Villa Louise holds a lofty position on the roof of the elegant Cape Royale Hotel in Cape Town. Close to the Cape Town Stadium, cosmopolitan city centre and the bustling V&A Waterfront, this is an ideal base from which to explore South Africa’s most beautiful city.
With two comfortable en suite bedrooms, a slimline kitchen and terrace that lends itself to sunbathing and alfresco meals, Villa Louise allows you the freedom to enjoy your holiday according to your own preferences and schedule. The Cape Royale will also furnish you with the services of a butler, chef and driver, as well a complimentary Wi-Fi, parking and swimming pool access.
In sophisticated tones and replete with mid-century design classics, Villa Louise has a spacious 153m² interior, a fully-furnished terrace and its finger on the pulse of one of Cape Town’s most exciting neighbourhoods. From enjoying an espresso on your terrace as the sun rises over the harbour to returning for sundowners, this is your own pied-á-terre in the Mother City.

Expertly designed in a modern style that echoes the classics of the mid-twentieth century, Villa Louise has a neutral L-shaped sofa to sink into, deeply cushioned headboards and exciting wallpapers in blacks and champages. Art is modern with pops of bright colour, and whimsical touches like unusual lampstands and objet.
Green Point is one of the most sought-after enclaves on the renowned Atlantic Seaboard. A quirky combination of apartments, private homes, upmarket boutiques and fine-dining restaurants, it is a stone’s throw from drawcards such as the ever-popular V&A Waterfront shopping complex, the Cape Town Stadium, the Sea Point Promenade and the eco-friendly Green Point Urban Park. Its main artery is Somerset Road, which is banked by quirky retailers and trendy complexes. Green Point is less than a 10-minute drive to the buzzing city centre, and about 10 minutes’ drive from Table Mountain and the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay.
Villa Louise is ideal for honeymooners or two couples travelling together as it as two en suite bedrooms with double beds.
Cape Town is most popular with visitors during the long, hot, dry summer – which runs from about November to March – when the sun sets after 8pm for 15 hours of daylight. This is a great time to soak up the sun, hit the open-air markets and cafés, and laze on the beach. Yet winter, from about June to September, has its own charms: toasty wine tasting in the cellars of Constantia, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch; literary and art festivals; and cooler weather for hiking. Whale season runs between August and September, when pods of southern right whales can be spied as they return to shallow waters on their annual ocean circuit.
The streamlined kitchen has granite tops and modern cupboards, with important appliances like a juicer for early-morning smoothies and an oven and stove combination. It is open-plan and flows into the lounge area.
With dramatic black and silver wallpaper and bold accents, the main bedroom is a study in masculine tones. It has double bed and en suite bathroom.
The guest bedroom is an excellent visual counterpoint to the main one: done in delicate champagne tones, it is unashamedly feminine.
Both bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, and the villa includes a guest bathroom (toilet and basin only).
The open-plan living areas flow into the kitchen, making for a convivial shared area. It has a large flat-screen TV set before a comfortable L-shaped sofa and a dining table that seats four.
The expansive terrace includes an undercover dining area that leads onto decking punctuated by soft lawn and surrounded by hedges. The views look out over Cape Town Stadium and the Atlantic Ocean.
