Full property description

This charming five bedroom beachside cottage on Glen Beach has all the attractions of a secluded beach setting, with the modern day comforts of elegant living with each floor enjoying a very distinctive feel.

This very private home occupies a 1,000sqm site that is completely concealed from its neighbours by verdant tropical foliage. Dolphin Bungalow is perfectly situated only steps from the most discreet and private sand beach in Cape Town and adjacent to the much larger and popular Camps Bay beach and restaurants.

This deceptively spacious villa is in the most popular part of Cape Town and yet completely private and hidden from the outside world, such that even locals who know the area have trouble finding it.

The first floor is dedicated solely to the spacious master bedroom suite with an intricate wooden ceiling of interwoven trusses redolent of maritime design. A central wardrobe partition separates the bedroom suite from the very private en-suite lounge.

There is a wide balcony to the front facilitating expansive sea views and views of Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles mountain range, while two further balconies lead off on both sides. To one side the balcony looks through the trees to the pool and back garden and enjoys views of Lions Head while on the other side a spacious private sun deck beckons.

The double en-suite bedroom on the ground floor is also very private with double doors leading onto the spacious front deck and enjoys a classic frontal sea view through the palms trees, with views into the tropical jungle on the side. On the lower ground floor, a double ensuite bedroom looks onto a waterfall, with two single bedrooms looking into the garden and sharing a bathroom. The two lower ground bathrooms have a clean modern feel utilising limestone, travertine and caesar stone.

This is the ultimate beach house for the discerning client who wants the convenience of beachside living in a private, secure and wind free environment, without any of the compromises normally associated with a beachside bungalow.

Location

Area description

The spectacular setting of the upmarket sea-side suburb of Camps Bay is hard to beat and being just 10 minutes' drive from Cape Town City Centre provides the perfect relaxing base from which to explore the many attractions of the area.

Camps Bay lies on the lower slopes of Lion's Head and the Twelve Apostles mountain range and boasts spectacular sea and mountain views. Many of our Camps Bay villas and apartments are just a short walk or drive from the long white sandy beach, lined with palm trees and lively bars and restaurants, all of which has created a reputation for Camps Bay as a truly world-class holiday destination.
