Property description

Welcome to Big Bay, home to windsurfers, kite surfers and surfers. This stunning top floor apartment, 3rd floor, is situated in a secure complex. The balcony and master bedroom have panoramic views of Robben Island, Table Mountain, Lions head, Robben Island, Devils Peak, stretches of white beaches and the spectacular Atlantic Ocean sunsets.
You are away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet only 15 min drive from it!


We were captivated by this beautiful city and now we feel proud to be able to show others what they are missing. Big Bay is wonderful. You not only have a constant view but it is situated on the edge of a beautiful residential area. Following this is miles and miles of conservation area that quite literally goes on forever. In Spring (Sep) this whole area is one big carpet of flowers and is breathtaking. We loved Camps Bay, Hout Bay and the surrounding areas but when you sit on the balcony and watch the sun set or the flicker of the city lights at night you truly feel you are away from it all in Big Bay. You have the luxury of enjoying the best view in all of the Western Cape.

Out and About: Whether driving into Cape Town or to the Waterfront there is ample to do and eat. A brand new waterfront area has opened on the beach front and has ample restaurants and shops to enjoy. The world famous Spier Wine estate's MOYO restaurant experience has opened its doors on the beach front too. Enjoy a beach extravaganza of board walks and fun right on your doorstep! Further afield there is Canal Walk which has a big casino which incorporates an ice rink, movies, top restaurants and arcade for children. You can also take a boat cruise from the V & A waterfront. There are many different ones-see the whales, the seals, the penguins, Robben Island or just relax on a sunset cruise. Drive to Cape Point, where the Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic Ocean, and climb to the point. Here you are at the tip of Africa!

For adrenaline junkies there is abseiling off Table Mountain, Swimming with the great white sharks, paragliding and hang gliding. You can also fly in an ex-Vietnam US marine corps Huey helicopter which takes you round the coast and straight past the apartment. Just pass Big Bay there is sand surfing amongst the white dunes-an amazing experience. Follow this with quad biking in the bush-a must do! All this within 40 min of your apartment.

A representative will meet you at the apartment when you arrive and leave. A local contact number will be provided should there be any queries-this includes what to do! Any additional requests can be discussed.

Internet can be provided but must be requested before your stay. It is pay-as-you-go system. The wifi is wireless but is not high speed. An initial charge of £15 will provide you with 3GB of data. This is payable on booking. Should you need any additional data this can be purchased yourselves at the local shop,details of which are provided on booking.
Please be aware that the internet speed can drop down at certain times of the day. Unfortunately this is out of our control.
The modem is portable though so can be taken out and about.
Please enquire with us if you would be interested in using wifi whilst on your holiday.

Bloubergstrand is situated opposite Table Bay which allows it to have the best views in the Western Cape. The picture postcard photos are taken all along this beach. It is also one of the top beaches in the world for kite surfing.

A brand new Waterfront area has opened in front of the apartment. (500m away) There are stunning restaurants and cafes right on the beach as well as a multitude of shops. You can fine dine or simply grab a coffee on the decked promenade and watch the sea roll in on the beach. You can walk to it all! Everything you need is right on your doorstep and best of all the views from the apartment are not compromised due to its much higher position.

If you dont feel like driving, a fantastic new bus system has been introduced in Cape Town called 'MY CITI BUS' These busses are wonderful for using to get around both the area and to Cape Town cente. The bus stop is situated just outside to the left of the complex and the stop/route is called F14-Big Bay.

We have used it ourselves and its so slick, easy and very cheap!.

To use this bus system you do need to purchase a special payment card that is 'loaded' with your bus money and you then use this to pay for your journeys. No cash is accepted on the busses. We can provide all the information should you need it.

A world class golf course is 5 minutes down the road-Atlantic Beach golf course along with sand boarding and quad biking.. The wine lands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are roughly a 35 minute drive away.

Other Activities: Sand surfing, quad biking, parachuting

Golf: Atlantic Beach Golf Estate is 2 km from the apartment. The qualifiers for the European Open was held at this golf course. It is spread along the coast and is set amongst a secure residential estate. It too has the views of the sea and Table Mountain.
