We have just finished a month long stay at Uitsig Cottage and it could not have been more perfect for us.. First of all, Yvonne and Helmo are perfect hosts. Always there when or if you need them, but never intrusive. They have a wealth of knowledge about South Africa and are a pleasure spend time with. The cottage is, well, perfect. It is a comfortable size for a long stay and the outdoor space is more than generous. Did I say that it also has a perfect view and location? The harbor in Simons Town is very beautiful as well as active. As for location, we took the train into Cape Town which was convenient, but there are so many great restaurants, beaches, wineries and hikes close to the cottage that you would never have to leave the area. So, as I have said many times, it was perfect - so much so that we will definitely be back!
It is difficult to add to a full set of 5*s, but Uitsig Cottage truly IS outstanding! Yvonne and Helmo are perfect hosts and maintain the highest of standards in a breathtaking location. It is modern, spotlessly clean and everything you could possibly need is provided. Apart from an occasional foray for provisions, you could spend your entire time blissfully relaxing whilst overlooking the stupendous view.
I know Glencairn Heights well, I only wish I had discovered Uitsig Cottage years ago. It is ideally situated to explore the many attractions of the Table Mountain National Park, from Cape Town itself all the way down the Peninsula to Cape Point. Beautiful scenery, a unique ecosystem, great and well marked hikes, fascinating history, fantastic restaurants, outstanding wines, even a nature reserve in the vlei below the cottage and much, much more are all there to explore.
For those who do not know the area, in the cottage there is a comprehensive library of guides and suggestions for places to eat, visit and experience, and Yvonne & Helmo are a mine of information and helpful suggestions. If you need help or advice, they are always available to assist but if, like Garbo, you want to be alone, you will be!
As an alternative to rushing about seeing amazing sights, you can do what I did – chill! Yes, just a few hikes, a little light photography, an occasional delicious meal out, but predominantly three weeks of the ultimate in relaxation on the deck at Uitsig – it means ‘view’, and boy what a view!
We started our journey at Uitsig Cottage what a great Place to be. We just have to repeat what the other visitors wrote as a review. Stunning view day and night, lovely hosts and we love Jessie and Solo. It is a great place to stay outside of the busy Cape Town, but only 40 minutes away, you can see the train from the Deck and travel into Cape town. Visit Fish Hoek, Simonstown, Boulders beach and Cape point we still did not see everything. Started our journey to the rest of the country from there, also organised by these two Helmo and Yvonne. we had a great great month and saw a lot never to forget.
Thanks for your hospitality.

Le cottage Uitsig a été un des plus beaux endroits durant notre voyage dans la région de Cape Town. Le cottage est très fonctionnel, et très bien entretenu, mêlant moderne et confort. La vue est simplement magnifique. La situation de ce cottage permet d'accéder à Simonstown très rapidement et le train permettant d'aller à Cape Town and stoppant par Kalk Bay est littéralement à côté . Quant aux propriétaires, ils sont d'une extrême gentillesse. Nous recommandons vivement ce cottage
Carol and I simply loved Uitsig Cottage! It is extremely well-appointed, very comfortable, and has an absolutely breathtaking view of the bay and Simons Town. It proved to be the perfect base from which we were able to explore the environment. On most afternoons the sheltered deck enticed us just to relax on the loungers and drink in the stunning view. We were treated by the presence of Southern Right whales in the bay on most afternoons.
Yvonne and Helmo were wonderful hosts - very friendly and helpful, but not intrusive in any way.
We hope to be back at Uitsig Cottage for our 50th wedding anniversary in 2016.

This was our first trip to South Africa and our first stop. We decided to stay out of the main Cape Town area and could not have picked a better place. Cape Town was not too far away and we were so close to Simmons Town and not far from Cape Point.
The view here is stunning and we sat outside and watched whales in the bay! How much fun is that! We had everything we needed and a comfy bed. Also a nice bottle of wine greeted us when we arrived. Yvonne and Helmo were great, friendly and answered all our many questions. I would stay here agin if we ever go back.
Because we came in the spring which can have changable weather, one day the temperature dropped by about 20 to 30 degrees! The cottage has a portable heater that will warm up a room, but it got quite chilly in any room without the heater such as the living room. However, the bed was warm and cosy. If you come during a time when it can get cold, bring warm clothes.
All in all, a great stay with lovely hosts and a beautiful country. What a memorable vacation we had.
Uitsig Cottage, situated in a 'fynbos' garden, bordering 'Table Mountain National Park'. Central location to tour Cape Town or relax on your veranda, enjoying the spectacular view over False Bay.
Enjoy walks on the beach, relax at the pool and whale watching during whale season.
