Project Description



Reminiscent of a Robinson Crusoe island hideaway, this private haven with endless ocean views is magically situated amongst gnarled trees and mountain rock in the tranquil coastal village of Scarborough. A luxurious sanctuary of impeccable taste and design just 10 minutes from the Cape Point Reserve and 40 minutes from the heart of Cape Town.

Synergy is the essence of luxury, refinement and exceptional service … a place to rest, breathe and be.

With total privacy, the feeling of a much loved home is recreated at Synergy. Beautiful balau walkways wind through the trees interlinking the various aspects of the home, and bringing the multiple entertainment areas together in perfect harmony. A fine looking fire pit sits at the heart of the home, and the glass walls of the upper living area can be drawn back so as to enhance the seamless flow of indoor and outdoor living. Having only two bedrooms this is an intimate, romantic, special space. The kitchen is fully equipped with Smeg appliances, right down to a coffee machine that pretty much makes your coffee for you. There are two wood burning fire places for those wintery days, along with plasma screen televisions in both of the bedrooms and in the lounge. There is also a water feature flowing through the space adding an element of absolute tranquility. The gardens are the pride and joy of Synergy, boasting a plunge pool surrounded by comfortable chaises to stretch out on and soak up the warmth of the day. Oh, and there’s a fabulous outside shower too! Think luxury and relaxation … we will take care of the rest.

Additional services can be arranged, such as meditative yoga classes on the deck or a variety of massages and holistic treatments to bring you into absolute presence and tranquility.

What our guests have to say…

“We had an incredible weekend. Synergy is state-of-the art with no expense spared – you feel like you have stepped onto a movie set. It was absolutely magnificent! We were a bit hesitant of the glass, spiral staircase at first, but quickly realised it could be trusted to carry us!

Top of the range appliances and finishes, spectacular views, every comfort.

Unheard of these days, really, such a personal touch.

So all in all we absolutely loved our stay, loved being able to walk to a fabulous little restaurant / deli for breakfast. We would love to go back in summer and open up all the stacking doors to enjoy the inside / outside flow to its full potential.”


“What an awesome state of the art hidey hole for a winter escape!

The fireplaces worked overtime which allowed us to take in the amazing views sipping champagne from the lounge.

We are not going to tell our friends about Synergy as we would like to keep it to ourselves!”

The Tomlinson Family

“We recently stayed at the Synergy in Scarborough with our two boys and found this place to be an amazing tree house type retreat within an hour of Cape Town.
We are very warmly received by India and Craig, who were exceptionally helpful and we were quite surprised to find our fridge stocked up with all lovely goodies we did not expect.
They even came to start the fire for our BBQ and internal fire places for us.
Our young boys loved it to, especially the rock path from their elevated bedroom to their bathroom. The perspective from their bathroom shower and bedroom was spectacular. Looking through the trees towards the sea.
The architecture and structure of Synergy is so beautifully put together and the energy felt great in the house. The attention to detail was exceptional with the finished beyond all expectations.
We would definitely recommend it to anyone and will certainly return one day soon.”


“We spent a wonderful weekend in Scarborough at Synergy.
The accommodation is the height of luxury and beauty. The finishes are superb and no expense has been spared with the fabulous linen!! Surrounded by nature and with unbelievable views the house is tranquility and total peace at its best.
We will definitely go and stay there again.”
