Family Gimbrère, Netherlands
Toen wij voor een familievakantie Kaapstad hadden gekozen als bestemming, zochten wij contact met Gerrie (oud VNU dagbladen collega)en Anita. Naast het advies voor accommodatie (in ons geval The Gables in Hout Bay) stelden zij met ons een programma samen voor 6 dagen. In een prettig en vlot contact waren al snel de contouren zichtbaar van een actieve en afwisselende vakantie voor de groep van 9, in een leeftijd van 20 tot 60 jaar. Anita en Gerrie kunnen zich uitstekend verplaatsen in de wensen van de gasten, het beschikbare budget, culinaire verwachtingen en de 'must see'-bestemmingen in en rond Kaapstad. Direct na aankomst hebben we tijdens een 'meet & greet' elkaar ontmoet en de reis doorgenomen. Nuttig en plezierig. Ook op andere momenten hebben we contact gehad tijdens de 6 dagen en altijd was het erg gezellig en waardevol. Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien, schoon en veilig. En de omgeving beantwoordde helemaal aan onze verwachtingen. We waarderen erg de toegevoegde waarde die ze bieden (meedenken over transport, excursies, restaurants) en door hun inbreng kijken we werkelijk terug op de mooiste vakantie van ons leven!
Johan and Angelien, Netherlands
Jullie huis in Hoedspruit is fantastisch; mooi gebouwd, goed ingedeeld en smaakvol ingericht. Alles is er, het is er net zo luxe als thuis, alleen met aanzienlijk beter weer en een verkoelend zwembad. De lokatie vonden we ook goed, er zijn veel bezienswaardigheden op redelijke afstand. Bovendien zijn er leuke restaurants op loopafstand en ook de cappuchino 's-morgens is maar een kleine 10 minuten lopen. De goodold SPAR supermarkt verkoopt alles en is ook vlakbij. We wensen jullie veel succes met jullie aktiviteiten in Zuid Afrika, ga zo door dan komt het wel goed of wordt het steeds beter.
Family Levelink and Verduijn, The Netherlands
Voor de vijfde keer hebben wij ook dit jaar weer via Lobecotours drie self catering houses gehuurd. Wederom werd het een heerlijke 5 weeks rondreis en verblijf in prachtig Zuid Afrika, met oude en ook weer nieuwe kennismakingen. Deze keer verbleven wij eerst in het gerieflijke, luxe BushGlam te Hoedspruit, daarna in een mooi huis met fantastisch zeezicht in Llandudno en daarna nog een week in een zeer ruim en volledig huis in Onrus, bij Hermanus. Ieder huis heeft zijn eigen karakter en het is steeds genieten in deze schitterende huizen. Altijd zijn de huizen schoon en smaakvol verzorgd ingericht. Naast de huizen verbleven wij ook in diverse B&B en Guest Houses. De adviezen van Gerrie en Anita zijn steeds weer heel waardevol in, het boeken van de verblijven, tips waar heen te gaan. Afspraken met huis eigenaren en andere organisaties verlopen via hun uitstekend. Wij ervaren Lobecotours als uiterst professioneel en ook zeer betrokken, het zorgt ervoor dat je verblijf in Zuid Afrika een heerlijk ontspannen vakantie wordt. Ons contact is dan ook in de loop van de jaren uitgegroeid tot een mooie vriendschap. Hartelijk dank Gerrie en Anita!
Family Visser, South Africa
Only returned today after an excellent journey through your valley.
We really enjoyed our stay at BushGlam. Everybody was so helpful and the accommodation were excellent. Thanks again for letting us feel welcome in your house.
Family Vermaak, South Africa
Hello Anita & Gerrie.
Firstly, thank you for the very professional and friendly welcome to the facility. We found the accommodation very neat, clean and tidy and so well stocked with an array of spices, and every-day items which is really helpful if one did not have the necessary items on hand on your arrival. This is a very nice touch and so thoughtful!! We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation even in spite of the drought situation and the location is just so central to any direction but close enough not to be 'remote'. Most definitely we will be back when we're planning our next holiday in the Cape and will recommend this to all our friends as a 'well worth it ' stay.
Family Mbeki, Ukraine
We are back in Kiev and its below freezing. So we not happy about the weather.
We had a lovely stay at the apartment and thank you very much for that. We will highly recommend the apartment and your supportive service.
Lis & Bent, Denmark
The house was very nice, with excellent views, and clean.
Raj and family, Singapore
Hope all is well with you! We have just got back home and getting over our jet lag! We are also suffering from withdrawal symptoms as we couldn't get enough of SA! Its has been a blast and the best holiday destination we have been to! It has the beaches, the natural beauty, the safari, great food and wine and the list goes on! We had an excellent time in Bushglam and we were well taken care off. The place was very clean and we had all the amenities that we needed. We felt right at home and was a great experience for the family! The place was also very accessible and had great places to have our meals! We just didn't want to leave. The people were also very helpful and help us settle in very well. Thank you for a great experience and we will recommend the place to anyone planning a trip to Kruger! We will be back in SA for sure in the next few years as we have so much more to see and do in the beautiful country. Cheers
Family Meintjes, South Africa
Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven in Hoedspruit with us, we loved every minute of our holiday.
Richard and friends, UK
Large open plan family home with wonderful views of Hout Bay. The terrace is well sited and useable in all conditions.
Family Kessler, Germany
Sorry for the late reply, but we had to get back into work first.
Our stay was fantastic and we enjoyed it sooo much! The house was just perfect, we only missed the sunset. We really didn't want to leave and want to come back next year, we just need to sort out some dates before we can book again! Working with you was easy, nice and straight forward and we are looking forward to work with you again soon.
Family Boe, UK
We are a family of four (two boys ages 12 and 9), who had the most wonderful Christmas and New Year at this stunning beach side Townhouse. It is beautifully appointed and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Anita and Gerrie were excellent hosts and were very accommodating on early checkout times. There is a all nearby to get whatever groceries you need. And some super restaurants. The beach and waterfront areas are clean and there is a great market on at the weekends. We will be back! Thank you.
Family Cowell, USA
Lovely, modern home with a peaceful atmosphere. BushGlam is exactly as lovely as the photos reveal. The house is decorated in a modern style. The bathrooms are beautifully designed and feel luxurious. Anita was a good host and welcomed us with clear directions and followed up with a personal message to ensure our stay went well. We thoroughly enjoyed the Hat and Creek restaurant nearby and also found the stores to be easy to walk to. Kruger park is about an hour of driving away and it was fantastic! We played games in the quiet evening and enjoyed the pool during the day.
The only reason I did not give it five stars is that there were two parts of this home's write up that were misleading. The home lists air conditioning and while there is one unit, it is only upstairs in the master bedroom. I would have liked to have known this detail when booking. It may not have prevented my booking but it felt as though I was misled. We had six people traveling and four of them had to sleep downstairs. It was very warm. There is a screened window that can be opened and fans in both rooms which did help. Obviously it depends on the time of year that you travel but I believe this area is usually on the warm side. Another detail that was listed was a tumble dryer. There was no dryer. There was a washing machine and we were told to hang our laundry outside on the line which again was sufficient but not what was advertised. We also found a laundromat and laundry service up the street at the SPAR which was extremely inexpensive to have your laundry washed and dried and folded. Overall, we enjoyed our peaceful relaxing stay and are very glad we decided to book this house.
