If you're planning a stay in Cape Town, there are two things you have to decide - where to stay and what to do. The first is easy - Kommetjie is a choice location in Cape Town due to its undeniable charm and unspoilt beauty - something which has become increasingly hard to find elsewhere in Cape Town. Kommetjie is a cosy, charming, unpretentious century old seaside village which has some of the most magnificent beaches to be seen anywhere in the world. The white sands and indigo waters of Long Beach and adjacent Noordhoek beach stretch for kilometres along the coast of this delightful area.
As you plan your travels to Cape Town, are you looking to enjoy a holiday on the beach? Believe it or not, this type of experience is not as easy to find in Cape Town as you may think. Most beach suburbs in Cape Town do not offer real estate literally on the beach and in most cases, there are at least one or two roads between any houses and the beaches.
Kommetjie however, is one of the only areas of Cape Town where you can literally book a self catering holiday home or villa on the beach, without paying a fortune for the experience... Where your front garden leads onto the sand dunes of Long Beach and the ocean is just metres from your accommodation. Where your children can frolic in the waves and then scamper back up to your beach villa to splash in the pool.
Other than being an excellent family destination, Kommetjie is also ideal for guests looking for time out from that busy day to day life of stress, pressure and deadlines. Known for its relaxed slow pace, the essence of Kommetjie is about taking it easy - about chilling, relaxing, enjoying life, enjoying the outdoors, gentle romantic walks on the beaches and beautiful golden sunsets over the ocean. Kommetjie is a place of peace and tranquillity.
Accommodation in Kommetjie varies from neat little cottages, to relaxed holiday homes, to luxury beach villas. Depending on your budget and the size of your party, accommodation in Kommetjie is generally able to meet most holiday makers needs and desires. Our self catering holiday homes and beach villas area generally either on the beach or in close proximity to the beach, and most offer private swimming pools and glorious sea views. Well suited to families and couples alike, you should be able to find accommodation that meets your exact needs in our Portfolio.
Kommetjie lies just 15 minutes from the beautifully scenic Cape Point Nature Reserve, 45 minutes south of Cape Town and its famed landmarks such as Table Mountain and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and an easy 50 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.
Local activities include the beach, surfing, boogie-boarding, kite surfing, kayaking, diving, bird watching, deep-sea fishing, hiking, whale watching, and scrumptious seafood sampling. If the Atlantic Ocean of Kommetjie proves to be a bit chilly, then you have the warmer waters and lovely beaches of False Bay coastline which is home to the Jackass Penguin at Boulders Beach, Simons Town.
Picturesque Clovelly and Steenberg golf courses and the world renown Constantia Wine Route are only 15 to 20 minutes drive from Kommetjie. And if you're looking for excellent restaurants, eclectic coffee shops and just a fabulous range of gastronomic delights, then numerous Kalk Bay and Simonstown restaurants & cafe's are all under 20 mins away.
In the neighbouring beach suburb of Noordhoek, a community passionate about horse riding, you can enjoy the experience of horse-riding on the beach, or take a mellow meander through the quaint shops of The Noordhoek Village before quenching your thirst and satisfying your appetite in one of the lovely restaurants on offer in the Village. For even more activity and fun, the fabulous Table Mountain, World of Birds, Kirstenbosch Gardens and the Waterfront are just a little further from Kommetjie.
For big shopping sprees there is a Shopping Mall 10 minutes away from Kommetjie, which has restaurants, a cinema, supermarkets, clothing, decor, coffee shops, jewellery and departmental stores, everything you might need just around the corner.

Activities ranging from horse riding to visiting the snake park or animal touch farm. The Imhoff Farmstall is a sensory delight of organic food stuffs, home-made goodies and fresh produce, not to mention home-made Italian ice cream too!
