Modern architecture and a breathtaking private location with uninterrupted Atlantic Ocean views define Ellerman House’s original exclusive-use accommodation, Villa One. Separate to Ellerman House yet on the same property, Villa One offers all the benefits of being attached to an exclusive small hotel coupled with life’s ultimate luxuries – complete privacy and discreet, highly personalised service. Designed with the discerning luxury traveller in mind, Villa One is ideally suited to families or groups of friends. A compliment to the elegance of the original Ellerman House, Villa One and its sister residence, Villa Two, add a contemporary edge to the hotel’s classic style and refined ambience.
Villa One is the quintessential coastal retreat with an exquisite, sea-view location in Bantry Bay, one of the most sought-after residential suburbs in Cape Town. Sheltered from the prevailing Southeaster wind in summer, it offers spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and the dramatic mountain scenery characteristic of this stretch of the rugged and beautiful Cape Peninsula. With accommodation for up to 10 people, spacious entertainment and relaxation areas and a private infinity pool, the villa epitomises the glamorous beach lifestyle for which Cape Town has become world famous.
Indigenous gardens and flowing water welcome guests to the entrance of Villa One with its breathtaking ocean views. The Ellerman House Spa and two deluxe spa bedrooms are located on this floor, with Villa One on the upper two levels accessed either by access controlled lift or staircase.
Level two (middle floor):
Sophisticated minimalist décor and a stunning collection of original art are key characteristics of the living areas, including a study, TV lounge, dining room and entertainment area. The contemporary, stainless- steel kitchen has a separate scullery and a well-stocked cold room. A personal chef is on call to create breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. The emphasis is on fresh, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Any dietary needs or restrictions, food allergies or children’s meals can be catered for by the chef.
The top floor has a reading room and three bedrooms, each with a spacious bathroom featuring infinity mirrors. The master bedroom (Aqua) has ocean views from the bedroom and bathroom. The second bedroom (Lilac) also has ocean views and a striking Balinese-style bathroom. The third bedroom (Yellow) faces the Twelve Apostles mountain range and is designed as a twin room with two single beds (all the rooms can be converted into king or twin beds on request). The reading room has a single divan for relaxing and enjoying a selection of books and magazines. This room can be converted into a single bedroom if need be.
