Rockwell Penthouse

De Waterkant (Cape Town) max 8 Persons


A stylish New York loft-style penthouse, with almost 360° degree views: from the Waterfront and its working harbour to the iconic sandstone bulk of Table Mountain, there can be no doubt you are in the heart of one of the world’s most beautiful cities.

Villa Rockwell offers a glamorous yet serene retreat from the vibrant streets below, located right in the trendy De Waterkant precinct. Enter the double-volume living space and be prepared for a few seconds of awed silence: the views, with wrap-around floor to ceiling windows, really are stunning; the light and sense of space liberating, the décor very stylish.

The living space, fully air-conditioned, comprises an open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen. The lounge has a large television with DVD VCR. The dining table, featuring 12 Louis Ghost Chairs (designed by Philippe Starck) in a subtle array of shades, seats 14. The kitchen, open-plan to the dining room and, beyond, the lounge, is at the ‘head’ of the room, and invites showmanship cooking. All the usual quality mod-cons apply.

Leading off this is the main bedroom with king-sized bed and open-plan en-suite bathroom with rain-shower over large designer bath. Also a guest toilet and a guest en-suite bedroom with large shower. Up a flight of stairs to the mezzanine level with study/playroom/living area with TV/DVD/VCR. Off this are two spacious en-suite bedrooms, each with queen-size bed, and built-in cupboards. The en-suite bathrooms feature tub or separate shower and are well-equipped, featuring tip-top fittings and finishes. All rooms are air-conditioned and fitted with quality appliances including broadband internet. Additionally the block offers state-of-the-art security and the convenience of direct underground parking, and a gym, lap pool, restaurants and deli on-site.

Take a stroll through its cobbled streets, past chi-chi pavement cafes, the city’s best decor outlets, top restaurants and great nightlife options – all set against the charming backdrop of Cape Malay-influenced architecture. All the city centre’s top attractions – the Castle, Slave Lodge, Greenmarket Square, South African National Gallery and Company Gardens – are within walking distance; the Waterfront is a few minute’s drive away. After a day exploring, what can be more perfect than to retreat to your glamorous penthouse, elevated high above the hubbub, and contemplate whether to head out or stay in as the skyline becomes a silhouette, and the city lights start to twinkle.
