Elegant European style meets the incredible South African scenery at Cloud House. The classic lines and comfortable modern interiors of this Cape Town vacation rental are a beautiful contrast to the rugged lines of the Twelve Apostles. The villa’s quiet courtyard is a private place to entertain and relax, but a short walk brings guests to the surf and sand of Camps Bay Beach. Listen to the waves in the distance and revel in the sunshine in the tucked-away courtyard, which has a lap pool, a lawn large enough for games, a barbecue, and lounging and dining areas. There’s a gym where guests can keep up on their fitness routines while on holiday, an office in case you need to catch up on work and a home theatre where you can enjoy the company of friends and family. The interiors of Cloud House take inspiration from its name, rendered in shades of white and cream that lend a fresh appeal. Traditional touches such as French doors and columned porches are paired with contemporary pieces such as wicker and Lucite side tables and a sleek fireplace for an eclectic, modern look. The living and dining rooms are angled around the outdoor sitting area, and flow seamlessly into the fully equipped kitchen. The villa has three bedrooms with king beds and two with queen beds; all five have en-suite bathrooms. Neutral tones, clean-lined furnishings and large mullioned windows create an atmosphere of quiet luxury in the suites. For larger parties, a sofa bed provides extra accommodations. With restaurants, shops and bars less than a 15-minute walk away, Cloud House makes it easy to explore this lively oceanfront suburb. You can also stroll to Camps Bay Beach, a stretch of white sand that’s popular with everyone from local families and keen surfers to visiting honeymooners, or drive to Koeël Bay Market, where you’ll find a tempting array of hand-crafted items that make great souvenirs. Of course, a trip to Cape Town wouldn’t be complete without taking in the views from Table Mountain, Lion’s Head or the Twelve Apostles—all less than a 10-minute drive from Cloud House.

Float in the indoor or outdoor pool, grill lunch, and play tennis just over a mile away. Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.
