Overlooking the deep-blue waters of Camps Bay from its setting on the Twelve Apostles mountain range, this elegant abode is the perfect place for friends and families to enjoy Cape Town’s laid-back lifestyle.
Serviced six days a week and complete with a concierge service, the villa has three en suite bedrooms that promise welcoming sanctuaries with stunning views. Beautifully decorated, spacious rooms flow effortlessly onto a wide tiled patio while rugged mountains form the backdrop to a manicured indigenous garden and sparkling private pool.
It is only a short walk down to Camps Bay itself: amble down to the Blue Flag beach and its adjoining row of buzzing bars and cool cafés for a day of fun in the sun or take a short drive to Cape Town's city centre and V&A Waterfront for museums, shopping, free concerts, ocean cruises and much more.

“My all-time favourite 3-bedroom villa in Camps Bay - I love the interiors, the pool and the Zen garden!””Christine Mischker, Africa Villas Expert
Gryphon House’s L-shaped design is both aesthetically pleasing and functional, acting as a buffer to channel wind away from the outdoor living and entertaining areas. Large glass doors open to create an easy flow from indoor to outdoor spaces and a flight of stairs carries you down to the sparkling pool and Zen-like landscaped garden.
The glossy, polished interior is dressed predominantly in an all-white palette with accents of dark mahogany and pale sand. Stylish, contemporary furnishings and bold African artworks echo the natural surrounding landscapes.
With its laid-back village feel, palm-lined beachfront and Mediterranean-style chic, it is no wonder that Camps Bay is one of the world’s premier holiday destinations.
Bustling restaurants, beach bars and cafés line this glamorous beachfront strip, offering a wide range of places to eat and drink. The beach itself is one of South Africa’s most beautiful Blue Flag beaches while a short drive leads to the Table Mountain Cableway as well as the popular V&A Waterfront, where retail therapy and an unforgettable trip to Robben Island await.
Gryphon House is ideal for families and groups of friends looking for sophisticated style and comfort in Camps Bay with plenty of privacy and at-your-own-pace convenience.
Cape Town comes alive during the November to March summer which sees long, hot summer days with especially busy beaches and bustling restaurants over the December to January peak season. February and March see hot weather with fewer visitors while the cooler, wind-free days of April and May offer some of the best weather of the year.
June to October brings rainy, cooler days, perfect for exploring the city’s museums and quirky shops. Winter may not be beach weather but the sunny spells in between rainy ones are long, warm and dry.
Fully equipped and perfect for entertaining, the modern, open-plan kitchen has plenty of space and features a central breakfast bar bridging the elegantly furnished dining area. A small herb garden offers the freshest home-grown ingredients.
Breathtaking views and sumptuous finishes make the master bedroom a sophisticated and sensual sanctuary. Large, glass sliding doors open onto a private verandah overlooking the garden and ocean's horizon while an elevated en suite bathroom, plush carpeting and under-floor heating are some of the luxurious comforts.
Crisp, white linen adorns queen-sized beds in the two spacious en suite guest rooms, featuring modern amenities and stunning garden and sea views. Both rooms have under-floor heating for extra comfort in winter.
The master en suite bathroom is elevated for comfort and privacy and offers a beautiful freestanding stone bath, walk-in shower and double vanity. Two en suite bathrooms with showers, baths and heated towel rails accompany each of the other bedrooms, and the villa also has a small guest toilet and shower.
Spacious, open-plan living areas maximise magnificent views with large glass sliding doors connecting indoor and outdoor spaces. A cosy fireplace and rich, dark accents bring warmth to the main living room while a smaller lounge on the upper level offers picturesque ocean views. An 8-seater dining table promises easy entertaining, with African art and sculptures creating indigenous appeal.
A wide patio overlooking the lavender-scented garden and sparkling pool offers a perfect entertaining area. Relax with your favourite book on a sun lounger by the pool and soak up the ocean views.
