Owner / Manager Parker Cottage Guesthouse
My name is Pamela Nayler. Originally from Baden, a small but beautiful historic city in Switzerland, I have been lucky enough to have bought Parker Cottage Guesthouse in March 2017. After graduating business school in Zürich, I have been a Flight Attendant with Swissair for many years, exploring the world. I instantly fell in love with this stunning country of South Africa on my first trip, came to live in George (beautiful Garden Route) and worked as a national tour guide in this stunning country.
My dream was always to live in Cape Town as for me it still is the best city in the world. Follow the stories of my team...
Tomas lives in Sea Point.
Phaedra lives in the Bo Kaap.
Donny plays for a local football team called Napoli (no, not the Italian one!) and makes it known that unless he is playing, the team loses. Donny's big ambition is to become an electrician one day.
Jameson's working his way up the ladder at Parker Cottage and now is an excellent waiter and guest entertainer, he has the most beautiful sense of humour and the nicest smile in Africa.
Although she is the quiet one in the team, every now and then she surprises us with her beautiful sense of humour and dance moves in the kitchen when she thinks no one is watching!
Nompilo worked her way up at Parker Cottage and is now not only our senior housekeeper but an excellent cook as well. We simply couldn't do without her. She has a wicked sense of humour: be careful! She also greets every guest she meets with her traditional isiXhosa handshake.
She has been a treasured member of the Parker Cottage team for a couple of years, and is our sunshine in our daily routine. Nobody can beat her sense of humour, and when she laughs you cannot help but to simply fall in with her happiness. She is very active in her local church as well.
Olga is a proud mother of four, of which Donny is the eldest.
Chris started his company with an old BMW he borrowed from a friend: now he has four drivers and guides working for him and five luxury vehicles to show Parker Cottage guests the best of the Cape.
They've been doing “Flyball” together for a couple of weeks now. We're still not sure who has more fun! Have a look on the 'web and see what "Flyball" is all about...it's truly so much fun!
