VILLA WHITE RABBIT
White Rabbit is located in sought-after Bantry Bay, which is protected from the summer South-Easter wind by the slopes of Lion’s Head. Less windy and touristy than Camps Bay and just as central as Sea Point, the villa is a 5-minute drive to the beach and the city centre. Recently renovated in June 2019, the four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two entertainment areas, and a sauna are spaciously spread over two levels. The top level of the villa is reserved for the property owner’s private use and is not accessible to guests. Outside, a generous secluded garden offers outdoor entertainment areas and a large swimming pool. The peaceful setting has dramatic views over the scenic coastline and Robben Island, making it perfect for a relaxing holiday getaway with friends and family.

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront
From the sophisticated Zeitz MOCAA art museum and Silo Hotel to urban street performers and food markets, the waterfront caters to every taste.
Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden
Kirstenbosch is home to indigenous flora, conservatories, sculptures, sunset concerts, and hiking trails in one of the most stunning settings imaginable.
The villa is located in the cul-de-sac of Ocean View Drive, giving you direct access to a network of trails on the slopes of Lion’s Head. Clifton and Camps Bay beaches are a short drive by car.
It’s no surprise that the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is the most visited attraction in Cape Town. The working harbour offers over 350 retail outlets; over 80 eateries, restaurants and bars; a number of luxury hotels and spas; food and local handcraft markets, plus plenty of activities such as Robben Island, sunset cruises, and the Two Oceans aquarium.
Cape Town boasts many high-end restaurants in different locations from the city’s CBD, just 5km away, to more scenic outdoor locations dotted around the peninsula. For fine dining, we recommend La Colombe in Constantia or FYN in the city centre, both of which need to be booked in advance. The Chef’s Warehouse restaurants, such as Beau Constantia, Maison and Thali, offer excellent value meals served as sharing plates with “tapas for two”.
We recommend hiring a car to make the most of your scenic surroundings. Cape Town’s CBD is about a 5-minute drive and the V&A Waterfront is about 10 minutes.
The Clifton beaches are just around the corner – a 5-minute drive – while the glamorous Camps Bay strip with all its restaurants and bars is about 7 minutes by car.
Located in a quiet residential area, the villa is a 20-minute walk to the hustle and bustle of Sea Point with its shops, restaurants and seafront promenade. There is also a MyCiTi bus station near the house which is air-conditioned and affordable. Card passes can be purchased for R35 from MyCiTi station kiosks and local retailers.
Uber operates in Cape Town and surrounding areas with well-priced trips – around R40 to the city centre.

The secluded garden has a Weber Grill and an alfresco dining area on the patio, making it perfect for a BBQ. The generous outdoor space also has a large swimming pool, sun loungers for sunbathing, and more outdoor couches.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms connected by a comfortable central lounge area ideal for watching TV. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, plenty of cupboard space and sea views. The other two bedrooms have views over the ocean, while the third bedroom is more tucked away with limited sea views. There are two more large family bathrooms on this level.
Guests have access to the bottom two floors of this large villa. Access is via outdoor stairs, which is not wheelchair friendly and may not be suitable for people who have problems walking.
