Best for Escapists - Expert review of Bishop's View

Soak up the ambience of this quaint fishing village in supremely stylish surrounds.

I know Bishop's View well. I used to live a few doors away and I have overseas friends who book it regularly so I've been privy to its mid-century-modern-meets-Afro-chic style from all angles. And it's great. If staying in a good looking space is important to you and being based in a quaint little fishing village appeals (and it should because Kalk Bay is very special) then this is where you want to be. An exercise in streamlined metal, wood and glass, and designed by one of the city's most important architects, self-catering Bishop's View may have all the bells and whistles but you'll soon kick off your shoes and feel right at home. It's ideal for families and groups as it sleeps up to eight people in four double bedrooms. Kalk Bay is just 25 minutes from Cape Town itself.

Location: 

In the heart of quaint cobblestoned Kalk Bay, an authentic and Bohemian fishing village that's home to a plethora of fascinating bric-a-brac shops and authentic eateries.

Bedrooms: 

There are four bedrooms. You'll love the sleek hotel chic minimalism warmed up with authentic Africa - from traditional basketry to contemporary fabric and furniture designs.

Public areas: 

There is a central open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area and an outside deck and pool.

Eating and drinking: 

This is a self-catering villa but the owners are real foodies so you know the knives will be sharp and there's a quality coffee machine.

Leisure facilities: 

A pool, steam room (for up to six people) and a yoga studio ensures you'll leave feeling absolutely well rested.

Service: 

Though this is a self-catering facility, there is a full-time staff member who looks after the villa and your daily needs. A manager checks on guests regularly and is on 24-hour call for all needs.
