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.
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

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.

Very helpful discussions"Very helpful discussions beforehand to give us lots of options. The personalised website was really good. The pre-holiday booklet was really useful as well. " Mrs Rachel O'Connell, UK
A varied and fantastic holiday that we will never forget"Milandi interpreted all our needs perfectly and the tailor-made holiday was way beyond our expectations. As a first time visitor to South Africa, we were quite apprehensive about safety, but all the places chosen for us to stay in were comfortable and hospitable. " Mr Andrew Thompson
Fabulous time"I can only say we had a fabulous time!!! The organisation from your side was great. Everyone turned up on time and everything was organised as planned. I have to say we were very encouraged about how well though of Cedarberg were with the travel providers and accordingly, we were extremely well looked after. Do thank Gloria for all her help in South Africa, and particular thanks to you and the Cedarberg staff in London for organizing such a great trip – our third with you! " Dolman & Kerr Family
