This exclusive address perched high above popular Clifton Beach is nestled amid some of the country’s best real estate, and with good reason: the mountains are the backdrop and the Atlantic Ocean unfurls in front of the hotel. Owner and interior designer Jessica Latimer transformed a once-stuffy old abode into an airy oasis, imbuing the spaces with a contemporary yet timeless feel. This villa is designed like a chic beach house swathed in crisp whites, soft grays, and soothing taupes.
Cape View Clifton isn’t the kind of hotel where the staff will cloy guests with attention. They’re there when you need them—to help you plan an excursion, perhaps—but they’re mostly unobtrusive, so guests can do their own thing, uninterrupted. Just as one would at their own beach house.
