Self-catering holiday rentals in Cape Town and the Garden Route for your home stay

Here is a self-catering holiday that will bring you something new and spectacular each day of your visit, in one of the friendliest, most fascinating countries in the world. You'll know of Cape Town and its astonishing setting beneath Table Mountain. Even if you decide on short breaks to vacation lettings to Cape Town and the Garden Route, a cable-car ride up Table Mountain is top of your list. Go early in the morning, or take a late afternoon ride up the mountain to avoid the crowds. If your breath isn't taken away by the ride up, then wait until you get to the top. Take a walk around; the view across Cape Town, the Cape Peninsula and way beyond is one of the finest anywhere. Book online for a trip to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held prisoner. This is an essential experience, led by former prisoners. You will return to the bright lights of Cape Town itself, with its excellent restaurants on the Waterfront, with a new view of what Nelson Mandela called "the rainbow nation". You are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches. Drive around to Clifton from your vacation rentals, and walk down the cliffs to Cape Town's most exclusive stretches of sand, always sheltered from the wind. Take a bottle of fine Cape wine in the evening to watch the sun set. A longer drive and another day trip is to Cape Point, where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. It's a nature reserve, so watch out for the baboons climbing over your car! On the way you can stop off at the penguin colony at Boulders, near Simon's Town. Just a short walk from your car you'll find you can approach within just a few metres of these African Penguins, an ideal attraction for you and your family. Every spring there is the Cape Town Carnival to experience, a real celebration through the city's streets that all the family can enjoy. Then, to begin your discovery of life beyond Cape Town, plan a trip to the famous vineyards of Stellenbosch and Paarl. You can drive yourself, or go on an organised tour. There are plenty of places to enjoy lunch on the way and the scenery is spectacular. Or you may choose vacation rentals in this area too, the beauty of the mountain ranges will astound you and the beaches of False Bay, with the warm waters of the Indian Ocean on long deserted stretches of white sand will be just a short drive away. All of this is just the beginning. Perhaps choose a second vacation rental further along the Garden Route and give yourself the drive of a lifetime along spectacular roads for your school holidays in Cape Town and the Garden Route. At every turn there is a new adventure waiting for you.

Holiday lettings in Cape Town and the Garden Route for your short break

Imagine yourself waking up to a glorious view of the sea, with the mountains high above you, and a swimming pool waiting for your morning dive? That's easy with our self-catering vacation rentals in Cape Town and the Garden Route. In a holiday house in beautiful Camps Bay, for example, you are just around the mountain from Cape Town itself, with the beach just at the bottom of your road. Or take an atmospheric apartment in the city centre for your short breaks in Cape Town and the Garden Route. This vibrant city will be below you with its fine restaurants and nightly entertainment. Or perhaps you will choose self-catering rentals in the town of Somerset West, quieter than the big city, nestling beneath its very own mountain, and just a few miles from glorious beaches. At the far end of the Garden Route, Plettenberg Bay is the playground of the rich and famous. Your vacation rentals here will be plush, but you'll find them well within the budget of you and your family for your summer holidays in Cape Town and the Garden Route. The weather is guaranteed to be sunny, so you'll find yourself barbecuing fish outside with a glass of cold white wine, with your friends and family around you. Self-catering was never so good.

The best time to enjoy Cape Town and the Garden Route

Christmas on the beach or by your own personal pool in your vacation lettings is something you may never have experienced. In Cape Town and the Garden Route, that's what you'll find in the sunshine of December in the southern hemisphere. This is the perfect time for the school holidays you've always promised your family, and a sunny Christmas that brings you home with a suntan and a huge smile on your face. New Year has always been special in Cape Town itself, and there is a traditional annual parade for you to enjoy with all the family. Many South Africans believe the best time for your vacation rentals in Cape Town and the Garden Route are in spring or autumn. For those who prefer their temperatures a little lower, this is a great time for your holiday rentals. It'll still be warm enough for time on the beach, and if you're renting a car, those Garden Route adventures to the real gems of this area such as Stellenbosch, Paarl and Knysna will be even more of a pleasure. Or, take a look at some of the maps that are easily available, and take a walk around some of the local mountains. The Cape area is world-renowned as the home to many of the plants that you will find at your local garden centre. See them growing wild as you take an easy walk up the marked paths of the mountain known as Lion's Head, just adjacent to Table Mountain itself. Then afterwards stroll down Long Street, famous for its restaurants, and pick out where you will spend the evening. The winter season is cooler and at this time you will find Capetonians living life in their own city without it being filled with tourists. You will find this rugged countryside as it really is, with Africa in every step you take. Find a roaring fire during your tour of the wine route and the welcome will be just as warm. Owners Direct promise you a great holiday, and a safe and secure booking.
