This luxury guesthouse in Camps Bay is also available to rent as an exclusive villa with all the frills.
If you had plans to vacation abroad during Cape Town’s rainy season, you might need to reconsider. The likelihood of us setting foot in an international departure lounge any time soon is slimmer than Kendall Jenner’s hips!
But, fret not, fellow Capetonians. We live in one of the most beautiful cities on the planet, and there’s no shortage of spectacular rentals offering world-class stays right on our doorstep.
One such spot is The Aven – a beautiful guesthouse and (should you so choose) private villa on the scenic Rontree Avenue in Camps Bay.
Fresh from a refurb at the beginning of 2020, the Ibiza-esque property oozes a luxe holiday charm, with its polished concrete floors and minimalist off-white, cream and wood-textured interiors. Panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Lion’s Head imbue the communal areas with a sense of calm that is carried through to each of the six bedrooms.
The best part? You can have it all to yourself…
Choose your stay
The Aven has six rooms – each as gorgeous as the next – available to rent out on a per-room basis, or as an exclusive-use villa to call your (extremely luxe) temporary home.
When operating as a boutique hotel, breakfast is included in your stay, as well as daily room service. And, should you book out the entire home for a private Mediterranean-style escape, you’ll have full use of all the eight rooms, and a private chef cooking your daily meals.
All rooms have luxurious en-suite bathrooms, stocked mini-bars and breathtaking views of the sea, mountains and city below. The style is minimalistic, with warm colours providing a decidedly Mediterannean feel for a dream vacation in Cape Town.
