Expert Review

To create this fabulous, chic and affordable boutique villa, three historic townhouses have been linked together and meticulously refurbished. The location can't be beat - a short walk from the center of Cape Town, steps from happening Kloof Street. The décor is self-dubbed by the owners as "African Zen," exuding contemporary style and intimate ambience. Four owners, several staff members, and three dogs ensure friendly service that makes guests feel as if they're visiting old friends. The high-ceilinged rooms come with the usual roster of amenities such as air-conditioning, safes, and tea & coffee tray. The priciest units are graced with private balconies, some showcasing Table Mountain vistas. Complimentary perks include free Wi-Fi throughout; two computer terminals; cake, port and sherry in the evenings; and a home-cooked breakfast served either in the dining room or alfresco. The courtyard, lantern-lit at night, features a plunge pool with lounge chairs.
