Feedback from our guests

“Our holiday was in one word ‘fantastic’! The house over achieved our expectations. I even regard it as one of my best holidays ever. In the end both Gillian her parents made it and they also, in their own words, had a holiday they will talk about for years! Lavender villa is an absolutely stunning home in a great setting. The house is modern yet has a ‘warm feel’ to it and is very well kept. When we arrived it truly felt we arrived in a 5 star hotel. A great deal of attention is spent on detail and the house is spotlessly clean. There is nothing to fault. Every last detail is thought of. Thanks for the lovely wine, cookies and chocolate – highly appreciated. The cleaning lady was very friendly, hardworking and thorough! The view from the garden allows you to watch the sunset over Noordhoek beach. It is a great place for children too. The neighborhood is safe and very close to a bar, shops, deli and a few great restaurants. Noordhoek is also a great starting point to explore the Cape, and is a good place to relax yet still close to the action with Cape Town less than 30 minutes away. The kids both absolutely loved it; the garden, the climbing rack and the toys and DVD’s in the house. Extra note, we loved the showers! We enjoyed every second in this haven, we have had an amazing time and would love to come back. It is clear we would highly recommend staying here. (Is it for sale by any chance?). Thank you for making this an unforgettable holiday for us.”

“We spent a superb week in Lavender Villa! Set in the lovely Noordhoek are, it is a perfect base for a varied and relaxing break. Each room is spacious, tastefully decorated – with crisp freshly-laundered linen, and thoughtful finishing touches. The open plan living room is large but cosy and inviting. And there is a fireplace to add warmth on nippy autumn evenings. All in all it’s a much loved family home. The gardens are perfect for children to play with a good sized pool, plus trampoline and climbing frame to keep them busy. There is a stunning beach just a stone’s throw away. Plus, some fantastic local pubs and restaurants. We spent a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon at Café Roux, listening to the live music whilst our children had a ball in the adjoining play area. The agent is fantastic – helpful, friendly and knows the area well. I can recommend Roy for the airport transfers too! We loved every minute, and can’t wait to return.”

“We have so enjoyed staying here at Lavender Villa for the past two weeks – It is the perfect spot. We are very sad to be returning to a cold rainy London, but, if the house is available next year, we will be returning! Evelyn is a star, – thanks for all our laundry and ironing! We sincerely hope to be back next year. The house is brilliant and we felt very safe and comfortable here. Here are a few of the best things we found: Best restaurant: – ‘Harbour House’ in Kalk Bay Harbour. Awesome food with a brilliant view. – although the Namibian Fillet steak at the ‘Foodbarn’ down in Noordhoek Farm Village was just fantastic, and would heartily recommend. Best Beach :-Water’s Edge. Not many people know of this one and we were told about it by a friendly local. To get there, park at the main visitor parking for Boulder’s Penguin Centre(by he Seaforth Restaurant), walk towards the Penguin Centre and 100 yards on the left before you get there is a small wooden fence (by the first telegraph pole on the left). It looks like a Private Property, but the latch for the gate is at the top. A short walk down the hill brings you to a lovely secluded sandy beach. Even on a Saturday, there are only a handful of people there. Best Play Area/Restaurant for Children:-‘The Barnyard’- We have a toddler who loved this place. It does decent breakfasts and the tables are next to a giant sandpit for the kids. There are also sheep, goats, ponies, lots of birds, rabbits etc, and a petting area for the kids to touch. To get there- drive over Ou Kaapse Weg, towards Steenberg. At the junction, turn left towards Tokai, and it is 300 yards on the left. We could go on and on- everywhere ‘round here is so child friendly, and we have had such a fabulous time.”

“Het huis beviel zeer goed! Erg mooi allemaal! Het is een heel leuk huis. Van binnen en buiten ziet het er mooi uit en het is groot genoeg voor 10 mensen. Keuken was ook groot en alles zag er mooi uit, mooie kamers en veel badkamers. Cape Holiday Lets gaf erg goede service en was erg behulpzaam.”
