What makes a villa luxurious? The amount of space? The elegant decor? Though all of these are important in their own right, a private pool has become a benchmark of a luxury villa. Especially if it's located in a city like Cape Town. In a place known for its bright sunshine, natural wonders, and lively energy, a gorgeus villa with a private pool is like the ultimate luxury. And from these high-class homes in Cape Town
, the pools are as luxurious as ever. You'd never want to leave any of these places!
White Cliffs Penthouse
It's not surprising that the White Cliffs Penthouse made it onto this list of the best private pool among the many luxury villas in Cape Town. Just look at it! This fabulous stretch of water overlooking the glittering seas is nothing short of amazing. The small dark blue tiles give it a more natural vibe; as if it's some separate cove from the vast expanse of seawater down below. And since there's no shade above it, you can swim underneath the bright South African sun until you're all shriveled up like a prune. Sounds awesome, doesn't it?
This relatively hidden Anella 2 villa in the Camps Bay area is a tropical paradise. Surrounded by tall trees with the beautiful sea on the horizon, it's easy to forget the rest of the world when you spend even just a day here. You barely have to go to the beach too! The private infinity pool on the estate is more than enough to keep you satisfied. It's wide and spacious and gets as much sunshine as the white sandy shoreline down below. The surrounding forested area makes you feel like you're taking a dip in a swimming hole somewhere on an exotic safari in South Africa!
If you thought that the infinity pool in the Anella 2 Villa was hidden, wait until you see the one in Picasso Villa. Located in the same neighborhood in Cape Town
, Camps Bay, the trees practically shroud the private pool in mystery. Only those lucky enough to rent this gorgeous estate can know its luxurious secrets. And when you do go for a swim here, all you'll see are the lush greeneries that surround the villa. No seaside views unlike some of the other pools on this list but at least you get to soak in silence and serenity!
Beach Villa 1
Now, if you prefer a private pool that's more out in the open, look no further than this bright pool in Beach Villa. Situated on the corner of the estate, the pool overlooks the nearby beach and tree-lined areas. You can probably hear the roaring waves from up here too! And since the balcony up above barely hovers over the pool, there's no scarcity of sunlight here at all. It's a perfect spot to splash around and get a tan when you're not up to going down the beach. What's not to love?
The private pool in this modern Strathmore Heights retreat emphasizes the “private” part a lot more than all the others on this list. The entire estate practically feels separate from the rest of the district, barely reachable via public transport
. Yet, with the magnificent mountains of the Western Cape on one side and the scenic sea on the other, a dip in this infinity pool will feel like paradise! It's as if you escaped to a remote area that's all your own, all while enjoying the modern-day luxuries of the 21st century. Doesn't sound like a bad deal, does it?
“Long and lean” is probably how you'd describe the private pool in Casa Blanca. Pretty weird choice of words, sure, but its elongated span yet narrow shape simply matches this pair of words. Nevertheless, it's an undeniably luxurious infinity pool with its own fountain at the tip. It's great for little kids to take a dip since Casa Blanca, as a whole, is more of a family home. The narrow shape allows more space for the backyard, perfect for children to run around and then jump in the pool when they feel hot.
At first glance, you can already tell that the private pool at the Msangasanga Villa in Camps Bay is different from all the others. Most evidently, it's bean-shaped, a contrast to the infinity pools that most of the other high-class homes offer. a bit old-school, sure, but that's its main charm. Classic doesn't have to mean old, after all. The bean-shaped pool evoked a somewhat nostalgic vibe since it's the kind of pool you'd expect in decades-old estates in places like the French Riviera
or even in California, USA. Pretty cool, right?
Out of all the vacation villas in Cape Town, these have the best private pools. They add a touch of luxury to such magnificent estates. You'd enjoy swimming in any one of them that you'd hardly need to go to the beach!
