The grounds are immaculate, equipped with a pool, large braai, picnic areas, and pond that are often visited by the regional birds of Cape Town. While we did not have the opportunity to use the pool as spring was just beginning and the weather was a bit cold, we did enjoy the gorgeous sunrises, sunsets, and city views from the backyard. At night, we were able to enjoy the starlight from our patio.
