Large and elegant 5 to 6 bedroom villa in Upper Constantia
This villa can sleep comfortably a party of 10 ( in the main villa = 5 bedrooms) and if need be, it can accommodate up to 12 guests ( a 6th bedroom is available, at an added charge) . Only 15 minutes drive to Cape Town center, yet a world away from congestion and traffic. This villa is situated on the slopes of the mountain, surrounded with lush greenery and with magnificent views all around. This villa is extremely private and serene with a manicured garden and a large shared solar heated pool ( measures 12 meters by 5 meters) that is lit at night with different colors; there are chairs, sun beds and umbrellas around the pool, an outdoor wood burning fireplace, a Bose surround system, an outdoor Jacuzzi with views, tables, dining chairs for an evening meal with gas outdoor heaters for cooler weather. An outdoor plus an indoor bar are all there to entertain you. All the needs of the most demanding guest are met here.
Security begins with very tall perimeter walls all around and an equally tall gate that operates with a remote control. Further in a 21 year old Grey Africa parrot ( “Jacko”) stands guard at the main entrance to the house and greets the guests and sounds an alarm, if anything is out of the ordinary. In the house there is an intercom video system that allows you to see who may be at the gate. The area is patrolled 24/7 by a private security company. There is a full time maid on premises at all times.
The house was recently renovated to very high standards; all main rooms are on one level, no stairs need to be climbed on your vacation. Four of the bedrooms have their own DSTV ( satellite reception), so there is no need to compromise on everyone seeing the same channel. The kitchen has granite countertops, new appliances, gas stove, separate washing and laundry facilities, all in the grand style that you would expect to find in a country mansion.
Note: that the pool is shared and that there are other guests sharing the grounds, the pool and other common facilities – This accommodation is in the style of a guest house and is not recommended for those who require complete privacy
Internet : Wireless broadband internet is available throughout the villa, at no cost
