“An ideal home away from home.... set in a gorgeous location.”
Reviewed 6 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

It was our second visit to Highcliffe House and was as wonderful as the first. Hosts Jane & Jim are caring and very interesting people. The personal touches in the Riesling suite are charming - everything decorated beautifully. It is also splotlessly clean and very comfortable. The surrounding areas are fantastic .... Gordon's Bay, the nearby winelands and Cape Town itself are world-class holiday attractions. A worthwhile choice ... probably the best I've stayed in, in this area!!

“Excellent accomodation and hospitality”
Reviewed 25 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Fantastic accomodation with magnificent views over False Bay and the mountains. The unit is extremely comfortable and well fitted out with all the furniture and applicances one would normally have in one's own home.
Whilst we did not have the opportunity to meet Jane as she was away at the time, Jim was a very hospitable and interesting host and we would have liked to have spent more time drinking wine and chatting to him.
Will definitely be spending more holidays at this lovely property in the future

“ble Mountain vies with the comfort and beauty of the appartment”
Reviewed 14 September 2011 for a stay in February 2010

We have stayed in the Riesling Suite three times ,over three consecutive years, and each time something more has been added to what, in our view, was already perfection. The decor is delightful, the thoughtfulness and attention to detail of everything that was provided was incredible , the comfort was sublime and the charm and helpfulness of the Yeomans helped to make each stay a special experience. We certainly hope to return many times.All praise to the Yeomans for keeping their standards, (not to mentions their spirits!) so high during these difficult times.
Furthermore, the situation is convenient for trips to the Stellenbosch Wine area, and an easy run into Cape Town itself.
The beaches at Gordons Bay and adjoining Strand are wonderful for long walks.
