Everything about 21Nettleton is enchanting and if you are looking for a “view” there is simply no better choice in Cape Town.

Lions Head Suite

This intimate space, with a modern and antique ensemble, overlooks one side of Lion’s Head, an iconic peak in Table Mountain National Park. The double-volume ceiling allows for warm afternoon light to stream into the room, creating a wonderful place to relax. The room itself is reminiscent of safaris. The art complements this desert setting, stemming from Arab and Jewish descent with a renaissance feel. The camel bone chest underneath the ornate cabinet keeps with the nomadic theme. Located one floor above the main garden, this suite has no terrace or separate minibar/lounge area, however the main bar and coffee/tea station is open to guests staying in the Lion’s Head Room.

King Room

The elegant suite has a super-size king bed and an outdoor terrace overlooking the ocean and the Twelve Apostles. The open-plan bath area, with hardwood floors, includes a freestanding bathtub and walk-in shower. As this space lets the natural light illuminate the bright and simple motif, the large and king-sized furniture carefully adds a warm contrast to the local colours. White on dark oak, grey against ornate gold, and black set with the royal dark hues of red. The King Room is located one level below the main garden in a private section of the house, and has a separate lounge with minibar and coffee/tea making facilities which can interconnect with the Queen Suite.

Queen Suite

The Queen Suite has an open, warm, and spacious feel with a charming décor of pastel pinks, featuring the much-loved ‘Giraffe in drag’. The floral patterns blend with the farm scene from the late 1800s, a sharp art piece of the empress, and Flemish Tapestry that hangs above the hand-carved desk piece. The suite has a large private outdoor terrace with uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Twelve Apostles. This can be opened up to include the King Room and Emperor Suite, which is ideal for families or large groups. The suite features a king-size bed, walk-in closet, a free-standing bath in the bedroom and an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. This beautiful suite is located one level below the lounge and main garden.

Emperor Suite

Asia meets Africa in the Emperor Suite, where jade artwork and bronze sculptures of zulu warriors catch the eye. This large sweeping room has antique pieces, granite floor inlays and beautifully upholstered chairs, which add extra warmth to the royal feeling. This classically styled suite has ample space with a king-size bed, his-and-hers wash basins, separate dressing room and lounge areas and a large private terrace with sensational mountain and ocean views. The suite was designed with an additional pull-down Murphy bed, which is ideal for children. The bed is tucked away neatly when not in use, providing a very open and elegant space to relax.

Steinway Suite

Located on the level below the Penthouse, the Steinway Suite has ample floorspace with magnificent views of the Twelve Apostles mountain range, while a large terrace facing the ocean provides elevated views of the Atlantic. With its own private library, a separate lounge and indoor dining area, and home to a Steinway Grand Piano – this plush suite is individually appointed and unique. Some of the favourite pieces here are the Turkish silk tapestry in a door frame, ‘Montagu Mountains’ by Francois Krige and a jade sculpture of monks watching over the building of the Great Wall of China. The private in-room minibar, snacks, tea-and-coffee-making facilities and a king-size bed complete the Steinway Suite.

Presidential Penthouse Suite

This opulent penthouse is in a class (and on a floor) of its own. The 360-degree ocean and mountain views are breathtaking, but the suite itself is just as impressive. There are two bathrooms, a steam room, several balconies, a separate lounge and daybed relaxation space, a dining area and a drawing room with fireplace and TV. The interior of the Presidential Suite evokes early 19th Century Europe with its various Biedermeier pieces and renaissance artworks, topped off with traditional Pixiu dragons guarding the entrance. There’s a comprehensive in-room minibar, tea and coffee making facilities as well as an exclusive snack bar. With command over the entire house from the top floor, the Penthouse is the epitome of privacy.
