Thank you so much Hilary, for the warm and stunning welcome & accommodation. It was home away from home. As you saw, the kids were super excited! Anchors Away is close to all amenities and a short ride to other Cape Town attractions. All the best for 2020 - we will see you again!

Thank you Hilary, thank you, thank you, thank you. It has been nothing short of a homely feeling. Your neighbours are so friendly, they made us feel like we belong – please stay as kind as you are and may your business continue to grow.
