Who we are

  1. We are a family of 5, Grenville (dad) works for an International NGO, Georgie (mum) is a teacher, Toby (18), Ollie (16) and Lulu (14) are great kids who are looking forward to new family adventures.

    We have recently returned to our home country, Northern Ireland, after 10 years living overseas in Kenya, Nepal, Singapore, Jordan and Angola. We have enjoyed two exchanges and find it a great a family holiday. We are keen to repeat the experience this summer and hope to travel with our dog, Cosmo a very friendly well trained adult Labradoodle.

    We are sure you will have a fabulous holiday here and we look forward to welcoming you.

    We appreciate the trust that is required for a good house swap experience and promise to look after your home while you are enjoying ours!

  2. We love the outdoors, cycling, water sports, hiking and finding nice quiet restaurants.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Betty's Bay is one hour from Cape Town International Airport and is approached along one of the most scenic coastal roads in the world. The drive out is spectacular! The village itself has a number of small restaurants and the wine lovers will be spoilt for choice with the nearby vineyards and farm cafes offering tasting menus. A few minutes drive from the house you can enjoy more beautiful beaches, or head up into hiking trails of the Kogelberg Nature Reserve and enjoy some fresh water swimming in the Palmiet river. You are one hour away from thermal hot springs and beautiful villages of the South Africa's garden route. Hermanus is 40 minutes away where you can enjoy whale watching and shark cage diving for the more adventurous. Cape Town is 90 minutes away and makes for a great day / weekend break where you can enjoy Table Mountain, the harbour, or see Nelson Mandella's prison cell in Robbin Island. Cape Point and the villages along the coast make for another fabulous day out. You will be spoilt for choice.
