Located above fashionable Camps Bay and designed by a leading South African architect, this pad is made up of a main house with five double bedrooms and a penthouse with two doubles, and can be rented separately or as a whole – one could say it’s big enough for a football team – but that’s what you’re trying to escape
Inside the main house are sleek Philippe Starck-designed furnishings, while outside there's a lush patio, barbecue and pool with jaw-dropping views of Lion's Head Mountain.
Meanwhile, the penthouse has a wraparound balcony with a plunge pool and equally knock-out views – which will be of all the sunburnt peasants fighting for the shade to drown their sorrows after their team inevitably looses.
At £351 per night for the penthouse only, it’s well worth the investment – and that includes maid service, check out Lion’sView.
