With spectacular views over False Bay, where the ever-changing play of light turns the Atlantic Ocean sapphire blue one moment and emerald green the next, Paradise On the Bay offers flexible accommodation for up to six people. You can choose between two suites, each of which has its own private entrance and a north, sea-facing balcony. Created by its owner to be a ‘home away from home’, Paradise On the Bay is the perfect place to slow down, refresh your senses, completely relax and unwind. The two self-catering suites available - The Sunny Cove Suite and The Fish Hoek Suite - occupy the entire upper floor of a sun drenched, north-facing seaside home with a terraced garden. Each has its own entrance, spectacular sea views, an open-plan kitchenette, dining area, lounge and glass sliding doors that open on to a private, sea-facing balcony. The Blue-Flag beach at Fish Hoek is best known for its soft golden sand and gentle slope. That means sunbathers and determined sea swimmers can happily coexist and it’s a wonderfully safe beach for children to splash about in. It’s also long enough, if you fancy any water sports like surfing, paddling or kayaking, to indulge to your hearts content, while keeping a safe distance from the section of the beach staked out for swimmers and watched over by lifeguards. This glorious beach and all the shopping opportunities in the village beyond it is about a ten-minute stroll away from your suite at Paradise On the Bay. The property perches just above Jager’s Walk; a scenic path that weaves in and out amongst the huge boulders along the oceans edge and provides a direct link between your accommodation and the beach at Fish Hoek. Just think; from bedroom to beach with not a single busy road to cross, no traffic jams to contend with and no Parking Full sign to greet you when you finally get there! You needn’t venture further than your balcony at Paradise On the Bay to hear and see the whales breaching in the bay. At night time, if you leave your windows open, you can often hear what sounds like a mighty ‘roar’ as the Southern Right ‘blows’ just below the surface of the water. Whichever part of the year you choose to visit Paradise On the Bay, the soothing sounds of the sea are constant company. Whether it’s the cry of a distant seagull or the sound of waves gently breaking on the rocks just metres away from your bedroom, it’s a soundscape that will lull you to sleep at night and herald the dawn of a new day.

We recently stayed at Paradise on the bay, had the opportunity to relax, enjoy the sound of the ocean and all the facilities offered by paradise on the bay. Jean made us feel at home and is a gracious host, we were able to enjoy the sun, walks on the beach and refreshing swims all walking distance and will definitely be back soon. The accommodation had everything we needed and some pleasant surprises, top notch.

We stayed at Paradise for Easter with our son. It’s an absolutely beautiful apartment with gorgeous views. The apartment was spotless & beautifully decorated, also thankyou to our host for the fresh milk and fresh towels 😊Parking is right outside, the beach is a lovely walk over the bridge along with he seafront. Stop and have a seat at one of the ‘memory benches’ along the way and enjoy the views, you might even spot a star fish or two in the rock pools😊 Fully recommend the takeaway at the beachfront, their ice cream/soft serve vanilla &chocolate mix was super yummy! Getting up early to watch the sunrise on Fish Hoek beach is well worth it! We loved our stay here and will definitely be back. Garth, Shona & Ross🇬🇧

It’s in a Great location right on the front with footpath access to beach/town. Beds comfy and clean. Spacious but needs some updating especially the bathroom . Balcony needs a repaint. Car park locked space is very tight to get into if you are not an experienced driver.
Host is very friendly and helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paradise on the Bay. The apartment is warm and sunny with everything one would need for a relaxing comfortable break / holiday in beautiful surroundings. The view is spectacular and it’s such a pleasure to walk on The Jagars Walkway along the edge of the ocean to the beach. Jean is good host, explaining things carefully and checked up on us to make sure all was well.
Thank you Jean, for a wonderful, happy stay. It was too short.

Lovely apartment overlooking the bay. Even though it is on a busy street it remains fairly quiet with street side door/windows closed. Short walk along shore path to town and restaurants. Balcony is sunny and has a commanding view of the bay and Fish Hoek beach.

Do not hesitate to stay at this gem!
Everything was perfect. It is located by the Fish Hoek beach, and the sunsets on the balcony are spectacular. Close to shopping and restaurants . The place is big enough for two people, very clean, with Netflix, and lovely, helpful staff.
We will definitely come back!

Paradise on the bay is exactly what the name implies; it’s paradise. The views are amazing ; overlooking Fish Hoek bay and beach. The water is so close every wave can be heard. The accommodation is more than comfortable with a very comfortable king bed and well equipped kitchen.
