"Make a holiday rental home or villa in Cape Town your home away from home Cape Town, a sophisticated elegant city of great character, is the gateway to South Africa. Renting self catering Cape Town accommodation will undoubtedly be the first of many visits to Cape Town and the Western Cape, as the city has a charm and magnetism that will keep you returning year after year. Old and new, natural and man made all mingle harmoniously creating a fascinatingly unique city where the welcome is warm, the culture vibrant and the landscape dramatic. Things to do in Cape Town, South Africa Under the dominant view of Table Mountain, Cape Town has much to offer. The many clean, sandy beaches are some of the most beautiful urban beaches in the world, and there is a magnificent choice for sunbathers, water sports enthusiasts and naturists. The best beaches for sunbathing, swimming, frisbee and football are the Camps Bay beaches, just minutes from the city centre. There are a large number of surfing, scuba diving, windsurfing (boardsailing), and fishing beaches, or for those who wish for slightly warmer waters or naturist beaches, False Bay, Kalk Bay or Simonstown are perfect. The World Heritage site of Table Mountain is a National Icon. Rock climbers and mountaineers have a haven for climbing, and if that is too much effort for you, there is a cable car to the summit, with rocky trails around the summit to enjoy the spectacular 360° views of South Africa. The Angling from Rooikrans, Strandfontein and Cape Hangklip is fantastic, and there is some challenging fishing to be enjoyed. The city itself is a maze of points of interest, museums, galleries and beautiful architecture. However, for myself, the modern, bustling areas of Cape Town are the most interesting, with people adorning cafes, restaurants and the lively street markets. There are so many reasons to take Cape Town holiday accommodation, it is impossible to describe more than a pinch, and once you have come here once and scratched the surface, you will be returning to the self catering villa in Cape Town time and time again. Places to holiday in Cape Town, South Africa Robben Island is one of the most significant historic places in South Africa. As a colony for dangerous political prisoners from 1960, it was 'home' to Nelson Mandela for over twenty years. Today, a limited number of visitors are allowed to visit daily, with tours of the island, and walking and cycle routes into the nature areas of the island. For nature lovers, the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens holds over 500 species of indigenous plants. The Good Hope Nature Reserve is a magnificent local park where baboon, zebra, steenbok and 150 species of birds can be seen. Boat trips can be taken to see the seals of Hout Bay or to Table Bay, or children can enjoy the rides of Ratanga Junction, the 'wildest place in Africa'! It is a large theme park rivalling the Disney parks. The Tygerburg Zoo is the largest in Africa, and is in within easy reach of all self catering accommodation in Cape Town. Weather in Cape Town, South Africa Cape Town has a magnificent moderate climate, so is never stiflingly hot or bitterly cold. Summer temperatures can rise into the high 30s (°C), but rarely reach 40°C. Winters are mild, with snow only falling in the mountains, between April and August (winter). Flights to Cape Town, South Africa Cape Town International Airport makes it very easy to reach your Cape Town villa rental from the UK. Flights usually take in the region of 7 hours, and fly from all major British Airports. For cheap flights, try British Airways. "

Spacious Villa With Wonderful Views

5 of 5
The villa was perfect for the start of our holiday in South Africa. Our party was made up of three mature couples. The booking process was very straight forward with excellent communications with Daphne the agent who manages the property. She greeted us on arrival and showed us the villa. Throughout our stay she was always easily contactable for advice if needed. The villa was perfect. The lounge area and kitchen dining area provide loads of space for people to sit together or to find a quiet corner. The villa is very well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The terrace and pool area offers a lovely place to eat, take a dip and enjoy the views. The bedrooms are very comfortable with three of them opening onto a huge upper terrace again with amazing views across False Bay towards Table Mountain. It is a pity there is no furniture on the upper terrace to sit and enjoy the stunning views. The villa is just a short distance from Gordon's Bay with its beautiful beach and many restaurants. We tried quite a few and would certainly recommend Zest as a must to visit. We were delighted with the villa and all it and the area had to offer us during our stay. Thank you Daphne for all the help and advice.

Michael and Sandra were suitably impressed

5 of 5
The cottage is in a secluded part of the garden of the larger house lived in by the landlady, and is approached via a separate driveway which has a secure gate. It offers good privacy. Melissa was extremely helpful and also completely respectful of our privacy. She brought us chilled wine on our arrival. There are 3 very friendly dogs which only occasionally wandered near the cottage, and were quiet and no problem whatsoever. The cottage and garden were delightful, and we enjoyed spending time here relaxing, and not feeling we needed to be out all of the time. The Constantia area is very nice has a safe feel. The cottage feels secure. The Groot Constantia vineyard is right on the doorstep and is an excellent half day visit (that's whether or not you want to taste the excellent wines). Kirstenbosch is also very close by and is a definite must visit. Very happy to recommend this accommodation to others.
