  • We had a great time at Liz in Gordon's Bay. She recommended a very nice place where we had a delicious dinner with fresh fish. The room was very nice, clean, cozy and she had prepared some fruit, cereals and yogurt for our breakfast. Liz is really a great host, we felt a bit like at home.

    Jacques2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely fabulous time at this home, spent with close family and friends in celebration of a special birthday. The house exceeded our expectations on all levels and the setting is certainly “parfait”! Thank you Anthony for making our stay extra special with all the personal touches and handy tips.

    Yolanda2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • You won't regret staying here

    Ronell2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay for big groups. Very comfortable. The host is amazing at ensuring that you are well looked after for your stay.

    Yassar2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable living space. So much room to enjoy. Spectacular views and very well equipped. We had a fabulous Braai one night after shopping at shops close to the house. Anthony is a very welcoming and responsive host. The location is perfect as you can pop into Cape Town, Hermanus or wine country for the day and return to this oasis.

    Christine2018-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Tony was a absolutely stunning host, accommodation was exactly a described and actually more. We really want to go back soon. Thanks to you and your wife Tony.

    Leon2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • We would definitely stay here if we were in Gordon's Bay again. Anthony was a great host - available when needed to explain something or offer advice. The view from the house is amazingly gorgeous and we enjoyed every morning's coffee/tea on the deck... and every evening's gorgeous sunset with a glass of wine. :) The house is very spacious and has everything you need. It was great having 5 bedrooms with 5 separate FULL bathrooms (showers AND tubs!). It is a very private house as it sits at the top of the hill and has a beautiful mountain view behind the house and an unbeatable ocean / sunset view off the various front decks. The house has everything you need in the kitchen, large dining room, the living room (TV, stereo sound, etc. - although we never once turned on the TV!), the bathrooms (towels, etc.) and laundry room. We didn't use the pool, but it also has a nice view and seems to be a great dipping option on a hot day. There is a cat or two that comes in and out of the house to eat, but if you don't give them attention, they really are not even noticeable. We enjoyed Daisy's presence & gave her lots of love, however, so she regularly curled up with us in the evenings. Gordon's Bay is a very tranquil place to stay, so it's great for a peaceful, relaxing vacation. There are a few good restaurants, and it's close to the Strand for a nice beach day. If you're not renting a car to get around, Uber is available from the house, but it almost always took 15-20 minutes for an Uber to arrive (that's how peaceful and "up there" on the mountain it is!). It's still a nice place to stay and easy enough to get to Stellenbosch, wine country and Cape Town. Enjoy!

  • Robin was an excellent host, very welcoming, the apartment had everything we needed was very nice to have the garden space in the backyard. Perfect location, amazing stay will definitely come back again on our next trip.

    Hannah2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Robin and Tony are amazing hosts. They are very friendly and welcoming and they really want to make your stay wonderful. The flat is very nice. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen and we had a barbecue with the provided gas grill. There was more provided that we could have imagined: coffee, tea, snacks and cereals... There is a TV with a DVD player. (We got DVDs for one day from "Vee's Video" in Sumerset West that we watched in the flat.) There are also two boogie boards that you can take to the beach if you want to. The big windows make the flat very bright and you have a nice view at Gordon's Bay. There is a very beautiful garden with lots of flowers and bumblebees that you have for your own. We could park our rented car on the well secured property. Robin and Tony give nice advice about nearby Restaurants and weekend markets. Gordon's Bay is very close to the Clarence Drive where we enjoyed beautiful sunsets (to drive there is also nice during day time). The airport is 40 min away and Cape Town is about 45 min. Due to Load Shedding the electricity is sometimes switched off in Cape Town for two hours. Robin informed us about the times and there are torches in the flat that you can use, so don't worry. We would definitely recommend staying at Robin's and Tony's Airbnb. Their hospitality is just incredible.

