This lovely refurbished colonial home is an old world charm with three bedrooms and is ideal for a group, friends or family.
The three-bedroom Lodge Apartment boasts fantastic views of the Twelve Apostles and the Atlantic Ocean. Built over a century ago as a retreat at the beachfront, the Lodge has been lovingly restored to its former state, rich brown mahogany sash windows and shutters, golden Oregon pine floors, rustic red clay tiles, all adding up to a delightful place where you can relax and enjoy Cape Town’s welcoming hospitality. Colonial Lodge is furnished with antique instruments which were collected, giving it a special kind of magic.
The lounge is in colonial style with leather and rich fabric furniture and fittings. Through the plate glass sash windows, you will see Bakoven beach, where Cape Town’s most selective sun seekers go to tan. Soak up some afternoon sun on the two comfortable wing chairs with Ottoman or curl up on the comfortable sofa, while reading a book or watching your favourite DVD.
There is a solar-heated swimming pool and barbeque on the paved deck outside, from which you can access through the old-fashioned double doors. There are eight lovely sun loungers on the sun deck to enjoy the perfect sunset while sipping on a chilled glass of champagne.
The three bedrooms benefit from mountain and sea views and each one has its own en-suite bathroom. In two of the rooms, you will find queen size beds and the other bedroom has two single beds which can be made up as a king size bed if you prefer.
One of the bathrooms has a bath with a stand shower, although the other two en-suite bathrooms each only have showers.
All of the appliances in the kitchen are brand spanking new, as it has been completely refurbished this year. Here you will find everything that you need for simple catering to entertaining your friends.
For those of you who occasionally enjoy eating out, take a short stroll to Camps Bay beach and promenade, where you will find an array of restaurants and bars.
The apartment is fully serviced every day except Christmas Day, and a laundry service is available. We will also help wherever possible when you are in need. So if you need a baby-sitter or would like help in choosing the best restaurant to go to, please let us know.
