“Very reluctant to share this gem...!”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 9 weeks (from January 3rd until March 8th, 2013) and I can only say: this was much more than just a ‘vacation home’, it truly felt like a home away from home!
Let me say up front that we’re very demanding customers in that we want to stay in a nice home at an affordable price.
In the past 16 odd years we’ve rented vacation homes all over the world but this house beats everything, not in the least thanks to owner David Baldwin for whom literally nothing was too much trouble! Contact with him, even though he resides in the UAE, was flawless via email. But locally, Alistair is at hand to represent the owner, hand over the keys, etc.

The house, situated in a beautiful security area, is utterly charming and the pictures don’t do it justice. It is very tastefully furnished and the beds are extremely comfy. The kitchen is the best outfitted one I’ve ever encountered in a rental home (down to an awesome garlic press!) and with high end appliances. Everything is there to enjoy home cooking but if you don’t want to, there are excellent and very cheap restaurants all around (in driving distance).

The small but very private garden is beautiful with lots of exotic flowering plants, shrubs, roses, even a fig tree, and the shaded (much needed during the summer months!) pergola overlooking the swimming pool has grape vines winding around it. Wonderful to have meals outside or spend hours reading on those comfy loungers.

The location was tops not only for us snowbirds escaping our European winter, but most certainly also for first-time or repeat tourists wanting to discover the Western Cape with all its highlights such as the center of Cape Town and Table Mountain, Stellenbosch, Fransschoek, the winelands, Hermanus,…

And last but not least: renting for such a long period the price has to be “nice” as well. Let me just say that the value-for-money ratio is excellent and we hope it is going to stay this way for a long time to come…

I’ve never before written such a long and raving review about a rental home and, except for a couple of mails, never even met the owner, but both my husband and I want to send him a heartful THANK YOU, David! We’re already looking forward to our confirmed South African summer bookings of next year and the year after!

“Fantastic location, beautifully decorated, excellent value for money”
Reviewed 6 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We rented the villa for two weeks over Christmas/New Year. Everything was exactly as advertised. Our kids spent hours and hours in the lovely pool, and the garden area was great for sunbathing. The villa is really well equipped, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The air conditioning is very efficient and all the appliances seemed brand new. Our son particularly appreciated the excellent wifi connection and cable TV! The villa is really well situated, with direct access onto the N2 to Cape Town. It offers the best of both worlds with the sea in one direction and mountains in the other. Shopping couldn't be easier with the vast Somerset Mall just along the N2. This is definitely one of the best holiday rentals we have stayed in. Hope to return one day!
