About Robin's Nest Rondebosch
Robinís Nest is a home from home in the quiet suburb of Rondebosch in Cape Town. The comfortable living conditions, leafy surrounds and convenient location are just some of the reasons both business and leisure guests come back to Robin's Nest.
Our proximity to Red Cross Childrenís Hospital, the University of Cape Town, Cape Town International Airport and the Central Business District allow our guests easy access to these and other locations.
Accommodation is available in a spacious unit separate from the main dwelling, its entrance overlooking a sparkling pool. Robinís Nest has plenty of cupboard space, a well-equipped kitchenette (which includes microwave, oven, stove and fridge), bathroom, three single beds (or double bed option), a double sleeper couch in the comfortable lounge area, a dining room table and chairs, M-Net TV and hi-fi system. Fresh linen and towels are provided and laundry facilities are also available.
Secure off-street parking is available immediately outside the cottage, and a remote control for the electric gate is provided for easy access at your convenience.
Robinís Nest offers a sense of 'stay at home' relaxation. Sliding doors open to a paved patio beneath a leafy vined-pergola. Outdoor furniture, a Weber braai / barbecue for guestsí use, swimming, pool-side sunbathing, table tennis and darts invite outdoor living and a range of books and brochures for browsing further encourage guests to linger at home.
