Le Riad de l'Espérance
Le Riad de l'Espérance
With four bedrooms, three bathrooms (with heated towel rails and underfloor heating), two kitchens and scullery, three indoor/outdoor dining areas, a bar, snooker table, and study areas, two outdoor lounges, a rooftop terrace, an outdoor jacuzzi and heated pool you will never want to leave this property.
The main entrance staircase leads into double volume, open-plan dining room, lounge, and kitchen. The kitchen is gourmet equipped and opens onto the balcony dining area complete with barbecue.
Probably the best part about this home is the spectacular sunsets that you can view from every angle across the harbor and the ocean. They will take your breath away.
Steps away from Bikini Beach, which has Blue Flag status making it one of the best beaches in South Africa (A Blue Flag is an international award given to beaches that meet EXCELLENCE in the areas of safety, and amenities, cleanliness, and environmental standards).
Gordons Bay is a wonderful, quiet fishing village with spectacular views over False Bay. The sea water temperature on this side of the coast (Indian Ocean) is significantly warmer than on the Atlantic coast in Cape Town, so it is pleasant to swim. The harbour wall is a popular fishing spot too.
The full-time housekeeper is available to assist guests. Laundry will be done for you on request. House will be serviced daily. Sports equipment like mountain bikes, golf clubs, and a double-sea kayak can also be made available on request.

We so enjoyed our stay at Le Riad. Lyndsay, our host, was super responsive to all our questions and was so helpful in recommendations to wineries that were breathtakingly beautiful. We had an extremely drenching rain day that we happily spent at Le Riad in front of an enormous roaring fire…it was delightful. Le Riad is out of the pages of Architectural Digest and all the attention to detail is stunning. Nareema acclimated us to Gordon’s Bay and drove us to wineries and to Hermanus to see the whales. Nareema is a true treasure and helped make this a PERFECT trip.”

We loved our stay in Gordon's Bay at the Riad de l'Espérance! The home is so unique and special with everything you could possibly need or want. We loved cooking in the kitchen with that view and all the amenities. The pool and jacuzzi were also well enjoyed. Each room has it's own special charm and we loved them all. Thanks for a wonderful stay.”
