Welcome to AuPear Boutique Guesthouse
A UNIQUE SELF-CATERING GUEST HOUSE
The French term au pair, meaning "on a par" or "equal to", indicates that the relationship is intended to be one of equals.
Relax in the freedom of a guesthouse where you do not have the sense of intrusion into someone's home. Au Pear is an old Cape cottage with four luxury suites surrounding a vine covered courtyard garden.
Dim all the lights, sink between the 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets with soft down duvets and happy Hugger bed warmers and feel luxuriated by the Charlotte Rhys body products, fluffy gowns and slippers. All rooms lead out to either the verandah or patio and have both baths and open showers as well as hair dryers, luggage racks, tea and coffee making facilities, bar fridges and electronic laptop safes.
Guests are encouraged to use the kitchen and dining facilities to make meals and entertain friends both inside and out.
