is located in the Bantry Bay
area of Cape Town
in the Western Cape
of South Africa
Bantry Bay is a suburb of Cape Town which lies to the west of Lion's Head. Although the waterfront here is busy, the upper slopes are prime residential areas renowned for their sunset views and protection from the summer southeasterly winds. To the south the smaller suburb of Clifton has five small sandy bays which are also much better protected from the summer winds than the broader and better known Camps Bay.
Set on a steep slope above the Atlantic ocean, 21 Nettleton is a very high end property with polished service.
The hotel is modern take on the kind of Edwardian mansions typical of the area, with lovely traditional lounge and dining areas, leading out to gardens with a swimming pool, spa and gym.
Guest accommodation is in just five very large suite rooms in the main house, each with a private balcony.
Outdoor activities include beaches, hiking, horse-riding, mountain-biking, golf, surfing, snorkelling, diving, kayaking and sailing plus whale, dolphin and seal watching.
Sightseeing options include Robben Island, the Cape Winelands and the Cape of Good Hope, as well as the museums, shopping and entertainment areas of the City Bowl.
The main potential downsides at 21 Nettleton are the very high prices, the faux architecture, the location above two busy roads and the increased chances of adverse weather conditions May/Aug.
