We are fortunate enough to have traveled to dozens of countries for both business and pleasure. Without exception, Anita and Gerrie are the best we have ever worked with within the travel industry. If you are searching for someone to help you plan a trip, stop looking! They booked our lodging, arranged for drivers when we needed them, rented our car and had it delivered, planned a five day road trip to Port Elizabeth, arranged a safari, recommended restaurants and places to see and gave us cultural guidance. They rose above the rest for many reasons. They listen. They offer recommendations and options. They make things happen. They fix things if there is a problem. They proactively anticipate potential issues and plan contingencies. And, they smile through it all. These two are not only professionally excellent, they are good people. We met them as clients and left them as treasured friends.
Mike Rosen & Sharon Howard, USA
Worth it! Excellent location with Woolies and Pick and Pay within walking distance, OK Mini Mart across the street, and 13 restaurants within 2 minutes walk. Gorgeous views with the beach 2 minute walk and Chapman’s Peak Drive 2 minute walk. I highly recommend it. Just don’t book it when I’m back in town because this is definitely where I’m staying!
Fabulous situation, stylish yet simply decorated, very well equipped, super clean & extremely professional, nice hosts. Can’t fault it. We’ll definitely be trying to stay at The Gables again.
Family Brandt, Zimbabwe
Fantastic apartment. The pics do not do it justice; the living area is huge and open plan and all furnishings are clean, modern and comfortable. Few mins walk to Hout Bay beach, shops, cafes and restaurants literally on your doorstep. Easy access to road to Cape Point/Boulders Bay/Muizenberg and access in opposite direction to Constantia and Newlands. Fantastic beach at Llandudno less than 10 mins. It’s a great location for exploring Cape Town, city centre around 25/30 mins drive and Table Mountain around 20 mins drive. We absolutely loved it.
Family Campbell, UK
Anita, thank you so much for making our stay memorable, we had a great host and your house is lovely.
N. Ntshangase, South Africa
The pool was brilliant. All the rooms were lovely, spacious and clean. Some good restaurants nearby. Everything was great, it would have been good to have air con downstairs but the fans helped.
Family Ludlow, UK
We had a wonderful stay here. It is modern and very stylish. When we arrived the apartment was even better than what the pictures depicted. The apartment is convenient to the beach and restaurants and we were able to walk everywhere. It was also extremely clean. The hosts were very responsive and check out and check in were a breeze. We spent many mornings having breakfast on the balcony and the day out and about. It was a pleasure to come home to this apartment.
Family Kunaka, South Africa
Great beach house with all amenities you can think of. Anita and Gerrie are wonderful hosts. I can fully recommend their property.
Family Schweier, Germany
Thank you again for your hospitality. We had a wonderful time at The Gables. The place is perfectly located and the kids really enjoyed the pool. Will surely contact you again for our next trip.
Family Montenot, Mauritius
Very well equipped and excellent located holiday home. Spacious enough for 8 people. Everything of daily need in walking distance. Anita and Gerrie are really nice hosts and helped us out with good tips on local events.
Alexander and family, Germany
Lovely house with modern appliances which makes for easy living/keeping clean with a nice outside area. Close proximity to Hoedspruit village and other sights nearby, as well as a Kruger gate.
Family Taylor, South Africa
We have had such a memorable and fabulous time in South Africa – I run out of superlatives to describe our time there. It was a perfect combination of family time with Mike and Sharon, enjoying BushGlam and Shindzela with our friends, driving the Garden Route and spending a few more days with Mike and Sharon. We so enjoyed meeting you and again, appreciate your patience with my multitude of questions. Your knowledge and willingness to share it really helped make our trip possible.
Family Stott, USA
We zijn zeer tevreden over jullie leuke huis. Voorzien van alle gemakken en voldoende keukengerei e.d., prima bedden, speelgoed voor de kleintjes. Kortom we hebben genoten. Van tevoren hebben jullie voor ons ook een aantal zaken geregeld, waardoor het voor ons allemaal gladjes verliep. Denk aan het regelen van de transfer vanaf het vliegveld, de autohuur voor onze volledige vakantie, de boodschappen die jullie voor ons gedaan hebben. Helemaal top!! Dank jullie wel.
