Travel & Hospitality Awards

We won’t mess about: 2020 has been one heck of a BAD year. Dk villas has faced our fair share of troubles, the least of which has been the travel ban into and within South Africa (and that was pretty darn bad!) But there has been some good news: and there’s nothing quite like winning a prestigious award to lift one’s spirits. This is why we’re super proud to announce that dk villas Harbour View property in Hout Bay is a Travel & Hospitality Awards winner in the 2020 Africa Awards category!


About the Travel & Hospitality Awards

The Travel & Hospitality Awards is a global recognition program for the travel industry, which acknowledges and awards the very best hotels, tour operators, experience providers, spa & wellness facilities, restaurants, and technology and innovation companies.

Recipients of Travel & Hospitality Awards are scrupulously selected based on the review of customer review feedback, submission material, and the facility comparison of each entrant. And the winners are those who have demonstrated their uniqueness, quality of services and facilities, and exceptional levels of customer care across a number of categories.

“This year, over 1,000 nominations were received, and the standard of entries was incredibly high,” said the team at Travel & Hospitality Awards in a press release. “We were overwhelmed by the quality of entries this year and the judging panel had great difficulty in narrowing the field down but the winners reflect the very best in travel and hospitality standards.”

And we’re so proud to announce our very own dk villas Harbour View property as a winner!


Dk villas’ award-winning property at Harbour View

A mere stone’s throw from Hout Bay beach, with direct views of The Sentinel Mountain and the bay’s charming harbour, you’ll find dk villas’ beautiful and spacious Harbour View apartment. This three-bedroom, two-bathroom selfcatering apartment is a masterpiece and a seamless blend of luxury furnishings, high-end electronics and appliances, gorgeous views, and home-style convenience.

A generous and fully kitted out modern kitchen and state-of-the-art appliances such as SMEG washing machine, tumble dryer, and dishwasher empower guests to prepare full meals and treat this space as a home-away-from-home.

The bedrooms are the epitome of oases with their soft colour palettes, natural textures, Egyptian cotton bedding, luxurious furnishings, and designer room fragrances; an aesthetic and feel that is echoed by the two bathrooms, one full and one en-suite (master bedroom) with a bath.

Finally, a stylish open-plan lounge and dining area with seating for eight guests, large TV (DSTV), and Wi-Fi round out the offering. For guests’ safety and peace of mind, DK Villas’ Harbour View property has 24-hour camera security, electric fencing, and a secure undercover parking bay.
