Tim Scarborough (who emigrated from Jersey to Cape Town in 1963), his wife Margie and their team, offer their winning blend of hospitality, comfort, character and a beautiful location. Klein Bosheuwel Guesthouse is the closest B&B to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, only a 200m walk, and guests are supplied with free passes to enter the Gardens. Our conveniently central location means that we are only a 15-minute drive to both the Cape Town Waterfront and Hout Bay and 20 minutes drive to the airport. There are numerous walks, hiking trails and biking trails, for all levels, within easy distance from the Guesthouse.
Delicious breakfasts are served in the conservatory, which overlooks the garden, and guests can watch numerous varieties of birds, feeding close by while eating in the conservatory. There is plenty of advice available for guests, who want to explore restaurants, the Constantia Valley wine estates, or the many other attractions that the Cape has to offer. Tim and Margie are only too happy to make reservations, provide maps and guide guests to their destinations. For guests who choose to relax there is a beautiful established garden with roses, a variety of other flowers, shrubs, and trees, and winding paths. There is a secluded swimming pool with stunning views of the mountain and the Constantia Valley. Children are welcome and they love playing with Feather, the Sheepdog.
The Guesthouse offers four en-suite bedrooms situated in the main house and a separate self-catering flat. The warmth of welcome at Klein Bosheuwel results in ‘happy guests’, many of whom return year after year, and lasting friendships are formed. One of Tim’s hobbies is vexillology (You might have to Google this!) so look out for the flag of your home country flying in anticipation of your arrival.
