About Trish Allen
We are now entering our 6th season at our beautiful home in Noordhoek and enjoyed having people from all around the world - as far as Australia and America and all over Europe and of course around the UK and a lot of local South Africans too. As we swing into our 2017/18 season, we hope our new guests, and our returning guests have a really enjoyable stay in our little piece of paradise. The South African pace of life, the food, the climate and value for money. Not forgetting of course the spectacular scenery! As I write this in October - the sun is shining and its 27 degrees and despite a severe water shortage in Cape Town which we must all respect - I am pleased to say that our swimming pool won't have to shut due to how we receive our water supply. Happy holidays!
Trish Allen purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Trish Allen chose Noordhoek
See for yourself!......and you will understand why.
What makes this Villa unique
The property is light and open plan with all views heading out to the lake and beyond, towards the mountains. The villa is situated on a bird sanctuary, so many species to view and enjoy. It is modern and clean, tiled throughout. It feels fresh and very relaxing. Unlike other properties, it has the lake view and private jetty. It was built in the last 12 years with such thought to making the most of the location. The lay out of the house is exceptional with the communal rooms in the centre of the house and bedrooms on either side, making space and privacy for those who wish to 'get away' from the others on occasions! There are fans in the bedrooms and air conditioning in the main lounge and master bedroom. High speed fibre wifi connection has been added this year to add to your convenience and ensuring your not too far away from the rest of the world if you have to!

A well appointed house with great amenities and fabulous lakeside views. Spacious, light and airy, with well kept gardens and a pool. The property is in a great location and is accessible to Cape Town and the surrounding area of the Cape Peninsula. We especially enjoyed visiting the nearby restaurants in Noordhoek and Simon's Town.
The booking process was really easy, Trish was great to deal with and it was reassuring to have her sister Joan nearby who was able to give us helpful advice when we needed it.
The villa helped to make this a really special family holiday and we hope to come back soon.
Phantastic!! - Luxury and pieceful - very relaxing
Contact with very helpful Owner Trish before and during our trip and handover of the key on site was very easy and friendly.
The house itself is very luxurious, having everything you need for a comfortable stay. Descriptions and photos are 100 % what you get. The Location directly at the lake is phantastic. There is also a pool attached, but unfortunately we could not use as weather conditions were too poor. The house is located in a safe area, compound fenced and security around - so never felt unsafe.
The house is on the Cape Peninsula, in a very quite, countryside area, but with easy Access via famous Chapemans' Peak drive to Capetown ( approx. 35 km ). And it is also not far to wonderful beaches as well as Cape of Good Hope or the Winelands - so in case you want to avoid staying at busy Capetown, this is a perfect alternative to locate pieceful in the middle of this wonderful area.
Like to thank Trish and her Family and can recommend more than 100 % to stay there!!
Thank you Peers for writing a wonderful review. You English is excellent!
We look forward to welcoming you and your family in the future.
A beautiful villain a stunning location
Before arriving I must admit I was a little apprehensive, I could not have been more pleased. The villa was far better than we could have hoped. It was beautifully presented and the facilities excellent. An excellent location from which to explore Cape Town and the local areas. Owners Trish and Joan were extremely hospitable and communication was excellent. I keep.using the word excellent as there is no other description. I fully recommend this villa.
Hi there Michael, thank you for you lovely comments. We are so pleased that you had such a great time and we could help provide you with an 'excellent' villa!
look forward to welcoming you and your family again.
A fabulous villa offering respite and restoration from the stresses of modern life!
From the moment we walked in, we knew our holiday had started. Beautifully presented, clean and luxurious, this villa had the space for us to breathe and the views to restore us from our stressful city lives and a gruelling journey from the UK. Sitting on Lake Michelle in a well kept, gated complex, the villa accommodated 6 of us easily and the additional lounge provided that little extra space when it was needed for yoga or reading or simply staring at the views. The kitchen had all the amenities needed to make our self-catering stress-free and Joan and Ernie were extremely kind and helpful with any queries we had. We enjoyed kayaking on the lake, sun-tanning and swimming in the well kept pool but most of all, we absorbed the gorgeous views along with the sunshine. We really didn't want to leave; it was that perfect...If you are thinking of booking this fab place, we do recommend that during your stay you try the horse riding on Noordhoek beach through Sleepyhollow Stables and the delicious food at the Harbour Café at Kalk Bay. The café and shops at the Noordhoek Farm shop complex are also great. We will back - without a doubt! Paul and Lorraine and family :)
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are so pleased that we could cater for your family's needs.
Look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
A Great Location for a Family Holiday
From the pictures and description we hoped this would be a beautiful location for our family holiday in the Cape. It was absolutely wonderful. Noordhoek is well located to drive to Cape Town or to Simonstown and Cape Point either using the stunning Chapman's Peak toll road or the Pass. Both are relatively short but beautiful drives with seemingly minimal traffic; compared to Nairobi where we came from it was traffic paradise. The area has an excellent shopping centre with a large Checkers and Pick n Pay within 5 mins. The estate is safe, has a lovely lake and all the houses well positioned to avoid looking at each other. The view from the house is towards the mountains - the best side. Cape Wine Vineyards and the Food Barn nearby were lovely for food but you are well situated for the whole Cape peninsula. The house was very comfortable and the pool super for our children. Main bedroom and 2nd bedroom lovely for views, the 3rd bedroom has two single beds and is fine, albeit no view. The kitchen is well equipped. Finally, the canoe is a great extra that really makes you use the Lake, there are plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. Trish's sister lives round the corner and provided very good and discrete support if needed. A perfect base in the Cape Peninsula.
Many thanks for your review. We have cut a few hedges back to make an even more stunning view of Chapmans Peak and added fibre wifi - so internet faster.
We look forward to seeing you again later this year.
Super house in a super location!
This house is fantastic and one which I could actually live in very happily! The location is central with easy access to beaches, Cape Point, Chapman's Peak and the shopping mall is just around the corner. The excellent security is reassuring without compromising on privacy. The owners were welcoming and easy to deal with. The kitchen is well kitted out so we braaied on the Weber most evenings. The pool was clean and surprisingly warm. The view of the mountain is spectacular over the lake and the outdoor dining area well sheltered so it was lovely to sit out and relax in the evening even after dark. The house was clean, well-maintained and the wifi worked. We can't wait to go back!
We are so happy that you had a great time. Look forward to welcoming you back!
