Beautiful, spacious, modern home with outstanding entertainment areas both inside and out. Furnished to the highest standard, this home offers a truly luxurious holiday experience. The lower level has a family room to the left opening up onto the sparkling pool with uninterrupted sea views. To the right is a large beautifully furnished open plan lounge/dining room which leads onto a fully equipped kitchen. There is also a guest W.C. and separate laundry room on this level. An impressive spiral staircase leads to the second level which contains 4 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms, 2 en-suite. The main bedroom is enormous with a walk-in dressing room, en-suite bathroom and lounge area. 3 of the bedrooms open up onto a large balcony with stunning sea views. The house is situated in Gordon’s Bay, a small village popular with South Africans who know the best of what the country has to offer. It’s not difficult to see why: unlike much of the Cape, the sea is warm and safe. Then there are numerous nature reserves and beautiful walks in the vicinity. If you prefer to be more active, you can go deep-sea fishing or sailing and there are three excellent golf courses nearby. Down the road is the renowned Stellenbosch wine region, alternatively use Gordon’s Bay as your starting point to the Garden Route. In spring, pods of whales can be seen and heard from the balcony. In all, Gordon's Bay is a wonderful location to enjoy the best that Cape Town has to offer, and with this house you can do it in style!

About Daphne de Vries
I live in England with my wife and three children, my family is the most important thing to me, but after that comes my mountain bike and our home in Cape Town.
Daphne de Vries purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Daphne de Vries chose Mountainside
I grew up in Cape Town and Gordon's Bay is where we spent many family holidays. I like this side of the bay because the sea-water is warmer, you are closer to the vineyards of Stellenbosch, and it is just a whole lot more chilled out! A place to unwind. Yet, you can still easily get to Cape Town when you want to live it up.
What makes this Villa unique
The views are just spectacular, there is always something going on in the bay, and in Spring the whales come right into the bay, you can often see them from the house.

They UNDER SELL how beautiful the views are!!!!
1st Dafne is great and on top of everything. The owner was nice enough to call from England to make sure we were comfortable and had all we needed!!! But the house is great and just as described. Maybe the only negative is when it’s windy the windows rattle. That’s it!!! If you like amazing views..... THIS IS IT!!! So glad we stayed here!
Home met all our needs and was as represented. Great views and quiet neighborhood. Convenient location for visits to wineries. Agent was very helpful and informative.
Fantastic House - Fantastic Views
This house comfortably catered for 8 adults and one child. We had a great view of Gordon's bay and managed to spot some whale and dolphin whilst lounging by the pool. The pool provided much needed relief from the Cape Town heat! The gas braai meant we could cook our own meals and soak up the views as the sunset. If the weather was windy or cool, the was a large dining table in the open plan kitchen/dining/living room with amazing views.
The house catered for the child in our party (3 years old) very well as the lounge room situated next to the pool contained many toys and a TV with kids channels. This was a welcome surprise once we arrived!
The house was well stocked with all the necessities required; towels, sheets, look roll, washing up liquid, large fridge, kitchenware etc.
The agent the we met on arrival was super helpful and was readily contactable with any queries we had throughout our week long stay.
Would recommend this property and would stay again.
absolutely fantastic Daphne was great. Would love to stay here again.
Lovely enjoyable villa.
Spacious Villa With Wonderful Views
The villa was perfect for the start of our holiday in South Africa. Our party was made up of three mature couples. The booking process was very straight forward with excellent communications with Daphne the agent who manages the property. She greeted us on arrival and showed us the villa. Throughout our stay she was always easily contactable for advice if needed. The villa was perfect. The lounge area and kitchen dining area provide loads of space for people to sit together or to find a quiet corner.
The villa is very well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The terrace and pool area offers a lovely place to eat, take a dip and enjoy the views. The bedrooms are very comfortable with three of them opening onto a huge upper terrace again with amazing views across False Bay towards Table Mountain. It is a pity there is no furniture on the upper terrace to sit and enjoy the stunning views.
The villa is just a short distance from Gordon's Bay with its beautiful beach and many restaurants. We tried quite a few and would certainly recommend Zest as a must to visit.
We were delighted with the villa and all it and the area had to offer us during our stay. Thank you Daphne for all the help and advice.
Beautiful villa in a perfect location
We were two couples on our first visit to South Africa. The photos and description do not do justice to this beautiful, spacious and very well equipped villa. Daphne provided a lovely welcome and gave us excellent advice on the nearest grocery store and where to eat. The villa is in a perfect location for visiting Cape Town, the winelands and many other things to do in the surrounding area. Highly recommended.
To George and all our guests - thank you for staying at our home. We really enjoy sharing our home with you all, and always feel thrilled to receive positive comments and constructive feedback.
Gordon's Bay, the nearest village, is a 2 minutes drive. Cape Town is an hour away by car, Stellenbosch and the wine route is 30 minutes drive.
Cape Town international airport is a 35 minute drive from the house. Car hire is essential.
The nearest beach is less than 2 kilometres away, but it is best to drive there.
