Restio River House

  • 10 guests
  • 5 bedrooms
  • 4 bathrooms

This contemporary-chic villa, located on the banks of the Buffels River, not many metres from where it spills out onto Pringle Bay beach, offers the best of both worlds: riverside relaxation with panoramas to the river mouth, white-sand beaches, ocean and mountains beyond. The stylish interior is simply jaw-dropping, while the sumptuous setting speaks for itself.

Designed by top South African architects SAOTA, it has been built to make the most of the multifaceted views, and the sun’s path. Floor to ceiling glass walls invite the fynbos-clad mountain and sparkling ocean into each living space, morning light floods the lounge area, while the west-facing couches provide a spot to watch the sunset. An internal courtyard is surrounded by wild and indigenous greenery, making for seamless indoor-outdoor living and relaxed holiday living.

The house sleeps 10 in five bedrooms (you’ll have to pull lots to see who bags the main bedroom upstairs; although all have great views, this one is the plum). Aside from the open-plan living area – a tasteful yet plush space, warmed by two fireplaces – there’s a downstairs games room with table tennis, foosball and pool tables, as well as canoes and SUP boards for exploring the river.
