It's no secret that many of Cape Town's luxury villas offer amazing views. Specifically, seaside views! Since so many of them are located by the sea, the coastal sceneries that you'd get to enjoy in any one of them are second to none. But what about other views? Say, mountain views, perhaps? South Africa's Western Cape houses a breathtaking mountain range, after all. Not to mention a few iconic peaks. If you can rent a nice luxury villa in Cape Town
with scenic mountain views, you'll definitely enjoy your time here more!
The very modern and almost spaceship-like design of Villa Sierra is already striking enough. Yet, when you get here, you can't help but stare at the stunning mountain nearby! After all, it's Table Mountain, regarded as the oldest mountain in the world. The site alone is one of the most fascinating things about South Africa
. And you get to enjoy an awesome view of it in a luxury villa in Cape Town! You can even still see it when you swim in the rental's private infinity pool or take a dip in the bubbling hot tub!
What's great about the scenic mountain views in Casa Blanca is that it's all over the place. On one side of the Cape Town luxury villa, there's a magnificent mountain range with awesome rock formations and lush green fields. And on another side, you can see the Western Cape's iconic Lion's Head mountain in all its glory. The perfect spot in Casa Blanca to look at it is even in the backyard. You can easily snap an Instagram-worthy shot while you lie down on a sun bed or enjoy a swim in the pool.
Located in the Camps Bay neighborhood of Cape Town
, Upper House is another villa that has a great view of Lion's Head mountain. In fact, if you want a selfie with the famous natural wonder, you can just stand on the balcony and say cheese. You couldn't have found a more perfect Instragammable spot in Cape Town
than this! The contrast between the tall and majestic mountain to the well-lit district nearby is also something else. That'd make for a great Instagram post as well, one that will inspire wanderlust in anyone who will see it!
Since Bella Riposa villa is perched pretty high up in the Camps Bay area, the views of Lion's Head mountain from here are practically second to none! The magnificent mountain looks pretty close here, so much so that you almost feel like any rock you throw will reach it. And when it's all cloudy outside, you'd get to see a slightly eerie but otherwise similarly breathtaking view of the famous mountain. Sure, the seaside scene from the other corner of this luxury villa in Cape Town is also great, but it's really the one of Lion's Head mountain that will excite you!
Ty Gwyn is another luxury villa in Cape Town that's so high up the Camps Bay area, it's practically the edge of the city itself. You may be near other houses, but let's just say that you won't exactly have an easy time accessing public transport from here. That's how nearer you are to nature than the rest of Cape Town! This also means that you get to enjoy the mountainous views all to yourself. And boy are they stunning! You're so close to the mountain range that, if this was either the Swiss or French Alps
, you can practically hear Maria von Trapp singing about the Sound of Music!
The Strathmore Heights also places you near the vast mountain range of South Africa's Western Cape. Though the luxury villa is still located within a suburban neighborhood in the city, all the hustle and bustle are a fair distance away. Nevertheless, this is the same kind of view where you get to see the earthy ruggedness of the mountains in contrast with the largely white and modern Camps Bay district. The scene looks straight out of a masterpiece painting! And just like in some of the other Cape Town luxury villas on this list, you can also enjoy the view from the private infinity pool here!
Cape Nights Villa
Now, in Cape Nights Villa, you get the best of both worlds! Thanks to its pretty strategic location in Camps Bay, the views up here combine the majesty of the Western Cape's mountains with the soothing scene of the Atlantic Ocean. And add the beautiful homes that make up the area and you've got quite an incredible sight! It isn't just Instagram-worthy! Even master artists might fail to do the view justice in their paintings! Luckily, the villa offers up a spacious balcony—and a rattan swing chair for good measure!—where you can enjoy the view as much as you want.
Beach Villa 1
Like Cape Nights Villa, Beach Villa 1 also combines the mountains and the ocean in its beautiful views. However, gradient waters by the shoreline are closer to this Cape Town luxury rental than the mountain range. You'd easily get lost in its tranquil beauty moreso than get distracted by the mountains. Nevertheless, the entire view is something worth mentioning. It beautifully captures the paradisical nature of the Camps Bay area and the city of Cape Town as a whole. Not to mention the natural beauty that is the Western Cape of South Africa!
One of the very best things about South Africa's Western Cape is its stunning mountain range. Fortunately, you can see these magnificent natural wonders in any of these awesome luxury villas in Cape Town!
