Gone are the days when you have to travel forever and a day for your weekend getaway! Why? Because we've just realised that there is plenty in the way of city escape right on our very own Cape Town doorstep. And we're not talking facebrick guesthouses called Parowdise and other delights on the far side of the boerewors curtain. We're talking prime self-catering getaways dotted up and down the stunning Peninsula coastline, places you and your fellow Capetonians would sell their mother for. It's early days, but watch this space - some seriously good self-catering Cape Peninsula gems are heading your way.
