Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: With 20 years experience, in the Tourism industry, we are in a unique position to advise and help with any of your traveling and Safari requirements. Yvonne is a 'professional' Artist, working from her studio on the property. Helmo prepares and facilitates tailor made tours in Southern Africa. All guests are very welcome to view the studio gallery at any time. We are English, German, Dutch and Afrikaans speaking

Why the Owner Chose Cape Peninsula, Cape Town, South Africa:
Uitsig Cottage is situated in one of the most scenic and tranquil regions of Cape Town. If you enjoy nature, but still want to be close to the city, this is the place for you. Easy access to the wine lands and beach and ideal to use as your base, while viewing the attractions of The Cape.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The view has to be seen to be believed and it really is better than the photos can portray. Watch the sea birds, seals, whales, sailing yachts, wind surfers, submarines and battle ships go by, from the comfort of the Uitsig cottage lounge or veranda. Set in the Cape Peninsular, there are endless mountain and sea views, with new beaches around every corner.
