A modern Atlantic facing villa set between the sea and the mountain in Bantry Bay overlooks Lions Head, Sea Point, Bantry Bay, Robben Island sticking out above the sea and the Table Bay harbour. This beautiful setting captures Cape Town as it is as you look out over the ocean, boats bobbing about with glass as the only buffer between you and the sea. Bantry Bay has Clifton, Camps Bay and Glen Beach as its neighbours, all of which are prized for their privacy, shelter and safe waters where you can slip off the rocks into the sea or pack a picnic and watch the sun go down.

The V & A Waterfront an all-in-one experience, beautiful Table Mountain, markets for African art, craft and organic produce and guided walking tours of areas and cultures that survived the Apartheid regime, are all a short shuttle drive away.
