Village N Life

Since launching Cape Town’s first Guest Street in De Waterkant in 1994, the hospitality village concept evolved and developed into an authentic "Village Experience" with all the services you’d expect from a hotel. Guests are no longer confined to their establishments but are invited to experience the spirit of their surroundings.

Village N Life offers quality accommodation ranging from affordable serviced apartments to luxury hotels acting as your host in the most desirable locations. These locations include the V&A Waterfront, Mouille Point, De Waterkant, and the ever popular Camps Bay in Cape Town, as well as the towns of Hermanus and Langebaan.


Our portfolio is proudly flagged by The Bay Hotel, with the majestic Twelve Apostle mountain range as a back drop and the Atlantic Ocean less than a minutes’ walk away, The Bay Hotel boasts an unrivalled location in the heart of glitzy Camps Bay.

After a busy day seeing Cape Town’s world-class sights, exhale and relax with a sunset cocktail, a treatment in the on-site spa or some time lounging around one of four sea-facing pools. Or if that all sounds too demanding, retreat to one of the 78 bright, modern rooms or suites to gaze out at the beach and do absolutely nothing at all.

The Camps Bay Retreat boutique hotel is a sanctuary for the soul. On the property you will find a mountain meditation pool, thickets of trees, waterfalls and streams. Set on four acres of lush green nature reserve, the Retreat is a peaceful paradise, where meditative moments are waiting to be had.

Situated in the heart of the historical village, Hermanus, Harbour House Hotel has been modelled after its original architecture, a thatched roof seaside manor house built in 1920. Being perfectly located above the Old Harbour, the hotel’s understated luxury is offset by the soothing surrounds of the ocean. Guests are offered a choice of accommodation from the historical architecture of the thatched roof seaside Manor House built in 1920, to the contemporary New Wing and Harbour Square. Rooms are luxuriously appointed with sophisticated modern decor, all within easy walking distance of the town’s top attractions, whale watching sites, markets, restaurants, street cafes and an abundance of reserved natural splendour.

Overlooking the tranquil Langebaan lagoon, The Farmhouse Hotel is an experience to be savoured. Celebrated for our pleasant staff, in-house museum and West Coast warmth, The Farmhouse Hotel offers guests an authentic coastal farmstead experience. Explore the lagoon, stay fit in our Technogym, browse through our antique collection or simply relax and enjoy the sunset.

The Panorama Restaurant at The Farmhouse Hotel serves traditional cuisine with a variety of seafood complemented by a carefully selected wine list. Breads, cakes and pastries are freshly baked daily and are best enjoyed with a cup of coffee on the restaurants veranda overlooking the lagoon. The Farmhouse Hotel is an unpretentious and welcoming escape for travellers and families who appreciate the warmth of farm style hospitality.


Panoramic views of the Atlantic and spectacular sunsets are the order at The Crystal, architecturally stunning apartments in one of the world’s premier scenic settings.
