Fantastic stay, excellent location with stunning views. Very well appointed and good value for money. I will certainly go back!
What a GEM in Gordon's Bay! I stayed for 2 nights this past weekend and I feel completely refreshed.
The house is extremely spacious, with elegant modern furnishings. It offers all the modern conveniences you may wish for in a seaside holiday home. Fully equipped kitchen, outside braai with magnificent views of False Bay and the Helderberg, three comfortable double rooms, large open-plan living area with long dining table to feast at, free wifi and endless entertainment on Netflix. The beach and harbour is a convenient 5 minute stroll from the house, but as it is located one street up from Beach road, it is also far enough away from any passing traffic and busyness.
I always saw Gordon's Bay as a place you drive through on way to Hermanus, but after this weekend I've definitely changed my mind! It is well worth a stop over to recharge batteries, as a weekend breakaway or for a family on holiday. The location is ideal to serve as a home-base to explore the Cape Whale Coast, Cape Town and the Winelands, yet also provides a quiet sea-side village atmosphere that makes you feel you're away from it all.
The room was so comfy, I didn't want to leave my bed. It was like sleeping in a nest of soft feathers! But eventually I dragged myself out and joined the locals on Saturday at the Thirsty Oyster in the harbour for delicious seafood and to watch a rugby game. I then returned to my weekend home's front patio to read and enjoy a sundowner with sea view.
It was most definitely a memorable and tranquil Retreat On the Bay - highly, highly recommended!
We stayed here in August 2017. The property is lovely and spacious, with nice decor and comfy beds! The views out over the bay are amazing.
It was conveniently located for trips to see the Penguins over at Boulders, to go up the cable car at Table Mountain, and wine tasting on the Wine Tram at Franschhoek.
