About South Winds Self Catering

“South Winds” is a self-catering wooden bungalow situated directly on the rocks of Castle Rock Marine Reserve on the Cape Peninsula. This piece of paradise is unencumbered by crowds, traffic or pollution and is a favourite spot for discerning locals who cherish the wild magic of the area.

The reserve has one of the most beautiful and unspoilt coastlines in South Africa. It is a conservation haven for a diverse and colourful marine ecosystem and a playground for scuba divers and rock pool enthusiasts. While the house gives one the impression of being serenely remote and far from civilisation it is in fact only 5km from the charming village of Simon’s Town.

Accommodation

The house boasts floor to ceiling views across False Bay towards the distant Hottentot’s Holland mountains.

Situated just above the high tide mark and overlooking rock pools, you can watch the fish from your couch. There are three sunny bedrooms (two double, one twin), bathroom with shower, an immaculate open-plan kitchen, a large lounge/diningroom with a wood-burning fireplace, viewing deck and 160 degree views of the ocean and surrounding mountains.

Facilities

South Winds is fully furnished and equipped with everything needed for an extended stay. There is a TV, DVD player, microwave, fully-equipped kitchen, as well as linen and towels of good quality. You need only stock up on food and drinks, bring a few good books and your sense of adventure.

The Cape Peninsula mountain range is directly behind the house so there are numerous walks through the indigenous fynbos right on your doorstep. The range is home to the smallest and richest floral kingdom in the world and a healthy bird life. Small wildlife such as ghecko, tortoise, tiny buck and baboon live in the valleys bordering the nature reserve.

Coastal walks meander from your front door, left to Simon’s Town and right to the Cape Point Nature Reserve. The rock pools along the way are full of life and colour and are a constant source of wonder.

From May to November, the Southern Right Whales come to calve in the warm waters of False Bay. South Winds panoramic view of the bay is perfect for whale watching from the lounge or deck. Schools of dolphins are constant visitors to the bay as are seals.

Attractions & Activities

Other neighbouring villages are a must to visit. Fish Hoek has an excellent beach for swimming and surfing and is a paradise for children. The quaint fishing village of Kalk Bay is known for its antique shops, theatre and restaurants and where you can buy fresh line-fish directly from the boats, is worth a full day’s excursion. The Constantia vineyards are only a 20-minute drive while Scarborough and Muizenberg are 15 minutes in either direction.
