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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

This place is fabulous, tucked away in a secure complex. Brilliant spa on site, easy parking and a very short stroll to the seafront with its excellent restaurants (don't miss the Olympia Cafe, it was the best food we had in the whole of CT). It has a very homely feel made us feel comfortable the second we walked in. All the security staff were really helpful and jolly. I would highly recommend this place for those wanting to stay out of the hub of the city yet a perfect place to explore the area.

Lisa and Vaughans house in Kalk Bay is exceptional. It's decorated to such a high standard and the time, effort and passion that has been put into making it a beautiful and comfortable home is clear to see. We loved the fact that it was part of a private complex. The staff and residents were all so friendly. We also managed to make use of the spa during our stay which was just opposite the house. As we have a small baby, we spent most evenings at the house so wanted somewhere which felt like a home. The sofas are very comfy, as are the beds and everything we needed and more was in the house. The location is perfect. Kalk bay is a quirky coastal town which has loads to offer. We loved going for a walk every day down the main rd to try out a new place for breakfast. Lisa was extremely helpful and quick to reply throughout the process. I would highly recommend staying here.

Lisa was fabulous to deal with, offering lots of advice and helping out with booking restaurants. Her home is immaculate with lots of nice touches and designed for comfort and relaxation. It is close to all amenities and only a short drive from Cape Town. We loved it and would recommend it to everyone.....5 star quality!

Our hosts could not have been more welcoming! They met us and showed us around the house, checked wifi, made sure we knew how to work everything - and there was a beautiful welcome basket on the dining room table. The house itself is lovelier than the photos, and immaculate - Lisa's attention to detail is outstanding. The location of nr 8 is perfect - minutes away from a wide selection of restaurants and cafes, from low key to quite smart. The security in the Majestic complex is excellent - and then guards so friendly and helpful. We got chatting to some of the neighbours - great community of lovely people. All in all a wonderful place to stay - can't recommend it enough!

Our family stayed at Lisa's beautiful home for nearly a week. We were so impressed by how wonderfully decorated and perfect everything was. We couldn't fault our stay, it was the nicest rental we have ever had and Lisa was a great host and helped with any questions we had. The location is fantastic and communal areas of pool and gym beautiful with lovely friendly neighbours. We would recommend this place to anyone, perfect for couples, families or friends. We can't wait to come back! Thanks so much Lisa !

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

The neighbourhood
