Le Riad de l'Espérance
Le Riad de l'Espérance
With four bedrooms, three bathrooms (with heated towel rails and underfloor heating), two kitchens and scullery, three indoor/outdoor dining areas, a bar, snooker table, 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 is 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, and 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.
The full-time housekeeper is available 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.
Sports equipment like mountain bikes, golf clubs, and a double-sea kayak can also be made available on request.

A wonderful way to end our trip to Africa. We felt like we were home even though we were continents away. The views are spectacular and the decor made us feel we were in a warm welcoming museum. So unique! Loved the staff especially Rodgers who couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. Do not wait when this home becomes available again. Sweet memories!”
This is an amazing home in a beautiful location! Our traveling group of 8 was very comfortable and enjoyed the property very much. When we weren't out exploring Cape Town, the winelands, and the coast, we found the home to be very comfortable and relaxing.”

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.”
