"Fantastische Kommunikation vorab, alles hat bestens geklappt. So fühlt man sich willkommen! Das Haus ist unglaublich charmant in toller Lage, gute Voll-Ausstattung. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und werden das Haus wärmstens weiterempfehlen!""


"We had a wonderful stay in Myrthe's cottage and she was a great host. Every time we had a question, she wrote us with an immediate answer. The cottage is just as described and was perfect for a vacation. A quick walk to a breathtaking beach and great restaurants as well. I can't wait to come back!""


"Great location in beautiful Hout Bay. Myrthe greeted us timely with the fire going. The cottage was fully outfitted, clean and had plenty of linens - very comfortable. The housekeeper cleaned up after us every few days, and it had great accommodations for our 5 young children (crib, highchair, toys, safety fence around the pool, etc.). There are high fences with great privacy and secure yard and alarm system. A great find - we enjoyed our stay. Thank you Myrthe...""


"The Hout Bay Beach Cottage is SUCH an awesome spot! I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling in the area. There were 6 of us in the house and it still felt very spacious. Myrthe thought of everything to make you feel at home - coffee, tea, milk, sugar, firewood, candles, a booklet with house instructions and recommendations for the area. I also found her very accommodating with our check-in time. We ended up running an hour behind schedule on our way to the beach house, so we just sent a text to let her know and she easily accepted the change in plans. It was a wonderful stay - I wish we could have stayed longer!""


"Prachtige plek in een prachtige omgeving! Goed verzorgd, van alle gemakken voorzien, schoon en met een warme ontvangst: top!!""


"Such a lovely and efficient home. Well maintained, on a quiet street near the beach and other amenities. Very family friendly. It was perfect. The house met all our expectations. We were worried it would be too small for four adults and three children, but it was just fine. We loved the yard and the pool, and spent each night grilling outside and eating in the fresh air. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen had everything we needed. Gabriel is a terrific daily housekeeper and kept the house fresh and clean each day.""


"Thank you for such an amazing week in a stunning location and gorgeous cottage. All the finishing touches were fantastic and made our holiday so very special. You have thought of everything and created a perfect home away from home. Gabriel is just wonderful and Elliot loved playing with him, too! Loved log fires with fine SA wine with great views of mountain. Everything was PERFECT!!! Thank YOU! Xxx"


"The cottage was stunningly beautiful decorated and everything that you needed / required was supplied. The fire place in the living area was definitely a wonderful delight especially in the winter time! Special touches like the individual slippers and chocolates on the pillows and champagne in the fridge made us feel ultra special! Will recommend this cottage to everyone, loved our stay! We would not change a single thing, our friends and us remarked that we would love to have a cottage like this in our hometown! We loved everything about it."
