With homes dating back to the 1900s when a plot cost £5, Kommetjie is a small secluded coastal village with loads of character and charm.
These days, historic homes seamlessly blend together with the more contemporary homes of commuters that make their home here, 35km’s outside the city of Cape Town, in exchange for the quieter lifestyle away from the city.
Apart from the almost rural appeal of the village, Kommetjie is also well-known for its 5km stretch of white sandy beaches, waves popular with the surfing fraternity and superb crayfish from November to April. he Kommetjie beach also has a protected tidal pool perfect for toddlers and the beach is peaceful, even during peak season.
Kommetjie is self-sufficient but there is a shopping centre at Long Beach Mall, not even five kilometres away, en route to Fish Hoek along Kommetjie Road, which passes Imhoff Farm along the way - with its converted farm buildings providing a bakery, tea garden, craft shops, art studios and cheese dairy.
