Why Yvonne Ankerman chose Simon's Town

Uitsig Cottage is situated in one of the most scenic and tranquil regions of Cape Town. If you enjoy nature, but still want to be close to the city, this is the place for you. Easy access to the wine lands and beach and ideal to use as your base, while viewing the attractions of The Cape.

What makes this Cottage unique

The view has to be seen to be believed and it really is better than the photos can portray. Watch the sea birds, seals, whales, sailing yachts, wind surfers, submarines and battle ships go by, from the comfort of the Uitsig cottage lounge or veranda. Set in the Cape Peninsular, there are endless mountain and sea views, with new beaches around every corner.

It has an incredible view from the spacious outdoor deck and pool area. The cottage is extremely clean and well maintained. Yvonne and Helmo are just the best hosts - what more can I say! There is no other place in Cape Town that we would ever consider staying.

                                                                  Hallo Yvonne und Helmo,

                                                                  wir erlebten 2016 sieben Wochen Urlaub in Afrika, aber euer Haus war für 2 Wochen das schönste Domizil. Traumhafter Meerblick am Tag und in der Nacht, Sauberkeit und super Gastfreundschaft von euch beiden sowie Solo und Jessy(die Wachhunde und Streichelhunde).Das Grundstück ist wunderschön mit landestypischen Pflanzen angelegt. Die Reinigung und der Wechsel von Bettwäsche und Handtüchern war hervorragend. Danke für die Tipps zu den einsamen Stränden und unterhaltsamen Märkten und Weingütern so konnten wir das Land besser kennenlernen.

                                                                  Helmo ist ein erfahrener Safariführer und bietet Touren an.

                                                                  Das Ferienhaus ist für 2 Personen sehr gut ausgestattet und der Pool ist toll und so gut wie privat mit super Meerblick.

                                                                  Supermarkt und Bahnhaltestelle nach Kaptstadt ist in unmittelbarer Nähe.

                                                                  Wir hoffen dass wir uns wiedersehen es war eine tolle Zeit.

                                                                  alles Liebe von Brigitte und Walter aus Österreich
