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.

The property is extremely well equipped with everything you could possible require. In the event only 5 people were able to stay in the house, so there was ample room. We might have struggled though if all beds had been occupied as access to the roof terrace meant going through one of the double bedrooms. The pool was a great attraction, but unseasonably high winds left it with rather a lot of debris to clear out each morning from the nearby trees. Besides the roof terrace, there is a lovely garden and well sheltered courtyard in which to unwind and enjoy a glass of wine - or two. Close to shops and supermarkets, in-house catering was a breeze. Plenty of places nearby to eat out too. Access in and out of Cape Town is easy, and only 35 mins to/from the Airport. For a family holiday base, this is the ideal spot.

Very quiet with good views to False Bay at Strand and Gordon's Bay. Adjacent to nature reserve and wonderful selection of birds visited the garden. Jeanie and Leon are on site and very helpful should any problems arise. Easy access to Stellenbosch and all the vineyards around. Try the restaurant at Clos Malverne wine estate, Devon Valley Road for their four course wine-pairing lunch, which included six full glasses of superb wine, all for less than £60 for two. You will need a taxi! We will use again for a future visit to Cape Town area. Thank you Martin.
