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.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Gordons Bay, South Africa

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

Boulders Beach is another popular destination and this is where you can actually catch sight of a colony of penguins.

                                                We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Home has amazing views, is very spacious and nicely furnished. We loved the beach and collected lots of cool shells. Gordon's bay is a lovely town, close to the wine farms, great shops and 45 min from Cape Town.

                                                our stay was part of a 3 week holiday touring South Africa the final 10 days being spent at Cardamom House in Gordons Bay. This is a very picturesque and unique house very well equiped and in a wonderful location. the views are superb and sundowners are wonderful on the balcony . Plenty of room and I cannot thing of anything that is missing. Highly recommended with only one drawback. This house is built on a steep slope and can only be accessed by using the many steps. People with limited mobility would have difficulty, in particular the steps down the side of the house are made of rough stone and are uneven making the trip up and down to the beach and local resturant needing care. This is the one and only critisism that can be made. A wonderful house
