Great access to the beach and secure parking for one car.

Private entrance and private entertainment outdoor area.

I am always available to assist guests and to suggest places to see.

Great surfing and bodyboarding. Take long walks along the beach and spot the whales breaching.

About Corne Gibbens

We lived in Hamburg for seven years and when my husband retired from corporate life, we moved to Cape Town. Initially living in the suburbs but later we decided to move to the best move of our lives. Spectacular vistas, fresh air and beautiful sandy beaches where we take our daily exercise

Corne Gibbens purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Corne Gibbens chose Cape Town

The Cottage is luxurious, spacious and well appointed. Recently renovated, it now offers two bedrooms each with a full bathroom. A lounge area for relaxing sundowners.

What makes this cottage unique

Spectacular vistas of evening sunsets. Two min stroll down a sandy path to the beach. 3 quaint restaurants within walking distance and Cape Town City is only 25 min drive from the Cottage

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

Relaxing getaway

The Cottage was a wonderful choice; spacious, very neat and a wonderful deck for Alfresco dining. The host were extremely helpful in suggesting sightseeing venues. I definitely recommend the cottage for a relaxing, luxury holiday spot.

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.

Getting around

Guests need to hire a car. Otherwise a Taxi service is readily available but it does become a costly affair. There are wonderful cycle routes from here.
