About Michelle Ubsdell, Property Manager

The owner of the house is Benita Lenard, but the property is managed by Michelle Ubsdell. Benita bought the house in 2013, as it is an ideal family home for their annual visits. The Lenard family have lived abroad for many years and are currently living in Abu Dhabi. They enjoy travelling, but their hearts remain in Cape Town and they enjoy the convenience of their house in Fish Hoek.

Why Michelle Ubsdell, Property Manager chose Fish Hoek

This home is well planned and comfortable. It is conveniently positioned in Sunny Cove a quaint nook on the outskirts of Fish Hoek. Sunny Cove train station is a stones throw away from the house, a few hundred meters down the road & then down a flight of stairs, cross the Main road and you at the train station and the beach. Fish Hoek is a friendly town situated on the Cape Peninsula, it hosts shops, restaurants and pubs. There are many water sport opportunities, two golf courses 10 minutes from the house, and the surrounding mountains offer many other out door activities, that may be enjoyed by residents and tourists alike. Fish Hoek has a safe family friendly beach, but remember the South African sun is harsh so suncream and hats are advisable to protect you & your family.

What makes this Apartment unique

First & foremost the best features of Cape-x-ta-sea are the views. The panoramic views are unobstructed and you are able to see right across False Bay. The morning sunrises are absolutely beautiful and in the evenings the glittering lights of the neighbouring towns is magical. The surrounding mountains at the rear of the house offer a unique opportunity to guest, they are able to use the hiking paths and enjoy the wonderful 'great outdoors' this beautiful part of the Cape has to offer, on foot or with mountain bikes.

                                                                  Magical holiday

                                                                  Bridget O.

                                                                  We stayed in the apartment of Cape Extacy during the Christmas holidays. Our family of 4 had loads of space in the very comfortable accommodation. The views from every window were stunning, in particular the bathroom with is the most senic I've ever seen!!

                                                                  The decor was contemporary and the apartment was very well equipped. The property is very well located in Fish Hoek and it was an easy walk to the beach and town. Overall it was a fantastic location to be based for a Cape Town holiday as we toured around from there. I would highly recommend this property. Also it was immaculate and well managed by the very helpful team. Thanks to them we had a very smooth and enjoyable holiday. Can't wait to return.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  It's true every room has a magical view of our active, beautiful bay, there's always some sea creatures, boats/yachts, kayaks or sun rises to watch & enjoy.

                                                                  I'm thrilled to hear your family had a comfortable stay. We look forward to your next visit.

                                                                  -toilet paper

                                                                  -dish soap

                                                                  -adequate sized pot for cooking for more than two people

                                                                  -garbage bags for the trash bin

                                                                  -fully functional WiFi

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  The apartment is self-catering, but thank you for bringing these basic requirements to our attention as it will certainly benefit future guests. It is unfortunate the House Management where unaware of your frustrations, and therefore where not given the opportunity to assist you & improve your stay.

                                                                  Great stay in real comfort!

                                                                  Samantha D.

                                                                  Gorgeous setting with incredible sea views. Large, spacious rooms. The beds were very comfortable. Not appropriate for guests that don't like stairs. We would stay there again for sure!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  a great escape from reality on your doorstep.

We couldn't have asked for a better location to celebrate one of our dearest and closets friends hen party's. The entertainment area is spacious, comfortable with Panoramic views of the bay. The furnishing were new yet relaxed and made us feel at home. The indoor / outdoor pool was the cherry on the top.

                                                                  The bedrooms were large enough to accommodate all the girls plus there very large over night bags. One of the best moments was going to sleep with sound of the ocean and waking up to fresh smells of the sea air. We really felt like it was a holiday get away.

                                                                  We will definitely recommend your home away from home and we will definitely be back.

                                                                  Thank you
