Kimberley House offers a luxurious and relaxed environment. It has recently been completely refurbished but retains old oregon pine floors, high ceilings and other original features. It is simply but tastefully furnished and has an unfussy holiday feel. It was built in 1895 and is constructed using the existing rocks of the mountainside and local stone, very much in the tradition of Kalk Bay and St James, the two neighbouring villages along the southern coastal road where it is situated.

Sleeping 6 - 8 people in four bedrooms, it is a spacious house with high ceilings, lovely old wooden floors of Oregon pine, and elegant proportions. It also has four bathrooms, a generous kitchen with dishwasher, a lounge with fireplace and a dining room. Outside is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. All of it is decorated in a simple, uncluttered style but every effort has been made to retain the integrity of the house as a fine example of an early South African home.

Dalebrook tidal rock pool, a favourite swimming hole for Kalk Bay’s early risers, is a couple of minutes walk away. Carry on past the cafés, art galleries, antique and junk shops, ice cream parlour and numerous trendy and retro clothes boutiques to Kalk Bay harbour where colourful fishing boats arriving with their daily catch compete with colourful characters and tame seals for entertainment. Stop at the famous Olympia Deli - the ultimate in shabby chic, but famous for its fantastic no-nonsense contemporary food, excellent fish and superb bakery.

Walk the other way over rocks and sandy beaches, along the catwalk past Danger Beach and St James with its perfect tidal pool for kids to Muizenberg beach. Stroll from Surfer’s corner at one end along the longest, whitest sands stretching as far as the eye can see.
