Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Gordons Bay, South Africa, Your Home Away From Home

Located in The Western Cape province of South Africa, Gordons Bay is a town that is able to trace its heritage as far back as the 18th century. Your Gordons Bay holidays may well reveal that this settlement was named after a Dutch/Scottish explorer called Robert Jacob Gordon. There is a good selection of self catering villas in the area and many of these will have views of the Hottentots-Holland Mountains on one side, and the gorgeous sea on the other.

Things to Do on Holiday in Gordons Bay, South Africa

On your Gordons Bay holidays, it is best to head towards the Old Harbour for the most attractions to enjoy. Here you will find a perfect beach to relax on and there should also be numerous watersports to get involved in. Your on holiday now, so there really is no excuse to get involved. The area is surrounded by some truly idyllic mountains and these provide ideal hiking opportunities and a chance to catch some South African flora and fauna in its natural habitat. These mountains are also where you will find the Steenbras Dam. 

Places to Visit on Holiday in Gordons Bay, South Africa

Whilst on your Gordons Bay holidays you really must grab at the chance to visit Table Mountain National Park. This is home to two of the best tourist attractions in all of Africa: the awesome Table Mountain itself and the most southerly point of the continent - The Cape of Good Hope. Apart from the often unique wildlife that is protected through the establishment of this park, there are a number of other attractions to fill your time. The Table Mountain Cableway is an absolute godsend in sparing you from a particularly gruelling ascent to the top of the mountain. Do find the time for this as the views of Cape Town from the top are well worth it. Boulders Beach is another popular destination and this is where you can actually catch sight of a colony of penguins.

                                                                5 of 5
                                                                We cannot fault this apartment. The owners, Karin and Norbert, are totally delightful, friendly without being intrusive, and are extremely hospitable. We felt wholly at ease with them and confident that if we ever were to require advice and help in an emergency (we didn’t!), they would be there to assist us in whatever way they could. We left them at the end of our stay feeling we were leaving old friends; something we have neither expected nor experienced from any previous hosts around the world. The apartment is essentially a large studio apartment. The large bedroom can be closed off from the large lounge and kitchen area by good black-out curtains. The en suite is off the bedroom and has a large shower cubicle with reliable hot water. This is a well-equipped and spacious apartment, with everything you might need to cater for yourself and relax after a hard day sightseeing, either inside and outside. It was also good to have free wi-fi access. Surprisingly, not all apartments, even today, offer this without charge, or have it at all. Outside, the garden offers areas to sit in sun or shade, mostly laid to gravel and pathways with large ‘feature’ cacti and ‘Mediterranean’ vegetation. It receives sunshine for most of the day in one part or another, from mid-morning onwards. The area in which the apartment is situated is very quiet, secure and safe. There are magnificent views from the garden across False Bay to Table Mountain and the Cape peninsula, with a backdrop provided by the range of craggy hills which lie close by across the road. It is very convenient for the main supermarkets, the best of which is a 5-10 minute drive away. Most of all, however, all the main places on interest - vineyards, smaller historic towns, the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Town itself and, of course, Table Mountain - all lie within a 100 km or so drive, well within day trip distance. The region possesses superb scenery, and the historic centres of Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are most attractive and interesting to visit. We left the apartment on our final morning most reluctantly, but all good things must come to an end, even perfect ones!

                                                                We have a lovely stay at Villa Lucca. The view from the villa is magnificent, day & night!!!. 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.
