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.

                                                                                                    4 of 5

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

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    A lovely property well located for both Cape Town and the Cape Winelands, (about a 50 min drive to each), and is situated on a quiet street about a 10 minute walk to the seafront where there are a few restaurants. The Thirsty Oyster is a little further, and near the harbour and is to be recommended for seafood and atmosphere. A 30 minute drive west along the coast is Betty's Bay where you will find the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens where you can enjoy a pleasant lunch and one of only 3 mainland colonies of African Penguins, much more extensive and less touristy than Boulders Beach. The property is well looked after and has all the necessary equipment for an enjoyable holiday. There is ample outside space to relax, including a balcony where you can view the sunset over Gordons Bay and the Cape Peninsula. The pool is well kept and well located for sunbathing and privacy. The owners who are offsite were very efficient and helpful in all our dealings. There is a local manager just a few minutes drive away should you require any help. The only downside is the lack of air conditioning, but that is reflected in the price, and there are plenty of efficient fans throughout. Would definitely recommend the property to friends and relatives.
