It offers amazing views - from the mountains all around to the beach in Hout Bay (even though it is not situated on the beach front you can hear the sea and it is a lovely walk down into Hout Bay). My family travelled from the UK and Tertia (Cape Town Villas) was our agent and ensured that our booking went smoothly and was quick to respond to any queries we had. She met us at the house and showed us around the property, which is truly well equipped and has everything you need. We were joined in our second week by friends from Jhb - the house is so spacious that we certainly didn't get under each others feet. We spent an amazing 2 and a bit weeks here and there were days where we were more than content to sit by the pool and enjoy what this home had to offer. I cannot recommend this house enough - beautiful house in a pretty garden and great service from the caretaker Garston, through to the cleaning service. I will definitely be looking to stay here on our next visit to the Cape. Thank you for making our family holiday that bit more special.

Well laid out kitchen/dining area. The pool area was perfect. Just a dune away from the beach and close to shops, restaurants, the famous Hout Bay Market and the Constantia Wine Lands. A short drive to the lovely beaches of Llandadno and Camps Bay. Cape Town was easy enough to drive to, but the satnav did help. My only gripe would be that it was difficult to contact the owner/agent to arrange a check out time with them for the day of our departure. However, I will definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Cape Town. As for myself and my family, we will hope to be staying here again on our next visit.
