St James tidal pool is diagonally across the street - a short walk down the road. The house has a terraced mountain view and garden behind, and uninterrupted, sweeping sea views in front. The main bedroom, upstairs, as well as the two ground floor rooms face the sea and open out onto lovely sunny decks. We have a large sea facing dining, kitchen, and living room upstairs, which opens out onto the deck furnished with Weber BBQ, lunch table umbrella and loungers.
Our terraced garden has great bird life. Behind us is a forested indigenous mountain. Up the terrace, is our lovely barbecue area which also has a outdoor wood-smoke oven, with wonderful views of the sea. The beauty of this house is also its proximity to Muizenberg's well known surfing beach and the fishing and harbour village Kalk Bay, about 10 minutes' walk away, known for its antique shops, art galleries, restaurants, beach bars and quaint village atmosphere. Our house has two living areas, one upstairs and one downstairs. We have garaging about 100m from the bottom of the stairs. St James tidal pool is a quick stroll down the road, where early morning swimmers gather to catch the morning sun before the crowds arrive. The house is monitored by a private security firm, and the house itself also has excellent security features. (Perimeter beams and alarm.)

Otros aspectos destacables
Linen, bath and beach towels will be provided. Our kitchen is equipped with espresso machine, dishwasher, regular fridge/freezer and wine fridge, and the barbecue area has both a fire pit, a Weber and a wood-fired oven. This house is child friendly but we don't recommend it for toddlers or babies, as the central stairwell has a very airy barrier which is completely safe for adults but not ideal for very young children / toddlers. The house is up a few flights of stairs, unsuitable for very elderly guests or wheelchairs.
Our cleaning lady will service the house twice a week, spruce bathrooms and kitchen, change linen and assist with your laundry (on request) - at a rate to be discussed prior to your arrival.
Indoor plants need watering once a week please. We'd appreciate if you'd take care to lock up when coming and going. The house has excellent security but needs to be locked when you are not at home. There is an alarm system (easy to use) linked to a very fast, efficient armed security response.
Live here like you would at home : ) And please be mindful of municipal water restrictions. Cape Town is having a severe drought and house rules (guided by the municipal rules) are that members of every household are limited to short showers and use of water for cooking, washing and laundry.
Durante el período del 01 de Diciembre de 2017 - 28 de Febrero de 2018 la estancia mínima es de 10 noches.
My husband Ian and I work in design and the creative industries, and we love houses. I've focused much of my career on interiors, having worked with paint decor marketing and as deputy editor for Elle Decoration. Ian and I have renovated several homes. We keep improving it every year, and hope you'll enjoy how it is now. The garden is of course a work in progress, and this year, Ian together with a friend, built a stone woodfire oven in the garden. So if you enjoy that kind of thing, it's a great place to cook, hovering over the sea. It's a home, not an hotel, so you'll see, there's quite a lot of us in here. We stayed with Airbnb hosts in Rome and Venice last year, and loved being able to experience those incredible cities in real homes - and meet the owners. We'd like to try and help you with some personal insights into how to have a really good time in this part of Cape Town.
