The place is nice and very relaxing here!


We enjoyed being in Bradclin House, sitting in the garden for our breakfast and a sundowner. We were a company of three - the facilities (two convenient bedrooms, one bathroom) were good. Its location is convenient, near town and the highway to other parts of the country.

SP Lovett - Rome, Italy (Stayed Bradclin House, Feathers Apartment)

After so many wonderful times spent here over so many years, it’s hard to think of something new to say. So your favourite Irish-Italian thought to write you a limerick instead. Here goes ...

Bradclin’s the best place to stay
When in Cape Town for work or play

Weave such a welcoming spell
That you find you just can’t stay away!

Pascal – France (Stayed at Bradclin House, Pinelands)

Nice accommodation, safe and quite area! I recommend ;)

Gerard – UK (Stayed at Bradclin Sport, Newlands)

What can I say? The best stay I've had in Cape Town in a very long time. Immaculate when I entered with every appliance in the kitchen possible, neat and tidy bedroom as was the bathroom and lounge area, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Judelle and James' AirBnB in Rondebosch, with Newlands Rugby ground just a block away. After I picked up the keys at the beginning of my stay, the next time I saw James was as I checked out 2 weeks later. The apartment was serviced as was promised in the contract midweek in the second week (I began my stay on a Tuesday) and was in as immaculate a condition as when I entered the first day. I highly recommend this apartment as it is very central with easy access to the various highways in Cape Town. Well done Judelle and James Drake.

Guest (Stayed at Guest – Bradclin @ Mutual)

Hi I would like to say that i truly enjoyed my stay . Judelle was a great host . The area was safe n close by to main attractions. I will highly recommend this home .

Flavia (Stayed at Bradclin @ York)

A cosy and neat two bedroom apartment just a few minutes away from the Howard Centre gave us a home away from home for a few nights. Our host was very friendly and would check in on us to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Perfect location and a great living space with everything we needed. Thank you Judelle.

Jennifer (Stayed at Bradclin Sport, Newlands)

Bradclin Sport, Newlands Judelle’s apartment is superbly situated in a quiet location. Judelle and James are excellent hosts and the apartment has everything you need. I can definitely recommend the apartment.

Lucy (Stayed at Bradclin Beach, Blouberg)

Great venue perfect for us. Close to beach, clean with special touches, lovely view from balcony.

Kamogelo (Stayed at Bradclin Sport, Newlands)

I had a beautiful holiday, Judelle was absolutely an amazing host, everything was perfect from the location, amenities, cleanliness. Judelle and her husband James were very caring and kind. I dearly recommend anyone to stay at this apartment. It's quite stylish and there's a breeze of fresh air especially when you are looking to get away, nice and quite👌👌👌

Fareeda (Stayed at Bradclin @ Mutual, Pinelands)

Clean, quiet and conveniently situated apartment. Judelle, our host, was very friendly and helpful. Apartment is cosy, cute and clean. Perfect for a small family!

Nicole (Stayed at Bradclin @ Mutual, Pinelands)

Lovely, clean apartment. We had a wonderful stay.

Cordelia (Stayed at Bradclin Sport)

Judelle and Your Team, We love Bradclin Newlands. The place is beautiful and comfortable, feels like being home. Keep up the good work, this is wonderful, beats a lot of hotels I have been to. It combines luxury, comfort and a home feel and well equipped with supplies and tools for a long stay. Rare to find in many Guesthouses. Great Idea you have here. You could start a "BRADCLIN LUXURY GROUP". Regards, Cordelia.

Laura (Stayed at Bradclin Blouberg)

I would just like to say a huge thank you for our special holiday. I spent two days relaxing before the family came down. Bradclin Beach is super and I thoroughly enjoyed tucking into a good book! The view is great and everything is so tastefully decorated. We loved it. It is also in walking distance from everywhere!


Thanks Judelle - by the way South Africans should be proud of the customer service offered in the RSA accommodation sector - second to none in my experience! best wishes Dave


Thought I'd send you a photo of Joshua. We will definitely be staying with you again when we visit Cape Town again. Fondest regards Mandy


How are you doing ? We loved our visit to SA and really enjoyed meeting you and your husband in Pinelands. I hope the world economy is not to adverse to your life. We think of our times in your neighborhood often


Thanks alot. Your guest house is world standard - Simon

Liz & Dave

We really missed the warmth of Cape Town. Thanks again for your hospitality, we really enjoyed our holiday with you - Liz & Dave


We are so grateful for your kindness and hospitality while in Cape Town[for honeymoon] in your house in Pinelands


Many, many thanks for another fabulous stay. Both Quen and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Bradclin, and I loved our daily chats!!!

