Bloubergstrand has a long white sandy beach on the Atlantic ocean, with a few rocky outcrops where black mussels are found. The water is cold due to the cold Benguela Current but the beach is popular with surfers. The bay on the west side of Bloubergstrand, known as 'Big Bay' has become a very popular kite surfing spot due to the constant trade winds bringing a 1-3m surf for a majority of the year. Big Bay Beach is also well known for the ease with which White Mussels (a species of the family Donax) can be extracted from the sand by a process locally known as 'jiving'.

Other Activities: Kite-surfing

James family from Wales and Yorkshire

  • 5 of 5

I looked at about 100 properties for an 11-week stay during August in Cape Town and nothing quite matched the stunning location and level of comfort offered at Wind Rose. We needed a property for 12 family members in Cape Town for a wedding and Wind Rose suited us perfectly. The stand out features include the remarkable view offered in the living areas and six (of seven) bedrooms. It is, in every sense, breath-taking; large crashing waves with Robben Island and Table Mountain both in view. Two large living areas were very lovely(one tv and one for photography and talking). Two large garages were also useful. The kitchen was very well equipped (great cooker, fridge, washing machine etc) and really easy to use. The bedrooms were very well appointed as were the bathrooms. The dining area was most impressive (in keeping with the house) and yet like everything in the house, easy to look after. The beaches all wonderful for walks and photographs. Very helpful to have On the Rocks restaurant next door with cake shop near also. The Bayside shopping centre provides the wonderful Checkers supermarket - also a dentist surgery (they saved the day with an emergency tooth extraction) , chemist, florist, wine store... The location is great and easy to drive to and from the centre of Cape Town and yet also escape across country. I cannot praise the staff highly enough. Property manager Emma is excellent as is the wonderful housekeeper Connie whom we loved and was so, so helpful and great fun also. We were here in Winter month, so are unable to report on the little swimming pool but it looked nice. All my dealings with the owners were very cordial and efficient. One or two automatic HomeAway emails were a bit distracting... but other than this, Wind Rose is the most wonderful house we have every stayed in and as a family we have been roaming the world for 22 years. This combines homeliness and luxury, practicality with art works, comfort with efficiency of use. I cannot praise it highly enough. Thanks for making it SUCH a memorable holiday.

Heaven on Earth!!!

  • 5 of 5

Whow whow whow. That is what comes to my mind. Words cannot describe The Windrose. We were a family with adult kids and we spend 3 glorious days at The Windrose.

Everything was just perfect for us. There are enough space for everyone to have his or her privacy if needed. The rooms were beautiful and they have the most amazing views over the bay on Table Mountain. The en suite bathrooms are very comfortable and all towels and linen are exceptionally good quality.

Emma and Conney were very helpful and kind and made you feel welcome from the start.

I will recommend the Windrose to everyone that wants to come and experience Cape Town. It is very well situated and close to the restaurants and shops.

You really dont have to hire a car. Make use of Uber.

Thanks Virginia for your kindness and an unforgettable stay.

Wow, an amazing home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the website do not do this home justice.

Every person in our group was delighted by the property from the minute we walked in. The home is beautifully and tastefully decorated The attention to detail was noticeable, I particularly liked the fresh flowers, so thoughtful. There were basic supplies to keep us going until we were able to get to a shop. The property is a home rather than a house, everything we needed, and more, was there.

The location right on the beach was superb and having a decent restaurant right next door proved useful. If you're too lazy too make your own coffee in the morning you can simply go next door to the 'hole in the wall' for a decent cappuccino or espresso!

The staff were charming and accommodated all our needs.

I hope that we can return in the not too distant future to enjoy a glass of good South African wine while sitting on the outdoor patio, fire blazing and waves crashing against the rocks!
