“The most peaceful house with stunning panoramic views of the ocean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 for a stay in November 2012

The most perfect location. Within reach of nice golf courses, restaurants and beaches. The house itself is very spacious and and has an aura of peace and love.

The local beach is only 50 metres away and and it's lovely for long walks.
The neighbourhood is friendly and within reach are markets which are vibrant and full of local produce.

As the main trunk route is nearby ,accessing nearby towns like George and Knysana is easy.

“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The home's unique architectural character is complemented by an unusually large public area including the kitchen, which has more utensils and cooking items than I have ever seen in a rental property.

The location is ideal for day trips in both directions along the Garden Route.

I have friends who live in Johannesburg and I recommended that they consider staying here if they spend several days in the area.

“ocean honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013 for a stay in November 2011

Had a great few days at Dolar's place right after getting married in Constantia. The house had all the luxuries we looked for, and the ocean view was mesmerizing. The sea and beautiful beach are very close and you have them almost to yourself. We would definitly go again. One tip: add wireless internet!

Thanks Paul. The wireless internet, like a TV is something that is bitter-sweet....we want people to really get away from it all, but staying connected to the world in a high priority too. Thanks for the review and we're looking forward to hosting you at Cape Footprints in the futiure. Kind regards...Dolar

“Absolutely beautiful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

There are two parts to the stay here:

1 is the house itself. It is a perfect holiday home where you want for nothing. It has been carefully decorated and has a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Plenty of space at the back of the house to enjoy the sun and a great balcony to sit out at the front.
This brings me to number 2. The view is fabulous, long long sandy beaches, crashing waves and the opportunity to whale watch from the house. The walks along the beach a wonderful and the breeze or stronger! blows away the cobwebs.
Search around for places to eat. There is a place called Emily Moon which is quite the loveliest place I have been to. Quite a drive but well worth it.
There is another restaurant in the near by town run by a husband and wife (she is the chef) - great great food and a family feel to it. A big favourite to eat was a steak house fairly close by but cannot for the life of me remember the name - ask around the locals will know it.
So - get over there it is well worth it.
