Bayview is a self-catering, superbly-furnished, crisp and contemporary, fully-equipped private home. Spread out over 3 floors, Bayview consists of a 3 bedroom luxury living space and a spacious one bedroom flatlet. The flatlet is situated on the 1st floor and is possible to rent separately or together with the 3 bedroom apartment. Please note that there is a minimum of three nights per booking.
Our home is located in Suikerbossie Drive, within the most prestigious area of Gordon’s Bay – a sophisticated haven which overlooks the old harbour, Bikini Beach and a Whale lookout point.
Should you visit, you will be intoxicated by stunning views from every room, with panoramic vistas over False Bay. On a clear day you can see Table Mountain and Simons Town in the distance.
The 3 bedroom living area has 1 bedroom with a king size double bed and 2 bedrooms with large twin beds. Each bedroom has air conditioning and is en suite and has large, walk-in cupboards and every room has fabulous sea views. Superbly-appointed interiors rarely look more appealing than this. There is even a private lift, ensuring comfortable and easy access to modern luxury. There is generous living space with two lounges. The main living area is open plan and has a fully-equipped kitchen with modern technistone surfaces, a separate scullery, walk-in pantry, gas cooker/oven, washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher and kettle.

The 2nd lounge flows onto a generous sun deck where you can suntan or braai (barbecue) while overlooking the sea.
This living area has access to a small cliff top rock-pool which borders the Hottentots Holland Mountain Range and is surrounded by indigenous Cape fynbos plants. The view from the rock pool is simply stunning.
On the ground floor are two lock-up garages with access to the house from the inside. The lift operates from the ground floor to the 3 bedroom apartment. There is an automatic security response system in place.
Your holiday couldn’t have a better base than this (we know, because it’s our base too).

Gordon’s Bay overlooks False Bay and is framed by a backdrop of mountains. It is easily reached via a 50 minute drive out of Cape Town on a dual carriageway. It is 35 minutes to the airport, 15 minutes to the winelands and 45 minutes to Hermanus via the most exquisite coastal road, winding through several coastal towns en route. During the Whale season, there is a high chance of spotting these magnificent creatures by the dozens. It is a 50 minute drive to the Hugenot village of Franschhoek via a spectacular drive through nature reserves.