Family Lidgley, UK
I cannot fault anything with the house, a splendid location, spotless, everyone of our party had such an amazing holiday staying at Villa Tranquility. The manager was a great meeting host, very good at taking time to show us all the house, and a credit to Lobecotours. Your email response to never ending queries from us in the uk was exceptional. Thank you so much Anita for making a holiday into a holiday of a lifetime. I shall pass on your company name to any party’s that may be thinking of a holiday to SA, and please pass on my thanks to the house owners. The only;) thing that could be improved, are the photo's of the house on your website. They do no justice to the true scale and fabulous facilities of Villa Tranquillity. Thank you once again for an amazing holiday, the house, and for the help organising it all.
Family Lennander, USA
The house was amazing and only one block from a grocery store and about six blocks walk from the beach and Warf. It was a fantastic location and very spacious.
Thank you for allowing to stay at your amazing place!
Vernon Bekker and friends, South Africa
Everyone enjoyed the property and the setting tremendously. It was just what we needed after a hard day to come back to and relax. Thank you once again for the hospitality and friendliness.
Family Dallas, South Africa
Bushglam is a 5 * experience, everything we expected and more,. From the initial booking right through to leaving after our stay, the owners Gerrie and Anita were fantastic. The house itself is beautiful, everything you need or could think of was provided. we had a wonderful family weekend and will definitely be staying there again.
Family Adams, USA
Yes, we had a wonderful stay in Hout Bay.
The accommodation we booked through Lobecotours only added to the pleasure of our visit. The light and spacious townhouse with gracious amenities was even nicer than we had anticipated. We were very comfortable during our entire stay. Arranging our stay through Anita and Gerrie was done with ease, including the car rental. We thank you for your hospitality.
Family Black, Australia
We are finally home now after a great holiday. Thank you so much Anita and Gerrie for a wonderful stay in Beach Place. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. The house was beautiful, spotless, very cosy and comfortable. We can't wait to come back again. Thank you for your expert organisation and professionalism. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Melissa, South Africa
True to its name, BushGlam
Friendly staff, felt very welcomed! beautiful house with great amenities, like home away from home. Very comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. Didn't get a chance to swim but a wonderful looking pool. I would definitely book again and highly recommend if you want a break from the city
Melanie & Pat, UK
Beach Place is superb. It is a huge property with three large double/twin bedrooms, very comfy beds, two excellent bathrooms, a large lounge, a large well equipped kitchen, lots of outdoor space, and beautiful views from front and back. It's just a sand dune away from the lovely beach. The property is really well equipped. It's extremely secure, being on a gated estate, with a further remote-operated electronic garage door to get into the property, with the door to the house being right next to the two parking spaces. Anita and Gerrie were perfect hosts, meeting us at Beach Place and showing us the property, and were just a phone call away if we needed them. They left us with very detailed information about the property. Check out was just as smooth and quick as check in; it was a pleasure to deal and meet with them.
We found Hout Bay to be the perfect based for exploring the Peninsula. Being centrally located it was never too far from anywhere, just a 25 min drive to Cape Town or an hour to Cape Point, and several things such as Chapman's Peak Drive, Camps Bay, Kirstenbosch Gardens and the winelands are right on the doorstep. Hout Bay itself is lovely, with a large beach and plenty of shops and restaurants. The Harbour Bay Market at the weekends is not to be missed. We didn't want to leave at the end of the week! We would highly recommend Beach Place and wouldn't hesitate to return.
Family Schefman, Netherlands
Wij hebben met 6 volwassenen een week een fantastisch verblijf gehad in de Gables. Alles was zoals we gehoopt en verwacht hadden. Fijne ruimte, zowel de woonkamer als de keuken. Heerlijke bedden en een badkamer per stel. Vooraf veel informatie en enthousiast contact met Anita en Gerrie. Wij hebben ons heel welkom gevoeld in een fijne omgeving. Een huis dat een thuisgevoel geeft. Schoonmaak door Joanna was perfect. Een aanrader!
Dirk& Madleien Mulder from Tanzania
Baie oulike plek!!!
Family Page, South Africa
We were very pleased with the spacious accommodation and my family from overseas loved the house. The beds were very comfortable and all amenities were more than adequate. We were very spoilt with everything available and I am sure we will be back for another holiday in the Cape. Anita and Gerrie you were wonderful, friendly and helpful and made us fell at home.
Family Loic, South Africa
Very Nice and pleasant house very well furnished. The garden with the pool are really amazing. We spent 4 Lovely days there. We recommend.
Lara Gaibie from the UK
Having never been to South Africa before I found this house on the internet and booked it for the days prior to and after my wedding in Cape Town via Anita (as well as car hire) and I absolutely adored the house. Anita was very helpful via email, quickly to respond to any queries without making me feel like I was nagging and met us at the house providing so much useful information about the area and things to do etc. It is in a safe, beautiful area and I highly recommend the Gables - close access to a little shopping area and walking distance to buy your food supplies! Will definitely book it again when we go back to Cape Town. The house was for a few friends, family and ourselves and everyone was very pleased with it including my 18month old niece who had a massive box of toys to play with.
The accommodation was exactly as it looks in the picture and met with our expectations, so many places never look as good as they do on the internet.
Véronique and Maximilien, France
We enjoyed very much our stay in BushGlam, the location was perfect to visit both the Blyde River canyon and the Kruger. The accommodation was very nice and convenient.
As the house is close to the village itself you will not only always hear those beautiful bush sounds.
During the South African winter months the swimming pool turns quite cold because the nights cools it off quickly, although during daytime the weather is nice and warm with lots of sunshine.
But again, we had a great stay. We would come again tomorrow if we could!
Family Semmelink, Netherlands
Great to have 2 separate housing spaces adjoined. The children enjoyed the games and toys. Great kitchen. Nice upper master bedroom. Overall a good and enjoyable stay.
Family Cartmell, UK / Angola
The accommodation was fantastic. Very modern, clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend. We unfortunately didn't see any animals from the garden, but I am assured and seen photo evidence that animals do come.
Anita & Gerrie have been fantastic and always helpful. I would definitely recommend. Thank you for a lovely stay. Our holiday unfortunately ends tomorrow. We will definitely recommend BushGlam to friends.
Family Cantoni from Italy
Fine, very comfortable house.
Family Haraldsted from Denmark
We had a lovely time in Hout Bay. The accommodation was perfect and we felt very much at home and safe. The Gables is a house that has good karma. We were four generations under one roof and there always seemed to be a quiet corner if needed. The fact that we did not have to get into a car to shop was really good as some of us travel long distances daily. Everything was just there and we loved it.
Paul and family, South Africa
Got back to work and straight into it.
Thanks for everything and the Blyde river boat trip was great and will recommend to my friends as well as staying at Bushglam. Thanks so much for all your input towards our fantastic stay.
The Wilde's from the USA
Thanks, We really enjoyed our stay and the balance was a ball too! We'll talk your services up to all our friends. Should we return to So. Africa Hout Bay is on the top of our list!
