Luxury Villas

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

Overview

We offer luxury villas in 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.

Sublime Luxury Villas

These are South Africa’s stand-out villas with exceptional locations, stunning architecture, stylish interiors and immaculate finishes. (There’s a separate page all about Safari Houses in the bush…

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.

Examples include Babylonstoren, Kaya Mawa in Malawi or the Cottages at Mosaic Lodge

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

Extremely helpful

"Peter was extremely helpful. He answered any questions and concerns I had really quickly. Cedarberg website is great with lots of tips. I thought the booking information and itinerary were outstanding and all the pre holiday information made us feel really looked after. " Mrs Lottie Murphy, UK

I would only want to book through Cedarberg

"Thank you so much for booking this experience for us, Mari. Everything was so well organized and went so smoothly, from car rental and driving and hotel directions, to lodge details, inclusions, exclusions, etc. The link you gave us with all the details on the locations we were going to as well as the detailed itinerary and pre-departure information was very helpful. We’re grateful for your efforts and for making this an outstanding experience for us. I have already sent your details to friends in case they’re interested in booking a trip of their own, and now that Tom has seen the beauty of Africa I know I won’t have to convince him to head back there again. I’m dreaming of safari in Namibia next time, and I would only want to book it through Cedarberg. " Mrs Michelle B

1st class

"We have had Sonja with Cedarberg plan our trips for years and they have all been excellent. The properties she has chosen for us have all been 1st class and exactly what we wanted. Many were a giant puzzle of flights, drivers and lodging reservations and they all fit together perfectly. " Mrs Marianna Willis

Most amazing holiday in SA

"Thank you for the most amazing holiday in South Africa. The three lodges were all selected with great care and each had a different atmosphere. All transfers worked entirely smoothly and we were even met on arrival at Johannesburg airport to be escorted the few yards to the airport hotel! Cedarberg really came into their own when BA messed up theoutgoing flight (twice) and Ginny spent her entire Bank Holiday weekend sorting it out for us. " Mr Mike Ricks, UK

You delivered us a near perfect experience

"We had a wonderful trip largely thanks Cedarberg Travel. THANK YOU!! Thank you again Mari. We had a trip packed with fun, laughter, wildlife and bucket showers, all at a relaxed pace which made us all believe we had a real holiday, even if it started at 5.am every morning! I believe that you gave us 3 wonderful lodges ( arguably best we have visited in the African continent all with their special touch and ambiance, thank you.) Once again, another “Mari masterpiece”. You delivered us a near perfect experience, thank you again Mari. " Mr Dennis Lee

Delivered the goods

"Cedarberg took on board what we wanted and delivered the goods!! Accommodation everywhere was fantastic we couldn’t have asked for any more! Preferred safari at madikwe as saw loads more because the rangers could go off road, would definitely look at this type of safari next time. " Mr Eastwood, UK
