Very professionally run, great attention to detail, Dirk and Patrick and their team really make sure that you are looked after. We used the mobile phone that the Cube loans to call taxis and it was very useful and a good idea. The local taxi company "Home Heroes" were also worthy of a mention as they were quick, friendly and... More

From our very first email enquiry to our final farewell, Dirk went out of his way to provide detailed information and advice to make our vacation more enjoyable. He... More

However Hout Bay is a beautiful and peaceful location very close to the famous and stunning... More
