Großartiger Urlaub in Kapstadt

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei Urlaub im "Uitsig Cottage" gemacht und hatten eine wunderbare Zeit. Die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist so wunderschön, dass man eigentlich nicht weg möchte. Losgefahren sind wir trotzdem, es ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Entdecker-Touren in der gesamten Kap-Region. Das Cottage ist genau wie beschrieben, sehr sauber und mit allem ausgestattet, was man benötigen könnte. Yvonne und Helmo sind perfekte Gastgeber, die Tipps für alle Aktivitäten haben ... Und Yvonne's Bobotie-Dinner war unschlagbar! Danke für alles, Ihr zwei, wir kommen bald wieder. Nadine und Antje

Great cottage with superb views and location

  • 5 of 5

What more could you want than a great little cottage with everything you need, superb outside space and handy for exploring the peninsular, do not hesitate to book Uitsig Cottge. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Yvonne, who was away working but Helmo looked after us well for the 8 nights we stayed. He even organised dolphins to swim in the bay on our first morning, what a wonderful sight to wake to. Good, lively restaurant within walking distance (Dixies) and handy for the train if you don't want to worry about driving along the western side of the peninsular. We are already planning our return trip in 2018. Thank you both for your help before and during our holiday, could not have had better service.

A lovely place in such a beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

It’s great to wake up at Uitsig cottage and enjoy the view before going for a swim with the penguins or a hike on the cape of Good Hope. So many things to see and to do in this wonderful region! There are many good restaurants in the area, but I would recommend participating at least once in South Africa’s national sport: the braai! A barbecue with that sea view is an unforgettable moment. And did I mention that the cottage is comfortable and that the owners are very friendly and helpful?

Not to be missed. Fantastic all round

  • 5 of 5

The best self catering accommodation in Cape Town with stunning views. The cottage is located on a mountain side overlooking Simon's Town, with all the comforts of home, including a fabulous patio with built in barbeque. The owners Yvonne and Helmo are friendly and professional. They are also a great source for any information you require about the area and indeed of South Africa and beyond. We had the most wonderful time thanks to their hospitality and knowledge and will definitely stay there again on our next trip to South Africa.
