Why West Beach, Cape Town, South Africa:
Although I live nearby myself, it always makes me feel as if I am on holiday when I drive along the beachfront of Table View and Bloubergstrand on my way to Bliss Cottage. Why? There are kite-boarders or stand-up paddlers dotting the bay (depending on the wind), people sitting at beach-side cafe's and restaurants enjoying the view of the sea and Table Mountain, kids queueing for ice-cream, travelers bargaining for beautiful African wood carvings from local vendors, people jogging, roller-blading or cycling... the list goes on. Bliss Cottage is just one street up from all this sea-side fun, tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac. Open the front door and you will immediately feel the home-from-home vibe. Especially when you relax in the leafy privately enclosed courtyard while a delicious lamb chops sizzle on the built-in barbeque.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to the beach, but away from the traffic noise. Your own, free-standing holiday house with ample parking and beautiful flow from the house into the courtyard garden. Very well-appointed with everything you need for a fuss-free self-catering holiday.
