... and the people have been cheerful. Turns out the boy who got shot was a Hard Living and was targeted by The Americas who had one of its members dress in the schools uniform and come into the school to shoot him. Everyone is afraid to talk so they do not know who shot him besides they were part of the American gang.
This morning when we drove into Manenberg the streets were empty, people stood in their doorways ...
... I know they are just labels on the map, but the sight of the two current of the Indian and Pacific Ocean meeting is breath taking at Cape Point. And the overall atmosphere of The Cape of Good Hope, from the ocean breaking on the rocks to the wildlife along the side of the mountain as we climbed up. These pictures do no justice, but reflex on them, and if you ask be to describe it in person my only words will be "not even close". ...
... he offered to take us when he drove Miriam home. I was a bit nervous and so we left cameras at home; no point giving anybody a reason to temp a ‘smash and grab’. We drove through the gate and entered the township. I think I was expecting squalor. There isn’t squalor. They have streets and, lining those streets, are dwellings of various shapes and sizes and materials and colours. There is a lot of corrugated metal and even some ...
... early!!! He seems a cool guy, was talking to him about skateboarding as that is what he is in Cape Town for really he says, and he does video production so he records stuff and edits it. Nice lad. Was just sat there in the lounge bit reading Andrews Thailand lonely planet that he lent me (Scottish boy with spacers) - I do have the urge to tell him to take them out like at school! It's like the Bolton boy Dane, I get the urge to tell him to pull his trousers up!!! So I'm thinking it ...
... all are trying to figure out what to do with ourselves not having to get up at 6 and cycle 100km anymore. Some like myself are headed back to work. Others plan to have new adventures in their retirement. Some will be hanging around exploring South Africa. Two girls are heading to Ghana to cycle West Africa!
We spent three days in Cape Town. On the first we relaxed, recovered and shopped. We ate sushi (finally!). On the second we cycled the scenic ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ezard House Camps Bay
Once you walk into the Ezard House, you see the most spectacular views no matter where you look. It takes your breath away. The owner is very personable and interesting. He was a musical conductor. He designed Ezard House. The architecture is spectacular as well as the art work and appoinments. Very well furnished. The staff is very attentive and personable as well. The kitchen is spotless, and the food is delicious. You can customize your menu with advance notice. There are 10 bedrooms, each very well done and comfortable with great bathrooms. The gardens built in the hill side are lovely with a private walk and views looking up towards the 12 apostles of Table Mountain. Ezard House is built on the side of Table Mountains as far up as one is allowed to build. We can go on and on about our visit there. Spectacular !
Ezard House is truly in a league of its own. Perched high on the hillside above Camps Bay, it is a vision of unusual architecture and glass. But it's is not all style over substance. True, the rooms are lovely - modern, comfortable, terraces with wonderful views, huge luxurious bathrooms and all whims catered for. Also true - the house is a beauty inside - on three levels, with carp ponds and running water, more great views, and a hot tub on the roof for enjoying sundowners. But the real wonder of this hotel is its attitude. Everything is designed around its guests and what they want out of their holiday. Want breakfast at 2pm? No problem. Fancy a sandwich mid afternoon - absolutely. In fact, if you want to, you can pop into the kitchen and make it yourself; if not there is a chef on had to cater to your every whim. It is so incredibly refreshing to stay in a hotel like this - especially when they deliver on their promises to do things your way. We would go back there tomorrow, and why anyone would choose one of the other big corporate hotels in Cape Town over this one is beyond us.
A hotel which exceeded our expectations
We stayed in Ezard House for 5 nights beginning 8th Feb 06. From the moment we were collected at the airport by the hotel's driver to the morning we were dropped off to fly to Jo berg, the service provided by all members of the staff at this hotel was impeccable. It was friendly, unobtrusive and extremely efficient. In addition to that we were made to feel very much at home in this very well designed and contemporary yet comfortable hotel.
The sunsets from our balcony over looking the bay were breathtaking and our room (the suite) was luxurious and very spacious.
This is my first posting with trip advisor. I really cannot recommend this hotel enough.
This Hotel is the realisation of a long term dream by the hotel's founder and owner Don Ezard - To create a place where guests can come and move around as if it were their own home.
We have just returned from a 10 day visit to Ezard House and had the most amazing time. The hotel is perched on the side of the mountain and has the most amazing panoramic views over Camps Bay. You can see the 12 apostles on one side and Tigers Head on the other. The views over the ocean are spectacular from the restuarant or from the pool area and most rooms have a sea view. It is perfectly situated for touring the local tourist spots and is a 10 min drive into the Waterfront. The service was friendly, personal and all the staff, without exception could not do enough for you. The food was also excellent and the chefs Daryl and Brenda are very accommodating. This hotel makes everything easy for you, from arranging car hire, to dinner reservations and day trips and all done with a smile. The rooms are all unique, but spotless with every possible amenity, including a selection of electric sockets!!! The bathrooms are luxurious with wonderful jacuzzi baths. You must try the jacuzzi on the roof with a bottle of champagne at sunset for the most incredible views!!! I cannot praise this hotel enough and would highly recommend it for the sophisticated traveller who wants a truly unique and unforgettable stay in Cape Town. I only hope that it doesn't become too popular as we may not be able to get in next time!!!! I really do not understand how anyone could not enjoy this hotel and everything it has to offer. It is rare indeed to find such luxury, combined with personal service and quality, but Don Ezard has definitely got it just right!!!
Cool and contemporary - best view over Camps Bay
Don Ezard has carved this exquisite boutique hotel from the hillside overlooking Camps Bay. Perched high above the sea, the view from the terrace of our room (the Ocean Suite) was magnificent. The room itself was well-equipped (even having multi-format electric sockets) and air-conditioned. The service attentive yet unobtrusive, the ambience serene, the food excellent and wholesome (chefs Brenda and Darryl on hand to discuss your preferences). A stone's throw (literally) from Table Mountain National Park the hotel is well positioned for forays into Cape Town or down to our favourite beach at Hout Bay. Hint: ensure you ask for a sea view if that is your heart's desire.
A Camps Bay Gem
Finally - a boutique hotel with style, excellent service and comfort. We hadn't heard of the Ezard House before we stayed there and could not believe our luck. The room was spacious and immaculate, the service was friendly but discreet and the food was excellent, especially since you can (with a little notice) tailor-make your own meals. We had stayed at The Bay before but it has clearly gone down hill. Ezard House is now the only place to stay in Camps Bay. Anyone who could possibly be dissatisied with their stay at Ezard House, as was the previous reviewer, doesn't know world-class quality when they see it. We readily recommend Ezard House to any sophisticated traveler looking for an outstanding experience.
I went to Ezard House for my honeymoon and the experience was completely awful. We were given the worst room (only room withOUT ocean view), even though we paid for a luxuary honeymoon room, the owner is extremely involved in the privacy of the guests, and even though they claim they have a great service, this is the exact opposite of what we have
experienced. The customer is ALWAYS wrong and they often surprise you with charges that you have never approved. It completely ruined our experience in Cape town.
We have just returned from South Africa, where we spent the last four nights at Ezard House. It is a spectacular small hotel, the views as you walk through the front door are stunning. The (large and well appointed) room we had overlooked the koi pond, which was pleasant, but a sea view would have been much better, we will know to ask next time!
But what sets this hotel apart for me, is the service, which is attentive, cheerful and personal. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything was done with a smile.
Breakfast was excellent, dinner was good, but it is also worth going down to Camps Bay to eat.
The self drive day trip to Cape Point that Ezard House supply directions for is a must.
Altogether an excellent and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
