‘I will definitely use CVC again. The peace of mind knowing we were in good hands and that there was a great team on hand should we need help was wonderful. I also really appreciated all of the team making us feel so welcome and at home. Everyone we had dealings with was so friendly and helpful, we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you for making our holiday special!’ Linda R. (Michelle’s Beach Cottage) February 2020

‘CVC were excellent from start to finish: the booking process, attentiveness before arrival, after arrival and on departure, plus the follow up WhatsApps afterwards. We were very impressed overall with the service and attentiveness of all parties concerned, thanks.’ Neil S. (Vineyard Villa) January 2020

‘Aurora is a beautiful house with fabulous views and location. Service from CVC was excellent. We had a fabulous time, the villa and CVC were fabulous and would love to stay in the house again.’ Steve S. (Aurora) January 2020

‘Bay View House exceeded our expectations. It’s an amazing home, the fireplace was lovely on the cold nights and the beds were so comfortable. CVC gave us the most professional service we’ve ever received. Janene was so on the ball and assisted us perfectly. We’d definitely recommend both the home and CVC.’ Chris S. (Bay View House) January 2020

‘This house was such an amazing place to stay during our holidays. We were a big family with small kids and it was perfect. Child friendly and lots of space for everyone. The pool was great with an easy pool cover to take off and on. Loved that the beach was a one minute stroll away. The house is perfectly situated so if the wind is strong you are well sheltered on the outdoor patio. We had a really tough time leaving the house when it was time. The service we received from CVC was spectacular. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. The kids received Christmas gifts and the communication was on top! We received quick responses to our questions and concerns and CVC were very helpful with our added needs.’~ Sarah J.(Little Bay Villa) January 2020

‘The house is absolutely beautiful and furnished & equipped really very well. We had a wonderful week and would very much like to return in 2021. The house and garden are amazing and truly I don’t think I have seen a better view anywhere in the world! CVC couldn’t have been better or more accommodating and helpful. Your team are fantastic and communicated so well… They are brilliant.’ ~ Tom L.O. (Kelp Beach House) January 2020

‘Fantastic. The property exceeded our expectations with excellent in-house services.

‘Beautiful family home. Every possible thought has been put into making the house comfortable. The veranda was blissful, by the pool and BBQ. The level of comfort was amazing: every chair felt welcoming. The mattress was great. We always come through Cape Villas who have a selection of exceptional houses and the service they provide is exceptional. My daughter left her beach robe behind and it was returned.’ ~ Michael B.

‘The house was a perfect fit for our family holiday. Easy beach access, well equipped with thoughtful touches (such as beach towels and basic supplies to get us started) and lots of space for a group of 8 spanning three generations! Very professional and attentive team. I could tell that CVC worked closely with the owner to ensure that the property was ready for us. The thoughtful personal touches, such as treats for the kids, were very much appreciated. I would definitely consider another CVC property for future holidays!’ ~ Kathleen W.(Kommetjie Blue Waters) December 2019

We felt very well looked after and it was an absolute treat meeting the team who had made it all happen, as well as receiving the welcome gift and the personalised card prior to arrival. The team was incredible! Anneline worked incredibly hard to find us the perfect venue for our wedding weekend and Mary-Anne was super with all the admin requirements. They made this entire experience absolutely delightful.’ ~ Kathrin R, (Little Bay Villa) December 2019

Was always available to help and dropped in to see we were ok and gave us lights for load shedding. She was fantastic, and coming from a fuss pot like me, that says a lot! This is our third year with CVC. Will definitely return.’ ~ Karen M. (Greenways) December 2019

‘Hi Casey!! GREAT news. The payment is in. Thank you SO MUCH for all the effort you went through.
I really appreciate it loads!!! Quite simply, the utmost best service I have EVER encountered, ANYWHERE!!!! So much so, that I will never again go on holiday in the Western Cape, without booking accommodation via Cape Villa Collection. Expect a call from us soon. And as for Magellans Guesthouse, what an UNBELIEVABLE experience! Luxury at its best. Best view of the ocean you could hope for!! And without a doubt the best food in town! Thank you once again for probably the best holiday experience I’ve ever had in South Africa. We’ll definitely keep in touch. All the best!’~ JP Crous (Magellans Guesthouse)

‘I am so pleased as I can now check in! You are as ever most patient and I am most inefficient and my sincere apologies. Cape Villa Collection maintains it’s unique position of the very best in Africa – well done.!’~Mike D.

