Villa in Cape Town
Blinkwater Villa
Settle into a laid-back routine of beach time, braai and exploring Cape Town at Blinkwater Villa with a 5-star grading from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. Though it’s set on a leafy, residential cul-de-sac, this contemporary vacation rental is only a few minutes’ walk from Camps Bay and its beach, and a few minutes’ drive from highlights like Table Mountain and the city center. The architect-designed interiors and four suite-style bedrooms can be shared by up to eight guests. Unwind in the shadow of Lion’s Head on private terraces with loungers and a pool, and alfresco dining for ten. Watch the stars come out over the mountains from the outdoor living areas or finish the evening inside around the TV and sound system, sharing photos of your day via Wi-Fi. Sliding glass doors link the open-concept great room of Blinkwater Villa to the terraces for stunning views of the bay and hills. Sleek contemporary furnishings give the living and dining areas a feel of modern luxury, and, in the fully equipped kitchen, you’ll find stylishly minimal cabinets along with a practical breakfast bar and state-of-the-art appliances. The villa’s four bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, are well suited to groups of friends or extended family on holiday together. There are three with king beds and one with a queen bed; all open to terraces or a courtyards that have been thoughtfully landscaped with indigenous plants. Nestled between Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, Camps Bay is one of Cape Town’s trendiest areas—and Blinkwater Villa is in the heart of it. It’s only a 4-minute walk to the beach, which is popular with locals and visitors alike, and 10 minutes to the downtown area, where you can browse unique shops, grab a coffee at a hip new spot or book a honeymoon-worthy dinner at an oceanfront restaurant. With Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, the Twelve Apostles and central Cape Town all less than 15 minutes away by car, you’ll have no trouble exploring this vibrant city. Copyright © Luxury Retreats.

All about Cape Town

Luxury Retreats, and expert in South African vacations

Encircled by craggy mountains and looking straight out across the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Town is a city like no other. With Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope both in close proximity, nature is never far away, but within the city itself, you’ll find plenty of urban charm, such as a world-class restaurant scene, fashionable shops, and modern art galleries, including the newly opened Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. Pristine beaches like Camps Bay, Llandudno Beach, and the four Clifton beaches attract sun-worshippers and surfers alike, but it’s not all about the coast. If you head inland you’ll soon reach South Africa’s wine country, where renowned vineyards offer tours and, of course, tastings.

Cape Town is easily accessible thanks to its large international airport, which sees arrivals from many of the world’s major cities. Cape Town’s beaches are at their busiest between December and February, but it remains warm and sunny until April. For those who are less concerned about sunbathing then the crisp, cooler days of May and June are perfect for exploring. If whale-watching is a priority, be sure to visit between July and September.

Explore Kirstenbosch gardens

One of the world’s most important – and beautiful – botanical gardens, Kirstenbosch was created in 1913 to preserve and display South Africa’s extraordinarily diverse flora. A UNESCO World Heritage site with an incomparable setting at the foot of Table Mountain and in the heart of the Cape Floristic Region, you can easily spend a day wandering its 1,300 acres. Showcasing approximately 9,000 of South Africa’s 22,000 plant species. Kirstenbosch offers an elevated fragrance garden, a sculpture park, and the Tree Canopy Walkway, a snaking steel and timber bridge that rises above the treetops and provides excellent views. If you’re visiting between November and March, be sure to attend one of the outdoor concerts that are held here on Sundays – they have become something of a Cape Town institution.

Climb Table Mountain

The distinctive Table Mountain – so called because of its flat top – lies just outside Cape Town, providing the city with a prominent and dramatic landmark. Although you can admire the 600-million-year old mountain from various viewpoints around Cape Town, its well worth making the trip to the top, which can be reached either by cableway or by hiking for 2-4 hours. The views of the city and the ocean from the summit at 3,000 feet are breathtaking, as is the surrounding nature. The area surrounding Table Mountain is home to numerous plant species that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
