Sunset on the Rocks lives up to its name. Our property is set on a very steep site amongst huge granite boulders and the unique Cape fynbos forms the lower section of the garden. We enjoy spectacular sunsets over the sea throughout the year.
We are set back about 200m from the waters edge and look due North across the Atlantic toward Robben Island and beyond. On a very clear night one can just see the light from the Dassen Island Lighthouse which is off Ysterfontein 80km away!
Directly in front of us is the rocky shoreline and there is an ever changing view of sealife and birdlife including whales and dolphins, many seals, and further out a parade of ships and fishing boats passing by.
We are situated 20 minutes from central Cape Town, the waterfront etc, (via a beautiful coast road). 5 minutes from Hout Bay, with its beach, shopping facilities, restaurants, fishing harbour and other amenities. Allow 35 minutes to and from CT International airport.
