Directions from Cape Town International Airport:
There is one major highway out of the airport - the N2, which leads directly to ; ;
central Cape Town. Follow this road (?10 minutes) until you see signboards indicating the Muizenberg/M3 turn-off. (Landmark – big mountain straight
ahead of you!)
The M3 highway at times looks like an ordinary main road with traffic lights ; ;
and different road names (e.g. Edinburgh Drive) and you will travel through suburbs such as Rondebosch, Newlands and Constantia, but just keep following the signs to Muizenberg and don’t turn off until you literally reach the end of the road at a big T-junction.
At the off-ramp turn left, again the sign points to Muizenberg. Ignore the sign ; ;
for Fish Hoek which points to the right. (Landmark – golf course ahead).
At the next T-junction turn right into the M4, Main Road. (Landmark – Stone-; ;
built house/antique shop on your left). The M4 takes you through Lakeside then along the coastline through Muizenberg, St James and Kalk Bay. (Landmark – the Kalk Bay Harbour on your left).
After Kalk Bay the road curves round to the right, Clovelly and Fish Hoek ; ;
beaches come into view on the left and you then reach a set of traffic lights where you will turn right into Clovelly Road. (Landmark – Beach and railway
line on your left).
Follow Clovelly Road over a couple of speed bumps and take the first road ; ;
right into Mountain/Marmion Avenue. The road curves steeply up to the right and doubles-back towards the sea. Go right along to the end. Clovelly Cottage is the last house on the road (cul-de-sac) and the entrance gate is down the short driveway to the left of the stone-built garage. With light traffic, the whole trip should take no more than 45 minutes. Please ; ;
note that at rush-hour (typically 07h00 – 09h00 and 16h00 – 18h00), cars
come to a virtual standstill on the main highways, and especially the M3 section.