    Joshua2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Robins apartement! Although we were not lucky with für weather, we could enjoy our meals at the big and covered balcony! The bed was super comfy and the kitchen was well equipped! Robin offered some delicous cookies and some cereals and milk for breakfast. Could not wish for better hosts than Robin and her husband! :)

    Madeleine2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Robin’s place was lovely. Really a delightful place with a stunning bougainvillea and terrace! She had thought of everything including breakfast we felt very lucky and relaxed. Would highly recommend.

    Louise2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The venue (a flat next to the main home of the host) was cosy and neat. We were blessed with some milk, bug spray, mosquito repellant and biscuits which is really thoughtful. Amazing view in the day and starry beneath at night. Was great to sleep with the veranda door to the bedroom open during the hot nights.

In addition, for any travelers who would like to experience the coastal area in and around Gordon's Bay, Percy and Mariette would be ideal hosts to show you the beauty and special natural attractions.

    Situated against the mountain, this cosy & bright studio is 10 minutes walk from Bikini Beach and Gordons Bay Harbour, close to restaurants and shops. Located at the start of the scenic Clarens drive. The panoramic views over Falsebay will make you fall in love with this little town. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Secure gated parking available on the premises.
  • Clean room, kind hosts & fabulous views! We will return.

    Patrick2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • 5 stars: Super location. Breathtaking view over the bay to Table Mountain. Very comfortable king size bed. Clean. Private and quiet. Own access. Safe. Milk and oat crunchies a thoughtful gesture. No shortage of basic supplies. Friendly, considerate hosts. 4 stars: Basic/dated kitchen and bathroom facilities, but functional and clean. Access via one flight of outside stairs which could make carrying heavy/large luggage difficult. Quite hot in summer (no air con), but there is a fan, and the beautiful, calm-water beaches are a stone's throw away. Would highly recommend. It will not disappoint.

    Nikki2020-01-06T00:00:00Z

    My place is close to supermarkets like Woolworths or Spar and also Gordon's Bay Beach, Strand or the Whale Route for your leisure activities. You’ll love my place because of the sea view, its tranquility, the garden, and its central location close to Cape Town Airport and the Winelands. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. My place is very good for couples as well as solo adventurers and - if you don’t mind sharing one open space with everyone - even for small families (with kids).
    While you stay at my place you can use the garden with all the furniture and of course the pool (due to the ongoing drought the pool might not be fully usable when you arrive). You are most welcome to use the Weber grill for a braai/BBQ. My dogs also love to play with you but leave you alone if you don’t want that.
    Very close to my place you have the possibility to do a lot of different leisure activities. There are surfing and kite surfing places in Strand (next city), parachute gliding from the view point on Sir Lowrie’s Pass. You can also play bowls in Gordons' Bay, take a wonderful walk on the walk way next to the beach up to the harbour wall, where you find other activities such as fishing. There are also many trails in the mountains around my house but I would not recommend this right now because of the recent fire. The view point of Sir Lowrie’s Pass is a wonderful attraction 8 minutes away right at the start of a stunning circle route through the mountains via Franschhoek and Stellenbosch and back to Gordon’s Bay. Especially Franschhoek and Stellenbosch are South Africa’s unofficial wine and dine capitals. You can find a lot of places to stop by, have lunch or dinner, take a walk and enjoy the absolutely fantastic views. A highlight: right next to the beach you can find a worldwide renowned second hand book shop and easily spend a couple of hours browsing through all sorts of books. Less than 1km away a new supermarket will open very soon where you can do your shopping. However, if you prefer not to cook you will find a couple of restaurants nearby: Ooskus Visserye for best fish and chips, Tallas for seafood and pizza and Zest for a European cuisine. A very lovely coffee shop is situated at the entrance of Gordon’s Bay when coming from the N2. Mountain Streams Nursery offers a variety of breakfasts and cakes along side local plants. You’re literally sitting in a garden while eating.
  • We had a wonderful 2 weeks at this lovely property. Sarita was the perfect hostess, unobtrusive but helpful with advice on sights etc. She even received a courier parcel for us, and gave us a bottle of bubbly for New Year’s Eve! A car is necessary and although it’s street parking, very safe at the top of a long cul-de-sac in a well protected neighborhood. Being high up the mountain there is a lovely view both upwards (with walking opportunities) and down towards Somerset Bay and, meters away, there are views of False Bay, Table Mountain and more.

