The 20 Best Villas to Rent in Cape Town (+ The Winelands) 2020

Designed by award-winning architects, this shore-hugging escape is reminiscent of a tropical seaside paradise (think St Barts, North Island in the Seychelles, and Soneva Fushi in the Maldives) with lashings of style and luxury. A few steps off your dreamy deck and you’re on the accolade-accruing Clifton 4th beach, where dips in the sea, lazy afternoon lounging, and morning runs on the sand call your name – the answer to every beach-lover’s dream. There’s even a surfboard and wetsuits…
The Setting Seaside
Lie of the land The sea-facing, three-storey villa offers three bedrooms, a fully equipped open-plan lounge, state-of-the-art kitchen and a dining area seating 10 (perfect for dinner parties), a bar, and downstairs media room filled with the best old-school vinyls for sunset spinning sessions (which doubles as a teenager’s sleeping pod with 2 double beds and an en-suite shower and kitchenette).
Outside, the large undercover deck boasts a large heated pool (with spa jets), sun loungers, hammocks and day mattresses, a braai area, outdoor heated shower, and a plush private garden. There’s also a private front lawn for sundowners and a braai, with uninterrupted views of the beach. You also have the private use of a lock-up garage (which is gold dust in season!)
Luxe cred There’s a full cleaning service from Monday to Sunday, and a full continental breakfast and butler service can be arranged on request.
Child friendly? Yes, however there are child-safety issues (such as steps and an exposed pool with a mechanical cover) so they need to be over a certain age.
Pet friendly? No
Cost From R14 500 per night (depending on season)
