The original house (Oldsworth) was built in the early 1930's when the act of building was still done in the age old tradition of the masonry art.
The ceilings are typical of the period, high for the coolness of the South African summers. The wooden floors lend that little extra to create an authentic antique atmosphere, not to mention the décor with appropriate furniture.
Upon entering the house it is as if time has come to a standstill and the pleasant restfulness overwhelms you, stripping you immediately of all urges to carry on with the rushes of the times.
Oldsworth Accommodation is situated in the town Strand, a bustling metropolis of some 50 000 residents, which is situated on the shores of False Bay.
