Boasting six sublime bedroom suites and immense living spaces centred around a huge garden, Cape Nelius is a majestic villa for twelve in the exclusive, picturesque neighbourhood of Constantia.

Your immense interiors are delightfully open-plan, with a vibrant style throughout! The main floor offers a huge kitchen to one side with dazzling white fittings and a stylish breakfast bar. To the other side is a casual dining area, while there’s a lovely large lounge to the far side of the expansive room. Meanwhile, complete with a barbeque, a bar and kitchen, a plush TV area and a wood-burning fireplace, your pool room is the perfect hang out spot for the late evenings – with space for everyone to gather in complete comfort.

On the top floor, you’ll find four of these luxurious bedrooms. The first is your immense master bedroom, with a stunning ensuite bathroom and tons of natural light. In addition, here there is a double room and two smaller children’s bedrooms. The remaining two bedrooms are on the ground floor and include two more double beds, both boasting garden access! All of the rooms embody a decadent elegance with minimalist designs and rich colours. There are six accompanying bathrooms all of which are equally vibrant, with a range of freestanding bathtubs and walk-in showers, including a double vanity unit in one!

Your garden is enormous, with soft, cushioning grass expanding into the distance in every direction connecting you to the natural world which envelops you in this world-famous region of Cape Town. The enchanting heart of the garden is undoubtedly your wonderful pool, with loungers surrounding it for sunbathing and relaxing in between refreshing dips. Around the pool, across the many terraces, are casual seating areas, alfresco dining and tons of grassy areas for strolling and enjoying the fresh air!

Tucked in the famous wine valley of Constantia, Cape Nelius is within minutes of some of the oldest vineyards in the southern hemisphere, and yet still just a 20-minute drive away from Cape Town city centre, making this is a perfect location for all!

If you’re a fan of wine you already know South Africa is unmissable – what you might not know is that the Constantia Valley is the oldest winemaking region in the southern hemisphere, with some estates dating back to 1685! In this exquisite valley, you will find not only vineyards but also countless excellent restaurants to enjoy along the way! As well as wine, Cape Town and its surrounding region are major fruit producers, and you can enjoy some of the freshest, most delicious fruits around here. As you’d expect, there is also tons of seafood, including yellowtail, cape salmon and kingklip, which are absolutely delicious.

Aside from food, another absolute highlight of the region is, of course, Table Mountain. You can either take the cable car up to the top or enjoy a 2-3 hour steep hike through stunning scenery. When you reach the top there are 2km of paths to be wandered, all giving you panoramic views of the city and Table Bay. There’s even a restaurant up here for dining with a view! The Table Mountain National Park itself comprises several areas of interest along the peninsula, including Cape Hope and Cape Point, and is bursting with fascinating wildlife including ostriches, antelopes and baboons, and of course breath-taking scenery!

With both the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean to choose from, you’ll find an inspiring selection of water-sports available all along the coastline! Surfing and kite surfing are major sports in the area, thanks to the varied coastline made up of protected coves to huge open beaches with enormous waves, promising something for all levels!

An unforgettable day out is a trip to Robben Island, the Maximum Security Prison where political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, were held during the apartheid. The tour begins at the V&A Waterfront and includes not only a tour of the prison itself but also meeting a former political prisoner and a tour of the 575-hectare Island which often includes sightings of penguins!

Cape Town is a city of unparalleled natural beauty, cultural diversity, and historical significance. Known for its iconic landmarks, vibrant neighbourhoods, and a rich blend of cultures, it’s a destination that captures the imagination of visitors from around the world.

The city is situated on the Cape Peninsula, flanked by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Indian Ocean to the south. The scenic drive along Chapman's Peak, with its dramatic cliffs and coastal vistas, is a taster of the breathtaking scenery that characterises the region.
The city is framed by the iconic Table Mountain. The mountain not only provides a stunning natural backdrop to the urban landscape, but also offers hiking trails and a cable car ride, allowing visitors to take in panoramic views from the top.

The city’s history is deeply intertwined with the broader narrative of South Africa's struggle against apartheid. Robben Island, located just off the coast, served as a prison for political activists, including Nelson Mandela. Today, the island is a museum and a symbol of South Africa's journey to democracy. Another noteworthy museum is the District Six Museum, which tells the story of a neighbourhood forcibly cleared during apartheid. It serves as a powerful reminder of the resilience of the city’s people in the face of adversity.

Cape Town is a city that constantly evolves and embraces innovation. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is a vibrant hub of shopping, dining, and entertainment. The Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA), housed in a repurposed grain silo, stands as a testament to the city's commitment to contemporary artistic expression, showcasing the work of African artists and contributing to the global dialogue on modern art.

The diverse population and rich history of Cape Town is reflected in its diverse culinary scene. From the vibrant flavours of Cape Malay cuisine to the fresh seafood harvested from the surrounding oceans, the city offers a culinary journey that tantalises the taste buds. The Cape Winelands, just a short drive from the city, boast world-renowned vineyards and wine estates, inviting visitors to taste the fruits of the region's fertile soils while taking in views of rolling hills and picturesque landscapes.

From the majestic Table Mountain to the vibrant neighbourhoods steeped in history, from the cultural richness of its people to the modern dynamism of its entrepreneurial spirit, Cape Town is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the beauty that emerges from embracing diversity. Whether you are a nature enthusiast, a history buff, a culinary connoisseur, or someone seeking the pulse of a vibrant city, Cape Town invites you to explore its landscapes and delve into its stories.
