Villa Lavaya

Contemporary chic meets beachcomber boutique in this sophisticated and stylish ocean-facing villa.

Tastefully renovated for absolute comfort and set in prime position in Camps Bay with easy access to the city’s top attractions, deluxe 5-bedroom Lavaya is ideal for a Cape Town family getaway.

Spacious, welcoming living spaces and breathtaking views are elements that run throughout Lavaya, while its beautifully-kept garden, terraces and sparkling pool will encourage outdoor chilling out. A resident house keeper ensures everything is taken care of while the amenities range from an in-house sound system, Wi-Fi and fully-equipped kitchen to a children's playroom and pool table.

It is only a short walk to Camps Bay beach and its row of buzzing bars and restaurants while the V&A Waterfront is only a 15-minute drive away. Lavaya was made to unwind: enjoy a barbeque on the upper terrace or simply relax on a comfortable lounger and soak up the amazing view.

Style & Decor

Designed and built in the 1960s, the villa has been tastefully transformed into a contemporary holiday retreat. Open-plan living spaces connect with the outdoors via large sliding doors and exposed wooden ceiling trusses expand interior spaces and enhance a light and airy beach house feel.

Rich parquet flooring and plush furnishings in neutral and earthy tones add to the chic atmosphere of the villa, featuring views of the mountains and sea from every window. The interior living spaces flow onto a wrap-around terrace and entertainment area complete with deep-set sofas and a built-in barbeque that overlooks a well-maintained garden and heated pool.

Neighbourhood

Situated at the very heart of Camps Bay, Lavaya is within easy walking distance of one of Cape Town’s most beautiful Blue-Flag beaches. One of South Africa’s premier summer destinations, Camps Bay is best known for its Mediterranean-style, palm-lined beachfront known as ‘the strip’ - home to the hottest restaurants, coolest cafés and most glamorous nightclubs in Cape Town. Head to Café Caprice for sublime cocktails or to St Yves for a late-night party.

Should you wish to explore the Mother City further, the villa is a short drive away from Cape Town’s city centre and the got-it-all V&A Waterfront.

Suitability

With five bedrooms and a comfortable open-plan design, the fully-serviced Villa Lavaya is an ideal family retreat. Two of the bedrooms have shared family bathrooms and, barring the master bedroom, the villa's beds can be used as double or twins, or even locked together end-to-end to create a child-friendly space. The large garden and heated pool with diving board are a perfect addition and the pool has a detachable, child-proof fence for peace of mind.

Best time to visit

From November to March, Cape Town basks under long, hot summer days and balmy nights, making Camps Bay the best place to be. While peak-season December and January are busy, the villa is located close enough to the action yet far enough from the crowds to ensure a peaceful night's sleep. February sees Cape Town’s hottest weather with cloudless days, while March and April bring cooler, hazy days and almost empty beaches.

The winter rains arrive in May and continue into the spring months of September and October. Regular cold fronts deliver wet weather but the periods in between see gloriously clear days that are made to be outside.

Special Notes

The villa is serviced daily by a live-in housekeeper who will welcome you on arrival and look after the house during your stay. There is a full concierge service and fresh bed linen and towels are provided daily.