‘Hi Nicky, First, I want to thank you and Ashley for the beautiful photo of you both and for your thoughtfulness regarding Alan’s birthday. We will enjoy the bottle of bubbles this evening, very sweet! I must tell you, this apartment is FANTASTIC … we love, love, love everything about it!!! Thank you so very much for finding this little gem for us … it definitely will be a repeat. Besides my affection for you personally, this is just one more reason why we continue to work with you and will continue to do so on all future visits to So Africa. Tyrel was here today and set us up with modem and phone, so we are set for the entire trip … thank you, he is pretty special as well. Also, car was delivered on time. I hope that we share a meal or at the very least a glass of wine together during our stay. Alan and I would really enjoy meeting you in person! Yes, we are merrily ensconced into Geneva and loving every minute!’~Alan & Rose Ann Y.

‘Hi Iain, Oh wow, we had such a lovely time! It was exactly how I wanted it to be, peaceful and just perfect! The weather was super, we went up Table Mountain, drove around the coast to Simon’s Town and Boulders, ate at the Pepper Club in Camps Bay etc The apartment is great, really well placed and just stunning. Check in and out was easy and especially the gentleman (I have now forgotten his name sorry) who checked us in was very helpful, he showed us the whole place and was really kind. Security was super too, everything worked perfectly, we were especially impressed with all of the kitchen equipment. There was everything and more that one could need. The cleaning ladies did a brilliant job, and it was great to have the car parked indoors, we were a little worried about the car lift but after two or three times my partner had it sorted and even enjoyed it! Ha ha, boys and their toys!! :O) Everything was just brilliant! There are only a couple of tiny details that I could give as ever so slightly improvement feedback! One would be the hairdryer is attached to the wall in one bedroom with no mirror, it’s rather badly placed, towards the floor. The music system (hi-fi) didn’t pick up any radio stations, an arial problem probably. But goodness none of these things were a real problem for us, that’s just all we noticed. All in all yourself and Nox have 3 very happy customers and we’ll certainly recommend you to our friends. You’ll definately hear from us in the next year or two for our next trip to SA! Thanks for everything Iain, was a pleasure dealing with you.’~Kerry R. (2011)

‘We were very happy with our stay in Camps Bay, the apartment was gorgeous, and we enjoyed every day there. I am not sure whether in our lifetime we will come to South Africa a second time, but if we did we would certainly remember our good experience with Cape Villa Collection.’~Peter & Anita W. (2010)

‘Thank you so much for everything. We were very happy with the apartment, everything was clean and most suitable and your service and assistance with finding this apartment was great. Your help is much appreciated.’~Brenda S. (2011, 2015)

‘Thank you very much for organising our fantastic accommodation Casey , it was truly superb , and for all your assistance during our very enjoyable stay in Camps Bay. We shall definitely be returning and will not hesitate to use your highly professional and personal service in the future. 10/10!’ ~ Duncan H. (2011)

‘Reid House definitely reflects a home away from home – with all the amenities you could require! The view is spectacular and the house is spacious and comfortable. Most importantly, the kids were kept busy with various activities both inside and outside the house, letting the parents relax! Thank you to the wonderful staff of Cape Villa Collection – Nicky, Ian and Casey for your friendliness, attention to detail and professionalism! We will definitely be using your service again!’~ Tertia H. (2011, 2012)

‘Dear Nicky, My family decided to vacation in Cape Town for Christmas and New Year. My husband and I work in Cairo and our adult daughters live in Hong Kong and New Zealand respectively. So, finding and agreeing on accommodation was challenging! I had the pleasure to work with Iain for several months before securing accommodation in Cape Town. at all times, I found him to be polite and efficient in following through queries. He often went beyond his duty to help make our stay comfortable. We leased an Apartment for 10 days. He patiently listened when we found our accommodation to be more than unsatisfactory. He followed through with phone calls to the owner and to us. We were also grateful to him for phoning around to find out about New Year dinners (again at a very busy time of year). We truly appreciated Iain’s efforts to try make our vacation as enjoyable as possible. He’s a true asset to your organization and is a wonderful ambassador for South Africa’s hospitality industry. Thank you very much Iain!’~ Sungeeta S. (2011)

