My girlfriend and I have spend 3 nights at the Villa Surprise. Rolf, Karen and the maids have been great hosts to us. I have no reservations about recommending this guest house and would definitly go there any time again.

Accomodation/pool: Very clean, just the swiss way.
Breakfast: A very nice and comprehensive selection was available.
Location: Close to the beach and various restaurants are reachable in walking distance.

It is just a wonderful place to stay.

I liked the garden most of all, it was sunny and sheltered from the wind. The rooms were also nicely done, the beds comfortable, the showers powerful and the breakfast plentiful. Karen was really helpful so always speak to her if you need to plan your day. It's a short walk to the main beach and promenade in Camps Bay.

Room Tip: We had the Morocco twin room which lead directly onto the garden.

We stayed here on the last leg of our Honeymoon and the place was a great find. Carefully designed rooms with a lot of character and an ideal location in the beautiful Camps Bay which will not break the bank. The personal help & advice from Rolf was superb, and we can't thank him enough for helping to make our trip so special.

What a beautiful guest house, perfect location, gorgeous rooms, amazing decor and not to mention the wonderfully intimate and personal service from dear Rolf, who was always on hand to recommend restaurants, sight seeing, taking messages for us when we were not sure if our shark dive was going ahead and leaving us a quirky little message on our door to confirm that it was, he even stood in the garden for what seemed like hrs at a time to check when the cable car to table mountain was running again as the wind had stopped it for a few days. To top it all off, even though we paid for the cheapest room, as it was free during our stay, he moved us to the King Suite for the last 2 nights of our stay. Rolf gave us a tour of all the rooms, they really are remarkable and comfortable is not the word. I would recommend this little gem to anyone and everyone, it doesn't get much better than this!!

Room Tip: They're all beautiful!

We stayed in the beach room for 3 nights and found Villa Surprise to be in a perfect location, Camps bay promenade is less than 5mins walk. The beach room was a great size with its own huge balcony which was great for watching the sunsets! Bathroom had a lovely roll top bath and both it and the room were very clean. I had been worried from pictures on the website that the curtains in the room would be very light and let the sun in in the morning but in fact this was not the case and I slept so well. My only negative point is the breakfasts, cooked breakfasts (apart from eggs) were not included in the price but even if you wanted a hot breakfast nobody was there to take your order until you were pretty much about to leave the table. Not a huge point but just something that we didn't like. But overall we really enjoyed our stay at Villa Surprise, Rolf and Marko were very friendly and it was a beautifully decorated house.
ps if you do stay in camps bay you must eat at the codfather, yummy!
