The Yard has a farm style house and buildings on a spacious property with a beautiful view on the mountain. We speak Afrikaans, English and German. All rooms have their own separate entrance. Free Safe Parking behind locked gates. Pet welcome on prior arrangement. We love to do up-cycling and this is visible everywhere in the rooms and on the property. BITS s a free-standing outside building. It used to be the owner's workshop - from where the name BITS (Bed In The Shed) derives from. He has changed this into an on-suite bedroom, playing with old and new to add to the farm style decor that is clearly visible everywhere on the property. Enough windows (secured with burglar bars) for fresh air. Cosy atmosphere and character....The Yard has a farm style house and buildings on a spacious property with a beautiful view on the mountain.

About the neighborhood
We live in a peaceful, friendly part of Gordon's Bay where neighbours actually greets each other by name. The Yard is 5min walk from the main beach. At the beach you will find a variety of restaurants. We have 2 small shopping centres around the corner, where you will find almost everything you need. We are not on a main road so fortunately there is not a lot of traffic. If you want to venture out a bit, there is a lot of scenic drives and walks in the Helderberg Area.
Getting around
Although there is always a lot of taxis/shuttles available, the best way to get around here is in your own vehicle.
