Boutique Hotel – 134 Long Street
If you long for a fresh-air and apple-pie holiday inspired by the watermelon-chin memories of childhood but don’t think this needs to come at the cost of conscious creative design, then Old Mac Daddy - just outside Cape Town is for you.
Set on the pine-whispering slopes of a beautiful corner of the Elgin Valley, Old Mac Daddy is a collection of vintage Airstream Trailer Suites, each designed by an artist, designer or creative living and working in Cape Town that is a place for people to stay.
Fully catered and serviced; Old Mac Daddy offers trailer units with artist-themed bedrooms and contemporary living spaces. The Barn (communal area) is a slick but comfortable space to take in the views, enjoy some good food and dip into the bar. The pool and deck is a sure winner on summer days – if you aren’t at the dam – and roaring fireplaces and a library keep it cosy in winter.