Familie Rademaker, NL
Cette maison est magnifique très accueillante et confortable. Nous n hesiterons pas à y retourner lors d un prochain séjour.
Stephanie Robbe, France
We had a lovely stay at the Gables. Very big and open house. Clean and there was everything we needed. Will definitely recommend this place.
Monzelle Klue, South Africa
We had a warm were welcome by the hosts Anita and Gerrie. The property was very spacious, neat and had all the facilities you could imagine. Enough space for all 7 persons in our travelling party. Because of the winter temperatures, the wood burner was superb on the cold winter mornings and nights. Restaurants, petrol station, supermarket are just around the corner, beach is only a walk away. For us it was a good base the explore Cape Town and its surroundings. This house is a good value for money with the superb hosts Anita and Gerrie. Highly recommended!
Gerwin, The Netherlands
House is beautiful, very well presented and well equipped. Garden is a very nice area to relax, unfortunately you can’t see animals through the fence as there is now a big hedge there but this does help to ensure privacy.
Anne and family, UK
This place is everything they say it is and more. It is located in a very safe complex, easy to get to and close to everything in Hout’s Bay. Hosts are quick to respond and flexible.
P. Alderson, The 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!
Family Gimbrère, 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 Levelink and Verduijn, The Netherlands
The house was very nice, with excellent views, and clean.
Lis & Bent, Denmark
Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven in Hoedspruit with us, we loved every minute of our holiday.
Family Meintjes, South Africa
Large open plan family home with wonderful views of Hout Bay. The terrace is well sited and useable in all conditions.
Richard and friends, UK
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 Kessler, Germany
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 Cowell, USA
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 Dallas, South Africa
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 Adams, USA
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.
Melanie & Pat, UK
Absolutely gorgeous property with beautiful furniture! Had an absolutely fantastic time and would definitely recommend this home
A. Leigh, South Africa
Genoten van een heerlijke vakantie in Zuid Afrika mede dankzij de dames van Lobecotours! Wat een verademing om met Gerrie en Anita je vakantie te plannen; het warme en persoonlijke contact, de adviezen, tips en (in ons geval) de persoonlijke begeleiding met verhalen en uitleg over de streek, de gebruiken etc. Onze huurauto stond keurig op ons te wachten na aankomst op de luchthaven, alle rompslomp uit handen genomen en volledig ontzorgd door de dames. Het huis in Houtbay wat we van hen huurden was van alle gemakken voorzien, ruim, schoon, erg mooi ingericht en aan het strand gelegen. De ideale uitvalsbasis om Kaapstad en omstreken te ontdekken. De tweedaagse safari die ze voor ons hadden geregeld was helemaal top en rondde onze vakantie op een prachtige manier af. Gerrie en Anita, nogmaals dank!
Familie de Hommel, NL
Incredible Visit!!! A group of six friends rented BushGlam for five nights. Anita and Gerrie of Lobecotours couldn’t have been more helpful. Any questions (and there were many) were answered promptly. The home was clean, comfortable, safe and within walking distance of restaurants and a grocery store. I’d highly recommend BushGlam as a base for exploring the area.
Robbin & Bill, USA
Thank you very much for the use of your house. It was an absolute pleasure. It is truly one of the most thought through self catering places I have stayed at. Putting little sponge tabs behind the doors and toilet seat takes it to the next level.
Mr&Mrs van Schalkwyk, South Africa
Lobecotours, Gerrie en Anita hebben ons ontzettend geholpen met onze fantastische reis door Zuid Afrika. we hebben onder andere geslapen in de Bushglam in Hoedspruit. Een luxe huis met zwembad. Een fantastische plek, waarvandaan je diverse game drives kan doen, panoramaroute, krugerpark bezoeken en nog veel meer. Een paar jaar geleden ook een huis gehuurd in Houtbay via lobecotours. Ook top geregeld! Anita en Gerrie helpen je vol passie en liefde om je reis onvergetelijk te maken! Lobecotours kan ik je absoluut aanraden!
