Tucked into the side of the cliff face of Lion’s Head, above the Cape’s famous Clifton beaches.
Overlooking the seemingly never ending Atlantic Ocean and Twelve Apostles mountains, this five-storey property opened in November 2012.
If location is nine tenths of the law then Cape View Clifton, the consummate luxury guesthouse on the Atlantic Seaboard, can raise its hand to claim this prize.
Tucked into the side of the cliff face of Lion’s Head, above the Cape’s famous Clifton beaches and overlooking the seemingly never ending Atlantic Ocean and Twelve Apostles mountains, this five-storey property opened in November 2012.
Owned, run and designed by Jessica Latimer, her intention to create the personal feel of a private home combined with the subtle sumptuousness of a stylish guesthouse is faultlessly accomplished. Jess, an interior designer and stylist by trade, honed her design and decor skills refurbishing smaller properties in London’s Chelsea. She personally oversees the daily running of the guesthouse, down to the buying and arranging of the flower arrangements; the daily food shopping and liaising with the kitchen on what will be offered to guests for breakfast each day. This attention to detail and hands on approach, combined with the ease and sophistication of staying at Cape View Clifton, ensures that guests feel completely relaxed and pampered in ‘home from home’ luxurious comfort.
Design and décor seamlessly echo the majestic backdrop of the unique Cape coastline and is inspired by the neutral colour schemes found in the sand, sea and local fauna and flora. Each spacious suite is designed with maximum privacy in mind and includes a large open plan bedroom and lounge area, a deluxe bathroom and a balcony. All rooms on the property enjoy uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Twelve Apostles, Clifton beaches and Camps Bay.
The 556 square meter property comprises five luxury deluxe and junior suites and three self-catering apartments; all with panoramic sea and mountain views. There is a beautifully designed, contemporary dining area for meals with an honesty bar; and a huge deck extends the width of the building and a garden terrace with an indigenous garden, giving complete privacy. The pool deck has a 15 square meter swimming pool so that guests can take in the property’s unique views from luxurious sun loungers.
The three self-catering apartments epitomise comfortable luxury. One two and one three bedroom apartments are ideally suited for groups of travellers, families with children over the age of 12, or for longer stays. They both boast exquisitely finished living and dining areas, small, well equipped kitchens and private balconies with a Jacuzzi overlooking the ocean. The one bedroomed apartment spans two levels and is the last word in private, sumptuous and understated luxury with a private plunge pool and butler.
The dedicated team, discreet yet friendly, are wholly committed to the Cape View Clifton ethos of comfort, care and concern. There is a personalised concierge service, for any of the countless activities available or restaurant reservations and our breakfast ladies caters specifically to guests’ tastes and preferences and private dinners or small functions can be arranged by prior arrangement.
