The view from the property is spectacular and I would highly recommend this property to anyone planning to visit the Cape Town area.

Corne and her husband were fantastic hosts - it was our daughter's 21st birthday on the day we arrived, and she had booked a lovely restaurant for us in Kalk Bay, and traveled there to leave 21st balloons and decorate the table. This was SO appreciated, thank you! The house is a few steps to the most amazing beach - too cold to swim in the sea, but fantastic to watch the sunset or sunrise - we did both. Take the chance to walk along the beach and up to the deli (about 25 mins) in the morning for bread and croissants and time it as the sun comes up over the mountains - fantastic. Bear in mind that here you are a little further from Cape Town - about a 45 minute drive outside of rush hour - so plan accordingly, but we traveled to Camps Bay, Table Mountain, Hout Bay, Boulders Beach (for the penguins), and all points in between very easily. We would recommend this house to anyone - and where else can your evenings include a game of snooker on a full size table! Thanks Corne and Bill x