Family Spies, from South Africa
Hi Anita & Gerrie
Thank you for the lovely stay. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and must say that you are forced to relax in such environment which was must needed. We will definitely consider yourselves for our future travels
Family Swart, Netherlands
Prachtig huis met heerlijk zwembad. Mooi terras.
Family Celliers, South Africa
We had the most wonderful stay at BushGlam, and would recommend it to anyone at any time. The house is absolutely equipped with everything and in the most beautiful surroundings. (Just a pity mom decided to book a holiday in winter and an 11 year old had to watch the swimming pool... Nope he did try it out and loved it)
Anita, your suggestions to what to do was most helpful and we enjoyed our activities as we had an opportunity to pre-book for most of the activities. Tshukudu was fantastic and will go back any time. All and all a most enjoyable holiday as the accommodation was home away from home and town and area well worth a visit.
Bryan and family, France
It was a very pleasant stay in a beautiful apartment plenty of light. Very close to many restaurant and a nice beach. I recommend.
Lindsey & Gavin, UK
Thank you so much again for everything. We truly had the holiday of a lifetime and have come away with lasting memories. Hopefully we'll see you again in the future.
The accommodation was better than we had expected. The pictures do not do it justice. Everything was clean and tidy and well decorated. Whilst we didn't use the cooking facilities in BushGlam or Chapman's Peak as there were some fantastic restaurants within walking distance, it was nice to know we had the luxury of eating in if we chose to. The beds were incredibly comfy and we got a good nights sleep so it meant we were well rested for the tours the next day. The TV was a godsend to Gavin who enjoys watching the sport so having that in the accommodation meant I could do my own thing whilst he kept up to date on the sporting news. Both BushGlam and Chapman's Peak are well situated and have all the amenities you would want close by. We wouldn't hesitate to go back to either in the future!
Cannot fault the service you have provided. You continually went above and beyond to make sure our experience was first class. The accommodation was amazing and it is credit to you both on the wonderful job you do to make people's holidays memorable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family and I really hope to use Lobecotours again in the future. Take care and thank you again!
Ginette and friends, USA
This is a beautiful home and very very clean and well kept inside and out. We had everything we needed. Our stay there was perfect. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay around Kruger Park. The little town also is delightful. I would give our stay a five stars rating.
Family Higgins, UK
Villa Tranquillity really was superb. The photos didn't really do it justice. What a beautiful home! There was so much space, and every conceivable thing required was there for us to use. We really couldn't fault it for comfort, warmth and such a homely feel.
We had a brilliant time. Hout Bay was a peaceful and beautiful spot and really was an excellent location to explore from. The villa is near to everything you might need, but also secluded enough to relax in. Email communication has been excellent, and thus the booking very easy. As always there is some nervousness when dealing outside of a larger organisation but Lobecotours is good proof you can and should trust the smaller operators. Thank you :-)
Family Harleman, Netherlands
The house was absolutely beautiful! It was perfect for our family holiday! Loved every minute we spend in that amazing house! I definitely recommend everyone to go there if you have the possibility! It Will be worth your money!
Leinonen and Immanen families, Finland
We are now back in Finland.
We were very pleased to your work which was very professional and helpful. We really liked the house which was very good and gave us base for a week. Many thanks for the owners too. All of us liked it very much. Special thanks for the kitchen with gas oven and stove which were excellent for cooking which we did and enjoyed. Only thing you could highlight more is the splashpool. We were not sure if that could be used for swimming and playing with children but could easily. That was exceeding our expectations. So everything was fine. All the best for both of you and your work.
Family Colyn South Africa
We had a lovely stay and it was a pleasure meeting you as well! I'm sure you'll see us again in Hout Bay long before we meet in Hoedspruit though, we loved it there :) We had a great experience with everything and I can really just give a thumbs up all the way! Thanks again for all your troubles! Hopefully we will be in for another run next year again.
Andreas, Edith and family from Hamburg/Germany
It's time for us to leave your stylish place :-(!
Thank you very much again for having us here. We thoroughly enjoyed it, making use of everything from outside grill to pool. The kitchen is the best stocked one my wife and I have stayed in around the world (all the knives sharp, perfect utilities). And everything else, the baths and rooms just tastefully designed and decorated (starting virtually from the floor!).
We are moving on into Timbavati but some other time will certainly come back to South Africa, then to Cape Town to see friends and - surely be in contact with you about some place to stay. Thanks again!
Alistair Macleod-Smith from the UK
The house is fantastic. We felt very safe and enjoyed the secluded feel of the property. It is very comfortable; very well equipped, the gardens are very well maintained and the pool is great. It is also very child friendly - our son loved all the toys! We found Hout Bay the perfect base from which to explore Cape Town and the house's location in Hout Bay and proximity to the shops was very useful.
Eva and Jean-Pierre from Switserland
We have returned to good old Europe and are glad, that the sun is also shining here! It has been a great pleasure for us staying at BushGlam again and even longer than last time. We enjoyed every minute at your beautiful home, it's so comfortable. A home away from home! Marilize takes care of everything and Thandi is doing a good job! Thank you also for your kind hospitality. We will let you know, if our holiday plans will lead us to South Africa again. All the best for both of you and kind regards from sunny Switzerland.
Family Rousseau, South Africa
'n Heerlike, goed geleë, puik gastehuis! Mooi, moderne afwerkings en goed toegeruste huis. Vriendelike ontvangs by gastehuis met ingeligte info omtrent die omgewing! Heerlike verblyf!
Sebastian Lesch, Germany
Everything was in perfect condition to enjoy unforgettable holidays. Very spacious and modern apartment. I can recommend this lovely and safe apartment. Anita & Gerrie were very nice, reliable und uncomplicated hosts. Thank you very much for your warm welcome!
Family Mostert, Netherlands
Het huis was erg gezellig, comfortabel en heeft veel charme. Uitermate geschikt voor gezinnen met kleine kinderen, aangezien er volop
speelgoed was, zowel binnen als buiten. Je hoeft nauwelijks op te letten, want de tuin is goed omheind. Het huis geeft ook een heel veilig gevoel. Het contact met jullie, Anita en Gerrie verliep helemaal naar wens. Jullie hebben een heel passend huis aangeboden en ook de autohuur geregeld. Erg prettig allemaal. Wij komen heel graag weer eens bij jullie terug!!
Family Lys from France
It was nice meeting you too at the Gables, and I must say we had a very good time in Hout Bay. The house was perfect for the family: it was bright, it offered plenty of space and we felt just like home. Your presence and explanations upon arrival were also much appreciated. I have already advised one of my colleagues to get in touch with you for his planned holidays in Cape Town. All the best for the future !
Posy, James, Sam and Finn from South Africa
Great. really nice place with lots of homely details and extras that made it a very easy and relaxing place.
Family Savage from the UK
My family and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Bushglam, so much so that we had to ask to stay another day because we couldn't bear to leave! We absolutely loved the house and the furnishings make it something really special. The bathrooms are gorgeous and it was lovely to have such a huge shower - a real treat. The kitchen was also fabulous. The house is in a great area and we loved the Hat and Creek which was within walking distance, there is so much to do in the area so you'll never be bored. We loved Bushglam so much and would go back there in a heartbeat - I have recommended it to all my friends and family in SA and the UK.
Anita and Gerrie seem very helpful and friendly and if you send an email, there is always a very prompt response.Thank you for a wonderful stay - I am hoping to return there one day as we had such a good time.
