Gryphon House

Sleek and sophisticated, Gryphon House sets a new standard in luxurious, barefoot holiday living.

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.

Style & Décor

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.

Neighbourhood

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.

Suitability

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.

Best time to visit

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.

Kitchen

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.
