If you’re looking for serviced apartments in Cape Town, try Icon Villas. A collection of ‘handpicked and gorgeous’ sole-use residences located in the city’s most glamorous suburbs, all offering space and luxury, with the best villa concierge services in town. Of these, our favourite is the high-altitude Ellerman Villa. With multiple teak terraces, floor-to-ceiling windows, its own infinity pool, assorted lounges, and a master bedroom affording showstopper views across the Atlantic, you’d be forgiven for imagining yourself in some kind of glorious IMAX reality show. Every room features South Africa’s most sought-after artists, and the entire house is wired to the max, making just about anything-even the curtains-jump at the touch of a button. Included in the rate (which scales up or down according to the number of rooms you occupy) are your private butler and chef, use of the Ellerman Spa, most of your drinks, breakfast and airport transfers. If, however, you’d prefer to wake up on the beach, then Icon Villas has an option for that, there is gorgeously unpretentious Villa Blanc, another favourite, or stylish Llundudno Beach Villa. Or take a look at Villa Yvette, Gorge Villa, Bridge House, and many more.
