Beautiful house with top notch service!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, well maintained and in a beautiful location. The house had every facility you might need including a new pool and a lovely area to have a braai. Very close to a scenic beach and well situated in between the different attractions in the Cape Town area. On top of that the house always felt safe and secure and the area around it was likewise. Apart from the fantastic accommodations, the customer service shown by the host was what really set our experience apart. Every day our host would give us recommendations on what restaurants and attractions to visit based on what we mentioned we would like to see. These recommendations as well as the host's experience with the area helped us make the most of our visit. Besides the customer service our host was always friendly, polite and helpful which was truly appreciated.

We would strongly recommend this house to anyone and we would like to thank Corne for being such a wonderful host.

great family trip

  • 5 of 5

First I have to thank Corne and Louise for the uncomplicated management of reorganizing a double booking.

Everything turned out well with staying in Kommetjie close to our family.

Corne and Bill are wonderful hosts.

They made us feel home.

We enjoyed our stay in this new and modern house with great views from the terrace. Of course it was very clean, towels including beach towels have been available and changed regularly.

The kitchen is well equipped, the fridge with its ice machine was my brothers favorite.

The beach is very close and invites for running or long walks.

Thank you again for the lovely home you gave us.

We really enjoyed it

Terrific getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our long weekend away with bicycles. It's ideally located near Cape Point and the climbs over Ou Kaapse Weg. The accommodation was immaculate and I've been recommending Greenways to anyone interested in Cape Town.

Nice place but ...

  • 3 of 5

Nice place, good location. Nice person.

But during our stay of 6 nights, 3 days we had no electricity in the kitchen (dishwasher and washing machine couldn't work) and the sleeping and bath room of the children haven't no heating and it was very cold and wet at night.
