Whatever excuse you need to make, do it for Camps Bay. This exclusive beach makes you feel like an A-lister, all you need is a cocktail and an extravagant sun hat to show people you mean business. Camps Bay is home to the stars and (lots of sun). It's about time someone mixed you a strawberry something to make you feel like royalty.
Atlantic House is a 5-star private villa boutiquey enough to compete with Leo DiCaprio’s house next door, while warm and welcoming enough to make you feel at home. And now let's talk bang for buck: six fully en-suite bedrooms, sauna, pool, bar, climate control, flat-screen TVs, heated towel railings, wifi, entertainment centre... mod-con mania basically.
The house is yours. Your time your own. Your activity schedule as you wish. Beside the obvious day at the beach and ice cream, take a cruise down the promenade as you stop by all the bars for finger food and margaritas as you go.
Come evening, the Camps Bay strip lights up with streetside eateries and drinkeries vying for your trade. The Camps Bay Theatre features delightfully leftfield comedies and musicals if the hustle and bustle is not enough of a show for you.
Keep an eye out for events online in the city. You'll find something for everyone all the time. Locals can barely keep up. On the tourist side of things, you are well-positioned for the V&A Waterfront, Cape Peninsula, Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch and Constantia.
Atlantic House will give you a high-end yet homely stay. It's a little (big) treat for yourself and the people you share it with, so take the days easy, make use of the bar and enjoy Cape Town from your private pool before you take on the city and its nightlife.
Take advantage of the beach - surfing, swimming, shark cage diving and boat trips.
Go up to table mountain for a full view of the city and take the city on at night for amazing food and wine at restaurants all through town.
Make sure to keep an eye out for events happening online, you might catch a special market or parade.
