Marina Da Gama is a peaceful marina near Muizenberg beach and situated on a fresh water estuary, rich with bird-life and is a boating, leisure haven. If you want peaceful, this is it.The big airy house, close to the beach, is ideal for families with a holiday-house vibe, pool, trampoline and jacuzzi. Perfect for lazy outdoor living or for active joggers, surfers and kite surfers.

The space

The house is a metre from the water - wild birds are the only noise, and the house is relaxed, open-plan, airy, bright and super kid-friendly. Owned by a well known wildlife photographer it is an artistic space. There are three bedrooms downstairs and one big upstairs room that can sleep 3 and is great for teens or older folks who want independence and a separate space. This upstairs room has a bathroom and small kitchenette. The upstairs can be used as a separate flat to create dual living. The house perfect for outdoor living and entertaining around the pool. Kids will love the trampoline, jacuzzi and canoes. It is situated in a quiet safe caul de sac.

Guest access

5 Minute drive from the best surfing beach, shops and from the house the canoes and boats can be enjoyed on the water. It is close to restaurants, supermarkets and train access. Easy access to the M5 to town and other attractions.

This is an amazing and beautiful house. The location is perfect if you want to easily access Cape Town's attractions whilst also having some peace and quiet. The host was easy to contact and the house was more than accommodating for our group. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

My family and I spent a few days here at the end of 2016. We had 6 adults in the group and were very happy with the space and the beautiful location. For us it was important to have our own car as it's about 3km to the cafes in Muizenberg and about 30 mins to the waterfront, although we did use uber several times. Jenni kept in touch and answered all our questions in the weeks/months before our stay and facilitated our arrival at 1130pm. Thanks for everything Jenni!

In this family home, we (six guests) felt at home. Already the receipt was so kind that we immediately knew, the decision to come on this place was exactly right. Thank you Veronica! The accommodation is in a safe and well-maintained facility. Generous sun-spoiled property, well taken care of plant with tree existence, grounded entrances and exits. The house is very well equipped. You ll find resting places with a hammock,two sun beds, a sitting area with a charcoal grill, little Pool, fireplace inside, large food table inside and outside, etc,etc.... Twice a week comes a house cleaner for cleaning the house. Thank you Steve! Also the neighbors are very nice. You can go for running or you can explore by kayak the water routes. Good shopping there are locally based, two minutes by car. From Marina Da Gama to CT-Waterfront we drove about 30 minutes. We would definitely stay here again. Best regards from vienna, Markus

Coming to SA for the past 20 years and with family for the last 5 years, I thought I had seen it all. The location Marina da Gama is amazing and Jenni's property is a jewel and the ideal spot for spending one's holidays close to (or on) the cape peninsula. I like in particular: (a) The location is great for families with kids, even for little ones, access to the marina is gated by a door. (b) The Marina da Gama is ideal for exploring the cape peninsula, going into town or just exploring the beach and the little shops facing it. If you come during holiday season, there is not too much traffic outside peak hours, i.e., 60 Minutes to Cape point and approx. 35 Minutes to the Waterfront. (c) The host provides canoes, paddles and live jackets. It is great to explore the marina via water, just while jogging or simply enjoying the view from the front terrace. (d) The pool and trampoline are a great source of amusement for the little ones and last but not least, (e) the local contact, Veronica, is extremely helpful, very responsive, i.e., very nice. It was a pleasure meeting her as well. In summary, this has been the greatest family holiday ever and in large parts this is due to the house and the easy going owners. Thanks a lot for this wonderful time and for letting us into your house, I am looking forward to coming again and again and again....
