“Beautiful Apartment with magnificent views”

people found this review helpful

The beautiful apartment is spacious and well equipped. All other eventualities are covered as well - reading, information on tourist attractions, towels for the swimming pool and beach, washing machine, drying rack, etc etc. The views are amazing as it is above Camps Bay, overlooking the mountains, and the Atlantic Ocean. Perfect. Helen and Seamus are the best hosts, so helpful and friendly with lists and recommendations so that we didn’t miss out on seeing the best the area had to offer. Helen is a great artist and the apartment is beautifully decorated with her own artwork and style. There was a welcome bottle of wine, milk, fruit, coffee and tea in the kitchen - thank you. It was a great base for our active holiday exploring the region, but if you need a taxi use Uber as the local taxis rip you off. There are great restaurants in Camps Bay (The Codfather was really disappointing) but we ate in the apartment on several nights as the views cannot be beaten. We cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. A brilliant stay.

“Beautiful, Restful Place”
Reviewed September 10, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is a spacious, beautiful apartment in Camps Bay, high in the Cliffside with gorgeous views of the ocean and the mountains. The bed/dressing area/bathroom/lower terrace offer comfort and great scenery. The upper terrace with bar, pool, huge doors into the kitchen/living area is also easy to enjoy. It was really great to have a full kitchen to prepare breakfast and enjoy coffee, tea, and wine in the evening. We also were happy with the ability to use a washing machine as we had come out of a week in the bush. The whole apartment is beautifully designed with delightful artwork by Helen, one of the owners, and all the comforts you would hope for. The owners are a gracious, helpful couple who will be around if you need them and who will completely disappear if you want privacy. The apartment was well stocked with reading material about the local attractions as well as just for entertainment. The owners also started us off with a welcome bottle of wine, some milk, fruit and coffee. We would definitely stay here if/when we visit Cape Town again. It made the perfect home base for our active days. Car was necessary and the free parking spot just steps from the front door worked perfectly. Easy to get to restaurants, shopping, beach as well as the bigger Cape Town area attractions. We loved it here!

“A wonderful apartment”
Reviewed August 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had such a good time at Villa Barbara. Everything we could want was there and it was so nice we are in each evening. The sortment is spacious and Helen and Seamus are excellent hosts, full of any advice that is needed. We even had a swim in the pool, though it was the middle of winter! Highly recommended

“Nothing prepares you for the magnificence of the apartment's location and views.”
Reviewed May 23, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Villa Barbara is the perfect apartment for a couple wishing to explore the wonders of the Cape peninsula. It is ideally situated above Camps Bay, with its wide selection of bars and restaurants. Central Cape Town is 10 minutes drive (Ubers are plentiful and very cheap). The rest of the peninsular and the wine regions are conveniently reached by car.

The apartment is extremely well appointed with everything you could possibly need. What makes it particularly special are the glorious views of the Atlantic, Camps Bay, the Lion's Head, Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles, either through the ceiling to floor windows or from the various terraces and the pool.

The owners, Helen and Seumas, were fantastic hosts, but in no way intrusive. My crown fell out and Helen managed to arrange a dental appointment for me within the hour.

We were sorry to leave and would not hesitate in recommending Villa Barbara as the ideal holiday destination.

Flat exceeded our expectations. Gorgeous views, fantastic layout, very private, large, clean and modern, nothing more you could ask for, even the families resident dogs and cat were charming . The hosts were great and even helped us out with a ride downtown after experiencing a problem with our Uber app. Hubby is not to keen on B and B and now has a new opinion of them following this stay. Totally recommended and can't wait to return.

“MAGNIFICENT VIEWS & WONDERFUL HOSTS”

We had a truly wonderful stay at Villa Barbara. The views from our Villa were simply beautiful. The Villa was very well equipped and very clean. Helen and Seumas were absolutely wonderful, they could not do enough for you to make your stay simply perfect. They really spoiled us including having us to dinner on our last evening due to our late night flight schedule. Thank you so much Helen it was delicious and we much appreciated it.
The Villa is very well situated for visiting Cape Town and the surrounding area. Table mountain practically on your doorstep. If we were to ever visit South Africa again Villa Barbara would definitely be our choice of accommodation. Thank you so much Helen & Sheumus for your kindness and wonderful hospitality. Wishing you both the very best for the future. Debbie and Tom
