Perched on rocks with one of the best views in Cape Town lies The Beach House.

Sit in the garden and take in the full length of the Llandudno beach. Beyond the rocks, Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 18 years, can be seen. Closer to home, from September to November, Southern Right Whales visit the Bay-watch out for long, black shapes or listen for their blows. Keep your eyes peeled and you might also see schools of dolphins chasing pilchards or seals playing in the surf.

The Beach House is not overlooked and there are few more private locations in the area. The house is situated at the end of a quiet road with shade and privacy provided by the mature trees surrounding the house (including a prolific lemon tree for that essential Gin and Tonic.) Parking is also shaded and off-road.

Access to the beach is a 5 minute walk down the hill with a more energetic return! Alternatively you can take the car round to the small car park. Visitors to the house are also welcome to use the Llandudno tennis court for a small extra charge. Remember to bring your own racquets.
