This delightful vacation home’s site sets the stage for you: “The echo of waves crashing on the beach, mountain views second-to-none, and the best sunsets South Africa has to offer all come together at Villa Azure in Camps Bay, Cape Town. Step into this serene haven and get ready to relax.” Indeed, if the comments of folks who have stayed at this luxury retreat are any indication, if anything, the site understates its case. Step into Azure and you’ll be blown away by the elegant combination of ultra-modern décor and neutral colors (take a look at the sand-colored marble bath with pure white fixtures) and Moroccan- and Indian- inspired furnishings and artifacts collected by the world travelers who own this palace. Sink into silk velvet couches — or the infinity pool; it’s your choice, and both options are great ones.
Choose from three bedrooms: a master suite holds his-and-hers en-suite bathrooms, Indian antiques, and a private garden through sliding glass doors. A second bedroom opens onto a private garden and includes its own en-suite bathroom and king-sized bed; the third bedroom boasts queen-sized bedding, an en-suite bathroom, and a private courtyard. All of the bedrooms have satellite TV and air conditioning, as well as such pampering extras as heated towel racks. From your open-plan kitchen, with top-of-the-line appliances, entertaining is easy. Serve meals at the fabulous dining table indoors or move to the outdoor living area: it’s equipped with BBQ, loungers, and a fish pond! All this luxury is less than five minutes from beaches, bars, and other nightlife — but you may decide you don’t need to budge a step to enjoy your vacation to the fullest, at the magnificent Villa Azure.
