About Annie Rankin
I grew up in Llandudno so have lived here for more years than I care to remember (or disclose!) In my 20's I packed my bags and travelled to Europe, the States and Canada. Working extensively overseas broadened my outlook enormously and has subsequently helped me to appreciate the needs of our guests who arrive from all over the world. But, even when working abroad, I always knew that the wonderful people and beauty of South Africa was going to draw me back one day. And when I did return, there was only one place to live and that was Llandudno. Today my role is House Manager for The Beach House and I have a small team consisting of Julia and David who help with keeping the house and garden clean and tidy. I have my own completely separate apartment below the main house and I'm on hand not just to welcome you but to answer any queries you may have which might be on good restaurants in the area, activities, vineyards to visit and so on. But don't worry, if you have your own plans and know the area I won't be interfering in your holiday. It is rare to find somewhere as beautiful as the position of The Beach House in Cape Town and wonderful to be able to stay in a house that fits well with such a special place. I get to wake up to the view every day but hope the photos show a little of what you can expect. Do contact me if I can answer any of your additional questions.
Why Annie Rankin chose Hout Bay
I have lived in an apartment below the main house for more than 20 years but have known Jane and David who own the house for over 15 years ago. I thought I would leave 'why the property' to them: 'Back in 2001, we parked the car outside a rather ordinary looking house in Llandudno. We were having a very quick look at some properties that might be suitable for us before we had to fly home. The Estate Agent apologized profusely for the house and dragged back the sliding door (with some difficulty) to let us in to the garden. And that was when the views hit us. We hadn't realized that the house and garden was perched on top of giant granite boulders looking down the length of the beach towards the iconic Llandudno rocks...and the ocean just seemed huge! A few months later the house was ours and we set about extensive renovations. For the next 10 years The Beach House was our family holiday home and then let to guests for the rest of the year. Many of our guests returned to the house year after year and became firm friends of Annie to be welcomed back many times. But after 10 years the old house was struggling and was going to need a significant rebuild. Although difficult, in 2012 we decided take down the house and build a new property. The new house would have two levels and would be built to maximize the views in a way that old property never could. In October 2013 the new house was finished and the end result was worth every single Rand. We loved it and returning home after the first visit was very difficult. It's very difficult to do full justice to the house, garden and views on HomeAway but we hope we can give you a flavour here. If you do have other questions please do ask Annie'. We hope you have the chance to come and stay and experience what we did all those years ago.
What makes this House unique
The views, the garden and the house are great but our little extra secret is the team who are on hand to make sure you are looked after. As House Manager, I hope I can help make sure your vacation takes in the best of Cape Town. You will also meet Julia, a firm favourite with guests, who has worked in the house for over 10 years, and is very much a part of our family. Julia cleans, washes and irons; in fact, there isn't much that Julia doesn't do in her three visits each week. And finally, we have David who once a week keeps the garden looking great.
