However, you'll find a wide variety of bars and restaurants within a 1-10 km radius, including the ever-popular local hang-out Doodles, 200 m down the road (breakfast/lunch/dinner/drinks). Other dining in the area includes MOYO, a true African experience at Eden on the Bay (3 km). Here you will also find a wide array of breakfast and dining options with ocean views including Ciao Baby Cucina (Italian) and Cafe Sofia Beach Bar. All along Marine Drive (2-3 km from the front door) are a number of dining options and bars with great ocean and mountain views, including Primi Blue and Col-cacchios (really good pizzas), News Cafe, Ocean Basket and the excellent Blowfish Restaurant at Dolphin Beach Hotel (really good sushi and fresh fish). Toward Bloubergstrand is Ons Huisie (traditional food) and On The Rocks (seafood).

Public Transport: Catch the efficient and frequent My CiTi bus service at the Shell Road feeder station 400m from the front door. This means you can get to and from the airport without a vehicle (depending on luggage), enjoy a stress-free ride to the city centre, the Gardens & the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront where a myriad of tourist and sight-seeing opportunities are on offer. At the V&A you can also catch the ever popular City Hop-on, Hop-off double-decker open-top sightseeing bus - the easy, fun way to explore the city and Peninsula sights including Table Mountain Cable Car, Kirstenbosch Gardens and Cape Point Nature Reserve.

Entertainment: Within a radius of 1-10 km you'll find a wide variety of bars, restaurants, shopping malls, cinemas, a very well-equipped Virgin Active gym as well as two links golf courses. The beach front is a year-round hotspot for jogging, cycling, roller-blading, and kite-surfing. On nearby Rietvlei nature reserve you can windsurf and water-ski, while the many beaches in the vicinity are a favourite hangout for local surfers. Mountain-biking and hiking are available at Koeberg Nature Reserve where you can spot Springbok, Eland, Zebra, Bontebok, Blesbok, angulated tortoises and even the odd Cape Cobra, to name but a few. Blaauwberg is also the gateway to the Cape West Coast where the annual flower season in Spring (August to October) remains one of nature's most magnificent displays of beauty. Between August and November you may even spot whales playing in the bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed for five days in Louise´s lovely apartment and we just loved it. Very uncomplicated and friendly welcome. Louise just tried to think about everything and she tries to make everything as easy as possible to her guest`s. The rooms are very clean and spacy. The kitchen is very good equipped. The design is a good mixture of elegance and comfort. We just enjoyed to have our meals on the terrace. The beach with a wonderful view at the table mountain is just in walking distance. We are quite sure that we will book Bliss cottage again if we return to Cape Town.

Baie netjies, skoon, naby strand en restaurant.

  • 4 of 5

Baie dankie vir 'n baie lekker verblyf in Bliss Cottage, Louise! Ons het heeltyd tuis gevoel in die baie netjiese skoon huis. Dit is gelee in 'n veilige omgewing, loopafstand van die strand en lekker restaurant. 'n Spesiale dankie aan jou en Jean vir die ekstra myl wat julle vir ons gestap het! Sou ons weer Kaap toe kom, sal ons nie ander verblyf soek nie! Voorspoed vir 2015!

stunning !

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful experience with louise. She was very helpful and her cottage absolutely stunning. Everything I could wish for was there. You really just have to pack you bags and go. Even beach towels were provided. The cottage was 100% clean and all the little extras were a real bonus. I would recommend this establishment to everyone!

Greetings

A home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We rented Bliss Cottage for a few weeks in November/December 2014 and loved it! From the warm welcome on our arrival from Louise to the cleanliness of the cottage, to the comfortable rooms and large living space. The cottage has an excellent location.

Travelling with a young child for the first time was a bit daunting but all of our (and my son’s) needs were catered for – highchair, travel cot and even a bucket and spade were provided.

We are planning on returning in a few years time and will definitely be booking Bliss Cottage again.

Home away from Home.

  • 5 of 5

This was now the one the best holidays that me and my family enjoyed in a long time. The host Louise, you treated us like family and the Bliss Cottage was amazing, beautiful, clean and homely. We will definitely visit the cottage again when we holiday in the Western Cape.

Thanks,

Ben, Noleen, Warren and Anastacia.

Best self-catering experience yet!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Bliss Cottage for a short break-away for our little family and it was marvellous. Not only is the cottage clean and neat - the art and decor is exquisit. The rooms are snuggly and warm with a heater in all of them including the bathroom - nothing nicer than wrapping up in a warm soft towel after a nice bath. All the finer details were taken care of - the owner Louise is always willing to go the extra mile - she even arranged a high chair and bottle brush for my little one - which meant I didnt have to travel down to Cape town with everything but the kitchen sink. We had a lovely stay and would recommend Bliss Cottage to everyone - one of the best self catering experiences yet!
