Sleek, modern and in one of the most exclusive suburbs of Cape Town, The Cheviots is the perfect private hideaway for a warm-weather family holiday or a beach getaway with friends. The bright, open indoor and outdoor living spaces of this luxury Camps Bay vacation rental stretch out in front of the ocean and mountain views for which the city is famous.
Better still, the beach and mountains are just a short drive away from this five-bedroom haven.Each of the villa’s three levels opens to a terrace or balcony with breathtaking vistas of mountains and sea. Spend the day on a lounge chair in front of the pool, then, as night falls, heat up the barbecue, switch on the sound system and gather at the al-fresco dining area.
Finish the evening sipping drinks from the outdoor bar or stargazing from the lounge area off the bedrooms, or, on cooler evenings, cozy up to the fireplace inside with a glass of a local vintage from the wine fridge.With a concrete frame clad in wall-to-wall sliding glass doors, The Cheviots angles around the pool deck in an L shape. An array of modern furnishings invites guests to the open-plan great room, from the minimalist sand-toned sofas and molded Eames-inspired dining chairs to the glass-topped accent and dining tables. The fully equipped kitchen opens to a second, more secluded outdoor dining area.Each of the five bedrooms at The Cheviots has an en-suite bathroom.
The master suite has a king bed, lounge area and ocean views, and a second king bedroom, which could be used as a honeymoon suite, has its own lounge and dining areas, kitchenette, balcony and ocean views. There are two other bedrooms with king beds and one bedroom with two twin beds.If you can be tempted to leave the villa’s sunny terraces, it’s only a 3-minute drive to the oceanfront restaurants and white sands of Camps Bay Beach, and a 5-minute drive to local favorite Clifton Beach.
Get close to South Africa’s incredible scenery with a hike around the Twelve Apostles or a cable-car ride up Table Mountain, or make the 7 km drive into central Cape Town to explore this lively, cosmopolitan city.
