Everything was perfect. It was walking distance from the beach and the view was amazing. This was a perfect hotel...probably the best one I've ever stayed in. I would recommend it to everyone. The plunge pool is very tempting but it is solar heated.

A very nice home in a very nice area. It's a pitty that the neighbours are building an extra floor on top of their house. Because of this, the view on the bay is totally gone! The house is very well equiped and decorated with good taste.

We were a group of three families who stayed at the villa over a weekend recently. The villa is very well thought out with every small need catered for. A self sustained vacation paradise. The bedrooms are very well planned and furnished, the kitchen very well quipped. The music and entertainment systems are right on top with the 3D goggles... More

Been there for 8 nights and everything was perfect. Staff very nice and always ready to help you. Penthouse is great and Camps Bay a great location. The pool and terrace is a great way to enjoy the sea breeze.Really suggested.

The place is perfect if you are travelling with friends or a family with kids. It is clean, spacious, top end amenities, cleaned everyday by Ruth (who... More

Ruth (the cleaner) and Moses (handman) are on hand should you ever need them and they really make sure you have everything you need. Two large double rooms, one... More

We stayed here for two nights and our only regret was that we did not stay for longer. We stayed in the main house, and couldn't have asked for more. If you want to chill out, in open plan surroundings with a gorgeous view, then this place is perfect. The beds were super comfy as well. Would give it 10/10.... More

We stayed in the main house as well as in the penthouse. Both are suitable for kids as well. The house was very nice and comfortable. Everthing you need is there. The kitchen is fully equipped and if you want to get breakfast or diner it's a nice little walk down where you can find the local supermarket. Or you... More
