Make A Holiday Rental House in Kommetjie, South Africa, Your Home Away From Home

It may seem amazing but the city of Cape Town in South Africa is much more extensive than many imagine. For example, the wonderful Cape Town suburb of Kommetjie is actually a 45 minute journey away from the heart of the city! A Kommetjie holiday therefore means that you have the best of both worlds – you can have excellent, affordable accommodation on the outskirts of the town so that you are not amongst the masses but you are close enough to enjoy all of the activities and attractions that the centre of Cape Town has on offer.

Other activities available in and around the area include golf, tennis, cycling, walking, whale watching and horse riding.

                                                Fantastic in every way!

                                                5 of 5
                                                From the minute we arrived, this house felt like home - a far more luxurious home than our own mind you! 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

                                                great family trip

                                                First I have to thank Corne and Louise for the uncomplicated management of reorganizing a double booking. 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