Family Reijnders, Netherlands
We loved the penthouse. It's beautiful, nice and clean and situated at a lovely place in the centre of Hout Bay. Super is also the parking place for the car in the garage. We reward it with a 10.
Great experience with Anita en Gerrie. Lovely people, very hospitable and great service.
Stracke from Germany
Lovely place to stay, very well equipped, we had a good time!
Alan Kemp, Scotland
My wife and I have stayed in a number of apartments in Hout Bay over the past few years most of which were significantly more expensive than the Chapman's Peak Penthouse. The comfort, spaciousness and brightness leave it head and shoulders above the others that we have rented. The cleaner, who came every week, left the flat immaculate. The flat is extremely well equipped and the wifi is the fastest we have experienced in South Africa. The security is also excellent. There are roughly 10 restaurants within two minutes walk covering just about every ethnicity. Anita was a very pleasant and attentive hostess. We spent a month here and would strongly recommend it to anyone.
Family Liebenberg, South Africa
The accommodation was brilliant thank you, we really enjoyed our stay!!It just went by too quickly!
The service from all of you was great thank you, we would certainly come back if the opportunity arises.
Family Roos, Netherlands
We had a wonderful time at BushGlam and we were sad to leave for home after the ten-day stay. The house is situated on the quiet edge of the tranquil Hoedspruit. Fine restaurants, nice shops and a little further a Spar supermarket are close by. We've found the house exactly as we'd seen on the internet site and it felt like home straight away. All descriptions and photo's are accurate, so it's not necessary to repeat this. The folder with house rules and things to do was very useful. We practically used it as a checklist and have done almost everything, never a dull moment and every activity was a great success. Once tired of all the activities we enjoyed the comfort of BushGlam, especially the large pool. The greater area around Hoedspruit is packed with beautiful scenery, wonderful areas to visit and joyful and interesting activities. Off course the safari opportunities are excellent with all the game reserves and parks all around Hoedspruit. We like to go somewhere else on every holiday, but we are not ready with South Africa and the Hoedspruit area yet. BushGlam has been a perfect home base and we certainly would like to return.
Graham & Gabrielle from the UK
Great stay, very nice pool and Jacuzzi, had a blast though the weather a bit cool, great BBQ. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thx again!
Family Fleetwood, Sweden
We absolutely loved the house with all the space planned in a way that it encouraged both togetherness and a lot of space to find your own place of peace and rest.
We fell in love South Africa! Hout Bay is huge beautifully located surrounded by all these beautiful mountains, the beach and the blue bay. The short distance to Cape Town for shopping and proximity to Chapman's Peak to tour the way down to Cape Point means that there is so much within easy reach to experience.
Everything has worked perfectly, from booking to communication both before we travelled from Sweden until we were on location in South Africa. Management was present in a very good and balanced way. Friendly, service-oriented and gave good, clear information.
We want to thank for giving us the opportunity to rent this home. Because we felt we did not rented a house! We came to a home where we immediately felt at home in. It was worth much more than to rent a house. A place with love and a big heart!
Gia, South Africa
Thank you very much - we thought bush glam was just perfect!
Clean, well managed and gorgeous with everything we needed!
Thank you very very much, we will be back.
Family Vosser from South Africa
We really enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment is beautiful and well equipped, it gives you
a sense of security that you do not get everywhere, and the bed in the main bedroom is glorious.
We all were able to get the rest that we urgently needed. Hout Bay is beautiful.
Anita & Gerrie are lovely people who went out of their ways to accommodate us.
Thank you for your help and the professional manner in which you handle our accommodation.
Everything was exactly as you said it would be.
Family Bastiaansen, Netherlands
5 nachten verbleven wij met ons gezin (5 pers) in Hout Bay. Het appartement geeft veel daglicht en is modern en sfeervol ingericht. Na een drukke dag voelt het als thuis komen en dat is met kinderen dan toch erg belangrijk. Goede bedden, mooie badkamers en een geriefelijke keuken. Ook de aanwezigheid van de wasmachine en droogrek was welkom naar onze reis vanaf het Kruger park. Cape Town was onze eind bestemming en vanuit Hout Bay is het goed te doen om allerlei activiteiten in deze bijzondere stad te ondernemen. Op loopafstand van ons appartement is het strand, restaurants en winkels. Bij mooi weer is het lekker zitten op de balkon om zo al de bedrijvigheid op straat gaarde te slaan. In afgesloten parkeergarage onder het complex is een ruime parkeerplaats. Gerrie en Anita staan altijd voor je klaar als dat nodig is. Gerrie en Anita hebben ons erg goed geholpen met advies bij het samenstellen van onze vakantie.
Wayne & Susan, South Africa
Awesome place, thought of everything, enjoyed every minute, especially the outdoors - cosy, warm, felt right at home.
Njo en Meilan Gouw, The Netherlands
Het verblijf in Hout Bay was fantastisch. Een smaakvol en lekker ruim appartement met alle gemakken van nu. Geen zin om te koken? Geen probleem, in de omgeving zijn leuke eetgelegenheid en in de ochtend kun je gezellig ontbijten bij de Italiaan.
Helaas was onze vakantie zo snel voorbij, maar terugkomen, willen wij zeker in de toekomst doen.
Family Mahoney and friends, UK
We had a wonderful time at the Gables. We've rented quite a few holiday homes over the years and found the Gables to be a very well equipped home with plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses etc. Also the kitchen appliances were first class. Ours and our friends experience overall was excellent and we would not hesitate to come back to the Gables again. Anita and Gerrie were extremely helpful and answered any queries that we had immediately. Again thank you both for everything. We would definitely use Lobecotours again if we were travelling to the area.
Family Jefferies, Australia
The villa was truly beautiful in an amazingly serene setting; we loved the large lawn, the river and of course the swimming pool. Everyone was more than satisfied with the amenities. It was also very apparent that the owners had gone to a huge amount of trouble to ensure that the entire place was welcoming, comfortable and easy to use. We trust we left their home exactly as they left it for us. Anita & Gerrie are true professionals. Working through them was an absolute pleasure; nothing was too much trouble it seemed. They handled everything, from the initial booking, through the various payments, arrangements and directions to the final inspection with friendly professionalism. Would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a holiday villa in Hout Bay. Well done and thank you ladies!
Md Osman & Friends from Singapore
The Gables is a wonderful place to stay. We had many memorable nights dining together, sitting out and staring at the marvellous african night sky. Nevertheless, it was a pity we couldn't use the pool and jacuzzi as it was winter. Hopefully we'll be back in the near future for another holiday! Cheers!!!!
It was great to see both of you and your kind hospitality coupled with your efficient assistance during our stay. Indeed we are humbled by the kindness of all the people that we met and we hope both of you have a lovely time in the african paradise. On behalf of my group, I'd like to say a big thank you. Ayoba!
Family Cooper, South Africa
Thank you so much for your help in arranging our accommodation at The Gables.
We absolutely loved the house and it was perfect in every way. The location in the heart of Hout Bay could not have been better with great restaurants and all amenities on our doorstep. The overall decor and bedrooms were great whilst the fireplace was especially welcoming after a long days exploring Cape Town and the beautiful surrounds. Having a modern kitchen with all the necessary appliances (including the washing machine and dryer) really helped make our stay as comfortable as possible. We look forward to our next adventure to Cape Town and will definitely be in touch!
