An African Villa is a charming and homely trio of restored Victorian houses in Tamboerskloof – a trendy suburb on the foothills Table Mountain of Cape Town halfway between the city centre and the Cableway. A massive kitchen forms the social centre of this intimate guesthouse and it opens out onto a private courtyard with plunge pool, cushioned loungers, and a dining terrace for Cape Town's beautiful summers. Winter is an opportunity seized upon with alacrity: a cosy lounge has a fireplace and a well-stocked supply of wine – or you can bring your own favourite bottle from the day's wine tour.
African Villa has 12 rooms each tastefully decorated and appointed. All rooms are en suite with air conditioning and heating; percale linen; satellite TV; electronic wall safes; direct-dial telephones; and hair dryers. Breakfast is served in the courtyard or indoors depending on the weather.
