About Us

CapeHolidays: A Short Term Rental Agency in Cape Town


We are all about offering exceptional experiences; from the moment you inquire to the day you have to return home.

Our company, which was established in 2009, is constantly evolving to ensure both guests and homeowners receive 5-star service. We market and manage between 30 and 40 properties. We always trim and select the best properties (and owners sharing our objectives); our aim is not to be the biggest, but rather the best, by offering a personalised experience.

We dedicate a big part of our business to the homeowners who have given us sole mandates. We work alongside them to ensure the properties are respected and continually improved so guests can enjoy this 5-star experience. We believe a big factor in having an exceptional home is having happy homeowners, and therefore we allow them to give us their lifestyle rules so we can adapt our marketing strategy accordingly.

We have created a team that works for you because we understand the power of 5 out of 5-star reviews. Elmarie Horak (who started the business) looks after the finances, home experiences, and guest bookings. Nandi Horak works with guest bookings, tracking payments, and marketing. Johan Horak focuses on development, marketing, and advertising. Aureol Lara leads the team of experience creators that helps guests along the Southern Peninsula, with Janene Booth assisting her in creating exceptional experiences. Kevin Bester is the experience creator along the Atlantic Seaboard and Central Cape Town.

CapeHolidays, where we value experience.
