About this listing

Our home in Kommetjie is within Klein Slangkop eco-estate, which is bordered by the famous Long Beach, as well as natural Cape fynbos protected land. We love our airy home, the large enclosed verandah overlooking the pool, the mountain & ocean views.

The space

The spacious double-volume living space flows directly onto the large, covered and glass-enclosed verandah. From the verandah, you can jump straight into the pool, unwind on the sun loungers, or barbeque your dinner at the undercover "braai". Dogs will love the garden, and the 10-minute stroll down to Long Beach, a white-sand beach which is perfect for long walks (over 10kms!), surfing & sundowners.

Guest access

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a very spacious lounge, dining and kitchen open-plan area, a double garage and loads of garden for kids (age 10+) and dogs.
Our study is a private space and is not available to guests.

Interaction with guests

We are always available to assist you, for any information or bookings or any concerns you may have. We will not be on the premises during your stay at Orca House, but we will be within an hour's drive, or will have an agent available to assist you.

Other things to note

Please note: No children under age 10, as our pool is uncovered, our staircase is open on one side, and there are large glass sliding doors throughout.
Our home is cleaned 3 days per week, by our long-time & trustworthy housekeepers. Our pool & garden are serviced weekly.
In peak summer season (mid December - mid January), we accept 14-day minimum bookings only.

Thanks to Janet and Mike for a wonderful stay at their beautiful home in Kommetjie. The house is clean and spacious, with a relaxing and peaceful ambience. It is close to the beach and perfect for walks and sundowners. The house is fully equipped and had everything we needed during our stay. Janet was friendly and really helpful. It makes for a great, quiet beach getaway!

Janet was great. We had to arrive a day late but she still met us to show us around her beautiful house. We really really loved our two weeks in Klein Slangkop. Comments from the family include: really nicely furnished, fun pool, relaxing view from the incredibly comfy sofa on the veranda, best hammock ever, brilliant sunbathing rock, increbly well stocked with games and even a car race track for our 10 year old. Thank you so much. The information provided and books on things of local interest were really helpful. We did a great walk on Table Mountain and are planning some slack packing for next time. The estate feels very safe too. Jane and Louisa were lovely and happily washed and ironed our clothes and kept the house tidy. We cannot recommend 1 Orca Close highly enough. Thank you.

Hi Tara & family, Thank you so much for your lovely review, much appreciated. We are so glad that you enjoyed our home and estate. And thank you for mentioning the fans over summer, great idea, will do! And also the darker curtains - that is on our shopping list too :) Hope to meet again. Have a wonderful 2017. Warm regards from Janet & Mike, Kommetjie ps - I read with interest that you are a garden designer :) - if you have any great ideas on how to enhance our garden, would love to hear. I can imagine that your English garden must be absolutely beautiful.

Janet ist eine liebevolle und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Das Haus liegt traumhaft ruhig, nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß zum öffentlichen Kommetjie Strand und rechts weiter beginnend zum 6 km langen Long Beach Richting Noordhoek. Hier kann man lange Spaziergänge machen und man trifft auf Hundebesitzer oder Reiter mit Pferden. Im Februar ist das Wasser auf dieser Seite 15 C kalt und es sind Surfer und eher Mutige beim baden. Das Haus ist liebevoll eingerichtet und die Küche voll ausgestattet, überall ist reichlich Platz. 3 mal die Woche kommt eine freundliche Putzfrau und sorgt für Sauberkeit. Wir haben uns gern mit reichlich Geschenken bei ihr bedankt und beide Seiten waren glücklich. Es gibt einen kleinen Pool zum Schwimmen und davor eine schöne Terasse mit großen zu öffnenden Glastüren. Das Auto parkt man im Innenhof des Hauses oder direkt in der Garage. Zu und Abfahrt mit dem Auto in das Wohngebiet wird durch einen Sicherheitscheck an einem Checkpoint über einen privaten Wachdienst regestriert. 10 Minuten mit dem Auto erreicht man den großen Supermarkt Pick and Pay, Tankstelle sowie Restaurant + Cafe Imhoff Farm. Von Kommetjie aus startend sind zum Beispiel Chapman´s Peak Drive, Hout Bay, Camps Bay, Kapstadt, Boulder Beach, Kalk Bay, Muizenberg, Ostrich Farm, Cape of Good Hoope...relativ schnell mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Wir hatten eine wirklich schöne, entdeckungsreiche und erholsame Zeit und können Kommetjie und das Orca House jederzeit gern weiterempfehlen. Nochmals vielen Dank Janet
