About Steven Slothouwer

Dear guest,

The idea with villa Chimanimani is to give you like a 5 star holiday experience. In the previous years when we rented out our villa, we had a return rate of 85% of our previous guests. We always enjoyed it and tried our utmost to fulfill the wishes of our guests.

The last couple of years we stopped our rental and lived in the villa ourselves. But after our marriage last May, we have decided to live somewhere else and restart the rentals. We are looking forward to welcome you and hopefully fulfill your dream holiday.

Steven Slothouwer purchased this villa in 2004

Very Exclusive Upmarket Self Catering Villa with a pristine garden
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Well furnished & equipped. Good pool & outside areas. Comfortable rooms with lots of storage.

  • 5 of 5

9 adults and a toddler spent an excellent Christmas here. We also had other family in the area who we often entertained. Well laid out kitchen and lots of fridges made this easy.

Steven, our friendly host, was there for our arrival and visited throughout the fortnight to see that things were going well. He catered for all our needs. The local ladies who cleaned, washed up and did the housework (including the washing and ironing!!!) were fantastic.

We would definitely return.

A Delightful Holiday Home - Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Chimanimani for four days in late November for a family reunion and we could not recommend it more. The house is delightful, and there was plenty of space for four couples. The outside area is great with separate lounging and eating areas (including a BBQ area), and the pool was warm and crystal clear. Steven, the owner of the property, and his wife are great hosts and we arrived to a well stocked (complimentary) bar fridge. The two housekeeper ladies are excellent and could not do enough to make sure that we had the perfect stay.

If you are looking for a house for up to five couples which is within easy striking distance of the beach, Cape Town and the wine country (and only 30 minutes drive from the airport) you should certainly consider this property.

A GREAT choice in Cape Town

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased. The home is large, clean, secure and tastefully decorated, somewhat out of town in a quiet, upscale neighborhood. It is well appointed and there was wine and beer waiting for us. Steven, the owner, is attentive and accommodating, as is his staff. Make sure to take his recommendations for winery tours and restaurants, they are spot on. The only negative is we had to leave. We can recommend this home unconditionally.
