Gordons Bay, South Africa
Le Riad de l'Espérance
With 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (with heated towel rails and underfloor heating), 3 kitchens and scullery, 3 indoor/outdoor dining areas, entertainment and study areas, two outdoor lounges, a rooftop terrace, an outdoor jacuzzi and heated pool you will never want to leave this property.
The main entrance staircase leads into double volume, open plan dining room, lounge and kitchen. The kitchen is gourmet equipped and opens onto the balcony dining area complete with barbecue.
Probably the best part about this home are the spectacular sunsets that you can view from every angle across the harbor and the ocean. They will take your breath away.
Steps away from Bikini Beach which has Blue Flag status making it one of the best beaches in South Africa (A Blue Flag is an international award given to beaches that meet EXCELLENCE in the areas of safety, amenities, cleanliness and environmental standards).
Gordons Bay is a wonderful, quiet fishing village with spectacular views over False Bay. The sea water temperature on this side of the coast (Indian Ocean) is significantly warmer than on the Atlantic coast in Cape Town, so it is pleasant to swim. The harbour wall is a popular fishing spot too.
Full-time housekeeper is available at all times to assist guests. Laundry will be done for you on request. House will be serviced daily. A 7-seater Landrover Discovery (only with driver) can be made available by arrangement with an extra charge.

Incredible Home and Vacation Experience
The Gordons Bay home is fantastic. It is comfortable, has amazing views of the bay and mountains, and fascinating décor. Staying there adds to a wonderful experience. It is close to both Cape Town and many of the Garden Route sights so we had a lot to enjoy, including African Penguins at Bettys Bay, Cape Aguilas, Cape of Good Hope, and the scenic Garden Route of South Africa. Rodgers added to the experience by making sure that we had everything that we needed. It could not have been better!”
We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful stay at Le Riad. The home is exquisite...spacious & beautifully appointed with Moroccan treasures. The view of the ocean is superb. Our host was extremely gracious and provided great guidance for food and fun in the region. Rogers was there to help with all of our needs, including driving us when needed! He was so gracious and available as needed, but not in the way. Finally, food and wine is incredible in the wine region. So thankful for Lindsay, our host, and Third Home for making this adventure possible.”
Cape Town Vacation
We had a great time.”
The property is wonderful with very special view on the ocean and Sunset. The owners are very welcoming. The house is centrally situated at 45 minutes from Cape Town, close to the vineyards and Hermanus. The costal road is incredibly beautiful. Thank you to Lyndsay and François for letting us stay at their great home!”
Exceptional 5 Star Villa!
This home exceeded all expectations, with a Moroccan theme throughout, & breathtaking views of False Bay. Fabulous chef kitchen was just that, amazing! The owners went way out of their way to accommodate our travel plans, & the hospitality they showed us allowed us to have the trip of a lifetime. All of their recommendations of places to visit were spot on... The location really was fantastic, close to the Vineyards of Stellenbosh, with views that rival Tuscany, Italy. The penguins of Betty's Bay, and the whale watching in Hermanes. Our only regret is we didn't have more time to enjoy the many outdoor seating options the home offered, there was too much to see. Just not enough time, Hopefully next time...”
