Park West Cottage is an upmarket, elegant, conveniently situated cottage in well-established garden with views of Table Mountain, in the heart of picturesque Newlands. We are on the doorstep of Kirstenbosch and twenty minutes door to door from Cape Town International Airport.

The cottage is within walking distance of the iconic Vineyard Hotel, Newlands Cricket and Rugby grounds, trendy Newlands Village, the Liesbeek Canal, Table Mountain National Park, and Cavendish Square. It is 3 kilometres from the University of Cape Town.

Apart from managing the cottage ourselves, we both have our own professions in law and music respectively. We have a son and a daughter in their twenties, and two Golden Retrievers. The cottage is a pet free zone. It is serviced daily during the week, excluding public holidays.

The outdoor area is shaded by oaks in the early mornings, with plenty of sunshine later and there are spacious swimming pool and garden patios with pool loungers. The  cottage has a separate entrance and secure parking. No smoking in the cottage. The living areas are north facing and light and bright.
