Cape View Clifton
Cape Town's latest city beach house
Cape View Clifton
A designer den built into the cliffs above Cape Town's best white beaches with uninterrupted views of the Twelve Apostles mountains and the Atlantic Ocean—Cape View Clifton—is a luxury guest house that is hard to beat. A short stroll from the trendy Clifton 4th beach and a stone's throw from the cocktail bars of Camps Bay, Cape View Clifton is a beach retreat with access to all the city fun you could dream of. The owners have created the perfect base to explore Cape Town's magic with exceptional service and a homely feel.
At the lodge
Cape View Clifton's crown jewel—the inviting outdoor pool—is carved into a wooden deck with panoramic views across one of the most impressive stretches of coastline in Africa. Breakfasts are served on the terrace with your very own sea view. There are no restaurants, so head for the Camps Bay strip, trendy Kloof Street or the up and coming Bree Street for your foodie fix. Laze by the pool and when you're thirsty, pour yourself a drink at the honesty bar.
All four deluxe suites are individually designed and, perhaps more importantly, all boast their own sea view and balcony. There is also one junior suite and two other suites with two and three bedrooms respectively, ideal for families or small groups. Cape View Clifton comes with all the bells and whistles including full concierge service, wifi, TV, DVD player, iPod dock, air-conditioning, minibar, free bottled water, tea and coffee making facilities, a hair dryer and beach bags for trips to the beach.
Pack a towel and lots of sun cream and head down to Clifton 2nd beach or a short drive to Llandudno which is more secluded and our favourite beach, although more exposed when the wind gets up. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to cafes and restaurants, so get in touch and we will send you our top tips. If you're feeling fit then take on one of the Table Mountain hikes or the more leisurely little sister, Lion's Head. Otherwise take a drive down the peninsula to Kalk Bay, wave at the penguins at Boulders and be sure to take a pit stop at the Food Barn on your way home for lunch.
