Open since 2012 and already legendary, this is the Kite Mansion Cape Town!

A rich, luxurious designer loft villa awaits you with stylish guest rooms, huge living room with kitchen, braai (BBQ) area, rooftop pool (from here you can see all the way from the spot to Table Mountain.)

The Mansion is located in Sunset Beach, just 100 meters from the beach and one of the best kitesurfing spots in Cape Town.

In addition there is a designated guide who tells you not only where to go kitesurfing, but also brings the guests together to make the best out of your stay and regularly coordinates fun activities with you. Also your non-kitesurfing company will welcome this; Cape Town is fun for everyone!

Of course you can also take kitesurfing courses – whether you are looking for beginner, intermediate or special courses, for example kitesurfing in the waves of Cape Town with some kitesurfing pros.

Kitesurfing in Cape Town – Spots

The west coast, north of Cape Town offers a variety of spots for all tastes and skills. Since the wind is amplified there by different thermal and topographic effects, a distance of just a few kilometers already has a great impact on the conditions.

Right outside the door you will find the Sunset Beach, a spot that would actually be enough for a two-week kite trip. Depending on the swell, there are waves from one to several meters. Sunset Beach is more suitable for advanced kitesurfer. Unlike St. Peter Ording with its “choppy chaos”, you will find nice, long, “glassy-flats” in between the waves. You can really take a run for the next wave kicker.

The bay starting on Sunset Beach runs approximately one mile long to Blouberg beach. This bay is again divided into different sections. The names you’ve probably heard before: Dolphin Beach, Table View, Kitebeach. You probably already noticed it: he next key word is downwinder…
Sunset is the perfect base for starting a downwinder up north.

Ahead of Blouberg beachyou will pass some heavy cliffs, only very experienced riders should pass here. Passing the cliffs you will get to the Big Bay with other conditions.

The wind starts at noon (so you can sleep late or relax in the morning exploring the area) and hits the south – homespot Sunset Beach – at first. Generelly the further north you go, the less wind.

Quite different conditions can be found at the shallow water spot of Langebaan. Here in about an hour drive from the Mansion, even beginners will find a beautiful lagoon area, but it can get busy, especially during high season.


Courses / Gear

Kitesurfing courses

We grant a guaranteed realization of the course!

Should there be less participants for the course, the course will still take place and the price stays the same. However, the instruction hours will be reduced to nine (beginners course) and four (advanced course).

Kitesurfing gear

Kitecenter

Your kite instructors will also live in the mansion and depending on the conditions you will be driving to the ideal spot for the day. Theroy lessons will be held in the garden or the living room so you will be able to just stay sit after the lessons and discuss about your experiences or just to hang out and grab a beer or such.


3 days Beginner courses in Cape Town

The first day of the beginner course you will get a short introduction into the theory of kitesurfing before heading to one of the spots in Cape Town, Blouberg or Melkbos for the first attempts with a traninee kite. The second day you will again be at one of those spots. On day three the course will take place in the flat (and a bit warmer) lagoon in Langebaan.

The course can be booked by all of you who already can handle the kite safely and have had the first attepmts with the board on the water. If you have special wishes, like learning your first jumps, unhooked, waveboard strapless etc, this could be a part of the course. Depending on the conditions the courses are held in Cape Town, Blouberg or Melkbos.

Accommodations

KiteWorldWide Mansion Cape Town

This loft-style villa in Sunset Beach, just 100 meters from the beach and the famous, Parking 1 ‘away, did impress us immediately. indeed that impressed, that we decided to take the Mansion under contract for the next years.

The high ceiling in the great living room makes for a bright atmosphere. Along with chill sofas, a large flat screen TV for you to watch the pics of the day or the last kitesurfing movies, create an immediate feeling of community.

In the large, fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator compartments for each room you can easily prepare your favorite breakfast.
For the evening dinner there are several options. Of course you can make use of one of the many kitchen facilities, and cook your dinner at home: Gas stove, oven, microwave, toaster, cofee machine and not to forget, the great BBQ grill.

Last but not least you should spend some of your evenings visiting the many restaurants in and around Cape Town. Be prepared for the most amazing food at unbeatable prices.

Your guide on site will give the best tips on where to go!

Oh, and did we mention the large sun roof terrace with the view of Table Mountain and the kite spot? ‘Of course’ also found here on the roof of Sunset Beach and the pool house can you see a portion of the Atlantic Ocean.

Since the Mansion was designed and built by a Kitesufer there is also a storage garage and outdoor garden shower. (Kitestorage fee? Not in the KiteWorldWide Mansion. You store your stuff for free!)

