Best Cape Town Villas for Families – Planning Your December Holidays

It’s hard to believe that the December holidays are just months away, as many people begin planning the best way to end their years off in style. If you are starting to think about where to stay for your holiday, we’ve put together a handy guide on choosing just the right Cape Town villas for families, fun times and festivities.

Spring is quickly shifting into summer here in the Cape, bringing plenty of that warm weather that makes the city such a popular destination for domestic and international travel alike. Once schools finish up for the year, leave has been set, final travel plans made and the good times can finally begin.

First things first though – where is the best place for you and your family to enjoy a terrific Cape Town holiday experience?

Where to Stay on Family Holidays in Cape Town

From the glitzy beaches of Camps Bay all the way to the peaceful, warm waters of the False Bay coastline, and of course plenty of areas in between too, there is certainly no shortage of ideas when choosing where to stay.

Some areas remain extremely busy due to their range of attractions and proximity to the City Centre, but you would be amazed at how many areas have yet to be ‘discovered’ by the masses. If you’re looking for something truly special this year, here are some ideas to get you started…

1. Atlantic Seaboard

This area is ideal for those who like the finer things in life, boasting a number of stylish villas to suit every taste. Suburbs along this coastline include Camps Bay, as well as the Waterfront, Green Point, Sea Point, Bantry Bay, Clifton and Llandudno.

One of our many bespoke villas in this area is Villa Belmondo in Camps Bay, which sleeps up to 10 guests. Top features include a large swimming pool, garden and deck area along with entertainment areas, fully equipped, modern kitchen and plenty more besides.

2. Southern Suburbs

The southern suburbs comprise an area spanning from the City Centre to the False Bay coastline, with suburbs such as Newlands, Constantia and Claremont among others. The historic Constantia Wine Route is found in this area, along with attractions such as Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Newlands Forest.

The Old Winery is one of our featured villas in the Constantia Valley, boasting a home-style property with much to offer guests. This property sleeps up to 10 guests in a beautifully restored building that was once a working winery. Key features include a large one acre garden, swimming pool, elegant furnishings and a host of facilities to ensure a comfortable stay.

3. False Bay

The False Bay coastline lies on the warmer Indian Ocean, including the beach suburbs of Muizenberg, Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay, Simons Town, Noordhoek and Kommetjie. Beaches here are popular for swimming and surfing, while the atmosphere it perpetually in holiday-mode.

Our featured villa White Sands is a perfect example of holidays in this part of Cape Town, sleeping up to eight guests in a laid-back yet stylish beach house. A swimming pool, garden, various entertaining areas and top-notch facilities are just the start – access to Kommetjie beach is mere minutes away too.

These family friendly Cape Town villas each offer a different perspective of the Mother City, with different views, areas and styles. But one thing that they all have in common is plenty of space that makes them perfect for a memorable family holiday.

Remember to book as early as possible to ensure that you are able to get your preferred Cape Town family accommodation while it’s still available!
