weeks and had a fabulous time. John and Sharon were perfect hosts - easy to engage with and always helpful. We fell in love with their dog Zoe who has the nicest temperament ever! The accommodation is in a great location with easy access to the coast, central Cape Town, Constantia, local vineyards and just over an hour to Franschhoek. We found the bedrooms to be spacious and beds very comfortable, and overall, the accommodation nice and homely. Sharon and John keep their plot in perfect shape with lovely trees, shrubs and water feature. If you choose to stay here then it would be very hard not to have a wonderful time!

    Perfect home away from home!

    Everything you need is there. The owner is always willing to help but also gives you space. Warmly recommend this place!

    Immaculate house with everything you need.

    Sharon and John were super hosts, very friendly and informative, the house was in a perfect quiet location but central for all Cape Town activities, a beautiful garden with all sorts of interest and lovely outdoor seating, small pool but perfect for a cool down! Thank you for your hospitality x

    Relaxing sanctuary

    Thank you Sharon for a relaxing but productive little retreat - I had the space to think and work in your beautiful tranquil cottage. There is definitely something about birds softly tweeting in the morning that is good for ones soul.

    Excellent!

    My wife and I just returned from a 10 day stay at Bicycle Lodge, and are hoping to return in the near future. Sharon and John are wonderful hosts, who live in the larger house at the front of the property, and the accommodation is exactly as depicted in the pictures on the website. It's very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. This is truly a home away from home, and the floor plan really works for a couple or a small family. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glassware and we ended up cooking every night for ourselves both because it was so well equipped and we were tired of eating out for a month previous to our stay. There are plenty of good food markets close by too. If you have a car, then Tokai is a very good place to stay since every place you'd want to visit in the Cape Town area is relatively close by. We chose Bicycle Lodge owing to its excellent reviews by previous guests, and we also loved the accommodation, hosts, and location. Many thanks, Sharon and John. Scott & Han

    Tranquil home from home and a perfect base for exploring the Cape

    My husband and I and our 2 friends have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Cape Town. Bicycle Lodge was a great find, located in a quiet, residential area in the attractive suburb of Tokai. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by John and Sharon, the owners, and their friendly dog, Zoe. The property is spacious and tastefully furnished with good sized bedrooms and plenty of storage space and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and seating areas. We loved sitting on the terrace eating our breakfast whilst watching the wildlife including birds, squirrels and lizards. Zoe would often join us for a biscuit and a tummy tickle! There is a lovely pool ideal for cooling off on warmer days and there are sun beds and small deckchairs with beach towels provided. We hired a car for the 2 weeks of our stay and explored a lot of the Cape, including the wine route and as nowhere was further than a couple of hours drive away it was ideal for days out. Our favourite places were Kirstenbosch Botanic Garden’s ( just up the road), Boulder Bay to see the penguins, Simonstown, Stellenbosch, Franschoek, Hout Bay, Llandudno, Cape of Good Hope ( but avoid the baboons!) Table Mountain, Bo- Kaap and the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town. Eating out was an amazing experience as the quality of food and wine is so high and the prices are so low! We tried many of the local restaurants and without exception they were all excellent with friendly service and spotlessly clean. Just across the road from Bicycle Lodge there is a small row of shops and restaurants and we enjoyed wonderful breakfasts and lunches at Bootleggers and dinners at The Brasserie. A couple of miles up the road at Steenberg Village centre is a larger shopping precinct with 2 good supermarkets selling everything you need and a number of restaurants, all of which we tried. Jakes in the Village, The Hussar Grill, Basilico and Fish Market all served delicious freshly cooked food. We also had a lovely final evening of wine tasting at Steenberg Estate followed by wonderful tapas at the BistroSixteen 82. There are walking and cycling trails around Tokai and John, a keen cyclist, kindly lent my husband one of his mountain bikes and took him for a spin around the area which he really enjoyed. Overall we had a wonderful stay at Bicycle Lodge and can highly recommend it. We loved everything about S Africa and hope to return again before too long!

    Cape Town est surprenante et plein de contraste ! Énormément de choses à voir et à faire.

    Magnifique maison, confortable et décorée avec goût. Située dans un quartier sûre et tranquille. Tout était parfait ainsi que leur chien très gentil.

    tolle Wohnung und nette Vermieter

    Die Lodge liegt sehr schön als Ausgangspunkt für die Halbinsel und auch für Besuche in Kapstadt. Tolle große Wohnung mit allem was man braucht ausgestattet. Es war ein wenig warm nachts. Fenster öffnen war wegen Mücken keine gute Option. Ansonsten alles bestens. Tolle nette Vermieter und ein schöner Garten. Nicht zu vergessen Zoe, der Hund, der abends gerne bei uns lag und und immer freundlich empfing .

    Wunderbare Unterkunft in der Nähe von Kapstadt

    Die Ferienwohnung ist mit sehr viel Liebe eingerichtet, besonders hervorzuheben sind die beiden Schlafzimmer, die jeweils mit sehr guten Matratzen bestückt sind und sich verdunkeln lassen. Die Wohnung selbst liegt auf dem Grundstück der Vermieter, ist aber von ihnen nicht direkt einsehbar. Die Lage des Grundstücks ist sehr sicher, da man ungefähr 30 km von Kapstadt in einem typischen Vorort wohnt. Der Kontakt zu John und Sharon war unkompliziert und herzlich, sie haben uns immer tolle Tipps für Unternehmungen gegeben, die man nicht unbedingt in den Reisebüchern findet. Bei Bedarf übernimmt Sharon auch die Wäsche, da eine eigene Waschmaschine nicht zur Verfügung steht. Insgesamt können wir die Ferienwohnung uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
