With decadent suites overlooking Cape Town’s sparkling Atlantic coastline, 21 Nettleton is an exclusive and luxurious hotel hideaway perched on the slopes of Lion’s Head peak. From its multiple storeys and generous balconies, you can enjoy panoramic views of the ocean, the Twelve Apostles mountain range, and the affluent Clifton neighbourhood – with its four beautiful beached - below. The hotel boasts the area’s largest private gardens and its manicured lawns invite you outside to soak up the warm African sun, or take a dip in the swimming pool.

While elegant grounds and beautiful views promise a tranquil stay, the opulent Italian-inspired interiors with high ceilings, a grand triple-volume staircase, and antique collectibles offer a romantic and captivating atmosphere. The crème de la crème for dreamy getaways and honeymoons is the Presidential Suite: set on the top floor, the spacious penthouse includes two large terraces with spectacular views, lavish living areas, two en suite bathrooms and a steam room.


  • Tranquil garden setting in Clifton
  • Mountain and ocean views
  • Exclusive accommodation and discreet service
  • Opulent décor and private art collection
  • Easy travelling distance to top attractions

Situated on the mountainside in the Cape Town suburb of Clifton, is the elegant mansion, 21 Nettleton. A mixture of Italian opulence and African colonialism. The expansive accommodation offers both breath taking mountain and sea views while one is surrounded by private and tranquil gardens.

Steinway Suite

This massive suite boasts magnificent views of the Twelve Apostles mountain range and the Atlantic Ocean, but its showpieces are a Steinway grand piano and private library.

Marvel at the infinite vistas of the Atlantic Ocean from the large private terrace. The bathroom is centred around a large bathtub and features a cosy fireplace.


On the picture-perfect green lawns, comfortable sun loungers and seating areas are strategically positioned in secluded spots to offer privacy and maximise the panoramic views. A uniquely shaped pool cuts through dense foliage and rock for a natural swimming experience on the slopes of the mountainside. Inside, sumptuous furnishings adorn the reception hall, dining room and lounge areas with antiques and art from Europe, China, India and South Africa. For the musically inclined, there are two grand pianos – one Bösendorfer and one Steinway & Sons.


Marvel at the sunset over drinks and canapés in the evening, and start the day with breakfast on the terrace with views of Cape Town’s magnificent mountain peaks. Eating out is a breeze with fine-dining venues, seafood restaurants and trendy nightspots located just a short drive away in Camps Bay.
