Additional information
The apartment offers the best of both worlds - nature on your doorstep and the city centre just a short drive away. Enjoy gorgeous views across the valley and to the ocean. We live upstairs in our own place so you won't find our mess in your cupboards. The place is spacious and super-clean. Most of the time we do holiday rentals when we don't have a longer-term tenant. We like to exchange on a guest-point basis rather than a simultaneous house-swap. Its not easy for us to get away at the same time as guests come here. Nearby beaches of white sand and calm tidal pools offer some of Cape Town’s best swimming. Horse-riding, hiking, surfing, whale-watching, shark-diving, fishing, diving and outstanding scenic drives are nearby. The Winelands, Table Mountain, Cape Point, The Waterfront, Robben Island, Cape Town Stadium, Boulders penguins, Chapman’s Peak, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the famous restaurants and bars of trendy Kalk Bay fishing village are a short drive. Clovelly golfcourse is just next door - Simon’s Town, Westlake and Steenberg golfcourses are just 10 minutes drive. Clovelly sits on the mountainside between Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek, hiding from the summer wind behind a little hill called Trappieskop. A short walk takes you down to the north side of the sheltered bay, popular with hobie-cat sailors and sea-kayaks. The Fish Hoek end is one of the city’s most popular beaches, with families taking advantage of the gently sloping sandy beach and people strolling along the Cat-Walk, a trail built into the rocky edge of the bay. This is one of the best spots for watching the whales in season. Southern Rights come to mate and calve in the warm currents from July to October. A 20 minute drive along the coast takes you to the Cape Point reserve where you can experience the rugged beauty of the city’s southern tip and get a sense of the diversity of the region’s main vegetation type - the fynbos - which is responsible for a large part of the western cape being declared the world’s 7th floral kingdom. Heading west out of the reserve takes you along one of the country’s most scenic drives, taking in Scarborough and Misty Cliffs, Kommetjie and Noordhoek’s Long Beach and Chapman’s Peak to Hout Bay. The Table Mountain National Park spreads across the peninsula from the city centre to the southernmost tip. The Park gives the city a very special character, providing a playground for hiking, caving, abseiling, paragliding and rock-climbing, as well as a perfect venue for picnics.
