“Located in a suburb that has seen the likes of Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela taking up residence, ‘18 on Hillwood’ is one of my finest acquisitions with its spectacular mountain views and close proximity to the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.
For those who wish to relax within the comfort of this private mansion, the infinity pool and tennis court set in tranquil lush gardens make for ideal holiday activities.
However, I love the convenience of this property. It is the ultimate base from which to explore the many scenic attractions of Cape Town, with easy access to highlights such as Cape Point further to the south or the renowned V&A Waterfront adjacent to the city centre.
Cape Town is such a beautiful city and is surrounded by kilometres of coastline and I’m convinced you’d be amiss to visit and not sail the sea. This leads me to one of the X factors in staying at ‘18 on Hillwood’ – the opportunity to cruise along the Atlantic Seaboard in my private 56 foot yacht called Ocean Princess. This nautical addition to a suburban stay will without doubt, be a highlight of any guest’s stay.
It’s opportunities like this that make the Bishopscourt villa the perfect choice for visitors who wish for a unique, tailor-made experience when visiting one of the world’s best cities”.
