Situated in the delightful village of Gordons Bay, the Downstairs Suites is an ideal place to relax and enjoy your holiday. Sit on the balcony and look over the most magnificent view of the ocean and the surrounding mountains. During the months of May to November we are visited by the Southern Right Whales right on our doorstep and the dolphins are never far away.
We have three suites, two fully equipped for self catering with separate entrances, the other on a bed and breakfast basis. All have balconies with magnificent sea views. A high standard in linens, towels etc is maintained and this together with the reasonable rates we offer,brings our clients back year after year.
In the front is a peaceful garden with a superb swimming pool. Guinea fowl and many species of Cape birds are ever present. The area is safe and secure with ample parking available.
The beaches are in close proximity which makes the position of the suites ideal. If one is a golfer there are courses close by, and if one likes hiking there are interesting trails and of course, fishing is one of the main sports.
Turn left on the R44 and you can travel along the coastal road with superb views of False Bay stretching across to Betty's Bay, Klienmond with its interesting shops to Hermanus with its many attractions including whale watching.
Travel though Paarl... Good restaurants abound your route.
Another interesting tour is to keep to the coastal road to Gordon's Bay.
With the Downstairs Suites is the Downstairs Gallery where one can view the large exhibition of paintings and tiles by the well known artist Edmund Barton. The gallery is very interesting, using the natural rocks of the mountain in its interior and is open to the public every day.
Your stay with your hosts Georgie and Edmund Barton will be memorable judging by the number of guests who return to stay.
