Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The Windrose is everything you could wish for - it is beautiful, spacious, well equipped and comfortable. It was perfect for our family group with plenty space to enjoy our break together and every one of us would love to come back some day.

Breathtaking Views, Comfortable, Unforgetable

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful!! It is spacious and tastefully decorated just as the picture shows. It can accommodate a lot of people since the flow of the house is great and the facilities are of excellent quality. The property was clean upon arrival. The view from the Master bedroom is magnificent and the linens are of high quality. The owner and property manager were easy to work with and they will go out of their way to assist you. You have a full view of Table Mountain, the sun set. We turned the lights off at night inside and watch the ocean danced under a full moon. The weather was not great when we were there, but it did not bother us. We knew that it might be cold so that is why we have chosen this house. We ate at On The Rocks restaurant two doors down from the house as well as Ons Huisie which is within walking distance of the house. Both are great restaurants. We took a long walk on the beach and felt very safe. Easy to find grocery stores in the area.

I would love to go back one day since it was the perfect spot for us finding a home away from home to visit with our South African siblings and mother of 85years old. I recommend this property 100% .

Pleasant and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

So, we arrived!

Upon arrival, everything was in place and setup for our stay.

We were greeted by Emma, the property manager, and given a full run down of the extent of the house as well as what can be found in and around the area. After a brief and friendly conversation, we were left to enjoy the first of many beautiful sunsets.

What was most enjoyable and pleasant, was the peacefulness of the surroundings regardless of the popularity of the beautiful beach front.

Everything needed was close by and easily accessible.

Will definitely be visiting again.

Many thanks to Virginia and Emma

An Unforgettable Experience

  • 5 of 5

The description of this house is exactly what you get. It is not too good to be true. A spacious, clean, well appointed and decorated, seaside villa with the ocean right at your window. We had 11 adult guests stay comfortably. The location has restaurants, a shopping center, grocery store, and ATM nearby. It's also not too far away from Cape Town central that traveling is unreasonable (around 20-30min depending on traffic but can be longer during rush hour). It's also on the radar for Uber so getting a lift to and from can be easy and less than $20USD. We also enjoyed being there during the down season for tourism which was reasonable in terms of weather (50s-60s F for the American perspective) and ideal in terms of the lack of crowds. The owner, property manager, and house cleaners could not have been anymore kind, flexible, attentive, and professional. It made for an unforgettable set of memories, fantastic views, perfect sunsets, fireside chats (we used the outdoor grill too), home cooked meals, and restful nights.

Bloubergstrand has a long white sandy beach on the Atlantic ocean, with a few rocky outcrops where black mussels are found. The water is cold due to the cold Benguela Current but the beach is popular with surfers. The bay on the west side of Bloubergstrand, known as 'Big Bay' has become a very popular kite surfing spot due to the constant trade winds bringing a 1-3m surf for a majority of the year. Big Bay Beach is also well known for the ease with which White Mussels (a species of the family Donax) can be extracted from the sand by a process locally known as 'jiving'.

Other Activities: Kite-surfing
