    Rodwell House

    Saint James

    Description

    With the mountains at your back and the arc of False Bay at your feet, Rodwell House — located within an unpretentious millionaires' mile of grand old mansions-feels off-the-beaten track, yet brings you easy access to the Peninsula's more subtle pleasures. From here, it's a short hop to the penguins at Boulders, or the empty beaches of Cape Point, or the Constantia winelands. Easier still, pop downstairs to plunder one of the country's finest private cellars, hidden in the basement of this enchanting manor house. With its terraced garden and patios, comfortable lounges and impeccably stylish suites, it's an Old World kind of place but far from old-fashioned, with graciously integrated modern conveniences to complement the pukka period elements. Rise early to join the locals taking their daily dip in the refreshing waters of the tidal pool at one of Cape Town's most photographed Victorian-era beaches, or watch the surfers who worship the waves here; better still, shed your shoes and join them. In true colonial spirit, just about anything's possible, thanks to impeccable staff who make you feel at ease in a space that's homey and regal in equal measure.
    Bedrooms and Bathrooms: Sleeps: 16 in 8 doubles. A 9th suite is available by prior arrangement Seven en-suite bedrooms on the second floor, and one off the Moroccan-style courtyard. All feature private balconies or patios; most enjoy gorgeous sea views. Various sizes, all furnished to the same exacting standard as the public spaces. Six of the suites feature 2-person tubs and walk-in showers; two are shower only.
