About Cape Portfolios

Cape Portfolios is one of the most established villa rental companies in South Africa having been founded in 2001 by husband and wife team Simon and Helena Kneel, who moved to Cape Town from their native England and Sweden. The company now employs close to 30 people, all of whom are dedicated to providing a world class holiday experience to our clients staying in Cape Portfolios’ hand-picked and personally inspected selection of over 200 villas and apartments. Our goal is to make your stay in a Cape Portfolios holiday property as enjoyable and relaxing as possible through our range of additional services such as private catering and fridge stocking, child-care and beauty treatments in the villas. We also offer a wide selection of tourism services including car hire and airport transfers, restaurant recommendations, wine tours, white shark diving, township tours, helicopter trips and luxury safaris. Unlike most of our competitors renting out holiday properties in Cape Town, we are a fully registered and qualified Estate Agency that is regulated and audited by the Estate Agency Affairs Board of South Africa. This provides our clients and property owners with a considerable degree of comfort and reassurance in an industry in which sadly many other holiday rental operators choose not to register or qualify as estate agents, or to hold their clients' funds in audited Trust accounts, all of which are strict legal requirements for anyone renting out properties as an agent in this country . We are also the only specialist villa rental business operating from prime beachfront offices in Camps Bay, one of the most popular holiday destinations in Cape Town. Cape Portfolios also operates a comprehensive property management service for homeowners, which we set up and have been growing since 2002, and we therefore take full responsibility for the management, maintenance and rental of many of our properties.
