Grand Daddy Airstream Trailers
Did you know?
Daddy Long Legs is the only hospitality group in the world that can lay claim to having created a penthouse trailer park on top of a city hotel.
The concept of a penthouse trailer park on top of a Cape Town hotel is creative and outlandish... and is certainly a talking point for visitors to the Mother City.
The Grand Daddy penthouse trailer park is a novel idea in every sense, and easily fits into the Daddy Long Legs offbeat brand for travellers who want a bit more than the average city hotel experience.
The Daddy Long Legs concept began with an independent traveller's hotel in the heart of Cape Town. Each room was individually decorated and conceptualised by a local artist, and the crazy concept was extremely popular with locals and foreign visitors.. Building on the idea that tourists to this country are looking for something a little different, the owners went a few steps further and created a penthouse trailer park on top of the Grand Daddy Hotel in Cape Town.
A collection of vintage Airstream caravans consisting of 7 two-sleeper suites, are the result of homegrown creativity and ingenuity as a group of artists were let loose on the trailers. There's the Afro-Funk trailer inspired by Cape Town's street fashion; there's the Dorothy trailer with its Duck-egg-blue foundation and gargantuan white polka dots; the Ballad of John and Yoko trailer is an artistic tribute to the famous couple; Earthcote moontides - a trailer-type symphony of gentle colour; the Love of Lace trailer (say no more); the Goldilocks and the 3 Bears trailer (a fairytale reinvented!); and the Pleasantville trailer which mimics a utopian '50's-style home sweet home.
You might be staying in a trailer park, but every comfort is on tap. They Airstreams are well insulated, air-conditioned and have hot and cold running water (as well as the necessary ablutions). You can even invite newfound friends over to watch a movie at The Pink Flamingo outdoor cinema...!
So book yourself a trailer atop the Grand Daddy hotel, the owners call it Africa's take on American iconography - and our international visitors just love the idea.
