“Comfort and luxury in an excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Sitting in the lounge of Penthouse 1 looking out through the floor to ceiling windows at the stunning view over the ocean and the mountain is always one of the highlights of my frequent visits to Cape Town. I actually dont mind which property I stay in because all of them are awesome. I've stayed at the Terrace, Penthouse 1 and 2, the Studio and also the Cottage and I've enjoyed them all. Every house is finished to a very high standard, all with lovely ensuite bathrooms and kitchens that are so fully equipped even the most discerning chef will be more than suitably impressed.

Complimentary tea, coffee, juice and biscuits are always appreciated but I'm particularly thankful for the free wifi and satellite TV. Very few places in South Africa seem to offer free wifi which I think is an absolute must. I find it a much better choice to stay in a beautiful, comfortable, fully serviced house where I can really enjoy the space and the tranquillity for the same amount of money or often far cheaper than any of the 4 and 5 star hotels in Cape Town. I get the great views, the luxury and service that I desire in a fantastic location. It's a far superior choice to staying in a hotel, particularly for a family or group but also for couples or singles.

For me I feel like Blue Views is my home away from home. I absolutely love staying here and I'm very sure that you will too, regardless of which property you choose. Cape Town is such a beautiful city and Bakoven really is a wonderful area to stay in. Enjoy it.

My husband and I have traveled extensively, but the Blues View Studio was the best value ever. The studio was spacious with a separate bedroom area from the living and dining area...and its own kitchen or as you call it self-catering. We looked out our front door onto the ocean and in back of us were the mountains. The scenery was hard to beat! The studio is right on the main road which extends all the way down the beach until the terrain makes you go inland. Still, we were only 10-15 minutes from the down town area. CapeTown is the best and Blues View Studio is the best value around. By the way, the staff is accessible and quite friendly and was able to secure tickets if we needed them as well as resolve minor issues when we had them.
Our daughter and her fiance had stayed in another Blue Views property and found it equally satisfying. They've done a great job of making guests comfortable and of designing quite wonderful properties. Telephone and Internet available in room.

We stayed in Penthouse 1 and were blown away by the outstanding views, the effortless luxury of the apartment and the first class service we were given. When we booked it the apartment looked stunning in the photos and on arrival, it was even better than it had looked in the photos. As well as being uber cool, it is also exceptionally comfortable and inviting. The management and staff made us feel very special and gave us lots of insider info on enjoying the best of Cape Town. They also helped organise all our trips and were always on hand so we felt as though we were staying in a very private apartment of a 6 star hotel.
This level of service was continued in the way the staff cleaned the apartment 6 days a week (including doing all our washing up) and took all the effort out of self-catering so that we enjoyed every minute of our stay there.

I stayed in the Blue Views Studio, everything was great. I can definately recommend it to a single person or a couple. It's luxurious, quiet, right at the beach and restaurants and shops nearby. The staff was fantastic!

We spent three days at 6 Beta rd with a few friends. First off, we couldn't decide which bedroom to use as they were all amazing! The living area is well appointed and spacious with a great pool by the front patio! The kitchen was open plan allowing us to continue entertaining our guests while preparing food! The villa is close enough to the beach of bakoven which is great for swimming and snorkeling! There is even a playground outside the villa where the kids could play safely! The shops, bars and cages of camps bay are literally 5 minutes away and my girlfriend loved that she could go for long runs along the sea front in the mornings.
Ten out of ten for sure!

We have been staying in bakoven with blue view several times, because it is close to the city (10 minutes) on the layed back beach (away from camps bay but you can walk there) in the comfort of our own house. Enjoying the penthouse with stunning views, great kitchen, big rooms and a lot of nice furniture. but also in the cottage we felt home, all bedrooms are on suite and spacius. Service is impecable. on arrival there is coffee, thee, milk and juice in the fridge. Everyone is there to help you, with a smile. The wifi connection works perfect! We will be back soon!

Blue Views Luxury Villas rents out several penthouses and villas in Bakoven, Camps Bay. They also run the amazing Zambezi Queen River Cruise on the Chobe River between Botswana and Namibia.
We stayed at their Penthouse #1 which is located on the 4th floor of Victoria Road in Bakoven. Views from the property are stunning - due to the location on the Bakoven headland and being higher than neighbouring buildings seaviews encompass more than 180 degrees - from the far Oudekraal side leading to Hout Bay to the small Barley Bay on the right. The terrace doors open fully from the living room and open plan kitchen / dining area onto the terrace and plunge pool. The design and furniture of the place is very white which blends beautifully with the blue ocean views.
There are 2 bedrooms, the master bedroom has sea views out to the side and views of Lions Head. The bathroom is reached via a small connecting bridge over the entry staircase - with views of table mountain. The kitchen is open-plan with a bar counter, a gas barbeque is outside.
Access to the property is from the back (1a Houghton Road) or front (Victoria Road). Despite being on a busy road noise from traffic is not an issue as it is drowned out by the waves anyhow. Wind is always an issue in summer in Cape Town, but due to the construction of the penthouse the terrace area is largely shielded. The penthouse can get very hot in summer though, despite air conditioning.
Cleaning service comes 6x a week - and even the fridge was stocked with basics upon arrival! The kitchen was superbly equipped.
Camps Bay promenade with shops, Pick 'n Pay and dozens of restaurants is 10mins walk away and a small beach is just 2mins walk away. Driving into the city and to the waterfront takes about 15mins.
This place is excellent for one or two couples. A car to get around Cape Town is recommended as public transport is poor, but taxis can always be called (Rikkis ZAR 85 to Waterfront)
