From Whalehaven’s broad front windows, your uninterrupted view takes in the street cafés, the station, the harbour and its busy boats, the beautiful big bay and the mountains in the distance. In the village below, there are quirky little shops selling antiques and ice creams, artisanal bread and original art. Buy fresh fish at the harbour market when the boats come in, or savour the daily catch in superb local restaurants. Kalk Bay’s cobbled lanes climb to the top of the village, where paths take you up the mountain. From there, look down to the beaches and tidal pools and with luck, see a whale waving its tail....From Whalehaven’s broad front windows, your uninterrupted view takes in the street cafés, the station, the harbour and its busy boats, the beautiful big bay and the mountains in the distance.

Great apartment, situated opposite the train station, above shops and restaurants, on the Main Street in Kalk Bay. We loved it and enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the main thoroughfare. The views of the harbour were spectacular and we saw whales in the bay....More

About the neighbourhood
The Cape is a feast. If it's beaches for sunbathing, swimming and surfing you're after, Cape Town has more than a dozen to choose from. If wine farms offering tastings or packed picnics is appealing, the magnificent Cape wine region is waiting to tempt you. If you're looking for spectacular mountain walks or just a ride to the top, Table Mountain is on your doorstep. Or it could be whale-watching or marveling at acres of spring flowers or playing golf on a different course every day that makes a holiday worthwhile. Does eating at world-class restaurants for less than you'd expect work for you? Or mooching through antique shops and indulging at country food markets? The Cape has it all.
How to get there
We will send you detailed directions from the Cape Town airport and will be here to meet you when you arrive, unless otherwise arranged. Parking is on the street right outside the apartment
