Our host has thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. It's truly a home away from home. Would definitely stay when we are next in Gordon's Bay.

We needed a property for 12 family members in Cape Town for a wedding and Wind Rose suited us perfectly. The stand out features include the remarkable view offered in the living areas and six (of seven) bedrooms. It is, in every sense, breath-taking; large crashing waves with Robben Island and Table Mountain both in view. Two large living areas were very lovely(one tv and one for photography and talking). Two large garages were also useful. The kitchen was very well equipped (great cooker, fridge, washing machine etc) and really easy to use. The bedrooms were very well appointed as were the bathrooms. The dining area was most impressive (in keeping with the house) and yet like everything in the house, easy to look after. The beaches all wonderful for walks and photographs. Very helpful to have On the Rocks restaurant next door with cake shop near also. The Bayside shopping centre provides the wonderful Checkers supermarket - also a dentist surgery (they saved the day with an emergency tooth extraction) , chemist, florist, wine store... The location is great and easy to drive to and from the centre of Cape Town and yet also escape across country. I cannot praise the staff highly enough. Property manager Emma is excellent as is the wonderful housekeeper Connie whom we loved and was so, so helpful and great fun also. We were here in Winter month, so are unable to report on the little swimming pool but it looked nice. All my dealings with the owners were very cordial and efficient. One or two automatic HomeAway emails were a bit distracting... but other than this, Wind Rose is the most wonderful house we have every stayed in and as a family we have been roaming the world for 22 years. This combines homeliness and luxury, practicality with art works, comfort with efficiency of use. I cannot praise it highly enough. Thanks for making it SUCH a memorable holiday.
