Style & Décor

Sheer understated luxury defines this exclusive 5-star villa. Uniquely decorated and designed to maximise the incredible mountain and sea views, its living spaces are spacious and open plan, flowing out onto wooden decks that seem to float out to sea. Contemporary décor in subtle accents reflect the surrounding vistas while plasma touch-panels control the interior's temperature and lighting.


Situated on the slopes of Lion's Head overlooking the mercurial Atlantic Ocean, Bantry Bay is one of Cape Town’s most exclusive suburbs. Minutes away from the bustle of Sea Point and Cape Town's popular city beaches, this quiet residential suburb offers a private and intimate escape. Join the locals for a walk along Sea Point Promenade or head around the corner to Clifton and Camps Bay to visit some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. A short drive will take you to the V&A Waterfront for some retail therapy or to Table Mountain for unforgettable views.


This luxurious villa is ideal for families, groups of friends or honeymoon couples who want to experience the very best of Cape Town’s glamorous lifestyle.

Best time to visit

Head to the city from November to March for long, hot summer days and balmy sun-downer nights. Beaches are busy and restaurants are bustling in the December and January high season but March to April sees crowd-free beaches and sublime, wind-free weather. Do not discount winter though – rainy and cool with long dry and sunny periods, this is the best time to explore the surrounding Cape Winelands or head up the West Coast for spectacular scenery and seafood.

Special Notes

Private underground parking for six cars.



Polished timber and stainless steel stand out in the villa's ultra-modern kitchen, fully equipped with state-of-the-art amenities including two ovens, a fridge/freezer and gas stove. Attractive Caesarstone countertops and glass-fronted cabinets add a touch of glamour, and guests are treated to a fully-stocked fridge with an array of gourmet treats.

Master Bedroom

Breathtaking views and graceful furnishings in shades of aqua blue and cream enhance a sense of peace and tranquillity in the spacious master bedroom. Situated on the villa's upper level, the room features large glass sliding doors that open onto a timber deck with spectacular views. A king-sized bed and plush cream carpeting add elegant appeal.

Guest Bedrooms

The second guest bedroom offers an en suite bathroom, a king-sized bed, plush carpets and elegant décor in subtle shades of lavender and grey. Sliding doors open onto a private deck with stunning sea views. Rich gold and maroon colours adorn the third guest bedroom, complete with two twin beds and magnificent views of the Twelve Apostles mountains.


Elegant bathrooms with large walk-in showers, bath tubs and bidets accompany each room. Travertine floor tiles, marble vanities and luxury bath and body products echo sheer opulence. The master bathroom opens onto a timber deck with incredible ocean views while the second suite's bathroom is uniquely decorated in Balinese accents. Each level has a separate guest bathroom.

Living & Dining Area

The villa's living spaces are defined by their breathtaking views, invited in at every turn. Spacious indoor and outdoor living spaces connect seamlessly via expansive glass sliding doors to create beautiful flow while contemporary furniture in natural, earthy tones offers luxurious comfort.

Dine in style under a Swarovski crystal chandelier, floating above an 8-seater glass dining table, before retiring to the state-of-the-art entertainment room, complete with a plasma-screen television and selection of DVDs and CDs. An elegantly furnished library, which used to be Lady Ellerman’s private library, is stocked with a fine collection of books and the latest magazines and makes a great place to curl up and catch up on some holiday reading.

Outside Area

Spacious living areas open onto wrap-around wooden decks that embrace awe-inspiring views. Outdoor sofas and armchairs offer plenty of places to relax with a book, and a 6-seater dining table promises alfresco dining by starlight. A gin-clear plunge pool on the ground level beckons you in on hot summer days while a larger infinity pool on the lower level inspires glamorous sundowner evenings with friends.
