Host Review Score

Helderberg Guesthouse is situated on the mountainslopes of Gordon's Bay, which is 60km from Cape Town CBD. The guesthouse is slightly more than 2km from the beach, though it has a view on False Bay, the city and mountains. I would rate it as 3-star.
I operate the guesthouse as an additional activity, I still have a day-time office job.
Gordons Bay is a coastal town in the picturesque Cape, situated between mountains, the ocean and winelands.
