San Francisco, California
May 9, 2007
I booked this place a month before arriving and paid 1375 ZAR for one night for five guys, which roughly comes to be about $38 per person and includes breakfast. Like their website says, "Champagne accommodations at lemonade prices." Their website is www.abigails.co.za/map.htm The location is nice and out in the northern suburb of Parkview and the best way to get there is probably renting your own vehicle. They have gated parking just in case you do drive, or you can cab. I didn't really see public transportation since it was a pretty quiet neighborhood and plus we were always exploring the town in our rental car.Each room each had separate beds, bathroom with showers and a small kitchen just in case you decide you wanted to cook. A nice courtyard and pool just in case you wanted to stay on the premise but pretty quite while we were there on Easter Sunday. They do have a couple of dogs and cats running around and watch your step there's plenty of dog crap laying around the courtyard but the next morning they come around and clean it up.
