Riverview Balcony

Located in a green, leafy complex a stone’s throw from the beach and a short drive from all of Hout Bay’s best shopping, restaurants, and attractions, the delightful one-bedroom, one-bathroom RivervieW is officially open for business!

This gem of an apartment has just been fully renovated and boasts a spacious, open-plan kitchen and lounge that flows out onto a gorgeous balcony framed by bougainvillea, which bursts gaudily into bloom for most of the year. With views of Hout Bay’s dramatic mountainscape, the balcony is the perfect venue for enjoying long, lazy, summer evenings or that morning cup of tea or coffee. (The complex also has a small communal pool for those hot summer days when not even an icecold cocktail will cut it.)

Inside, RivervieW is sunny and warm with a magnificent, fully kitted out kitchen (fit for a chef!) that has been equipped with top-of-the-range SMEG appliances, including an oven, hob, kettle, coffee machine, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, and fridge-freezer. There is also a breakfast bar for casual dining and then a stylish, sophisticated yet homey lounge with plasma flat-screen TV, full DSTV, and fast, complimentary Wi-Fi.

In terms of the interior design inspiration, it’s a “French flair, a touch rustic, with earthy tones – a very relaxing atmosphere!”

Luxuriously appointed bedroom and bathroom

Luxuriously appointed bedroom and bathroom

RivervieW is a one-bedroom apartment and so we have spared little expense in creating a tranquil and luxurious oasis out of this space, complete with queensized bed fitted with the softest Egyptian cotton linen. The bathroom has a walkin shower with two showerheads (one is hand-held) and you’ll find everything you need to enjoy a self-catering holiday here, including hairdryer, Egyptian cotton towels, and beach towels.

Ideal location for shopping, touristing, and beach lovers

With dk villas’ RivervieW apartment being located a short stone’s throw from Hout Bay’s main road and beach, you could scarcely find a more convenient location from which to explore the treasures of this historic valley.

Ideal location for shopping, touristing, and beach lovers

There’s Hout Bay beach, a long stretch of sugary white sand embraced on either side by striking mountain scenery: the world famous Chapman’s Peak to the east and the Sentinel to the west. The harbour area itself is the beating heart of this historic fishing village and there are plenty of restaurants, fish and chip shops, and local arts and crafts markets to explore. But if it’s the bracing sea air you’re after, the harbour’s piers are long and accessible…just keep a respectful distance from the sea lions that like to hang out there!

Although RivervieW has every amenity you could possibly need to whip-up a fivestar meal, if you don’t feel like cooking there are is no shortage of fabulous restaurants to dine at, from cheap and casual takeaway joints to the absolutely legendary La Colombe, which has been voted amongst the world’s 50 best restaurants for several years!

You can also get thoroughly pampered at the spa right next door to RivervieW, or, if it’s nightlife you’re after, head down to one of the several bars Hout Bay has to offer…or into downtown Cape Town, which is only 20 minutes away by car.

Hout Bay’s harbour market has become a huge, city-wide hit with locals and tourists alike; and there’s a gin distillery AND a brewery right next door. But if you’re more of a wine person, Hout Bay has a couple of wineries to experience (Hout Bay Vineyards, for example) and the nearby historic Constantia wine route, which has 10 wine farms.

The perfect addition to the dk villas portfolio
