Whale Cove Cottage - Watch the ocean from your bed

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

Nestled on the coastal cliffs of Fish Hoek and surrounded by a natural garden the cottage offers breath-taking views across the bay and often you see dolphins and whales frolicking in the waves just below the house.

Fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves and feel completely away from it all in nature while still being in easy reach of all that Cape Town has to offer.

The cottage is within an easy walk to Fish Hoek beach with its crystal clear and warmest water in Cape Town, you can reach central Cape Town in 30 min by car or a picturesque ride in the local train, passing the other coastal towns.

The main bedroom with sea views opens with French doors onto the deck and has a queen-sized bed. The second bedroom, with two single beds, is located in the loft of the living room and is reached via a ladder. There is one bathroom with a shower.

There are BBQ (Braai) facilities in the garden for those summer nights and a cast iron stove for those cuddle up winter nights.

Parking is just outside the property in a secure cul-de-sac.

Your host Uta is happy to help with any advice on the many choices of restaurants, local markets and events in the area or practicalities such as bicycle rent and outdoor activities.

Quaint Chalet with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week long stay at this quaint chalet built 65 steps down from the access road and suspended over the cliff face. It had phenomenal views over the ocean. It is well designed to maximise the scenery, well equipped and comfortable with recently added Wi-Fi being a big bonus.

It provides a good base for touring whether it be to Cape Town or Cape Point or further afield with good road access.

Uta is very responsive to queries and was most helpful during our stay.
