This venue is stunning and the hosts had an amazingly personal touch to make our trip very special. We found the facilities very good, and the rooms are airconditioned and well maintained. It is pretty much the last house up at the top of Camps Bay, so it required that you have a rental car to really ensure you get the best out of it. There was a personal letter to us when we arrived, with a fruit basket, wishing us a pleasant stay. The hosts are very attentive, yet totally unobtrusive. It is genuinely self catering, so we typically had a small breakfast at the location, and the rest of the time we ate out. Top benefit here is the view from way up high overlooking Camps Bay - it is very special and I highly recommend it.
We have had the pleasure to visit this wonderful place several times. It has become our "second home" and we simply can't wait to return next year On a scale from 1 - 10 where 10 is the absolutely best, we rate: the place - the hosts - the staff and last but not least, the magic view - 11 :-) Thank you Zonia and Jasper for,once again, making our stay, in you lovely place, such a blast.
We stayed at Bateleurs House as a family during December 2015 and loved it. The views are spectacular, the accommodation excellent and the property located in a quiet and secluded cul de sac. The Ocean View room is well-appointed with everything needed for a comfortable self-catering stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the hostess and we were treated like family. Will definitely go back.
My partner and I flew in from Johannesburg having spent 10 days in the heat of Kruger National. We hired our BMW 320i from George and set course for Bateleur's located on Theresa Ave, Camps Bay. Upon arrival we had to be polite and pay attention to the welcoming gestures of our host, because the view was stellar. I selected Bateleur's on the basis of Google Maps; you will notice it is set farthest back from the coast - in other words, there are NO roads behind it, and none to the side either. The view to the East (mountains) is just as good as the view to the west (although you have to leave the actual apartment, in our case, to get views to the east). You feel like you are perched atop the world, and man...does it look good from up here! We have never taken so many pictures in so short a space of time...especially at sunset, which just raises the wow factor to another level. The site is elevated and you actually feel like you're "in" the mountains. Goodness... Our hosts treated us like we were family, and recommended an excellent restaurant (The Hussar?) that we both agreed was the best dinner of our lives to that point. Everyone was so down to Earth and the place has a real grass-roots, "we actually care about it here" feeling coming from the hosts. The Ocean View room has stunning views, especially from the balcony. There are only two other rooms in the complex; we did not see a single other guest, such was the privacy. Be careful of the awning; it is electrically powered, so don't try to extend it manually like I did the first time. Also, be sure to retract the awning when you go out; the winds do pick up somewhat up there (we had some torrential November downpours during our trip to Cape Town). The bed is probably the most comfortable I've slept on, period. The bathroom is beautifully appointed; bordering on palatial. Laundry service was prompt and executed to perfection. To say nothing of the cleanliness, which was exemplary. If you care enough to use your computer while in this nest of beauty then yes, wi-fi is complimentary. Drawbacks are tiny, niggling even. One, the fridge was on the small side. Big deal. The other drawback involved a slightly drawn-out booking process that had its share of hiccups, but truth be told, that's part and parcel with a boutique establishment such as this. Thank you so much for having us - we will be back! - and to everyone (particularly couples) considering Bateleur's: don't waste your time with commercial operations near the beachside. This is a three minute drive, and the view will leave you transfixed. I honestly did not think God's pallette was so rich (I'm colour blind), now I know. Call me closed-minded; I won't stay anywhere else when in Camps Bay, EVER. Thank you, thank you, and THANK you.…
we have stayed at least twice and have loved this accommodation.the hostess and her sister are so welcoming and the rooms are spotless. best of all is the view. camps bay can be a bit lively so its nice to escape the noise.the driveway is quite steep , but easily mastered.watching the sun going down from the deck is a lasting memory
