Is there a better tonic for mind and body than sand beneath your toes, sun on your back and lungfuls of super-fresh sea air? Probably not. Unless you want to add a stream of perfectly-chilled drinks, frequent dips in your own private pool, and sleeping to the sound of gently rolling waves to the mix. In which case, may we direct you to our collection of immaculately equipped Cape Town beach villas. Here’s our top half-dozen to tempt you.
This tropically-styled gem is literally only five steps from Cape Town’s Clifton 4th Beach – voted one of the ‘Top 10 Beaches in The World’ by Forbes Magazine. Split over three levels, it offers a hammock-strewn pool deck with amazing sea views, and slick open-plan entertaining areas that flow seamlessly from inside to out.
One of the three bedrooms in this brilliantly designed family-friendly home features four custom-made inlaid bunk beds. Invoking a luxury ocean liner cabin feel, these beautifully crafted ‘sleeping pods’ will probably mean the kids will want to go to bed earlier than normal, leaving the adults to enjoy an undisturbed sundowner on the deck.
At a higher elevation, overlooking the same glorious stretch of sand, this four bedroomed villa even offers a stunning seascape from the free-standing rolltop bath in the master bedroom – giving bathers the opportunity to watch migrating whales while lathering up.
The exotic dark wood interiors of this chic modern villa provide a cooling cocoon for those super-hot summer days, while still affording guests awesome ocean views from virtually every room, via a series of perfectly positioned windows and doorways.
Just along the way, overlooking vibey Clifton 3rd beach, the hill-side location of this dual-aspect bungalow provides guests with panoramic vistas of both the Atlantic and the spectacular mountains that cascade down from the national park to the south.
Finally, for those guests wanting a more homely feel, this cosy three-bedder has a L-shaped pool wrapped one corner of the property, with verdant trees and vegetation on its borders providing shaded areas for those needing a respite from the African sun.
