About

Set high on the mountain slopes against an unspoilt nature reserve hosting a variety of deer, baboons and mountain leopard, with the beach very close by, this self-catering, Provence-styled guesthouse certainly lives up to its name. The perfect view over Gordons Bay and across the valley and False Bay to Table Mountain beyond offers a spectacular panorama, often highlighted by enthralling sunsets. 

Fronted by an imposing entrance that opens onto a wide driveway with secure parking for up to six cars, the three-level, child-friendly villa provides secluded privacy and peace in spacious, high-ceilinged rooms on the exclusive-use basis of a minimum two-night stay, for at least four guests in two of the bedrooms.

The five carpeted bedrooms, which comfortably accommodate up to ten guests, offer a restful night in queen-size or double beds, each with an en-suite tiled bathroom with Victorian bath, shower and amenities such as a hairdryer, wash sets and towels plus spare razors and toothpaste. All rooms have a tea and coffee set, heaters in winter, fans in summer, candles, torch and a safe for storage of currency or valuables.

In-house perks include free Wi-Fi and DSTV on two flatscreen televisions, as well as a music system and extensive DVD, CD & record collections.

A study with desk and PC is available for catching up on work-related issues, and a set of golf clubs is provided for those keen to enjoy one of the nearby golf courses.

Two family lounges provide a relaxing space for adults and children, one upstairs with a wraparound balcony and the other a large open-plan downstairs lounge with fireplace that leads onto a large split-level terrace looking onto the swimming pool and overlooking the bay, valley and mountains.

The dining room, with its own fireplace, seats 14 guests and is conveniently located next to the spacious, well-planned, fully equipped kitchen that includes an Aga-style gas oven and two fridges.

Guests can linger in the private garden or on the delightful pool terrace nestled against the mountain with tree-shaded seating and wonderful ocean views, and take a dip in the pool, catch the sun or cool off in the very private outdoor shower.

Two barbeque areas – one at the back of the venue and the other on the 50-square-metre roof terrace - offer an al fresco braai experience in true South African style.

Further facilities available on request include collection of guests at the airport, just over half-an-hour’s drive away, as well as transport to local venues such as one of the many wine estates or the plethora of other activities and attractions on offer in the vicinity.

Self-catering may be supplemented by food delivery service on request.

Additional catering can be made available if guests are planning a function while staying at the house, with the venue set up to requirements, and the provision of serving platters and a drinks list, which can include specialist wines, as well as staff for bar, chef and serving duties.

The house is also an excellent venue for dinner parties, hen or bachelor evenings, anniversary and birthday parties, and wedding receptions for up to sixty persons.

Cape Town & Surrounds

Western Cape

About

Cape Town is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With dramatic mountains, a long stretch of Atlantic coastline and a picturesque working harbour, there are few cities in the world to rival “The Fairest Cape”, as explorer Sir Francis Drake described the place in 1580.

The city of Cape Town is regularly voted as one of the best tourist destinations (and cities to live in) in the world – and its Mediterranean climate, superb natural attractions, historic landmarks, fabulous restaurants and fun places to hang out offer all the ingredients for a top holiday destination.

Table Mountain dominates the city’s landscape and Table Mountain National Park is a national treasure and World Heritage Site.

The Cape Floristic Kingdom is known for its incredible botanical heritage and the Table Mountain National Park has more floral species than the British Isles. Stopping to smell the fynbos has an altogether new meaning in this part of the world.

Robben Island is another World Heritage Site worth visiting. Struggle heroes such as Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Ahmed Kathrada and many others were incarcerated here during apartheid and taking the Robben Island Tour is a must on any trip to Cape Town.

The city is loosely divided by Table Mountain into four sections: Cape Town Central, Cape Town South, Cape Town North and Cape Town East.

Cape Town Central incorporates the city centre, the V&A Waterfront, Green Point, Mouille Point, Sea Point, Camps Bay and Hout Bay. There are loads of things on offer in this part of the world, so it’s a good idea to focus on the field of interest/activities that excite you and take it from there.

