Highcliffe House offers 3 stylish and very spacious self-catering luxury apartments. The Merlot and Pinotage Suites each have one large double bedroom with full en-suite bathroom. The Riesling Suite has 2 double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. All 3 apartments have large open plan fully fitted modern kitchens / dining areas and comfortable lounges. All of the suites have their own private barbecues, and access to the heated swimming pool, sun terrace and 'honesty' bar. These beautiful serviced suites are tastefully furnished and fully equipped, including free WiFi internet access, satellite TV, air conditioning, log fires and many extras to ensure a comfortable stay. Situated on the mountainside overlooking the picturesque seaside village of Gordon's Bay on the coast of False Bay, Highcliffe House provides panoramic sea and mountain views and is central for all of the attractions of the Western Cape. Highcliffe House has FOUR STAR Grading by the Tourist Grading Council of South Africa, and we are confident that we will meet the needs of the most discerning guests.

With safe and sandy beaches, two harbours providing a wide choice of water sports, Gordon's Bay is also the start of the Helderberg Wine Route and the Whale Coast Route. There are 5 championship golf courses within a half hour's drive, over 50 wines estates nearby, and a wide selection of restaurants of all types. Cape Town International Airport is just 15 minutes away, and central Cape Town us just 30 minutes. Highcliffe House in Gordon's Bay is the perfect place for that special 'home from home' holiday.

Good location on the hillside with nice views across the bay to the Cape peninsula. The rooms are well furnished and the kitchen is full of all the utensils that will be required. The pool is a little small but adequate for cooling down.More
