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.
