“Our stay at Martinette and George's house was incredible. We had the most wonderful time in this spacious, airy, luxurious yet cosy, well equipped and immaculate house. The beaches close to the house are perfect and the 30 minutes drive to Cape Town is not a problem at all. In fact, we liked being a bit outside the city and enjoying the magnificent views of Table Mountain across the ocean from afar. The communication with Martinette was very friendly and without any problems. She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and we were sorry to miss her and her husband just by one day. We very much hope to host them one day at our place. Highly recommended swap!! Love from all of us, Nici and David, Mick and Tom, Kat and Esteban”
“We had a wonderful experience staying at George and Martinette's house. Everything was as expected. The communication prior to arrival was excellent, Martinette shared with us a lot of insight and useful information prior to arrival to prepare our stay. She was full of attention to make us feel welcomed like in a family home. I recommend it highly.”
“Thank you so much George and Martinette. We has the most amazing stay. Throughout the whole swap process we really appreciated all the help and advice. It was such a pleasure to meet you on arrival too. The house was immaculate, light and spacious and offered a really tranquil and relaxing environment. Great pool and garden, plus our son loved the mini "pitch and putt" area. The security of the gated development offered the perfect setting away from the city for our 2 families. Plus the second swimming pool, golf course, tennis courts and running trail around the resort kept us all busy. We hardly left the resort for the first 2 days and were lucky to enjoy perfect summer temperatures all week. Just around 30 mins drive away we had some great days out in and around Capetown. We also enjoyed our own private beach experience just opposite the resort, where you can enjoy fabulous sunsets. Lots of local shops and restaurants just around the corner in Melkbos, if you prefer not to venture to far. We could not recommend George and Martinette's home enough and would love to return another year. ”
“We had the greatest swap experience! Beautiful modern house on a gated golf/beach community. Just a 20 minute drive in to Cape Town, which is a great City George and Martinette are lovely people. After swapping we spent a couple of nights in Cape Town, exploring the town, the restaurants, the Table Mountain, and we loved our day long private tour of the Stellenbosch wineries. Then we went to the Kruger National Park for a few days and saw the "Big 5". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkubQ0OBbqM Probably my best swap in the 8 years I have been a member of LHS. Thank you, George and Martinette!”
“We have just stayed at Martinette’s and George’s wonderful house , It really is great place and so comfortable with everything you need , a real home away from home ,the added bonus was we all felt very safe , the house is situated in a gated community . We were a party of six four of us are golfers the course was in great condition and as guests of George we were given extreamly good rates . Our days were spent exploring Cape Town with trips to wineries , playing golf and tennis and relaxing .We did have fairly mixed weather so sitting by the pool didn’t happen which is a shame ( but as there has been a severe drought in South Africa I am sure the down pours were we,come!)as the garden pool and outside areas around the house are fabulous . Although we ddidnt get the chance to meet Martinette and George due our train beingseven hours late , communication was first class , hopefully one day we will meet and we can entertain them in our house . Many thanks to you both Julie and Tony Scotland uk ”
“Martinette and George are fantastic people. They care about our comfort and the house was perfect. Well located, we made very nice day trip from the house in this area. We warmly recommend this place and will be happy to share also our house with them. Cette maison était parfaite et très confortable. Nous avons apprécié la gentillesse et la disponibilité de Martinette et George. Nous recommandons chaleureusement cette maison qui est parfaitement placée pour visiter le Cap mais également la région au nord de cette ville.”
“Martinette’s group were all very nice and polite. They left our villa very clean. Would highly recommend them to fellow home swappers.”
“Lovely family and great communication.”
Where is it?
Safe, gated community where kids can play outside and explore. Can still sleep with your doors open here. Great golf course and clubhouse. Close to the beach, can smell, hear and see the ocean. Beach is 5 min drive and 10 minutes walk from our home, but the 2nd entrance of our estate is right across the beach. Estate is next to the quiet holiday village Melkbosstrand and 30 minutes from Cape Town CBD. Daily supplies from village or at Table Bay Mall, 7 minutes drive away.
