What Our Clients Say

  • Thrilling Three anchor Bay

    This is the second time I have used Mint House for renovating my home; this time a compact and small apartment. Sue’s team worked tirelessly to design a whole new experience which met all my criteria from aesthetics to functionality. It was a team effort between myself and Mint and I love how the apartment now lives and flows. It is such a joy to finally be living in a space that has exceeded my expectations. Sue gave of her time above and beyond to ensure that the finishes were beautiful and carefully selected. The final result? A modern six star “yachty” lifestyle, incorporating European elegance and contemporary luxury with each space carefully dedicated to using every little corner perfectly. I am truly happy in my new home! Thank you Mint.

  • Just wanted to say THANK YOU to you and your incredible team for making dreams come true! After the disappointment of the project being delayed for more than a year due to COVID19, we are absolutely thrilled to have finally managed to complete the bedroom wing renovation. Being able to give our tween girls a fresh, more modern bedroom look and feel, with individual touches and their own en-suite bathrooms, has been heart-warming seeing them using and appreciating their new personal space. Our guests are also lucky enough to enjoy an upgrade to the guestroom and bathroom, so tastefully done.

  • Radiant Rondebosch

    Very true words “the devil is in the detail”. Our beautiful home was just short of that before Sue stepped in to provide the ever important finishing touches that complete the picture. Sue redecorated our main bedroom, guest bathroom and added very important softs and furnishings to our lounge and entertainment areas. It was a 100% turnaround and alowed us to enjoy and then sell our home quickly and successfully. Thank you Sue. No doubt our paths will cross again.”

  • It has been such a pleasure working with you, Sue. You are professional and so intrinsically invested in making sure everything from start to finish on the project was 100%. Your team is top class too, so polite and respectful of our living needs, and their workmanship so neat and tidy. Nothing was too much to ask and just to mention keeping to the estimated timelines and completing the project precisely on time! I would highly recommend Mint to anyone who is thinking of a renovation project, they would not be disappointed!

  • Renovating during covid

    Doing a major renovation is a huge emotional and financial undertaking, one if not done correctly, could have repercussions for a very long time. We made a list of suitable criteria for an interior designer and home renovator. It was essential to find someone we could trust. From the first time we met you, we felt at ease in being guided by your vision for the design and to manage the overall project.Renovating either side of Covid lockdown wasn’t easy, but your lighthearted conversation and organised manner made the process much easier.We still marvel at the finer detail and functionality of our wonderful home. Thank you for exceeding our expectations! Lisa, Dave, Charlotte and Kennedy

  • Rondebosch Revivified

    I am extremely happy with the service that was delivered to me by Mint and will use them over & over again whenever I have the opportunity! Thanks again Sue for making this a home that genuinely reflects who I am!

  • Newlands Renewed

    This was a challenging project given that we brought so many of the materials with us, and that we had such a fixed idea of what the outcome should be. We are very pleased with the final results, the quality of the building work and the overall project management.

  • Finishing Fernwood

    Sue Lloyd-Roberts and the Mint Renovations team came up with new ideas we wouldn't have thought of ourselves, managed the project successfully from start to finish and delivered high quality workmanship and finished product. We are thrilled with our new home and the team was a pleasure to work with.

  • Corporate Class

    Meeting everyone’s demands in an office scenario is never easy, but we are all thrilled with the end result, so much so, the Chairman and trustees wouldn’t mind moving in!"

  • Retirement Enriched

    A very very big thank you from me and my family for the extraordinary effort and spirit of caring that helped make a potentially difficult project one of great joy and creativity ... In a project such as this one where the design is very specialized and tight, (with severe working constraints), everyone was tested and came up trumps!

  • Kenilworth Minimalism

    The whole process with Mint was calm and measured and the results were very much to our satisfaction. Sue's ideas, input and knowledge of products complemented our own particular tastes, whilst her teams are professional and easy to have around one's home.

  • Clifton Contemporary

    With me living in Spain during the renovations to our Cape Town apartment, I was concerned problems would crop up – how wrong I was! The build up to arriving and actually 'seeing' all in place, done and dusted – was amazing. Due to the regular contact we knew what to expect – but to actually see the end result took our breath away! Our expectations were most certainly realized.

  • Claremont Commercial

    Mint's creative use of space and professionalism in completing the alterations with the barest interruptions to our day to day business was a pleasure; the high end finishes, attention to detail and fresh decor 'look' went beyond our expectations – above all, our staff and guests are very happy with their new environment.

  • Mosaic SA Private Sanctuary

    We worked with Sue on a project at Mosaic Private Sanctuary, renovating our Lagoon Lodge and replacing furniture and fabrics for cushions and drapery. Sue ‘pulled rabbits out of her hat’ to get the design concepts together, get orders completed and products on site prior to our launch. Everything was delivered on time and Sue personally came out to make sure everything was placed and styled perfectly, making us very happy clients! Thanks to Sue for all her work!

  • Fresnaye Refreshed

    I have only had wonderful professional engagement with Sue from Mint - she has an inherent ability to understand my needs, my style and my colour scheme. She has the gentle skill of guiding you in the right direction making one believe that you got to the decision alone! Her efficiency in delivering a quality product on time IN Record time is phenomenal.

  • Lagoon Beach Living

    From the moment Mint was awarded the rooms refurbishment of Lagoon Beach Hotel there was action, Sue Lloyd Roberts worked tirelessly to ensure that all aspects were covered. She spent many a long day at the hotel ensuring that colours were correct, furniture was in the right position and that the lighting was perfect. Well done on a great result Sue.

  • Merging Muizenberg

    What a treat it was to have Mint do my ‘one and only’ dream bathroom. A very dated small space was completely transformed into a generous shower/wet room with gorgeous finishes. All tucked behind crisp white glass sliding bedroom cupboard doors. The team worked diligently and neatly and were finished in the specified time. Sue interpreted my brief perfectly and elements of the ocean were cleverly repeated in the texture and color of the finishes, all of which make for a serene space that I love to relax and unwind in.

  • Nourishing Newlands

    The best going-away gift I received when I left PE for Cape Town in March 2011 was a phone number: that of Sue Lloyd-Roberts and her renovation business “Mint”! Sue was generous with her advice and infinite knowledge of Cape Town and its service providers. As a result, now that the dust has settled (literally!) and the paint has dried, I am happily ensconced in a home that I am both proud of and comfortable in.

  • Bon Bon Bergvliet

    Mint did an outstanding job of our kitchen. From designs, 3-D’s and detailed technical drawings to input on colours, tiles, flooring and fittings. This team were great to work with and we finally have our dream kitchen that fits our needs. Critical for us, as we were living in the house with our toddler during the renovation, was that it was completed exactly within the estimated time frame. Three weeks from start to finish. We felt comfortable with all the contractors. The team always left the site tidy and Susan project managed with ease, attention to detail and was always available onsite. Can’t recommend highly enough!
