Vast Views, Wonderful Walks and Beautiful Beaches

Shell's Place is a charming Cape Cod house designed with space, comfort and luxury in mind.

The house is set high up on Elsies Peak overlooking the ocean, mountains and Simonstown. The panoramic view includes the ever-changing antics of the sea and birdlife, the surfers as well as the navy ships and sail-boats parading by.

The building extends over three levels with your host living in a completely separate unit taking up the lowest level. The holiday atmosphere pervades as soon as you enter Shell's Place with it's glass-walled entrance which functions well for bird and view gazing. The décor is elegantly-casual with the exquisite open-plan living area blending seamlessly with a spacious outdoor deck. The whole house is bright and airy with glorious sea and mountain views from the array of large windows throughout.

The kitchen is nicely sized and is well equipped with all you would need for self-catering. A bedroom, on the same level as the living area, offers two single beds with a shower, toilet and sink en-suite. One of the highlights of Shell's Place is the upstairs master bedroom with it's Victorian-style bathtub in the dormer window overlooking the view. The master bedroom is nicely proportioned and also has a shower, toilet and sink en-suite.

Shell's Place borders a section of the Table Mountain National Park. A path through the natural fynbos garden leads out the back gate and onto the glorious Elsies Peak hiking trail. On a clear day you can see both the Indian and the Atlantic Oceans, the Hottentot Holland Mountain Range across False Bay and the layout of mountains from Cape Point to Table Mountain. While walking the easy-going path, take the time to notice the rich diversity of plants and birdlife.

From Shell's Place you will find yourself spoilt by a selection of beautiful white sandy beaches dotted with large granite boulders and tidal pools. Being on the warmer Indian Ocean, snorkeling and swimming (sometimes with penguins) are popular activities. Directly below Shell's Place is the intimate Glencairn Beach. It is popular with families due to the safety of the tidal pool while devoid of the crowds that flock to the nearby Fishhoek Beach.

Ideally situated, halfway between Fishhoek and Simonstown, our guests have easy access to shops, restaurants, four esteemed golf-courses and the interesting sights of the South Peninsula.

Whether it's surfing, shark-cage diving, scuba, mountain biking / hiking, horse riding, fine wining and dining you prefer, it's all here. Cape Point (Cape of Good Hope), Boulders Beach (penguin colony), Wine Routes, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Hout Bay and more, are all in close proximity.
