One of the most scenic, vibrant and attractive neighbourhoods in Cape Town is situated along the city's western side. Lovely villas, gorgeous apartments and beautiful houses hug the slopes of Signal Hill, sloping down all the way to the sea.
This is Sea Point, one of the Cape Town's most popular areas due to the lively vibe created by shops, cafés and restaurants as well as the stunning promenade – a beautiful walkway along the coastline right next to the ocean, a daily outing for joggers, friends, those doing yoga on the grass facing the ocean or dog walkers and office workers taking a scenic break.
With a mixture of sophistication as well as old-world charm, Sea Point has something for everyone – whether you want to sip cocktails while watching the sun go down, have high tea in a beautiful old hotel or splash around in your private pool in your sumptuous villa.
Luxury accommodation in Sea Point
There is quite a range of rental properties available in Sea Point. From lavish beach villas overlooking the ocean to intimate cottages, arty penthouse suites with 180-degree sea views and very secure apartments with private access.
Whether you are looking for a convenient lock-up-and-go or a more contemporary holiday apartment with a swimming pool, perhaps a Jacuzzi, garden and of course – great sea views – Sea Point has these in spades.
Apart from stunning apartments facing the ocean and right across from the promenade, there are also gorgeous villas higher up against the mountain. These offer elevation as well as more privacy and make terrific holiday homes.
Self-catering holiday homes closer to the mountain and private hiking trails are also available.

There are so many activities for children, from the public playing areas to the adventure playground below the Green Point Lighthouse where there are a jungle gym and a train ride as well as a maze. Close by is also the Green Point Urban Park and you will find a pedestrian route going here from the lighthouse.
