Guestbook comments from the owner

It was brilliant. Heather and Bruce are friendly, helpful and easy to talk to. It was our first accommodation in SA and it was a perfect start! We were travelling with a one-yearold and Heather and Bruce helped us with everything regarding the baby.

The flat is really tastefully furbished - with a luxurious bath and a very nice bedroom. It's conveniently situated in a nice and safe neighbourhood.

The view over the golf-course is very nice. Especially in the evenings with the mountains in the background and a glass of wine in the foreground.

I would definitely recommend this apartment. And if we will ever get the chance to go to SA again, we will definitely try to stay at Greenkeeper Lodge again.

A home from home - and then some!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, Heather & Bruce couldn't do any more to make one welcome. Then the apartment is just out of this world. Very well appointed and containing everything needed for a restful holiday. Great views of the Golf Course, aceess to the swimming pool and barbeque, fully equiped kitchen and a welcome bowl of fruit and bottle of wine.

Being a woman on my own I had been wary of staying alone in an apartment. There is no need, at all, to worry. The security is very good and there is an alarm system that can be used both when you are in and when you are out enjoying Cape Town. And, of course, Heather & Bruce are on hand downstairs.

I should have no hesitation in staying there again.

Warm welcome! Easy booking and complication free arrangements. Suitable for a relaxed stay in CT

  • 4 of 5

Reservations were uncomplicated and inquiries dealt with promptly. Steep flight of stairs, so not suitable for persons with mobility challenges. Lovely, spacious, light apartment. Beautiful view with the mountain and golf course as a back drop. However, light sleepers may be woken up by early golfers and lawn mowers. Easily accessible to major freeway and beaches. A pleasant retreat.

Tranquil setting in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Greenkeeper Lodge several times and always look forward to returning to this delightful, tranquil spot. The apartment forms the entire top floor of the owner's house, and they are delightful, welcoming and extremely helpful. Everything is kept wonderfully clean by. Sweetness, the maid, who comes in twice a week. Good shopping facilities and restaurants are close by, and one is well placed for visiting anything in the Cape. Security is good, with an alarm system and your car is parked behind an electric gate. The accommodation is very comfortable, with large airy double bedroom with plenty of hanging space, and a spacious adjoining bathroom with a huge tub and separate shower. The living room is integral with the kitchenette. Both are well-equipped and comfortable for two people. This area extends out onto a good-sized balcony for outside eating. The whole flat overlooks Westlake Golf Club with the backdrop of the glorious mountains. One can never tire of this exceptional view. There is the added bonus of a pool in the garden should you feel the need for a dip. This is shared with the owners. I cannot rate this apartment highly enough, hence the reason for our return visits.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Greenkeeper Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. The location couldn't be better: it's in a quiet residential street only a couple of minutes' drive from the N2, which gets you into the suburbs of Cape Town within 10-15 minutes. There's easy access to lovely seaside towns like Kalk Bay, and there are shops and restaurants within walking distance, including a decent pub and a lovely Italian. Your two balconies look out over the golf course and dramatic mountain scenery. But the real appeal of this accommodation, where we spent 11 wonderful days, is the comfort. Heather and Bruce make you so welcome, providing fruit, fresh flowers and a bottle of wine: they even did some shopping for basics as we were arriving late on a Saturday. You have total privacy and yet easy communication with your hosts by telephone provided in the apartment. It's a real home-from-home: the bathroom and bedroom are spacious and quite luxurious. The quality of the furnishings and fabrics is lovely, and the bed was the most comfortable one we've ever had in any holiday accommodation. There are all sorts of thoughtful touches, including toiletries and kitchen basics such as teabags, oils, even rubber gloves! We had a few nights in, sitting on the big balcony watching the sun go down, cooking, drinking the delightful local wines and star-spotting. There's a barbecue which Bruce kindly brought up to the balcony for our use, and the swimming pool is idyllic, with sun-loungers and a shady bower for those delicate complexions! All in all, we had a completely fabulous holiday, thanks in no small part to our great luck in booking Greenkeeper Lodge!

Lovely introduction to Cape Town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Greenkeeper Lodge for the first 5 nights of our first visit to South Africa. It was a lovely introduction to Cape Town. We could not have been more comfortable and Mr & Mrs Powers were extremely helpful and welcoming. The apartment is beautiful equipped and we were very appreciative of touches such as a bowl of fruit and basics such as tea, coffee etc. We found the location perfect for all the sightseeing we wanted to do. I would thoroughly recommend Greenkeeper Lodge.

Spotless apartment.

Impecable service.

Very friendly service.

Lovely view with country feeling and lots of visiting birds and squirrels.

Lots of very pleasant walks in the area and a great little Italian restaurant just down the road.

Two Malls within 5 minutes drive for the shopaholics and the sea and beaches also within 10 minutes drive.

A stones throw from the Constantia wine route and easy access to the main highways to explore the Peninsula and the interior.

All in all a great base to stay and operate from when visiting the Western Cape and i would most certainly recomend this property to my relations and friends.

The owners are a lovely couple and are most approachable when help or guidance is required.
