Villa Penelope provides guests with state of the art luxury living, in fully serviced self catering accommodation. It is owner managed and therefore no expense is spared in ensuring spotless maintenance. It provides guest with the ultimate beach holiday but with the added tourism experience that Cape Town has become famous for. Enjoy relaxing afternoons around the sparkling pool set in a beautiful and flowing entertainment decks with Atlantic Ocean as a back drop. The views from Villa Penelope are absolutely stunning and it is close to the number 1 Restaurant in Camps Bay, called the Hussar Grill. The owners live on an adjoining apartment and are available to assist with any guest requirements.
We had a wonderful stay - The house is beautiful- comfortable with views from every room- the decks offer you the most amazing sunsets-
We dined all of the time outside with a stunning view of the ocean and the mountains.
Zoe is great- she is a bonus and takes great care of everything- you really feel pampered.
The pool was cold- but very clean and well cared for. Full kitchen and the bathrooms are great. Nada and Jean were so helpful- even shopped for us so that we would have wine, cheese etc.. upon our arrival- and they also provided complimentary wine and snacks as a gift.
Thank you again for making our time in Camps Bay so wonderful

Im März 2015 war ich mit einem Freund in dem Haus für eine Woche zu gast. Vom ersten Kontakt mit Adrian bis zum Auszug am letzten Tag hatten wir eine super Betreuung und einen fantastischen Aufenthalt in diesem wirklich tollen Haus. Als wir etwas früher ankamen, war dies kein Problem und konnten uns noch so überzeugen, wie sauber und mit liebe zum Detail dieses Haus für uns vorbereitet wurde. Jeden Morgen kam das Hausmädchen Zoe, welche für das Haus jeden Tag wieder blitz blank putzte und auch sonst immer hilfsbereit war. Die Lage ist super - 5 - 10 Minuten nach Kapstadt City und zum Strand auch nur ein Katzensprung. Camps Bay ist ohnehin ein toller Ausgangspunkt um von dort die Gegend zu erkunden. Wir spielten Golf und bekamen von unserem Vermieter, welcher im Erdgeschoss die Wohnung bewohnt, tolle Tipps dazu.
Alles in allem hatten wir einen spitzen Aufenthalt in Penelope 4b und werden auf jeden Fall wieder dort hin fahren und können es nur jedem empfehlen der mal wohnen möchte wie "die bessere Hälfte" so wohnt.

Four of us stayed in this well presented and attractive villa and enjoyed relaxing on the large patio areas looking out over the bay. The villa is serviced daily to a high standard by Zoe. The owners were most helpful both on arrival and through the week. The villa is well equipped and comfortable. It is 25 minute walk into the main restaurant area of Camps Bay but we would walk down in the evening and take a taxi back.

I have to tell you about the fantastic stay myself and three friends had at this family owned villa , it is high up the side of the mountain with breath taking views of the sea and the evening sky , it is in very good condition with everything you could possibly need for your stay in camps bay , the outside areas are large with a good size pool and you can walk down to camps bay in about a quarter of an hour and it is cheap to get a taxi back up after a meal out.
Adrian and the rest of the family are very friendly and will go the extra distance in terms of customer care and helping you get the best out of your time in cape town.
I also have to mention the brilliant maid service provided by Zoe she comes in daily and will take care of everything you may need done. also if you need a driver with a minibus ask Adrian to put you in touch with Terry who has lived in Cape town for a long time and will be happy to take you on wine land trips or to game reserves or any of the brilliant golf courses in the area, he is 100% reliable and is full of information, do not hesitate to book this villa or any of the other properties owned by the family.

Villa Penelope is a nice, large 4 bed villa a fair way up the hill in Camps Bay. It is in a nice location at the end of a no through road butting up against the vegetation. It is comfortable and well equipped, and offered plenty of space for a group of 4 adults with two babies. The view over Camps bay is lovely, particularly at sunset.
It must be said, however, that some parts of the interior of the property could do with a refresh, particularly the kitchen. This is a nice villa. Think 1980's Miami Vice, but is (and definitely has the feel of) a holiday rental property. Quite a lot of the interior looked like it hadn't been updated for many years (think old faded pictures on the wall, some equipment that didn't work). I don't want to be too harsh on the place (it still gets 4 stars)- but we didn't really get much of a sense of luxury about the place and that was disappointing. Not having experience of other rentals in Camps Bay it's hard to say whether this was standard for the money in the area, but we had just come from a significantly cheaper place in Knysna (which I imagine would be cheaper) but which was in a different league and this probably tainted our view.
Experience with the owner was good, payment, deposit etc all easy, and having Zoe the housekeeper come in every day was a nice treat.
Note that the landlord/landlords parents live in a small apartment below the main villa. They were very nice although they did let themselves in to use the oven one day while we were out (they told us), which I thought was a little odd.
House is close to Hussar Grill restaurant which was great.

This was our first time to South Africa and we loved every minute of it. The villa is large spacious and very well equipped. The views from the villa are amazing especially the sunsets. We had everything we needed and Zoe the house maid was so lovely she couldn't do enough for us. The owners Jed & Jean were lovely and very helpful with places to go and visit. We will definitely be back!!! :)

Villa Penelope was exactly what the pictures looked like - if not better.
Other than the location being fantastic, the house was big enough to accommodate a large group and still have our own privacy. The house was incredibly clean and the staff that came in each day were friendly and thorough.
The house catered for everything that you might need, from a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and even a pool room - makes for a wonderful stay for any age group.
Close to restaurants and the main street along the beach, but the sunsets from the house are truly beautiful.

We had a wonderful 5 nights in this beautiful villa. The views are spectacular and the place is very private. One the left of the villa is just nature and no neighbour can look into the garden or pool area so its completely private. The place was serviced everyday and even the laundry will be done for you (don't forget to give Zoe, the housekeeper, a good tip). Three large bedrooms and one smaller one. Two full-size bathrooms and an extra shower room with toilet on the ground floor.

Just returned from a great holiday in Camps Bay where we stayed at Villa Penelope at Funkey.
The villa is fantastic, spotlessly clean and spacious in the extreme.
The views from all rooms in the villa are breathtaking and the facilities are first class in all departments.
The owners who live adjacent to the main villa were absolutely superb and went out of their way to make our stay as perfect as it was.
We would love to return to the property again possibly in an extended family group

Camps Bay is an incredible holiday destination, it is blessed with stunning beaches, with access to the most incredible hiking trails and other adventure sports. It is also a fantastic base from which holiday makers can access the vast number of different tourist experiences, whether it to experience the wine routes of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschoek, to the famous V&A Waterfront, the Table Mountain Cable Car amongst many other wonderful outdoor activities for the family to enjoy
A car is not essential as Uber is fantastic costing just R25 per trip anywhere in Camps Bay and only a 5 minutes wait. We also have an excellent bus system called the My Citi which gives you access to most parts of Cape Town. We also have many high quality tour guides who can take you on Wine Tours, Shark Cage Diving and also to nearby game reserves.
