                                                            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

                                                            Nice house in a quiet location

                                                            Well appointed air-conditioned house in a secure gated estate. Very quiet with good views to False Bay at Strand and Gordon's Bay. Adjacent to nature reserve and wonderful selection of birds visited the garden. Jeanie and Leon are on site and very helpful should any problems arise. Easy access to Stellenbosch and all the vineyards around. Try the restaurant at Clos Malverne wine estate, Devon Valley Road for their four course wine-pairing lunch, which included six full glasses of superb wine, all for less than £60 for two. You will need a taxi! We will use again for a future visit to Cape Town area. Thank you Martin.
