In the quirky seaside town of Hout Bay, you’ll find Harbour View – one of the three luxury self-catering accommodation available within the DK Villas group. Couple and co-owners Johann and Petra de Kock have put everything into the construction of their villas, and it is this passion and absolute attention to detail that make Harbour View the perfect choice for a home away from home. Harbour View is elegant without being pretentious and cozy without being cramped.
Having called Hout Bay home for nearly 20 years, when Johann and Petra de Kock made the decision to embark on this journey, it only seemed fitting that they would open their first villa in the place they knew inside and out. The couple have since expanded and now have The Boardwalk, also situated in Hout Bay, and Skilliepark, a beach apartment in the idyllic little village of Dwarskersbos. The commonality throughout the accommodation in the DK Villas group is their close proximity to the seaside and all it has to offer. “All our places are close to the beach, conducive to a healthy lifestyle and have what we call the De Kock flair,” says Petra. The couple are passionate about what they do and are dedicated to giving guests a memorable experience, showing off everything the Western Cape has to offer. “We want our guests to love our villas as much as we do – and to simply enjoy our home town and our beautiful province. Our hand-selected properties, local knowledge and years in the South African hospitality industry ensure that guests have the holiday of a lifetime.”
Harbour View is a fully furnished apartment situated on the second floor in a security complex. With breath-taking ocean and mountain views, guests are welcomed into the spacious living area, which connects the dining room, lounge and kitchen in an open-plan design. The kitchen, which is furnished with elegant Caesarstone worktops, has all the appliances one needs to whip up a delicious home-cooked meal, including an electric hob and cooker, microwave, dual fridge and freezer, as well as gorgeous high-end SMEG appliances. In addition, the villa is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer – making your visit virtually hassle-free. For entertainment purposes there is a flat-screen satellite television with DStv and WiFi available throughout the unit.
Harbour View offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main bedroom boasts a queen-sized bed and leads into an en-suite bathroom. The second and third rooms both have double beds and make use of a full, separate bathroom. The central living area has glass doors which open up onto a sheltered balcony, ideal for watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee or watching it set with a chilled glass of wine.
Guests can also explore the hustle and bustle of Hout Bay with its abundance of restaurants, galleries, markets and shops, as well as the beaches and mountains which are virtually at your front steps. This villa is a topnotch selection if you’re wanting to be close to the centre of Cape Town but still maintain that remote village atmosphere. With everything you need at hand and owners dedicated to making your stay memorable, Harbour View will not only satisfy, but delight.
