Horizon Cottages
Reviewed December 20, 2011

We stayed at this location, in Captain's Cottage, for a week at the beginning of December 2011. Dennis and Jo made us very welcome and we felt very secure all the time we were there. The cottages are well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The gardens beautifully kept. Clearly the owners take great pride in their property. The cottages are a short drive from most of the attractiions and it was very pleasant to be out of the 'rat race'. However, there are plenty of shops close by for food, clothes, post office etc. etc. Internet access was excellent and not expensive. The braai worked well and altogether we had an excellent stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to anyone.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Horizon Holiday Cottage (Captain's Cottage) in Cape Town. It is a beautiful, peaceful, very neat and comforting place to be on holiday. Dennis and Jo's hospitality was exceptional and they were very well organized. They welcomed and treated us like family, it felt like home only better because there was no work to do. The views are beautiful and definitely a magnificent place to stay and explore the nearby areas like Chapman's peak. Looking for accommodation in Cape Town was not easy, (was doubtful, first time in a new province, did know what to expect however, I found the best place ever, Horizon Cottage, the family was very please with my selection and also the expenses was very affordable. I will definitely recommend Horizon Cottages for the best stay in Cape Town.

Thanks guys for your kindness, much appreciated

This was our first nights stay in Cape town, well in the whole South Africa and someone crashed into our car, but the lovely Dennis and his wife Jo from Horizon Cottages where so helpful and sorted all out to get and a new car and stuff. Dennis told us lots about the area and Cape Town and the best place to see, also we had a lovely dinner within 3 min driving distance, as recommended by him. The place is overlooking the bay and we felt so comfortable and home. Many thanks, we will definately come back.

My boyfriend and I attended a wedding in Noordhoek. Horizon cottages were the best priced accommodation in the area. I was so pleasantly surprised when I arrived there. Dennis and his wife Jo are so welcoming and friendly. They made us feel right at home! They are always available for a friendly chat or if you need any advise on the attractions in the area.
The rooms are so neat and tidy. I even asked them if they had just built the place as it felt really new! The cabana rooms are beautifully decorated and have a lovely deck overlooking the lake in Noordhoek. It's really close to Noordhoek village, 2 shopping malls and we found it very easy to drive to places like Fish Hoek, Simon's town and Kalk Bay.
We definately enjoyed our stay!

We initially selected Horizon Holiday cottages due to its proximity to where a friend lives in Cape Town, who we were visiting for a wedding, and we believe we found a gem of a location to stay in.

Our stay was in late March 2011 and we had one of the Cabanas (self catering studio apartments). Contact via email when booking was efficient and helpful; Dennis (one of the owners) was quick to reply and very accommodating with our booking.

Firstly, the owners were fantastic throughout our stay and they gave us a warm welcome, a thorough run down of services in the immediate area and were always on hand for any requests that we might have. We are not travellers who require mollycoddling and we prefer just to get on with things, so this suited us down to the ground, that said I have no doubt that Dennis would assist in any way he could if your needs were more complex.

The accommodation itself was perfect for us, comfortable, spacious and pleasant. The best bit by far was the balcony, which was a very pleasant place to sit at dusk with a drink and a book and we enjoyed some epic sunsets from there. The pool was right on hand as was the BBQ (braai!) and there was WIFI Internet access (for a relatively small - per MB - charge). The self-catering facilities were excellent, although with so many great places to eat in Noordhoek and Cape Town we never really needed them.

Location wise we felt we struck gold with Noordhoek; everywhere you must see is very close and the international airport is only 40-45 mins away. Simons Town and Boulders Beach (penguin colony), the wonderful coastline between Scarborough and Kommetjie, Cape Point itself, Chapmas Peak Drive and Hout Bay are all in easy reach. The city of Cape Town is only 30 odd mins away and the vineyards of Constantia (a personal highlight for us) perhaps 15 mins. For us, who wished to explore as much of locality as possible, the Horizon Cottages were quite simply perfect in their location.

The immediate area was fantastic for our needs also, there is a Pick & Pay (two actually) supermarket and petrol station a short distance away and best of all the Noordhoek Farm Village is probably the closest place for food, this has a choice of three different places to eat and we spent many meals there over our holiday.

To sum up, we couldn’t have been any happier with selecting this as our base for such a memorable holiday, it was very affordable (I would say a bargain), perfectly located, peaceful and comfortable. I can’t recommend enough, plus, if you are the type that wishes to divert your money away from the big monopolising chains that span the globe, you can feel good that you are supporting a small, well run family business. We will certainly use it on our next trip to Cape Town.

We found the cottages online so did not know what to expect - We were very happy with what we saw when we arrived. The owner of the cottage was friendly and extremely helpful. We liked the location as it was a convenient location from which to explore the city and the peninsula. It was also very close to 2 shopping centres and for families with young children, the Noordhoek Farm Village (5 minutes away) is a nice place to explore on a lovely summer day. The cottage was furnished with basic amenities, set in a nice garden for young kids to run around and braai and pool facilities are available. The cottages are housed in a secure environment and we definitely look forward to staying again the next time we are in Cape Town!

My husband and I needed one nights accomodation in Noordhoek Cape Town at the end of our two week holiday in South Africa before flying back to the UK. We contacted Horizen cottages and were fortunate to be able to secure the one nights stay. The accomodation was great and was very close to where we needed to be. Dennis is a superb host and very knowledgable of the surrounding area. We could highly recommend staying at Horizen Cottages.