Family Lembeck, NL
The house, the modern and friendly style, the cleanliness and the professionality of the responsible people. All was perfect for us.
Great place to be. The house is very neat and stylish, the host was very accommodating, she even let us check in earlier, which was just great.
Nkuli, South Africa
The apartment has a great location in Hout Bay, close to the beach as well as many great restaurants. The apartment was clean, modern and everything was as described. Would happily recommend it.
Family of five adults spent a week at The Gables and would highly recommend this property. It was clean, it was spacious, the decor was lovely, the outside area with pool was perfect for relaxing after a day visiting the beautiful surrounding areas and Cape Town. The location was perfect. Walking distance to restaurants, bars and the local harbour. Anita & Gerrie from Lobecotours were extremely welcoming and helped with every query we had. We had a great time at The Gables and we’ll definitely use your services again!
Family Hoogeboom, The Netherlands
My family enjoyed a marvellous two weeks over Christmas and the New Year at Beach House. The property far exceeded our expectations being spacious and very conveniently located. The house is extremely well equipped down even to a Nespresso machine. The deck area is ideal for sunbathing with both an excellent BBQ and plunge pool, whilst the communal pool is a few steps away and we were virtually the only users during our stay. Importantly the pools are spotlessly clean and very regularly maintained. Hout Bay is an excellent base for Cape Town with rapid access to the City, Camps Bay and the Constantia wine lands. We will definitely return! Anita and Gerrie of Lobecotours were charming and brilliant managers. Check in and out was quick and easy. Probably most important when we did have a couple of problems, not of anyone’s making, their response was instantaneous and helpful. I would use them again if looking for this or other properties in the area. Thanks to you both so much for helping us to have a memorable holiday. Best wishes.
Family Chilton, UK
Neat and tidy accommodation, centrally located providing easy access to most of the tourist spots of Cape Town. G. van Sambeek, NL Just got back from Capetown, we stayed in Beach House, Hout Bay. It was a perfect stay. The house was huge, cleans and got everything that we needed. Anita and Gerrie were very generous and helpfull. Other then they have given us the best tips for winehouses, restaurant and hotspots. If you want to go to South-African, go book your trip with Lobecotours. Thanks to them, we had the best family trip!
Family Baldrey, South Africa
Stylish and modern apartment, close to beach, nice restaurants and shopping mall. Hout Bay has a nice local village “feeling”. The flat was ideal for our family of four adults and we truly enjoyed our stay there.
Family Lonka, Finland
Wat een fantastisch huis! Een ruime keuken met alles wat je nodig hebt. Twee slaapkamers en een grote badkamer. Boven een zitje en een enorme slaapkamer met een bijna evengrote badkamer. Bij de slaapkamer is nog een ruim terras met uitzicht op het zwembad. Het huis is ook nog eens zeer smaakvol ingericht. Wifi was goed, wat met 2 pubers een belangrijk iets is.
Family Diepmaat, The Netherlands
Beautiful comfortable home with high end finishes close to town.The townhouse was spotless, bed in master super comfy. All the finishes on this home are high end and in excellent working order. I really enjoyed the decor and looked forward to returning every day. Kitchen is very well stocked with pots and pans, dinner and glassware. On arrival we were presented with a bottle of South African wine, such a lovely touch and much appreciated.
Villa spacieuse, fonctionnelle et ravissante!
This a delightful apartment in a very good location for exploring Cape Town and surrounding areas. We really enjoyed our stay there It can be quite lively in the street outside on some evenings but that all adds to the fun! Anita and Gerrie are very welcoming hosts.
Family Dawton, UK
Lovely home in a great location.
Family Da Silva ,SA
Dag Gerrie en Anita, we hebben zeer genoten van de omgeving en het huis, het was een mooie reis. Bedankt voor jullie gastvrijheid!
Bill, The 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.
Johan and Angelien, Netherlands
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 Visser, 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 Vermaak, South Africa
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.
Family Mbeki, Ukraine
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
Raj and family, Singapore
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 Boe, 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 Lidgley, UK
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!
Family Lennander, USA
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.
Vernon Bekker and friends, South Africa
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.
Family Black, Australia
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
Melissa, South Africa
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!
