Our pool                                                                                 Sunset on Camps Bay!

Wonderful Hotel Manolo House is  a gorgeous 5 bedroom Villa overlooking Table Mountain, in the heart of Capetown. I love the name and my Manolo Blahnik’s will feel at home!!! Perfect size minipool. Love this hotel! Had my first cappucino in 6 months and it was perfect, not too strong and a great fresh mango juice! We had fantastic Tigerprawns grilled and grilled sole! Now in my white bed going to rest….I will show you a picture of my bed and my outdoor shower tomorrow! Buonanotte!
