About Melkbos Beach Cottage
Melkbos Beach Cottage is situated in Melkbosstrand which is regarded as the start of the ever-growing Cape West Coast. Melkbosstrand is a favourite with locals and offers hours of beach strolling, surfing, sunsets to put most sunsets to shame, and the much photographed view of Table Mountain and Robben Island.
The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen and an open-plan dining and lounge area; there is a four-seater table that leads onto the balcony. There are two bedrooms; the main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has two single beds. There is also a sleeper couch and a full bathroom with a bath and shower. The balcony boasts lovely views of Table Mountain and Table Bay.
Melkbosstrand is nonetheless an ideal and extremely pretty base from which to explore both Cape Town and the West Coast, particularly as the Durbanville Winelands are close by. The Boland Mountains offer a number of wonderful day trips through valleys hung with vines and mountains looming in the background.
