Owned by the same family since 1990, The Villa Rosa, a beautiful Victorian mansion at the foot of Lion’s Head oozes charm and warm,welcoming grace, even if we say so ourselves.
It’s hardly a shrinking rose though, with dramatic rosy and white tinged walls, situated in equally warm and wonderful Sea Point.
Wander up the front path through mingled scents of wild jasmine, chives and roses to the rosily stained glass front door. The villa continues its rosy persona within – soft rose pinks are set off with contrasting leafy greens. Some rooms are lit by enormous bay windows and intricate chandeliers. All eight individually decorated rooms are quite different from one another. One thing they do have in common however is that they have the most comfortable beds, duvets and linen, decidedly different chandeliers and gorgeous bathrooms.
The walls continue to fill up with local talent. On a more functional level, all rooms have TV’s (with DSTV satellite TV), telephones, mini-safes, wall heaters, ceiling fans and free wireless internet access.
