  • 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.

    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
  • Great spot in a very nice neighbourhood, view is simply amazing and the space is suprizingly big, had a wonderful stay.

    Anna2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The location was great. The personal touches was unexpected, but really appreciated. We loved that for a week that it was home, away from home. 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!

    Tamsyn2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Shantell2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely space, felt very homie with a great view of the mountain. Loved that the beach was just a few minutes walk from the apartment. Thanks Florence :)

    This house is built directly above a secluded beach in Gordon's Bay. It has five majestic milkwood trees and an indigenous garden. 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!

    Richard2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • A spacious place with a lovely outdoor area and timeless view. Very comfortable bed, great shower.

    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.

    Gordons Bay, Western Cape, South Africa

    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.

  • 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.

  • We just had an amazing 6 night stay in Anton and Elsie’s luxury apartment as an end to a three week holiday in SA. Anton and Elsie were the perfect hosts in every way and our stay in their gorgeous apartment was absolutely amazing. Every little detail was thought through and there was absolutely nothing missing. We will definitely recommend them and their apartment to others and hope to stay there again next we visit Gordon’s Bay.

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."

    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.

  • What can I say..perfect just perfect! Hansie and Fiennee went the extra mile in making our stay feel like home from home. They have lived in Gordon’s Bay for many years and their intense knowledge of the area made certain that we got to see and do things the normal tourist wouldn’t...from restaurants to scenic routes. The studio is set on the side of a mountain so excellent views of the harbour and False Bay and the Mountains behind. The studio itself is as I have already said..like home from home with all modern facilities. the studio is cleaned daily by Meena who also will launder your clothes....a true find and we will hopefully be back...especially is Hansie is making Paella!!!

  • Pristine, private and dreamy. The pictures on the site don't do this gem of a place enough justice! From the thoughtful little surprises all over the place to the sound of the trickling koi pond when lying in bed. The place is perfectly equipped for self-catering in every way! Chilling by the private pool on a hot day was just the cherry on the cake. We enjoyed being able to walk down to the nearby restaurants. Hansie and Fienie's place is well on par with upmarket hotels! Thank you to you both for making our stay so special. We will definitely be back and highly recommend your place. Kaylin and Warren 🙂

    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.

Her home is just like the description. Beautiful decorated room, nice bedding, towels, kitchen and living areas.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • One of the most welcoming hosts! We planned to stay only one night but liked the place so much that we decided to stay longer. The room was clean and comfortable, with a private bathroom and a very nice terrace with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. Good common spaces and fully equipped kitchen we really enjoyed. The communication and the check in was efficient and Benny was very helpful. We highly recommend to stay at Benny's

  • Where do I even start talking about this beautiful home! Everything in h about it is just superb! Communication was a breeze and prompt. Michelle who welcomed us with the staff were just amazing, they even helped with our luggage and pack the fridge for us. They had chocolates and sparkling for us, so thoughtful. Don’t get me started on the views! Breathtaking. We didn’t enjoy the rooftop because of bad weather but it is such a beautiful space. What really worked for us is the daily cleaning service they have, that was a lovely cherry on top. Thank you so much for everything, we will be back for sure!

  • 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.

The place offers everything a couple/visitors could want with private space and the spectacular view just beneath the beach. Everything is within driving distance and the town offers visitors a detached view from the hassles of big cities where you can relax and Joyce even offered us her tips about the local area including the place to have the best ice cream and cheesecake​.
