Rising six stories with a dramatic rock backdrop and panoramic sea views, Mwanzoleo?Capetown?s most luxurious private villa?is a five-bedroom sanctuary of uncompromising comfort, luxury and design that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. This private villa was designed for a lifestyle connoisseur who demands over-the-top comfort coupled with the convenience and amenities of a private hotel.

 

Mwanzoleo?which means ?beginning today? in Swahili?is widely revered as the finest property in Cape Town, developed with no expense spared.  The villa was dreamed up by a consortium of aesthetically knowledgeable British and South African businessmen, who wished to create a holiday environment for their own use.  The property is a breathtaking study in timeless design.
 
 
 

With a modernist feel and inspiring panoramic sea views, flowing open spaces, and magnificent light, Mwanzoleo includes impressive indoor water features, which introduce the calming sound of cascading water throughout the house.  In addition to glass flooring that meets large slabs of vein-cut travertine and bold American walnut floors, the quality finishes and refined interior design allow for sophisticated entertaining as well as secluded relaxation.  You can effortlessly unwind in the villa?s glass mosaic rim-flow pool, which is maintained at a constant 28 degrees Celsius.

 

 

Yet, this ?less is more? philosophy of design and comfort does not come cheaply?this exclusive five-bedroom, five-bathroom property with an ocean view pool can be rented through Luxury Retreats from $2,956 a night to $15,370 a night at the height of the season.  Of course, a security team, a chef, a housekeeper and a villa manager are all extra.  For those seeking a more affordable alternative, LuxuryVilla.com has a variety of villas available in Cape Town and a variety of other cities around the world.
 
 
 
 
Although Mwanzoleo is situated within walking distance from Cape Town?s famed Clifton and Camps Bay beaches as well as the city?s top restaurants, street cafes and nightlife spots, we doubt that you will want to leave once you have arrived.
