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.

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!

A lovely little house

  • 5 of 5
Bliss Cottage is a lovely cottage. Louise and Jean were the perfect owners- welcoming us to Bliss Cottage and helping us with any queries during our 2 week stay. The cottage is well equipped, modern and has a large living space. The location close to the beach was perfect, and the view across to Table Mountain every morning was fabulous.

Blouberg Bliss indeed!

  • 5 of 5
EXCELLENT!!! By far the best self catering we have ever stayed in. We spent 2 weeks in Blouberg Bliss and found it to be exceptionally well maintained, clean and well appointed. Absolutely everything we could have needed during our stay and more we found in the cottage and the owners were extremely friendly and more than willing to accomodate any special requests we had. The cottage has a fantastic homely feeling and we really felt like it was home away from home. Every moment of our stay in the cottage was pleasurable and we couldn't have made a better choice in accomodation for our stay! Thanks - we will definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: Lauren, Zach and Jessica, you were wonderful guests and it was such a pleasure to have you stay with us at Bliss Cottage. We certainly hope to have you return again and again as I would personally love to see little Jessica growing up.
At Bliss Cottage it is definitely our aim to create a home from home environment for our guests where all they need to bring is themselves, their clothes and their food. We try to equip the cottage with the rest of the day to day necessities, such as salt, pepper, basic spices and herbs, tea and coffee, cleaning materials and washing powder.
Please be back - you would be so very welcome!

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay at Bliss cottage. It almost felt as if we were home. It was private and cozy and everything we needed was there, from spices and cooking oil to laundry washing powder. The cottage is walking distance from the Blouberg beach and we all enjoyed our daily walks along the beach. Its also close to a few shops, so for days you want to stay in and around the cottage its easy to get the things you needed without driving far. We really had an awesome stay at bliss cottage and will definitely come and visit again. Thanks Louise!

Owner's Response: We are so happy when our guests feel so at home. The private cozyness also comes from the fact that we are only one road up from Marine Drive (which can be very busy during peak hour traffic) yet still only a 5 min walk from the beach. Having so many restaurants and bars and three shopping centres close by also makes for great ease and variety without having to venture far.
