An African Villa

Found in: Apartments / Villas, Cape Town, City Bowl, Cottages, Guesthouses / B&B, Honeymoon Destinations, Self Catering, Tamboerskloof, Western Cape

The Villa is placed in a quiet residential quarter with a lovely ‘village’ feel within a short stroll of the centre of Cape Town and a large number of its best restaurants.  Dating back to the late 1800’s the new building has been refurbished and decorated in a sophisticated contemporary style which has been dubbed “African Zen”. The house has the feel of an intimate boutique hotel because of its sophisticated African décor and generous facilities but the unique layout allows you to feel as though you are the guest of old friends on an urban safari.

A stroll around this fascinating house reveals a marvellous collection of reception rooms, staircases and individually decorated bedrooms. Three historic terrace houses linked together creating exceptionally generous spaces …

Guests are encouraged to walk through the kitchen and help themselves to beverages and snacks from an ‘honesty bar’ fridge and this is a lovely touch. Makes them feel as though they are part of the family!

In each room: Air conditioning/heating - Flat screen TV - Satellite TV (news, sports, movies) - Complimentary WiFi access - Hair Dryer - Tea/coffee station with cookies - Electronic safe - Luxury cotton percale linen - wakeup calls for an early start.

In the house: an honesty bar fridge - complimentary cake - help yourself port and sherry in the evenings - two computer stations for free emailing and browsing - breakfast packs for early departures.
