Our beach house is one of 40 in the unique beachside community of Bakoven, which is the most exclusive neighborhood in Camps Bay and just a 10 minute drive into the center of Cape Town. Our home is directly under the crane in this picture.
A fynbos garden, a sandbox, a kiddie slide, two stories of handmade Moroccan tiles by Popham Design, and a magnificent backdrop of Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles
The front entryway, featuring art by local Cape Town artist Paul Semyol, a turquoise blue metal commode by Johannesburg's Dokter & Misses, and a handmade carpet from Morocco
A bright and spacious kitchen, featuring bright colors, African wax fabrics, a solid oak table made by hand in Cape Town, and lighting from France
The living room is oriented around a fireplace of Popham Design handmade tiles from Morocco, plus comfy seating, vintage lighting from France, and colorful throws made by hand in Malawi.
The master bedroom opens onto a private terrace that is the perfect place to watch the sun set. The room has alternating panels of sky blue and deep green, and it features a 1960s Mies van der Rowe daybed, rugs from Morocco and Malawi, and pop art from Los Angeles.
The master bathroom has a walk-in shower, a huge bathtub, dedicated closets, and his and hers sinks.
This bright and sunny room overlooks the garden, including its trademark Milkwood tree, with the 12 Apostles as its backdrop.
This bedroom features Danish lighting, a fun yellow and white Moroccan pom pom rug, and a sliding door that opens to the crashing ocean.
The ocean is omnipresent in our beach house in Cape Town. Our home is oriented due west, and it is such a joy to enjoy the sunset each evening as the sun drifts below the horizon.
