21 Net­tle­ton

Views of the At­lantic Ocean, Ta­ble Moun­tain and the Twelve Apos­tles are com­ple­mented by lav­ish fur­nish­ings and beau­ti­ful grounds at this bou­tique ho­tel. Lo­cated on Cape Town’s most exclusive (and ex­pen­sive) street, Net­tle­ton Road, it of­fers just four suites, so pri­vacy is guar­an­teed.

La Res­i­dence

Op­u­lence meets rus­tic charm at this es­tate in the heart of Fran­schhoek in Cape Town’s winelands. Ex­pect high ceil­ings, chan­de­liers, bur­gundy vel­vet and bath­rooms rem­i­nis­cent of Ver­sailles’ Hall of Mir­rors. Re­quest a room on the ground floor so you can throw open the French doors of your suite and walk di­rectly into the vine­yard.

Tintswalo At­lantic

This ocean­front lodge in Ta­ble Moun­tain National Park pro­vides a com­plete re­treat from the ur­ban hub­bub. Each of the plush, beach­front suites is uniquely dec­o­rated, so be sure to look on­line first and re­quest a room that is to your taste. The staff treat you like fam­ily and the ser­vice is ex­cel­lent.

Eller­man House

The grand dame of Cape Town’s ho­tels, Eller­man House has been a haven for old money since 2004, when the Cape Ed­war­dian man­sion opened as a guest house. Its ex­ten­sive art col­lec­tion in­cludes works by Lionel Smith and Wil­liam Ken­tridge, and pri­vate tours can be arranged. Don’t miss its avant-garde wine cel­lar ei­ther.
