About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

An extraordinary house in an extraordinary location. Directly on Blouberg Beach, with nothing between you and the beach other than your own front yard. One of the world's great beaches, with white sand as far as the eye can see. THE view of Table Mountain - the one on all the book covers and post cards - unobstructed and from almost every room in the house. To see the location use Google Earth or Google Maps and paste in coordinates 33 47 39.97S,18 27 27.10E

The house was designed in the 1960's by Revel Fox, South Africa's most renowned architect. It has been in our family from the outset and is considered a South African landmark. Expanded and totally renovated in 2009, we kept the original form while adding a second story over the front part of the house. The Fox firm was also architect/building manager for the expansion.

Inside, the house has been totally renovated, with all new kitchen, all new bathrooms, all new floors, all new everything. Master king suites on both the first and second levels and two additional bedrooms (2xtwin beds, each) downstairs, sleeping 8 in total. Large, fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar. Formal sitting and dining area on the lower level and large family room/TV room on the upper level. 3 full baths and a powder room. 3,000 sq. feet +/-.

The house is furnished and outfitted to a high standard, with such amenities as walnut counter tops, European bath fixtures, Italian marble floors, etc. WIFI (bring your own laptop or rent here) and flat panel TV.

Outside, the property has a large patio area with built-in wood-burning brick BBQ (wood supplied) with seating for 8 and a separate and very private patio/garden out the back, off the lower master suite.

Bloubergstrand is a close-in suburb of Cape Town, lying across Table Bay from the city. You have miles of white sand beach at your doorstep. You are walking distance to great restaurants and upscale shopping. You are 5 minutes to great golf, 15-20 minutes to city center, and 30 minutes to the fabulous beaches at Clifton and Camps Bay, to the sports venues, and the wine routes.

In other words, you are close to everything yet in your own private place with the beach at your front door and that view of Table Mountain to enjoy any time of day. Stunning sunsets over the water.

Many payment options, including credit card, bank transfer (RSA and UK only), wire transfer, check or echeck (USA only). Enquire.

About Marie Faure

Hi, my name is Marie, and I'll be your host during your stay in Blouberg. My husband and I have family roots going back to the origins of South Africa. Chris is a semi-retired grape farmer and we have lived all of our lives inland, in the scenic Breede River Valley. With more time on our hands now we divide our time between Blouberg and the farm. We welcome you to South Africa and are confident you will enjoy your stay while here.

Marie Faure purchased this house in 1960

Why Marie Faure chose Cape Town

The lot was purchased and the house built by my late father-in-law in the 1960's. The location is stunning and anyone visiting the house will quickly see what a remarkable location it is. Miles of white sand beach at your feet, unending views of Table Mountain, with Cape Town nested at its foot, and of Robben Island. Exquisite sunsets over the water. One of only a handful of houses located directly on the beach.

What makes this house unique

Whether you're here on business or pleasure this is a great location for whatever you have in mind to do. Short commute into the city; walking distance to great restaurants and shopping; driving distance to all the pleasures of the Western Cape. If you're young enough, or brave enough, try kite surfing on the beach. Check out the link below to see what I'm talking about. Even if you don't try it it's great entertainment to watch.

Most gorgeous home and location I have ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent in every respect. Has it all. The views are truly exceptional. Could not be closer to the ocean. Walked out on the beach every night to enjoy the sunset. LOved all the restaurants, especially On the Rocks, Ons Huisie and (of course) the Blue Peter. Definitely be back. Thanks, Chris and Marie!

It was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Your house was the perfect venue for our family to all come together for a holiday and to celebrate our dad's 80th birthday! There was lots of space for the 8 of us, the beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms nice and spacious. We made good use of your well-equipped kitchen and the lovely braai area too. And of course none of us could get enough of the view! The house is located so perfectly, right on the beach, and walking distance to the little mall, it was nice not to have to get in the car every time you need some groceries or want to go for a stroll on the beach. We would definitely love to stay there again in the future!

Fantastic seaside home. Lots of space and very

comfortable. Also extremely well stocked with

supplies and basic necessities. We really enjoyed

the beautiful sunsets and the incredible view of

Table Mountain. Home was very conveniently

located to shops and grocery stores. Blouberg

beach was beautiful. We enjoyed the walks along

the beach and watching the windsurfers and kite

surfers.

We look forward to visiting again one day.

What a pleasure! We stayed only for a weekend but everything was there what we needed. The view of Table Mountain and Robben Island is the best. Thank you for a clean house.
