About Charlotte Storm
My name is Charlotte. I adore all animals as they are so uncomplicated ! What you see is what you get ! I am off to university next year to study Vetinary science and who knows where I will end up then...maybe tropical med for animals in S Africa ! I am from Europe and have been smitten by South Africa, and when I came across this idyllic house, on the Garden Route, while holidaying in the Western Cape, I just fell in love with it - I think you will too. This area of stunning natural beauty offers so much in terms of water sports activities, gourmet delights in the amazing award winning restaurants of the winelands, the abundance of nature reserves, and the proximity to City life, make it a number one choice for any holiday maker. Enjoy !
Charlotte Storm purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Charlotte Storm chose Gordons Bay Central
Situated on the Whale Coast in the little coastal village of Gordon's Bay, the family friendly Bikini Beach is one of Cape Town's six Blue Flag Beaches, indicating a high level of water quality, facilities, cleanliness and safety. The house is a one off design within a gated estate, 24 hour manned security. The property sits right on the beach and the beauty of this beach is that it is safe to swim on, in that it has its own little reef - so that the bathers can swim at their leisure. For the fitness enthusiast, there is a swimming pool and a tennis court within the grounds. What is really great about this property is that - within not much more than half an hour, you can be in the centre of Capetown, or sitting in Stellenbosch enjoying the delights of the historic winelands, or on Safari, or at the renowned little town of Hermanus where the whales come to have their young. Just 4 kms for the house visit Blue Rock Cable Waterski - An exciting and thrilling water activity awaits you at Blue Rock Lake. There are so many nature reserves, and hiking trails to explore too. Just lots and lots and lots to do. See for yourself.
What makes this Villa unique
When you open the front door of this house - you are immediately captured by the blue of the sea. The sea sometimes feels like it is actually in the house. You hear the water, you smell the salt, you are mesmerised by the view. This light filled house is literally on the sands with a small grass lawn to relax on. As well as having direct access to the sea, and the myriad of rock pools, the house also boasts a sheltered BBQ area, so that no matter what the weather there is an outdoor/indoor space where you can still enjoy the outdoors without being exposed to any wind, during the windy periods. Apart from a very good and well equipped kitchen, there is also a great utility space to hold suitcases, laundry, golf clubs etc. There is also a garage, which may be useful to some holiday makers, although there is ample safe on street parking.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great location right on the beach, well decorated and very spacious! No complaints, we had a brilliant time during our stay in the property. Thanks!
Thanks for your positive response.
I hope you will come to South Africa again and that you may consider renting my house again too.
Delighted you had a good time.
Incredible house, location on garden route beach
Spent a week with my girlfriend and some friends in this incredible house. Ideal location, few steps onto a beach with fantastic views into false bay. Very well maintained and clean. All necessary facilities. Management easily contactable and very helpful, very secure area, no safety issues during the trip.
Great area to access both Cape Town easily and also locations along the garden route drive south of the city.
Would happily recommend to friends and family and plan to return in the future.
Thanks a million Liz and Charlotte.
Thanks very much for your positive review.
I am glad that you appreciated the proximity to Cape Town and yet still being able to enjoy the beach, the Garden Route, and still be far from the madding crowd.
You mentioned you plan to return in the future. Please do. It would be a pleasure to host you and your friends again.
I had an amazing experience in this stunning villa in Gordon’s Bay. The house is open, bright, modern and feels so luxurious, right on the waters edge. It has everything you’ll need for a break away in paradise. I would highly recommend this property and would return in a heartbeat.
I'm delighted to receive your lovely review.
I hope you will return in a ' heartbeat'
Thanks for staying with us.
Spacious, modern and bright
I stayed at this property with 7 other friends in early December 2018 and I only have good things to say. Firstly the house is literally on the Beach with incredible views of the bay. We swam in the ocean every day and over the course of the week we ate out on the patio several times and every evening we experienced an incredible sunset over the bay which will stay with me for a long time.
The house itself was incredibly clean, spacious and bright. It was very well equiped with all the modern fittings you could need.
All the bedrooms bar one were ensuite and the beds were very comfortable.
There is an incredibly relaxing upstairs living room once again with great views of the bay and with a large flat screen TV for the days you don't feel liking going out.
The house is also perfectly suited to either indoor or outdoor dining weather dependent and on one of the nights we made use of the outdoor BBQ grill.
The house itself is also within a very secure compound and we felt very safe throughout our stay. Bill, who looks after the property, was also incredibly friendly and accommodating during our time there.
Overall we had a fantastic stay at this property in Cape Town and we very much hope to be returning in the near future. It serves as a relaxing, idyllic retreat but also as the perfect base from which to explore the area.
Thank you very much for your very kind review. I am delighted that you and your friends enjoyed your stay so much in South Africa and that my house served as the perfect spot for relaxation .
I hope you will consider visiting again.
Thank you indeed for staying with us.
Beautiful house with beautiful views
Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Gordon’s bay, the house was bright and airy with plenty of space, with views you never tired of looking at. Bill was very kind and looked in on us several times to make sure we were okay. It’s very secure and can’t praise the security staff enough. It’s very handy for supermarket, chemist and takeaways,just over the road. It’s perfectly situated for exploring hermanus,Stellenbosch And Cape Town. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to friends.
Thank you very much for your kind review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your holiday and the house offered all the respite needed for a good rest.
I look forward to welcoming you back again to Gordons Bay.
Wishing you and your family a very Happy Christmas.
Incredibly beautiful beachfront home
I was absolutely blown away by my stay in Gordon's bay. The house first of all is absolutely incredible. With a back garden opening straight out onto the beautiful beach front, and multiple seating areas that are perfect to enjoy the sun and the view, this house perfectly complements this beautiful area. The inside of the house was no different. Imaculately clean, with a fresh and modern layout, this house defines luxurious. It was such a perfect, relaxing atmosphere to come home to after a day of exploring the beautiful area, with beautiful en suite bedrooms and lovely chill out areas. This house was also the perfect location for our stay in Gordon's bay. A short walk from many beautiful restaurants and bars, and numbers for taxis to bring us to the many brilliantly recommended activities. Charlotte, the owner, was also so helpful during our stay. There was someone on site to greet us upon arrival and to answer any queries that we had throughout the week. There was also any service we could want including washing and cooking facilities, in the house. To finish, I would say that I couldn't recommend staying in Charlotte's beautiful house any more highly. AMAZING!!!
Thank you very much for your review and I am glad you enjoyed your holiday.
I hope you will come again ?

Other Things to Note
This gem property is new to the market commencing November 2014. It is a lovely light airy house and it is beautifully furnished, very comfortable and has the most idyllic view with direct access onto a lovely sandy beach. You can swim on this beach as there is a reef which creates a safe water zone. There are lots of rock pools for the shrimping enthusiast and small children would be in heaven.