Fam. van der Merwe, South Africa
We enjoyed our stay at BushGlam. The property is very neat and comfortable with everything close at hand. We will definitely go back during summertime to enjoy the pool and outdoors as well.
Family Peppenster, The Netherlands
Beautiful house, all luxury comforts one wishes, we enjoyed the pool and all luxury.
Experienced Anita & Gerrie as being very helpful, adequate professional approach, great service!
Family Keyser, South Africa
Dear Anita and Gerrie, we had a great holiday and the house was really comfortable and met all our needs. It had all we needed in order to have a blissful time. The service that we received from you was excellent with prompt feedback from you as required. We will definitely recommend the house to friends and family should accommodation be required in Hout Bay :).Thanks again for assisting in making our holiday experience a great one :)
Marco, Marie-Thérèse, Simone en Martijn, The Netherlands
Na een verblijf in diverse landen in Zuid Afrika zijn we de laatste week neergestreken in BushGlam in Hoedspruit. Een schitterend huis voorzien van alle comfort en faciliteiten, ruime slaapkamers en twee badkamers. Een heerlijk en gezellig verblijf, zowel binnen als buiten. Heel centraal gelegen in een van de mooiste delen van Zuid Afrika, dichtbij het beroemde Krugerpark, de Blyde River Canyon en Panorama route. Snel en gemakkelijk bereikbaar vanuit Johannesburg. Kortom, een prima luxe uitvalbasis voor een ontspannen en bijzondere vakantie. Zeer aan te bevelen!
Ravindran, Aruna and friends,Malaysia
Everything we were promised and more. Beach Place was centrally located in enchanting Hout Bay. Beach Place was spotlessly clean, safe and well equipped with all the necessities required for a fantastic stay. We highly recommend this place and look forward to coming back again and again.
Our experience with Anita & Gerrie was straightforward, professional, honest and very likeable. Had the pleasure of meeting them and they came across as very sincere and trustworthy. As stated earlier, we would highly recommend Lobecotours for all your travel needs.
Thank you very much Anita & Gerrie for a wonderful stay in Hout Bay. Hope to use your facilities again soon.
Family Gray, South Africa
Great accommodation in Hout Bay. The hosts were extremely accommodating. The house was lovely and very close to the beach. Thanks, it was a great holiday in Hout Bay!
Family Luke, South Africa
Spacious, comfortable and cozy, well-equipped kitchen area, Lovely games for the kids and exceptionally comfortable beds. Lovely baths and showers.
Even though it was chilly we were never cold during our stay there, we enjoyed the indoor fireplace.
We were a walking distance to the local supermarket, restaurants, fast food and not forgetting the beautiful beach . We will be delighted to stay at The Gables again when we return to Cape Town.
Thank you for the outstanding experience.
Eva and Jean- Pierre, Switserland
We have spent five wonderful days at BushGlam. The house is beautiful furnished, very comfortable and we really felt at home! Hoedspruit has got nice shops and very nice restaurants, we especially enjoyed the food at The Hat and Creek. The morning game drive at the Thornybush Reserve was fantastic and really worth it getting up so early!
Family Johnson, UK
Convenient, fully equipped and fantastic service. The property was very spacious and had all the facilities you could imagine. The wood burner was superb on the cold winter nights and the pool was even warm enough for a mid-winter swim. Anita and Gerrie were so helpful it was amazing, they couldn't do enough to help and were so responsive. The location of the house was superb and we were able to walk to the beach and shops/cafes in town. Highly recommended!
Family Zini, USA
We spent a great week at The Gables. The house is comfortable, well equipped, very spacious and have all amenities nearby (supermarket at 2min by foot). Anita and Gerrie briefed us on everything we needed to know to have a good stay in this beautiful house and some tips to visit the city. We highly recommend this location.
Family Chetty & Lewis, Canada
Wonderful accommodation! Really was coming home for the past week !
Family Barlow, South Africa
Many thanks, all arrived back safe and sound. We had a wonderful holiday and that is in
no small way attributable to your lovely accommodation (especially the fire:)
Pius and Ida ,Germany
Superb !! We were absolutely happy with our stay. Everything was great and we loved the house, the big kitchen and the pool. Anita and Gerrie were wonderful hosts and made us feel like home from the first moment, thanks to both of you. Looking for a great place to stay - you found it right here. Highly recommend it and will come back, when in SA next time. All the best
Family Nash from South Africa
Exceptional!!! From the response to my initial inquiry, welcome/meeting on arrival, to handover of keys on departure.
Everything has been so well organized that when next we are in Cape Town will definitely stay at Beach Place again, if it's available.
Thank you so much for the warm welcome when we arrived at Beach Place. It really felt like "home away from home" with the flowers and Easter eggs.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Beach Place was exactly as I thought it would be from the photographs and its location. Beautifully appointed accommodation, everything has been catered for and thought of. Hope to see you in the not too distant future for yet another break in beautiful Cape Town.
Family Caillault, France
We spent our holiday in this house last week !
We were 2 big families with 7 children and we enjoyed a lot our staying in this property with his swimming pool and barbecue. We loved Hout Bay and Cape Town our trip in South Africa.... so many things to do and to discover!
We had a lot of place and the house is very well equipped very clean, class safety and well located : every facilities were near it and to discover Cap town too !
We appreciated a lot Anita and Gerrie 's kindness and their hospitality. They were available and so nice. Thank you Anita and Gerrie for everything!
We hope to come back one day!
Family Fuhrmann, Germany
It was great. The house was in a good condition. We found everything at its right place.
All was very good organized. Nice and friendly contact.
Family de With from the Netherlands
Een heerlijk compleet huis in een klein beveiligd resort. Mooi ingericht, luxe, compleet. Het huis geeft een gevoel van luxe, alles is er. Vlakbij zijn winkels en restaurants; Kruger en private resorts op goede reisafstand. Het contact met Anita & Gerrie verliep vriendelijk, alles was goed geregeld.
S. Cloete, South Africa
Thanks so much for a lovely house clean well equipped house! We had a lovely stay!
Mr & Mrs Biedermann from Switserland
The house was great, the neighbourhood felt very safe, the communication beforehand was very easy and the information package we received before we arrived very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed or week and we would always come back. If you intend to stay at a very quiet place this is probably not the place to stay since the bordering park gets pretty noisy with kids and families early in the day, but if you look for a modern clean house with pool that is next to nice restaurants and in a safe environment as a gateway to Kruger or the surrounding private game reserves this is definitely worth considering. We loved it at BushGlam.
Family Greenland, South Africa
We had a safe trip back home although the roads were very busy. Our stay in Beach Place were awesome, amazing, super and wonderful.
The best place ever!!!!!!! You were professional and friendly and made us feel welcome straight away. It was a pleasure to deal with you from the
booking until our stay. Thanks so much from the bottom of our hearts for a wonderful 8 nights in Hout Bay. You will definitely see us again.
Glen & Vivian Clark, South Africa
Just a quick note to thank you both so much for a wonderful stay at The Gables. It is a lovely house and has every comfort we could have wanted. Your attention to detail is amazing.
