Known as the jewel of the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town, Durbanville is home to a wide variety of wine farms and offers amazing views of Table Mountain and local orchards. And in Durbanville, there is no better place to stay than at the Pelican Place Guest Cottages.

Pelican Place is perfectly situated within driving distance of all the local attractions of Cape Town, while keeping away from the busy City Centre. Guests will find that activities such as golf courses, tennis clubs, shopping centres and theme parks are just a few minutes away.

Owner, Evvie Dobreva, has great pride in her establishment, and says it’s the perfect place to rest after a day of exploring.

“Pelican Place Guesthouse is the perfect retreat after a day of sightseeing. Once back home, one can unwind in the thatch-roof covered Jacuzzi, or escape those hot days by simply swimming in the pool, whilst enjoying the landscaped garden and the friendliness of staff and other guests,” Evvie describes.

“We stayed at Pelican Place for almost a month on a business trip and the cottage was very convenient. Self-catering kitchen with everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating and even changed the beds to suit our needs as well as moved a table for us to use as a work space.” – Oyseka D TripAdvisor.

Pelican Place has beautiful cottages to choose from

For guests who don’t feel like cooking first thing in the morning, Pelican Place is also a Bed & Breakfast accommodation. On request, breakfast can be provided in the dining room, where you can enjoy the small gallery with works from popular South African artists.

“The guest cottages at Pelican Place are really lovely and the owners very friendly. We were in Cape Town for a wedding and pelican place was the perfect base for us. The pool was perfect although a little cold at that time of year. The owner did breakfast for us whenever we requested it and actually did a taxi run for us one evening as taxis are not very available. I would recommend this accommodation as a perfect self-catering holiday.” – Barbara M TripAdvisor.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
