About Diana Williams

I was born and raised in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. I worked together with my husband Robert in the restaurant business where we run succesfull and trendy clubs and cafes. One of our 'babys' was the very first house club in Freiburg called Drifters Club and our last project was the very up-market cafe-bar-club 'Kagan' in the last three top floors of the highest building in town!

We live with our two sons (10 and 6 years old) in the 'Mother City' of South Africa since eight years and are selling very successfully the best ice cream in town known as 'the ice cream guys'.

Diana Williams purchased this house in 2010

Why Diana Williams chose Cape Town

We fell in love with Zwaanswyk (the hidden pearl of Cape Town) on first sight! Close to town but still in nature with lots of space and peace and all amenities you could wish for nearby!

What makes this house unique

The outstanding view of the False Bay, our little Holywood, with the sparkling night lights of the Southern Suburbs and the direct access to the Constantia Berg with its fabulous hiking- and mountain bike trails. And not to forget the high class restaurants and wine estates just around the corner!

Absolutely stunning!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this wonderful gem of a place just before christmas. A lovely warm welcome on arrival by Diana and her lovely family. The cottage is immaculate and has everything that you need and more and is in a beautiful tranquil location with everything accessible. My only criticism is that we couldn't stay for longer!!! We will definitely stay again on our next visit. Oh and the Ice-cream is to die for too!!

Gorgeous Cottage in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from three weeks in Almondberry Cottage, the Cottage was just as described - nice and clean, well situated and equipped, and nothing too much trouble from the owners. It is very close to shopping, golf, horse riding and all the other little treats Capetown offers. The owners were wonderful nothing was too much trouble. The Cottage is very safe and quiet I only wish we were still there now rather than back to the snow in England!!

Simply fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience! The Cottage is situated beautifully - just up the hills of Tokai. The house is super complete and all the used materials (beds, towels, kitchen etc.) are very comfortable. The swimming pool and denk are very clean - a relaxed place to spend the afternoon with a glass of chenin blanc. Same accounts for the garden - well maintained and a pleasure to have breakfast or a proper braai! The landlady and -lord are very pleasant and caring people. We would love to join them once again for a summer holiday!

Zweite Heimat!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Dezember unseren Weihnachtsurlaub in diesem unglaublich geschmackvoll eingerichtetem, sowie gepflegten Cottage verbracht. Neben einer großzügigen Raumaufteilung bietet dieses Ferienhaus einen hübsch angelegten Außenbereich mit tollem Pool. Gerade für Familien mit Kindern ein absolutes Paradies. Das Cottage ist am Berg gelegen, so dass man einen direkten Zugang zu Wanderwegen oder auch zu Mountainbike Trails hat. Das Cottage ist in einem sehr gepflegten Umfeld belegen und bietet einen top Ausgangspunkt nach Muizenberg, zu den Vineyards oder auch nach Hout Bay. Zur Waterfront sind es ca. 15 Autominuten. Hinzu kommt, dass die Familie Williams fantastische Gastgeber sind und man sich super gut aufgehoben fühlt. Für uns steht in jedem Fall fest, dass wir wieder kommen. Wir freuen uns schon jetzt auf unseren nächsten Urlaub in diesem schönen Cottage.

Traumhaus für Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Januar 2015 als fünfköpfige Familie für 2 Wochen im Almondbury Cottage. Nach einem herzlichen Empfang haben wir uns sehr schnell eingelebt, da das Haus einfach zum Wohlfühlen einlädt. Die Ausstattung ist hochwertig und lässt keine Wünsche offen.

Von grossem Vorteil ist die direkte Nachbarschaft zu den sehr netten Vermietern, die gerne Tipps zur Umgebung geben und z.B. unsere Tages-Safari organisiert haben. Und dann ist da ja noch die leckere Eiscreme... ;-)

Für uns war die Lage des Cottages ideal, da wir zum einen die Dinge des täglichen Bedarfs innnerhalb von 5min erreichen konnten und zum anderen alle Highlights des Western Cape bequem erreichbar sind.

Für uns war es ein Traumurlaub und wir kommen gerne wieder!

Beautiful, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at this beauiful cottage for a 5 night saty in January, we immediately greated by two friendly dogs, followed by the two friendly owners. This set the tone for our entire stay - friendly service, and cute (very well-behaved) dogs.

The cottage had all the amenities we needed, including a nice little pool and a large, well planned kitchen. We were able to eat our meals outdoors in the lovely garden. And dessert included our hosts' fanstatic home made ice cream!

The location is ideal for a combiantion of things. It is only a half hour drive from Cape Town, and also close to Hout Bay, the Cape of Good Hope and Boulders Beach (where the penguins are!) You also have access, directly from behind the house, to the trails of the Tokai plantation and Table Mountain National Park. In my five days there, I was able to climb three of the nearby mountains, all the trails simple reached on foot from right behind the property. Highly recommended. The view from Elephant Eye is spectacular.

All in all a fanstatic place, and we culd not have asked for nicer hosts.
