    Save to favouritesPrintMailAn African VillaYou may be forgiven for thinking that some clever illusion has been played out when entering the front gate of this friendly guesthouse, only 7 blocks from the city centre. The outside seems conventional enough: a terrace of charming 19th-century houses featuring original wooden balconies and wrought-iron railings; but open the door and you’re catapulted into a 21st-century urban safari. The interior yields spaces on a grand scale, with décor as up-to-date as this morning’s news. Some describe the design as 'African-Scandinavian'; others, 'African-Zen'. The owners have interlinked 3 'grand old Victorian ladies' to create 11 [r:SA017:guest rooms] and a disarmingly cosy environment. The chic African style features classy warm colours with splashes of tribal red, and an eclectic mix of weird and wonderful artefacts, many of which are for sale. In summer a tranquil courtyard with a rectangular plunge pool, tables and loungers invites you to soak up the sun after a morning’s sightseeing. The soothing atmosphere continues indoors to a library, a dining room and lounge, all with fireplaces awaiting the crackle of a winter blaze: the perfect setting for your complimentary sherry or port.
