Manor on the Bay is a 12 en-suite room Guest House situated on the sandy white beach of peaceful Gordon's Bay. The house was built in 1862 and served as a summer residence for the famous Beit-family. Oregon floors, high ceilings, the magnificent unsurpassed mountain and sea-view and the private wine-cellar adds to the elegance of this historic manor. The mountain stream, oaks and palm-trees contribute to the tranquillity of the unspoiled garden.
