We just received photos of a beautiful guest Villa in Camps Bay, Cape Town. Sent by Margot, one of our inspired readers, the photos of this residential structure show us how a home can benefit from not only great architecture and interior design, but also a stunning location that only adds charm to the framing windows. Rising tall above the neighborhood, this residence displays a playful white facade adorned with timber features done by a small local company. Welcoming guests with four bedrooms and a surprising penthouse area, this home provides many enjoyable moments in the company of an open floor plan flooded with natural light. The 2 bedroom penthouse was designed and built as a separate house that can be used independently – an elevator offers direct access from one of the two garages and frosted glass partitions can be used to maintain the privacy.

By combining imported Italian bar stools, cupboards and trend mosaic for the bathrooms with custom made and locally resourced furniture, the interiors of this home seem to have been created as an oasis of comfort. Special features like the wall-mounted fish tank with Malawian fish give the home a special atmosphere – it lights up at night and is visible from the staircase leading to the penthouse and from the penthouse lounge. Apart from the 6 en-suite bedrooms, the home also offers other luxurious facilities like two pools, a jacuzzi, a sauna and a tropical garden. The owners share their opinions about their splendid guest house: “we love the space, great light and clean lines combined with the warm feel of our home.”
