Beach House on the Rocks

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 - 10 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This new state-of-the-art beach bungalow has granite seawalls on two sides and glass windows on every side to offer a 360 degree view of the magnificent world heritage site of Table Mountain and an uninterrupted view across the waters in front to Lions Head. Landscape wonders are visible from the kitchen, living room, main bedroom and even the bathroom!

Slide back the glass doors and the house becomes part of the rocks, beach and seascape. Luxurious, but not pretentious, the house blends into this environment and allows you to experience it in a most relaxed way.

The house is private when you want and is open to nature as and when you wish it. It is very green as well (solar panels, water recycling, well water for the garden).

There are too many luxurious features to list them all (please send an e-mail if there is some feature of concern to you) but among them:

• Wooden decks all around leading to a private entertainment area that includes a Jacuzzi hot tub recessed into the deck, seating, table, a pagoda/gazebo, barbecue and sink

• Three bedrooms (master and 2 guests)—all with views

• Two bathrooms, one with a bidet, large tub and a boulder on one side to form the wall

• The gorgeous open plan kitchen has magnificent views with all the amenities (gas stove, microwave and convection oven, icemakers, etc.)

• Wireless internet throughout the property

• Flat screen HD TV in all the rooms with satellite and built in speakers for music throughout the house

• Beautiful gardens

• An outdoor hot water shower nestled among the boulders on the property

• A garage available

• Maintenance man on premises (separate area and entrance)

• Wheelchair friendly: no steps from the street and throughout the house and decks

• Easy walk into restaurants, shops and beach in Camps Bay (but the house is on a more exclusive and quiet beach)

Why Benard Spiro chose Camps Bay

It's obvious! A one of a kind house with a billion dollar view that fills the senses!

What makes this house unique

Probably the most unique thing is that it is situated right on the rocks and beach, within a nature reserve with mountains behind and yet close enough to the Cape Town city centre as to be there in 15 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the most magical stay that we have experienced. Beautiful house, simple, comfortable and luxurious. Waking up in the morning to the sound of the ocean and sitting on the rocks outside the house watching the sunset. Wow but the ocean is sure cold. A very peaceful and energising holiday!

Perfect accommodation for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and four school-age children stayed in the house while visiting Cape Town for the first time. I cannot imagine a better home base for a holiday. It is conveniently located to access all of the tourist destinations on the cape. My kids loved playing on the rocks, and my wife and I never tired of the beautiful sunsets. Opening the doors and windows made it sound and look like we were on the ocean - so relaxing! Thanks for sharing your house with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Nate and Melissa. It was a pleasure having your family stay at our house and to appreciate its beautiful location and how it lifts the spirit to have such majesty at the doorstep. We also reap the soulful rewards of living here most of the year including winters, which can also be quite amazing.

Highly recommend! Would love to return!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our 2 young adult daughters, and I stayed at the beach house on the rocks for 5 nights. It was the perfect place from which we explored Capetown. After busy days of sightseeing, we enjoyed relaxing at the house with amazing views in every direction and spectacular sunsets. There is convenient parking on the street. We drove our rental car from the house to Cape Point, but otherwise used Uber to go into the city center, V & A Waterfront, Table Mtn, Kirstenbosch Gardens, etc. The house is modern and immaculately clean with very comfortable beds and great showers. Bernard, the owner, had wonderful suggestions for restaurants, sightseeing, etc. and he was able to provide someone to do our laundry at the house so we had more time to see the sights!

One of a kind house with once in a lifetime views!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely incredible. The home is built into the rocks and has the most amazing views. It has expansive and impressive views of Table Mountain. We had 4 adults and each had it's own space to stretch out in plus great shared living space. We took full advantage of the doors that open completely up and enjoyed the gorgeous sunset from our home. The hot tub was great after a long day of sightseeing. The home is so unique and beautiful... the master bath has a fantastic tub and massive gorgeous rocks inside the bathroom as the home is built into the mountainside.

Bernard was great and hospitable. He helped us to find some great things to do with the rest of our trip and when the wifi went down, he even let us use his personal computer to do required business. The home is in a great spot in Camp's Bay and is just a quick trip to local beaches, restaurants, and bars. Would absolutely go back and recommend this incredible place to anyone.

Almost like staying in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Tried the One & Only, Cape Grace, Table Bay and Delaire Graff before. 2 weeks living on the rocks was beating them all: so impressive, relaxing and breathtaking at the same time. The location is probably the best in Cape Town/Camps Bay. Luxury and nature at its best. The beach bungalow offers everything you'd expect from a exclusive resort style home including twice a week maid service. We'll come again soon!
