Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.

Stonehurst at St. James Self Catering Accommodation In St. James

Situated on the warm Indian Ocean side of Cape Town, Stonehurst has been in Judy's family for 50 years. The house, built in 1928, has original sash windows with wooden shutters and beautiful Oregon pine floors. Stonehurst is beautifully decorated, with an eclectic mix of old and new. Judy and Peter have traveled extensively and this is evident from some of the interesting items from the Middle East. Stonehurst is nestled into the base of the mountain, a 1-minute walk from sea, with wonderful views and peace and tranquility away from the noise of traffic and trains.

During the whale season, you can see and hear the whales from the house, often breaching in the late afternoon sunlight. Take a stroll down to the famous Rhodes Cottage Museum is typical of the historical importance of the St James area.

A short walk in the other direction takes you past Danger Beach to Kalk Bay with its art galleries, unusual decorating and fashion shops, and a wide selection of excellent restaurants. Kalk Bay has the picture perfect harbour where you can watch the traditional fishing boats unloading their catch of the day.

For those more energetic there are a number of walks up the mountain that start close the Stonehurst.

Accomodation
A large lounge, with couches in the windows for whale watching and quiet reading. There is a wood-burning stove, wood supplied, for the cool winter evenings. The rear of the lounge has a TV, with DStv and video/DVD player. There are DVD's and videos in the house, as well as an ample selection of books, board games and cards. A separate 8-seater dining room, with wonderful views over the sea, to enjoy with your croissants bought from the local bakery! The kitchen is well appointed, with dishwasher and all the usual mod-cons and has a couch for long chats while you cook risotto or bake muffins, using the cookery books in the kitchen.

There is a large courtyard outside the kitchen, with a barbecue and a table that seats 10. There is a 2 man and a 1 man kayak, with paddles supplied, if you are brave (or foolish) enough to want to paddle in the ocean.

Stonehurst can sleep 8 people comfortably. The bedrooms are over 2 levels with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs, and a large suite with dressing room and bathroom downstairs.

Upstairs accommodation comprises of a large double bedroom and 2 bedrooms with twin beds and 2 bathrooms.

Bedroom 1: The large main bedroom elegantly appointed with a 4-poster queen bed, bedecked with flowers and fairy-lights, and a stunning view of the entire False Bay. The fireplace is surrounded by hand-painted flower tiles, and the soft white curtains move gently in the breeze. Crisp white embroidered linen bedecks the bed. Bedroom 2 and 3: 2 single beds in each bedroom with crisp white linen and throws for afternoon siestas. Bedroom 4 - The master bedroom is situated downstairs: an exceptionally large en-suite bedroom, with a 4-poster queen bed, and decorated with luxurious finishes with a silk canopy over the bed, and a beautiful art-deco lounge suite make this room wonderfully romantic. Ostrich feathers add a touch of whimsy and this bedroom is perfect for a romantic weekend away. Wonderful sea-views. There is also a fireplace for those cool winter evenings. Stonehurst is a non-smoking establishment and good children are welcome!

Stonehurst is 20 minutes from Cape Town city bowl and V&A Waterfront.

We look forward to sharing our home with you.
