“Night and Day, you are the One” Cole Porter wrote a song about a yearning, about something that gets under your skin. Villa 44 is an astounding piece of architectural art overlooking the mountains and beaches of Llandudno and a boundless Atlantic Ocean. Just 5 minutes drive from Camps Bay and Hout Bay, Llandudno is well connected to top restaurants and the stunning Llandudno, Camps Bay, Clifton and Hout Bay beaches.
The villa is a work of Art that will enthrall you with its heart of looming granite boulders, then beguile you with the top modern South African art in every room. This is a home that plays artfully with the brilliant light of day and the dark velvet of the night sky…and the shadows of caves that fall in between.
The first three floors evoke the image of a blazing sun on bright white sand. On the first level the trained butler will greet you upon your arrival, upstairs a casual lounge offers every modern convenience from DVD to ADSL to iPOD dock. This technological savvy extends throughout the Villa – all rooms have climate control, surround sound and automated blinds. The next two bedrooms (both with en suite bathrooms) perfectly host four guests or teens in the family. The collector’s item art in these rooms is playful and fun. All these cool white bedrooms lead onto a decked balcony overlooking the ocean below.
Step inside the funicular and head one floor up. Take a breath as you step out – you’ll need it to marvel at the vista of open plan dining area and lounge with statuesque modern sculptures and a crisp white kitchen behind. A glass wall slides out to an expansive deck curving around a white granite boulder built into the home. (Throughout, the villa is built around the monolithic granite boulders that are so much a part of Llandudno’s landscape). Outside hot pink loungers invite you to rest beneath Bedouin tents before you take a dip in the heated plunge pool, delight in its underwater surround sound or heat up later at the Bodum fireplace.
Follow a mysterious pathway through giant boulders to a walkway and upstairs or take the funicular to yet another level. Here you will find the enticing pure white Master Bedroom. Bamboo flooring leads you through the bedroom to another balcony deck, then looking back into the room, the luxurious King-sized bed has a lavish white rug at its foot, suspended chrome Cocoon fireplace and edgy concrete behind. Enjoy pristine white His and Hers shower and basin sets as well as a walk in dressing area and table. Take the Bamboo stairs or the funicular up to the next two levels.
Here the villa takes you up into the jet black night sky. A grey lounge draws you into an edgy black bar area made of black granite and dark wood, to celebrate a decadent night with friends. Stroll outside to a large Bodum furnace and mezmerizing Japanese plunge pool leading onto a cave hidden between the rocks.
Deep in the night sky is the final Guest Bedroom decorated in inky black tones, with an alluring painting by Kelly John Gough over the Queen Bed, en suite bathroom, walk in closet and a stunning view of the ocean. Outside is a roof deck with surround sound with a view of the ocean and mountains set to draw guests out from the beauty within.
All bedrooms have wall-to-wall views of the ocean, bamboo floors, doors opening out onto balconies overlooking the sea, climate control and automated blinds. The funicular services every floor, making it convenient even for older guests.
Now that’s a meeting of beauty and convenience sure to get under your skin.
