Private Villa rentals – your choice of post-pandemic accommodation

As travel corridors start to reopen and vaccination programmes turn inspirational travel dreams into something much more tangible, thoughts also turn to accommodation choices abroad. Covid has certainly changed the way we think about travel, not only about far-flung flights but also about new priorities when it comes to where to stay – with luxury private rental villas set to top the list for many discerning travellers, both in Cape Town and around the world. Here are some compelling reasons why private villa rentals should be your choice of post-pandemic accommodation.

Complete privacy and comfort

Safety will present a key issue for travellers post-pandemic, with privacy topping the list of requirements for many – and it doesn’t get much more private than having your own villa on holiday. You won’t have to worry about social distancing or wearing masks indoors, being too close to other guests at check-in or at the restaurant, or generally feeling restricted in your movement. And of course, luxury villas also have strict cleaning and hygiene regulations in place – Levalux’s cleaning protocols meet the guidelines set by the World Travel & Tourism Council, ensuring complete peace of mind.

Freedom and exclusivity

In a private villa, you are the master of the house. Want to have breakfast at 2pm? No problem. Invite friends round to watch a movie? You got it. Walk around the kitchen in your swimwear? But of course. Jump into the pool at 2am? No one’s watching. Taking full advantage of your beautiful surroundings without having to be considerate of other guests or being worried about bumping into someone else is one of the main advantages of staying in private accommodation.


Space, glorious space

LOT Wine Estate

Post-lockdown, the desire to roam free in wide-open spaces has become the ultimate luxury for many. Our open-plan Cape Town villas feel like a (very luxurious) home-away-from home and offer space inside and out. Located in exclusive neighborhoods, they come with big kitchens and living rooms, and ample outdoor space for panoramic sundowners and al fresco dining. And when it comes to sleeping arrangements you’ll be spoilt for choice, with each property featuring between four and seven large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Which brings us straight onto our next point…

Perfect for family and group stays

As every parent knows, even the most generous hotel rooms tend to be on the small size, with a distinct lack of living and outdoor space for energetic kids to run wild. Throw in your parents or parents-in-law and it is like lockdown all over again. And if you’re travelling with friends, a hotel won’t always give you adequate space for socializing or chatting deep into the night. In a private villa on the other hand, you’ll be able to cherish real quality time together, while also having the space to retreat and enjoy some ‘me time’ when needed.

Get active in the morning with a game of tennis, enjoy ‘’champagne breakfast’’ prepared by your private chef, spend your afternoon water skiing or fishing.

Unparalleled facilities

Our villas offer the ultimate luxury and comfort, with facilities that will make you feel like you’ve taken over the plush home of a celebrity. From an infinity pool (complete with glorious sea views), fully equipped kitchen, Weber BBQ, and the latest high-tech gadgets to (in certain villas) a Jacuzzi, fireplace, private gym, night club, pool table, wine cellar and in-house cinema, your villa will be your playground for the duration of your stay.


Bespoke services

Our villas offer the kind of service and amenities you’d expect in a five-star hotel, from pool and beach towels to a welcome gift basket and deluxe continental breakfast – but we then go the extra mile to ensure a highly personalized stay. Whether you are after the convenience of having a personal chauffeur at your disposal, wish to book a massage in the comfort of your room, want to have a Pilates session on the terrace with a personal trainer, feel like enjoying a wine tasting with a renowned sommelier, or South African-inspired dinner cooked by a private chef – the list of possibilities is sheer endless.

Dedicated staff

Time is precious, especially on holiday, so you want to make sure that you don’t have to worry about a thing and can simply focus on relaxing. This is where our dedicated staff comes in, from me, Bibiana (who casts a critical eye on every single detail!) to, in some villas, a live-in house manager, or a private chef you can hire on request. Every staff member brings passion and commitment to guest service to their role. Professional, super friendly, fun, and with a certain South African ‘ubuntu’ spirit, they’ll be your go-to people – and might well become friends in the process.

Pure luxury that is excellent value for money

Cape Town villas offer the height of luxury, in the city’s most exclusive locations, at very reasonable rates – you can thank the weak Rand for it, which allows holidaymakers from destinations such as the UK, the US and the EU to live like a king or queen on holiday in the Mother City.
