Always wanted to holiday in a Clifton villa, above Cape Town’s most glamorous beach? Well, the secret’s out….this darling three-bedroomed villa not only has its own heated lap pool with spectacular views of Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles, but is literally a footpath away from Cape Town’s most attractive beaches.

Situated on a small peninsular that curves outwards towards the sea at the far end of the famous Clifton Fourth Beach, this little enclave remains relatively unspoilt by surrounding developments and so it offers one of the most authentic seaside experiences on this coastline. Visit The Ridge and you’ll feel like you’ve come home – to a much-loved beach house set in a tranquil garden with access to tennis courts, a rare feature for Clifton properties. Luxuriously comfortable, The Ridge offers absolute privacy and peace with air conditioning throughout. And while you might hear the flutter of paragliders from Lion’s Head coming in to land nearby and can be a part of the buzz if the mood takes you, the villa remains an oasis of calm, especially during the summer holiday season.

Balinese architectural features add generous proportions and individual style to the villa, while quality linen, luxurious finishes and thoughtful extras give each room an added sense of comfort. Each of the three cosy bedrooms has carved Indonesian doors leading to the tranquil garden, allowing the moist and salty sea breezes to drift through the villa on hot days, while giving a wonderful sense of connection with the outdoors. Well-designed, en-suite bathrooms have luxurious fittings and there’s ample dressing room storage. An additional, smaller fourth bedroom with its own entrance is on a lower level and is perfect for families with teenagers who like their privacy, or families travelling with an au-pair or chauffeur.

The open-plan kitchen and living area flows outdoors to the terrace, lap pool and lush surrounding garden – an entertainer’s dream. Retractable sliding doors open up the entire length of the entertaining area, allowing the kitchen, dining and living areas full views of the Twelve Apostles beyond the pool and garden, as well as a greater sense of space.

Did we tell you that parking is the ultimate luxury here? All sorted…The Ridge has space for three cars.

Clifton is entirely residential (part of its charm) but the nearest shops are in Camps Bay which is five minutes’ drive. Excellent restaurants are also nearby or in the city centre – a 15-minute journey by car.
