QUIET, STYLISH, MOUNTAINSIDE VILLA NEAR CAPE TOWN WITH UNPARALLED OCEAN VIEWS

Scarborough House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms (ensuite), sleeps 6, pool, indigenous garden

Located in an exclusive conservation village on the Cape Peninsula, this unique villa offers a true escape for those wishing to leave the hurly-burly of the city behind. Sip cocktails in the pool and dream as it merges into sea beyond, watch whales, meander down to the local beach, or simply snooze to the sound of the waves breaking below.

More about the house location: Unobstructed 180 degree views up and down the magnificent coastline. The house faces west to capture the best of the Cape's wonderful sunsets over the sea. Watch WHALES close inshore from the comfort of home during the breeding season (Aug - Dec). Views of the sea and mountains can be enjoyed from all rooms in the house and from the elevated pool. By night, brilliant star gazing. The house is not part of a complex and no facilities are shared with any other holiday makers - it's all yours! Additional pictures and a location map are available by email on request.

More about the interior of the house: The interior has been finished by an interior designer in collaboration with the owner. The aim is a stylish yet relaxing interior. The house is tiled throughout. All three bedrooms are ensuite. Each bedroom/ bathroom combination is unique, with bathrooms finished individually with high quality Italian tiles and fittings. The main bedroom has its own balcony and a bathroom with bath and his and her shower heads and wonderful views. The house is serviced weekly (more frequently on request at reasonable rates), with all linen and towels provided. The kitchen is fully equipped. The house has metal roller blinds on all windows allowing control of sunlight as well as providing security should guests wish to sleep with doors open. The house is in a safe area but for added comfort is alarmed and connected direct to a local security patrol company.

More about nearby amenities: The house is about 50 minutes' drive from central Cape Town and its international Airport. (Arrangements can be made to meet guests at the airport and guide them to the house if desired). There are also a number of more attractive (slower) coastal and inland drives to get to central Cape Town and its popular Waterfront. The historic vineyards at Constantia and Steenberg are a short drive away. The house is located close to Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and, over a short mountain pass, to the historic naval town of Simon's Town with its boutiques, cafes and yacht basin and to Boulders, well known for its penguin colony and protected swimming. Fishhoek with its long, safe beach for kids and the eclectic fishing village of Kalk Bay are both a leisurely half hour's drive away. Scarborough, with its quaint restaurant and local shops, is the closest town and is a 5 minute drive away. There are supermarkets, cinemas and other shops, golf, etc within a 15 minute drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came here for our 10th wedding anniversary and this place was more than what we expected. Our anniversary became the most memorable time ever. Thank you so much to Guy and Nicola for providing us with such a wonderful place to stay. We just wish we could stay longer, as many other visitors thought. This home is well designed for any guests. Such a beautiful place. we hope we’ll be back in near future again.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

T Wolfensberger, Switzerland. 'Fantastic panorama, fantastic architecture. The perfect place...'
The Davies family, London SW1 UK. 'A great vacation in a great location. Nothing can beat swimming with penguins at Boulders beach, or sight of the stars on a clear night. Except perhaps looking out of the window when we wake and seeing whales in the bay. We are sorry to be leaving and hope to be back again some day.'
The Scattergoods, Marlborough, UK. 'Your Cape mountainside property, with its wonderful design, location, facilities and support arrangements, is our new best friend. Brilliant!'
The Dalle Nogares, Essex UK. 'This has been the perfect end to our honeymoon. The views/sunset are magical. All the info in the house and that sent by Nicola was very helpful when exploring the Cape and Winelands. Well done on a fantastic getaway – I wish it was ours!'
The Barkers, Bedforshire, UK. 'Our second visit to the house and everything as impressive as our first....'

Misty Cliffs is a unique conservation village on the west coast of the Cape Peninsula; same coast as Clifton and Llandudno and about as far south as the historic naval base of Simon's Town which is located on the peninsula's east (False Bay) coast. Misty Cliffs is a quiet, upmarket village with no commercial activities like shops and restaurants to spoil the tranquillity, yet these amenities can be found as close as 10 minutes away. There are also several golf courses within a 20 minute drive, including those in the historic Constantia winelands, as well as other sports and recreational facilities.

Notes:
There is comprehensive tourist information at the house and guests are met in person at the house by the Agent (owner's sister); shown the facilities and given general information on the area as well as greater Cape Town including sightseeing opportunities, golf and other sports facilities nearby, restaurants, shopping and location of private medical facilities. The Agent runs a hospitality business and is very willing to assist guests in planning activities in Cape Town and further afield with the benefit of her local knowledge or to arrange personalised tours. She can also arrange competitive car hire and airport transfers, meet guests at the airport, arrange restaurant and other bookings (often useful in the season when many venues are heavily booked). Guests are under no obligation to use her services. The house is located on a steep slope with potentially dangerous drops for young children and the elderly. Children under 12 are discouraged. Wheelchair access is not possible.
