Bringing the world to our door step and beyond into our home has been a privilege one doesn’t often get to experience or be a part of. Sharing our lives with different people from around the world shape us, broaden us, bring us closer, help us realise what is important and most importantly confirm to us what is close to our hearts – the people of the world.

Philip, our first guest, was born in Japan and lives in the United States.

Our home in Cape Town has been a refuge for many people, with deep conversations had late into the nights about anything from the Creation of the universe to what cafés have the best coffee in town and anything in between. It is these people, our guests which have now become our friends.

We hosted over 35 guests from over 15 countries in our Local Vibes room.

What has been most special is that not only are many of these people now our friends, but they each have their own stories…stories which transcend any country’s boundary, class or race.

Our last guest, Haesoo, from South Korea pitched his tent in our garden for a week. It was a particular privilege to assist him with his preparations in his 3 month overland bike journey from our home in Cape Town to Nairobi, Kenya.
