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

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.
Family de With from the Netherlands
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. Much Love.

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.
Family Stephenson, 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 Sillanpaa, South Africa
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.
K. Copley and friends, Australia
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.
Chrissy Galt, France
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 Heylen, 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 Gouw, The Netherlands
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 Garrett, UK
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.
Family van Rensburg, South Africa
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.
Aga Borkowska, UK
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 Taffin, France
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.
Patience and Gabriel Semenya, South Africa
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.
Family Petersen, Denmark
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!
Mieke and Ben, The Netherlands
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 Haraldsted, Denmark
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 Seagrief, Australia & UK
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.
Richard and Shirley, South Africa
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.
Family Schrijver, Netherlands
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.
Family Withiel , UK and South Africa
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.
Liz and Carlos Ojeda, USA
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!
Fam. Bastiaansen, The Netherlands
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.
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!!
Elly and Jo, The Netherlands
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.
R. Tailor and friends, UK
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.
Family Engering, The Netherlands
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 Nash, South Africa
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 Fuhrmann, Germany
Thanks so much for a lovely house clean well equipped house! We had a lovely stay!
S. Cloete, South Africa
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.
Mr & Mrs Biedermann, Switserland
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.
Glen & Vivian Clark, South Africa
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.
Mr. Kriek, Ireland
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.
Family van Wijk, Netherlands
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!
Clairé Wiltshire, SA
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.
Karen, John and Ollie, 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 Goodschild, South Africa & UK
Thanks once again for enabling us to have a lovely stay at The Gables – it was so central to everywhere we needed.
Family Bowman, UK
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 Moran, Australia
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 Otto, Germany
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 Chalkney, 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.
Deborah and Richard Lovell, 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!
Family Underwood, UK
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!!!
Liliana & Joao, Angola
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!
Family Ewald, 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.
Family Bromilow, 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.
Cynthia Stapylton – Adkins and friends, South Africa
We had a fabulous time in Hout Bay, the house was superb and it was great doing business with you both.
Family Bevan, UK
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.
Family Patrick, USA
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.
Wilna and Chris Heunis, South Africa
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!
Cindi & Peter, Canada
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.
Family Pitcock , UK and 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!
Family Templeton, South Africa
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!
