Our huge 2-bedroom sea-view Villa Marina has serious Wow factor! Its Beach Road address only hints at how close the ocean is.
The panoramic windows tell all, with waves crashing the shoreline only about 30 metres from the front door!
The shiny new high-quality interiors are super-chic with touches of design brilliance in a palate of black and white. Being in the Golden Mile of Mouille Point (very expensive real estate) it tops the list of desirable locations for a Cape Town holiday apartment.
A great location is nothing without the comforts of home and Villa Marina gives you the works in terms of quality and style. It’s on the second floor of a smart apartment block with a doorkeeper on duty in the entrance. You are going to want to leap into the lovely king-size beds and admire the hand-selected furniture and fabrics from top local designers.
The ocean traffic is mesmerising and you can watch ships line up at sea awaiting their turn to dock in Cape Town Harbour. All this from your bed or sofa! If you can tear yourself away, there is a TV with satellite channels.
Beach Road is renowned for popular restaurants and cafés and a seaside promenade that stretches for 3km. Right behind the apartment (with a view from 2nd bedroom) is Greenpoint Park and Cape Town Stadium making a grand impression.

This area is a wonderful mixture of tres chic and slightly sporty (joggers and bikers along the promenade) and as with everywhere in Cape Town, casual and relaxed. There are a great choice of popular cafes and restaurants along Beach Road and in the neighbourhood, which could include V&A Waterfront since it’s only 1.5km away.
