Gordon's Bay, Western Cape
Highcliffe House is an upmarket guest house, owned and managed by Jane & Jim Yeomans who have travelled extensively. It is ideally located on the mountainside overlooking Gordon's Bay, with breathtaking sea views across False Bay to Table Mountain and round to the mountains of the Helderberg. Gordon's Bay, known by many as the jewel of the Western Cape, has recently been designated as the start of the Whale Coast Route, further enhancing its claim as the number one base for visiting all of the attractions of the Western Cape, without big city hustle and bustle, and pricing !

We offer three unique self-contained apartments : the 1 bedroom Merlot and Pinotage Suites, and the 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom Riesling Suite. Each suite is spacious, and stylishly furnished to a very high standard, with double en-suite bedrooms, fully e...

About the neighbourhood
Gordon's Bay is a picturesque coastal village, often called the 'jewel of the Western Cape' and still one of the best kept secrets in the area. With safe sandy white beaches, including the Blue Flag Bikini Beach, two harbours on False Bay, Gordon's Bay is also a boating and fisherman's paradise.

This quaint seaside village has bars and restaurants to suit all tastes, a 9 hole golfcourse right in the village, bowls, horse riding as well as a number of hiking trails and walking routes. It is the start of the famous 'Whale Coast Route' which follows the spectacular Faure Marine Drive round the coast to Hermanus, and in July to December the Southern Right whales can be seen in False Bay, along with dolphins and sharks - shark cage diving is available nearby, an...

How to get there
Airport: Cape Town International: 25.0 km
Railway: Strand or Somerset West: 10.0 km
Ferry: Cape Town: 45.0 km
From Cape Town International airport, follow the N2 motorway towards Somerset West.. Continue along the N2 past the Somerset Mall shopping centre on the right, Somerset West on the left and through Strand (approx. 20 kms). Just before Sir Lowry's Pass, turn right at the traffic light, signposted to Gordon's Bay and Klienmont (R44). Continue along this road (Sir Lowry's Pass road) until just BEFORE the T-Junction at the end, and turn left into Boundary Road (also called Grens Weg). If you are on the road that goes up a hill and turns right with the sea on the right, you have missed the turning to Boundary Road, and are heading to Rooi Els. You will need to turn round at the first opportunity and go back and turn into Boundary Road. Drive up the hill - Boundary Roa... more
