Sunset Rocks Accommodation
Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
Additional Location Information
Sunset Rocks is a small serene coastal residential area of +/- 50 houses on the foot of Little Lionβs Head Mountain situated between Llandudno and the Sandy Bay Nature Reserve. It is on the Atlantic Seaboard 16 Km South West of Cape Town and 5 Km from Hout Bay village. There is no commercial activity, which gives this sanctuary its peaceful atmosphere, free of noise, traffic and pollution. The beaches are clean with soft white sand and refreshing seawater. The area boasts of its low crime rate owing to there being only one entrance into the area and the 24 hour security / medical presence. If you heard that Cape Town has a laid back atmosphere you aint seen nothing until you come and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul in one of the most beautiful places nature has provided. Here you experience the sea, air and sun in its primal state. The rest of the world and its worries become a vague memory after a few days of unwinding here. And if this is not enough then there are all the lures that the fairest Cape has to offer which attracts tourist from all over the world, such as:

What Past Guests Are Saying
Spectacular view, versatile location and comfortable: Highly rec
We were hosting family from Europe and Durban-based friends recommended Sunset Rocks for the CPT leg of our Sa tour. We certainly weren't disappointed: the coastal atlantic view was superb and the accommodation very comfortable. The location in Llandudno (Sandy Bay) is very convenient for multiple peninsula destinations. Ian includes many thoughtful and significant touches for his guests e.g. binoculars, electric plug socket adaptors. Highly recommended ... we'll certainly be back.
Peacefull and breathtaking
We had the privelage of staying here for 3 days. The sunsets were spectacular!! Ian has thought of everything that one needs in self-catering accommodation and anything you have not thought of!! Thanks again for the peaceful stay and not to mention the wallowing in the private swimming pool! We will definately be back!!

We had a first class holiday at Sunset Rocks. The facilities and location were fantastic. Our only problem was leaving after such an amazing time. It's a simple equation...if you're going to South africa, go to Cape Town. If you're going to Cape Town go to Llandudno. If you're going to Llandudno got to Sunset Rocks.
London and the Alps
Fantastic views, tranquillity and lots of bright sunshine
If, like me, you are looking for fantastic views, tranquillity and lots of bright sunshine Sunset Rocks is the perfect location. As an author I prefer to be left to get on with writing and the remote location of this accommodation is just right. It is comfortable and has everything I need with a friendly, unobtrusive couple who run it. I am also a bit of a hobby photographer and if you want to see some of the pictures I have taken from this base just put Chris Duggleby into your search engine and then look into my africa gallery. All the shots of Llandudno, Sunset Rocks and Sandy Bay were taken within walking distance from the accommodation. As they say a picture can say more than a thousand words!
At one of the most beautiful coastlines on Earth
We discovered this little piece of heaven some years ago. Since then we are coming back regularly every year to stay at Ian's stunning place. The place is refreshingly down-to-earth in the rather posh area of Llandudno. Ian is a great host. Sunset Rocks is the ideal place to seek rest from the hustle and bustle. The sun deck is amazing, sunsets are breathtaking and it's simply wonderful listening to the waves rolling in. Upon leaving we're already looking forward to our next stay.
An outstanding start to a South african holiday
Sunset Rocks looked great from the website but the experience itself was beyond expectations. The location is stunning, and ideal for so much - staying put (lovely sea and sky views from open decks), wandering down to the beach, accessing the city and exploring the peninsula. The ambience of the accommodation was just right, and the standard of equipment provided was thoughtful and way above average for a self-catering unit. Communication by the owner is top-notch, but level of independence during our stay was ideal. Friends who visited us there were amazed. We have already made a second booking and recommended Sunset Rocks to others.
San Francisco, California, USA
World Cup Dream Trip
The three of us traveled from San Francisco and Los angeles, California for the World Cup games in Cape Town. This accomodation was ideally located just a short drive (aproximately 25 minutes) and was well worth it. The drive (a car is a necessity) itself along the coast and the view from this apartment are breath-taking. The apartment was clean and very quiet. The view from the apartment deck is nothing short of stunning. The propieter (Ian) was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this accomodation to anyone traveling to the Cape Town area.

Very comfortable and great location
Great location, comfortable and clean.Have stayed 4 times and will return again.
It is our eden
Ian is a star when it comes to creating a homely atmosphere and his service and concern for one's well-being is par excellence. His welcome and settling one in is so good. Everything required and more is offered with genuine hospitality and the flat is a reflection of this. The view is therapeutic and one can fall in love here several times a day (sigh). Food for the soul, I tell you! We find it perfectly located for all the attractions that Cape Town can offer. However, as great as everything is, there is one thing that I hate about this place, and that is having to pack up and leave! Dammit!
The perfect spot for cape holiday
A glorious spot, with the best sea views and sunsets; beach at your doorstep , a splendid large deck , use of pool , and right between Houtbay and Cape Town , close to Constantia winefarms , what more could you ask for . The appartment is small but confortable, with 3 small bedrooms, stayed twice , would have been 3 times in 3 years, but unfortenately, was booked out already . Favourite with many people !
