A warm welcome to everybody visiting Manor on the Bay's website.
I'd like to extend this welcome by inviting you to stay at our lovely guest house, situated on the white sandy beaches of Gordon's Bay. My husband and I would love to be a part of your memories and add some extra magic to your Western Cape experience.
I grew up in Paarl, studied in Stellenbosch and now live in Gordon's Bay - a good selection of the best South Africa has got to offer! Manor on the Bay offers a unique character, lovely ambience and friendly people making sure you have a most comfortable stay. It is a place that will have you experience this world differently and bring you closer to nature. Manor on the Bay - where you want to stay!
I was born and raised in the Western Cape. I spent the biggest part of my life in Stellenbosch, the heart of the Winelands. After I completed my law degree at Stellenbosch University, I travelled through Europe and Africa, before I continued my studies at Oxford.
During my time abroad I realised the true beauty of the Western Cape and its potential as a tourist paradise. I am now living a dream life, experiencing the quality of life the Western Cape offers. Qualities that make the Western Cape a better place to live than any other place I came across during my travels around the world.
My dream is for you, the guest, to visit us, discover and experience this paradise we live in, in the most convenient and well informed way.
It’s been a pleasure to be a part of the birth, nurturing, upgrading and growth of Manor on the Bay for the last 18 years. We opened our doors in Oct 2000 and it has been eleven interesting, challenging and blessed years!
Gordon’s Bay was our family’s holiday destination as a child, so this tranquil picturesque sea side village carries many happy memories of those carefree days. My husband and I both love travelling and therefore opening a guest house in Gordon’s Bay was the perfect location and choice of ‘work’ for me.
I love the diversity of the tourism and hospitality industry. It offers me the opportunity to deal with marketing, interior decorating, catering, gardening, finances and of course the privilege of hosting our wonderful visitors.
Where you want to stay!
