First Time in South Africa

  • 3 of 5

Our first impression on arrival was, we saw a big 'FOR RENT' sign on the front of the house. However, the swimming pool was fantastic and the location most convenient for touring around the Cape Town area. The house is advertised as sleeping and seating for 12 guests, luckily there were only four of us as there were actually only two sun loungers and three sofas.

Although our overall holiday was wonderful and the house and location are both good there were a number of details that would have made our stay even better. The listing states that there is;

i) a Housekeeper included - not true, the house was dirty especially all the floors, which we ended up washing ourselves and there was no bed-linen or towels change between the first and second weeks.

ii) internet included - again not true, this had to be purchesd from the Mall and we spent approximately £60 on WIFI

iii) the shower rooms were adequate but need cleaning and regrouting or updating

iv) the TV - very limited channels

v) Fitness room and equipment - not sure where this was???

vi) Wheelchair accessible - there are four very steep stone steps up to the back door which are completely unsuitable for a wheelchair, I am very glad I did not require one and it would be most difficult if you arrived expecting easy access.

As I said the overall holiday was great for four adults, but we paid a lot of money to stay in good quality accommodation which sadly fell slightly short in a number of areas.

I hope the owner can address these for future visitors.

Owner's Response: The house is for maximum 12 guests (6 adults and 6 children) Outside, in the back garden , the terrasse is only equipped with 2 sun loungers as the terrasse is not big enough to accept more sun loungers. What you call sofas ( transat) , I must precise for ouside , 4 more of them are stored in the garage where customers have access . i)Housekeeper included: The house cleaning is made before every check in by a cleaning company which has been working with me for 2 years. I am sometimes here when the cleaning ladies are working . I never had to complain about them. The floor is made of tiles with grey cement join. If you walk barefoot , true that your underfeet get colored. I never mentionned that there is a set of change for bed linen and towels . There is no housemaid. ii)Internet is ticked but it is mentionned that Wifi works with a rechargeable key that guests have to charge with bundles in Vodacom shops . iii)Shower rooms: They were cleaned... it is true that the white grout between the tiles is a bit damaged in some areas . I restore it as much as possible once a year . iv)TV channels are limited to basic contract . Guests can upgrade it by themselves if needed. v) fitness was ticked with mention sportive area 100 meters from the house . I ticked it off now vi)Wheelchair accessible : One guest in the past absolutely wanted to rent the house with his disabled daughter . I made a wooden ramp to climb the 4 steps with a wheeling chair . He was happy with that . Considering your comment I will simply tick it off .

Very nice villa with a spectacular view and pool

  • 5 of 5

We've spent 4 weeks in this very nice villa.

The owner Emmanual is a very friendly and helpful person answering questions promptly. We were 4 adults and one 3 month old baby (Emmanuel bought a baby bed for us). The pool is very long so you can take a real swim also in the dark as you can turn on lights in the pool. It is cleaned weekly and you can choose the water temperature (we like it warm around 28 degree). Very enjoyable!

The kitchen is well equipped with a nespresso machine and milk foam maker (nespresso store is in the Victoria wharf mall in Cape Town) and everything you need.

The main room has comfortable sofas and a big balcony facing to False Bay and Table Mountain- we've enjoyed having a sun downer and this outstanding view every single evening- breathtaking sunsets!!

The neighborhood is quiet and the people around friendly and helpful- there is an alarm system which we only used when we left the house. We felt safe.

The location is perfect for having lunch at the wine estates around in app 15 minutes distance and trips to Cape Town app 35 min to the water front.

In Somerset is the award winning Woolworth at waterstone mall and the big Somerset mall where you'll find anything you need.

We really enjoyed our stay and can strongly recommend to get in touch with Emmanuel in order to spent time in beautiful SA in his house.

Un bijou avec vue magnifique

  • 4 of 5

Cette maison est idealement localise entre vignobles (par exemple Eikendal ou Le Riche), golf (par exemple Erinvale ou Zalze), et bons restaurants, (par exemple Overture ou Makaron) . Il est bien entretenu, equipe et soigne, le voisinage et tres amicale et pret a vous aider. La vue vers la ville de Capetown et la Table Mountain est spectaculaire, surtout le soi au coucher du soleil. Bien sur nous recommenderons cette maison a nos amis.

  • 5 of 5

"J''ai eu l''occasion de séjourner dans la villa pendant la période de la coupe du Monde de Football, où j''ai pu apprécier la beauté de la région. C''est une très belle maison, spacieuse avec jardin et superbe piscine. La vue de la terrasse est tout simplement magnifique. côté équipements, le nécessaire y ait, il existe aussi un centre commercial à proximité. La maison se trouve dans un quartier résidentiel très calme à 35mn de route du centre ville de cape town et à 20mn de l''aéroport, elle est idéalement située pour visiter toute la région du Cape (entre centre ville et route des vins).

Enfin, la villa conviendrait pour des vacances en Famille ou entre amis."