A trip to the top of Table Mountain is an absolute must (especially if you’ve never done it before). The views on a clear day will give you a clear perspective of the gorgeous city below and you can see as far as Robben Island and beyond.

If history is your thing, there are numerous museums and attractions close to the city centre. The Castle of Good Hope was built between 1666 and 1679 and is the oldest building in South Africa. It is a good place to start your tour of the city, which incorporates historic attractions such as the Bo-Kaap Museum, the District Six Museum, The Company’s Garden, City Hall and the Grand Parade, among many other notable historic attractions.

For shopping and entertainment, the V&A Waterfront is the epicentre of Cape Town and attracts high numbers of international tourists daily. Long Street is a good place to hang out for restaurants, bars and nightlife and Camps Bay is the place to see and be seen around cocktail hour.

The drive along Chapman’s Peak is one of the most scenic drives in the world but you need to do your homework as the route is periodically closed. Mariner’s Wharf in Hout Bay is another great place to visit, with its fun restaurants, great beaches and perfect views.

Cape Town South stretches from Noordhoek to Observatory and incorporates some of Cape Town’s most popular suburbs, including Constantia, Fish Hoek, Rondebosch, Simon’s Town and Muizenberg, to mention just a few.

Constantia is popular for its wonderful restaurants and wine estates and the Constantia Wine Route is a big attraction for foodies and wine-lovers. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens offers hectares of greenery and regular concerts in the warm summer months. There are also various hiking trails on offer.

Take a day trip to Simon’s Town and make sure you visit the statue of Just Nuisance, as well as the scenic Boulders Beach. Noordhoek is a great place for riding horses on the beach and the restaurants are very family friendly. For fresh fish and laid-back vibes, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg are the business. Fish Hoek is popular for seaside activities and antique shops and is a real favourite.

Cape Town North incorporates the Cape Town International Airport, Parow, Milnerton, Durbanville, Table View, as well as Bloubergstrand and Melkbosstrand. The north is a developed business centre that continues to grow rapidly. For chill-out time, Bloubergstrand and Melkbosstrand are popular for walks on the beach and outdoor sports.  Shoppers will enjoy Century City and Canal Walk, and for those who love a tipple or two, The Durbanville Wine Route also falls into the northern region.

Cape Town East is made up of Gordon’s Bay, Somerset West, Strand, Sir Lowry’s Pass, Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Eersterivier, Macassar and Strandfontein. The region is pretty spectacular as the small coastal towns sit below the imposing Hottentots Holland Mountains and there are fantastic beaches such as Bikini Beach, Strand Beach and Kogel Bay. Here you’ll also find the Helderberg Nature Reserve, Wolfgat Nature Reserve and Edith Stephens Wetland Park.

Look out for

Scenic Cape Point with its sheer cliffs, rugged landscapes, fauna, flora and bold ocean views.

A cable-car trip up Table Mountain to get the view of the incredible landscape of the city. If you’ve done the touristy cable-car thing then take one of the many mountain trails.

V&A Waterfront – spend time enjoying all the facilities at the V&A Waterfront, including the abundance of shopping and restaurant venues. For children, The Two Oceans Aquarium is a winner.

The magnificent beaches of Clifton, Muizenberg, Hout Bay, Bloubergstrand. You are spoilt for choice in and around the Mother City.

Historical sites are a must – including Robben Island, the Castle of Good Hope, the District Six Museum and Bo-Kaap.

Long Street by night. Enjoy the friendly fun vibes of this stretch of tarmac as it comes to life when the sun goes down.

While away the hours at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, the green lung of the city. Look out for the schedule of summer concerts.

Visit the Constantia Wine Route for a touch of history and some of the country’s finest wines and restaurants that continually make it onto the best-of lists.

Drive along the southern coastline and visit places such as Noordhoek, Scarborough, Simon’s Town, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg. Stop off at Kalk Bay for fresh fish at the harbour.
