An African Villa

Cape Town, South Africa

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

This property is popular and small so finding space can be challenging. But this comes from being solid all around: great location, clean rooms, relaxed style. What's not to love about an honesty fridge?

An African Villa comprises of three historic terrace houses linked together creating a beautiful twelve bedroom boutique hotel ideal for visitors who want to see the main attractions of Cape Town. It is situated half way between the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and Table Mountain Cableway in a quiet residential quarter with a lovely 'village' feel, just a short stroll of the centre of town and a large number of its best restaurants. 

The villa has a intimate feel with sophisticated African-infused decor. Comfy beds with luxurious white cotton percale linen await guests. All rooms are en suite bathrooms, with heating in winter, air conditioning in the summer and an array of modern conveniences. An enormous and welcoming kitchen lies at the heart of the hotel. It serves freshly prepared hot breakfast and al fresco dining of delicious local cuisine. Guests are encouraged to help themselves to snacks and beverages from an 'honesty bar' in the kitchen. Makes them feel like part of the family!

In each room is a thoughtful and well-planned written guide to life in the city, its tourist attractions, restaurants and other places of interest on the Peninsula to help visitors to settle in.
