8 Middedorp is our quaint holiday home based in an exclusive security Estate in the heart of the eclectic sea side hamlet of Kalk Bay, Cape Town.
Our home is decorated in cool tones of blue and white, and adorned with special pieces to create an environment as beautiful as its surroundings. After a busy day of basking on the beach, soaking up the sun in one of the nearby tidal pools, or sipping on a cocktail at one of the many nearby restaurants, retire to our haven to replenish your soul.
Our home is situated in the center of an upmarket security complex called the Majestic. It is a stand alone little home of approximately 136m2. The downstairs is open plan with a large fully fitted kitchen and scullery, dining room and lounge opening onto a private courtyard. A back entrance leads down a staircase to a private parking bay for your use.
The two bedrooms are situated upstairs and are both en-suite.
We offer a meet and greet service so you will be welcomed to our home, by one of our loyal ladies, who will show you around and give you an overview of the apartment.
Access is through a security check point and all guests will be required to provide proof of Identity and booking. Security will show you to our parking which is yours to use throughout your stay. In busy Kalk Bay parking on the road is at a premium and everything is in within walking distance so our advise is to walk where ever possible unless you are leaving town for an outing.
This accommodation is self catering, however we will ensure you have a few essentials to start you off, until you are able to stock up on amenities. In the unit is a comprehensive file of where to shop, eat and suggested hidden gem things to do!
Interaction with guests
Once you have been shown the ropes you will be given the keys to our home and we are invisible hosts allowing you to relax and enjoy your stay, unless of course there are any unsolvable problems. Our condensed file of guest information has step by step instructions for all the equipment, emergency contact numbers and loads of recommendations.
As our guest in a secure complex, which is home to most other owners, you will be bound to the basic house rules which are in place for your own security, sanctuary and well being.
Other things to note
Kalk Bay is Cape Towns hidden gem in our humble opinion! It is where the locals go to re-charge and refresh. It is the perfect place to stay in Cape Town -just far enough from the madding crowds. It's charm and character will capture your heart and we hope to see you as a returning guest and friend after your first visit.
All we ask is that you treat our special places as you would your own.
* We are not a party house!
* We are sadly not kiddie friendly as fabrics are white and tables are glass. So unfortunately no children under 12 years of age. The complex is not designed for children as it is a spa sanctuary so please be aware before you book for a family as it is a quite serene environment with little or no play area.
* Strictly non smoking throughout the house or in the internal courtyard
* Strictly for a maximum of 4 guests in 2 bedrooms.
Who we are...
I am an interior designer married to Vaughan for 26 (eeeeeek) years! He is a property developer and a professional interior photographer in-between and so we love attention to detail, beautiful spaces and of course travelling for inspiration. We have two beautiful daughters who you may even get to meet if we are not in town, as they are my left and right arms (and are 'mini me's' when it comes to attention to detail!)
Where we live....
We are blessed to be able to live between our two beautiful homes and travel extensively in South Africa and abroad, to wherever Vaughan's photography takes us, giving us the opportunity to experience new cultures, and off the beaten path places.
Why you will love our homes....
Our homes are our havens - filled with love and special things, and we believe it will be the same for you!
If you become a guest....
We treat our guests as we do our friends, and ensure your stay is nothing less than 'fabulous' so that you return and remain our friends for life.
How Airbnb has changed our lives......
We joined the Airbnb family last year and since then have been blessed with the most incredible guests! I never imagined that we would meet such interesting people from all over the world and form such wonderful friendships by sharing our home!
What we love....
Family, Friends, FOOD! and ........wine
