SALA is located in the beautiful green Southern Suburbs where Table Mountain watches your every move.
We have 3 different types of accommodation:
1. Host Family Accommodation
Our most popular choice of accommodation is our "Homestay families". Students like this option because they get to live with a family and they get to experience the famous South African warmth and hospitality. There are lots of benefits to taking this form of accommodation, i.e. you constantly get to practice your English, you communicate and interact with South African families, you experience the culture, you make friends and build relationships with foreigners which often last a lifetime. However the number one reason students choose "Homestay families" is because they get the "REAL" South African experience, the one you don't see in the glossy tourist books.
All "Homestay Standard" options include a private single room with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities. Meals are not included unless students request them. Double Rooms are also available on request but these are subject to availability.
2. Bed and Breakfast Accommodation
A short walking distance to our school is the "Harfield Guest Villa" and “Anne’s Corner”, two of the most beautiful Bed & Breakfast’s in the Southern Suburbs. They have wonderfully friendly, professional staff and they offer a fantastic 4-star service. This includes a swimming pool with a sundeck and stunning views of Table Mountain, guest lounges with warm fireplaces, wonderful Cape breakfasts with homemade breads and laundry, fax, email and internet facilities.
Here we have a choice of a Classic Suite or a Classic Cottage with self-catering facilities.
3. Hotel Accommodation
The Vineyard Hotel in Newlands offers luxury and style. Just a short walk from the stylish Cavendish Square and Newlands Cricket & Rugby Stadia. This 4-star hotel has all the modern comforts and services one would expect from a top class hotel.
Here we have a choice of a Courtyard facing room or a Mountain facing room.
