A surfers', hikers' and adventurers' paradise, the Cape Peninsula is endlessly beautiful. Pristine beaches, Cape Point,the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, vineyards, great food, penguins... Summer or winter, there is no place like this to put your feet up, enjoy and explore. The house has beautiful and expansive views and is the perfect fully-equipped chillhouse so you may well not want to venture further than home.

The space

Breathtaking views across mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful central deck area for lounging, dining and relaxing.

“This is the loveliest house we have every stayed at. The view over the ocean and the mountains will take your breath away every morning and every evening. Even if you stay for two weeks like we did. It is an old house with lots of antique furniture that radiates warmth and happiness, there are hundreds of books and children's hight marks on the door, a super well equipped kitchen that can turn out a feast for a dozen, and a garage full of water sport toys. Oh, and great matresses, too. Tammy and Craig, the owners, who live downstairs, are a most inspiring, gracefull, beautiful and fun couple and we really miss their company. As for Kommetjie, it is a small surfer town and Craig knows all the best spots but even if you don't surf it is a great place. There is a beautiful mountain walk starting right behind the house. And you won't find a better place to read a book then the cushions on the deck outside. ”

Tammy and Craig were great hosts for the perfect home-away-from-home stay. The house has the feel of a stylish but lived-in family beach house, with all the conveniences you could hope. The house boasts a very well equipped kitchen, one of the coolest views of Table Mountain we've ever seen and is environmentally sorted too (grey water re-use, recycling etc.). For those guests who are young at heart, there are plenty of board games as well as surf boards, yoga mats and kayak in the garage below. The maid Julie, is a legend and went way beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything was super clean and tidy. And if you are looking to improve your surf creds, Craig is a local legend and will show you some new spots and skills. This is the perfect spot for a fuss-free break... but with plenty to keep you busy. We couldn't recommend this place enough.