Family Stephenson, South Africa
Excellent accommodation centrally situated and absolutely everything you would need provided. I would definitely recommend this stay to anyone and will be using it again!
Anita & Gerrie were efficient and friendly, everything was exactly as promised.
Mr. Kriek from Ireland
Had a wonderful time at Anita and Gerrie's BushGlam house. It was like staying in a 5 star hotel minus the hustle and bustle of hotel staff. A slice of paradise in the bush. We'll see you again soon Hoedspruit.
Family Sillanpaa, South Africa
Our group of ten people spent a great week at the Gables. The house was spacious and beautiful, and extremely well equipped. Its location was perfect for us, since it took only 5 minutes to walk to the beach and even less to the grocery store and restaurants. Thank you Anita & Gerrie for being such friendly hosts!
Family van Wijk, Netherlands
Wij zijn weer veilig thuis. Geweldige weken gehad in Hoedspruit alles met de kinderen beleefd van Jessica de hippo, de reptielen, de boottocht en natuurlijk het Krugerpark.
Het zwembad was een grote attractie wel tien keer per dag, de kinderen konden er geen genoeg van krijgen. Veel leuke restaurants waar we heerlijk gegeten hebben.
K. Copley and friends, Australia
Thanks Anita and Gerrie. This was the perfect spot. We used it for a work meeting - it was great convenient to shops, cafes, restaurants. And close to the beach for evening walks. Amazing location near to Chapman's Peak. Stunning! So we were able to do some great site seeing as well as work. Loved the house. Everything was perfect. Slight issue with hot water but thanks, Anita, you were soooo persistent at sorting it out. Loved the spaces in the house and garden,great kitchen and dining space, two comfortable lounge areas and an outside lounge and dining area. We used all of them!!!!
Loved the spaces especially that huge dining table, but also the lounge area. The bedrooms worked well. We kind of ranged around the house sometimes at the dining table. Sometimes in the lounge space. We had one meeting (on a sunny day) in the lounge area outside and we had out final lunch together at the table outdoors. The location was perfect so easy to get to everything. It was also nice to have some coffee and tea when we got there. Loved it. very relaxed and a great space to spend time in. Thanks once again for a very enjoyable stay and a highly productive week.
Clairé Wiltshire, SA
We are back home now and laughing and talking about how much fun we had. Loved the house and facilities real home away from home, fantastic!
Anita is great, very helpful and pre-empted what we may have required, in terms of activities for the children and helping me with getting great deals on car rentals etc. Great team and fantastic house, we will be back!
Karen, John and Ollie, UK
Dear Anita and Gerrie
We just wanted to say a big thank you for a lovely stay at BushGlam- you have a really lovely house and we had a great time there - our son loved your pool!
In your area, we particularly enjoyed the Blyde River Cruise and loved The Cotton Club shops and garden, plus Debonairs pizzas were a big hit too! We really had a very enjoyable stay and we will recommend your establishment in the future.
Chrissy Galt, France
A very comfortable apartment with every convenience to hand. I would recommend the property.
Helpful and discrete onsite assistance. All correspondence was dealt with efficiently.
Family Goodschild, South Africa & UK
Totally awesome!!! We had the most wonderful holiday....it was from home to home experience.It was a warm and welcome feeling upon entering Tranquility. The booking, correspondence and all queries was handled in a very professional and friendly manner.
Thank you to Anita & Gerrie...it has been a pleasure dealing with you!
Family Heylen, Netherlands
Het huis is gemakkelijk te bereiken en ligt kort bij verschillende winkelcentra en restaurants van Hoedspruit. Het contact met de eigenaars verliep heel vlot. Vragen en bezorgdheden werden ter harte genomen. Het huis is erg ruim, licht, modern en luxueus ingericht. De keuken biedt alles wat je nodig hebt. De ruime douches en het mooie bad zijn geweldig. Alles was kraaknet. De tuin is een perfecte plaats om te ontspannen na een actieve dag. Het is zeker een aanrader
Family Bowman, UK
Thanks once again for enabling us to have a lovely stay at The Gables - it was so central to everywhere we needed.
Family Gouw, The Netherlands
Uit een gestrest Nederland kwamen we in Hoedspruit aan voor verblijf van een kleine week in het huis van Anita en Gerrie. Een huis met allure waar rust en romantiek uitstraalt.
Wij voelden er ons direct thuis en het was zo ontspannend, dat wij onze energie snel terugkregen. De omgeving is fantastisch, leuke uitstapjes kunnen gemaakt worden en het is genieten van de natuur zowel dicht bij het huis, als ook een paar kilometer verderop in de privé-parken en het Krugerpark. Ook klein wild, zoals knobbelzwijnjes, hoenders en talrijke vogels, zijn in de achtertuin te bewonderen. Bij warm weer is het heerlijk toeven in het zwembad & bubbelbad. Dit alles onder het genot van een goed glas wijn. Het was een onvergetelijke vakantie en zeker de moeite waard om terug te komen.
Family Moran, Australia
The Gables exceeded our expectations. Immaculately clean and stocked with everything a family needs. The Gables is a beautiful and spacious yet warm house. It felt like home as soon as we arrived! We only wish we'd stayed longer. From start to finish Anita and Gerrie were extremely professional, accessible, informative and helpful. We won't hesitate to book services with Lobecotours again and will certainly recommend them to our family and friends.
Family Otto, Germany
The accommodation is perfect for a family with little kids. Everything is very clean and modern. In the kitchen you find everything you need for cooking. Everything was prepared for us and our little son, even a baby cot and some toys.
The service was very professional. We have received a quick response to all our questions in advance. Also on site was helped with problems very quickly. We can recommend Lobecotours. When we come back in two or three years we engage you again.
Family Garrett from the UK
Stunning apartment, wonderful location on beach, the plunge pool was one of the highlights of our 3 year old's holiday, great local agents.
Great shopping centre for food etc less than 5 min walk away, definitely worth highlighting in the particulars. We loved staying in Hout Bay, property couldn't be faulted. Food, wine, beaches, activities all awesome.
Family Chalkney, UK
Just as described and perfectly located. loved it.
I have been very impressed all round by this property. Very clean, with 3 large rooms. Well laid out kitchen/dining area. The pool area was perfect. Just a dune away from the beach and close to shops, restaurants, the famous Hout Bay Market and the Constantia Wine Lands. A short drive to the lovely beaches of Llandudno and Camps Bay. Cape Town was easy enough to drive to, but the satnav did help. I will definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Cape Town. As for myself and my family, we will hope to be staying here again on our next visit.
Family van Rensburg, South Africa
We had a lovely time at Beach Place in Hout Bay.
The house was spacious for us as a family & we loved the fact that it was on the beach.
The service that we received from you were friendly and efficient. Thank you and keep well.
Aga Borkowska, UK
Our accommodation was absolutely great. Everyone was delighted with the house and jacuzzi was proved to be very popular :). As for our experience we found you to be very well organized, efficient and very professional. Thank you for your help and wonderful holiday.
Deborah and Richard Lovell, UK
We had a wonderful time at BushGlam - the house is lovely and had everything we could possibly have needed for our stay, thank you again. The pack with recommendations for things to do really helped - particularly when it started raining!
Hopefully one day we'll be able to return and will definitely be in touch if we do!
Many thanks again.
