Rental Home
A newly renovated, bright, sunny 3 bedroom house including 2 loft areas all with superb views of False Bay and the Helderberg Mountains. Open plan living with views of the bay from the kitchen through to the patio with a built in BBQ. The house has a double garage. It is a short walk to the beach, as well as great restaurants to enjoy freshly caught seafood. An amazing house to relax and unwind and enjoy. The property is located within 40km from Cape Town International Airport. This is a 3 bedroom house, however, the back loft area can be used for sleeping and comfortably fits a fold out couch. The front loft is also a fun space to relax and also can fit 2 airbeds or mattresses for extra people. This would be an ideal house for families over the holiday periods.

The Master bedroom has a king size bed and its very own private walk in dressing room and wardrobes as well as its own luxurious bathroom with a very room shower and tub. Bedroom 2 and 3 both have comfortable queen size beds and built in wardrobes. They both share the second bathroom with their own entry doors. The second bathroom also boasts a wonderful shower and tub to relax in after a day in the sun. All bedrooms are fitted with a 40 inch Samsung Smart TV with wifi available for Netflix viewing or browsing the internet. The living room also has a 55 inch Samsung Smart TV with wifi. While preparing food in the wonderfully designed kitchen you will not miss the sun setting over the bay. The kitchen has a fantastic Smeg oven and gas hob, side by side Grundig Fridge and Freezer, microwave, LG coffee machine and soda stream maker. And to hide away those dirty dishes the scullery sits outside the kitchen where you will find a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer if required. The house is also fitted with security shutter blinds and an alarm system. For larger groups there is also the added option of booking the self contained flat located at the bottom of the property. Please contact me or see On the Bay Retreat's Seaside Flat for more information. More
