Kommetjie Hideaways started when Frankie began renting out her own home. She had certain expectations and an understanding of what she wanted from a rental agency that she couldn’t find at the time.
Before long, she had many homes, all through word of mouth. She realised she found great pleasure in preparing homes for; and sharing Kommetjie with her guests. Her goal was to offer a warm and welcoming environment in each home, with small welcoming touches such as fresh flowers.
Since founding Kommetjie Hideaways, Frankie has joined Greeff Properties. She discovered that many of her guests fell in love with Kommetjie and many bought homes in the area that she continues to represent. It is a perfect combination.
Frankie lives in Klein Slangkop, Kommetjie with her husband and two sons, she is the founder and owner of Kommetjie Hideaways as well as a real estate agent for Greeff Properties. Frankie is passionate about Kommetjie and its village lifestyle. Having a degree in graphic design, she has a meticulous eye for detail. It is her deepest desire that Kommetjie Hideaways be a place of peace and prosperity for all who visit, work and play in this beautiful place that she feels so grateful to call home.
Cate also lives in Kommetjie, just behind Long Beach also with her husband and two sons,. Her family are passionate about surfing and the outdoors lifestyle they live in Kommetjie.

“We had a fantastic stay at Albatross Villa. It was exactly what we needed to relax for a few days. The house is well positioned and the pool was perfect to relax in on hot days. The place was as advertised with lots of space and a well equipped kitchen. Frankie’s attention to detail when checking in was exceptional. Communication was great and response times fast. We will definitely be returning!”

Marketing your property for maximum revenue
The holiday rental industry is very competitive locally and internationally. When marketing your property, we are not only competing with other local agencies but other experiences and destinations. Marketing is very important which is why we have comprehensive marketing plans to help you get the most number of bookings possible and in turn the best revenue. Getting the right guests for your home directly is critical to our strategy which includes various approaches including online marketing, direct marketing and public relations.
Online marketing is the most important and effective marketing in today’s world and performing well is crucial. Besides listing on all the large international portals, we have a good social media presence and regularly send out newsletters to our database. We are very proud of our small business and the strides we have made in this competitive industry, being one of the leaders in short term rentals in our area.
We are a small business with a big heart and a large portion of our business is word of mouth and repeat guests.
Although booking guests directly is less expensive, in order to compete in today’s market, your property needs to be fully distributed.
We have partnerships with the leading international distributors and networks to ensure your home reaches as many of the right guests as possible. The industry is constantly changing and becoming more mainstream and accepted which means that guests want to book in the same way they would a hotel. Listing on these channels is more expensive and there are additional fees but the enhanced exposure and increased bookings definitely make up for this. In addition, once a guest has stayed in your home, we are able to then reach them directly.
