It's a question that we often get asked "What exactly do we do at BACK IN TOWN?" So we decided to show you! We recently hosted a fabulous and exclusive dinner party at one of our favourite Villas in Cape Town, Hamilton House, a beautiful 7-bedroom villa in the affluent, wind protected area of Fresnaye, on the Atlantic Seaboard. We arranged this evening to showcase a small aspect of what we do and to create a platform where we could meet our guests and have the opportunity for them to get to know us better and experience first hand the type of service standards we consistently provide to our clients.
