CAPE TOWN'S THREE MAJOR SEASON
- High Peak: 15 Dec to 15 Jan - It can from 20 Dec to 10 Jan
- Summer before and after peak. Summer after peak tends to be more popular than before peak with February the most popular of the summer months with the great weather and events held in Cape Town.
As a very general guideline you can use the number of bedrooms, the suburb and the season to get an idea. The best is to ask for a free rate consultation and we will assist you with our self catering calculator.
Remember: The further you move away from Camps Bay and Clifton lower your rate will be. Let's say you have a few homes exactly the same; in Camps Bay or Clifton, City Center, Southern Suburbs and Southern Peninsula.
SELF CATERING FACTORS & RATE EXAMPLES
- Suburb Factor: Let say Camps Bay Clifton is 100%. Then the other holiday areas would be 50 to 70%. (NOTE: I am generalising). Let's look at an example: If you can get R10 000 per night in Camps Bay Clifton you will probably look at R5000 for the same house in further away from the Atlantic Seaboard.
- Seasonality: If high peak rate is 100% then winter would be 33% and summer about 50%. In rand and cents this would mean a Camps Bay home would get, say, R10000 during high peak, R5000 during summer and R3333 during winter.
- Bedrooms: Camps Bay Clinton can be R4000 to R8000 per night per room during high season. This means about R2000 to R4000 per night during winter. Other areas would be finding it difficult to get R4000 per room during high peak - or rather impossible - except for really fancy homes. Other areas with nice homes could expect more than R2000 per room. (I am not talking about budget homes).
