In the heart of the Cape Peninsula, Clovelly is a quiet neighbourhood nestled between sandstone mountains in the Fish Hoek Valley. The Silvermine River wetland area, a few metres away, is of interest for bird lovers, and is home to many species of frogs, the endangered leopard toad, buck, porcupines, caracal, and the Cape clawless otter.
The beach, 500 metres down the road, has safe swimming and decent waves for body surfing, and is one of Cape Town’s favourite family beaches. Life savers are on duty during December and January.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Great Place to Stay
We were looking with my wife at many options to stay in Cape Town and than we found Maison Mosaic in Clovelly. Good price and a great place. We stayed two weeks there. Very nice laid back community located walking distance to the beach between Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek. The house is located literally next to the Silvermine National Park, so if you are a climber or enjoy nature walks you can start your walk directly from the house and walk for breakfast lunch or dinner to Kalk Bay through the mountain trail. The apartment is furnished in a very charming way with a personal touch, that makes you feel right away at home. Penny works as a professional guide for South africa tours and she can give many insights and recommendations about the area. Also she is a mosaic artist (hence name: Maison Mosaic) and you can enjoy her work in the apartment. The living room has plenty of sun and a view on the montain and the deck is very enjoyable to chill out. The place is very clean and sheets and towels changed once a week. Over all we had a great stay and would definitely come back.
Home away from home...
We were warmly welcomed by the owner and her lovely dogs. The accommodation is exactly as described on the internet. It is decorated beautifully and very cozy. We especially liked the mosaic art and the wooden deck, where we could sit and have breakfast, beers or glass of wine. The beach, stores, restaurants and harbor are within walking distance, which is perfect on a hot day when there can be lots of traffic. This also gave us plenty reason not to cook. What we did not expect, is that the accommodation is serviced. We were pleasantly surprised to walk into a freshly vacuumed/cleaned apartment. We will definitely be contacting Penny for our next trip to Cape Town.
The place is very nice, well located (close to Kalk Bay and town centre), there are all kind of facilities inside,the only thing was missing is TV connection(not really important, we just like to watch news...). We reccomend it for people who looks for confortability, accessibility for all interesting points arount and reasonable budget.
A very bright and tastefully furnished accommodation.
Total nice landlords. Tim and Penny gave us lots of useful information.
The property is located between Kabelbay and Fish Hoek, so you can achieve both good places to walk. The street is quiet. Herbs are harvested in Penny´s Garden. Thank you, we would come back.
Eine wunderschöne kleine mit sehr viel Geschmack und Liebe der Eigentümerin eingerichtete Wohnung mit seperaten Eingang zum Haupthaus. Das Wohnzimmer ist ein sehr sonniger Raum im Obergeschoß. Hier kann man gemütlich auf der Couch in der Sonne sitzen, lesen, den Vögeln im Garten lauschen oder einfach nur die Ruhe genießen.bzw. man setzt sich auf den kleinen Balkon über den Garten.
Die kleine Küche bietet alles was man als Selbstversorger benötigt.
Fernab vom Verkehr und Massentourismus kann die Wohnung als idealer ausgangspunkt für schöne Wanderungen in die unmittelbar vor der Tür liegende Flusslandschaft und Berge sowie zum ca. 400 Meter entfernt liegenden Strand genutzt werden.
Auch das Zentrum von Fish Hoek ist in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar, wo man viele kleine Geschäfte und schöne Restaurants findet.
Die Vermieterin hat viele interesannte Tipps und Ideen für ausflüge und Unternehmungen in der Umgebung parat und war jederzeit für uns da.
Die Wohnung ist ideal für Unternehmungen rund ums Kap und Kapstadt und nach den Touren kann man dort gut entspannen und nocheinmal alles geniessen.
Wir haben hier drei wunderschöne Tage verbracht und können die Unterkunft nur allen empfehlen die Ruhe und Individualität zu schätzen wissen.
lovely stay in Maison Mosaic
We had a wonderful stay for 13 days in Maison Mosaic. We felt very much at home straight away specially after having travelled through South africa before and seeing a lot of other inferior accommodations. It's lovely decorated, clean and comfortable.
The area is very quiet and well located for every kind of activity and just down the road for us one of the best beaches to swim around there. Its very close to Kalk Bay which has fantastic restaurants and shops.
The owners are a lovely couple which helped us out with any question we had and had many useful tips for the area.
We will definitley come back here on our next trip to South africa.
