A spectacular penthouse overlooking the sublime second beach of Clifton, Cape Ridge is an immense home for six guests with a magnificent roof terrace complete with a private pool!
A grand set of double gates greets you at street level, leading you into private parking and from here into a lift up into the main villa. Your living space comprises an open-plan living and dining room with the most magical views across the sea. To one side there’s a lovely lounge with a sofa in front of the TV, facing the vast sea-front windows. Alongside this is an incredibly picturesque dining spot, with the best views and the most marvellous dining arrangement. Eight fabulously formal chairs are placed around a delightful large table, under elegant lighting and glistening in the natural light which floods through the huge retractable wall! In this area there’s also an incredible, fully-equipped kitchen with sparkling white fittings, a retro pastel fridge and tons of surface space for preparing all kinds of delicious treats and meals!
There are two main bedrooms, as well as a perfect kids’ room with a set of bunk beds. Both double rooms enjoy stunning sea views as well as access to a fantastic balcony! The master suite features a king-sized bed and a sublime ensuite bathroom. Meanwhile, in the second bedroom, there are two large single beds which can be prepared as a double if preferred. A second bathroom is shared between this room and the kids’ room. Both bathrooms are as crisp and elegant as the rest of this designer apartment, with white fittings and tasteful lighting. The master ensuite features a double vanity sink, large bathtub and a superb rain-shower so you can be sure of feeling fresh and pampered throughout your stay. All three bedrooms are also equipped with air-con to keep you the optimum temperature, while the two main rooms will also benefit from the sea breeze rolling in through the patio doors.
And finally, head up to this phenomenal roof terrace for the most spectacular spot for sunbathing, socialising and of course, swimming! An immense pool stretches for 15 meters across the length of the terrace, tempting you to dip into its refreshing depths and cool off in the warm sunshine. Casual seating and luxury loungers all around it ensure you can relax and unwind in this enchanting space, whether in the perfect shade of a parasol or out in the superb sunshine! Fire up this fantastic charcoal barbeque for an idyllic day of alfresco living – with a picturesque alfresco dining area too!
With a stay in the sublime Cape Ridge, you can be on the beach in seconds, making this a dream stay for beach lovers and families alike!
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, and your location here is truly hard to beat. The four Clifton beaches are famous for their natural beauty, spectacular scenery and gentle waves year-round and its 4th beach even enjoys Blue Flag status. What’s more, just north of the four Clifton beaches and also within walking distance is Bantry Bay and its Sea Point Promenade, ideal for gentle strolling or even jogging, all with the most magnificent views!
Within a short drive is the iconic V&A Waterfront, a retail and entertainment area right at the foot of Table Mountain with 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 – just be sure to barter, as they’ll be expecting you to!
If you like to hike at all, be sure to 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 one hour from the villa! Top tip – head over in September during breeding season to try catch a glimpse of penguins hatching! And if it’s wildlife you’re after, within around two hours of the city you can even go on safari!
Surfing (and kite-surfing) are, as you might expect, major sports in the area, thanks to the varied coastline made up of protected coves to huge open beaches with enormous waves, promising something for all levels! You can also take part in a little sea kayaking, where you have a good chance of spotting seals, penguins, dolphins – and even the odd whale! Or even take an official trip whale watching where you’re likely to see Southern right whales, bottlenose and dusky dolphin and occasionally even humpback and killer whales! As well as this there are loads more activities to take part in across the region, including helicopter rides, hot air ballooning, paragliding, shark cage diving and more, and you’ll find it all on offer at the V&A Waterfront!
