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.

                                              Ideal sea view apartment with own spacious terrace

                                              5 of 5
                                              I travelled to Gordon's Bay on my own in March 2017 to visit my ill mother and was fortunate to have stayed at oceanviewapartments.co.za/1-bedroom-penthouse-luxury-apartment/ The apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean, full of light and had superb elevated sea views. The private outdoor terrace was larger than I'd expected with plenty of space for table & chairs and the sun loungers provided. A portable bbq and large sun umbrella were also available. The apartment also felt incredibly secure - especially important for women travelling alone - and came with lock-up / garage parking too. All in all I wanted for nothing and I wouldn't hesitate recommending the accommodation to anyone, whether for business or leisure. It was great to meet the owners too - they struck a perfect balance between allowing me privacy yet also being there in time of need. During my 11-night stay I happened to find myself in a bit of a pickle late one night and despite it being in the early hours of the morning, Adam and Marcia extended gracious assistance without hint of hesitation or annoyance, which was truly beyond the call of duty. Thank you Adam and Marcia for taking such great care of me. Look forward to meeting again!

                                              Although only two of us, we really enjoyed the spaciousness of this well equipped five bedroom property. Large garden separate to pool area and attended to on daily basis. It was a delight to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine. From upstairs breathtaking views of the sea/mountains as the sun goes down. We did not go into Cape Town as we were staying there before flying home but lots of other places to visit - Bettys Bay (a must to see the penguins), Hermanus and the wine growing areas of Stellenbosch and Franshhoek. Overall a good find at a reasonable price.

                                              Spacious Villa With Wonderful Views

                                              5 of 5
                                              The villa was perfect for the start of our holiday in South Africa. Our party was made up of three mature couples. The booking process was very straight forward with excellent communications with Daphne the agent who manages the property. She greeted us on arrival and showed us the villa. Throughout our stay she was always easily contactable for advice if needed. The villa was perfect. The lounge area and kitchen dining area provide loads of space for people to sit together or to find a quiet corner. The villa is very well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The terrace and pool area offers a lovely place to eat, take a dip and enjoy the views. The bedrooms are very comfortable with three of them opening onto a huge upper terrace again with amazing views across False Bay towards Table Mountain. It is a pity there is no furniture on the upper terrace to sit and enjoy the stunning views. The villa is just a short distance from Gordon's Bay with its beautiful beach and many restaurants. We tried quite a few and would certainly recommend Zest as a must to visit. We were delighted with the villa and all it and the area had to offer us during our stay. Thank you Daphne for all the help and advice.
