Vicky's Bed and BreakfastAddress: C-685A Kiyane Street, Site C, Khayelitsha, Cape Town view map
Vicky's Bed and Breakfast is like most houses in Khayelitsha, it is built of corrugated iron and wood. It took the owners about two months to finish it, because they built it with their own hands! As her guest house has grown in popularity, Vicky has been able to extend her property, and it is now a double storey.
It faces east and gets a lot of sunlight in the morning. There is enough room between the house and the street for cars to park and children to play. On hot Saturday afternoons, we like to put chairs outside and watch the busy world of the township pass by.
Vicky's husband designed the interior of the house. It's very comfortable, and her visitors are always surprised by how big it seems on the inside when it seems so small from the outside. Her husband decorated the living room and hallway with special tiles and wood; they also like to hang pictures on the walls and display their collections of porcelain animals and special bottles. There are pictures from Vicky's past guests hanging throughout the house.
The shared living area has local TV and a DVD player. The kitchen is available to the guests for coffe and tea making facilities and for use of the refrigeratorand dinner is served with no extra costs.
There is also an honesty bar for guests. Visit the "Waterfront" - a corrugated iron and wood tavern - across the road with pool tables and braai (BBQ) stands. Vicky or one of her friends can take you on a walking tour of the neighborhood. Full tours of Khayelitsha can also be arranged.
