Traditional South African Braai

A braai – cooking your meat outdoors over the open fire – is one a quintessential South African experience, and we are able to curate this for you in our beautiful garden setting with its sea and mountain views.

Melissa is a farmer, and as they say in Africa, you can take the farmer out of the farm but you can’t take the farm out of the farmer! Dissatisfied with the quality and flavour of meat in the city, she orders carcasses of various kinds (usually springbok, eland and kudu) and makes a variety of very traditional meat products: biltong, a dried meat staple; boerewors, a delicious juicy sausage; sosaties, meat cubes on a skewer in traditional marinade, as well as braai cuts like fillet and the good old burger.

“Owners Alana and Melis, a South African farmer, treated us to a memorable braai meal on the first night – her cooking skills rival those of a trained chef! From a delightful 4-course feast featuring ceviche, tuna steak, ribeye, to a surprise dolci, every bite was a delight. Definitely a culinary highlight!” – Martha, Nov 2023

Cyphia is a genus of flowering plants in the bellflower family, endemic to Africa, which is fitting for a property that is almost entirely indigenous and often, with plants endemic to this particular sand dune area.

4 Cyphia Close comprises 3 wooden cabins perched on the mountain side and finished during the lockdown. Each accommodation is intended to carry a small footprint and be experienced as cabin perched in the natural surroundings of mountains and fynbos.

The magical garden and outdoor spaces are a key highlight of this property, designed by a talented local garden designer to be entirely indigenous and mostly local fynbos growing in this specific area. It boasts a beautiful natural rock eco pool, outdoor sitting and eating areas and an outdoor firepit, with endless views of the mountains and sea from various angles, and abundant birdlife and local wildlife (spot the frogs, mongeese and caracals).

The garden area includes a kitchen garden, composting section, rainwater harvesting, walkways and paths, and has been designed with long term sustainability in mind, particularly with Cape Town being a water scarce environment.

There is direct access to the Sandy Bay Dunes Nature Reserve via a back gate on the property, where guests can walk about 200m up the hill, onto the sand dunes and down to Sandy Bay and across to Llundudno along the hiking paths, as well as onto the Shipwreck Trail. The top of the dunes are popular with groups and families for picnics. Please look out for the sign to the beach, follow the path behind the main house (not by the deck and pool) and respect our privacy.

If you’re a surfer, Sandy Bay and Llundudno are both in walking distance. If you’re a family with kids and dogs, welcome to heaven. This place is a paradise for hikers, trail runners and cyclists, and even the less fit can enjoy an almost flat walk (from the top of the dunes) along the contour of the mountain, with incredible views across to Camps Bay, the 12Apostles and Lions Head. This location literally cannot be beaten.
