Ellerman House in Cape Town is the perfect luxury hideaway for discerning guests, with one of the most exclusive addresses in the Mother City. This tranquil boutique hotel caters for guests seeking a sublime destination far-away from the maddening tourist crowds of Cape Town’s hub. Known for its classic artworks and understated sophistication, Ellerman House is certainly a place catering for the elite, but without the ostentatious atmosphere.
Overlooking the striking sapphire waters of the Cape’s Atlantic Ocean, Ellerman House certainly sets the standard in terms of location. Oh Ellerman House, you most certainly are a calm, classic and cool sanctuary showcasing the grand life reminiscent of a bygone era. High tea for me please, served in bespoke tea cups accompanied by your signature sandwiches.
There are two exclusive use villas ideal for small groups. Each villa is a mixed architectural masterpiece of contemporary builds, designed to make the most of seaside living.
Flanked by the lofty sedimentary sandstone mountains, and surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the villas are certainly ideal for that “I’m in the Hamptons” holiday. This is beachside glamour personified.
Decor is peppered with modern artworks, designed to bring pops of colour to the cool blue hues of the open spaces villas. Expansive glass doors ensure the breezy seaside life becomes a part of the minimalist interior, and natural light filters throughout.
Each Villa is privately staffed and guests can take solace in knowing that their time is flexible, and their own. Lunch is served when you desire and languid days around the infinity pool are encouraged. Villa One can accommodate 2 – 10 people and has 3 levels of oceanside bliss. Just glorious.
Villa Two is similar to Villa One with its overall look and feel, but only has two levels. This villa sleeps up to 6 people, but has plenty of spacious areas for entertainment. Also equipped with a private infinity pool, this designer Villa also makes the perfect escape for small groups.
The actual Ellerman House Hotel has seductive views of the coastline and caters for individual guests/couples in more of a bed and breakfast manner. There are 13 individually styled bedrooms in the hotel, each of which is nothing short of inviting.
In conjunction with an array of luxury accommodation options, Ellerman House also offers sundowner experiences, has its own wine cellar, bar area, and their own sugar shack pantry. Of course, these are only a few of the things on offer at Ellerman. There is so much more to discover – attention to detail is their forte.
Haven’t heard of Ellerman House? That’s probably because it’s one of Cape Town’s best kept in-the-know-five-star secrets. Mandela loved it, and so did Oprah. Could this be your oasis in a city that never sleeps?