‘Ciao Casey! We got back safely! The stay was beautiful, thanks also to you and your support. We will keep in touch to organize something for next year!’~ Luca T. (2011)

‘I need to thank you for excellent help you have given us during this vacation. I could not think of anything better.’~ Onur T. (2010)

‘Iain, Thank you for all of your help in setting up our holiday and then dealing with the delay in arrival. The house was great and everything went to plan (except weather which meant we could not fish!). Would be happy to be a reference for potential UK clients if needed.’~ James A.

‘Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Iain for your help with sorting out the accommodation. The place was more than expected and it made a perfect holiday. If you could please pass our thanks to the owners who were very helpful and accommodating. Again thank you for all your assistance and I shall definitely be booking again for next year.’ ~ Danielle C. (2010)

‘We have had the privilege of using Cape Villa Collection to arrange our visits to South Africa over the past six years and not once have we been disappointed or let down in the quality of the Villa, location and the support received from Nicky Taylor and her team. Whatever problems that arise they are dealt with immediately. Their ability to make the whole booking experience both enjoyable and seamless is credit to Nicky and it just seems to happen every year faultlessly and the greeting on arrival is similar.. We strongly recommend Cape Villa Collections be your first call when planning a visit to Cape Town – you will not do better.’ ~ Mike and Penny D.

‘Confirming that we have rented 5 and 6 bedroom villas through Cape Villa Collection for the past 5 years and we have always had wonderful, personal service with them. Nothing is ever too much trouble and if you are lucky enough to rent one of the houses managed and cleaned by Sweetness then you have really hit the jackpot!’ ~ Jocelyn B. and Colin K.

‘We have been going to Cape Town as a family for over 4 years now & each trip has been successfully arranged by the lovely Nicky at Cape Villa Collection, she has been efficient, knowledgeable & very friendly – always going beyond the call of duty to find us exactly what we are looking for as well as helping with our more bespoke requests ie. child care, local doctors, food deliveries, excursions etc.
I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Nicky’s services to anyone looking to book a memorable trip to South Africa.’ ~ Victoria & William O.

‘We try to annually visit Cape Town and have found the service provided by Cape Villa Collection excellent in all aspects. From the outset they understood our requirements and have unfailingly delivered peace and tranquillity as a contrast to our busy UK life. We believe they also have an influence over the weather!’ ~ Iven & Ruth W. (2015)

‘Thanks for everything Nicky – just to let you know we LOVED Bali it was perfect for us. We had one day of incredible sunshine before the weather turned but it was just so cosy after Destiny (which we also loved). Appreciate all of your help in finding our accommodation and making our stay in Cape Town a real success. Until our next visit…’ ~ Claire and Johan

‘We stayed in the Old Winery which is a fabulous villa with beautifully kept gardens. The whole stay from start to finish was expertly managed without a hitch by Cape Villas. In fact the service was above and beyond expectations, nothing was too big or too small and the help provided on itineraries and local restaurants was invaluable. Particular heartfelt thanks to Nicky Taylor who organised a wonderful surprise for my bride to be of flowers, champagne, rose petals and candles which absolutely set the perfect romantic tone which followed through the entire stay. We loved it so much that we booked to come back the following year before we had even finished our time in the Villa!’ ~ Ken H.

‘Nicky and the Cape Villa Collection team are an absolute pleasure to deal with. Nothing is ever too much trouble. We have used their services every year for the past 5 years. Any issue (of which there have been very few), however minor, is sorted out professional and expediently. We have recommended Cape Villa Collection to many of our friends who have also enjoyed similar, positive experiences.’ ~ Imogen B.

