Westlake is one of the many suburban areas of the Mother City, Cape Town, in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. It is surrounded by the picturesque mountains of Tokai and Silvermine, situated below the historical Ou Kaapse Weg, which boasts magnificent panoramic views.
Westlake is surrounded by neighbourhoods like Kirstenhof, Lakeside, Groot Silwermyn, Steenberg, Clovelly and Bergvliet. Muizenberg and its famous beach are also nearby. In addition to the many homes and residential complexes of Westlake, this neighbourhood is also home to a number of important businesses, making it a veritable hub of activity and an important contributor to the vibe and industry of Cape Town.
Less than 20 minutesí drive from Westlake are the coastal villages of St James and Kalk Bay, which are fantastic places to explore for visitors that love antiques, book stores, great coffee, and excellent dining opportunities. Slightly further afield are Fishhoek and Simonstown, which are both steeped in history with the added benefit of breath-taking views of the ocean.
The Westlake Golf Course is one of the most popular and frequented in the Western Cape. It dates back to 1932, and is an 18-hole course that caters to beginners and old-hands alike. It is a kikuyu and powa course that is characterised by the pretty fauna and flora that finds their natural habitat in this part of the Cape. This makes it a beautiful oasis in the heart of suburbia.
