Safe and secure all-women accommodation 

Villa Maria is situated in the heart of Cape Town, and has a long history of providing safe and secure accommodation exclusively to women for almost a century…

Originally renowned as the accommodation option of choice for discerning single women in the early 1900s, Villa Maria moved with the times to transform into popular student accommodation – offering female students a comfortable homely environment where they could focus on their studies and make new friends.

Today, Villa Maria is returning to its roots by answering the call to once again provide safe and secure accommodation to women of all ages, and be a place where long-term friendships are forged over a deliciously catered meal.

Due to its central location – just off the vibey Kloof Street – and accessibility to tertiary institutions, shops, restaurants, medical care, public transport and parking, Villa Maria is a safe, secure and popular option for female residents. Historically, a mix of women opened up valuable opportunities for mentorship and expanding residents’ world view, and we envisage that by opening our doors to a broader age range of women, the same will happen once again.

Always collaborating with its residents and moving with the times, the premises and facilities are regularly upgraded, while access to borehole water makes Villa Maria a water wise and environmentally friendly building.
