With its vibrant harbour, many great restaurants and eateries, spas, wine estates within a short drive away, a beautiful beach as well as nearby nature reserves the town is quickly becoming hip and happening and attracts not only local visitors but a growing number of tourists.
Mountainside is a very popular section of Gordon’s Bay – situated against the Hottentot’s Holland mountain range – and is now a home for Aurora Views Luxury Villa. It is positioned along one of the highest roads in the area, boasting panoramic views of False Bay and the Helderberg basin.
The Owners, Sally & David Cole, living in the UK, have been regularly visiting South Africa for their holidays and fell in love with the country many years ago:
“We have spent a number of holidays staying in Gordon’s Bay, and have seen just how much the wine and leisure scene in the surrounding area has evolved. It is now home to some of South Africa’s top restaurants and a number of exceptional wine estates. And the views – it is like Christmas every day.” – says David Cole.
A large, private garden makes up the front of the property, with the striking Hottentots Holland Mountains as a backdrop.
Aurora Views, boasts contemporary and classic decor elements throughout the three spacious bedrooms and living spaces, created with exquisite attention to detail while at the same time offering privacy and tranquility.
Quality furniture was installed throughout and an elegant dining area adjacent to the open-plan kitchen boasts a modern but cosy ambience. The fully-equipped and spacious kitchen with large windows displays views of the garden and was created in anticipation of the most ambitious culinary endeavours. A separate scullery section is complete with all the necessary appliances for convenience, such as a microwave oven, washing machine and dishwasher, all for guests’ convenience.
Stunning ocean views set the tone for dinner parties or family lunches on the spacious balcony, while a more formal dining room is ideal for cooler evenings or more intimate occasions.
The main property is large and modern, and can accommodate six guests in its three double bedrooms. The property also benefits from a self-contained double garden cottage which can be rented with the whole property. In total, Aurora Views can comfortably accommodate 8 guests on a self-catering basis.

The centre of the house is a beautifully designed lounge with a strong connection to the outdoors opens up to a gorgeous view of Gordon’s Bay from the early morning till sunset. The large and comfortable sofas, are perfect places to relax, read a book or simply take a nap.
“The combination of the existing design with the new, modern furniture, including fabrics and décor pieces was an exceptional work of Yvette Claassen from WIPP Interior Design & Decorating.” – says David. “The property feels renewed, with a clean, fresh look but still some old characteristics shine through, which is very special.”
Complimentary Wi-Fi and DStv connection are available. Secure garage parking is available to guests.

The area is safe, growing in popularity, and offers a real alternative to the city vibe.” – adds Sally Cole.
Despite Gordon’s Bay being quiet and relatively small community there is plenty to do and explore in the area. From wine tours, hikes, beaches, art tours, spas, shopping, dining to a golf game at the world-famous Erinvale Golf Course, designed by legendary course designer and golfer Gary Player.
