“Spacious House with magnificent views” Magnificent views over the ocean to the majestic mountains in the distance is the sight that greets you from just about every aspect of this lovely home. The accommodation is very spacious and comfortable.The four bedrooms offer privacy when needed and the open plan kitchen/dining area and lounge is perfect for socializing and relaxing and of course gazing over the ocean with a very good chance of spotting seals,dolphins and even whales. The outdoor entertainment area has a barbecue and you can splash around in the pool watching the sun set.
Cape town is a mere 35 minute drive by car and just over an hour on the train,with the train station a 5 minute walk from the house.A shuttle bus to the V & A waterfront is located just outside the railway station. Here you will find trendy bars and restaurants,shopping and street entertainment. Various sea cruises leave from here and recommend one of the sunset cruises which include sparkling wine and wonderful views of Table Mountain as the sun sets.
Simonstown and Kalk Bay about 5 minutes away by car. We recommend the Brass Bell in Kalk Bay and Bertha's in Simonstown two restaurants that offer great food and spectacular views. Boat cruises leave from the harbour area at Simonstown and we can recommend doing the shark cage dive. The wine lands are about an hours drive from the house. We had a superb lunch at Klein Zalze but most vineyards offer good food.Also look out for vineyards that offer free wine tastings. A word of warning, alcohol is not sold in shops in Fishhoek and none sold on a Sunday except in restaurants and bars so you will need to stock up for the weekend.
We suggest you take your own binoculars as they are required as you scan the seas for sea life.
We stayed for 2 weeks and had a mid break service which was most welcome. We did arrive earlier that anticipated but the rental manager was most accommodating and let us in earlier.
Overall a fantastic stay and brilliant venue.
“Delighted” We recently spent a few days in Cape Town for our granddaughter's first birthday and needed to stay somewhere comfortable and convenient to get around. As most of us are aware, booking accommodation online is pretty much like a 'blind date' - you never know what is waiting for you upon arrival. We were delighted with our apartment. The location is perfect, the apartment is comfortable, clean and sunny - it makes you smile when you walk in. It has a lovely braai facility on the balcony with a splendid view. Although the weather was absolutely dreadful we did manage to get in one braai while gazing over the ocean against the backdrop of the twelve apostles and lions head. The apartment contains all the necessary 'essentials' that made our stay extremely comfortable. '
“great house and ideal location with good local shops and facilities” My family stayed in the house for a week in August. It had been recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. We enjoyed it. It was clean and well maintained. The bathroom was great and the quality of the kitchen fittings was excellent. The beds were comfortable and overall it was a great place to stay.
