Cape Town villa description

A stunning 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom self catering villa on Jarvis Street with a plunge pool, 2 sun-decks, alfresco dining area, sea views and an unrestricted view of Table Mountain.

It's in the ideal place for you to experience Cape Town, Green Point & De Waterkant Village. This house is in a chic, fashionable and historic part of the city where some of the properties date back centuries and have been sensitively restored so that none of the magic is lost.

At night the area is a magnet for Cape Town's trendy set. People spill onto the pavement at Cubana's (attracting the young & hip), Manhattan's, Amsterdam bar & the Cape Quarter for great food. For the night owls there are bars and clubs within walking distance.

During the day there's lots to do: Cape Quarter, Table Mountain, Robben Island & the winelands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, shopping at the V&A waterfront or spend a day at the beach!

Green Point stadium is a 7 minute walk & Newlands cricket ground and Kirstenbosh gardens a 15 minute drive.


How to get there? Cape Town has a great international airport and most of the world's big airlines fly there. For direct flights from the UK, British Airways, South African Airways and Virgin Atlantic have up to two flights a day. Most of the national European carriers also fly direct e.g. KLM and Lufthansa and there are flights from the US with South African Airways. Low cost routes via the Middle East may also be an option.

If you can't get a direct flight then you could fly to Johannesburg and connect with a no frills carrier like Kulula.com or Mango.com to Cape Town.

The Viila is 20 minutes in a taxi from the airport. Or you can quite easily pick up a rental car at the airport and drive into town. The roads are great and it's a 'drive on the left' like the UK.

OTHER QUESTIONS that you may have:

Can Airport Transfers be arranged?
Yes. Please give me your flight details and we can make arrangements for transfers from the airport and paid for locally directly to the taxi company.

How do I get Keys?
My agent will meet you at the house on your date / time of arrival and will also meet you on your departure. Please give us your cell phone number and tell us your arrival time or if you are likely to be delayed.

Is parking available?
There is parking directly outside the house. The road is patrolled and is considered a safe area. Just don’t leave things visible in your car for opportunists.

How often is the house cleaned / refreshed?
We will service the house every 5 days with a fresh supply of bedding and towels if you desire. There are cleaning products and a washing machine available should you need to use them. If you would like the help of a cleaner more frequently please speak to my agent on arrival to discuss your requirements.

Is there a welcome pack on arrival?
A vase of fresh flowers, a bowl of fruit and a chilled bottle of wine will be our welcoming gift. We will also supply a few basic provisions to get you started.

Would you like a pre arrival food shop?
If you give us a list of items a week before you arrive we will shop (subject to availability) on your behalf and have your shopping waiting for you when you arrive at the villa. The receipted cost for this is payable when you arrive with an added service cost of 200 Rands.

Is the pool open all year?

Unfortunately we keep the pool closed during the months of May to October which is the windy and wet season.

Is there a minimum rental during December?
Yes - between rentals falling December 20th and January 3rd we will only consider a 2 week minimum rental.

Are pets allowed?
We are sorry but only dogs for the blind will be welcome.

Can I have an early check-in or late check out?
Yes, we can consider all requests. If the house is vacant the day before or vacant the day after you leave then we are very likely to be able to say 'YES'!

Is internet access available?
Cape Town's internet infrastructure is poor. There is VERY limited in-house wifi access available on the ground floor of the villa but it has limited bandwidth and is subject to a GB usage cap and is subject to it being available and working. It's offered complimentary if it works and does not form part of the booking contract. There is also a local wireless provider called 'internet hotspot' that you are able to connect to for a small fee per week. My agent can give you details on how to connect. Details are also available within the house guide. Most coffee shops and restaurants also offer this service if you purchase something from them.

Is there a safety deposit box?
Yes. We will give you a code on your arrival. We will not however accept any liability whatsoever for any losses should any items go missing or in the event that you forget the code and can't get immediate access.

Can I smoke in the house?
I'm sorry we like to keep the house fresh. However, if you choose to smoke then smoking on the patio is allowed.

Can we hire a local guide to show us Cape Town and the night life? Yes my agent on arrival can make arrangements and discuss cost depending on what you require.


Additional notes from the owners:

NOTE: The rates shown are for renting the entire villa i.e. to sleep 4 people in the 2 bedrooms as a maximum.

Cancellations;
More than 30 days: full refund less £300 administration cost
Between 15 and 30 days: 75% refund or £300 whichever is the greater.
Between 0 & 15 days: No refunds unfortunately except the security deposit of £300. (So take out travel insurance).


Check - In is normally 3PM and Check - Out is 11AM. If you require more flexibility please ask and we will try to accommodate you where we can. Half day rates available on request.

The owners take no responsibility for any financial or personal loss or injury as a result of staying. We strongly advise you to take out personal travel insurance.

Since we are are renting our holiday home and we are not a business / hotel we do ask for all rentals to be paid 50% at the time of booking and the balance 30 days prior to the rental. We have a fair cancellation policy should the unfortunate happen.

We are however happy to accommodate any special requests.

We accept bookings for a minimum period of 4 nights.

There is also the requirement of a security rental deposit of UK£300 that is refunded within 10 days of departure. In the rare event that the house has any damage or is not left in a clean condition we reserve the right to deduct reasonable costs.
We are pleased to say that to date none of our guests have had any amount retained.

Car: Not Necessary

There is so much to do when visiting Cape Town you'll have to return. For this visit here are some ideas:

Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was in prison, Table Mountain, Cape Point (most southerly point of the African continent), Hermanus for whale watching and Penguins on Boulders beach. For cocktails go and watch the sun set on Camps Bay (the African Riviera) and also experience great seafood. For the Winelands (eat alfresco at Simonsig surrounded by stunning scenery).

Visit a Township to get the story on Cape Town or shop at the V&A Waterfront or Canal Walk. Other activities include Helicopter rides, Shark Diving, Golfing, and Surfing.

In the Evening why not dine at some of the world's best restaurants; we recommend

Cuvee at Simonsig wine estate

Tokara's - in the Winelands,

Bukhara's - a stunning Indian restaurant

Il Leone for fine Italian food

Cafe Dijon for Cape French food

Beluga’s for sushi and steaks

And we are within walking distance of bars and clubs and the Cape Town Gay and Lesbian district

Other Activities: Good night life, eating and drinking and the Gay scene of Cape Town
