Review by John James (Bristol)

A delightful stay in a lovely house. Linda and TJ and Anna took full advantage of the pool and many games were played on the pool table – competition was fierce. We very much appreciate the way you looked after us Greg. We have certainly had a super holiday. Margaret, Linda and John. Anna, Phil and TJ. Bristol, South-west England.

On behalf of the family, I would like to once again commend you on Acorn Tree, we had a wonderful stay, a wonderful wedding and having the whole family together was very special and you in a position to provide us with the accommodation made for a perfect time.

Hi Greg.

Thanks very much.

We so enjoyed our stay at Acorn Tree and had a great week. It was like a home away from home - spacious, really well-equipped and just lovely to come back to each evening. It was super being based in Newlands, convenient for everything and also very nostalgic for us. I don't know when we're likely to be back in Cape Town, but will be in touch when we do as we'd love to stay at Acorn Tree again.

Also just to mention that Mavis was lovely and keeps everything spotless.

Thanks again - just realised we forgot to write in the visitors book - sorry, you're very welcome to put the e-mail in.

Kind regards

From the Visitors Book 2007 & 2008

Benest, France.

We had an amazing time in Cape Town. The house was just perfect for our needs and I’m glad you’re happy with the way we left it. Apologise for not putting anything in the visitors’ book but we had to leave so early in the morning that I forgot!

Dear Greg,
Thank you for finding the booster drink. We would appreciate it very much if you could keep it in the garage and Rob can contact you when he returns next year (he says that he is coming back!) I hope that Jenny and John Brand supply you with banking details so that you can return the deposit to them.

Thank you again for making our stay so enjoyable.
Regards, Vera and Rob Marshall.
