About Diana Williams

I was born and raised in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. I worked together with my husband Robert in the restaurant business where we run succesfull and trendy clubs and cafes. One of our 'babys' was the very first house club in Freiburg called Drifters Club and our last project was the very up-market cafe-bar-club 'Kagan' in the last three top floors of the highest building in town.

We live with our two sons (14 and 10 years old) in the 'Mother City' of South Africa since 12 years and are selling very successfully the best ice cream in town known as 'the ice cream guys'.

Diana Williams purchased this house in 2010

Why Diana Williams chose Steenberg Estate

We fell in love with Zwaanswyk (the hidden pearl of Cape Town) on first sight! Close to town but still in nature with lots of space and peace and all amenities you could wish for nearby!

What makes this house unique

The outstanding view of the False Bay, our little Holywood, with the sparkling night lights of the Southern Suburbs and the direct access to the Constantia Berg with its fabulous hiking- and mountain bike trails. And not to forget the high class restaurants and wine estates just around the corner!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted a base for our month exploring Cape Town - could not have found a more perfect location! The cottage is a thoroughly modern and very attractive residence with great amenities and appliances - the pool was a special treat for us. Diana and Rob could not have been better hosts - their home is above the cottage area - and they helped us find our way around town with great suggestions for activities. Highly recommended for a stay in Cape Town - easy to get into the town center but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. A great experience overall.

Absolutely stunning!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this wonderful gem of a place just before christmas. A lovely warm welcome on arrival by Diana and her lovely family. The cottage is immaculate and has everything that you need and more and is in a beautiful tranquil location with everything accessible. My only criticism is that we couldn't stay for longer!!! We will definitely stay again on our next visit. Oh and the Ice-cream is to die for too!!

Gorgeous Cottage in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from three weeks in Almondberry Cottage, the Cottage was just as described - nice and clean, well situated and equipped, and nothing too much trouble from the owners. It is very close to shopping, golf, horse riding and all the other little treats Capetown offers. The owners were wonderful nothing was too much trouble. The Cottage is very safe and quiet I only wish we were still there now rather than back to the snow in England!!

Schöner Urlaub in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Cottage wurde liebevoll renoviert und eingerichtet. Die Lage in den Bergen von Constantia ist ideal. Zu den Weingütern der Gegend mit vielen tollen Restaurants sind es jeweils nur wenige Fahrminuten. Nach Kapstadt sind es nur 20 Fahrminuten, viele schöne Strände sind in der gleichen Zeit erreichbar.

Die Vermieter wohnen im Haus nebenan und waren für unsere Fragen stets ansprechbar. Unsere 4-jährige Tochter liebte besonders das selbstgemachte Eis und den Hund Bo!

Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Wir haben die Zeit im Almondbury Cottage sehr genossen. Es war fantastisch. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet und sehr schoen eingerichtet. Der Garten plus Pool sind der absolute Hammer, die Gegend absolut sicher und super zentral. Diana und Rob waren sehr herzlich und hilfsbereit. Das von ihnen produzierte Eis ist ein Traum!

Absolute Empfehlung fuer einen wunderschönen Urlaub!

Super Ferienhaus in 1A Lage!

  • 5 of 5

ein wunderschöner Ort um auszuspannen,- sehr schön gestaltetes, großes Ferienhaus in einer ruhigen Wohngegend.

Wir haben abends vom großen Schlafzimmer unter dem Dach die Lichter der Stadt genoßen oder in die Sterne geschaut - außerdem ist wirklich alles vorhanden um einen entspannten Familienurlaub zu verbringen. Sehr, sehr nette Gastgeber- danke für die vielen guten Ideen

(Foodmärkte) und das leckere Eis - wir hatten schon davon gelesen, aber es war wirklich das Beste Eis was wir jemals gegessen haben.

Wir haben uns hier sehr wohlgefühlt, die Kinder hatten viel Spass und kommen gerne möglichst schnell wieder.
