The Chocolate Box


Located directly across the waters of False Bay from Cape Town, Gordon’s Bay is an often overlooked, old-fashioned seaside resort, but one which packs a real punch. The brightest star in town is the exquisite Chocolate Box, which offers a wonderful outlook and wonderful service from Olaf & Brad, your extraordinarily good hosts. A luxury home from home with designer touches throughout and home-cooked cuisine, where better place to retire to for the night after a day spent exploring the nearby coastal drives, sandy beaches & penguin colonies?


Our Thoughts

A proper boutique hotel, use the Chocolate Box as the perfect base from which to explore the very up-and-coming Helderberg region, home to award-winning wine estates, golf courses and mountain adventures. Make time to enjoy a fascinating art tour with owner and expert Brad.

The Chocolate Box has just seven beautiful suites, set over three stylish floors.
