WOW!!! What a Jewel!!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay in Uitsig Cottage

The cottage is ideal for 2 people, clean, comfortable, peaceful with everything you need, and that view !!
The hospitality of Yvonne and Helmo was enjoyed and much appreciated.

There is so much to see and do in and around the Cape, our 2 weeks hardly seemed long enough.
Ideally located for Cape Town and surrounds, always nice to return to Glencairn and Uitsig after the days adventures.

If you are looking for a lazy day on the beach, there are spectacular white sand beaches, virtually around every corner.

We have nothing but good things at say about our stay at Uitsig Cottage, absolutely loved Cape Town and South Africa.

Fantastic holiday.

Nothing short of amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed with Yvonne and Helmut..and of course Jessy - in their lovely cottage for three weeks!

It is the perfect getaway and location is so beautiful. The views are breathtaking. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean is also a big YES!

The cottage it self is a gem. It has all you need. Perfect size bathroom, nice beds and a kitchen/livingroom that has a stunning view.
You can easily prepare your own meals, but with all the good restaurants near by (and CT only 40 mins away) we usually only had breakfast at the cottage.

You find good restaurants in Simonstown, Kalk Bay (Olivias is a must) and Noorthoek (Food Barn..both deli and restaurant).

As for Yvonne and Helmut...you will never find more welcoming and gracious hosts. They do all they can to make you feel welcome, and if you need help they will do their best to help you.

I would recommend to hire a car...there are too much to see and experience in SA not to :)

...and we can not forget Jessy! She was icing on the cake for us!! :)

Short version:
Will we recommend this place: BIG YES
Are we coming back: BIG YES
Should you go: BIG YES

p.s
I you have any other questions Yvonne has my promition to give out my email adresse :)

Priceless views and great Hospitality

  • 5 of 5
They say a picture speaks a thousand words and Uitsig Cottage lives up to its picture and much more. A beautiful outlook with a constantly changing landscape is food for the soul and the exceptional views across False Bay from the comfort of the cottage certainly delivers. Metro Rail is within walking distance and we managed to spend time exploring Simons Town, Kalk Bay and central Cape Town without car hire. Helmo and Yvonne go the extra mile for their guests and we highly recommend a stay in this cottage.

Great Location, spectacular views

  • 5 of 5
The view across the bay to Simonstown is truly magnificent. I don't know if I preferred it at night or during the day. It was hard to leave the cottage with all its amenities and great view, fortunately Uitsig is located within walking distance from the beach and the train that goes to the City in one direction and Simonstown in the other. Yvonne, Helmo and Jessie are great hosts - they made an amazing visit even greater.
