Client Testimonials

Here are some kind words that recent Cape Portfolios' clients have had to say about us and their villa holiday experience. Thanks everyone, it really means a lot to us!


"The perfect holiday experience ever, we will contact you again" Jens Michelsen (Bali House)


"Fantastic time, thank you for everything!" Danyal Kola (Indigo)


"We deeply appreciated the professionalism and attitude towards our requirements, many thanks again to you and the team for all your kindness and we will definitely see you again" Ian Charlton (Summer Rose)


"Hello Candice, we are home and back to our daily life. My family say it was their best holiday ever and you made that happen for us, thank you!" Donna Jarnagin (Tranquil Skies)


"Best part - ease of booking and knowing you have the best access to the best properties" Patrick Dooley (Carpe Diem)


"I would like to thank you (and your team Kelly and Thomas) for your kindness and prompt answers to any of our needs" Caroline Faurie (White Cliffs)


"We had an absolutely superb holiday in Cape Town and at our gorgeous villa! I will tell anyone who will listen about the joys of South Africa and the benefits of hiring a villa. We found the whole experience brilliant, particularly with travelling with a small child, which can seem quite daunting when going to such a far flung destination" Abby Heiser (Beach Villa)


"Candice was extremely friendly, helpful and professional from the moment I approached her. She helped us in choosing the best villa for our needs and budget and put up with my endless questions. The lay out of the villa was absolutely stunning - you get a real 'wow' factor the moment you walk in. The location was great, with views to die for, and we felt at home within 5 minutes - so much so that it was hard to leave at the end of our stay!" Verena Neumayr (Sundowner)


"I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Camps Bay - thank you again for all of your help. As I'm sure you are aware, the apartment is amazing - I would move there in a heartbeat! A friend recommended Cape Portfolios to me and I will certainly be passing your name on to friends and colleagues. Overall, my only regret about the holiday is that it was not long enough but, at least I now know exactly where I'd like to spend time if we manage to come back to South Africa!" Sue Tregoning (Nautica)


"Great place (both the house and Cape Town) - we will definitely be back! Everything has been great, enjoyed ourselves immensely, sad to leave. A beautiful apartment with excellent facilities and stunning views. Your representative was present when we arrived from the airport and gave a comprehensive introduction to the house - she was charming and friendly" Siva Pillay (Strathmore House)


"May I thank you though for the huge efforts you made on our behalf and the excellent choices you came up with. I must say that the Cape Portfolios site had the best and most comprehensive pictures of villas of any of the websites we browsed - your designer should take a bow! I am sure that we will return to CT for another holiday and we will certainly remember your hard work and hopefully book through you the next time". Ros Gamblin


"Hi, I just wanted to post a review of a villa I stayed at in Cape Town. It was called Beach Villa 1 and I rented it through Cape Portfolios. It was so divine. Very big, light, comfortable. Slept 9 adults EASILY. It has a gorgeous pool which overlooks the beach in Camps has a big kitchen, a bar area, a dining area - really, it's fab. I dealt with Louise at Cape Portfolios and she was divine. Actually all the staff there were great, they made it all very easy. There was a welcome tray of biscuits and wine, a congrats card (I was there to get married), they arranged cars to pick us all up at airport (we all arrived at different times), they moved us one day when there was drilling next door so that we could sunbathe in peace - they were really lovely to deal with. No complaints whatsoever.

One of my best trips so far as we felt really spoilt and were treated like I imagine five star people are treated. Fab." Irish (Review posted on Trip Advisor)


"Thank you very much for all your help during our stay, we felt very well looked after by Cape Portfolios and will have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends" Lynda Elliot (Summer Place)


"We will definitely be back next year, have even booked for 1st February 2012 with the agent already, thank you for everything" Berger (San Maria)


"We had a lovely time and we will come back again, thank you once again" De Crom Party (Bali House)


"Our accommodation was amazing, we really couldn't have asked for better" Irwin


"It was my intention to give you some feedback on my return, but pressure of work, etc, etc ....we had a wonderful holiday and were absolutely delighted with the apartment at Nautica. It fully met our expectations in every way. We enjoyed visiting other areas but if returning to Cape Town would certainly opt again to stay in Camps Bay area. Nautica and its location were perfect for us - truly excellent accommodation, spotlessly clean, close to restaurants, not in the middle of traffic, easy to get to main roads. Everything worked fine for both check-in and check-out.