    Norman2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sarita's place is perfect for a base in Gordon's Bay. The kitchen and bedroom are open plan with the toilet and shower behind a partition wall. The kitchen has great amenities with a small stove/oven and plenty of plates and pans etc. The bed was very comfy and the whole place was sparkling clean. There is also a small outdoor area with table and grass for use by the apartment. The check in process was very smooth too. We would definitely recommend this place to others!

    Amy2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely host, place is nice and sparkling clean. Spectacular views in a nice and quiet area, very private and close to town. Would definitely go again.Highly recommended to all.

  • We had a great stay at Sarita’s place. It is located high up on a mountain and offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding coast and mountains. The bed was very comfortable, there is a kitchen with essential appliances for cooking, and the place was immaculate. There is also a very friendly dog to keep you company too! We would gladly return for another stay.

    Luxurious Studio Apartment with panoramic sea views in Gordons Bay.
    The apartment has the finishes and elements of a high end hotel room (like airconditioning, a Nespresso machine, dimmable LED lighting, electronic safe, unlimited high speed wifi and satellite TV), while also offering guests more space than a hotel room and a fully equipped kitchen (with microwave, 2 plate induction hob, extractor fan and medium sized fridge/freezer).
    The apartment is located in Mountainside, a quiet residential suburb of Gordons Bay, with panoramic sea views. The entrance to the Danie Miller hiking trail is less than 1 km away. The apartment offers a convenient base to explore the area (for example, Clarence Drive between Gordons Bay and Rooiels - which was voted the most beautiful coastal drive in the world!).
  • Nothing short of 10/10! The rental is perfect in every aspect; with the decor and facilities inside being amazing, a fantastic view on the rear patio and helpful hosts who were always on hand. Anton was kind enough to welcome us in and was only a phone call away when we needed which was much appreciated. The location is just superb, we would definitely recommend Gordon's Bay to anyone. All in all a fantastic trip made better by this perfect place to stay and wonderful hosts.

Ultimate guide to whale watching in Cape Town "Amazing. Isn’t nature just great" Types of whales you’re likely to spot in South Africa The southern right whale, humpback whale and the Bryde’s whale are the most commonly sighted on South Africa’s Western Cape coast. Best places for whale watching in Cape Town Well, clearly the Atlantic Seaboard is getting its fair share of sightings, but according to the official Cape Town Tourism website, these are the places to be. False Bay: If you don’t feel like travelling far, there are a few great whale-watching spots near the city of Cape Town. Opt for the higher vantage points along the False Bay coastline such as Cape Point, Boyes Drive between St James and Kalk Bay, and Clarence Drive between Gordon’s Bay and Rooi Els. Hermanus: Rated as one of the top 12 whale-watching locations in the world by the World Wildlife Fund, Hermanus offers some fine land-based viewing opportunities because the whales often come within metres of the shoreline. Cape Agulhus: Up to 50 pairs of southern right cows and calves have been known to frolic in the ocean near the southernmost tip of Africa. The Whale Trail, a five-day hike along the cliffs, dunes, and beaches, gives you a wonderful opportunity to view these mighty mammals and their offspring. Best time for whale watching Along the Cape south coast, June to November is a good time, although some will already be as far north as KwaZulu-Natal. Peak calving season is July and August, but whales can be seen through September and October." Stony Point Penguin Colony | Betty’s Bay "Stony Point Penguin ColonyStony Point Penguin Colony is one of only two mainland colonies of African Penguin and is reached by the most beautiful coastal route called Clarence Drive. The mountains hug the coast line and photographic opportunities abound. A fence has been erected around the penguin colony to keep local leopard and other predators at bay. Bank Cormorant also breed here, alongside the more common Crowned, Cape and White-breasted Cormorants. Directions: From Cape Town, take the N2 to Somerset West. Turn right onto the R44 and follow to Betty’s Bay. To reach Stony Point, take the sign posted right turn towards the coast, just before you enter Betty’s Bay."

