We are perched right at the water's edge at 'The View, Sunny Cove' (aka 'Tudor House By the Sea'), just a few minutes' stroll along the coastal walkway from Fish Hoek's gorgeous beach.
Just below us is the gorgeous rockpool pathway known as the Cat Walk and, right ahead, a magnificent panoramic vista across the full breadth of False Bay to the mountains of the Overberg.
Sleeping six people in three comfortable bedrooms, the apartment features a fully equipped kitchen, modern bathroom with bathtub and shower and an open-plan living area opening onto a spacious and sunny north-facing deck.
Catch the sunrise over the ocean, watch whales from the deck in the winter months and dolphins and seals year-round in the bay below, or take in the superb views over sundowners.
A short meander along the Cat Walk leads you past crystal clear rock pools to Fish Hoek's long, white-sand beach. One of the safest on the False Bay coast, a shark-net makes it particularly ideal for swimming, snorkelling and body surfing.
Sheltered benches and lawns along the walkway make it a sunbather’s paradise, with a magnificent view of all the action and quick access to the water for a refreshing dip.
The Upper Deck’s central location on the Cape Peninsula means that all of Cape Town's main attractions are within a 35-minute scenic drive, including the Table Mountain Cable Way, V&A Waterfront, the Two Oceans Aquarium, Robben Island, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Chapman's Peak, the Cape of Good Hope (Cape Point), Boulder's Beach penguin colony and the Constantia winelands.
We are flanked on either side by the picturesque harbour villages of Kalk Bay and Simonstown, each only a few kilometres away and offering an abundance of chic terrace cafes, restaurants, antiquities and amenities to suit every need. They are connected by scenic road, shore-hugging railway and a beautiful coastal walk which takes in the surfing spots of Clovelly and Glencairn beaches, as well as two beautiful tidal pools.
There is always something in the Bay to catch one's attention - seals, rock fishermen and snorkellers, picturesque fishing boats hauling their catch of yellowtail onto the beach, whales breaching and blowing during breeding season. False Bay is a wing-foil and surf-ski enthusiast's heaven. Watch them at play while sunning yourself on your deckchair.
Want to be there too? Visit the friendly Fish Hoek Bay Sports Club on the beach to join a coaching session, or sign up for a Miller's Downwind run. Guides and rental equipment can also be found in the village centre.

Our sparkling waters, white sandy beaches, rocky shores and unique mountain backdrop offer something for everyone. There are safe swimming beaches and sheltered tidal pools, thundering waves and world-class surf spots. We have sunshine - lots of it - the whole year round, even in winter when warm and windless blue-sky days often stretch into weeks between brief, wild storms. When the summer trade winds blow, you can always find a sheltered spot to catch a suntan; in autumn and winter the Southern Right and Humpback whales visit…watch their antics as you breakfast on the deck.
A multiplicity of terrace cafes and restaurants caters to all tastes and pockets, there are antiques and collectables, museums, theatres and art galleries and an antique steam train traversing the spectacular shoreline railway track every second Sunday. There are three beautiful golf courses (Simons Town, Clovelly and Westlake) in close proximity to our apartment, and several others are no more than an hour’s drive away. For animal lovers and twitchers, the nature reserves and coastal wetlands offer rich opportunities for birdwatching and game viewing.
Situated in the Table Mountain National Park, we have many wonderful hikes and superlative coastal strolls to suit all levels of fitness. The mountain chain is criss-crossed by trail-running routes with spectacular and ever-changing views. It’s a magnet for paragliders as well as rock-climbers, who can challenge themselves at all grades of difficulty on either sandstone cliffs or granite boulders.

Our coastline offers surfing spots for everyone, stand-up paddling, wing-foiling, sea-kayaking, catamaran-sailing and kite-surfing. You can snorkel, spearfish, scuba-dive on old wrecks, charter a yacht or go deep-sea game fishing. You can try angling from the rocks or shark-cage diving…or canter a horse along beautiful white-sand beaches.
We have fantastic rock-climbing and hiking routes right here on our doorstep. Through your windows you can see Elsie's Peak just behind us, and Trappies Kop at the other end of the beach. And for road cyclists and mountain bikers we offer unrivalled views and unlimited scope - make The Upper Deck your base for the famous Cape Town Cycle Tour!
Cape Town is a paradise for surf-ski paddlers and our Fish Hoek Bay Sports Club is a hive of surf-ski activity. Groups of paddlers can be seen every evening heading out towards Simonstown around the point at Sunny Cove. The bay itself is perfect for beginners, especially on our warm winter days when the water is calm and the visibility infinite. A very active surf-ski school operates on Saturdays from the comfortable and welcoming clubhouse, from which ski’s can be hired at reasonable rates. Heard about 'The Miller's Run'? The iconic and world-famous 'Miller's Downwind' is a 12km rollercoaster surf-ski ride past Roman Rock lighthouse in mid-ocean, passing right below you at The Upper Deck to end on the beach at the clubhouse. If you are a paddler and this is on your bucket list, an affordable shuttle service for you and your ski runs from the Club (where you can park) to the start at Miller's Point slipway. Join the locals who do this multiple times a week and grab the opportunity for an unforgettable experience. Lacking confidence or skill? The Club has coaches & guides who charge reasonable rates to help you follow your dream.
From the picturesque fishing harbour of Kalk Bay to the Victorian naval base at Simon's Town, from Surfer’s Corner to the famous penguin colony at Boulders Beach, you’ll need a lifetime to explore it all.
