Detailed Description of this trip:

The African Villa is a guesthouse with a difference. It is comprised of three historic terrace houses that are linked together, creating an impressive 12 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. The rooms are spacious, the ceilings high and the original walls reassuringly thick and solid. Dating back to the late 1800’s, the new building has been refurbished and decorated in a sophisticated contemporary African style. The air of calmness, which is immediately noticeable in the house, is achieved by skilful use of play of light, sensitive use of colour, subtle texture, and pattern play uniformly applied throughout the house. 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 marvelous courtyard beside the pool. Friendly housekeeping staff, Tandi, Tselane, Anne and Portia are on duty to prepare a hearty, cooked breakfast (included in the rate) for you. Facilities at the Villa include: a library where free internet access is available and a plunge pool surrounded by cushioned loungers in summer. 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 MNet); electronic wall safes; telephone with private line; hair dryers; beds are dressed in luxurious white cotton percale linen. All guest rooms have air-conditioners.
