Spacious studio apartment; has lovely sea views, private entrance, king-sized bed and a small futon. Includes an en-suite bathroom, kitchenette and lounge w/ sliding door to private outdoor terrace. A gas braai (barbecue) is available on request.
This contemporary home was built to take in views of the mountain, ocean and sky with lots of natural light. Construction on the house was completed in early 2015. The residence comprises three self catering units; the Main House, a Studio Apartment and a Single Room, each with their own private entrances.
This listing is for the "Feel-At-Home Apartment in Onrus", which is our studio apartment. It is a great option for those looking for clean, spacious and comfortable accommodation with lots of natural light.
The front yard features a rock garden with indigenous plants that blend beautifully with the natural landscape, creating a sense-of-place and a unique identity.
Access to the studio apartment is down the driveway below the main house. Those enjoying the comforts of this flatlet have access to a private terrace with outdoor chairs. A gas braai (barbecue) is available on request. Guests also have access to shared laundry facilities.
Brian and Leonie Croucher, my parents, live on site year round and are available to assist guests as needed. As long time expats and jet-setters they love meeting new people and are always eager to help or offer advice and make suggestions.
Premium satellite TV can be arranged in the main house and apartment at a nominal fee.
As owners of a private home and not a commercial business we encounter higher maintenance fees and do not have full time staff. For short term stays a modest cleaning fee is required per stay. For longer stays we are able to offer regular cleaning services for an additional fee; the fee varies depending on frequency. Please contact us to discuss your needs.
LINEN AND TOWELS
We have provided clean bed linens and, towels or use in the bathroom only. Though we technically do not provide beach towels, we understand that some of our guests are travelling from far and wide and may not have room for bulky beach towels. Please contact us in advance to discuss your needs so that we have enough time to prepare. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience, but the cost of any damaged, stained or sandy towels and/or linens that have clearly been taken out of the accommodation will be charged for.
We do not take a security deposit but require guests to be honest and reliable and inform us of any damage / breakages. Items such as crockery and glassware should be replaced. In the unlikely event of damage to the property, inform us and we will assist with repairs/replacement.
There are shared laundry facilities on the property. We require a nominal fee to assist us with water and electricity bills. We ask that all guests adhere to our laundry facility rules, which are posted in the laundry room. For the comfort of all our guests we have set hours during which these facilities are available for use. For the sake of conservation we ask that guests try to limit their wash loads if possible. Alternately there are laundromats in the vicinity.
PACK AND SHIP
We are seasoned travellers and know all too well that occasionally we make large purchases and need to get these items shipped safely to our homes. As an experienced globetrotter and former warehouse and shipping executive, Brian Croucher, one of the property's owners, can assist you with the packing and shipping of all of your purchases that are too large to take with you on board your flight or cruise back home.
The inside of our property is a smoke-free environment. We are willing to accommodate smokers as long as they smoke outside and properly extinguish their butts into the garbage or an ashtray that will be provided. Ashtrays cannot be left full of butts outside — the wind will blow them — we ask that smokers kindly dispose of their butts into a secure garbage can provided at the side of the house.
South Africa's natural habitat is prone to wildfires. We are currently experiencing a serious drought, making the dried brush more susceptible to catching fire. Combine a lit cigarette or butt with the occasional strong wind and you may cause a serious blaze. Cigarettes are a major contributor to wildfires in our area so we ask you to please be responsible when smoking.
We apologise for the inconvenience but we do not allow extra guests beyond the amount of guests this listing can accommodate. We have other listings for the same property should you wish to book those for friends or family. Please check our other listings for availability.
We are sorry we are not able to allow any pets at this time.
We would like to provide all our guests with a stress-free, tranquil environment. We appreciate keeping noise to reasonable limits; being mindful of electronic devices (radios, computers, games, etc.).
A little respect goes a long way. We are honest, open and friendly people. We've travelled the world and come to respect a lot of different cultures. We treat everyone fairly with the same amount of thoughtfulness and expect the same of our guests towards us, our property and our neighbours. Thanks in advance!
My name is Leanne MacDonell, née Croucher. I am a graphic designer and creative director with a lot of experience and love for content strategy. I am also an artist currently exploring new opportunities in surface patterns and stationery design.
My family and I are originally from South Africa and have also lived in Taiwan, Thailand and United States.
While I currently live in Toronto with my Canadian husband, my parents, Brian and Leonie Croucher (see pictures 2 and 3 in profile), currently live in Onrus at the property I have listed with AirBnB.
My family and I have spent a lot of time travelling the world. We even spent a good portion of our lives living out of hotels (not recommended!). As long time expats and jet-setters we love meeting new people and are always eager to help or offer advice and make suggestions.
We don't know about you but nothing makes us feel more at home when we're travelling than a clean, comfortable room with an updated Western bathroom and hospitable hosts — much more than you get from some hotels these days. We believe that's what we have to offer at our home in Onrus and we'd love to share it with you.
We never know where we will head next... We look forward to future stays with AirBnB hosts.
