Why Yvonne Ankerman chose Cape Peninsula

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

At home in Uitsig

We found ourselves completely at home at Uitzig. Waking up each day with an incredible view was stunning and Helmo and Yvonne were warm friendly and met every wish we wanted. The cottage is clean, well equipped and in a excellent location. We will be back for another amazing experience.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Hallo Yvonne und Helmo,

wir erlebten 2016 sieben Wochen Urlaub in Afrika, aber euer Haus war für 2 Wochen das schönste Domizil. Traumhafter Meerblick am Tag und in der Nacht, Sauberkeit und super Gastfreundschaft von euch beiden sowie Solo und Jessy(die Wachhunde und Streichelhunde).Das Grundstück ist wunderschön mit landestypischen Pflanzen angelegt. Die Reinigung und der Wechsel von Bettwäsche und Handtüchern war hervorragend. Danke für die Tipps zu den einsamen Stränden und unterhaltsamen Märkten und Weingütern so konnten wir das Land besser kennenlernen.

Helmo ist ein erfahrener Safariführer und bietet Touren an.

Das Ferienhaus ist für 2 Personen sehr gut ausgestattet und der Pool ist toll und so gut wie privat mit super Meerblick.

Supermarkt und Bahnhaltestelle nach Kaptstadt ist in unmittelbarer Nähe.

Wir hoffen dass wir uns wiedersehen es war eine tolle Zeit.

alles Liebe von Brigitte und Walter aus Österreich

Highly Recommended Cape Town Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This lovely comfortable cottage in Glencairn, False Bay has everything you need, plus one of the best views. The kitchen is well equipped, but there are also many excellent restaurants and cafes close by. 5 mins drive is a shopping mall that has all you need. There is so much to do in the immediate area, let alone greater Cape Town. The penguin colony is a must do, and of course Cape Point. Simon's Town has lots of history and the galleries in Kalk Bay are a 'must do'. Sitting on the deck for a sundowner soaking up the amazing view was a highlight. Yvonne and Helmo are wonderful hosts and extremely knowledgeable tourist guides. They recommended, then fully arranged a wonderful trip for us to Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls. Nothing was too much trouble.

We highly recommend this lovely property.

Großartiger Urlaub in Kapstadt

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei Urlaub im "Uitsig Cottage" gemacht und hatten eine wunderbare Zeit. Die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist so wunderschön, dass man eigentlich nicht weg möchte. Losgefahren sind wir trotzdem, es ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Entdecker-Touren in der gesamten Kap-Region. Das Cottage ist genau wie beschrieben, sehr sauber und mit allem ausgestattet, was man benötigen könnte. Yvonne und Helmo sind perfekte Gastgeber, die Tipps für alle Aktivitäten haben ... Und Yvonne's Bobotie-Dinner war unschlagbar! Danke für alles, Ihr zwei, wir kommen bald wieder. Nadine und Antje
