Welcome back to your version of paradise, Love Island fans — complete with drama, couples who are competing for epic relationships and cash, and palm trees that brighten up your television screen. Ah, the couch is truly one magical place to be when your favorite reality show is back for another season of voting, games, and glimpses into tropical places. But these Airbnbs in Cape Town are even more magical, and will let fans like you explore the latest destination for the Islanders.
In past seasons and versions of Love Island, the Islanders have set their sights on Mallorca (Majorca) and Fiji. They've packed their carry-on bags, grabbed their passports, and been whisked away to colorful villas with incredible pools and stunning #views. On the other side of the world, you were all snuggled up in a pair of sweatpants, eating popcorn, and spilling the tea with your roommates who are also obsessed with the show. It's time you took your love for the show to the next level and explored paradise, too.
Granted, these 10 Airbnbs in Cape Town don't come with a camera crew or even a gigantic check at the end of your stay. But they will absolutely immerse you in the Love Island world where anything is possible. Check them out and book yourself a stay before the season is over.
