About our home

This has been our holiday home for about 23 years and has grown with our family and our needs. It has been extended to maximise views all around to the lovely mountains and sea. Our family have done one successful exchange with people from Slovenia and it was a very positive experience for us, so we are looking forward to our next exchange.
We also have a two bedroom apartment in Cape Town (CBD), against Table Mountain with lovely views which could also form part of an exchange.


More about us

  1. Our family consists of Gideon and Christina with our three adult children, our daughter, Jani (28), our son FC (25) and our youngest daughter, Anke, aged 21. We love reading, going to the movies and anything concerning food - cooking, eating out, having friends over for dinner or just talking about good food, wine and coffee! O and of course we love to travel and still try to do it together despite our different schedules. Jani is an architect, FC an industrial engineer and Anke a student in her final year in BA Media and Writing, with Eng and France as her two other majors. Gideon is an attorney, specialising in conveyancing and I myself work part time at the Stellenbosch University. Our family have been to quite a few parts of Europe and the UK and all three of the children did exchange programs to Europe - the eldest two to Germany and Anke to France.

Where is it?


Gordons Bay is a small idyllic seaside town on the Eastern edge of False Bay in the Western Cape, in the popular, picturesque region of Helderberg, and the winelands.
It is well located, just 25 minutes from Cape Town Airport and 40 minutes from the famous "mother City of Cape Town".
It is on the fringe of the Stellenbosch wine route which starts in Somerset West, 10 minutes drive from Gordons Bay, whilst Strand shares the coastline. To the south, over Sir Lowry's pass, about 30 minutes drive, is Hermanus, famous for Whale watching.
Our house is situated in the old part of town, just two streets away from the main beach and about 10 minutes walk from Bikini Beach (Blue Flag beach). There are lots of restaurants and a wonderful second hand bookstore where we spend many an hour browsing through all their books! Helderberg Nature Reserve are also nearby if you feel like a walk in nature.
Good restaurants and shopping facilities are in the immediate vicinity.
