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.

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.

The Table Mountain Cableway is an absolute godsend in sparing you from a particularly gruelling ascent to the top of the mountain.

                                            An excellent property only close to the beach.

                                            5 of 5
                                            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Watt Nott. The property is extremely well equipped with everything you could possible require. In the event only 5 people were able to stay in the house, so there was ample room. We might have struggled though if all beds had been occupied as access to the roof terrace meant going through one of the double bedrooms. The pool was a great attraction, but unseasonably high winds left it with rather a lot of debris to clear out each morning from the nearby trees. Besides the roof terrace, there is a lovely garden and well sheltered courtyard in which to unwind and enjoy a glass of wine - or two. Close to shops and supermarkets, in-house catering was a breeze. Plenty of places nearby to eat out too. Access in and out of Cape Town is easy, and only 35 mins to/from the Airport. For a family holiday base, this is the ideal spot.

                                            Superb property

                                            5 of 5
                                            The property is exactly as shown in the photos. We found it hard to tear ourselves away from the stunning views over the harbour from the patios. We loved the drive along the stunning R44 coastal road with its beautiful beaches. The friendly owners and manager went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect in every way.

                                            Great Holiday in Gordon's Bay

                                            4 of 5
                                            The house is fantastic and very well equipped. The views are stunning and Gordon's Bay is a great fun place as a base to explore the Southern Cape. The agent was very responsive and helpful. The only issue we had is that as business people the broadband was very inadequate which caused us some stress along the way. The cleaner was very pleasant and efficient and the owners instructions ver helpful. If I was certain about the internet connection I would not hesitate to rent the house again. Ken Symons
