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.
We loved staying at the cottage, which was the perfect oasis after each day of exploring the surrounding towns. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and were welcomed by Yvonne and Helmo's hospitality. This couple is so kind and caring. After a long trip from the states, they made our arrival easy in helping to set up our rental vehicle at the airport. I had a spider bite that was a bit of a concern and Yvonne set up a a Doctors appointment for me right away. These are just 2 examples of how much they go above and beyond what is expected.
We had such a relaxing time waking up and falling asleep to the waves. Their cute dogs also greeted us each morning which we loved since we are dog lover's ourselves. The owners are very polite though and really adjust to whatever you need and asked if we liked dogs or not. This place has the most amazing views in an ideal location to Simon's Town, Kalk Bay, and a 30 minute drive to Cape Town. This is a great place to stay where you can really unwind and relax. We highly recommend!
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.
