Cape Town International
Beach Front, Gordon's Bay
Beach Front, Gordon's Bay
Main Beach, Gordon's Bay
The house is an easy five minute walk from Main Beach which is spacious, clean and inviting, offering safe swimming for the whole family along with shops, cafes and restaurants. A 15 minute stroll along the beach takes you to Harbour Island which has many more restaurants and bars along with a nice hotel. Bikini Beach, a ten minute walk away in the opposite direction, is a blue flag beach.
Cape Town International airport is a 40 minute easy drive. We recommend hiring a car as Cape Town has so many attractions and beautiful things to see and do.
Gordon's Bay is a quiet beachside town which offers shops, restaurants, lovely beaches and views. Somerset Mall is a vast indoor shopping centre open every day of the week and you can get nearly everything there.
Some of Cape Town's top 10 restaurants can be found within a twenty minute radius along with famous South African wine farms.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We have bought the house as our retirement home - many years away but good to have a plan! Andre works for an engineering company and Sally is the administrator for an international church. We live in the Middle East and can't wait to live somewhere with greenery and scenery! We try to visit Cape Town at least twice a year as we have family living there. Also we want to enjoy the house as this will be our forever home.
Why the Owner Chose Gordons Bay: Gordon's Bay is a quiet seaside town which offers clean, clear water and safe beaches yet it is located only 40 minutes from Cape Town central. We feel it offers the best of both worlds; the laid back lifestyle South Africa is renown for but with the convenience of a major city nearby. The wine lands with it's stunning scenery, wine and food is another huge attraction. There are several golf courses nearby and good shopping centres - what more could we ask for!!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: We believe our house is one of the oldest in Gordon's Bay, approximately 100 years old, which is old by South African standards! It has loads of character; beams, original terra cotta floor tiles and an unusual Mediterranean feel. We fell in love with it and hope you will too!
The location was important to us and this house has two advantages. One is being able to walk to the beach in less than five minutes yet the house is located in a quiet street, with little through traffic, avoiding the hussle and bussle everyday life - the perfect combination we believe.