Family Taffin from France
Hello! Thanks a lot! I take the opportunity to say how we enjoyed our vacations in your home which is very comfortable and lovely decorated. We really love it. we'll recommend it with pleasure and already think about coming back for a next stay... Thanks again for your kindness.
Family Underwood, UK
We all thought it was fantastic! The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped. The elevator really helps with getting your luggage from the secure parking area to the penthouse. Its location makes it all the better as the beach is a stone's throw away and
lots of choice when it comes to dining out or going on a scenic drive of Chapman's Peak and the surrounding areas. Anita was very professional, friendly and helpful. We would most certainly recommend a stay in the penthouse apartment in Hout Bay!
Patience and Gabriel Semenya, South Africa
Good day Anita & Gerrie
I must confess that not all the glossy pictures on the websites for holiday accommodations turns out to be like that in real. BushGlam is one of those which what you see on the net is what you get, totally met expectations! I agree with all the reviews on the website. I totally had a wonderful time, only just that my stay was too short. BushGlam will definitely be one of those I consider for my next holiday.
Family Petersen, Denmark
We stayed 40 days in Hout Bay and we already miss our beautiful flat. Everything lived up to our expectations. The photos on the webpage of Lobecotours truly resemble reality. The flat was attractive and tasteful, looked new, clean and appealing. Overall very good quality! We had the most exciting experience with Anita & Gerrie. The fast and accurate response we received after having
various practical enquiries was highly appreciated. Due also to Lobecotours friendly nature we most certainly know who we will contact next time we visit South Africa.
Liliana & Joao, Angola
Thank you for the wishes and really we loved our trip in Hoedspruit and all of your kindness.
I hope see you in another trip to SA!!!
Family Ewald, South Africa
We had a warm, homely experience in Hout Bay! We as a whole family enjoyed every moment and will go back in a wink of an eye!! From day one speaking to Anita & Gerrie we felt to warmth and honesty!
Mieke and Ben, the Netherlands
We have really enjoyed a carefree holiday in BushGlam, in this beautiful spacious house with pool in Hoedspruit.
It had been perfectly arranged by Lobecotours: flight suggestions, advice for hotel for the first night, even the car including advice on automatic. Once at the destination place we were impressed by the quality and cleanliness of the house, the space, the contemporary décor, the luxurious swimming pool and terrace at 'the bush'.
The safari drives (a must!) and cruise were booked for us. We also received good restaurant tips and valuable suggestions for other special 'things to do'.
In short, it was bountiful top quality! Very professional and recommendable!
Family Bromilow, South Africa
It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you and Gerrie. The house was wonderful and comfortable. Thanking you for everything and we will definitely book through you again.
Cynthia Stapylton - Adkins and friends, South Africa
We returned from Hoedspruit yesterday, as arranged with you, after a terrific stay in your home. Thank you so much, we really enjoyed being there, loved Hoedspruit and its weather and sampling the local cuisine at the various restaurants in Hoedspruit. You really have a lovely place there and I would certainly like to make use of the facility again sometime in the future. It is most conveniently situated - and close to the Kruger Park which we visited on the public holiday. Also most enjoyable.
We really had a wonderful five days in your home. You have thought of absolutely everything regarding self-catering accommodation and besides that your home is comfortable, homely and very conveniently placed. Definitely accommodation to be recommended.
Colleen was very helpful and friendly and was always ready to assist. All in all it was a most enjoyable stay. Thank you so much.
Family Haraldsted, Denmark
Once again, thank you for contributing to a lovely holiday in Hout Bay.You are so good at finding just the right accommodation for all our needs. We had a fantastic time in the penthouse. Perfect for 6 people, spacious, good living area and kitchen and the possibility of taking in the buzz of town from the veranda. Everything virtually at your feet. Good Security and parking too. Definitely a place to recommend ... In fact I already have :) Hope to see you soon again.
Family Bevan, UK
We had a fabulous time in Hout Bay, the house was superb and it was great doing business with you both.
Family Seagrief, Australia & UK
Our experience of the accommodation was that it was comfortable, well equipped and in an excellent location. Our experience of working with Lobecotours (Anita & Gerrie) was the service was efficient, helpful & friendly. Thank you
Family Patrick, USA
We had a terrific stay in Hoedspruit at BushGlam in December. The house was perfect for the four of us. Plenty of room, nice swimming pool and the air conditioning was a relief on a couple of hot nights. Highlights of our time around Hoedspruit included several activities suggested by Anita and Gerrie: Two visits to Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center (the young Cheetahs were great), kisses from Jessica the hippo, and a couple of self guided trips into Kruger Park. The house was conveniently located near these activities and several nice restaurants are within walking distance, with many other restaurants and two supermarket stores located a short drive away. The manager and Anita and Gerrie also went above and beyond in helping track a package to us that had vanished into the South African postal system – they delivered it to us personally (!) in the Cape Town area before we left South Africa. Thanks again for all your help.
Richard and Shirley, South Africa
We are not home yet but are enjoying one more night just outside Hazyview. Your home is fantastic and I have to say attention to detail cannot be faulted, it was like a home away from home. We had a great week and are sad to leave Hoedspruit and BushGlam. The restaurants were great as we tried a few (best was Cala la Pasta) and we had a few birds which we fed at the fence each night, amazing. Unfortunately we did not see any game at the fence. Once again I have to say a lovely comfortable home and a good relaxed week, thank you.
Family Schrijver, Netherlands
Bedankt voor alle goede zorgen, het verblijf in Hout Bay was heerlijk en prima, een aanrader,
Een prettig appartement, netjes en van alle gemakken voorzien! We voelden ons thuis.
Wilna and Chris Heunis, South Africa
We stayed at Bush Glam for 5 days and had a really wonderful time. The house is modern with a large master bedroom en suite and private balcony overlooking the bush. Bush Glam is centrally situated and within walking distance to restaurants.
We had an amazing time in beautiful surroundings and can recommend this accommodation.
Family Withiel from the UK and South Africa
Thoroughly enjoyed staying in the house. Location is excellent, facilities were great and the outside entertainment areas are fabulous. Experienced Anita & Gerrie to be very efficient and pleasant.
Cindi & Peter, Canada
BushGlam was our headquarters for one month during our two-month journey in South Africa. The house in Hoedspruit is very comfortable, nicely decorated, and well maintained, including maid, garden and pool service, and all the modern amenities. Lots of attention to details. The pictures on the website are exactly what you get. The pool is large and is appreciated after a long day of sightseeing. Double showers in both bathrooms were a nice luxury. Our first night we were surprised to see so much wildlife activity behind the electric fence in the backyard. We saw warthogs and guinea fowl in the afternoon and later in the evening some nyalla and magical fireflies. Beautiful outdoor furniture and lighting in the evening for a glass of South African wine while BBQing some game meat.
The house is centrally located for day excursions. Quick trips to the Blyde River Canon for hiking, boating and beautiful afternoon drives. Two gates to Kruger are an hour or so away. We enjoyed wonderful drives to God's Window, the Pinnacle, the Potholes etc. A visit to the Endangered Species Centre is well worth the trip where we saw a rare King cheetah. The Moholoholo Wildlife Rehab Centre is also very interesting. There are lots of private game reserve to visit within half an hour to see the Big 5. Need a rest from touring, walk over to the Spa and pamper yourself with a relaxing massage or pedicure. Fifteen minutes drive, we had a magnificent hotair balloon ride where we saw lots of wildlife. We never ran out of things to do in the area.
