Excellent home for a large group staying on the far side of cape town. Views are amazing from sunrise to sunset. The pool is long and somewhat warm depending upon season. The area is windy at times in the morning and evening. Perfect base from which to stage trips for shark cage divining, wineries, and the garden route. In addition to Juanita the property manager there is a caretaker to deal with any issues that may arise such as refiling the wood fuel pellets for the water heater. The elevator was nonfunctional during our stay. There is a lot of glass in this place which allows ocean views from almost every single bedroom (4 top floor, 2 middle floor, and a bonus room on the pool level/ground floor) except one.
True luxury accommodation in Gordons Bay! This echo friendly home blew my mind. Thanks #gordonsbaystay
Beautiful, modern, fully-equipped Villa with stunning views. Situated not far from Gordon's Bay centre, where you have access to the beach, restaurants, and shops.
The swimming pool is also heated, which is such a big bonus.
Whether relaxing on the deck, watching the waves crash to shore, enjoying easy self-catering in the modern dining room, relaxing in the ocean-facing living room, or waking up each morning to incredible ocean views, this villa has it all.
My wife and I stayed for two weeks at the property, and the experience was absolutely fantastic. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
The house itself is a brilliant modern design, recently completed, and built on a slope overlooking False Bay. It’s a terrific location, with easy access to Cape Town, Table Mountain, and no end of truly fantastic wineries. Many of the rooms boast panoramic, floor-to-ceiling windows, with open balconies that allow a perfect view of the bay. We were there at the wrong time of year for whale watching, but could sit on the main balcony eating breakfast while watching dolphins at play in the water.
We were in one of the three master bedrooms, with our own large balcony, and views across to Simon’s Town and the Cape Peninsula. It is hard to describe the experience of waking to that view, with the sun coming up and Table Mountain in the distance. Or the closing of the day, when the lights of Simon’s Town twinkle along the shore and the waters gently lap on the beaches below. Incredibly relaxing! Sitting in the ten meter swimming pool in the evening, a glass of wine in hand, was lovely. The length of the pool makes it idea for exercise, though I was never that keen...
On a practical level, everything you could need in the house is provided, from pots and pans and cups and plates, through to towels and bed linen. The house is equipped with secure parking, state-of-the-art security, and high-end televisions and audio. All you need to do is purchase food, and there is excellent shopping at a large mall at Somerset West, just a fifteen minute drive away, and many good grocery and liquor stores even closer by.
The drive to Gordon’s Bay takes only ten minutes or so, and we walked there in about 30 minutes on a couple of occasions. There’s a lovely beach, and several good local restaurants serving some excellent fish. I’d particularly recommend Zest as a great blend of value and quality. If you want something extra special, there are a huge number of wineries that can be reached by car in under an hour, and many within twenty minutes or so. Some of the restaurants at these wineries are truly world-class, and easily match the UK's best.
This would be a fantastic location for a group of friends or family, or for a corporate meeting. We will return for sure.
Just had a fabulous stay at 22 Protea Drive. Fabulous to wake up to stunning views of False Bay from your bed. Great pool for swimming laps and nice and warm. House is very well equipped and has everything you need or maybe didn’t even know you needed!
Photos don’t really do it justice.
