I prefer boutique over chain hotels and Villa Zest in Green Point is one of the best reasons why: small, superbly stylish and sensational staff. Immaculately renovated inside and out in pristine white, its decor is of minimalist, clean lines in that funky, retro, designer-chic. Fantastic, sun-drenched, high-ceilinged, breakfast room with scrumptious made-to-order menu plus strong coffee and fresh fruit. Small roof-top balcony with lounges, tables and chairs. Intimate and chic pool area with sun lounges, tables and chairs, a cabana area and fire place. I felt like a rock star out here. If I lived in Cape Town, Villa Zest would be perfect to book in its entirety for a highly fashionable sleep-over party with friends. My room was of reasonable size; not overly large, nor small, but abundantly comfortable. Great bed. Toilet and shower aren’t physically separated from the room itself, per se, and lack of privacy may be cause for concern for some. Noise too, depending what type of stay you’re after, from the local kindergarten and street in general, may irritate. The city’s oldest living tradition, The Cape Town “Noon Gun” is fired from Signal Hill, just behind here, each day. A very nice touch is the 24 hour-manned reception – great security as well as guest PR! Location, Location! Walking distance to town (about 20mins) and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront (about 10mins) and Cape Town Stadium. Owned by a long-travelled and USA ex-pat of many parts of the world, the crème de la crème of Villa Zest is the team he has assembled. The service at Villa Zest is like having your own personal butler/concierge assigned to you. Nothing is too much trouble. Chic environs abound, but it is the attention of the Villa Zest team which makes a stay here the best. Stayed 3 nights. Would absolutely return.
