Getaway (South Africa) - - Check In -


If you’re look­ing for a one- or two-bed­room apart­ment with con­tem­po­rary fin­ishes, ho­tel-like fa­cil­i­ties (pool, spa, gym) and strictly con­trolled ac­cess, book a unit in Ma­jes­tic Vil­lage. A sur­pris­ingly large and ar­chi­tec­turally tex­tured se­cu­rity com­plex, the Vil­lage em­braces both of Kalk Bay’s orig­i­nal 1930s ho­tels, re­pur­posed into the 18-apart­ment New Kings and 14-apart­ment Ma­jes­tic, as well as an organic mix of pur­pose-built apart­ment blocks, each ar­chi­tec­turally unique in style and name (Quays, Mews, Mid­de­dorp, Mill­house, Town­houses etc). The mix of styles and low-slung de­sign with pretty land­scap­ing works well; wan­der­ing along the neat lanes of this faux vil­lage (rem­i­nis­cent of Joburg’s West­cliff ho­tel), one can’t help but covet an apart­ment here; luck­ily you can rent one and just pre­tend you do. ROOM TIP Melissa Jack­son (pro­pri­etor of Away From Home) man­ages by far the largest port­fo­lio of apart­ments in Ma­jes­tic Vil­lage. I par­tic­u­larly like New Kings 6, Quays 6 (aka Har­bour View) and Mews 1. Grant Holden has a great two-bed­room apart­ment sim­ply called The Ma­jes­tic. COST Most are from R1 100 or R1 250 (sleep two to four). The Ma­jes­tic is from R2 800. Min­i­mum-stay rules ap­ply. CON­TACT The Ma­jes­tic 076-949-2480;