‘No criticism, you were all fantastic to deal with.’ ~ Alison D. (2009)

‘Thanks so much for all your help. We had a wonderful time with glorious weather and the house was fabulous.’ ~ J Ings-Chambers (2009)

‘Dear Nicky,

Thank you so much for arranging our accommodation for our stay in Cape Town. It was perfect. When we first approached you, we thought it was going to be a tall order to find secure accommodation and parking, near to Claremont, and with a gym and sensibly sized pool. But you came up with the perfect match within days.

The training facilities were essential for us, as our daughter had been selected to represent England at Judo in the Commonwealth Games Championships. She flew direct to Singapore from S.A. to compete, and came home with a bronze medal. I’m sure she would not have achieved that without having everything to hand within the accommodation you arranged for us.

We hope you continue with the success of Cape Villa Collection and look forward to booking with you again when we are next planning a trip to S.A.

Kind regards’ ~ John B. (2009)

‘Thank you very much, Mr. Guerreiro has returned home and he enjoyed his stay. Thank you very much for assisting me at the last minute with minor details on Christmas Eve, I really appreciate the gesture. Cape Villa Collection really does go out of their way to assist the client, very much appreciated.’ ~ George B.

‘We had a great time in Camps Bay and I have to say the property and its situation worked really well for all of us.

‘Lovely to hear from you. We are all well thank you – as I hope you are. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly and will most definitely do business through you again. Please can you also pass our thanks to the owner of the property – we had a very comfortable and most enjoyable stay. I would be happy to share my experiences with your clients – please feel free to pass on my mail address to her if that would be useful.’ ~ Stef C.

‘The villa was an excellent choice for our party and therefore all congratulations have to be handed to you. As discussed in the early days, yes there are villas with ‘bigger wow factors’ but how ‘comfortable’ they would be who knows? Similarly, how many of those villas were within a 2 minute (gentle) walk from the bars, restaurants, beach, taxis etc etc. – not many I think. Finally, would those villas have staff like Lydia and Lorraine looking after us as good as our mums used to – I don’t think so!!!!!! Iain, you did us proud, you ticked all the boxes, you delivered what we asked for, you provided us accommodation which fulfilled our specific requests – excellent !!!!!!

I will have no hesitation in recommending Cape Villa Collection and in particular you personally, to any prospective visitors to Cape Town.

I apologise again for not getting to meet with you socially, time simply ran out for us and we didn’t do all the things we wanted to anyway – it would be fair to say we hardly ‘scratched the surface’. What a fantastic place you live in, every one of the guys, even the less culturally aware, thought that the area was fantastic – you are truly very fortunate to live in such a beautiful country.

Iain, please let us keep in touch, I will certainly promote Cape Town but in particular CVC who played such a major part in making our holiday a truly memorable one. On behalf of all of the guys, we would like to thank you and all your staff once again for your dedication.’ ~ Pat O’C.

‘You arranged for my boyfriend and I a wonderful stay in Camps Bay last year in May. I don’t know if you’re still in this business, but I have recommended a number of friends to you and wanted to make sure that’s ok with you and that you are indeed still at this address. We were very happy indeed with your services.’ ~ Rita B.

‘Thank you so much for all the organization of things and that everything was just perfect! We shall definitely be wanting to go there again in future. Boyce really rested well and relaxed wonderfully. He’s just in love with the place and kept complementing me about finding and discovering it. It wouldn’t be without everyone’s help! Thank you!’ ~ Anita L.

‘Everything was perfect from the arrival right through to departure. Thank you very much for everything and I will definitely recommend you guys to anybody needing accommodation in Cpt.’ ~ Emlyn M.

‘I am back in Paris this morning. That was the most miserable week-end I ever spent in Cape Town for the last 21 years !! But of course you are not in charge of the weather and the property was absolutely perfect, we would have obviously more appreciated with some sunshine …in November ;-) Should I have the opportunity I shall not fail to recommend your services and if you provide me with a link to place comments on you web site I will gladly do so. Wishing you a nice summer … soon.’ ~ Bernard A.

‘Britta and I are very pleased to know that we have now finally found the perfect place for our stay next year. Thank you again for all of your efforts to date.’ ~ Nils H.
