Pelican House

Pelican House is indeed a Perfect Hideaway, hidden away in a tropical garden, nestled between Victoria Road & Kloof Road. You do need a degree of fitness for this hideaway as it is on Clifton Steps so offers some incidental cardio-vascular exercise when returning from a laze on the beach.

My first impression was wow. I love places that are colourful and charming, with all kinds of things whimsical. Collections gathered on the owners travels and love of beautiful objects are abundantly apparent.

And how we love the wallpapers. From the banana leaves in the lounge to palm fronds in the bathroom. And our absolute favourite has to be the house’s namesake – the huge Pelican taking pride of place on the bathroom wall.

Whilst it is not the biggest home it is certainly designed for good living . With the main living space centred around a courtyard garden and pool there is plenty of room for relaxing on loungers or under the pergola in the shade . Whilst the beach is only a short stroll down the steps, it is quite a hike back up so do remember that as you pack your beach bag! You won’t need to leave here too often as it really is quiet and a perfect spot for some real downtime.
