With its clean lines of white etched against a blue sky, the villa appears to hover like an elegant space ship above perennially popular Camps Bay. Architecturally modernist in style yet cocooned by trees, it is a completely private haven, with sparkling ocean views framed by uncluttered, big-volume spaces – gallery-style cubes that offer a cool retreat from the blue hues and summer heat.
Belgian partners Jan Van Mechelen and Marc Dochez spent almost two years renovating the house-hotel they named The Aven. “We just wanted to build an extra floor; do some painting. But one thing led to another, and by the time we were ready, it was 2020…” The result is that their beautiful boutique hotel is now available as an exclusive-use villa, offering a wonderful opportunity for two or three families to forge stronger ties, or a small group of up to 16 to celebrate a memorable special occasion holiday.
Built as a hotel, The Avenues offers a decadence of space for a villa, with six large en-suite rooms located in a three-storey wing that juts perpendicularly from the living block in layers that suggest you are cantilevered off the plot – plus the expansive two-bedroom owner’s apartment, located above the public living area overlooking the pool. It’s been designed for hotel guests; as such the rooms are huge, elegant and ultra-luxurious – the kind in which you can happily while away an entire day, with amenities including quiet air-conditioning, smart TV, stocked mini-bar, excellent Wifi…. The top-floor Atlantic Deluxe Suite is the grand pick, with a massive terrace and stupendous ocean views. That said, there is not a dud here; the Garden Room and adjoining Garden Suite are a cool and tranquil oasis, opening onto a small well-groomed garden that is a balm on the eye.
The villa comes with an on-site housekeeper who will be as discreet or present as you desire. Off-street parking for 8 vehicles, or let us arrange a couple of vans with or without drivers. A separate chef’s kitchen allows for restaurant-level entertaining. Allow us to arrange private wine tastings alongside lunch. Showcase the best new SA gins, backdropped by that iconic Camps Bay sun set. Call in the services of yoga instructor, or private trainer to greet the dawn from the private pool deck… whatever your interests, we’ll ensure you make the most of The Avenues – because with a setting this gorgeous, why leave home?
