About An African Villa

An African Villa is a boutique hotel with a difference: three historic terrace houses linked together creating an impressive twelve bedroom city villa with exceptionally generous proportions, ideal for visitors who want a gently pampered environment near to the main attractions of the ‘Mother City’.

The Villa is situated half way between the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and Table Mountain Cableway in a quiet residential quarter with a lovely ‘village’ feel within a short stroll of the centre of Cape Town and a large number of its best restaurants. These elegant double-story Victorian terraced houses have the hallmark architectural characteristics of an era when space was no obstacle.

CAPE TOWN ACCOMMODATION

Do not be surprised to find yourself surrounded by glowing, wall hung, hurricane lanterns on a balmy African summers eve. All rooms are equipped with en suite bathrooms (some with shower and bath and twin basins); heating in winter; television (with DSTV); electronic wall safes; telephone; hair dryer; beds are dressed in luxurious white cotton percale linen; air-conditioner.

Guests are given an orientation to the secrets of our city after which we offer you the freedom of this spacious Victorian townhouse just as you yourself would to visitors in your own home. A thoughtful and well-planned written guide to life in the city, its tourist attractions, restaurants and other places of interest on the Peninsula, will help you to settle in. Should you need more advice or help, staff are at hand to offer assistance.

Services and Facilities

At the heart of the house, as you may expect, lies an enormous and welcoming kitchen. Breakfasts are served either in a spacious dining room or, weather permitting al fresco, in our marvellous courtyard beside the pool. Friendly housekeeping staff are on duty to prepare a hearty, cooked breakfast (included in the rate). Facilities at the Villa include: a library where free internet access is available, a plunge pool surrounded by cushioned loungers in summer.

In the evenings there are two comfortable lounges in which to relax perhaps with a complimentary glass of sherry, coffee or ‘rooibos’ tea (both freely available) or another beverage provided for you from our honesty bar. You are welcome to bring your own drinks and keep them in a guest fridge. There is also a microwave and small kitchen area for guest use.

Stayed here in January, on pulling up we thought that the place was going to be tiny however inside the accomodation is superb. Rooms were lovely, Pool was small however good to cool off and the breakfast are brillant. This place customer service was amazing, the manager was extremely helpful and could'nt do enough for you. It really was a fantastic stay and was extremely reasonable. I would recommend this as a base for anyone.

Gem of a Place: Wonderful boutique hotel in Cape Town. Location is fantastic. Just outside of the downtown area in a trendy and safe neighborhood. Within a 2 block walk to shops and a good assortment of restaurants. No need to take taxis in the evening.
