Harbour Place in Kalk Bay

A Seaside Holiday with a Difference, imagine waking up in a lovingly restored old-world apartment, to a breath-taking view of the Kalk Bay Harbour. Tumbling out of bed to pop across the street for freshly baked croissants from the Olympia Bakery, that well-loved Cape Town landmark. Imagine taking breakfast on your private undercover patio, wooden deck overlooking the harbour or on the spacious and sunny window sill, watching the boats and enjoying bustle of the quaint village streets. Beyond that, the majestic mountains of Fish Hoek and Simon’s Town hug the coastline and the blue, blue ocean where whales and dolphins play. It’s the start of another perfect day at Harbour Place, a luxury apartment right on the edge of Kalk Bay’s colourful harbour. Harbour Place is not just another plush seaside getaway. Safely nestled in the prestigious Majestic Village, a unique 24-hour security village made up of several historical Kalk Bay buildings, it combines the colonial charm of the elegant Thirties with all the creature comforts of a modern beach house.

The Apartment at Harbour Place extends over a sizeable portion of the lower west wing of the original New King’s Hotel on Main Road, Kalk Bay. Inspired by the unfussy, elegant designs of the Thirties, its interior is an eclectic mix of Art Deco and modern pieces, cleverly combined to create a space where you can relax and unwind, without ever distracting from its truly special location. Expect to find high ceilings and exquisitely arched lead-glass windows framing a charming and unusual view of the Harbour. Feast your senses on uncompromising luxury and quality, whether you’re padding on the Tasmanian Teak hardwood floors , complete with under floor heating for colder winter nights or snuggling into 100% Percale, hand-embroidered Egyptian bed linen. There are two large bedrooms at Harbour Place. The main bedroom has a king-sized bed with bathroom and toilet en-suite bathroom, the second bedroom has two single beds with shower and en-suite. A lock-up safe and plenty of cupboard space ensure a safe and clutter-free stay.

Provision has been made for two extra people on a roll-out day-bed in the spacious living area, should your party consist of more than four guests. With plenty of restaurants within a 3km radius, you might want to side-step the kitchen altogether. But should you yearn for some home cooking; the state of the art kitchen will get your creative juices flowing. Equipped with ultra-modern appliances, including a microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher, no expense has been spared to make sure your time in the kitchen feels like part of your holiday. The kitchen window has a beautiful view over the bay, and incorporates a convenient serving hatch which lets you pass those home-made goodies straight through to your lucky guests salivating on the patio. Of course, your apartment will be serviced daily, unless you'd like it otherwise, with fresh linen changes twice a week. Personal laundry can be done in The Majestic Village laundry room, a few metres from the apartment.

Things to do in and around Kalk Bay, when it comes to art, antiques, books, music and good food, you'll have to spend weeks in this little harbour village to experience everything. Galleries, museums, fabulous world-famous restaurants, antique and craft shops are all within a 2km radius. Should you feel more energetic, you have several beautiful tidal pools and great swimming beaches a shell's throw away. A 15 minute walk will get you to the famous St. James swimming beach with its row of colourful change rooms you've probably seen on many post cards. The beaches of Fish Hoek and Muizenberg are a 5 min drive away, or for those who like a brisk walk, about 25 minutes' walk. Go cycling along the breath-taking Cape Point route or hike in the beautiful nature reserve at the base of the mountain right behind the apartment.

Reviews for Harbour Place

Harbour Place rating

I had the pleasure of staying in HarbourPlace in December. A stunning place in a beautiful setting. The decor is inviting and makes one feel at home. The attention to detail is super special, a welcoming bottle of wine awaited us with a personalized note. The Nespresso machine was an absolute spoil and there is all the other luxuries one can wish for. Harbour Place have the best location to explore Kalkbay and surrounds. The view is simply unbelievable, looking out over False Bay and Kalkbay harbour where you can see the colorful fishing boats. Everything you need to make holiday memories are within walking distance, restaurants, interesting shops and the beach. Our few days was way to short to enjoy everything that Harbour Place have to offer and will definitely be back. Wether you need a weekend break or a longer stay, this is the perfect place to come.
