    Shell Cottage

    Camps Bay

    Description

    One of Camps Bay’s original homes, Shell Cottage has been totally revamped into a stylish four bedroom holiday house whilst still retaining its simple, beach-style character.
    One of the best things about Shell Cottage is its incredible location. Camps Bay beachfront is very close; less than a 200m stroll from the front door down a palm lined walkway. Despite being so close to the buzz, the cottage suffers no noise due to its secluded panhandle location off The Drive, a quiet residential road.
    From the moment you come in through the front gate and meander along the boardwalks into the large, lush and shady garden, surrounded by views of the Twelve Apostles and Lions Head mountains, you feel as though you have entered a haven. Floating timber decks lead you through the lushest garden imaginable filled with hibiscus, lavender and all sorts of flowers and scents. The property is very different from many of the ultra-modern steel, glass and concrete homes on the Atlantic Seaboard, and it offers a lovely sense of space and peace.
    The property is spacious and airy and it enjoys a wonderful flow from outside to inside. The lounge opens up completely onto the generous patio and pool deck, which overlooks the garden. Each of the bedrooms is unique and stylishly designed, and all open either onto the garden or onto private courtyards. Each of the en-suite bathrooms has its own unique theme, with an emphasis on nature — sand textures, pebbles, mother-of-pearl, driftwood.
    This is a home that has been created with a lot of care and attention to detail, giving it real soul. Despite its beach cottage feel, this home is equipped to the highest standards and it offers the international traveller all that he or she might want in a self catering property, including wireless internet access and satellite television.
    The local tennis courts and play park are across the road, and within a few minutes’ walk you have access to in excess of 25 restaurants, a number of bars, a library, shops, and all the other amenities that Camps Bay offers.
    Shell Cottage is a holiday house that appeals to all ages. Its single level and enclosed garden suits families with young children or the elderly but its stylish design and great location, just behind the trendy sunset strip and the beach’s great surf break, make it a dream holiday location for a group of friends.
    Treat yourself to a wonderful stay at this beautiful beach cottage, in Cape Town’s favourite beach suburb of Camps Bay.

    A verandah leads off the lounge, on the edge of which is a 7x3m charcoal coloured pool. Beyond the pool lies the lush and private garden, with a small pond with goldfish, small fountain and a Buddah statue. A secluded corner under the trees is the perfect place for afternoon naps.

      Echelon
      Echelon is unique, newly renovated luxury vacation rental in Sea Point. Styled in elegant contemporary designer fabrics and modern art set against a white palette, makes this an opulent retreat for the self indulgent holiday maker.
      This luxury apartment enters into an open plan kitchen and living room area. The kitchen, with gas stove top, convection oven, grill and warming tray has sleek designer cupboards and a smooth, pristine work island. In contrast with this is the grainy earthiness of the huge fossilised shell on the coffee table in the pristine living room. Above the six seater mahogany dining table is a breathtaking crystal drum chandelier in dramatic opposition to the bleached whale bone on the living room wall.
      The open plan living room space is maximised by seamlessly flowing onto the balau timber decked patio. A foldaway deck-cover awning provides much needed shade and privacy for hot summer days. A private rim flow pool overlooks the majestic Atlantic Seaboard in the distance.
      Masses of white cushions and over-sized planters that light up dramatically once the sun goes down make this the ultimate entertainment area.
      The master bedroom with queen size bed leads off the living room. Ample wardrobe space, glittering Swarovski crystal bedside lamps and a high-gloss mirror frame contrast against the split marble feature wall. The en suite bathroom features a luxurious free standing bath and spacious shower which are discretely kept by sliding panes of frosted glass. The second bedroom has two single beds and a dedicated bathroom.
      An informal living room-come home office are split from the formal open plan living and kitchen area by sliding panes of glass. The apartment has wireless internet and all the additional amenities including a nespresso coffee machine, meeting the avid traveller’s every need.
