“A superb villa”
Reviewed January 4, 2019 for a stay in December 2018

The villa is beautifully appointed, well located, and of a high standard throughout (with this quality being matched by the level of service - and friendliness - that comes with it)! Indeed, for our first ever Christmas away from home, we could not have picked a better venue, or people to rent from, as they put huge amounts of effort into making our stay a memorable one. We would highly recommend this villa to any couple looking for a safe, secure, charming, sophisticated, and romantic venue, with the added bonus of being able to step into the pool from inside of the home itself: it's all pretty darn fantastic!

“Stunning location-poor service”
Reviewed December 23, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

people found this review helpful

The views are amazing,the apartment is generally of high quality but small things let it down,light bulbs need replacing,sofa is worn and stained,no sensor lighting when you return at night in the dark.For the price it should be perfect.
Adrian and nada are nice people but the service we had was poor.We were there for ten nights and during this time there was a lot of maintenance work going on.We chose this place for the privacy it would give us as a couple, but most days we had things going on in our garden space.Turf being laid,electric fence being serviced, pool filters being serviced, gardeners pruning trees,at one time we had five workmen in the garden!
When we needed pool cleaning no one there,my husband did it one day,eventually Adrian came and cleaned it.Then the owners went on holiday,the maid Sonia tried to clean it ,given instructions by Skype.Hilarious!
Great shame about the service as the location is stunning.

A few lessons learned from this experience!!!

Our first bad review in 17 years of providing luxury secure and serviced villas.

Sadly the garden services would not have been around had you checked in at 2 which is our standard practice. Unfortunately allowing you to check in earlier resulted in a bad impression which was hard to recover from. We therefore fall on our sword regarding this and will make sure it is never repeated. We realize that our offer of a free nights accommodation would not adequacy compensate you this poor start to your holiday by our high standards and James and Karen we sincerely and humbly apologies for this.

We had really bad winds during your stay which effected the pool and electric fence.

The couch, light bulbs and day night light have all been attended to and please be assured had you let us know during your stay we would have addressed these issues immediately.

Norma (whom you refer to as the maid Sonia) is a long standing, well respected housekeeper who takes her job seriously in providing excellent service to you and all our other guests.

She was in our view rightly dissapointed by your description of her successful efforts to clean the pool with our assistance over Skype.

Our guests have become accustomed to swift hotel type responses to any issues that arise and taking into account it was your last day we did not feel that it was right for you to wait for the scheduled pool keeping service which would have been later in the day.

We commend Norma for her sterling commitment to service excellence and managing to clean the pool successfully for your last day. It is indeed sad that you felt it necessary to describe this highly stressful situation Norma was in as hilarious. Please be assured that neither Norma nor ourselves found any humour in this at all and we commended Norma for being able to clean the pool under the circumstances which is something she had never attempted before.

James and Karen we would love the opportunity to redeem ourselves when you return next year to take advantage of your free night and once again our humble apologies. Adrian and Nada

“Amazing ”
Reviewed January 9, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

What a fantastic place. The location is great only a short walk from Camps Bay. The views are absolutely stunning, mountains behind and the ocean in front. The apartment it's self is beautiful with everything you need for a perfect stay. The private garden with BBQ and pool is lovely to relax in when not sightseeing. Adrian and Nada were the perfect hosts on hand to ensure we had a great stay. As mentioned in previous reviews the apartment is even better than the photos. We couldn't have spent our Christmas anywhere more perfect.
Thank you.

My husband and i were really looking forward to staying here for the last part of SA adventure after reading the reviews. We were not disappointed, it was absolutely beautiful. So very well maintained. I loved the view, could lie in bed in the morning and see the sea and the sun come up. Wonderful. Jacuzzi was great! Apartment was very secure. Bit of a walk up the hill from Camps Bay but that wasn't a bad thing. I preferred to be in this location. Hussar Grill very close, had a great night there. BBQ was a plus. I loved the fact that the whole place opened out into the garden and pool area. The maid Priscilla i think her name was, was just lovely. We were able to stay on a bit later on check out day and Adrian helped us with our transfer back to the airport. All in all would recommend a stay at Adriatic.

My husband and I spent 10 days and had a wonderful time! Adrian and Nada are great host and take very good care of their property. We really made that place feel like home. We bought groceries and made our meals every night on the BBQ which we were thankful to have. I would definitely stay there again on my next visit!

“'Superb accomodation'”
Reviewed December 17, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

My wife and I chose this for a chill out period before returning to the UK after a hectic first tour of parts of South Africa. It was perfect for exactly that, even though we still managed a drive to, and do a good walk at The Cape of Good Hope, a walk up Table Mountain, and Lions Head, these we did in the mornings allowing us to relax by the large pool in the afternoons (for those from Europe, the sun was in the garden all day whilst we were there in early December). There is a short walk to the Hussar Grill (great food) which we did when not bbqing.
There was a couple of issues re. necessary items not in the apartment, but Nada and Adrian soon rectified them. The lounge seating could do with being renewed, although it is covered.
We plan to return to SA early 2017 and if we choose this area to visit, we will definitely book Adriatic at Funkey again.
