Mothers Day: 11 May 2014
Mother’s Day is that special day each year when children honour their mother’s and society recognizes motherhood and the influence of mothers. Most mom’s feel special and appreciated particularly if the acknowledgement involves love, appreciation, time or effort taken with thought and care. Say “Thank You” to your mother this Mother’s Day and tell her you love her.
Here are some Cape Point Route suggestions for Mother’s Day 2014. If you are still floundering for ideas please contact Cape Point Route on our NEW telephone number at Noordhoek Farm Village on 021 789 0093 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
TAKE YOUR MOTHER TO TEA:
Whether it’s High Tea or tea at Home with mom, most mother’s will enjoy the time spent over that cuppa tea and any treats. We have recommended the Best Spots for a Cup of Tea on the Cape Point Route so why not check out that list for ideas. Read More…
This Mother’s Day we suggest a stylish yet relaxed tea at one of the following establishments.

MOTHER’S DAY SPA TREATMENT:
Every woman loves a spa treatment and your mother is no exception. Manicures, Pedicures, Massages or Facials are always winners as gifts or as unique relaxing time with Mom.

MOTHER’S DAY SHOPPING AND GIFTS:
The majority of women really enjoy a bit of shopping. Why not take the time to enjoy a shopping session with your mom this mother’s day – searching for clothes, decor, collectables or any of your mom’s favourite hobbies or passions. Hot spots for shopping on the Cape Point Route include Mainstream Mall in Hout Bay, Noordhoek Farm Village in Noordhoek, Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay and the Casbah Design Boutique at Casa Labia in Muizenberg. We also love Kalk Bay and Simon’s Town for meandering and browsing and soaking up the atmosphere of the coastal villages. Our pick of the shopping spots with Mom is the First (or last) shop in Africa….

You’ll find treasures for the collector and the traveller; Traditional artefacts and unique craft which has been sourced from the rural areas in Africa by owners Steven and Julietter De Combes.
