Property description

Sun Lion Villa, with its original and inspired architecture, is a house built to maximise the appreciation of the landscape that surrounds it. Viewed from the terrace, a sweeping panorama encompasses the Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain, Lions Head and the Twelve Apostles. Built on an incline, the deck, swimming pool and garden overlook the coastline and setting sun. In keeping with the style of the rest of the house, the swimming pool has no square edges or corners, and blends into the surrounding shape of the private garden and lawn. A perimeter wall insures both pool and garden are protected from the gazes of neighbours and passers-by, allowing the guest total privacy.

it is extremely rare to find good-sized, detached properties for rent with so few bedrooms, because the average house in Camps Bay has 4 or 5 bedrooms, making it prohibitively expensive for smaller numbers of occupants to find somewhere if they desire the privacy of an entire property to themselves.

Information for golfers: The following nine golf courses are within a half hour drive from Sun Lion Villa: Bellville, Clovelly, Metropolitan, Milnerton, Mowbray, Rondebosch, Royal Cape, Steenberg and Westlake. A further nine clubs are reachable within the hour: Atlantic Beach, Boschenmeer, Erinvale, Pearl Valley, Somerset West, Spier, Stellenbosch and Strand. There are four more golf courses within the Western Cape Province; Arabella, Hermanus, Langebaan and Worcester, but those can only realistically be enjoyed as part of an entire day trip outing.

Some recommended outings: Cape Point Nature Reserve, Table Mountain cable car (only 4 kms away) and the famous Stellenbosch and Paarl wine routes.

  • Guests Provide Their Own Meals

Onsite Services

  • Housekeeper Optional


  • Children Welcome:

    Please be aware that the terrace and pool areas do not have sufficient protection for infants, neither in the form of nets or fencing (see photos) and therefore may not be suitable for children of a very young age, unless under constant supervision....moreless

  • Pets Considered
  • Unsuitable For Elderly Or Infirm
  • Wheelchair Inaccessible

Bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5

  • Bedroom 1: 1 double


  • Bedroom 2: 1 double


  • Living room: 1 sleep sofa /futon


  • There are two double bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathrooms, so if you are two single occupants you would have a bedroom and bathroom each, and if you are a couple sharing a bed, you would have a choice of which bedroom to stay in, and the other will be kept empty so that you will have the entire house, pool and garden to yourselves. The house is ideal for two couples, but if you are 5 or 6, there is a sofa bed in the form of a fold-up futon in the living room that can be used as an extra bed. In such a case, the occupants of the living room would have to share the second couple's bathroom, which is accessible through a separate entrance. Aside from that, in terms of seating and dining, cutlery plates etc, there is plenty for six or more guests. For more details and photographs, you may go to the following link:

Bathrooms: 2 Bathrooms

  • Bathroom 1: toilet, combination tub/shower


  • Bathroom 2: toilet, shower


  • Two sets of bathroom and bathing towels are provided, as well as two full sets of bed linen per occupant....moreless

Other Amenities

  • A bright and spacious semi-circular living room with pillars and a fireplace is the centre-piece onto which other multi-levelled rooms look, including an open space dining area and kitchen for socializing at mealtimes. The terrace is also an inviting location suitable for dining; whether it is for a sunny breakfast or for candlelit dinners or barbeque's under the stars. The house is fitted with a comprehensive alarm system, and has a security contract with ADT, the largest of the local security firms. The system was renewed and updated in 2008. Please note that there are steps up to the front door, so the property is unsuitable for the elderly or infirm....moreless
