Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great Views!
We (family of 3) stayer at the Riesling suite for the 3rd time. Stay was once again very comfortable, spacious room. Nicely equipped kitchen but above all very friendly hosts. Good price quality, especially looking at the fabulous location overlooking false bay and table mountain. The master bedroom is very spacious, extra bedroom comfortable. A classic feel-good place not your modern state of the art slick design place! Would definately go back here anytime we are in the capetown area.

Well equipped, centrally located accommodation with most helpful hosts
A lovely place to stay, the views are magnificent from the appartments and garden. Very centrally located. 5 minutes from a lovely beach with nice restaurants.Hosts provide umbrellas, beach chairs, cool boxes. Near Capetown and wineries. Hosts are most welcoming and helpful. Appartments spacious. Daily cleaned. Very well equipped. We enjoyed several drinks with our hosts by the poolside. Not only enjoyable but also helpful to get much information about the surroundings. We felt very welcome and at home. We will for sure try to come back!!

Excellent stay
We stayed for the second time in the wonderfull Riesling suite at Highcliffe House. Our lovely hosts Jane and Jim have been very kind and welcoming again. The Riesling appartment is a two bedroom very spacious appartment with two separate bathrooms. Kitchen utilities are up to a good standard, enabling for some proper home cooking if you wish. A barbecue is standard for every appartment ;-) In the downstairs bar there is opportunity for drinks with your hosts or other guests bit if you want more privacy that is fine as well. Also a small pool is downstairs with great views over false bay and table mountain. The house is located on the hillside which makes for quite a steepclimb to the house, a car is recommended. The gordons bay beach is less then 2 car minutes away and also grocery shopping just down the hill. Good wineries and excellent restaurants in the vicinity to top it all off. All in all its good value for money on a very beautifull location.

Great accomdation and facilities, spectacular views with wonderful hosts!!
Superb accommodation and great facilities. Spacious and roomy with spectacular views of False Bay and Gordon's Bay. Wonderful hosts (Jim and Jane) made us feel very welcome and feel at home. Close proximity to the beach, shops and restaurants. Location is great, close to the wine farms and a short drive to Cape Town. Whale watching (in season) would be an awesome sight. You can watch amazing sunsets against the backdrop of Table Mountain from the comfort of your room and lounge!! I would highly recommend this apartment and I would be a regular visitor in the years to come! Thanks Jim & Jane for the wonderful upkeep and your generous hospitality...

Calm and Beautiful with Warm Hosts
We had a lovely 9 day stat in the Riesling Suite at Highcliffe. Jane & Jim - Thank you so much for the friendly welcome and the enjoyable conversations. I cannot recommend this spot in Gordon's Bay enough. While it can be windy at night it is in an extremely quiet location with a jaw dropping view of the whole of False Bay and the mountains. It's hard not to just constantly stare out the window. The unit is well appointed and has absolutely everything a family should need!

Fantastic accommodation with breathtaking view of False Bay from the side of the Hottentot Mountains
As ex South Africans living in Scotland we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the fully furnished Riesling Suite @ Highcliffe House in Gordons Bay with its breathtaking views of False Bay and surrounding area, including Table Mountain from the East. Jane and Jim have been excellent hosts, the accommodation was very clean and tastefully decorated. With a communal pool, pub and braai (barbeque) facilities, including free wifi, it caters for all tastes. It is close to lovely beaches and world class shopping facilities and eateries, 1/2 hour drive from Cape Town International Airport, and an hours drive to Cape Town city centre. It is ideally situated to visit the numerous world renowned Cape Wine Estates in the area, or drive over the mountain to Hermanus to watch the whales during whale season. All in all it has been a fantastic stay and we would highly recommend Highcliffe House and would stay there again when we visit in the future. The weather wasn't great during our stay, as can be expected in early September which is beginning of Spring in the Southern hemisphere, but with great weather this will be heaven.

About the neighbourhood
Gordon's Bay is a picturesque coastal village, often called the 'jewel of the Western Cape' and still one of the best kept secrets in the area. With safe sandy white beaches, including the Blue Flag Bikini Beach, two harbours on False Bay, Gordon's Bay is also a boating and fisherman's paradise. This quaint seaside village has bars and restaurants to suit all tastes, a 9 hole golfcourse right in the village, bowls, horse riding as well as a number of hiking trails and walking routes. It is the start of the famous 'Whale Coast Route' which follows the spectacular Faure Marine Drive round the coast to Hermanus, and in July to December the Southern Right whales can be seen in False Bay, along with dolphins and sharks - shark cage diving is available nearby, and there are a colony of penguins at Betty's Bay, just along the coast. There is also MonkeyTown - a fascinating Primate Centre and ideal for children, and Blue Rock Cable Waterski is a great centre for all ages, offering very safe cable water skiing, fishing, diving and other activities. Located just 45 km from the centre of Cape Town, 25 km from Cape Town International Airport, Gordon's Bay is the ideal location for exploring all of the Western Cape from Cape Point to Hermanus and beyond. There are 5 championship golf courses all within 15 minutes drive, and the historic Cape Winelands of the Helderberg, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek start just 10km away offering superb wine tasting and gourmet restaurants. The Helderberg Wine route actually starts in Gordon's Bay. There is also a large shopping mall nearby with upmarket shops, cinemas and coffee shops. With its beautiful scenery, fantastic sunsets, wonderful birdlife and plethora of water sports, Gordon's Bay is the perfect holiday venue - away from the city rush, providing visitors with a tranquil holiday in beautiful peaceful surroundings.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
From Cape Town International airport, follow the N2 motorway towards Somerset West.. Continue along the N2 past the Somerset Mall shopping centre on the right, Somerset West on the left and through Strand (approx. 20 kms). Just before Sir Lowry's Pass, turn right at the traffic light, signposted to Gordon's Bay and Klienmont (R44). Continue along this road (Sir Lowry's Pass road) until just BEFORE the T-Junction at the end, and turn left into Boundary Road (also called Grens Weg). If you are on the road that goes up a hill and turns right with the sea on the right, you have missed the turning to Boundary Road, and are heading to Rooi Els. You will need to turn round at the first opportunity and go back and turn into Boundary Road. Drive up the hill - Boundary Road bears to the left, and Highcliffe House is located just over the top on the left hand side, No. 65 at the corner of Bulbine Street.
