The Long Beach is a superb small luxury boutique hotel situated in the picturesque lobster-fishing village of Kommetjie in the Southern Cape peninsula, approximately 40-45 minutes drive from central Cape Town. It is ideal for those looking for a beach hotel that is away from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town city center and who enjoy open spaces, great views and long walks. It is available to book on an individual daily-room basis or as an entire villa to share with family and friends.

The natural scenery is breathtaking with miles and miles of deserted beach on the doorstep and spectacular uninterrupted views across the sea to Hout Bay and Table Mountain. The emphasis is on personal service, in a relaxed informal atmosphere and the hosts can arrange personalized tours to any of the Cape’s many attractions. The Long Beach has its own chef who will prepare sumptuous dinners three times a week.

It is an unspoiled paradise in which to walk, ride horses, surf or simply laze in the sun. From the inviting pool or your private deck you can watch whales frolic a hundred meters off shore and in season, you can catch your own lobster and request it for dinner. Kommetjie is one of the premier surfing and marine birding hotspots in South Africa and has the country’s tallest cast iron lighthouse open to the public.


Accommodation at the Long Beach comprises three elegant premier suites and three superior double rooms all with excellent en-suite facilities and private terrace or balcony. The rooms have fresh neutral decor and large windows offering fabulous views of the peninsula.
