About the property

Lions View

Designed by leading South African architect Greg Wright this luxurious villa perfectly complements its magnificent setting overlooking Camp’s Bay, Lion’s Head and the Twelve Apostles.

Situated in a tranquil tree-lined street Lion’s View is a five-minute stroll from the Beach, shops and restuarants.

Lion’s View is divided into two sections; the five bedroom Main House and the two bedroom Penthouse Apartment. Guests can opt for either or combine them to form an ultra luxurious seven-bedroom villa.

There’s under-floor heating and air-conditioning in selected areas. As you’d expect from a five-star property the house has all the mod-cons including iPod docs, smart TV and complementary WiFi internet.

Plus state of the art security.

About Marie-helene Schaap

I'm originally a Hydrographic Surveyor from the Netherlands but after living in London with my partner (from Rochdale) for a couple of years we decided to escape to South Africa in 2006 to set-up and manage the family hospitality business. We currently own and operate three properties. Lalapanzi Lodge in the Cape Winelands, Skaaphouse in the Cape Winelands and Lion's View in Camp's Bay, South Africa.

We also established our own vineyard here and are a small wine producer in South Africa. Skaap wines. You can try our bubby on arrival!

Marie-helene Schaap purchased this villa in 2006

Why Marie-helene Schaap chose Camps Bay

We'd fallen for the country, especially the Cape Town area where we now live. We love it's Mediterranean climate. It's amazingly delicious food. And even better wines. The people are friendly. The service is generally good. Everywhere you go there are amazing views. You're never far from a beach. And the pound/euro still goes a long way.

What makes this villa unique

The house also has a very relaxing feel. We can just swim, read, listen to music and braai (bbq) in absolute comfort.

Inside the house is compact, simple and elegant.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a family celebration at the house and it was just perfect.

With its 5 bedrooms it was ideal for our family. We each had our own rooms with en-suite bathroom. The living area is large enough for us all to relax either on the couches or outside around the pool. Beds are comfy. We could walk easily to the beach, shops and promenade. Would definitely recommend this villa!
