Tucked away between the main coastal road to Cape Town and the ocean, this tranquil beach cottage is barely three steps away from the soft golden sand of Clifton 4th Beach. Relax to the soothing sound of surf and seagulls while a cool sea breeze stirs the warm ethers and carries the salty tang of the Indian Ocean into the open plan lounge of this quaint 3-bedroom cottage.
Two sliding doors give a view of sand, surf and sea, and lead onto a wooden deck with a table and ten chairs for alfresco meals with friends or family in the shade of the rustic trellis or the two sun umbrellas provided, and a Jacuzzi allows for spontaneous dips in warm bubbles to go with that bottle of bubbly.
The air-conditioned lounge has shabby chic décor, sleek, pale wood floors and a comfy cloth sofa plus two chairs on which to watch Satellite TV or DVD while sipping one of the Cape’s award-winning wines. The 4-seat dining table is the perfect spot for a romantic candlelight dinner while admiring one of the Cape’s stunning sunsets over the sea, or to enjoy a refreshing luncheon, close the blinds and banish the sun.
The kitchen has all the mod cons to make light work of unavoidable chores, including a dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave and cooker. The white-tiled guest bathroom off the lounge has a bath, separate toilet and washing machine, and a tiny backyard provides drying space for washing.
The bedrooms are down a short flight of stairs, and the first bedroom has cool white décor, a double bed and loads of built-in cupboard space. Opposite it is a bathroom with a glass cubicle shower, basin and toilet, tiled in white. The second bedroom boasts a warm cream colour scheme and lots of built-in cupboards. Relax on the double bed and enjoy the view of breakers on the beach through the glass sliding door, or close the blinds for a cool sanctuary from the sun. The master bedroom also has cool pale décor, a double bed and sliding doors that give access to a lush, postage stamp-sized garden whose gate leads directly onto the beach, and the two sun loungers on the patio provide a place to soak up the sun. The en-suite white-tiled bathroom boasts a sizeable corner bath, basin and toilet.
The cottage has an alarm system to ensure the safety of possessions left behind during beach outings or dips in the ocean, as well as a safe for valuables. Parking is on-street, and the secluded location guarantees a restful holiday on the beach, while there is a host of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues just a short drive away in Cape Town or Camps Bay.TripAdvisor property ID 3284970...Read more
