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.

                                          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

                                          Tranquil and spacious bay view place

                                          4 of 5
                                          Nicely tucked away under the trees this is a place where we have been staying several times already over the past few years. It has wonderful views over the bay from the terrace at the upper floor. Though the interior decoration needs an update, it contains all you will need during your stay. The friendly ardener Christie keeps both the garden and the (small) pool in good shape, and may occasionally carry out necessary maintanance. We will be going again next winter.
