“Family weekend break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Our family had a lovely weekend at Horizon cottages. The moment we arrived Dennis and Jo made made us feel welcome. Everthing we needed was provided in the cottage and it's a ideal location for visiting local attractions.

We stayed at Horizon Cottages for a week in March and had a wonderful visit. It is an ideal location for tourists looking to explore attractions in and around Cape Town. We had lovely weather and the view from our balcony was beautiful. The cottages and the grounds are very well kept and we also felt very safe. What really made our stay though were the hosts. Dennis and Jo were so helpful and welcoming. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone!

We enjoyed our week in a Horizon cabana. Dennis and Jo were helpful and friendly all the time and they recommended us nice restaurants for eating out nearby. The cabana was very clean, well equipped and it was nice to sit outside in the evenings and enjoy the view over the lakes. There is a lot to see and do in the area, the Waterfront in Cape Town is not far away and the drive there spectactular.

Excellent all around. For folks who want to cook for themselves, like us, the kitchen had all that you need, with the big Long Beach Mall only minutes away for supplies. The room was comfortable and spotless, the price unbeatable and the the owners - Dennis & Jo - were a friendly mine of useful information, clear directions and great tips. The location was perfect for access to all the the tourist sites with ease while staying outside the city proper. We had a great four nights at Horizon Cottages and wished it were longer as there is so much to see and experience in the area. We give Horizon Cottages our highest rating and recommendation and we look forward to a return visit. Way to go, Dennis & Jo!

We had a lovely time in Noordhoek. The Captain's Cottage was spotless and very comfortable, with beautiful linen and lots of space for our family of four. The cottage has a table outside and a private barbeque facility and there is a swimming pool for guests to use. The owners are friendly and they made excellent suggestions for eating out and seeing the local attractions.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Captain's Cottage and loved it.

We've stayed in the Captain's Cottage with only three persons and had more than enough space.
We found a very clean and comfortable place which was a great starting point to discover Cape Town and its landscape.
Dennis and his wife were very friendly and gave us all support we needed.
Even that it was the very beginning of autumn Season we had sunshine and lovely late Summer weather. Last but not least I like to say thank you Dennis, for your last advice!
He recommended us a lovely community market which takes place each Thursday 4.30 pm in Noordhoek. You can find there a lot of different homemade tasty food and a plenty of good wines.
You can go there to have a picnic surrounded by wineyards with a great view on the ocean.
It is a friendly place and its easy to get in contact with the locals!
All in all I can definitely recommend the Horizon's Cottage for everyone who enjoys familiar atmosphere.

I'll be definitely be back!
Thanks Maggie

The place itself is very nice, well furnished, practical. But the location is very bad. It is near a very busy road and it is very windy, when I say very I mean : in summer it is cold outside because the wind is so horribly cold, it is very unpleasant, you have to keep the doors and windows open to have some air inside as the building is wooden with no air conditioning, but the strong draught makes you headache and the nights are hell. I would not choose this place and would not reccommend it.
