With views across the extraordinary Clifton beaches and Lion's Head, Cape Cove is an enchanting, warm and vibrant home with a stunning pool terrace!
Stepping inside you will be immediately struck by the space and vitality of this immense home, with bold artworks on the walls and rich coloured furniture. The facilities across this designer apartment are superb, in particular this gourmet kitchen in which you can prepare all kinds of feasts in paradise, with a huge amount of space thanks to this central island which doubles up as a rather stylish breakfast bar. Underfloor heating throughout and two fireplaces will ensure your absolute comfort, whether you fancy relaxing at these extensive sofas or gathering for a meal at this glamorous dining area! Your dedicated villa hosts are on hand to provide a variety of concierge services to ensure your stay is as stress-free and fun as possible!
There are four magnificent bedrooms, including two with impressive king-size beds, and two with a set of twin beds each. The master suite is up on the first floor with glorious sea-views, including a fabulous freestanding bathtub, while the second double room is located on the main floor and the twin rooms are on the garden level. The designs throughout are opulent, with delicate light colours, long beautiful drapes and vast windows and patio doors. Accompanying each spacious room is a superb ensuite bathroom with a large bathtub and separate shower in each: a soft travertine marble finish complements the natural rock and sand hues to create a blissful environment, and with essential toiletries and high-quality towels refreshed daily you will find these facilities a joy to use! What’s more all four rooms also enjoy direct access to the fabulous garden, whether to the pool deck or to the quaint, private courtyard or a balcony looking out over the sea – all are equally wonderful for a spot to soak up the sunshine and sea-breeze!
For sunbathing, socialising and swimming in perfect privacy, step out into your sublime garden, where a whole host of delightful furniture sits silhouetted against the magnificent backdrop of the ocean! This exquisite private pool sparkles in the sunshine and invites you to cool off in its refreshing depths. Across your sublime terrace are fantastic loungers for a little sunbathing, alfresco dining and ideal casual seating where you can just sit back in comfort and roll with the gentle unfolding of the day with the most wonderful views.
Just five minutes away from the incredible Clifton beach and a whole host of shops and restaurants, Cape Cove is perfectly located for a traditional beach holiday on one of the world’s best beaches.
Set into a perfectly protected cove and right on the lower slopes of Lion’s Head, Clifton is one of the most exclusive areas of the city. The four Clifton beaches are famous for their natural beauty, spectacular scenery and gentle waves year-round and its fourth beach even enjoys Blue Flag status.
As you’re only about a 15 minutes’ drive from both the City Bowl and the V&A Waterfront, you’re ideally located to get out and about to the many stunning sights of the city. As well as this, just to the south is Camps Bay, where you will find plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes, as well as, of course, more beaches! And for pure practicality, the airport is also only around 40 minutes away.
At the V&A Waterfront, a retail and entertainment area right at the foot of Table Mountain, you will discover tons of shops, restaurants, markets of all kinds and even both an Aquarium and Marine Museum. It is the starting point for almost all tours, cruises and excursions. Within a short walk of here is the Green Point market, tucked just outside the Green Point Stadium. Visit on Sundays to find locals selling all kinds of authentic arts, craft and curios!
Or, for a more active day out, why not head up Table Mountain – you can take the cable car (or a 2 to 3 hour very steep walk!) up to the top, where 2km of paths can be wandered giving you panoramic views of the city and Table Bay. There’s even a restaurant up here for dining with a view!
The Table Mountain National Park itself comprises several areas of interest along the peninsula, including Cape Hope and Cape Point, and is bursting with fascinating wildlife including ostriches, antelopes and baboons, and of course breath-taking scenery! The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens make for another fantastic day in nature, with remarkable views and a diverse array of plants, forest and gardens across 528 hectares!
Cape Point itself offers miles of dramatic coastline scenery, including golden beaches of soft sands, peaks and valleys rich in fertile land and an interesting history, where again you can see fascinating wildlife! Of course, one on the region’s most iconic locations is Boulders Beach, home to a colony of thousands of African penguins which you can watch and admire in their natural habitat, and it’s only around an hour from the villa! Top tip – head over in September during breeding season to try to catch a glimpse of penguins hatching! And if it’s wildlife you’re after, within around 2 hours of the city you can even go on safari!
If you’re a fan of wine you already know South Africa is unmissable – what you might not know is that Groot Constantia, an estate in the Constantia Valley dating back to 1685, is the oldest winemaking region in the southern hemisphere! In this exquisite valley, you will find not only vineyards but also countless excellent restaurants to enjoy along the way! As well as wine, Cape Town and its surrounding region are major fruit producers and you can enjoy some of the freshest, most delicious fruits around here. As you’d expect, there is also tons of seafood, including yellowtail, cape salmon and kingklip, which are absolutely delicious.
