Located near Cape Town in the quaint and lovely town of Scarborough, Fynbos Hill is an architect-designed beach house with spectacular sea and mountain views. The house offers four bedrooms with two doubles and two twins. The main lounge has fantastic panoramic sea views and a wrap-around deck with Constantina doors, perfect for whale-watching in season. There is also a bar, a TV lounge with DSTV cable, and a fully equipped kitchen. All rooms enjoy beautiful sea or mountain views.
Outdoor features include a gorgeous deck and outdoor area built to be sheltered from the wind, a swimming pool, a fire pit, a barbecue area, and a hot outdoor shower. There is also a wood-burning indoor fireplace for chilly evenings. The house is fully alarmed and has secure parking for three cars behind automated gates. Fynbos Hill has a fully enclosed fynbosa garden and is within easy walking distance of the beach.
While easily accessible to Cape Town and the surrounding areas, Scarborough is known for its quaint village feel. It's a place to escape, surrounded by the beauty of nature, mountains and oceans. The area is ideal for hiking, swimming, surfing and world-renowned kite-surfing. Also on the doorstep of the Cape Point Nature Reserve.
We spend part of the year at our house in Scarborough and part of the year in Johannesburg. We love Scarborough and spend as much time as possible in this little village that we call home when we are here.
Jenny Schultz purchased this house in 2012
Wonderful property. Spacious, well equipped,fabulous beach, sea and mountain views. We saw whales and baboons from the upstairs verandah where we spent most of our home time. Comfy ,clean beds sleeping up to 8 people. The weather was amazing and it was a 40 min easy drive into Cape Town. We loved being outside of busy CT but with easy access in when we wanted. We would highly recommend This house to family and friends and we would stay here again when we next visit.
This house has an awesome two floor lay-out. It is private and serene. The house is cozy but also allows for privacy with a big family or group; no one is cheated:) We stayed with 2 active young boys and grandparents. It was perfect for us, with extra space. Beach, trails and restaurants are in walking distance, but to be honest, it was hard to leave the house! Cape town and all it's attractions are a short drive away if you need. Highly recommend for couples and/or family.
Fabulous, spacious beach house with amazing sea views. Bedrooms are a good size and the whole place is tastefully decorated with beach cottage chic. Short distance to unspoilt and quiet beach. A perfect spot for a weekend getaway or a longer family holiday. Be aware that it is a 45 min drive to Cape Town, or you can take the long route via stunning Chapman's Peak - well worth it.
My top 5 things about this house
- magnificent views
- modern and bright
- awesome pool
- perfect place to host a braai (barbecue)
- 5 minute walk to the beach
I would definitely recommend to people looking for a relaxing escape in paradise!
I really enjoyed my stay at Fynbos Hill. I was given good instructions how to get there and the place was really well maintained and clean. The house is spacious, fully equipped and beautifully decorated. The upstairs view to the sea is stunning and I loved the walks to the tranquil Scarborough beach. The town is very small and laid back with a couple of cozy restaurants and shops but there are also plenty of options for activities nearby, like hiking, game viewing, even canoeing to see the penguins or scuba diving with the seals. Going to Cape Town you can take the beautiful Chapman's Peak route. I would definitely recommend Fynbos Hill and look forward to returning there myself too!
Scarborough is a seaside conservation village where nature is at its most superb. With the chilly Atlantic on your side, the road from Kommetjie winds past Witsands and the tiny hamlets of Misty Cliffs, a popular surf & kite surfing spot, to Scarborough, a beautiful Atlantic seaside village with unspoiled beaches and mountains. It is right on the doorstep of Table Mountain National Park with views of the Cape of Good Hope. Scarborough feels like a forgotten outpost, so enjoy the peace and the tranquillity with the luxury of easy accessibility to Cape Town the rest of the Cape Point Route.
