Holiday Rental House
This charming original stone cottage is right in the centre of the Kalk Bay village overlooking a small park and the sea. It's perfect for families - spacious rooms, loads of cupboards and with all the equipment and facilities you'd expect in a home. The style is comfortably cottage and a bit quirky. There's a garden in front and a patio for sheltered barbecue meals at the back and a garage for two cars on the side. We've poured love and attention to detail into the renovation. It's the most delightful cottage....This charming original stone cottage is right in the centre of the Kalk Bay village overlooking a small park and the sea.

About the neighbourhood
The Cape is a feast. If it's beaches for sunbathing, swimming and surfing you're after, Cape Town has more than a dozen to choose from. If wine farms offering tastings or packed picnics is appealing, the magnificent Cape wine region is waiting to tempt you. If you're looking for spectacular mountain walks or just a ride to the top, Table Mountain is on your doorstep. Or it could be whale-watching or marveling at acres of spring flowers or playing golf on a different course every day that makes a holiday worthwhile. Does eating at world-class restaurants for less than you'd expect work for you? Or mooching through antique shops and indulging at country food markets? The Cape has it all.
Getting around
The best way to see what the Cape has to offer is by car. There is a railway line that passes through Kalk Bay that runs from Cape Town to Simons Town but the trains are slow and not very reliable.
