    Property description
    Gordon's Bay
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Highcliffe House is an upmarket guest house, owned and managed by Jane & Jim Yeomans who have travelled extensively.

This is possibly our fourth or fifth stay at Highcliffe House, but the first time in Merlot. It is every bit as luxurious and thoughtfully fitted out as the other appartment we have used, and the views from bedroom and lounge are just stunning, at whatever time of day or night. The biggest advantage of Merlot is its sheltered balcony... more

This was our base for exploring The Cape, Capetown, the wine area and the whale coast - we came at this time to make... more

Even though it rained all weekend, it really didn't matter as the apartment was so lovely that it was a pleasure to just spend time there relaxing. The view from both the lounge and bedroom was absolutely stunning and, although windy, the balcony was sheltered. The... more