Ken & Edo

Again, thanks so much for your hospitality! This is just so warm!! Hope we will see each other again in the future!! Good luck to you!


I really would like to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our "Home away from Home" stay with you and found it so peaceful, comfortable and really what we were looking for in a Self Catering - safe parking; a comfortable bed; a lovely breakfast and everything that we needed, including a warm, hospitable and welcoming Hostess & Host in you and your husband. So good luck and hope that you continue to meet interesting people and provide others with just as comfortable a stay as you gave us!

Magda and Claude

Our tours were very interesting. We make also a sightseeing tour and stopped at Table Mountain: very nice! And the beach in Blaauberg was beautiful. The flat was great! Regards!


Just to say once again, thank you so much for all your help. Everything went off without a hitch and all the trainer's were very pleased with the accommodation

Annette & Brett

Your Self Catering was lovely, and it was perfect for us. It was also so great that it was nearby by my aunt's apartment and the town of Pinelands was very cute. Thank you for all of your service and assistance to us. We would DEFINITELY recommend you. Our best wishes, Annette (and Brett)

Kampala, Uganda
I loved the ambience and warmth from the garden and surroundings.
Sydney, Australia

I stayed at Bradclin House for two nights and these were one of those memorable moments in my life. Although my two children had not come along as planned for these two days and the apartment had been set for all of us. I did not miss them for these two nights.

I felt warm and secure and the environment was just perfect for a break. This is one of the best holiday homes i have encoutered in my life. Just peferect for one , two or even a family of four.

"Highly recommended"

North Carolina

We spent a week at Bradclin House and were very happy with both the accommodation and the excellent service from our hosts, Judelle and James. Our flat was spacious, spotless and serene. The sunroom and the lovely garden provided tranquil places to relax at the end of a day's sightseeing. Judelle thoughtfully provides plenty of travel guides in the flat to assist with holiday planning.

Judelle and James were ever friendly and willing to assist with any queries and provide suggestions or directions. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Our stay with them proved a delightful introduction to Cape Town and South Africa.

"A perfect place to stay"

San Francisco

After spending 2 weeks at the Bradclin house in Pinelands,we would highly recommend staying there.The place was beautifully decorated,spotlessly clean,and the garden & pool a quiet oasis.It was very convenient for travel to all tourist sites & local shops & Judelle our host was extremely helpful with arrangements & info.

All in all we had a wonderful stay & hope to be back soon.

"A place for special care"

Cape Town

While on a site visit to the nearby LEAP School that our nonprofit organization (Teach with Africa) is supporting, we were fortunate to have found this wonderful home-like environment.

There was nothing that was too much trouble for these caring innkeepers, and we felt safely attended to during our entire stay.

A warm experience all around!

"A spacious and comfortable Self Catering"


Not a holiday but work, and I was fortunate to have stayed with Judelle & James. It was like being back with my Mom at home, my washing was done, the room was cleaned the bed made, due to my work hours Judelle ensured that I had GR8 food to make, quick & easy, when I got home.

I then stayed at their Flat in Newlands, again the same treatment.

It was just so easy not having to worry about anything - I am so thankful for the kind care and attention I received. It was a sad day for me when I had to leave. I would definately advise all my friends and business associates to, sit back & chill at Bradclin House.

"So much better than a hotel"


As a regular business traveller, hotels have become featureless and lacking in that personal touch.

By contrast, Bradclin house provides a much more comfortable feel, with hospitality when you need it, solitude when you don't. The Suite is more like being at home, with plenty of space, even better though as, every day, the rooms are cleaned and tidied, the fridge is stocked.

"Sehr großzügig und gemütlich" Freising Feb 15, 2008

nach drei Wochen traumhafter Südafrika-Reise waren die letzten beiden Nächte vor unserer Heimreise im Bradclin House noch besonders schön. Es ist großzügig gestaltet, sehr gut ausgestattet und ein wunderbarer Ort der Erholung.

Elkader, Iowa

Wir können es uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!

"Great place away from home."


After a very long flight from the states, we were warmly greeted at the gate by James and we knew immediately that our stay at the Bradclin House was destined to be a great time. Having traveled to S. Africa for our son's wedding, Judelle and James went out of their way to make us feel welcomed.

Traveling with our other son and family(2 toddlers) we found our accomodations excellent. Having our own suite made it easy for us to enjoy the family but have an escape when needed, perfect arrangements for all of us. As owners of a Self Catering ourselves, we hope our guests leave us as satisfied as we were with our stay at the Bradclin House.
