Cape Town City Centre Villas

Home >Villas > Neighbourhoods > Cape Town City Centre

Lying in the lap of world-famous Table Mountain, the established neighbourhoods of Gardens, Tamboerskloof and Oranjezicht are home to some of the city's most sought-after addresses.

With their backs to the mountain and the City Bowl at their feet, our Cape Town city centre villas nestle amongst these tree-lined streets, their views stretching out towards the deep blue of Table Bay.

These neighbourhoods are known for their beautifully-restored Victorian homes and apartments, and many of our city centre villas capture this old-word charm in their wooden floors and high pressed ceilings, while others boast contemporary living spaces and large sunny decks. All are a great alternative for those who want to break free from hum-drum hotels.

Central Cape Town is easily walkable and well-worth exploring, taking all the normal safety and security precautions of any big city. St George’s Mall is a central artery that has been closed to traffic and links to historic Greenmarket Square (a vibrant collection of traditional crafts, art galleries and outdoor cafés) and the 17th-century Company’s Gardens. The gardens are flanked by Parliament, the seat of government, and St George’s Cathedral, known as a key player in Cape Town’s struggle for freedom.

From there, stroll to eclectic Long Street, which is packed with colourful Victorian buildings housing boutiques, record stores and lunch-time restaurants. By night, Long Street is considered Cape Town’s party capital and come alive with live music, DJs and midnight revels. From there, it is a short walk to Kloof Street, which is a treasure trove of design-conscious stores.

When you feel like a break there are plenty of coffee shops to choose from: join the regulars at Jason in Bree Street – try their sinfully delicious bacon croissant – or take a seat at Café Mozart surrounded by art galleries and antique dealers in sun-dappled Church Street. Dining out is a breeze too with a collection of top-notch restaurants a short hop from your villa: choose between Bombay Bicycle Club (off-beat atmosphere), Societi Bistro (local favourite) or Five Flies, 95 Keerom and Carne (fine dining).

From the city centre it’s a mere 5-minute drive to the cable car station and hiking trails up Table Mountain, or continue over Kloofnek and see the brilliant blue Atlantic Ocean opening up in front of you with palm-lined Camps Bay beach beckoning below.

Our team of experienced Villa Experts are here to tailor-make your dream vacation.

Cape Town loves its markets: sample dim sum, koftas and cupcakes at the City Bowl Market in Hope Street - open Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings - or stroll along St Georges Mall on a Thursday when the leafy walkway is filled with stalls selling delicious goods ranging from burritos and sushi to pâtés and preserves.
