With squirrels scurrying in the lush garden and leaping from tree to tree, this quaint and very private flatlet at Riverlea, "Squirrel's Leap", provided more than expected!

Terry has really a sense of hospitality and her pieces of advice were useful to accomodate the visit of Cape Town and its surroundings.
It is really a place I would recommend for people you want to stay in Cape Town.

"In South Africa, we tend to be accepting of sub standard service as a general norm. At Riverlea, not only was the accommodation superb, the level of service was among the BEST that I have ever experienced. Terry, the host, goes way beyond what is expected from a Guest House. When I am next in Cape T..."more
