Overview

Our Holiday and beach apartments are beautifully furnished self-catering units and are situated at the main swimming beaches of the Strand. Almost all the apartments have Sea Views and are within a few steps to the sandy beaches.

The Strand offers ideal waters for sailing, surfing, fishing, swimming and wind surfing. With its long and safe beaches, a number of restaurants and shops, the Strand is truly an ideal holiday destination.

Life at Sea specializes in Holiday and beach accommodation in the picturesque Helderberg Basin, which is the eastern-most region of the Cape Metro pole and combines the towns of Somerset West, Gordon's Bay and the Strand. As the Helderberg Basin is only 25min drive from Cape Town it offers the excitement of the city combined with the peace of the country.

We have a beautiful beach house with three self-catering apartments just 50metres from the main swimming beach and close to the entertainment areas at the beach. Then we have 3 Chasmar, and 1 Romilly unit situated on beach road.

If you want to see whales, penguins, townships or even the sea from a Mountain View, you do not have to drive all the way to Hermanus, Simons Town, Langa or Chapman's Peak; just take the Clarence drive from Gordon's Bay to Rooi Els. Here in the Helderberg area (Somerset West, Strand, Gordon's Bay and Sir Lowry's Pass) there is basically something for everyone.

If you enjoy adventure sports like paragliding, sand boarding, surfing and body boarding then this area definitely has something for you.

Guest Comments

The apartment was sufficient for our needs, as we merely stayed there whilst exploring Cape Town and surrounds. I was however very disappointed when we came back to the apartment on day 1 to find that it had not been cleaned and that this was not a service that was provided. The host/owner/caretaker was happy to send someone the next day to clean, but that wasn't the point. I feel that the unit we stayed in was in need of an upgrade, and that the chairs on the patio was falling apart (nails were sticking out and actually hooked my clothes). I wouldn't stay here again.
- Odette Van Schallkwyk

It was extremely pleasant and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Beautiful rooms, very clean and Danie was very friendly.

Outstanding.
