About Dunvegan Lodge

The coastal town of Fish Hoek has practically become an extended suburb of Cape Town, thanks to its only being some 30 minutes away from the centre of the Mother City. Fish Hoek is a bustling little village and is home to the gorgeous Dunvegan Lodge. This lodge is perched on the hillsides of Clovelly, with breath-taking views of the golf course and Fish Hoek Valley below.

Self Catering Accommodation

This lodge has spacious suites that are tastefully decorated and elegantly inviting. There are decks and patios around the lodge, which are the perfect places to enjoy a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee or a glass of world-class South African wine. These little spots are perfect retreats from the humdrum of the city. Each room has a private area, showcasing views of the valley or the mountains, which are blanketed by exquisite fynbos.

There are a number of self-catering suites available at Dunvegan Lodge.

Exclusive Use Villa
The Exclusive Villa offers something very special. It is an entire guest house in its own right, complete with eight bedrooms and a large living area. It accommodates around 16 people and is a fabulous option for families or groups of friends needing a real getaway.

Location & Attractions

The ambience of the guest house is influenced by the laid-back serenity of Clovelly. This area is only five minutes from the little hub of Fish Hoek, which is charming and fun to explore. A little further afield are all the wonders of Cape Town and its surrounds. These attractions include Table Mountain, the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, V & A Waterfront, Camps Bay and the Cape Winelands.

There are walking and hiking trails and the caves of the Silvermine Nature Reserve nearby, and these are always exciting to explore. The ocean is a short walk away, and is fabulous for SCUBA diving, snorkelling and surfing. Every year, the whales visit this stretch of the coastline and put on an awesome display for their onlookers. There is also the award-winning Clovelly Country Club golf course in the area.

Dunvegan Lodge promises a little something for everyone, all within chic and comfortable surrounds.

Verified reviewexcellent

We have wintered at the Cape since our retirement in 1990. The length of our stay has grown each year and we have recently returned to the UK after ten weeks at Dunvegan lodge. We have stayed at Dunvegan lodge every year since it opened in 1998. We find it conveniently located for golf, beaches, restaurants and shops. The facilities at the lodge are of the highest standard. Our main reason for going year after year is the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners Peter and Sylvia snd their staff. for us it really is a home from home.

This is a long overdue review, because I have been staying in this lodge several times and every time I visit Cape Town. Dunvegan Lodge has it all and for me it is home from home. The owners, Peter and Sylvia, are fabulous hosts and always around to help, advise and even do reservations for you, eg. the local restaurant or a hairdresser! This very hospitable couple go out of their way to help and make sure that you are satisfied and have a happy stay. Yet, you have entire privacy in clean and nicely decorated units. There are quite a few units to choose from and I have probably stayed in most of them by now. I can’t fault any of them! All units are equipped with little kitchenettes, so are great for self catering. The outdoor Jacuzzi and a swimming pool are also wonderful additions. What is most amazing though is the view – from the front balconies you have a view over two oceans: on the left the Indian Ocean and on the right the Atlantic Ocean. Not many lodges in the Cape Town area have access to two oceans within a short drive as Dunvegan! The location is probably what I like about Dunvegan the most. Apart from the fact that it is situated in a picturesque area, it has immediate access to fynbos, the indigenous vegetation full of birds. The bird feeders in the garden attract numerous colourful birds allowing close viewing. This is perfect for the birders like me, but there is also a golf course within walking distance! It is a quiet and safe area, yet close to all amenities. Kalk Bay is fabulous and will entertain you during the evening with one of the best restaurants in Cape Town and, during the day, it is buzzing with life with quirky shops and markets. The centre of Cape Town is a short distance away and the drive is one of the most scenic in the Cape Peninsular. It has good access to southern coast as well the picturesque Somerset West, Stellenbosch and wine route. With its competitive prices, I can’t fault Dunvegan Lodge! I love this place and highly recommend it!

Need to Know

Response timeDunvegan Lodge typically responds to requests in 5-10 minutes.

Child policyAll ages welcome, by arrangement.
We accept Children on request but must point out that with us being on the mountain, we do have lots of stairs to climb and we have a swimming pool. So it is not child proof and it can be a strain on parents who have the full responsibility of watching their small children. We do not have any special extra facilities for children.
