Bliss Cottage is situated in the Blaauwberg Region, 19 km north of Cape Town.  Only 300 m from the front door, you can enjoy the sandy white beaches of the  Blaauwberg Coast which arguably offers the most spectacular views of Table Mountain across Table Bay as well as  Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela and many other political prisoners were incarcerated.

Within a radius of 1-10 km you’ll find a wide variety of bars, restaurants, shopping malls, cinemas, a very well-equipped Virgin Active gym as well as two links golf courses.

The beachfront is a year-round hotspot for jogging, cycling, roller-blading, and kite-surfing. On nearby Rietvlei nature reserve you can windsurf and water-ski, while the many beaches in the vicinity are a favourite hangout for local surfers.  Mountain-biking and hiking are available at Koeberg Nature Reserve where you can spot Springbok, Eland,  Zebra, Bontebok, Blesbok, angulated tortoises and even the odd Cape Cobra, to name but a few.

Blaauwberg is also the  gateway to the Cape West Coast where the annual flower season in Spring (August to October) remains one of nature’s most magnificent displays of beauty.  Between August and November you may even spot whales playing in the bay.

Only 400 m from the front door, you can hop onto the new and frequent My CiTi bus service at the Shell Road feeder station.  This  means that you can get to and from the airport without a vehicle, enjoy a stress-free ride to the city centre, the Gardens & the V&A Waterfront where a myriad of tourist and sight-seeing opportunities are on offer.  Here you can also catch the ever popular City Hop-on, Hop-off double-decker open-top sightseeting bus – the easy, fun way to explore the city and Peninsula’s sights.
