Originally a fisherman’s cottage where lobster and abalone were collected from the rock pools in the early morning. Today the beach in front of  this Cape Town beach accommodation is a protected area. However you can still enjoy the fresh ocean air. Yes. also the beautiful sea views and gorgeous Cape Town sunsets.

This Cape Town beach accommodation Bakoven has undergone a transformation since its humble beginnings. The most recent renovation was completed in 2010 by world famous Turkish architect Ali Kemali.  The interiors where created by revered interior designer, Yelda Bayakatar. However, the house is protected by the City Council. This means that the foundation and exterior of the house have remained mostly unchanged.

Reviews of this Luxury Cape Town Beach Accommodation Bakoven

“On my arrival, I was warmly greeted by Charl, who made me feel wonderfully welcome and at home. He took me on a tour of the property and made sure that I was comfortable with my new surroundings.

They say that first impressions count and this place certainly delivers. No expense has been spared in the equipping of this luxury holiday villa – it is thoroughly modern and luxurious and the attention to detail in every fitting and fixture is astounding.

One would expect a sea view but nothing prepared me for the quite breathtaking ocean vistas that the enormous glass windows and doors provided.

The luxury holiday villa is literally just a few metres away from the Atlantic Ocean and is designed to maximize the powerful sights and sounds of the sea.

Everything is luxurious and state-of-the-art, from the beautiful Axor faucets, to the trendy Russell Hobbs kitchen appliances, to the cleverly recessed lighting, to the magnificent chandeliers, to the house-wide sound system and convenient WiFi Internet access.

A visit this place is a real treat and I hope to return there soon to enjoy some more of the spectacular views and luxurious indulgence it has to offer. Thank you  for your wonderful hospitality.” Sue Rutherford, Cape Stay

“We had a wonderful time. It’s obviously in an incredibly different scene, what with the waves of the Atlantic crashing at the foot of the bed!

We cooked in most nights and took advantage of the kitchen and braai. We were out exploring the Cape Peninsula during the day, so we really weren’t around then. But we would enjoy cocktails on the deck in the late afternoon, watching the show going on in the ocean. It was a magnificent place to stay in an incredible part of the world.

The memories will last a lifetime. Your staff was great. I’m sure it’s trying sometimes dealing with all those different people from different cultures, maybe being asked the same questions, all the time. But they were very helpful and professional.” Brad & Dorothy Nichols, USA
