New! Villa Sea Lion, Bantry Bay and Fresnaye, South Africa.  

A Greg Wright designed architectural masterpiece that has featured in several magazines, Sea Lion is one of Cape Town's exceptional luxury villas. Located in "wind free" Fresnaye, one of Cape Town's most prestigious neighborhoods, Sea Lion sits on the very edge of Lion's Head National Reserve with unparalleled views of the Atlantic Ocean & Robben Island from every single room.

Its 725 square meters of space feature generous amounts of textured granite, warm walnut and luxurious marble which form the neutral backdrop for its vibrant contemporary interiors and its impressive collection of art from across the globe. Superb attention to every aspect of its interior detail ensures that each and every area of the home and its ensuite bedrooms are individually distinct & luxurious. A stunning laser cut steel and glass entrance forms the starting point of a journey into a luxury villa epitomised by quiet interior garden spaces and large picture windows with ocean and mountain views. The views of the Atlantic Ocean & Robben Island from every single room through-out the house are simply unsurpassed and provide stiff competition to the equally dramatic views of Lion's Head from many areas of this luxury villa.

A dramatic floating staircase (or a lift if you prefer) takes you down to a living area covering over 300 square meters. Large sliding doors recess completely to allow the outside to blend in with the inside allowing easy access to the pool as well as the state of the art Braai (barbeque). A unique feature of Sea Lion is that every single bedroom and bathroom enjoys fabulous ocean views. Entertain in style, enjoy an intimate meal at the comfortable breakfast bar, a martini or a gin & tonic at the contemporary bar counter or a formal dinner party for 10 at the stunning solid walnut and copper inlaid dining table. The 'Black & Copper' kitchen boasts top of the range appliances skillfully hidden behind beautiful joinery. Luxury cutlery and dinnerware, La Crueset serving dishes and Riedel wine glasses will allow you to entertain in style. You can also choose to drink or dine on one the many landscaped terraces - with a view of the Atlantic Ocean, Lions Head or both. Flat screen televisions, and top of the line sound systems ensure that every room has a premium viewing and listening experience.

Do we share the villa? click to close
No. You will not share the villa with another party. The villa is exclusively yours. If a larger villa offers a lower bedroom rate category, the villa will remain exclusively yours but the unrented bedrooms will be locked off.
For example, a 5 bedroom villa that offers a 3 bedroom rate will be the exclusive use of the guest but two bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms will be locked off. Capacity is capped at 2 guests per bedroom.
Are we protected from fraud? click to open
Yes. Isle Blue stands behind you throughout your entire vacation. Unlike other companies, each property we offer has been hand picked to ensure that our standards are met. All property managers are vetted and payments are required to be held in escrow. Our primary obligation is to ensure your satisfaction and to have an exceptionally memorable vacation.
Can you explain the reservation process? click to open
Once a reservation request is received, Isle Blue will request a contract from the property manager for your dates of interest. Once the dates are confirmed and contract is received from the property manager, a payment will be required to confirm your reservation.
Once a reservation is confirmed, a concierge will welcome you to the planning stages of your vacation to assist with arrival logistics, rental cars, transfers, and a host of concierge services.
What offerings are included with the concierge service? click to open

Please do not hesitate with any special requests. Our team is here to ensure you dream vacation becomes a grand reality.
Can we arrange an early check in? click to open
Early check in may be possible but is at the sole discretion of the property manager. Early check in permission may not be granted until 24 hours prior to arrival.
Can we arrange a late check out? click to open
A late check out is rarely granted due to the turnover needs of a villa. A late check out may only be granted 24 hours prior to your departure from the property and only when there is no check in scheduled on the day of your check out. If a late check out is urgently needed please contact us.
Are transfers to the property included? click to open
Select villas may include a one way or roundtrip airport transfer while others may provide an escort or meeting point. Arrival logistics will be handled by your dedicated concierge as well as other concierge needs. The property's transfer policy will be listed under the Policies section.
What to expect upon arrival? click to open
In general, a villa orientation will be provided along with a key turnover. During the orientation, information and instructions for the property will be provided. Emergency contact information will be provided. We are available 7 days a week to assist with any urgent needs.
The arrival procedures due vary from villa to villa, select villas may include welcome provisioning while other properties will provide basic arrival information.
What is the cancellation policy? click to open
Since these vacation homes are one of a kind properties, the cancellation policy is strict. We highly recommend considering trip/travel insurance to protect against any unexpected cancellations or issues that may arise.
For more details, please visit Travel Protection
What happens if the property becomes unavailable after I reserve? click to open
In the unlikely event, the rented property becomes unavailable due to a major issue that may affect a guest's experience or a transfer of ownership, Isle Blue will coordinate with the property manager to find an alternate property of equal or superior standard that is subject to the guest's approval. If an alternate property is not acceptable to the guest, the guest will receive a full refund.
Do you accept credit cards (American Express, Mastercard, or Visa)? click to open
Yes, we accept all major credit cards. American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Discover are accepted. Please note that credit card charges may be subject to additional fees. There are no fees with payment by wire transfer or check.
In late 2018, we expect to accept a greater variety of payment methods and currencies via Stripe.
Is housekeeping included? click to open
Housekeeping tends to be a standard among vacation homes but the frequency may vary greatly depending on the property manager’s standards. Most properties will offer daily housekeeping (except Sunday and holidays) while other villas may only provide a mid-week cleaning. Please refer to the Policies section to learn about the housekeeping frequency of the property.
Are towels and linens provided? click to open
Yes. The property will provide bath and pool towels along with linens. Towels and linens will be refreshed as needed.
Are toiletries and tissues provided? click to open
A property may supply an initial supply of soap, shampoo, toilet paper and paper towels but replenishment of supplies once exhausted may be the responsibility of the guest. Each property varies in their handling of toiletries and paper products.
Is a hair dryer available? click to open
A hair dryer is typically available at the property. Upon arrival, please check the bathrooms or closet. Typically, a hair dryer is included in each bathroom.
Is an iron included? click to open

WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING

"Renting a house, as opposed to finding a hotel, was new for us this year and a little overwhelming. Isle Blue made it so easy! From arranging the rental car and getting a driver to and from the airport to promptly answering emails (with sometimes silly questions), we have had a great experience with Isle Blue and plan to use them for our future travels. Thank you Mary! You are the best! "
