“Stunning Views, Charming Vintage House, Spacious Design with something for everyone”
Reviewed 22 April 2019 for a stay in April 2019

Located in St James, the beach is less than a 5 minute walk, and dozens of cafes are at your door step in St James, Hout Bay & Muizenberg. You can also easily drive to the penguins at Simon's Town or to Cape Point - great location for those who want to see the best of Cape Town.

The actual property is on the road that is beach front. It looks out to the ocean and you can hear the beach from each of the rooms of the house. You get to see both stunning sun sets and sun rises.

We stayed in the 3.5 bedroom house (one bedroom is off a kids playroom which also has 2 beds in it), the house also has 3 bathrooms, 1 of which has a sizeable bath.

The house is well looked after, it is clearly well maintained by the owner as it looks like they regularly use it themselves - it has many modern ammeneties like a fully stocked braai & espresso coffee machine, as well as a fully furnished kitchen. These little touches make it feel like you are at home. The furniture is well chosen and the house is great for large groups / families.

The kitchen is a really nice feature of this house, it has a double oven (great for entertaining), with a gas stove top, along with 2 double sinks, full laundry and plenty of cutlery & plates.

Whilst the high roomed ceilings give the feeling of quite a lot of space, it is really the front & back yard that shine in this property. You can't get a scale for the size of the front yard from the photos, but it is more than sufficient for having a large family gathering, or young kids to run around. There is a trampoline, monkey bars and kids toys available which made our stay the even more enjoyable. Out the back there is a rock climbing wall, a small pirates ship and a secret garden. All of these features made it feel like home.

The house is also nice and high up from the road so you feel quite secure, behind both an electric fence, then a security fence before you get to the front door. You share the front gate with a couple of neighbours so it makes the property the even more secure.

“Fantastic location, gorgeous house - loved it!”
Reviewed 8 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

My family loved this house. Across the road from a wonderful tidal pool that the kids loved. It's a spacious, relaxed and comfortable home, with everything we needed! Hosts are friendly and helpful - We will definitely be back!
Thank you!
