With easy access to central Cape Town and many highlights and sites worth visiting in Cape Town and surrounds, Ellerman House and their two villas are beautiful properties in which to be based, with year-round sunsets, spectacular views with refined service and hospitality. One feels most privileged to stay here.
For the ultimate in privacy and indulgence in South Africa, the two three-bedroom private villas are incredible. The style of both villas is contemporary modern with clean lines and space that draws one into the expansive views. These are perfect for a family or a small group of friends and each has its own lounge, dining room, study and fully-equipped kitchen as well as an entertainment area with deck and pool – pure heaven!
Although the villas stand independently from Ellerman House, the service does not falter from the highest standard, with a private chef and hospitality team included when booking the villas to tend to your every need.
Apart from the two villas, the esteemed Ellerman House only has 13 rooms and is also in itself an art gallery with the finest collection of South African art.
Ellerman House and their two private villas are located on Kloof Road in Bantry Bay just 10 minutes drive from central Cape Town and around 45 minutes from the international airport. It is within walking distance of the famous Clifton Beach, 10 minutes from the centre of Cape Town and 35-45 minutes from the start of the winelands, a highlight and must for any visitors to the Cape. There is much to see and do in Cape Town and surrounds, sun-drenched beaches and the best restaurants in Africa, to scenic drives, golf courses, gardens, markets and of course the one highlight that dominates the whole of Cape Town – Table Mountain.
There are two villas that are modern and glamorous and with the slopes of Lions Head behind and panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean in front, the villas exude an alluring beach lifestyle. Each villa is privately staffed, and its privacy allows one to relax whilst also having the option to enjoy the spa and art of the house.
There is no ‘best time’ to visit. South Africa’s seasons find midwinter in June / July and midsummer occurring in December / January. The country is very much one that can be visited all year round, with appropriate clothing.
Smart casual clothing is requested at Ellerman, but you are on holiday and the villa is private just for you, so you can wear what you like! If you visit certain high end restaurants – bookings in advance are ALWAYS recommended, then gentlemen may be required to wear a light jacket. However, out and about in Cape Town – wear comfortable clothing, in layers especially during the winter months and good footwear. If hiking activities are included, then bring light weight hiking boots/ shoes with a good grip on the sole.
