Scarborough House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms (ensuite), sleeps 6, pool, indigenous garden

Located in an exclusive conservation village on the Cape Peninsula, this unique villa offers a true escape for those wishing to leave the hurly-burly of the city behind. Sip cocktails in the pool and dream as it merges into sea beyond, watch whales, meander down to the local beach, or simply snooze to the sound of the waves breaking below.

More about the house location: Unobstructed 180 degree views up and down the magnificent coastline. The house faces west to capture the best of the Cape's wonderful sunsets over the sea. Watch WHALES close inshore from the comfort of home during the breeding season (Aug - Dec). Views of the sea and mountains can be enjoyed from all rooms in the house and from the elevated pool. By night, brilliant star gazing. The house is not part of a complex and no facilities are shared with any other holiday makers - it's all yours! Additional pictures and a location map are available by email on request.

More about the interior of the house: The interior has been finished by an interior designer in collaboration with the owner. The aim is a stylish yet relaxing interior. The house is tiled throughout. All three bedrooms are ensuite. Each bedroom/ bathroom combination is unique, with bathrooms finished individually with high quality Italian tiles and fittings. The main bedroom has its own balcony and a bathroom with bath and his and her shower heads and wonderful views. The house is serviced weekly (more frequently on request at reasonable rates), with all linen and towels provided. The kitchen is fully equipped. The house has metal roller blinds on all windows allowing control of sunlight as well as providing security should guests wish to sleep with doors open. The house is in a safe area but for added comfort is alarmed and connected direct to a local security patrol company.

More about nearby amenities: The house is about 50 minutes' drive from central Cape Town and its international Airport. (Arrangements can be made to meet guests at the airport and guide them to the house if desired). There are also a number of more attractive (slower) coastal and inland drives to get to central Cape Town and its popular Waterfront. The historic vineyards at Constantia and Steenberg are a short drive away. The house is located close to Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and, over a short mountain pass, to the historic naval town of Simon's Town with its boutiques, cafes and yacht basin and to Boulders, well known for its penguin colony and protected swimming. Fishhoek with its long, safe beach for kids and the eclectic fishing village of Kalk Bay are both a leisurely half hour's drive away. Scarborough, with its quaint restaurant and local shops, is the closest town and is a 5 minute drive away. There are supermarkets, cinemas and other shops, golf, etc within a 15 minute drive.

T Wolfensberger, Switzerland. 'Fantastic panorama, fantastic architecture. The perfect place...'
The Davies family, London SW1 UK. 'A great vacation in a great location. Nothing can beat swimming with penguins at Boulders beach, or sight of the stars on a clear night. Except perhaps looking out of the window when we wake and seeing whales in the bay. We are sorry to be leaving and hope to be back again some day.'
The Scattergoods, Marlborough, UK. 'Your Cape mountainside property, with its wonderful design, location, facilities and support arrangements, is our new best friend. Brilliant!'
The Dalle Nogares, Essex UK. 'This has been the perfect end to our honeymoon. The views/sunset are magical. All the info in the house and that sent by Nicola was very helpful when exploring the Cape and Winelands. Well done on a fantastic getaway – I wish it was ours!'
The Barkers, Bedforshire, UK. 'Our second visit to the house and everything as impressive as our first....'

We came here for our 10th wedding anniversary and this place was more than what we expected. Our anniversary became the most memorable time ever. Thank you so much to Guy and Nicola for providing us with such a wonderful place to stay. We just wish we could stay longer, as many other visitors thought. This home is well designed for any guests. Such a beautiful place. we hope we’ll be back in near future again.

All seven of us have spent a wonderful week at Misty Cliffs. The house suited us perfectly and the view from the house is not going to be found anywhere. We all enjoyed the pool in the morning and afternoon, and the sunset.

Perfect start...idyllic setting..

  • Submitted: Mar 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
Perfect start to our introduction to SA. Home from home – attention to detail in the house, advice and guidance as to what to do and where to go. Ideal base for exploring the Cape and a luxurious retreat at the end of the day. What an idyllic setting – sun, sand, sea, mountain and sunsets. If we are luck enough to return to the Cape we know where to come!! Thank you for a most wonderful stay. Hope to return one day.

It has been a truly memorable holiday in a beautiful location. Whales and dolphins swam by (but the baboons kept to themselves).

Everyday we couldn't describe the feeling to stay here. Breathtaking views are indescribable because of 180 degree panorama. We are sure to come back to SA. Special thanks to Nicola.

Delighted to be back at Misty Cliffs. We have enjoyed immensely our week in this beautiful location. We rent properties all over the world and this has to be one of our favourites.
