STUNNING LAKESIDE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We took this cottage for a month and loved every minute. It fits its description entirely and can't disappoint - comfortable, spacious and regularly serviced. The waterside location is idyllic, within a residential development - quiet, peaceful and safe yet within easy reach of all the places of interest. You need a car for which there is private, secure parking. The hosts are close by, easy-going, friendly and attentive. Local shops, restaurants, internet cafes and laundry are plentiful and very good indeed. Just down the road is a superb Information Office with incredibly helpful staff. And glorious beaches are just minutes away. Strongly recommended to anyone seeking a relaxed, private space to be away from the tourists.

LOVELY STAY, PEACEFUL AND RELAXING

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely stay at Kingfisher cottage, the setting was just lovely and very tranquil for that get away from it all feeling.

Though you do need a car to get out and about it is worth the stay, the accommodation was clean and tidy and spacious for enough for 2.

We felt safe and secure during the whole of our stay.

Thank you to Ruby and her family for making us feel so welcome.

VERY GOOD STAY, TRANQUIL, SECURE AND BLISSFUL

  • 4 of 5
What a lovely peaceful place to stay, very welcoming and warm owners too. We had a very good weeks stay. Very good place from which to explore the surrounding areas of the Cape with lots to do out and about.

Ruby made us feel very welcome and if needed she was on hand just next door. The use of the pool was wonderful and the water life excellent.

Car recommended though to get about.

12 DAYS OF BLISS AND BEAUTIFUL BIRD LIFE!

  • 4 of 5
Dear Ruby. Thank you for the 12 days that we were able to use your accommodation. We appreciated the privacy and comfort. The view of the canal and the bird life was an added, and much appreciated, bonus. Thank you once again and we hope to make use of your hospitality again soon.
Regards, Jan and Anne Basson

COMPLETE SATISFACTION!

  • 5 of 5
We spent our first week in South Africa at the Kingfisher and couldn’t have been happier. Ruby was a pleasure to work with and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was well beyond our expectations… spacious, modern, clean and secure. The grounds are immaculate and we had maid service throughout our stay.

Having never been to Cape Town before, we felt especially lucky to have picked such a perfect location as Marina da Gama. Although Cape Town was an easy 20 minute drive, we were right around the corner from the charm of Muizenberg and the other beach cites and ten minutes away from the elegant wineries and restaurants of Constantia. Even the Cape drive was short and easy.

We would recommend the Kingfisher to anyone who enjoys getting out but appreciates getting home to the privacy and security of your own apartment.
Thank you Ruby and Dick

A VERY ENJOYABLE HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent one month at Kingfisher Cottage mid December to mid January and loved every minute. The accommodation was excellent, spacious and comfortable, and the view from the light, airy living area overlooking the water was superb. It was fascinating just to sit and watch the ducks and wildlife on the water.

We would not hesitate to recommend Kingfisher Cottage as it is so peaceful, but within easy reach of many other places, and we hope to return next year.
