Glencairn's Uitsig cottage is a gem in so many ways. Michele and I were excited when we saw the photo's and description of Yvonne & Helmo's place , yet it exceeded our expectations in every aspect!!
Our trip was a "busman's week" (as we are also in tourism) and went down for both a break and business. The location is superb both for exploring the copious and diverse attractions Cape Town has to offer yet also for seeing clients on business and an added bonus was we were also able to fit in visits to so many friends this time.
We arrived to glorious sunshine and spent those days exploring the outdoor must-do's and when the inevitable winter rain poured down explored the indoor must-do's. We saw whales, dolphins, seals and African penguins, amongst the other avian treats for "twitchers."
Returning to Uitsig cottage daily was similar to going home to loved one's after a long absence and will remain a memorable highlight forever.
We cannot convey the wonderful experience of waking up to that spectacular view from the cottage or admiring it before retiring to bed.
The hosts are superb in all aspects, from taking the reservation, making recommendations and so many little unexpected treats! A highly professional team!
Definitely value for money!
Our only regret is we could not spend longer than our week there. Next time we'll definitely book for longer!
Thank you Helmo, Yvonne, Jessie and Solo.
Gavin & Michele Jarman.
