A big warm welcome to 


SUNSET LOFT

We know that you can’t wait to get out and explore amazing Cape Town!
So here is just very briefly the most important information for you to make the most of your stay… 

IN YOUR ROOM

STAY CONNECTED

Choose the wireless network for your room or the one with the best signal. Password is monkey47 for all networks!

CHECK IN/OUT

Ask us and we will try to meet your requirements. You can always keep the luggage in the house after checking out of your room. Just take all the time you need to say good-bye or to add a bit more extra luggage.

YOUR VALUABLES

Each room is equipped with an electronic safe in the cupboard. It is open and the instructions to set your personal security code are in the safe. So better take the manual out before you lock the safe! And please remember to leave the safe open/unlocked when you check out!

ABOUT THE REMOTE ON YOUR HOUSE KEY

You don’t need to be an engineer to understand the functions of the remote control! It’s as simple as that:
> Blue: Operates the driveway electric gate (sometimes). If not use your muscle power and report please!
> Red: Outside Alarm on/off (if you press it by accident, you will hear a beep in the house, just press it again)

SLEEPING MODE

Some people might have had an exhausting day exploring all the lovely things in Cape Town and would love to have a nice relaxing sleep to recharge their batteries.
For a good neighborhood please respect the night’s rest from 11 pm to 8 am.

HOUSEKEEPING

In high season, you will see Ellen usually on weekdays preparing your room, bathroom and the rest of the house. In low season you wont see her every day!!  We have towels for the room, the garden and the beach. We have towels for the room, the garden and the beacDont mix them up or Ellen will get a bit angry! Lets save water and keep them as long as you feel it is right! rule of thumb is twice a week!

TOWELS

We provide towels for the room, garden, and beach. To avoid Ellen feeling a bit sad, please keep them separate. Let's be mindful of water usage and use towels as long as possible. If you genuinely need fresh towels, kindly leave the used ones on the floor, but consider if it's truly necessary before doing so.

IN AND AROUND THE HOUSE

KITCHEN

There's ample space for everyone! Find your room number on a sticker in the shelves or refrigerator. If you fancy a braai, the grill is on the terrace. Braai wood is available at the petrol station or might be found under the braai!

For dirty dishes, load them into the dishwasher, and for an extra smile from Ellen, press the 'start' button. Items that prefer handwashing can be left in the scullery for Ellen to take care of.

SWIMMING POOL

At times, the pool may be covered to maintain a comfortable water temperature. If you wish to swim, simply roll up the cover using the handle on the side of the wooden box. Sunbed cushions are stored in the small garage; please return them in the evening. Beach towels are available at the entrance; kindly refrain from using our white towels for the beach to keep them pristine and to prevent Ellen from being sad.

Guests are reminded to exercise caution while using the swimming pool facilities and swim at their own risk. The owners/operators do not assume responsibility for pool use. Please exercise vigilance, especially with children, as we cannot take responsibility for their safety. Drowning can occur in a matter of seconds.

PARKING

Please park your car in front of the big white garage door in 4, Isabella Road (3 cars fit) and on the grey gravel next to the wall (2 cars fit). And don’t leave your laptop in the car.

CLOSING OF MAIN DOOR

When you leave the house especially during the evening please make sure the main door on the terrace of the house is locked!

The easiest is to get a local prepaid SIM card which is available in supermarkets, petrol stations and shopping centers.

… AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST ABOUT OUR STAFF

ELLEN, THE ANGEL OF THE HOUSE

As you may have noticed during your previous stays, we've made some small changes to the building. In 2019, we added a beautiful studio apartment for Ellen.

We're delighted to share that she now resides with us at Sunset Loft, and we're more than happy to have her as part of our team!

We are very happy about all these improvements for you and at the same time we also promise: We won’t stop to improve!



Thank you so much for being our guests – we love having you here!

SOME MORE WORDS ON

… THE ENVIRONMENT, SUSTAINABILITY & SAFTY 

CLEANING PRODUCTS

We are changing all our cleaning products and also the hand soap in the dispenser in your room to the amazing products from “better earth” (check out their website www.betterearth.co.za), a local South African company. Their products are

> free of sulphated surfactants, parabens, animal products and synthetic fragrances
> never tested on animals and are endorsed by ‘Beauty Without Cruelty’ and ‘The Vegan Society’
> completely bio-degradable



They support ethical farmers all the time and local farmers wherever possible and manufacture locally with every effort made to reduce our carbon footprint.

We are very happy that we found them as they fulfill all criteria that are important to us.

SOLAR PANELS FOR THE GEYSER

In 2018, we installed a state of the art solar panel system on the roof to heat up your water for the shower. By doing so we could drastically reduce the energy consumption and are independent from any inconveniences that frequent load shedding might cause.

SOLAR PANELS FOR CLEAN ELECTRICITY

Exciting news! We've recently added a full solar system on the roof with battery buffering, ensuring that load shedding has minimal impact on us. Your stay at our place remains uninterrupted and comfortable even during power challenges.

BOREHOLE WATER

We have independent bore holes to make sure we always have water! 

… ABOUT YOUR SAFETY

NEW ALARM SYSTEM

We renewed the whole alarm system - not only the switch board but also all outside beams!

BURGLAR-PROOFED SHUTTERS

… are now installed in every room and all communal areas. Additionally, we installed a new entrance door with burglar-proofed glass and a security lock.

GARDEN GATE

The garden gate will be closed every night from 8 pm to 7 am. During night, you can always enter the garden using the sliding gate at the small garage or the entrance door next to the big garage that opens with the small key attached to your key ring.
