Bella Ev was beyond my expectations. The beautiful villa, the interior decor, right down to the careful selection of dishes and cutlery. It was truly a charming experience. The garden, a pleasant surprise with the beautiful mountain as a backdrop was the icing on the cake. I look forward to my next visit to Cape Town and Bella Ev.

What an amazing, quaint, friendly and convenient place to stay. Nested between the mountain and the sea, this 100 year old home is transformed into a B&B with amazing decor of antiques yet comfortable and tastefully decorated. As a vegetarian I was treated to wonderful breakfasts to accommodate my diet, and the owner went out of her way to also... More

This was the second time my husband and I travelled to Muizanberg and the first time we stayed with Bella Ev it did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived until we left three weeks later the staff at Bella Ev went above and beyond to ensure our every need was met. When I became ill not only did Mrs... More

Dearest Rebecca and Adam, Reading your review brought memories of the wonderful time we spent together and the unbelievable support you gave us when Bella Ev was under threat from the ravaging mountain fire. You stood with us as others were vacating, knowing that this was not only our business but also our home. During the 3 weeks that you... More

We like staying in B&Bs that are a bit out of the ordinary and have some style about them, This is a charming unusual guest house with lots of interesting character. It's easy to find with parking outside. We only stayed one night in a room facing the street. The room itself was quirky in a nice way. However the... More

At Bella Ev we strive to offer an individualistic and warm experience as a home away from home, however, the nature of our approach may not be fully apparent to guests passing through for only one night. As a wise man once told us "in this business you will not be able to make all of your guests happy all... More

This is not the usual kind of guest house at all; so if you're wanting a conventional, ordinary, standardised kind of holiday, best you please look elsewhere! Stepping into Bella Ev is like embarking on the exploration of an ancient mythology, inspired by Ottoman/Turkish history, a lost world of beauty, art, eccentricity and quirkiness, with a wholeness and optimism that...

I'm writing a honest Review: First, please note that this is not a hotel this is a guest house. The owner is living in the same house. 1- The service was very good and warm (I like it). Breakfast: not a lot of variety but very enough. I think it is better so to not be fat... :-) 2- My... More

I spent a week at Bella Ev in January 2015. Amazing stay. Make sure to take at least once the gorgeous breakfast! And enjoy the time of a conversation with the landladies. It was really nice meeting you, Kerime and Ursula, I'll do my best to come back, sooner or later, to enjoy your company again!

It was the best guesthouse in which I have been for a long time. Primarily by Ursula's big-hearted hospitality, wonderful breakfast, the unbeatable cleanliness and the opportunity of plenty excursions near Muizenberg, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and further more. The breakfast was prepares with lots of love and individuell prepared on separate requests (in case of allergies or intolerances). So... More

My family and I recently stayed at Bella Ev for a part of our Cape Town vacation. Ursula and her staff made the experience carefree and we really enjoyed their impeccable hospitality and service. The venue is beautiful and will suite any traveller as it is also perfectly located. Nick Bronkhorst - Pretoria
