We arrived at Acara after a delayed flight from England and were greeted with an oasis of calm. The owners Dave and Fiona could not have done more for us and Willow Cottage was perfect. The facilities are good with kitchen, satellite tv, internet, swimming pool. The location is excellent being no more than 30 mins from Cape Town, 20 mins from Somerset West and the long yellow beaches of the Strand. Having visited Cape Town many times and my wife being from the area we were delighted to find this hidden gem and would have no hesitation in recommending it. One final point the lady who handles the cleaning of the rooms Ginny deserves a mention for the way Willow was maintained, she was a credit to Dave and Fiona.
