Property's Favourite Review
We stayed in Cape Vermeer the second time. The location, cleanness, interior and especially the friendliness and service is extraordinary. This year we enjoyed the Sea View Suite with its marvellous view over the bay and wonderful sun settings. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is available - from a large king-size bed XL up to modern bathroom with all pleasant accessories and a well-equipped and kitchen. The interior is in excellent condition. (If any further wishes than a completely closed shower.) As last time we savoured the delicious breakfasts "out of the surprise basket" and the attention of the more than friendly team. Richard organised perfectly our golf tee-times and dinner reservations. We booked immediately for next year - which says everything.
