Limewood Lodge

Cape Town, South Africa
Among the Vineyards of the Western Cape

This striking home just outside of Cape Town is a fine example of the region's famous Cape Dutch architecture. This traditional style is found mostly in the Western Cape of South Africa and dates back to the 17th century. It's known for its ornate, rounded gables that hark back to the streets and canals of Amsterdam, as well as for its whitewashed walls, thatched roofing, large wooden sash windows, and green detailing. 

Limewood Lodge has been repainted in a soft terracotta, rather than the traditional white, but it retains other original features. Updated by Cape Town-based designer Gregory Mellor in his signature understated and elegant style, interiors are gentle creams and browns, with a recurring green theme, most notably in the elegant country-style kitchen and the shimmering ceramic tiles that highlight the walls of the bathrooms. Terracotta tiles found underfoot, combined with thick walls, make the house remarkably cool in the summertime.

Located in the Constantia Valley, known as Cape Town's Vineyard, the house has the secluded feel of a country estate, and is surrounded in large, well-established grounds filled with mature trees, hibiscus and hydrangeas. However, it is only a few minutes' walk from Constantia Village's shopping center and has easy access to the freeway. 

Bring home the spoils of your wine tours to enjoy in front of an open fire, scented by musky, aromatic Kameeldoring wood, or open the large double doors and lounge in the enclosed pool area.

This is a remarkable villa for rent in South Africa. With three suites and a loft, it sleeps up to eight guests, making it a great space for families.


ADDITIONAL FEATURES

The house is fully serviced by regular staff: fireplaces are stacked and prepared; pool loungers are set out with swimming towels; and all laundry services are done on the premises. While water restrictions remain in place, the water from the property’s borehole ensures an uninterrupted supply. The swimming pool has a net, and the home is child friendly. A car is recommended, but there is reliable Uber service as well.


AROUND

Constantia is nestled beneath Table Mountain National Park and is the oldest wine-producing region in the southern hemisphere, dating back as far as 1685. The Constantia Wine Route is a must see, and these estates are all within easy reach of the house: Groot Constantia, Constantia Neek, Constantia Glen, Silvermist, Steenberg Vineyards, Constantia Uitisg, Klein Constantia, Eagles Nest, Beau Constantia, Buitenverwachting and Constantia Royale.

The house makes a great base for a visit to Cape Town. It's only 20 minutes from the Victoria & Albert Waterfront, a bustling harbor filled with stores, restaurants, and other attractions like the recently-opened Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, which hosts the world’s largest collection of contemporary art from Africa.

It's also only 500 meters from Constantia Village itself, which has a host of amenities, plus a recommended restaurant called Tash. The region offers great opportunities for hiking and biking, and there are beautiful trails within a 10-minute drive of the Lodge. The beaches at Llandudno, Clifton or Camps Bay are all within a 20-30 minute drive. Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are also easy day trips.
