Cape Town

First year anni at Old Mac Daddy


yip. It’s been one year of marriage : ) and Dylan took me to a trailer park. hee. but this was no ordinary trailer park this was one of the coolest hotel concepts in one of the most beautiful settings i’ve ever seen! It’s the Old Mac Daddy in Elgin Valley – the inland cousin of the Grand Daddy Hotel in Long Street, Cape Town.

Like it’s cousin in Long Street it is thoroughly designed from the showers, to the stairs, to the dining room, to the library. It has a distinctly¬†Scandinavian¬†style, made predominantly of wood and aluminium it is clean and beautiful and makes you feel quickly at home and completed relaxed. While the design language is clean and fresh the inside of each trailer is mad and magical! Each with a different theme designed by a SA creative, they are incredibly designed and decorated – the detail is crazy! See more on each trailer here.

Here are some of my snaps of all the things I saw

and OUR airstream trailer  РThe Yellow Submarine! (these last few nice photos are by Dylan, he had the patience enough to get out a tripod)

We had two amazing nights there, but I recommend going for a week. Once you settle in you just want to STAY! The only thing is it’s not self catering so you have to eat at the restaurant, which is still nice.

bye bye my beautiful trailer. I will miss you.