The sea is often calm and the sandy beach is suitable for children. There are rock pools and cormorants and seals in the bay. The harbour and the village are within walking distance. The house sleeps four people, but only one bedroom is fully enclosed; the rest of the house is open plan. Sam lives upstairs and will be there to welcome you on your arrival.
    My place is right next to the sea, with direct beach access. It is light and airy with a large garden, shaded by five ancient milkwood trees. There is a fully equipped kitchen and three comfortable beds, one of which is super king size. I have no dish washer, but there is a large and efficient washing machine, which is useful for guests with children. The house is within walking distance from the village, where you will find some great eateries and a really good new coffee shop, open from early to late. The harbour is just around d the bend. Sam lives in a separate apartment upstairs and is a practical and amiable co- host.
    Gordons Bay is a quiet seaside village. In winter the beaches are almost empty on weekdays and one can walk, sit, read and meditate undisturbed (except by the weather). During the summer holidays the main beach can be crowded but the beach below my house is not. The harbour is beautiful and hosts two good seafood restaurants. My favorite coffee shop (recently opened) is Coffee on the Go, in the village near the shell shop. Talla's steak house is also good value. If you want a massage or a beauty treatment, try Senses in The Old Cape Mall. As to exploring the region, there is too much to say. Penguins in Betty's Bay, wine farms in the Hottentots Holland Basin and the Overberg, hot springs in Caledon ....
  • The location is super and you can park right in front - there is a small private beach out the back door and a much larger public one only 4 minutes away. Turn right going out the front door and you are a few minutes from the harbour where we found the Thirsty Oyster and liked it so much we went back a second time. Turn left and you re a few minutes from the beach along with many places to eat. The flat has 3 beds, great mattresses and plenty of towels, a nice rain shower and its kid friendly with a small table, chairs and lots of playthings. We made breakfast each morning, everything was there, Sue is a super host and Sam who takes care of the place is a great guy. We did not BBQ as it was windy - plan to do so next time as this is a place you will definitely want to come back to. Nice to sit outside and chill with a glass of wine and look out at the bay. Recommend that you drive out in the direction of Betty's Bay and see the Penguin Colony - much nicer and not as commercial as the one in Simons Town. Overall 5 Stars in my book!

  • Not much can be added to the reviews of others, except to say that Sue and Sam are exceptional hosts who go out of their way to make you feel that their home is your home for the duration of your stay. That’s what makes the AirBnB experience superior and they exemplify the spirit.

    Peter2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    Angela2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Susan's house is extraordinary: facing the ocean, the view of the bay is breathtaking. The reception, the geographical situation, the proximity of the beach gives an unbeatable quality / price ratio. I highly recommend you.

The place was sparkly clean and communication was good. I would definitely recommend this for a couple that loves the ocean, cause it's a few minutes away from the sea. Also for anyone that just needs a break from the hustle and bustle. Thank you Moses and Jennifer. Our stay was absolutely perfect!

    Gordon's Bay is a picturesque coastal village, nestled at the foot of the Hottentots Holland Mountains and the False Bay Coast. The village is situated only a few minutes away from Somerset West and Strand and only 30 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. The central location of Gordon's Bay will enable you to reach The V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, The wine route of Stellenbosch and travel on the whale route to reach Hermanus in any direction all within an hours drive. A great place to base yourself while exploring the Cape. The beachfront promenade is lined with popular restaurants and pups and you really get a feeling of going back in time when visiting the old village. If you follow the Beach Road through Gordon's Bay past the harbor, you get on to one to the most beautiful coastal drives in the world. The R44 (Clarence Drive) towards Kleinmond and Hermanus which winds along a breathtaking beautiful coastline. Kogelbaai begins behind the mouth of the Steenbras river. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cape where surfing is very attractive. Stop off at the Harold Porter Botanical Garden in Kleinmond and the African penguine Colony at Betty's Bay on your way to Hermanus. The Stellenbosch, Franschoek, Helderberg and Elgin Wine Routes are all within a 40 minutes drive from Gordan's Bay. This is a place that you can partake in many activities, the Golf estates are Internationally acclaimed. The bay is very tranquil and you could hire Kayaks and stand up paddle boards or go on a boat trip from the harbor. If you travel a bit further to Strand and Koggel Baai yo will find great surfing conditions and relatively uncrowded. Oh, I didn't mention that the water is very warm in Fals Bay as this is the Indian Ocean. I could go on and tell you much more, but why not book with us and I can tell you all about it when you are here.