BushGlam has several excellent restaurants within walking distance. The Cala la Pasta Italian, Safari Club and the Hat and Creek restaurant have great food, excellent service and very reasonable prices. Five minute drive will bring you to the Railway Station Restaurant which has excellent food also. For the size of the town, there are lots of top notched restaurants and cafes to visit. Thanks Anita and Gerrie for sharing your beautiful house with us and making our trip easy and memorable. We will never forget your hospitality. Will definable be back!
Liz and Carlos Ojeda, USA
Our vacation in Hout Bay began with a warm greeting from Anita and Gerrie. The house was lovely and had everything that we needed. When faced with a small problem regarding the internet, it was handled quickly and efficiently. During our week at The Gables, the USA was hit with hurricane Sandy. Anita & Gerrie phoned us expressing their concern and gave us options if we needed to change our departure. Their hospitality, knowledge, and professionalism was appreciated. We recommend using them for your next unforgettable holiday. Thanks again for all your help and flexibility.
Fam. Bastiaansen, The Netherlands
Wij hebben met onze drie kinderen (alle drie tieners) vijf dagen doorgebracht in het huis van Gerrie en Anita. Het was voor ons een ideale uitvalsbasis voor uitstapjes in de regio. Ons huis was in één woord prachtig. Zoals de foto's op de website zijn weergegeven zo is het in werkelijkheid ook. Mooie slaapkamers en badkamers, een fijne keuken om te koken. We hebben heerlijk geslapen en lekker kunnen luieren in de tuin bij het zwembad. Maar ook de aanwezigheid van een wasmachine, strijkijzer en strijkplank is handig. Hoedspruit is een gezellig klein plaatsje met een aantal restaurants, een winkelcentrum met veel verschillende winkels, goede supermarkten tankstadions pin automaat etc. 's Avonds zijn wij gewoon lopend van een restaurant naar huis gelopen en hebben onszelf geen moment onveilig gevoeld.
De ochtend safari die we bij Gerrie en Anita geboekt hadden is zeker een aanrader. Zij gaan met de jeep ook van de onverharde wegen af de bush in om de dieren op te zoeken. Verder zijn er veel bezienswaardigheden in de regio. We kunnen terug kijken op een zeer geslaagde vakantie!
Luisa from Portugal
It was also a pleasure for us to meet you, such friendly and well-organized hosts!!
I would like to come again, the apartment was a nice place for a family xmas-meeting, the beach so nearby. And I would always recommend you and the place to my best friends!
So have a good happy year - and whenever you want to visit Portugal, just email me.
Family Pitcock from the UK and South Africa
We all loved the accommodation, it is in such a perfect location and the house is just perfect for a big family. The extra little details like the toys for the kids and the kiddie cutlery made it even more special. The pool and jacuzzi is such an asset and we spent time in there every single day. The cost is very reasonable and I know that is the reason why you are always fully booked and we would certainly recommend The Gables to all our friends and relatives. It was just perfect.
Anita and Gerrie are such lovely people and the communication before our holiday was excellent. I felt like I could ask them anything and they will accommodate. Really very friendly and approachable. Thank you so much for making our holiday very special.
Elly and Jo, The Netherlands
BushGlam was voor ons een geweldige ervaring.
Onbekend gingen wij naar het noorden van Zuid Afrika, om te gaan genieten van de natuur en natuurlijk de game-drives. BushGlam maakt ook een onderdeel uit van het fijne gevoel dat je kunt beleven, niet alleen wat de natuur te bieden heeft, maar ook de gezelligheid en warmte wat dit huis met het zwembad uitstraalt. Wij voelden ons daar heel gelukkig! Het huis heeft een smaakvolle, goed verzorgde inrichting. Wij zijn echte Bourgondiërs maar wilden 's-avonds bij het zwembad zitten i.p.v. bezoek aan restaurant, om te genieten van de geluiden die de nachtelijke omgeving bood.
Er zijn zoveel mogelijkheden dat alles niet in 1 week kan worden uitgevoerd, zodat een volgend bezoek aan dit geweldige huis, zeker zal plaatsvinden! Bedankt, alles was prima verzorgd!!
Family Templeton, South Africa
Thanks for the really super furnished house! The boys have full on enjoyed the pool and the surrounding area. We made an afternoon/evening safari drive and saw a lot including the big4, the elephant not for this time!
Dennis and his family, The Netherlands
Na een lange tocht door de prachtige bergen zijn we aangekomen in het kleine plaatsje Hoedspruit.
We werden zeer aangenaam verrast door het prachtige huis met zwembad en jet streamer. Na de rondleiding door het huis werden we ook nog verwelkomt door een groep Nyala's bij het hek van de achtertuin! Hoedspruit ligt redelijk dichtbij 2 toegangen tot het Krugerpark en dichtbij diverse private game resorts. we hebben dus heel veel wild van dichtbij kunnen bewonderen. Met name de game drives die Anita en Gerrie voor ons hadden georganiseerd, waren spectaculair! Neushoorns, olifanten en zelfs een leeuw midden in de Bush heel dichtbij gezien. Maar er is meer te beleven: de Blyde Rivier Canyon en de vele prachtige watervallen. En s avonds lekker bijkomen en nagenieten in de achtertuin. Hoedspruit is een klein dorpje, maar wel van alle gemakken voorzien: curio shops, diverse goede restaurants en zelfs een afhaal pizzeria. Het restaurant hat en creek was wel ons favoriet.
Gerrie en Anita, hartelijk bedankt voor deze fantastische en bijzondere ervaring vanuit de bushglam!
R. Tailor and friends from the UK
Accommodation was exactly as promised and exceeded everyone's expectations who were all very happy with the quality of the accommodation. Anita has been a pleasure to deal with and dealt with all my questions and concerns efficiently. Would definitely use Lobeco again and have no hesitation in recommending to anyone.
Family Enkering, the Netherlands
We were really curious to see BushGlam in reality after all information and pictures we saw.
Our expectations were high, but totally blown away when we saw the reality; BushGlam feels like home, a place to unwind and relax! The furniture and decoration of BushGlam are of high quality, tasteful, modern with an African touch. Of course we used the pool every day, no better way to start your day in Hoedspruit.
Hoedspruit itself is a nice village which meets everybody's needs. We discovered quite some good restaurants, 'Hat and Creek' and 'Safari Club' were our favorites, although we did not had the time to discover 'Ollie's', which is also in walking distance of BushGlam.
On a certain day it was raining cats and dogs and we decided to go back to the house earlier; and there they were standing, at least six Kudu's, just at the end of our backyard, hiding for the rain, just a few meters away - incredible!
We really loved our stay, we have been very active, seen a lot, even the big 5 (of the 6), thanks also for organizing this safari experience for us! Just a week in BushGlam and Hoedspruit is too short, as it has a lot to offer; so much luxury and comfort, safe, wildlife at your doorstep but also restaurants and shops close by. For us (and we are quite spoiled travelers) it was a welcome surprise to experience BushGlam! Thanks, Anita and Gerrie you really made our holiday even more special.
