Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Fish Hoek - Cape-x-ta-sea Apartment

Stylishly furnished and comfortable 2 bedroom apartment.

Once you enter the apartment you are met by an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area. The lounge has ample seating, consisting of a plush corner couch unit and a couple of captain chairs. The TV has satellite channels and there is also a DVD player available. The antique wooden trunk that is used as a coffee table has an interesting story, you will notice scratch mark on the top, this was caused by a leopard trying to get to food that the 'original' owner had stored inside!! The kitchen is well equipped and has a counter dinning area. Leading on from the kitchen down the passage you come to the kids bedroom. This bedroom consists of 2 single beds, and sufficient cupboard storage. The bedding is top quality and cozy. The first bathroom has a bath, shower and toilet. Towels are provided.

The en-suite consists of a shower & toilet. Top quality linen are provided in all the bedrooms and bathrooms. The apartment has access to a paved patio area in a natural garden. The indigenous garden attracts many birds and it is very special to wake up to the sounds of birds chirping. A sensational quality of this home is its view of False Bay, it is breath taking. Whales, dolphins, seals and various fish species are easily seen from this beautiful vantage point. The Bay is constantly busy with yachts, Naval vessels, fishing boats and different water sports, it is interesting and enjoyable to sit and watch.

About Michelle Ubsdell, Property Manager

The owner of the house is Benita Lenard, but the property is managed by Michelle Ubsdell. Benita bought the house in 2013, as it is an ideal family home for their annual visits. The Lenard family have lived abroad for many years and are currently living in Abu Dhabi. They enjoy travelling, but their hearts remain in Cape Town and they enjoy the convenience of their house in Fish Hoek.

Michelle Ubsdell, Property Manager purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Michelle Ubsdell, Property Manager chose Fish Hoek

This home is well planned and comfortable. It is conveniently positioned in Sunny Cove a quaint nook on the outskirts of Fish Hoek. Sunny Cove train station is a stones throw away from the house, a few hundred meters down the road & then down a flight of stairs, cross the Main road and you at the train station and the beach. Fish Hoek is a friendly town situated on the Cape Peninsula, it hosts shops, restaurants and pubs. There are many water sport opportunities, two golf courses 10 minutes from the house, and the surrounding mountains offer many other out door activities, that may be enjoyed by residents and tourists alike. Fish Hoek has a safe family friendly beach, but remember the South African sun is harsh so suncream and hats are advisable to protect you & your family.

What makes this apartment unique

First & foremost the best features of Cape-x-ta-sea are the views. The panoramic views are unobstructed and you are able to see right across False Bay. The morning sunrises are absolutely beautiful and in the evenings the glittering lights of the neighbouring towns is magical. The surrounding mountains at the rear of the house offer a unique opportunity to guest, they are able to use the hiking paths and enjoy the wonderful 'great outdoors' this beautiful part of the Cape has to offer, on foot or with mountain bikes.

Thank you Benita for out truly amazing stay at your beautiful home. We couldn't have asked for a better location to celebrate one of our dearest and closets friends hen party's. The entertainment area is spacious, comfortable with Panoramic views of the bay. The furnishing were new yet relaxed and made us feel at home. The indoor / outdoor pool was the cherry on the top.

The bedrooms were large enough to accommodate all the girls plus there very large over night bags. One of the best moments was going to sleep with sound of the ocean and waking up to fresh smells of the sea air. We really felt like it was a holiday get away.

We will definitely recommend your home away from home and we will definitely be back.

Thank you

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Benita, I loved my stay at the Cape-X-Ta-Sea Apartment. The long lease was a blessing and my time spent there was beyond wonderful. I woke every morning to gorgeous sun rises and experienced magical moon filled nights with nothing but the ocean as my "back yard". This is a perfect place to stay at when you want to leave your busy world behind and merely immerse yourself in the beauty of False Bay. The large, airy, bright rooms are a delight and your every convenience is catered for. Keep your eyes on the bay for schools of dolphin and from August through to October you are sure to enjoy many hours of whale watching (in fact, at times you can even hear them blow, that is how close they get!). The apartment is centrally located to a variety of restaurants, pubs, beaches and hiking trails so one is never short of entertainment. I look forward to my next stay with great excitement. All-in-all a brilliant "home away from home".
