GIVEAWAY: 2-nights break at Cordelle in Simon’s Town.

Hey there guys, I haven’t had one of these in a while so I’m excited about this one. Nicole & Bruce Johnston got hold of me the other day about their new little guest house in Simon’s Town, Cape Town called Cordelle. This sweet little place is nestled at the base of Mt. Pleasant in Simon’s Town with amazing views of the harbour and surrounding beaches.

- A pathway leads guests to the historical Victorian town, whereby a myriad of shops, restaurants & museums can be enjoyed. Cordelle is a stones-throw away from the legendary Boulders beach which is host to a large Jackass Penguin colony & other marine life.

This unique self-catering unit has been beautifully designed to suite the contemporary traveler & small family. With eloquent decor & stylish nuances, the space exudes a luxurious but homely atmosphere.

I think this spot looks and sounds amazing and from the photos you can see that they have really made such a cool effort to make it something special – I would live there nevermind just visit. Nicole, Bruce you keen to adopt? I bake and I can brush my own hair.

Anyway this couple has been kind enough to offer one of you guys 2-free nights (subject to availability) at their pretty Cordelle Guest House and all you have to do is:

1: Leave me a comment on my site to enter

2: Reblog or tweet (using the hashtag #CordellGuestHouse) about this giveaway and leave those links in your comment to gain you extra entries.

3: This competition will end on the 31st of January 2013 and I will randomly be picking a winner

4: Flights are not included in the prize

  47. I’m not entering the competition, but I’m so glad to see Wolves and Lucky Pony up and running for 2013! Are there any more of your great Wolves events to look forward to this year? I’d love to be able to attend something like the fashion swap, the gift exchange or the scrabble tournament as I’ve always managed to miss most of those in spectacular moron-mode before. Something like the Light Grey Art Lab’s all-night art sit-in would be a great thing to see happen at Wolves- I can just imagine the kind of awesome things that might come out of an evening of creative people just hanging out and making multi-media art until the wee hours.
