Luxury Villas

Selection of luxurious villas from the sublimely luxurious, to family friendly to seaside stunners

Overview

We offer luxury villas throughout South Africa, as well as a select few in Malawi & Mozambique. As in Cape Town, they range from the sublimely luxurious, to family friendly to seaside retreats.

Family Friendly

These villas, cottages or two-bedroom suites are spacious and comfortable rather than architectural icons. The key factor is that your family will feel relaxed here. These are not modest ‘self-catering apartments” either. They offer a home away from home – with the level of luxury that suits your family. Options range from 2 to 4 bedrooms, ideal for larger family groups. Or two families travelling together.

Examples include Hawksmoor House, Belvidere Manor, Hog Hollow Villa, Three Trees Lodge at Spionkop

Examples include La Residence Villas, Morukuru Ocean House, Bushmans Kloof Koro Lodge or Delaire Graaff

Romantic Retreats

These are romantic villas designed for couples celebrating a special occasion. it’s the sense of romance and ambience which sets them apart – rather than the size.

Seaside Living

These villas are right at the ocean for that carefree coastal vibe. They’re right on the ocean so that you don’t need to get into your car to enjoy the beach. Some are in South Africa. But we’ve also included some options in Mozambique and Malawi.

Examples include the Villas at the Plettenberg, Villa, Morukuru Beach Lodge, Santorini, Machangulo Beach Lodge and the Villa at Kaya Mawa in Malawi

Mr Chris Day, UK - Peter

"Peter couldn’t have been more helpful, and his suggestions were all relevant and useful to us. " Mr Chris Day, UK

Ginny made excellent suggestions

"Ginny made excellent suggestions for our holiday ensuring we had a good variety of things to do which suited the whole family. " Mrs Mary Creayen, UK

Incredibly well organised

"Everything was incredibly well organised and left nothing wanting. We did not see all of the animals that we had hoped for but the experience we had was so much more than that. Hopefully we will return to Africa one day – maybe Namibia / Botswana next time. Thank you so much for organising everything for us it is very much appreciated. " Mr James Coleman

Couldn’t have been happier…

"Cedarberg and specifically our specialist Peter, have been excellent. Really communicative and just very on the ball. From the planning and payment, all the way through to arriving back home. The transfers, hotels, everything was spot on. Couldn’t have been happier with how our honeymoon went. " Mr Clark Hoy, UK

Rwanda was inspiring

"My wife and I approached Cederberg requesting a draft itinerary and recommendations for a visit to Rwanda. We received prompt, well-informed assistance, and a final itinerary which was absolutely perfect. Our tour of the country was well-structured in terms of acclimatisation, pace and variety. On the second last day of our visit, we met up with another group who had opted for a different tour agency, and were exhausted by the disproportionate amount of time spent on the road rather than enjoying the delights of their respective destinations. " Mr David, USA

A quite outstanding holiday

"We have just returned from a quite outstanding holiday. Milandi listened to what we wanted and organised it perfectly. The standard of the whole trip was even better than we expected and the itinerary was interesting, enjoyable, relaxing and fun in exactly the right proportions. " Mr Allan Cole
