This is a home has left memories for our whole family which we will carry in our heart forever.

Thank you for opening you magnificent home for the world to enjoy...!

With much gratitude and appreciation..

Fabulous Beach House with an Extraordinary View !

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular property !

We often rent large houses around the world for family gatherings as we are somewhat scattered around the globe.

This particular property is a stand out !

It was exactly as it was described and photographed ... and perfect for us.

The location of the house ensures a spectacular view of Table Mountain across the bay and its position on the rocks makes for a wonderful soundtrack of the ocean and the waves.

We were a large group that never felt crowded as the living spaces flow very well.

All bedrooms are very high end and stylishly finished, and the views are magnificent.

It is the perfect house for a large group of friends and/or family from a practical standpoint but what makes it a gem is the ability to sit outside, glass of good South African wine in hand, and watch the sun set over the bay beside Table Mountain.

The owner Virginia is delightful and a pleasure to correspond with and the manager and staff that took care of us at the house went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy and had all that we needed.

I would highly recommend the property ..... We simply cannot wait to return !

Thank you Virginia.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We fell in-love with the photos online and felt like it possibly couldn't be as nice in person. We were wrong. This is a fantastic place to stay. We were visiting from America with other relatives and friends coming from Asia--for a wedding in the Stellebosch area. There were 12 of us that stayed at this house full-time and a few others were able to stay a few nights with us as well. We even hosted a smallish dinner for friends and family. It was great to have such a wonderful 'home-base' for this international family vacation. The only downside was we were so busy with activities and trying to see everything we didn't get to spend much time AT this house--and we all regret that a bit. It's just a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the view.

The owner was a breeze to work with. The two-house keepers were amazing and the property manager even went out of her way to meet us late at night to open the house for us.

Would recommend this place to anyone.

Bloubergstrand has a long white sandy beach on the Atlantic ocean, with a few rocky outcrops where black mussels are found. The water is cold due to the cold Benguela Current but the beach is popular with surfers. The bay on the west side of Bloubergstrand, known as 'Big Bay' has become a very popular kite surfing spot due to the constant trade winds bringing a 1-3m surf for a majority of the year. Big Bay Beach is also well known for the ease with which White Mussels (a species of the family Donax) can be extracted from the sand by a process locally known as 'jiving'.

Other Activities: Kite-surfing
