Ellerman Estate

16 guests · 8 bedrooms · 8 bathrooms
Capture panoramic ocean views from this multi-terraced home in the foothills of Cape Town’s Lion Head Mountain. Sip your morning coffee as you gaze out over the city’s vibrant coast and downtown area. After your private chef prepares breakfast, head out for an exciting day exploring the beaches, seaside restaurants, and downtown shopping in Cape Town. 
The Ellerman Estate is split into 2 separate villas, offering your group of 16 a second kitchen, pool, and lots of dining options. Follow parquet flooring through breezy open-concept interiors. Take a moment to enjoy each villa’s eclectic collection of art. Then head back outside for a cocktail while you watch the sun set over the Atlantic. When it cools down at night, warm up by the fireplace in the lounge.  
On quiet nights in, set the kids up with a movie or stream a new series in the media room. Take care of any lingering business in the office. If you’re keeping up with a fitness routine, the Ellerman Hotel has a shared gym, as well as a wine gallery and spa. You’ll also appreciate complimentary airport transfers and daily housekeeping. 
The hike to the top of Lion’s Head takes about 90-minutes. At the top, you’ll be rewarded with the best views in the city, so make sure to bring a camera. If you’ve worked up an appetite, there’s a small cafe at the peak. If you can wait until after your dissent, lunch at Black Sheep is a great idea if you’d like to try some Cape signature dishes. At night, Victoria Road by Camps Bay Beach is always buzzing.
