So unobtrusive, so politely placed, you’d be forgiven for missing it. Ellerman House‘s entrance in Cape Town‘s seafront suburb of Bantry Bay is remarkably deceiving, as are the entirely separate entrances to its two exceptional Villas next door.
But behind this unassuming facade, one finds the exceptional. We’ve brought you a look inside the exclusive Ellerman House, and now it’s time to take a peek inside its Villas.
Villa Two’s views are sure to delight from every angle.
Early 20th, turn-of-the-century charm permeates across the main house’s lawns while, adjacent, two striking works of architecture drink in the landscape with floor-to-ceiling windows and access via staircases which are, in themselves, works of art.

At Villa One and Villa Two, guests will find themselves on the same grounds as one of the finest small hotels in the world but in a decidedly more modern setting complemented by an alluring, unusual design aesthetic. The contrast between Ellerman House and its Villas is striking, and yet, it works.
The Main Entertainment Area at Villa One
This exceptional work of architecture is the perfect setting for a family holiday. Sprawled across almost 700m2 of floor area, there is more than enough room for activities, and children of all ages are welcome. Smaller families of up to 6 can choose to make levels two and three their home-away-from-home or, for larger gatherings of up to 10, add the two Deluxe Spa Rooms on level one to your stay.
Villa One at Ellerman House welcomes children of all ages.
Villa One isn’t just for families, though. Large groups who need to get away and who believe pampering along with privacy is the new luxury, can have the complete exclusivity of the spa area with its double treatment room, spa therapist, and holistic range of treatments. A geometric swimming pool almost seems to fall into the ocean from the entertainment level while (if you’ve booked the spa level in its entirety), you’ll have access to that floor’s wading pool.

With every tastefully-adorned corner designed to greet opulence with comfort, Ellerman House’s Villa Two is the perfect setting for a group of friends holidaying together or an older family. Three sublime en-suite bedrooms, an infinity pool, and large entertainment area with chef’s kitchen can only be described as contemporary beach-house glam thanks to its spectacular sea views and location in what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish and sought-after suburbs on the entire continent.

Feel right at home with a movie night in your private cinema or let dusk’s light infiltrate every inch of the main entertainment level through its fold-away glass doors while your personal chef – always on call – creates tantalizing taste bud delights in the kitchen. Minimalist decor and original artwork adorn the walls, cementing Ellerman House’s reputation for having one of the largest contemporary art collections in the country – open only to guests.

The Villas certainly have modern finishings and a decidedly contemporary edge, but the old world glamour of Ellerman House shines through in every aspect of these spaces. For the ultimate in refinement, luxury, unbeatable ambiance, and a place you’ll #NeverLeave – visit Villa One and Two at Ellerman House.

Jozi-born, Knysna local, and recovering yachtie, Melanie decided that she missed being land-based after 18 months sailing the seas. Now that she lives in the most beautiful city in Africa (she is adamant about this fact), you will find her trying out new things around Cape Town, dreaming about her next holiday, and using Wikipedia to enhance her skills as an encyclopaedia of useless information.
