Eleven elegant rooms, including the fabulous Ellerman Suite and East
Wing Suite, are individually crafted to provide a fabric of fantasy
and luxury. These, together with the gracious living rooms and sweeping
verandas and patios, boast unsurpassed views of the shoreline and bay
below. Amenities include a cellar of fine South African wines, a bar
with fireplace, a fully equipped gym and sauna, a glorious garden and
a large swimming pool.
The Regency-style splendor of the drawing
and living rooms are enhanced by tasteful antiques and South African
art. Faithful preservation of the historical architecture with indigenous
renovations have blended Ellerman House with the magnificent garden
and created secluded sun splashed places for relaxation and entertainment.
Being a home rather than a hotel means that all of the rooms are different in size, shape and
décor yet they all have common features such as under floor heating, air conditioning, satellite
television, heated towel rails, luxurious toiletries and Internet connections.
Room One (Sea View, balcony)
This exquisite sea-facing bedroom (originally Lady Ellerman’s boudoir) is decked out in shades of calming green – from soft pistachio to zesty lime. It offers contemporary touches with botanical prints, turned lamp bases and a custom-made textured headboard. The bathroom is a luxurious pamper space in marble and silver. The wraparound balcony offers the perfect spot from which to enjoy sundowners and broad vistas of the ocean.

Look out for the quirky circular window which frames another magnificent sea view.
Room Five (Garden View & Balcony)
Quiet and secluded, with soothing views of our natural rock and water garden, Room Five has a somewhat nautical feel: comfy wing back chairs in crisp white and blue stripes, charcoal sketches by William Kentridge and bold embroidered flower patterns on a custom-made curved headboard. It’s a look of timeless elegance that is echoed in the serene double-basin marble bathroom.
Room Six (No Sea View & No Balcony)

Spa Deck Room (Sea View & Deck)
A warm cocoon of honey-coloured wood paneling, plush carpet and crisp cotton has been created in this peaceful sanctuary-within-a-sanctuary.

The bathroom is a contemporary fusion of glass and granite, which can be closed off with discreet sliding doors.
Spa Pool Room (Sea View & Deck)
The serene infinity pool - which seems to extend into the Atlantic Ocean - is a stunning focal point in this spacious room adjacent to the Ellerman Spa. Heavenly scents drift into this tranquil space which is bathed in soothing nature-inspired colours and textures. The décor is modern and minimal with warm beech wood paneling and hints of coppery tones.
Ellerman Villa is the epitome of self-contained luxury and attentive 24/7 care (private chef and hospitality team included). Enter your slice of paradise from the stunning wraparound pool deck or via the leather-clad lift straight from your very own private parking lot.
Step inside a magnificent light-filled space filled with hand-picked contemporary South African art pieces. Look out for the high-octane glamour of a Swarovski crystal chandelier that hangs across two stories. Upstairs – as you walk past prized John Meyer pieces - choose from the calm and serene Lilac Room, the exquisite Aqua Room or the charming Yellow Room.
Catch up on work in one of the two studies or snuggle up in front of the box in the TV lounge (if you can tear your eyes away from the Demby Meyers and Andriaan Boshoffs on the wall).
