"Roaming through South Africa, Cape Town was our final destination. We had never thought we could find such a nice place. We enjoyed your hospitality and this wonderful apartment."

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Small Thyme and found it very convenient, very comfortable and spotless. The hosts were very welcoming, the bed was super cosy and the apartment is well equipped. The view of False Bay is beautiful. Shopping in Sun Valley is really convenient and access to the beach in Fish Hoek is easy and golf courses are close by. There are also lots of good restaurants close-by in Simon's Town, Kalk Bay and St. James. There is a small kitchenette in the apartment with a barbecue area outside on the lawn. This is the perfect place to stay to use as a base when touring the area which is simply stunning! We cannot wait to return!

A place in thyme is a beautiful, very private and spacious, fully equipped accommodation with excuisite views of the ocean and mountains. It is nestled into the mountain on a quiet and safe cul de sac. It has a fabulous fun ground cable car lift to take up yourselves, luggage, shopping, babies and prams, grannies and grandpas and back down. There are stairs for the more fitter guests. Linda, our host, took very good care of us during our 10 day stay. A place in thyme is perfectly situated to visit all the places in CT. We will definitely be back.
