“A true paradise”
Reviewed 16 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We just love this "small paradise", absolutely gorgeous little cottage with an incredible view and a peaceful garden with a pool. The cottage is very comfortable and equipped with everything you need. A perfect hideaway for a couple. Vicky is a great host with a sense for the detail. We are looking forward to seeing her again at our next stay in Llandudno

“The name says it all”
Reviewed 15 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

What a wonderful place!!!! From the lovely garden (which transforms you to the Provence)...to the great terrace with a super view.....to the great furnishings (very comfortable bed)....to the large bathroom......to the gracious hosts...and to the charming daily 4 legged visitor Bella....We could not have asked for more!! Llundudno is so safe and quiet as well...Hout Bay with its shops, restaurants, etc. just a few minutes away...and the city only 20 minutes as well. Can't wail to return!

“Absolutely no disappointments!”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in July 2014

We went for a weekend getaway - and what a amazing, cozy, romantic cottage! The interior is 100% up to standard. To sit on the veranda, having coffee and rusks for breakfast with that amazing view and to have sun-downers late afternoon with the gas fireplace (what a pleasure to just lite the fireplace and have no wood-issues - with exactly the same affect) was heaven!
The owner, Vicky, was very, very friendly and available if you need anything. The cottage does not face their house and is far away - 100% privacy. The surroundings and the area are beautiful and clean.
I can definitely recommend Petit Paradis.

“Magic Location and base for exploring the peninsula”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Wonderful upmarket piece of Provence, very comfortable well appointed, self catering cottage. Patio and view exquisite worth staying put. Bedroom and lounge a little smaller than the photo`s indicate. Morning sun takes a little longer to peek over the mountain.
On street parking wasn't an issue. Highly recommended

“Nomen est omen”

Petit Paradis is indeed a little paradise. My wife did not want to leave after three days. Owner Vicky refused to sell us the cottage. Otherwise we would have stil been there. The garden surrounding the romatic cottage have a Garden of Eden feel about them: they are peaceful and beautiful. The view from the terrase is exactly what you hope for when you plan your visit to the Cape. We had very good weather and found it hard to leave the cottage at all. This is truly a great place to stay. It will be very hard to find something better in this accomodation category.

We spend 8 days in this fantastic apartment with a stunning view onto the sea. the bed , kitchen and bathroom is very charmfull .At the terrace you will find a bbq which we used on several occasions while while waiting for the sunset with a bottle of wine . We found everything we needed in the house and Vicky was very helpful helping us to find a car or giving us information where to go , I will definitely go back if I travel to Capetown again .

“Simple, sophisticated, peaceful, private and Perfect!”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Petit Paradise is everything the description says and more. The cottage and garden are secluded and very pretty. It is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, fitted out with absolutely everything you need, and in a perfect location. The beach is a 5 minute walk through a track directly in front of the cottage; it's an easy 20 minute drive to Cape Town (and Table Mountain) and under 2 hours south to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. (Take the spectacular Chapmans Peak Drive along the coast from Hout Bay to get there - you won't be disappointed, the scenery is jaw dropping). Hout Bay shopping, supermarket and restaurants are just 4 km away so even though Llandudno is 100% residential with no commercial properties at all, everything you need is under 10 minutes away.

We also spend one day in wine country - Stellenboch and Franschhoek and enjoyed the very stylish wineries set in gorgeous rolling hills. We plan to go back and visit this area again, but we would of course include a stay at Petit Paradise - it is a fantastic destination in itself.

The owner Vicki was very easy to deal with, very friendly and helpful, and very welcoming. The cottage is on a lower garden terrace in the grounds of Vicki's large and lovely home but was very private both for them and for us - apart from the lovely warm welcome, we literally didn't see her for the week we were there. Vicki also arranged for Aggie, her housekeeper to check on the house for us each day to clean if we wanted it which was a bonus we hadn't expected. Also generously offered was the use of her pool which is just across from the cottage and down several terraced levels from her house and so is secluded from both properties. We didn't use it as we were enjoying the lovely loungers in the garden of the cottage and out doing our own thing but the pool is really beautiful. Being on the larger property meant security was excellent and while we were careful to ensure we locked up when we left, we were not in the least concerned.

We travel all over the globe regularly and during our trips we always plan a week or so of self catering so we can totally relax without having to go out for meals if we don't want to and work completely to our own schedule. Petit Paradise easily rates as one of the nicest places we have rented, despite spending much more in other cities and countries. The visitors books indicate lots of repeat guests, so if you can get a reservation at Petit Paradis, take it - you will not regret it. It will make any visit to Capetown/Llandudno even better.
