“Good enough for our honeymoon”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

My wife and I travelled to Cape Town for our honeymoon in February 2010. This was the first place we stayed in. We absolutely loved the location which is within walking distance to the beach and nearby eateries.

There is a pool within the compound and a parking lots if requested for. There are rooms with different views to choose from. As we arrived in the morning, we were treated to a hearty breakfast athe the balcony with ocean view. The breakfast on subsequent days was also fantastic with their range of fruit, and memorable eggs done in different ways upon request (must try their omelettes with homeground eggplant/jalepanos). Our hosts were friendly and helpful and so were the other staff.

I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay over places within the city centre as it is only a 10 min drive to the city centre.

Very relaxing place to stay with fantastic hosts and very helpful staff. Wonderful views of the sunset from the house and great views of the mountains from the balcony. Large, very clean bedrooms with one of the most comfortable beds that this world traveller has slept in. New bathroom, spotlessly clean and a great shower.

All in all, this is a great place to stay in Cape Town. Sitting on the hill overlooking the beach it is a very short and safe walk to the esplanade with many restaurants. Highly Recommend.

Family run home from home. Intimate, homely, friendly, go out of their way for you kind of family hospitality!!! Delightful. Great view, The Atlantic room is spacious, great view, great bed to sleep on. Best omelet for breakfast. Help yourself at the bar with a trusting "honesty book" where you write what you drink! Was my birthday weekend & they made me so relaxed. The main lounge boasts sink into leather suites! Will be my choice of stay.

We like to think that The Bay will be your ' Home Away From Home ' and as such are constantly thinking of ways in which we can ensure that it is. Being able to help you relax, unwind and above all enjoy your stay is what matters !!

It was lovely having you here. Don't wait too long to come back.

Warm Regards

The Bay Atlantic was recommended to us by African Blue tours and I am so grateful given that I knew nothing about Capetown or where to stay when we planned our trip. Camps Bay is BY FAR the ONLY place to stay while visiting CPT. It has a pristine beach, a relaxing vibe and lots of great restaurants and shops. The guest house is on a hill with amazing views of Table Mountain or the Atlantic ocean from every room. It is so close to town that you can walk quite easily to the beach and restaurants. The family who runs it makes you feel at home and much like family yourself and the house is wonderfully comfortable. The made to order breakfasts were the best we had anywhere. I loved it there and cannot wait to go back. Sadly we booked a hotel downtown for our last 2 nights to have a different experience and we were SICK we could not cancel it and extend our stay at the Bay Atlantic. We enjoyed it much much more than the Westin downtown.

This was our last stay of our trip through SA and it was the best and certainly a personal favourite of us.

We stayed in the Lion Head Suite and it was perfect. Even from the bed we had an amazing view of the ocean and the beach of Camps Bay. The whole room was perfect and the deck gave us nice views of the ocean, lions head, table mountain and the apostels.
Every morning we had a good breakfast with the same amazing views. There is a swimmingpool present and we used it. It is small but comfortable.
The hospitality of the owners David and Jennifer is amazing. They helped us with restaurants and other things and were really flexible. Real personal service!!

The B&B is beautifull situated, easy drive to the beach and easy to get on the main road

If I would visit SA and camps bay I would definetly go back here!

The Bay Atlantic Guest House, 3 Berkley Road. Our Hosts for our 4 night stay were Beach, Jennifer, David and Bernie and all were excellent...... Beach's breakfasts were to die for and the pepper due were amazing, thanks Jennifer! Rooms were perfectly fine for our stay with well stocked mini bar. Short, safe walk down to restaurants of Camps Bay. We had organised a private transfer from the airport to Bay Atlantic which was excellent, we also used their recommendation of a car hire company which again was great with delivery to the Guest House. Thanks for a great stay. Felicity & Paul

Stayed here the last three nights of my holiday in South Africa just a few weeks ago. Originally moved here becuase the place I was staying at in Camps Bay couldn't keep us any longer due to an earlier booking, but we were far from disappointed when we arrived at the Bay Atlantic. First great thing is it's location, just a 2 minute walk to the beachfront, quite low down on the Camps Bay hillside but still high enough to have great views from the sundeck and pool area. This is probably the best thing about the place as the pool is a great size and the view terrific. We had the Mountain Room which is probably the one room I wouldn't recommend staying as it's so small, but all the other rooms have great views, are much bigger and have balconies. The owners, Jenny and Dave (and dad Bernie) are very friendly indeed and go out of their way to help in any way.
