Perfect Stay - Thank You!

We stayed for five days in Louise´s lovely apartment and we just loved it. Very uncomplicated and friendly welcome. Louise just tried to think about everything and she tries to make everything as easy as possible to her guest`s. The rooms are very clean and spacy. The kitchen is very good equipped. The design is a good mixture of elegance and comfort. We just enjoyed to have our meals on the terrace. The beach with a wonderful view at the table mountain is just in walking distance. We are quite sure that we will book Bliss cottage again if we return to Cape Town.

Precious Memories

Our stay at the cottage was one that our family will always cherish. We were made to feel at home instantly, even before our arrival. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we needed and more, having spent Christmas during our stay, my children were delighted to put up a Christmas tree that was supplied. The cottage is situated very close to the beach, and many mornings and afternoons, we would take a walk down to the beach. We were unfortunate in that my daughter accidently broke one of the windows but this was addressed so warmly, and replaced within minutes. We were truly blessed to find such beautiful accommodation and run my beautiful people. Definitely a place I would recommend to all and would love to visit again. And if you are a book lover, I would recommend looking at their collection of books to read while you stay. Thank you so much for having us!

Vielen Dank Louise ! Das waren wirklich zwei wunderschöne Wochen in CPT. Die Lage des Hauses ist, zumindest für uns Kiter, perfekt. 200 Meter zum Beach aber auch die anderen Strände und Kapstadt City sind mit dem auto oder auch dem Bus schnell zu erreichen. Der kleine "Garten" ist auch sehr gemütlich, wir haben hier häufig abends gesessen und unser Fleisch/Fische auf dem großen Braii zubereitet und auch wichtig ! Uns auch immer sicher gefühlt !!! . Den Wein Vorratsschrank haben wir komplett geplündert ... Da hatte Louise eine leckere auswahl bereitgestellt (man legt das Geld dann einfach in eine bereitgestellt Sammeldose). Kurz erwähnt werden muß allerdings noch das doodles, eine Surfer Kneipe/Restaurant direkt am Strand und auch nur 200 Meter vom Bliss Cottage entfernt, hier haben wir auch ein paar sehr nette abende verbracht...
Lieben Gruß aus Hamburg, Stefan

Best self-catering experience yet!

We rented Bliss Cottage for a short break-away for our little family and it was marvellous. Not only is the cottage clean and neat - the art and decor is exquisit. The rooms are snuggly and warm with a heater in all of them including the bathroom - nothing nicer than wrapping up in a warm soft towel after a nice bath. All the finer details were taken care of - the owner Louise is always willing to go the extra mile - she even arranged a high chair and bottle brush for my little one - which meant I didnt have to travel down to Cape town with everything but the kitchen sink. We had a lovely stay and would recommend Bliss Cottage to everyone - one of the best self catering experiences yet!

Bliss Cottage is a lovely cottage. Louise and Jean were the perfect owners- welcoming us to Bliss Cottage and helping us with any queries during our 2 week stay. The cottage is well equipped, modern and has a large living space. The location close to the beach was perfect, and the view across to Table Mountain every morning was fabulous.

EXCELLENT!!! By far the best self catering we have ever stayed in. We spent 2 weeks in Blouberg Bliss and found it to be exceptionally well maintained, clean and well appointed. Absolutely everything we could have needed during our stay and more we found in the cottage and the owners were extremely friendly and more than willing to accomodate any special requests we had. The cottage has a fantastic homely feeling and we really felt like it was home away from home. Every moment of our stay in the cottage was pleasurable and we couldn't have made a better choice in accomodation for our stay! Thanks - we will definitely be back!!
Owner's Response: Lauren, Zach and Jessica, you were wonderful guests and it was such a pleasure to have you stay with us at Bliss Cottage. We certainly hope to have you return again and again as I would personally love to see little Jessica growing up.
At Bliss Cottage it is definitely our aim to create a home from home environment for our guests where all they need to bring is themselves, their clothes and their food. We try to equip the cottage with the rest of the day to day necessities, such as salt, pepper, basic spices and herbs, tea and coffee, cleaning materials and washing powder.
Please be back - you would be so very welcome!

Perfection 300 m from the beach

  • Submitted: Sep 17, 2012
  • Stayed: Jan 2012
What a fantastic place! It's rare to find a place that looks exactly as you expect it to, and then some... Louise's artistic touches are evident from the moment you open the door: budding roses in a vase, gourmet coffee, Woolworths' Ayrshire milk and balsamic vinaigrette in the fridge, huge bottles of olive oil, herbs, spices on the kitchen shelf, electronic mosquito pad, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets, laundry washing powder, well-stocked wine rack with an honesty box. The list goes on: full Dstv with 2 flat screen TVs, beach towels, non-slip bathmat for our baby, as well as a camp cot set up for us, and a baby chair for the table. Percale linen in the bedrooms, huge comfy couch and armchairs in the lounge, lovely leafy patio with sun lounger. We entertained while we were there, and it was just like being at home. All this just a short 300m walk to the beach! We will certainly be back. Can't wait!

DELIGHTFUL

  • Submitted: Sep 17, 2012

My husband, two daughters and I spent six days at the Bliss Cottage in Cape Town. Louise has set up a beautiful vacation rental. She is an exceptional hostess creating truly a home-away-from-home.

The kitchen was very well-stocked. The best I've ever had the pleasure to use! Not one dull knife, some salt and a warped pan, rather an array of utensils, dishes and cookware, a variety of spices (cumin!), a well-working French press, cloth napkins(!) and several bottles of great South african wine to chose from for 35 rand.

The bed linens were wonderful, plentiful, soft and fragrant. The furniture cozy, clean and comfortable. The coffee table was stocked with magazines as well as useful local travel brochures and local maps.

Louise also responded quickly to some issues with the electrical and Internet that had to do with local supply problems, recruiting her husband and even her tech-savvy son to promptly resolve the problems.

She is rightfully proud and very knowledgeable about the area and southern africa in general giving helpful information on a wide range of subjects for hiking to pre-Apartheid history.

The location of the cottage is perfect; just a few hundred meters from the beach with a view of both Table Mountain and Robben Island. With our rental car we were able to travel easily to downtown, down the Cape and to the wine country. There are also local stores and restaurants within walking distance.

The best!