  • Nathans place in full value in a stunning location with sea and mountain views from your room. The place was comfortable and clean. The area has all you need with good restaurants and shopping facilities. The free under cover parking is an added bonus. Nathan is a good helpful host and comunictes well. The area is viby with an Ocean Basket seafood restaurant. I will definitely book Nathans place again.

  • The place is as advertised; clean, efficient and comfortable. They provided a flat sheet on the bed at my request so that I would not burn up under the heavy, white duvet. My friend was able to sleep comfortably on the couch because they provided a soft for fury blanket for the sleeper-couch. He was hugging it as if it was Linus's blanket from Charlie Brown. He never let the sleeper out. The aircon was cooling but the drain line was clogged seemingly whic caused it to leak quite a bit over the breakfast bar counter. I just asked for large towels as needed and Carlien was there within minutes with a fresh one until the plumber could be scheduled later. The made a a charcoal grill available. We felt really safe and secure because we not only had our own gate entrance to the carport but the studio had its own alarm system that was easily activated and deactivated when you came and left. We had our own entrance to the pool and deck area. They created he space so that you really had your own privacy. The 3 dogs were beautiful and friendly and just as welcoming. They became your best frienda even if you didnt know hat you could feed them. 'Read the short manual provided. It tells you everything you meed to know'. To bad i did read it till checkout. The location is 400m from a Kwikstop store on one corner and the other end of the street was a Spar with butcher and all. Then the Somerset Mall is just a 2 Km further away just off the N2. You will find everything there. Oh yeah...very close to beach. If not so windy we would have spent more than 15 minutes there. Once the drain for the aircon is fixed, this becomes a place I want to stay again. I can't sleep without air moving so Carlien quickly provided a high speed fan when I.mentioned that the ceiling fan and the main light were on the same switch. My Amazon special plug adapters US to ZA did not work. I mentioned it to Carlien and she grab one from her son. And texted me several locations were I could buy some that would work. If you just mentioned anything to Jan&Carlien, they quickly responded with more than you needed. I highly recommended this accommodation for your next visit.

    Terrence2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • The studio was clean, comfortable and well appointed exactly as in the pictures. It is located in a safe neighborhood and is well situated to enjoy what the Strand and surrounding area has to offer. I loved my Nespresso coffee in the mornings. Thank you Carlien for your hospitality.

    Martinette2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place is nice and cozy, safe. The hosts were also amazing. Its proximity to the strand beach is also an icing on top.

    Mandy2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We were greeted super nice. Large bright clean room. Everything you need. To reach supermarket in 5 minutes on foot, it is about 15 minutes to the beach. We liked it very much, again at any time.

    Christine2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Jan was very accommodating, we arrived before the check in time and the place was as described. Unfortunately the pool was not working as we would have loved to chill by the pool side on the Friday when we arrived. The kitchenette was super functional and had basic necessities... Thanks for a great stay

    Lala2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Better than expected it is extremely clean and felt just like a home away from home. They accommodated us in the best ways possible. As a young couple wanting a little getaway it was really the best time. We wished that we didn't have to return home and could just remain their. I will definitely be returning. And I'll need to book far in advance.once more people find out just how amazing it is ,it will be fully booked permanently.
