Inside four South African homes to rival the Love Island villa

It’s quickly becoming one of the most recognisable properties on television, but we’ve found four stunning South African homes to rival the Love Island villa.

These paradisiacal properties are all tucked away in the foothills of the Western Cape, which is where the ITV2 show is being filmed, with each multi-million pad boasting breath-taking views.

But would you ever consider relocating to the idyllic coastal region?

Fresnaye, Cape Town

This dreamy mansion, with its remarkable panoramic views over the South Atlantic ocean, is an absolute gem and it’s easy to picture islanders lounging in any one of its many suntraps.

The floating glass staircase is a classy addition to a property that already boasts elegance in abundance. The open plan living areas, which charmingly link the indoors with the outdoors, are the perfect places to enjoy the afternoon sun. Not to mention, that pool is definitely our type on paper.

This property is listed for sale with Dogon Group Properties.

Camps Bay, Cape Town

Our heads have been turned by this award-winning villa, which is not only an architectural beauty but an exceptionally impressive place to host parties and entertain guests all-year round.

Renowned architect Nico van de Muelen designed the house, with luxury taking centre stage at every turn. Its vistas capture the landscape in extraordinarily romantic fashion, whilst inside you’ll find African rose wood, six en-suite bedrooms, a gym and a home theatre.

There are also nine balconies – ideal spots for islanders to gossip on camera.

Clifton, Cape Town

Overlooking the gorgeous Clifton beaches and the Twelve Apostles mountain range is this incredible waterfront apartment.

The star of the show is the spacious bar area and gourmet-style kitchen, which offers remarkable views of the setting sun as you prepare for a fun-filled evening.

With direct access to the beach and a communal pool, this place is the ultimate South African haven.

Upper Constantia, Cape Town

Discreetly nestled in a cul-de-sac in the heart of the Constantia Wine Valley, this wonderfully contemporary home is the epitome of style and extravagance.

From the hydronic underfloor heating to the floor to ceiling windows, this ultra-modern five-bedroom country manor is state-of-the-art from top to bottom.

The property boasts its very own wine cellar, sauna, gym and outdoor swimming pool – all the essentials for your typical Love Island contestant.

This property is listed for sale with Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty.
