Villa in Noordhoek, Cape Town, South Africa - Amazing Views Of Chapmans Peak, Peaceful Location Surrounded By Nature Reserve, Short Drive To Beach
Modern detached lakeside villa, near to Ou Kaapse Weg, surrounded by a peaceful nature reserve set in a secure development. Private jetty for fishing or use of boat. Private pool 7 x 3.5m, with pool cover, outdoor eating area with Weber BBQ. The villa is a 30 minute drive from Cape Town with its many attractions, 40 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from Constantia wine areas and only away minutes from the start of the famous drive around Chapmans Peak towards Hout Bay, part of the well known Argos cycle race held in March. Westlake and Steenberg Golf Club are 15 minutes drive over Ou Kaaps Weg and Clovelly Golf club is nearby. Noordhoek is surrounded by gorgeous beaches - some wild and some ideal for family swimming (Fish Hoek), Kommetjie beach is a surfers paradise and great walks. Noorhoek village which is 5 minutes drive has some lovely restaurants and quirky gift shops. In the opposite direction is the long beach mall, great for food shopping and general goods. Non smoking.
We have 3 bedrooms - the main bedroom with ensuite bathroom and reaching views across the lake and patio doors leading out to the pool. The second bedroom is a very large twin room with plenty of space to put blow up beds for children with again - far reaching views across the lake and its own patio doors into the garden.
the third bedroom is a smaller twin room but still a good size. The family bathroom accommodates the second and third bedroom.
This property would suit two families with children but not eight adults.
The rest of the property is open planned with plenty of light and lots of room to find a quiet spot.
We have high speed internet fibre connection - a must for today's holiday makers.

About the Owner
About Trish Allen
It's now been 5 years since we bought our beautiful house in Noordhoek and have so enjoyed letting it to so many wonderful people from all around the world - as far as Australia and America and all over Europe and of course around the UK. As we are in full swing in our 2016/2017 season, we hope our new guests, and our returning guests have really enjoyed what we have had to offer and I hope you have enjoyed our little piece of paradise as much as we do! The South African pace of life, the food, the climate and value for money. Not forgetting of course the spectacular scenery!
As I write this in April - the temperature is still in the high 20's and even got to 30 yesterday! So why not think about visiting in April or May - its the Cape's best kept secret.
Look forward to welcoming you and for our repeat guests welcoming you back again.
Trish Allen purchased this villa in 2012
Why Trish Allen chose Cape Peninsula
See for yourself!......and you will understand why.
What makes this villa unique
The property is light and open plan with all views heading out to the lake and beyond, towards the mountains. The villa is situated on a bird sanctuary, so many species to view and enjoy. It is modern and clean, tiled throughout. It feels fresh and very relaxing. Unlike other properties, it has the lake view and private jetty. It was built in the last 12 years with such thought to making the most of the location. The lay out of the house is exceptional with the communal rooms in the centre of the house and bedrooms on either side, making space and privacy for those who wish to 'get away' from the others on occasions! There are fans in the bedrooms and air conditioning in the main lounge and master bedroom, wi fi connection so your not too far away from the rest of the world if you have to!

A Great Location for a Family Holiday
From the pictures and description we hoped this would be a beautiful location for our family holiday in the Cape. It was absolutely wonderful. Noordhoek is well located to drive to Cape Town or to Simonstown and Cape Point either using the stunning Chapman's Peak toll road or the Pass. Both are relatively short but beautiful drives with seemingly minimal traffic; compared to Nairobi where we came from it was traffic paradise. The area has an excellent shopping centre with a large Checkers and Pick n Pay within 5 mins. The estate is safe, has a lovely lake and all the houses well positioned to avoid looking at each other. The view from the house is towards the mountains - the best side. Cape Wine Vineyards and the Food Barn nearby were lovely for food but you are well situated for the whole Cape peninsula. The house was very comfortable and the pool super for our children. Main bedroom and 2nd bedroom lovely for views, the 3rd bedroom has two single beds and is fine, albeit no view. The kitchen is well equipped. Finally, the canoe is a great extra that really makes you use the Lake, there are plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. Trish's sister lives round the corner and provided very good and discrete support if needed. A perfect base in the Cape Peninsula.
Super house in a super location!
This house is fantastic and one which I could actually live in very happily! The location is central with easy access to beaches, Cape Point, Chapman's Peak and the shopping mall is just around the corner. The excellent security is reassuring without compromising on privacy. The owners were welcoming and easy to deal with. The kitchen is well kitted out so we braaied on the Weber most evenings. The pool was clean and surprisingly warm. The view of the mountain is spectacular over the lake and the outdoor dining area well sheltered so it was lovely to sit out and relax in the evening even after dark. The house was clean, well-maintained and the wifi worked. We can't wait to go back!

great villa extremely well maintained and equipped will stay there again, because of layout well suited to 2 couples
Fantastic spacious villa
Wow - was the response when the family members came in the front door and had a look around! I had booked this villa for a family reunion of 5 siblings, where 3 couples stayed here, while the other 2 stayed down the road where my sister lives. It was ideal - everything one could need was in place, clean, ready to enjoy, including several good books!
The welcome from Joan was warm, friendly and helpful. It was great to be able to feed a crowd without running out of plates and cutlery! Too often self-catering places only have just enough dishes for the number of beds - so 10/10 for providing so generously that we could serve 12 people at a meal with no trouble.
The weather did not encourage us to use the pool, except on our last day. And time only allowed for one kayak excursion.
The local nursery has a lovely cafe - worth a visit. And further afield, Cape Point Ostrich Farm has a unique restaurant. Walking on the Noordhoek beach was most enjoyable.
Our 4 days were soon over - would highly recommend this property for families. A great location for relaxing or exploring the beautiful Cape peninsula.
It is the first time i have booked a villa and it actually exceeded it's description.
The wow factor when you walk in is wonderful. The views, the pool,everywhere i looked was private. Perfection.
The house is stunning, both in design and decor but still maintains a homely feel. Everything you would need for a comfortable stay.
I so enjoyed being able to entertain family and friends for a change instead of it always being the other way around.
Shops, car hire,restaurants and the Gym are all within 5 mins by car. The pretty Noordhoek village is close by, where, we went to eat most days. It was very reassuring to have Joan and Ernie on hand to help if we needed it and nothing is too much trouble. We were so comfortable i really enjoyed the days when we just stayed in and relaxed. The beach is beautiful and also close by. We were so impressed we have booked for 8 weeks next year.
Fantastic Holiday in Noordhoek
As soon as you enter the front door you see this property has class.
It had everything we needed, with the views across the lake to the mountain beyond quite special. We would have loved to return in 2017 but it was already booked on our dates. We can thoroughly recommend it and hope to return sometime.

Noordhoek beach is a wild walking beach with some surfing and ideal for horse riding. The water on this side of the peninsular is cold. For the energetic, you can enjoy the long beach and Kakapo shipwreck walk from Noordhoek to Kommetjie. Fish Hoek is an ideal swimming beach where the water is warmer as it is on the Indian ocean side. Sharks have been spotted here but there are several shark spotters in the area. Boulders beach to see the penguins is a must for the young families.
