Gordons Bay Guest House offers an oasis of calm in the stunning Helderberg region. Situated on a glorious False Bay mountain slope with breathtaking views of the sea and the world famous Table Mountain, with its Mediterranean style and African vibe, this enchanting secret of the sub continent is also home to arguably the world's best sunsets. Described by many as "not merely a guest house, but a real home from home", this South African tourist board accredited 4 Star establishment, is the perfect venue for couples, families and honeymooners alike.
The seven-bedroom guest house offers a particularly welcoming atmosphere and is incomparably charming. Hotel owners Jim and Christine Whitehall and Joy Malin will be on hand to assist with your every need and inevitable holiday questions. Guests are invited to spend some quiet time in one of the two comfortable lounges equipped with a terrace, wood fire, and a bar. In addition, the second floor provides a majestic sea and mountain view across the bay - the perfect hideaway to indulge in sun worshipping life. The swimming pool and its small surrounding fountains in the garden provides a wonderful place to cool down, while for non water babies the sun loungers offer the perfect spot to relax in style.
South Africa is home to some of the worlds finest beaches. Within walking or driving distance, kilometres of beach invite you to relax, sail, surf or for the adventurous, shark cage dive. From August through to October the Southern Right whale makes its grand entrance into False Bay, providing holidaymakers and locals the chance to view these quite magnificent creatures from the coastline itself. The region is one of only two places on earth where one can witness these awe-inspiring creatures from land, and sightings from the guest house balcony are common.
One can also easily reach several must-see attractions such as the well-known wine region of Stellenbosch, Constantia and Franschhoek, Table Mountain National Park, the Cape of Good Hope; Cape Town city centre. The Gordons Bay beaches, restaurants, and bars are only a few minutes' walk away and the seaside village also boasts two working harbours, home to a number of fine yachts and sailing crafts. For golfing enthusiasts, the Helderberg region provides a number of world-class courses whilst the guest house is able to loan out a range of golfing equipment to their guests by request.
Gordons Bay is only 25 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and is perfectly situated to explore the surrounding mountains and breathtaking scenery of a region described by Sir Francis Drake as "the fairest Cape of them all".
