“Fantastic location and a beautiful home.”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This home was just perfect for our stay in Camps Bay. It is very comfy and relaxed and has everything you need for self catering. You are also just a couple of minutes walk from the fabulous strip of Camps Bays delightful cafés and restaurants....and also the local supermarket.
We didn't use the pool as it was already a little cool being May but it did look like a gorgeous place to relax.
We were 2 couples and a single and we all had privacy and our own bathrooms which was terrific.
Our hosts were delightful people and could not do enough to help us out with whatever we needed and were very helpful with information on great places to eat.
We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely home for your stay in Capetown.

“A Vacation in Itself”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was such a wonderful experience. Rob and Claire were nothing short of amazing and accommodating. The location was perfect: it was a 5 minute walk to the main Camps Bay strip along the beach, where there was a supermarket and plenty of restaurants and shops. The house was beautiful, and it was a mini vacation in itself. If Capetown wasn't such a beautiful place that I wanted to explore, I would have had no problem staying at the house for the entire duration of the trip. Not only did the house have a private pool and beautiful mountain views, it was packed with every necessity we could possibly think of...we even had a barbeque on the last night using the outdoor grill.

I really can't emphasize enough that this was a dream house. If you're looking for a vacation rental with access to everything you need that's also less than a 5 minute walk to the beach, then look no further!

Thank you again Rob and Claire for everything! Can't wait to come back one day.

“Absolutely brilliant!”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed at the house for a week (wish we had booked it for longer). The week included our wedding day, which meant not only were there the 8 people staying at the house but we also entertained/had a lot of friends stopping by/having braai's (bbqs). Claire & Rob were wonderful hosts & made sure the pool, house were always spotless. We loved our stay & will definitely try to stay there the next time we visit Cape Town. Thank you!

“Superb, exceptional & beyond expectations stay!!!”
Reviewed 6 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

From the time of making the initial reservation, to the final day of leaving, I as well as the group of Argentinian friends I was with, received nothing less than exceptional service from Rob & his wife Claire. This means from returning my emails to making sure we were happy& comfortable whilst there. The house itself is fantastically situated, literally TWO blocks or less that five minutes walk from the beach, and even nearer to the supermarket. It's a spacious house for a group of eight. The house is well-kept, especially with Clara and Shadrack coming in at least once a week to maintain the place. Clara taking care of the inside and Shadrack the beautiful garden and pool and entertainment area. What struck us as amazing was the fact that even little details such as charcoal and matches were left available near the "braai" (barbecue for the non-South Africans) area, and some basic spices etc in the kitchen. Basically NOTHING was lacking at the house. I, as well as the group of Argentinians with me, would like to express our sincere gratitude to Rob & his wife Claire for making our stay at Villa on the Bay such a wonderful experience. Guaranteed I'll be back, with more friends from Argentina, and stay at this wonderful "family-orientated" holiday home.

Management Response

Thanks for looking after our villa so well during your stay. We always like to please our guests and make sure their holiday is a dream vacation. Summer is the best time as the beach vibe is fabulous but winter can also be great as not so many crowds. We hope you will visit us again soon.
