WORTH A LOOK

Getaway (South Africa) - - Check In -

Lyne­doch I wish there was space to vis­ually fea­ture this de­light­ful, old-fash­ioned Kalk Bay villa. Sleep­ing 12 in six bed­rooms, it is the biggest house I in­spected in the vil­lage and rep­re­sents ex­cel­lent value. Un­ren­o­vated but in mint con­di­tion, it is clearly much loved by its UK-based own­ers and well tended by a live-in house­keeper. Lo­cated on a quiet road high up in the vil­lage, the views are as­tound­ing. From R2 400. airbnb.com/ rooms/14581398 The Fir­mount An­other ex­cel­lent his­toric home (built 1919), which also en­joys a fan­tas­tic el­e­vated lo­ca­tion and is well man­aged by wel­com­ing host Ted Saczek. There’s am­ple space for six peo­ple in three bed­rooms and a va­ri­ety of places (in­clud­ing the out­side shower) to en­joy the mar­vel­lous views. From R1 800 (min­i­mum two nights). the­fir­mount.com Bea­cons’ View If you’re a fam­ily of four on a bud­get, this apart­ment is a great op­tion. It’s in a small block set back from the bot­tom end of Boyes Drive, so the views are not as spec­tac­u­lar but you are in walk­ing dis­tance from the vil­lage. The apart­ment is nicely fur­nished and has real old-fash­ioned charm. A fab­u­lous bar­gain if you don’t mind not be­ing in a front-row seat. From R940 for four (min­i­mum two nights). capes­tay.co.za Spin­drift This is Louise Parr’s new onebed­room apart­ment be­low her own home, neigh­bour­ing Fair­wa­ter (page 49). It has un­ob­structed har­bour views and is an­other bar­gain at the cur­rent rate of R1 100 to R1 500 a night. thekalk­bay­port­fo­lio.co.za Eight Bells De­lene Bur­man’s one-bed­room flat­let is be­low her home sit­u­ated high above Kalk Bay on the border with St James. The stairs are steep so it re­quires some fit­ness, but it’s very pri­vate and has a small, pet-friendly gar­den with a ta­ble shaded by an oak tree. It’s the views that will take your breath away, though. From R500 (three­night min­i­mum). capes­tay.co.za
