From Franschooek, we headed South East for just a few days exploring the cape peninsula earlier than ending off in Cape City itself. I actually wished to get a minimum of a style of dwelling like a neighborhood for a few days a minimum of and have our personal area so beloved the thought of renting someplace proper on the seaside. My sister, a Cape City common, advisable the small, surfy seaside city of Kommetjie (Komm-uh-kee) about an hour outdoors of central Cape City as a spot to base ourselves and the seaside home we ended up renting actually was a dream. I discovered it by way of Perfect Hideaways, an superb useful resource for renting seaside homes in and round Cape City and past and truthfully even in case you’re not out there for a vacation to SA, I’d undoubtedly advocate diving in and taking a look – the home porn is superb! Full with wraparound picket deck, hammock within the yard and the sound of waves trickling in from open home windows and billowing curtains, I used to be dwelling out all my Grace and Frankie seaside home fantasies at this place. It felt just like the loveliest household residence too fairly than a present residence, and was clearly much-loved by the individuals who owned it. Kommetjie was the right base for us for a few days of getting a salty seaside repair whereas additionally exploring neighbouring little cities like Kalk bay which is superb for pottery, textiles, classic outlets and 100% ensure you have dinner on the scrumptious new restaurant Salt, Scarborough seaside the place you will get your acai bowl repair at Entire Earth cafe or a espresso and deli-style provides at Foragers/The Hub, stunning Misty Cliffs that basically do dwell as much as their identify, and final however not least Nordhoek, an unbelievable, sweeping seaside in your method to Chapman’s Peak Drive the place there are some nice spots for wine with a view or perhaps a horse-ride on the seaside. You 100% want a automotive to get round, purchase provides and discover, though we did get an Uber each nights to dinner which was a very nice shock so we have been capable of have a drink with dinner.
In Kommetjie itself, there’s little else except for a nook store, deli (a stunning one with plenty of wholesome, healthful choices), a restaurant for pastries, juices and low, a bottle store for booze and a pub/bar reverse all of the earlier.I actually beloved how low-key it was as we actually felt like we have been calling it residence whereas there. The seaside is beautiful with fairly white homes lining the sand dunes and tonnes of surfers or all ages congregating across the fare finish of the seaside because the solar begins to get decrease. It truly is a type of uncommon locations that’s completely unspoilt and unpretentious whereas nonetheless feeling particular, the sort of place you’ll immediately begin plotting your retirement/dream life principally.
