We offer three unique self-contained apartments; the 1 bedroom Merlot and Pinotage Suites, and the 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom Riesling Suite. Each suite is spacious, and stylishly furnished to a very high standard, with double en-suite bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, and comfortable lounges. Each suite has a private entrance with direct access from safe private parking, and has either a private balcony, patio or garden, each with individual barbecue facilities and patio furniture for al fresco dining. Each suite has air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite TV, DVD/CD player and WiFi internet access, as well as many extra luxuries to ensure a comfortable and relaxing holiday. There are private golf lockers for each suite - Highcliffe House Suites are very popular with golfers as there are 5 championship golf courses within 30 minutes drive. The historic Cape Winelands of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek are all within an hour's drive, while the start of the Helderberg Wine Route, with almost 50 top wine estates, is less than 10 minutes away. Central Cape Town is just 45 minutes, and we are only 25 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. The location therefore of this superior Guest House provides the perfect venue for enjoying the many attractions of the Western Cape, while providing a warm friendly ambience in which to enjoy an idyllic vacation, in the luxury of your own comfortable suite and with the flexibility of self-catering without having to worry about any chores. After enjoying the beautiful sights of the area, playing golf, or tasting wine at one of our many superb wine estates, relax by the pool, enjoy a glass of local wine and watch the magnificent sunsets over the Bay, before dining under the stars. Join fellow guests in the bar for a 'nightcap' before retiring to your own comfortable suite at the end of any other perfect day.More

About the neighborhood
Gordon's Bay is a picturesque coastal village, often called the 'jewel of the Western Cape' and still one of the best kept secrets in the area. With safe sandy white beaches, including the Blue Flag Bikini Beach, two harbours on False Bay, Gordon's Bay is also a boating and fisherman's paradise. This quaint seaside village has bars and restaurants to suit all tastes, a 9 hole golfcourse right in the village, bowls, horse riding as well as a number of hiking trails and walking routes. It is the start of the famous 'Whale Coast Route' which follows the spectacular Faure Marine Drive round the coast to Hermanus, and in July to December the Southern Right whales can be seen in False Bay, along with dolphins and sharks - shark cage diving is available nearby, and there are a colony of peng...
How to get there
From Cape Town International airport, follow the N2 motorway towards Somerset West.. Continue along the N2 past the Somerset Mall shopping centre on the right, Somerset West on the left and through Strand (approx. 20 kms). Just before Sir Lowry's Pass, turn right at the traffic light, signposted to Gordon's Bay and Klienmont (R44). Continue along this road (Sir Lowry's Pass road) until just BEFORE the T-Junction at the end, and turn left into Boundary Road (also called Grens Weg). If you are on the road that goes up a hill and turns right with the sea on the right, you have missed the turning to Boundary Road, and are heading to Rooi Els. You will need to turn round at the first opportunity and go back and turn into Boundary Road. Drive up the hill - Boundary Road bears to t...
