The Bay Atlantic Guest House
Ranked #4 of 54 Camps Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 16, 2011

The Bay Atlantic is an understated, simple yet elegant B&B that invites guests to return again and again. That's mostly due to the friendly staff who create an intimate, cozy atmosphere while still taking care of your every need in a professional way. And the delicious breakfasts cooked to your order are a superb treat to wake up to. Looking out over the swimming pool to the beach, or turning to gaze up at the impressive Table Mountain and Lion's Head with paragliders drifting down to the beach, I hated to leave the little serene paradise. I loved to hear the waves breaking on the beach as I fell asleep in the luxurious white linens on the bed. The fireplace for cold days and the heated jacuzzi are appealing "extras". And everything is kept spotlessly clean by the diligent staff. I would recommend it to anyone.

How many guest houses can boast that they have had an ' Elephant Whisperer ' in their midst, not once but several times the lovely views / environment are yours to share with us whenever you are in this wonderful part of the world. Know that we will see you again shortly. Until then take care !!

what can I say, after a hectic week working I checked in to The Bay Atlantic and have finally stopped wearing my shoulders as earings. If you want to feel relaxed, be part of the family and in walking distance to the beach and a vibrant dining area then this is the place to stay. Apart from the warm welcome and inviting atmosphere the place in incredibly clean and tidy whilst still feeling like you're in a family home.

The only advice I would give is when it comes to breakfast...order an omlette from Beach as they are superb

Those omelettes are becoming World Famous as a result of our guest spreading the news on their return home. It was lovely meeting both yourself and your colleagues. We know that this was an annual conference and as such are hoping to see you back next year. Bring your wife and family they can relax at the pool whilst you are working

Stayed in the penthouse suite for four nights and what a start to our trip to South Africa. Jenny, 'Beach', Bernie and Kelly were wonderful hosts. Making restaurant reservations and giving advice was no trouble. Great breakfasts meant little was required for lunch. The honesty bar was great for an evening nightcap. Camps Bay is a great, safe base for exploring the Cape Town area and the Bay Atlantic a welcoming comfortable place to stay. It is so nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town but only a 10 minute drive away. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Cape Town

Our Penthouse was designed to offer you, our valued guest both rest and relaxation !! The fact that you enjoyed your stay and were able to do so makes all of the planning / effort worthwhile. Being just 150 meters from Camps Bay Beach is a definite bonus for guests such as yourselves who want to experience some of the best restaurants that Cape Town has to offer and the many varied wines on offer without having to worry about driving back ' home ' thereafter.

It was a pleasure having you with us. Come back soon !!

Warm Regards
The Bay Atlantic family.

This guest house/bed and breakfast is a little gem in camps bay, a suburb of cape town, with gorgeous views of the atlantic. fall asleep to the distant sound of the surf, and enjoy a not cooked breakfast in the dining room or on the terrace. All but one room here have sea views with very attentive and helpful owners. highly recommended!

Room Tip: the penthouse is very good value.

On the last day of our honeymoon in South-Afrca we decided to have dinner in Camps Bay at a restaurant we knew from before; we hadn't booked accomodation yet but "found" The Bay Atlantic Guest House and by chance they had a room left; Absolutely LOVELY, well kept, friendly and warm staff, stunning view, tasty breakfast. So if ever we return to Camps Bay; this is where we will stay!!!

Room Tip: go for the Atlantic Room with a view of a sunset in the ocean

Bay Atlantic is also hard to describe, except to say that we had an amazing time. The property is stunning, and the hosts, Beach, Jenn, Kelly and Bernie were beyond gracious and immediately made us feel at home. The views of Camps Bay are spectacular, and the whole area is just perfect.... great location, very accessible, walk to the beach, restaurants, or just hang out in the living room or by the pool. We felt like were staying with old friends. Highly, highly recommend on all accounts!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Atlantic Room which was perfect and understand the Penthouse may even be better!!!

a new person on the "firm" since we were last there but was also very helpful and friendly.
The accomodation is spectacular,the views from the rooms are the sort you can't help enjoying waking up to.The cleanliness of the guest house is superb.
The breakfasts are brilliant, always cereals,fresh fruit,juices and then if wanted a cooked breakfast. David is a 1st class chef @ these.
Not sure what else to say except we are already planning on returning next year,(can't wait)
The whole holiday was and is always a dream to look forward to again and again.
