About Lion's View
Recommended by Wallpaper City Guide as one of the best places to stay in Cape Town, Lion’s View has established itself as the ultimate Camps Bay retreat. Designed by leading South African architect, Greg Wright, this luxurious villa perfectly complements its magnificent setting overlooking the famous Camps Bay beach, Lion’s Head and the Twelve Apostles Mountains.
The property is conceptualized around clean, flowing lines, a palette of soothing colours, minimalist furnishings and open airy spaces. Its innovative, modern architecture and stylish interiors have received international recognition and it continues to feature in design magazines, fashion shoots and TV commercials.
Situated in a tranquil tree-lined street, Lion’s View is a five-minute stroll from Camps Bay beach, with its signature palm-fringed waterfront and array of trendy cafés, bars and restaurants. A 10-minute drive takes you into Cape Town’s vibrant city centre and its acclaimed V & A Waterfront. At Lion’s View you are within easy reach of it all.
Lion’s View is divided into two sections; the five bedroom Main House and the two-bedroom Penthouse Apartment. Guests can opt for either, or combine them to form an ultra-luxurious, seven-bedroom villa. Guests are ensured total comfort and luxury. A housekeeper is always on hand to tend to domestic needs and a private chef can be arranged on request.
As you would expect from a 5 Star property, the house has all the modern conveniences including an iPod docking station, Hi-Fi, telephone, DStv, DVD players and complementary Wi-Fi Internet. There is also underfloor heating and air-conditioning in selected areas.
The Main House on the ground floor comprises five double en-suite bedrooms, a spacious lounge, a dining room and a fully-equipped, open-plan kitchen. The entrance is via a footbridge that traverses the Japanese koi pond. Furniture and fixtures by top designers, such as Philippe Starck, line the house adding a fine touch of elegance.
The master bedroom, with its raised spa bath behind the bed and wall-to-wall view of the pool and beach beyond, comes with a telescope. Surrounded by the large patio and beautifully manicured garden is a seductive infinity-edged swimming pool that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and Lions Head.
Upstairs is the stylish Penthouse Apartment featuring its own separate entrance, two spacious double bedrooms, two luxurious bathrooms, a lounge and fully-equipped, open-plan kitchen. The unique design of the roof makes the most of the majestic mountain views. The balcony, with its heated plunge pool, is the ideal place to enjoy the sun, panoramic views and the soothing sound of the sea.
