The little extras were just part of our host's fantastic attitude making sure all our needs were met. Simon even arranged for a wine tasting at a fantastic vineyard during our tour of the wine lands! Brilliant!

Everything turned out well with staying in Kommetjie close to our family. Corne and Bill are wonderful hosts. They made us feel home. We enjoyed our stay in this new and modern house with great views from the terrace. Of course it was very clean, towels including beach towels have been available and changed regularly. The kitchen is well equipped, the fridge with its ice machine was my brothers favorite. The beach is very close and invites for running or long walks. Thank you again for the lovely home you gave us. We really enjoyed it

Simon's Town and Mermaid Rock Cottage was a perfect "base-camp" for us. The Cottage is so well kept. Everything was clean and nicely in order when we arrived, it felt very welcoming. The service from Barry and Karon at Engel & Voelkers has also been very good, they always answered e-mails and phone calls immediately. We hope to come back soon again!
