It's A Private Affair

Posted on Thu May 2, 2024.

Our life journeys are experience-filled; moments creating lifelong memories. A villa stay is synonymous with exclusivity and flexibility. The precious opportunity to first-handedly tailor-make those special moments with loved ones.

Our 27 year villa journey has led us to A PRIVATE AFFAIR, a series of bespoke experiences, enthralling activities and customised trips that offer our guests indelible adventures.

We have selected some pretty amazing things to do, see, taste and try - from in-villa experiences such as distilling your own gin from micro stills, tasting rare vintages with a sommelier, food theatre with a private chef, wellness treatments and personal coaches; to outdoor adventures such as wild yoga on Table Mountain, discovering nature with the fynbos whisperer, an exclusive ceramics class with award-winning local African ceramicists, cooking classes and lunches in local Capetonians' homes... and so much more!

Explore your next adventure with us:


Sometimes the best escapes are the ones that allow you to just stay put for a while. A villa stay offers everything that a hotel stay does, and so much more. In the privacy of your own sanctuary, let the world come to you - on your own time.


Immerse yourself during your travels by learning a new skill; be it testing your creative skills with ceramics, distilling your own gin in the convenience of your villa, or learning how to cook a traditionally South African meal.


At Icon Villas we believe that life is about discovering new tastes; every bite should be part of your sensory journey through South Africa. The epicurean experiences we offer are not only enjoyable, but also educational.


We have partnered with leading Cape adventure and touring companies to bring you a range of unforgettable day trips and experiences that offer once-in-a-lifetime adventures.


Unplug to recharge. Indulge in a massage in the privacy of your own villa, or opt to be active with a personal trainer or yoga instructor, whether indoors or out and about exploring your beautiful surrounds.
