About Daphne de Vries
I live in England with my wife and three children, my family is the most important thing to me, but after that comes my mountain bike and our home in Cape Town.
Daphne de Vries purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Daphne de Vries chose Mountainside
I grew up in Cape Town and Gordon's Bay is where we spent many family holidays. I like this side of the bay because the sea-water is warmer, you are closer to the vineyards of Stellenbosch, and it is just a whole lot more chilled out! A place to unwind. Yet, you can still easily get to Cape Town when you want to live it up.
What makes this Villa unique
The views are just spectacular, there is always something going on in the bay, and in Spring the whales come right into the bay, you can often see them from the house.

great location, very helpful manager
Good location, easy access to shops very cost effective visits to vineyards, beautiful weather windy at times
Extraordinary view in a special home
Our family of four adults and one infant had plenty of space in this beautiful home. It is well cared for and appointed, with comfortable beds, a well-equipped kitchen, a lovely pool, garage parking and a stunning view. Communication before the trip was comprehensive, so we had no worries. I hope to return!
They UNDER SELL how beautiful the views are!!!!
1st Dafne is great and on top of everything. The owner was nice enough to call from England to make sure we were comfortable and had all we needed!!! But the house is great and just as described. Maybe the only negative is when it’s windy the windows rattle. That’s it!!! If you like amazing views..... THIS IS IT!!! So glad we stayed here!
Home met all our needs and was as represented. Great views and quiet neighborhood. Convenient location for visits to wineries. Agent was very helpful and informative.
Fantastic House - Fantastic Views
This house comfortably catered for 8 adults and one child. We had a great view of Gordon's bay and managed to spot some whale and dolphin whilst lounging by the pool. The pool provided much needed relief from the Cape Town heat! The gas braai meant we could cook our own meals and soak up the views as the sunset. If the weather was windy or cool, the was a large dining table in the open plan kitchen/dining/living room with amazing views.
The house catered for the child in our party (3 years old) very well as the lounge room situated next to the pool contained many toys and a TV with kids channels. This was a welcome surprise once we arrived!
The house was well stocked with all the necessities required; towels, sheets, look roll, washing up liquid, large fridge, kitchenware etc.
The agent the we met on arrival was super helpful and was readily contactable with any queries we had throughout our week long stay.
Would recommend this property and would stay again.
absolutely fantastic Daphne was great. Would love to stay here again.
Lovely enjoyable villa.
Gordon's Bay, the nearest village, is a 2 minutes drive. Cape Town is an hour away by car, Stellenbosch and the wine route is 30 minutes drive.
Cape Town international airport is a 35 minute drive from the house. Car hire is essential.
The nearest beach is less than 2 kilometres away, but it is best to drive there.