Since returning I've been extolling the virtues of our visit and if friends are considering visiting the general area I will definitely be advising them (indeed, urging them) to select Nautica apartments as a location to stay..." Gerry Kelly (Nautica)


"I love the place will come back next year same time again" Marc Scholermann (Indigo)


"Just a quick note to say a big thank you for a wonderful week in Cape Town. Villa Sundowner was absolutely stunning, it was hard to leave today - I wanted to move in full time!! We also had an absolutely beautiful wedding day, so all in all a fantastic stay" Verena Neumayer (Sundowner)


"I hope all is well. Laing's and Taylor's want to say a huge thank you for their stay last week" Laing (Summer Place)


"Please do also thank the owners of Bali House. It was great for our CPT stay even though as you had told us before, it really wasn't a "family place". But it was very stylish and we felt very privileged getting to stay there. Kate's efforts in the kitchen were superb and she was so kind to help us with our shopping. We hope that she realizes just how grateful we are for her kind and excellent service. Also the steward, Amon, was extremely friendly and always looking for ways to make our stay more comfortable. The villa itself was immaculately up kept and I was glad it featured an elevator" Tuitjer & Milner Party (Bali House)


"...the house is stunning - we are happily settled" Sonia Kanji Mozambique (Aquatic House)


"thanks for your help with the property" James Carter (Rontree Reflections)


"Super. Thank you very much". Dobek Pater (Bali House)


"Thank you Chuma, it was a great house! see you next time!" Anja (Heron Waters)


"Atmosphere, beauty of Cape Town/Camps Bay. Overall, very satisfied and would recommend service to others who are looking to stay in Cape Town" Patrick Dooley

"Far exceeded our expectations! Probably the best all round property we have ever stayed in" Mark Moss (Upper Geneva)


"The villa surpassed our expectations" Edward Tillinger (Sundowner)


"Also of note, Maggie, our cleaner during our stay was a delight" Frith Roch (Sedgemoor Suite)


"We had a very nice time at Sea House which is well equipped Richard has been very helpful I would recommend the place especially for families" Mar Peterhan (Sea House)

"Again, the villa was wonderful, and everything was well beyond expectations" James Munn

"Hi Candice, thank you for the email! The apartment was great! Cape Town Beautiful!! The World Cup! Everything!!! We will come back for sure! Many thanks!!" Jonathan Luna (Nautica)


"La maison correspondait bien à nos attentes, pleine de charme et de petits détails qui font qu'on se sent chez sois. The house was great, lots of charm and full of little details which made us feel at home. La terrasse "couverte" et abritée du vent nous a bien été utile car nous avons eut deux jours de tempete en arrivant; The covered terrace was well used by us as we had 2 days of strong wind upon our arrival. Nous avons decouvert ou redécouvert cette région qui est vraiement magnifique avec des paysages superbes. We have re-decovered this region which is truly magnificent with superb scenery (Coral Seas)


"Got back to London this morning and what a contrast, 3C, but at least sunny, so we must have brought that back with us. We had a fabulous month and really enjoyed Camps Bay and Cape Town, we shall return next year I expect. Very many thanks for your very efficient organisation, which meant everything went very smoothly" John Shaw (Nautica)


"New Horizons - We loved it! And we're terribly sad to be back in the New York winter. Thanks for everything... The apartment was amazing and we really enjoyed it" Kyle de Klerk


"Just a short note to thank you and the Cape Portfolios Team for a wonderful stay in Camps Bay. We all loved Bay Vista and had a wonderful time on the beach and exploring the Cape etc. Hoping to be back next year" Adam Peasey (Bay Vista)


"We had a wonderful time at the house in Camps Bay, it was perfect, thank you for all your help" Karen Kellett (Indigo Villa)

"Summer Rose was absolutely perfect for us and thank you very much for all your help. We had a marvellous time and we hope to do business with you again" Adam


"We are now home and had a wonderful holiday. The apartment was perfect and in a great location, so thank you for all your help with booking it etc. I'm sure we will be back again in Cape Town some time in the next few years and we will keep your details in case we should be looking for somewhere to stay. Thanks again for your help" Mary Boleyn (Summer Place)


"Just a short note to thank you and the Cape Portfolios Team for a wonderful stay in Camps Bay. We all loved Bay Vista and had a wonderful time on the beach and exploring the Cape etc. Hoping to be back next year so let me know if you can offer competitive rates to returning clients, thanks again" Geraldine (Heron Waters)

"We had the most fantastic time in Cape Town. Heron Waters was the perfect location for us. The apartment was perfect, and I certainly have no complaints. The wedding in the wine lands was spectacular, and everything went off with out a hitch, we were blown away by the hospitality, standard of food and service in the local restaurants in Camps Bay and every other place we visited. We were also astounded at the low prices for such high quality food and drink. Joyce our house-keeper/cleaner was pleasant, obliging and efficient. I wish I could iron clothes like she does!"
