I really had a great trip to Cape Town.  First, Peter was incredible!  I was able to see everything I wanted to see – besides what was on the agenda, I would show Peter a picture of a lighthouse or such and he had no problem taking me there.  He made some suggestions, such as going to the cheetah and raptor rescue center as opposed to wine tasting, as I don’t drink.  It was great!  Peter is charming and funny and I felt totally comfortable with him.  He was always on time and always made sure that I got to everywhere I wanted to go, even on the days he wasn’t with me.  He was never in a rush.   I loved where I stayed, at the Boulders Beach Lodge, who recommends Cape Point Route for day trips. 

Also, I want to say that Sally really worked hard when some snafus came up, like when I got sick and had to reschedule some tours.  She juggled things around so I was still able to do everything I wanted to do, except for the boat trip to Cape Point which was cancelled due to weather one day, and was unable to be rebooked because there were no others who scheduled.

I could not have been happier with how my trip turned out.  Kudos!

The tour was absolutely lekker, as you say here, and Yolanda was a gem at conveying us around, explaining everything we saw and putting it into perspective with regard to history, culture, language, flora and fauna. She also has a great sense of humour! Thanks for putting together this wonderful tour that we shall remember for the rest of our lives. Chris and Nat Jones; Charleston, South Carolina, USA

Cape Winelands Private Tour:
I just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our two wine tour days with Roelff as our driver.  Not only was he a good and cautious driver, he was delightful, patient and helpful in so many instances.  As we planned our own tours, he proved the perfect person to see us through our day.  We would highly recommend Cape Point Route as a result of this experience.  In addition, the vehicle was a nice comfortable size for the 4 of us. Thanks again,
Annette and Bob Ellis, Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA

The shark tour was excellent! I definitely think it’s the best company for the tours as they were very professional and the regulators with air made a big difference! Thank you for your advice and again, I really appreciate your assistance. I’ve had a wonderful time- from the efficient transfers to each activity and tour including the sea-kayaking to the beach horse-riding to the shark tour which was a highlight.

 The staff at this hotel assisted in creating the most amazing surprise for my wife of 3 years. They played along when I made the booking. The dinner was excellent with the chef cooking the meat to absolute finger linking perfection. They carried our bags to the room and served the dessert in the room. Excellent in room facilities. Wonderful bath to share and good off street parking. We did not need to use our car at all during the weekend with all the facilities close by. The management and staff are great. It was a wonderful relaxing and homey romantic venue. Well worth visiting.

Our family of five, including three adult daughters, really enjoyed staying here. We were there for three nights over the New Years holiday. The hotel is nicely designed, with rooms surrounding a lovely garden. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. The owner, Colin, is nearly always present and takes great pride in the hotel’s operation. The breakfasts were excellent. The location is excellent for exploring the Cape. Highly recommended.

Awesome house, very colonial, with a number of rooms and a games wing, all a young professional group could ask for a relaxing holiday by the sea. Budget for at least a week with several friends (and kids) to take in the splendour of the house and the area, and prepare to relax and unwind.

We don’t have words ………. we had the time of our lives !! A HUGE thank you for this weekend !! It was the most awesome stunning weekend we all had EVER !! We felt like kings and queens the whole weekend !! We didn’t feel like we were in South Africa, it felt like we were somewhere overseas !! We had a nice braai on Friday night and we felt like royalty having our dinner in the stunning dining area !! Once again, thank you thank you for a GREAT weekend – we will be back soon …….

 How lucky we were to find Sue and the Grosvenor Guest House in Simon’s Town!! We stayed at this guest house for a full week in Feb 2012, and only wish we could have stayed longer. Sue made us feel at home from day one, providing loads of information about the area and its attractions, and even helping us to make arrangements. She went way beyond what was expected. We stayed in two different suites and both were wonderfully furnished and kitchen equipped. Because of the close proximity of various stores we were easily able to do our own catering; we enjoyed numerous mornings and evenings eating and sipping wine on the deck overlooking the harbour and the ocean. There was no problem whatsoever in using this as our base for the many activities in all parts of the Cape. My wife, my niece, and I spent 6 weeks in Africa and due to Sue’s charm and the comfort of the Grosvenor, this week was one of the best. Thank you!!

What luck we had in finding Bella Ev, a magical place so close to Cape Town. A beautifully curated art collection, stunning rooms, evocative antiques and the Cape’s most gracious hostess. We’ll certainly be back.

I was a really nice time here in your really “bella” house.  We felt like at home and in some way like a king and queen. Thank you very much for everything I wish to see you and this place one more time!
Loredana and Davide from Italy (Calabria)

After five days in Camps Bay (wasting money , time and good mood) We found in Bella Ev the best place to stay in Cape Town. Your house is special – it has soul. With Love

Hmmmm. So sad to have to slide back out the door.  Would rather slip back into those Ottoman slippers and smile at the delicious sunshine inside this home of fair maidens and magical moments. Thank you dear beings.
