About our home

Due to the drought we are experiencing in the Western Cape, we have decided not to make our property available until after the Winter rains have brought some drought relief (hopefully). Our winter rains normally start May-June. The next available swap or points swap would be Xmas / New Year 2018.

Our home is in Sea Point, just a few kilometers west of the main business district and just a few metres below the slopes of Signal Hill. The famous Sea Point promenade, with it's walkers, joggers and cyclists is a short walk away as is the Green Point Park. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance and it's only a short Uber, or a 30 minute walk, to the Waterfront - one of Cape Town's major tourist destinations. The beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay are minutes away. Hout Bay is just up the coast within a 30 minute drive. You can also visit the vineyards of Constantia or venture further out to Stellenbosch or Franschhoek. The hop on, hop off bus stops in Sea Point.

Our modern, open plan, sunny, north facing home spans 3 floors with views out to Sea and the Cape West Coast. We have lived here since 2009 with our two kids, now teenagers. It's full of books, bikes, skateboards, wetsuits (the water is cold on the Atlantic seaboard), body boards, playstation, Xbox and all the ingredients to make a fun stay for kids.

Floor 1
This is our recently renovated teen pad with an open plan lounge and bedroom, plus bathroom and shower.

Floor 2
This is our main living area consisting of open plan kitchen with breakfast bar, air conditioned family/TV room and a large open plan lounge opening out onto a patio, pool and braai (barbeque) area. This level also has an additional bedroom with en-suite bathroom that also doubles as a laundry.

Floor 3
Large main bedroom with superb views over the Atlantic Seaboard, air-conditioned, en-suite bathroom with shower and bath and separate dressing room. Second bedroom, air conditioned, with en-suite bathroom, bath and shower. Study/office with air conditioning.

Wifi
We have 100Mbs fibre, uncapped internet, Satellite TV, Netflix and Showmax.

Safety and security
Sea Point is a safe part of Cape Town but like most South African houses the house has an alarm and beams linked to a security company.
