We’re not even home yet! Still in transit but stopped to write this review since we had a great time staying in Cape Town! The house was the perfect base to move around from. It’s as described …big, picturesque views of table mountain from the upper sleeping rooms. The street is very quiet and the neighborhood was very safe. The kids enjoyed the stay as there was wifi. The signal could be more reliable but it could just be the area. Nandi was brilliant as a resource and responded to texting for suggestions for food etc.The owner also was available by text when needed but we had no major issues at all. We’d recommend this place to a large family as the rooms were adequate. The 4th room is actually a poolroom so isn’t inside the house per se . There are tvs and good satellite tv but only one system so we couldn’t change the channel in individual rooms but we really didn’t watch that much tv. There’s a lot to do and see and the house really functions as a great base. Is is on a hill so walking into town is fine but taxing for elderly as it could take 20min to get to the good stuff. Taxis are easy to get though. For the money it’s quite excellent as a large group together in a hotel is way more costly. There isn’t a yard though…just the pool area so don’t expect to run around out back. The view from the bedroom with the ensuite is spectacular.
Great communication from Johan and Elmarie, and they happily extended our check out time and accommodated an early check in. The House was stunning, even more amazing than the photos. It was super modern with high vaulted ceilings in the lounge, and an awesome balcony, we spent many an evening out there overlooking the lights of Simonstown. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. There was 6 of us staying here and all the bedrooms had en-suites which was perfect and there is so much room for chilling out and entertaining. The neighborhood is very peaceful, and just set back from the main strip of Simonstown. We walked into town a few mornings which only took about 5/10 mins or so. Lots of steep steps but this added to the adventure or exploring the town. Central location, fabulous outside area, stunning views, modern and clean. We would all definitely stay here again.
Elmarie and Johan were extremely friendly and helpful. Elmarie answered all my questions about booking, location and Cape Town. Their ebook is a great idea and very informative for first time travelers. Anonymous.
Again may I thank you all at the Horak clan for a great week at Milnerton, your assistance gave us the confidence we were being well looked after. thanks a lot. John North

Nandi. Thank you very much. It has been such a pleasure dealing with your Company – everything went smoothly and hassle-free. Thank you for such excellent service Regards.
Left on Dec 7, 2016 for a stay in Nov 2016We have stayed at lake side home for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay there. Ir is much more better than the photos in the website. The view is awesome, the pool is good and the rooms are clean and comfortable. There is also a paddle boat which you can ride on the lake and enjoy the weather. The manager is so kind and helpful. I will definitely stay there If I want to go to Cape Town again.Tehran, Iran
We had a lovely stay at House Pax. The view is amazing and the house was clean, well maintained and equipped. Debbie received us at the agreed time and was very friendly and informative. The two double bedrooms have amazing views with great en-suites with baths. The twin bedrooms downstairs are practical and ideal for kids. The booking was effortless and everything went smoothly. The house was clean and well equipped. Well done, keep up what you are doing. Highly recommended!
As I said when we met recently, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Kommetjie. The cottage was just perfect and I am so grateful to you for your help in persuading me that it was the right one.
I’m now well and truly back in the frozen north, although the forecasters promise us that the thaw has started and that we will son have warmer weather. We’ll have to wait and see!
As you say…till next time.
Hi there Elmarie
Just another quick thank you for organising things so promptly – I must confess to having a soft spot for efficiency……..:-)
“Coming to Cape Town quite often it always was an exhausting rallye for us to find a suitable and nice place to stay, combining pleasure, leisure and business – and of course authentic Cape style combined with good views! Not less than all that.
Well, dealing with owners personally often brought me into the situation to interpret that kind of very subjective answers like “”great view”” while the view is just not nice or “”very spacious”” talking about a room-in-a-box or what also belonged to my favourites “”true Cape style furnitures”” meaning an assortment of all the old furniture that weren’t anymore good enough for the owners flat but not yet bad enough to throw them out.
Want to have it all and without being exhausted on your arrival?
Then switch to Elmarie and Cape Holidays Accommodation!
Elmarie is one of the nicest Capetonians we got to know and she breaks her back to find the perfect place for you. She listens to you and she also accepts unconditionally and without being annoyed if you don’t agree with her on an accommodation. You just mention your objectives and on she goes with looking further just to make you feel happy.
What we like about Elmarie is her very personal approach to the needs you have. She never gives you the feeling that you want too much or that your wishes are slightly exaggerated (although ours were sometimes 🙂 The more you let her know about your wishes and requirements the more she gets ambitious to find the perfect place.
And last but not least dealing with Elmarie is prompt, punctual, communicative, absolutely reliable and far beyond all doubts.
Ever since we met Elmarie, the pre-rallyes to our stays in Cape Town are history. We just approach her with our dates and wishes and here she goes and comes back with good proposals. We owe some of the most beautiful and perfect moments of our last Capetonian stays to Elmarie !!!
Thank you so much, you’re just great !!!” christina.strohm at web.de Germany 28 Jan 2013

“Elmarie goes out of her way to get you what you asked for. Very impressesed!! Thanks for helping me – you saved the day.” Rae Loader Jan 2013.
Dear Johan, 14 Jan I must just tell you how impressed I have been with your professionalism. Your response time has been excellent, you have responded to my request in a really appropriate way – taking into account all aspects of what I have asked for. So I just wanted to say thanks for the amazing help you have been so far.
Unfortunately this is like trying on many different dresses to see which one fits – so please excuse me if I’m being a pain with all my requests. Kind regards, Nicole
Thanks Elmarie You’re a star! Anne-marie Waterman 7 Trafalgar Simonstown 23 August 2012
Elmarie, thank you very much for supporting our event! I appreciate your work to watch out for the right place very very much and highly, maybe more than you might expect or know…. As I’m now booking Capetonian places for years I know the work that is behind searching and checking and booking at the right moment and so on… If for this time it would have been done “so easily” through you, that is the first gift for our anniversary J Warmest greetings and a big hug from the Queen Christina Strohm Schwarzwaldstraße 76593 Gernsbach
We would definitely go back there if the opportunity arises again.
Thank you for recommending. We relied totally on what u chose for us. Your service and always quick responses,is excellent.
We will definitely recommend u to anyone in Zambia looking for accommodation. Diane Rodger Zambia
Your graciousness and diligence are greatly appreciated. If you have the time, we’d like to meet you in person sometime during our stay. Grace will continue to visit South Africa 4 times a year for the foreseeable future, so it is very likely that we will again vacation there and, of course, we would like to work with you again. Graig and Grace Barnes.
It’s such a pleasure Jiri and so kind and thoughtful of you to take the time and trouble to give us feedback. Elmarie is an absolute gem and we are so lucky to have found her as she seems to go the extra mile for everyone. Rose Lemkus
This is to confirm that Elmarie Horak of Cape Holidays has looked after our home at the above address, since we moved there in November 2010. She has done an excellent job, both sorting out all the inevitable problems of re-locating, and then dealing with the day to day problems of running a house in a foreign country. I highly recommend her services. If you wish any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me. The Countess of Harrington
Very happy with the service we received. Elmarie is professional, but friendly and very helpful. My phone calls were always returned promptly. 4 Aloe Road in Kommetjie was a lovely comfortable house, clean and tidy, with everything we required in the kitchen with regards to utensils etc. We had a great stay and will return. firstname.lastname@example.org Ann Turvey 21 August 2012
