While both modern and minimalist, Waterline was designed first and foremost with comfort in mind.

With a focus on entertaining, the 500 square meter house is built around a spacious living, dining and kitchen area on the upper level, which lead onto two outside terraces with stunning views of the sea, mountains and vineyards.

This unique and contemporary home Waterline, has proven to be a very sought after location for both stills and Film Shoots. Managed superbly by Sonja, this property’s modern elements and beautiful clean lines have made it an easy suggestion for all our clients’ briefs.

Hi Sonja, we thoroughly enjoyed the house and the beautiful location. We hope to be back soon (and that saying nice words do not get the price up).

We loved WATERLINE.  It truly was paradise. Sonja and Philip were fantastic hosts too. I will sign post any South Africa bound clients in your direction for sure. I just wanted to say thank you again. It was such an enjoyable experience and I’m hugely grateful for all the accommodations you made for us throughout the process! I really look forward to referring Waterline on to future clients (and hopefully staying there again!).

We can’t thank you enough!

Our family have stayed at Waterline twice now and each holiday far exceeded expectations.  The house is beautiful with everything you could possibly need supplied.  The views are breathtaking, the beach is right on the doorstep and the surroundings are superb.  The house is close enough to the nightlife in Cape Town but feels like it is out in the countryside surrounded by mountains and sea.  Each holiday ended far too soon as there was too much to do but we found it difficult to leave the house!  It’s the perfect place to unwind, spoil the family and get the most out of Cape Town.

We also took advantage of the private chef on offer and the most amazing dinner party was catered for us and our friends, without lifting a finger.

Very, very cool beach house with enormous WOW factor!

We stayed at WATERLINE in April and it was the perfect destination to chill out by the beach and use as a base to explore the rest of the Cape but still be within an easy (and beautiful) drive to Cape Town.  I build luxury villas myself and so have a critical eye, but WATERLINE didn’t skip a beat: chic modern architecture with no expense spared on the details and finishes combined with well thought out and striking interior design and furniture.  All this combined made our stay at WATERLINE just perfect.  Strongly recommended to anyone who appreciates the very best.

Wonderful Waterline nestled in Noordhoek.  What a beautiful home to stay in! From all its modern features and gorgeous decor, being close to the sea sure helps too! This stunning house is an absolute dream for a weekend away or any holiday break you need.

Waterline is everything you can wish for in a holiday setting, the perfect combination of pure luxury, sophistication and style.  The open plan design makes for easy entertaining and the spectacular panoramic views of mountain and sea can be viewed from all parts of the house. We have had the most magnificent holidays in both summer and winter at Waterline. Cannot wait to experience the breath taking sunsets again.

Waterline is a little slice of heaven; every detail has been well thought out and executed to perfection. The location is ideal to enjoy the surrounding areas including the quaint town of Noordhoek. Our family enjoyed our few days at Waterline and we can’t wait to return. We only wish it wasn’t on the other side of the world.

This is an excellent home away from home. Design well thought out. Absolutely functional and the outdoor showers are breath-taking. Beautiful ocean view and a less than 3 min walk to the white sandy beach. Absolute dream holiday home for the family.

Excellent service. Warm welcome. Deserves a prestige rating.

We stayed over the Christmas/ New Year period and couldn’t rate Waterline in more superlative terms. It is quite simply the perfect property from which to enjoy Cape Town from.

We absolutely loved the property’s prime location in Noordhoek, stunning views and fresh scent of the sea, dramatic vistas of Chapman’s Peak and yet all the space and modern comfort which this amazing property offers. We found the proximity to Cape Town perfect for our family, especially for the busy holiday season when it was so nice not to have to drive through traffic every day.

The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and bathrooms were reminiscent of the most comfortable, luxurious Asian resorts which we have stayed at (the large wooden doors and windows and dramatic views, coupled with the Asian/ Zen atmosphere throughout the property really reminded us of some of the nicest Aman resorts in Asia).

The kitchen, electricals and lighting throughout the house gave the feel of real comfort and everything was easy to use and to find. The property, having been done up to the highest spec, felt extremely secure and safe at all times.

The outdoor spaces are extremely generous and offer excellent and different spaces – all extremely useful for families who might have different parties/ children with friends who might require separate areas to spend time together- and also extremely useful when entertaining friends.

The charm of the property also lies in the fact one can enjoy a secluded and private area facing the beach – and yet at the same time not feel isolated. Very important for families such as our’s who live in the busy city and crave raw natural beauty but at the same time want to be a short hop “from the action” of downtown Cape Town.

The restaurants in the local area are excellent, there’s excellent shopping nearby and it was so good to be able to take walks on the stunning beach on your doorstep and ride a horse when we wished.

We really couldn’t think of a better place to stay, relax and from which to enjoy Cape Town and the surrounding area. A real gem of a property in breathtaking location.

The presentation of the property was excellent, I really couldn’t fault it. Housekeeping was superb, the property felt clean and all round first impressions were top notch.

We loved our nights at WATERLINE.  The showers were wonderful, the house beautiful and it has a good vibe to it.
We had a great stay and thank you for the short booking notice . We’ve passed your details to 3 different people already!  They loved the photos.

We stayed at Waterline for a week in March, and we can’t speak highly enough of the place. The house itself has been put together immaculately, with a perfect balance of being both very comfortable but also feeling like you’re staying somewhere very nice and very special. The location goes without saying, with Noordhoek’s famous beach a short stroll away and with Chapman’s Peak just to your right, you’re in one of Cape Towns loveliest settings.

What we particularly liked about our stay was that we hosted two large get togethers on separate occasions, using two totally different parts of the house. Firstly we used the deck for a wonderful braai, wining and dining on the deck, followed a couple of days later by evening drinks by the pool and a superb dinner inside. We had 10-15 people on each occasion very comfortably. We will surely look to stay at Waterline again on our future trips to the Cape having built so many wonderful memories from our time there.
