Über dieses Inserat

Shell Cottage is truly magical: super-stylish but so different to the steel & glass norm with its lovely 'bohemian beach chic' character.
It's set in the heart of Camps Bay village just a road back from the trendy promenade's buzz...but step through your front gate and you'll find yourself in a secret haven of peace and tranquility surrounded by mountain views.
Timber boardwalks meander through the lushest garden imaginable filled with trees, birds and a bouquet of scented flowers & citrus.

Shell Cottage is set right in the heart of the village, just one road back from the trendy buzz of the promenade...but step through your front gate and you'll find yourself in a secret haven of peace and tranquility, hidden away from the world. Timber boardwalks meander for 50m through the lushest garden imaginable filled with hibiscus, lavender and all sorts of flowers and scents. Floating timber decks overhung by a giant Persian Lilac tree are surrounded by views of the Twelve Apostles and Lions Head mountains.

Shell Cottage is very different from many of the ultra-modern steel, glass and concrete properties on the Atlantic Seaboard, as it offers a lovely sense of privacy and space. Most people say that they immediately feel at peace, and at home, in this stylishly architecturally renovated gem, filled with beauty inside and out.

It's a home that has been created with a lot of care and attention to detail, giving it real soul. A top architectural designer has renovated it into a superstylish home whilst retaining its beach cottage feel. Equipped to to the highest standard, it offers everything an international traveler may need in a self catering property, including wi-fi, satellite television, excellent security. It houses a collection of original art, quality furniture and many special pieces lovingly collected over time. Beds are dressed with white pure cotton linen and oversized soft cushion. The garden has many hidden treasures: there's a reflection pool guarded by a serene stone buddah, mosaiced stepping stones, crystals hidden amongst the foliage and, for the little ones to play on, a lifesize wooden sheep named Ma-aaa-ary!

Though fairly compact, the property feels spacious and airy as it enjoys a wonderful flow from outside to inside, and the care and attention to detail is evident. The lounge opens up completely onto the generous patio and pool deck, which overlooks the garden.

Each of the bedrooms is unique and stylishly designed, and all open either onto the garden or private courtyards. Each of the en-suite bathrooms has its own unique theme, with an emphasis on nature - sand textures, pebbles, mother-of-pearl, driftwood.

More about the fabulous location: one of the best things about Shell Cottage is its most desirable position - Camps Bay beachfront is very close; less than a 150m stroll from the front door down a palm lined walkway but, despite being so close to the buzz, the cottage suffers no noise due to its secluded panhandle location off The Drive, a quiet residential road.

The local tennis courts and play park are across the road, and within a few minutes’ walk you have access to in excess of 35 restaurants, a number of bars, a library, shops, and all the other amenities that Camps Bay offers.

Shell Cottage is a holiday house that appeals to all ages. Its single level design & enclosed garden suits families with young children or the elderly but its stylish design and great location, just behind the trendy sunset strip and the beach’s great surf break, make it a dream holiday location for a group of friends who want to have a fun holiday.

Zugang für Gäste

Weitere wichtige Infos

Fabulously private and quiet, yet so close to the action of the Camps Bay beachfront. Other properties which are not as lucky to be this close to the beach have to drive down and park miles away. You can also walk home from the restaurants and bars in the evening and not worry that you've enjoyed a lovely glass or wine or two.

Also, if you are a group larger than 8 I have access to another property very close by, when we can supply 1 or 2 extra self contained rooms, 3 bedrooms all ensuite or all 5 together, thereby being able to sleep a total of up to 18 people!

It's a private oasis nestles in Camps Bay. Cute, quirky yet warm decor, and each of the generous sized double bedroom had its own unique feel. It was winter so although we didn't use the pool or beach (except for daily morning walks) we made full use of the open fireplace and hot baths (one in each ensuite!). We took our 2 teens/20yo on safari and stopped off in Cape Town for a few nights and it was the perfect location. We tended to stay in, cook and hang out of an evening and go exploring during the day. With a car it was really easy to get to The Cape of Goodhope, Stellenbosch, Table Mountain, V&A. Ali's helper came each day to tidy, make beds and, for a little extra, also did washing and ironing. Loved our stay!!

A central, comfortable location to all attractions in Cape Town. House was perfect for our multiple family group with private bedrooms/bathrooms and cozy communal areas. We enjoyed a nightly fire in the fireplace and walking to the local gelato store. Kitchen is well stocked if you would like to cook or entertain. Beach walkable with many restaurants close by to the house. Daily housekeeping services were much appreciated. We would return again. Thank you Ali and Privilege, your cottage made a memorable vacation for our family!

Antwort von Ali:
Peter and Roslind arrived 5 hours early and, as a favour to them after their long travels, I welcomed them into the house with no extra charge, whilst carefully explaining that the house would only be fully ready at the check in time of 2pm. This gift had a knock on effect: the pool cleaning service was scheduled for 1pm as usual, but Peter insisted that I call them in earlier so they could have a perfectly clean pool for their free morning. I did this for them, absorbing the extra cleaning fee myself. But unfortunately, in Peter's case, doing my client the favour of allowing them in before the house is fully prepared resulted in them not having the best possible first impression, with translated into a series of fault finding, despite close communication and offers from my side, and impeccable service from the lovely Privilege. The wifi speed is the top available currently in the area. The pool is dark blue and solar heated but, being the end of summer, it wasn't at its warmest but was certainly not 'very cold'. And the amenities are exactly as described - please read my other reviews to see what all my other guests say!

Nutzerprofil von Ali

Architectural designer and restorer of historic houses, impassioned transformer of buildings into the most beautiful living spaces, developer of out-of-the-ordinary boutique accommodation, international guest coordinator and very proudly Capetonian.

Having lived in London and traveled extensively, i am happily settled in the city of my birth and believe it is one of the best places in the world to live. Not only is Cape Town exceptionally scenic, but that beauty is so accessible...we live on the beach and spend much of our spare time in or on the water, but we also run and cycle the magnificent coastal roads, hike any of the many mountain trails around the city or horse ride on long white beaches or through hilly vineyards, all without battling crowds or traffic.

When we're feeling less energetic we sit at seaside pavement cafes with a great cappuccino and a backgammon board, enjoy delicious and affordable fresh food at one of the stylish restaurants that Cape Town is so famous for, chill at a cool urban bar listening to a local band or stroll through the city on warm evenings when all the art galleries are open late. Life is fabulous here...there are good reasons why Cape Town has again been voted Best City to visit for the 3rd year running.

I have 15 years experience in hospitality (3 properties in Cape Town and 2 in Greece) and honestly do my best to give my guests the best and happiest holiday experience. After all, I want you to come back and bring your friends and family with you!
