185 on Beach, Gordon’s Bay, Western Cape
My stay at the 185 on Beach was nothing short of amazing. Located on Beach Road in Gordon’s Bay, there are few better locations in the area.

The town is located 50 km away from Cape Town and forms part of the Helderberg area. Gordon’s Bay is considered to be one of the many gems that lie just outside Cape Town and regularly see many visitors from around the world.
After driving down a long winding road I quickly realised the beauty that Gordon’s Bay has to offer. The drive took us past several guest houses, each stunning in their own right. When I was parked in front of the 185 on Beach, I was truly blown away at what I saw.

I was delighted to find out that I would be spending the night in their Seaside Penthouse Suite. The view of the marina as well as the other side of Gordon’s Bay can be seen from the patio. The sound of the waves breaking was a constant reminder of the perfect location I was staying in.
The pool area is the epitome of luxury. I was delighted to sit back and relax on one of their deck chairs and soak in the views.
The apartments are owned by Lifetime Achievement Awardee for Entertainment, Richard Loring, and his wife Jeanette. Even though the owners were on the other side of the world during my stay, Jeanette was eager to let me know about all the top activities and restaurants within the town. It is clear to see why the 185 on Beach has been awarded TripAdvisor winner for the past seven years.
My only regret during my stay is that I could only spend one night. I would highly recommend a stay at the 185 on Beach Apartments.
