Highcliffe House is located in a premium location in the tourist gem of Gordons Bay and provides breathtaking views across the Bay and along the coast to Gordons Bay and Strand. We stayed in the Riesling Suite (two bedrooms) with the main bedroom and lounge having unimpeded views across a vista of land and ocean. At night it is like viewing a field of gems and diamonds sparkling into the distance. The accommodation is very comfortable with quality beds, furniture, bathrooms and kitchen. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could wish for. Unlike many of the places we have stayed, Highcliffe makes available lots of cupboard space in the kitchen and wardrobe space in the bedrooms. There are a lot of nice touches in the bathrooms with quality hand soap, Lux body wash and Flex shampoo and conditioner. ..and there is more - quality cleaning services are provided. Jim and Jane are fantastic hosts who make your stay very comfortable. They are a ready source of information for tourists - such as wine farms and craft breweries to visit, restaurants where you can get a tasty meal or fine dining and scenic drives that delight. This should be your first choice for accommodation in Gordons Bay (or Strand for that matter). We have looked at what is available, stayed in a number of the self-catering apartments and believe that this is among the best. We will definitely stay again - in fact we have!…
This was our third visit to Highcliffe House. We were staying in the 2 bedroom "Riesling" apartment. Highcliffe House is an excellent base for all kinds of activities in the Western Cape: winery tours, golfing, beaches, excursions, Cape Town etc. The apartments are well maintained, completely furnished (comfortable beds) and very clean with daily maid service. Needless to say, there is secure private parking and WLAN/TV worked perfectly. Stunning views of False Bay and Helderberg. Our visit has been truly memorable once again and we would love to return in the near future. Last not least - Jane and Jim are great hosts. They are very professional, friendly, hospitable and make you feel very welcome. Thank you, Jane and Jim!
I think the best comment I can make about this is that it was just like staying with old friends, such was the welcome afforded me. My cousin and I had the ground floor apartment which opened out on one side to a private area with a table and seating, and on the other onto the main patio and pool area. The apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable, although to be honest we spend so much time chatting to the hosts that the apartment was used for little more than sleeping! Highly recommended!
Great view - comfortable apartment. Spotless with all that we could want in terms of catering etc. Plenty blankets and heaters. sadly we never got to sit in the garden but that was equipped with gas braai and garden chairs.
Good location on the hillside with nice views across the bay to the Cape peninsula. The rooms are well furnished and the kitchen is full of all the utensils that will be required. The pool is a little small but adequate for cooling down.
