Set on the slopes below Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles in a quiet enclave of Camps Bay, the stylish La Baia is a magnificent retreat designed for luxurious holiday living.
Spacious, stylish living spaces and all-embracing views give this contemporary seaside villa an elegant appeal. Designed to maximise comfort while maintaining an element of sophistication, this deluxe six-bedroomed villa is tucked away in a quiet road in Upper Camps Bay, just moments away from the bustling beachfront. Free-flowing spaces, beautiful décor with a distinctly African feel, and two wooden wrap-around decks with 180˚ panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean make this villa a one-of-a-kind gem.
The villa is spread over three levels, all of which have wooden decks looking out over the ocean. The first level can be reached from the double garage by elevator that opens onto a wooden sun deck with loungers. This level of the abode has a private gym with state-of-the-art equipment, including a cross trainer, a reclining bike, a treadmill, mats, and weights. There is also a small spa with a sauna, massage bed, shower, and toilet next to the gym.
Opposite the fitness room on the same level is a self-contained studio apartment that is ideal for guests looking for extra privacy. The studio has a separate entrance and features open plan living and dining spaces, a fully-equipped kitchenette with a dishwasher, and a bedroom with a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom. The lounge opens onto a quiet balcony with a table and chairs and lovely sea views.
The first floor of the villa features beautifully appointed and elegantly furnished living and dining areas with plush décor in natural hues. It has a rustic 12-seater dining table and chairs, and a large, open-plan kitchen with a central cooking island and top-of-the-range appliances. The kitchen is an entertainer’s dream with a conventional and steam oven, a water cooker, a wine fridge, and a double fridge with a filtered still and sparkling water dispenser. A separate scullery-cum-pantry just off the kitchen has an extra fridge.
The living and dining areas open onto a large wraparound wooden deck with a solar-heated swimming pool, sun loungers, hammocks, and an outdoor lounge with an indoor/outdoor fireplace. The deck boasts spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and Lion’s Head and is the perfect spot for late afternoon sundowners.
The second level of the villa is home to the master bedroom and four guest bedrooms, all of which are en-suite and have lovely ocean or mountain views. The luxurious master bedroom has a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with a large oval bathtub in creamy stone and a deluxe rain shower. It opens onto a wraparound wooden deck that offers breathtaking views of the ocean. The other four guest bedrooms have king or twin beds, en-suite bathrooms with rain showers, and access to either the deck, cosy courtyards, or pretty gardens. All the bedrooms have built-in cupboards and beautiful ocean or mountain views.
This floor of the villa also has a small communal lounge area-cum-study with comfortable furnishings that opens onto the second-floor deck and a laundry room. There is also a protected barbecue area with a large gas-and-wood barbecue, a 12-seater outdoor dining table, and an outdoor kitchen with a sink, fridge, and crockery and cutlery for hassle-free outdoor entertaining. A huge stock of wood can be found next to the entertainment area, as well as an outdoor courtyard for the laundry room.
La Baia is a SMART house with state-of-the-art technology to ensure every need is taken care of. It is fully secure, has air-conditioning and heating throughout, and has a double garage with secure off-street parking for three cars.
The buzzing beach bars and chic cafés on the palm-lined beachfront are a short drive away, as well as the city centre and the world-renowned V&A Waterfront.
