About Charlotte Storm
My name is Charlotte. I adore all animals as they are so uncomplicated ! What you see is what you get ! I am off to university next year to study Vetinary science and who knows where I will end up then...maybe tropical med for animals in S Africa ! I am from Europe and have been smitten by South Africa, and when I came across this idyllic house, on the Garden Route, while holidaying in the Western Cape, I just fell in love with it - I think you will too. This area of stunning natural beauty offers so much in terms of water sports activities, gourmet delights in the amazing award winning restaurants of the winelands, the abundance of nature reserves, and the proximity to City life, make it a number one choice for any holiday maker. Enjoy !
Charlotte Storm purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Charlotte Storm chose Gordons Bay Central
Situated on the Whale Coast in the little coastal village of Gordon's Bay, the family friendly Bikini Beach is one of Cape Town's six Blue Flag Beaches, indicating a high level of water quality, facilities, cleanliness and safety. The house is a one off design within a gated estate, 24 hour manned security. The property sits right on the beach and the beauty of this beach is that it is safe to swim on, in that it has its own little reef - so that the bathers can swim at their leisure. For the fitness enthusiast, there is a swimming pool and a tennis court within the grounds. What is really great about this property is that - within not much more than half an hour, you can be in the centre of Capetown, or sitting in Stellenbosch enjoying the delights of the historic winelands, or on Safari, or at the renowned little town of Hermanus where the whales come to have their young. Just 4 kms for the house visit Blue Rock Cable Waterski - An exciting and thrilling water activity awaits you at Blue Rock Lake. There are so many nature reserves, and hiking trails to explore too. Just lots and lots and lots to do. See for yourself.
What makes this Villa unique
When you open the front door of this house - you are immediately captured by the blue of the sea. The sea sometimes feels like it is actually in the house. You hear the water, you smell the salt, you are mesmerised by the view. This light filled house is literally on the sands with a small grass lawn to relax on. As well as having direct access to the sea, and the myriad of rock pools, the house also boasts a sheltered BBQ area, so that no matter what the weather there is an outdoor/indoor space where you can still enjoy the outdoors without being exposed to any wind, during the windy periods. Apart from a very good and well equipped kitchen, there is also a great utility space to hold suitcases, laundry, golf clubs etc. There is also a garage, which may be useful to some holiday makers, although there is ample safe on street parking.

This piece of Paradise is a treasure and everything it is hyped up to be, from the superb layout of the house, the amenities on the estate, the waves lapping on the doorstep on an idyllic sandy beach and its proximity to the heart of the Winelands, Cape Town and Cape Point.
The house is superbly furnished. It is bright and airy, with copious space. It is equipped with satellite tv & wi-fi neither of which we barely used as there is so much to do in the vicinity. There are tremendous domestic facilities too which makes it all very easy to prepare food and clear away afterwards. There are also lovely lounging areas - and one can easily get away from 'the crowd'.
We only had a short stay, but the children made us promise that we will come back again to this property next year, even if its wintertime! ......
We cannot fault any part of our memorable time here it was just such a peaceful heaven.
Gorgeous views and lovely beach for the whole family!
We had an amazing time at our stay in Gordon's Bay. The house is really big an accommodated two children, two parents and two grandparents with a whole room to spare!
Positives of the property:
- We cannot say enough about the views from this place! Sunsets every night that are breathtaking and the water looks so clear in the afternoons.
- Bill, the manager onsite, was incredible and provided us with everything we could possibly need for our stay (a baby cot with mattress and linens), tennis balls and even a blow dryer. Wonderful service from him!
- So much linens for bedding and towels. We never had to worry about running out.
- Nice big washer and dryer.
- Plenty of cleaning products and cooking utensils for us to use.
- Bathrooms for each room plus another half bath (you can't have too many).
- Access to the beach from the back patio. For us, low tide was in the morning so we could take the kids tide-pooling to check out little crabs and starfish and have a play in the water. It is protected from waves during low tide due to the reef - ideal for kids!
Things to improve:
- Finding the property was a bit difficult (I should have tried to get directions sooner). But once we found it everything else was easy.
- There were a couple (friendly) cockroaches that came to visit us during the day. This is Africa though so it wasn't a major concern.
- Just a warning for those with small children, there are stairs throughout the property so just be aware of that. However, we were able to block off an area downstairs with toys for our kids so it wasn't much of a problem. And lots of handrails everywhere helped us tremendously.
Overall, I would say that this is a perfect house for a large family or a few couples. Lots of space and amenities for everyone and a large dining table with a stunning view to congregate. Definitely worth recommending. You will not be disappointed.
Many thanks for your lovely review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in beautiful Gordons Bay and that our house met all your expectations. Also thank you for your kind comments on our house Manager Bill, who likes to make everyone very welcome and comfortable and is a great local knowledge expert too.
We look forward to welcoming you again sometime soon and once more thank-you for staying in our home by the sea.
All the best
Beautiful villa on the coast
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful Gordon's Bay villa. It is a spacious, well- appointed home with decent wifi and great cable. However, there is so much to see close by, you won't really want to sit in the house on your devices! The view is stunning and the location is convenient to Stellenbosch wineries, Hermanus, Cape of Good Hope and Cape Town. Bill, the manager, was so helpful with directions and recommendations. The house is in a gated community and has an alarm system, so safety is secured. Highly recommended!
Tracy, thank you for your kind review and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you found the house to be everything that you had wished for. We look forward to welcoming you back again.
Very best wishes
This is a beautiful house with a gorgeous location and was immaculate when we entered.
However, it should not be rented in winter as there is no functioning central heating. The space heaters provided were inadequate. Due to several glitches we also had no WiFi during our entire stay nor hot water in the kitchen the first evening.
Wait for summer!
Thank you for your review and I am sorry you were not able to find the hot water switch beside the kitchen sink which offers immediate hot water. South Africa can be cold in the evenings during the month of August, and we always advise travellers to South Africa to bring something cozy to wear in the evenings. However, the space heaters that are supplied in the house, have always provided adequate heat in the evenings, but they do need to be run at the correct settings. South Africa does unfortunately suffer a lot of outages, and travellers need to be aware that this can interfere with internet connections. The internet works extremely well, but unfortunately is dependent on a constant power supply. I hope this will not put you off listing again and we are pleased that you found the house great in all other ways.
Heaven on Earth!
Beautiful home in Gordons Bay on False Bay
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time here in a secure residential area along the waterfront of False Bay. The home is spacious, nicely appointed and very functional. Our time here was TOO SHORT!
Proximity to Cape Town, Two Oceans Aquarium, Table Mountain National Park,
Cape Point Nature Reserve and the Cape of Good Hope, the V& A Waterfront and the wine route in the Stellenbosch area were amazing. So much more to see and do!
Hopefully a repeat trip in the future will be possible.