Rounding out the house with chic, comfortable guest rooms, all with a private bathroom with shower / WC.

In the common areas, WiFi is available, which in perfect for checking your emails (and wind ;) ) ranges, but please do not expect the European speed and reliability.

Rooms

You have of course access to the common rooms: Living and chill room, kitchen, rooftop terrace with pool and the garden. Since the Mansion was built by a Kitesurfer there is also a garage for equipment storage for free and a outdoor garden shower to clean your quiver and have a quick shower yourself.

Chic, comfortable guest rooms await you, all with a private bathroom with shower / WC. Included is also the daily cleaning of the common rooms as well as your own room, comofrtable bed linen towels. Should you need to wash clothes, this can be arranged at an additional fee by the housekeepers.

In the common areas, WiFi is available, which doesn’t range the European speed and reliability, but it’s sufficient for checking your emails (and wind ;)).

There are three types of rooms available. We will try to consider your request for a double bed or twin bed (two singles), but cannot guarantee this (if it is already booked ;)).

Premium Room

These 25 square meter big rooms are situated on the ground floor, and can accomodate up to two persons. Two out of three have an access to the garden. Comfortable beds (twin or double bed) with luxurious feather beds for the best sleep you could ask for.

Surely all Premium rooms come with an own comfortable bathroom with a warm water shower, toilet and electronic safe. Two rooms are connected through a door and are thus perfectly suitable for groups or families.

Deluxe Room

These bright, 20-40 square meter rooms are located on the first floor. Some also have an extra bed and can accommodate up to three people. The third bed is not as comfortable as the others and should not be planned for the 2 meter person among you.

Every Deluxe room comes with a comfortable bathroom with a warm water shower, toilet and an electronic safe. Two rooms are connected by a door. This makes this suite ideal for the young family with up to two children.

Breakfast – as you wish

The Mansion offers you a large, well equipped kitchen. Of course included housekeeping that will take care of the dishes and daily cleaning. ;) In this way you are always completely flexible, you can eat whatever you want whenever you want. Only two minutes away by car, ten minutes by foot, you will find a great supermarket with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and everything else you need.

Prices

The prices always include the airport transfer and KiteWorldWide tour guide who will always provide you with useful tips for kiting and other activities in and around Cape Town.

Further activities in South Africa

Included in the Price

Program and support from KiteWorldWide guide

The entire kite season, from 1 November to 15 April there is a German KiteWorldWide guide with you on the spot. He knows everything there is to know about surfing, eating out and doing further activities in and around Cape Town.

Regularly we offer activities and excursions, where you can join in on the convoy with your stylish classic car.

Among other things we go to the Biscuit Mill Market for feasting and shopping, to Langebaan for kitesurfing and endulging yourself in the great fish and seafood experience at the beach restaurant. Further on we visit the cape, try different wine, go to the city or the east side of the peninsula to the Indian Ocean.

Your guide is also a well-informed partner when it comes to other, exhilarating activities. Skydiving, shark diving, helicopter flights – even in combat mode, paragliding, abseiling, bungee jumping. Who ever gets bored during their stay here, is to blame themselves.

The activities are timed for you to undertake activities in the morning and be back in time for the upcoming south easter wind at the Mansion.

In this way, also your non-kiter company has a lot to do on a Cape Town vacation.

Not included in the price

Food and dining in Cape Town

During our trip to Cape Town we had the idea of offering gourmet travel during low season – since the quality of food at the restaurants in and around Cape Town is just amazingly good. When you experience it, you will very unlikely be keen on dining in a hotel or preparing something by yourself. You will not be able to prepare such great meals for a lower price than offered in the restaurants. Here the food is not cheap, but for its quality extremely low priced.

You can get perfectly grilled 300 g beef fillets for twelve Euros, seafood plates for less than ten Euros and a delicious bottle of wine from South Africa for five Euros. Several times a week, we will reserve seats in the best restaurants in town and who wants to go out and dine in a group is always invited to join.

Once a week we organize a typical South African Braai (BBQ) in the garden of the Mansion.

In addition we offer „gourmet- happenings” – for example the Old Bisquit Mill market every Saturday Morning or a ten course meal with fish and seafood in an amazing beach restaurant called Strandloper located in Langebaan.

Surely all those activities are perfectly timed so that you have enough time for burning as much calories on the water as you can.

Going out and Nightlife

Everyone who has enough power left, will get one’s money worth in the evening and night. During the summer months (our winter) Cape Town is the advertising – and film Mecca. Top Models and staff of the production companies get the party started in Camps Bay. And along the Long Street pubs, clubs and bars are right next to each other.
