Value
St Francis Bay self-catering Villas are a great choice for individuals, couples and groups who want a cosy, affordable, spacious, clean and comfortable space to stay. Each Villa booked provides guests with sole occupancy of the entire apartment with a private entrance, courtyard, balcony with village views and off road parking. Situated just 200 metres from the main beach and the vibrant Village hub, guests can conveniently explore all that St Francis Bay has to offer. Being conveniently located in the heart of the Village gives a new meaning to the phrase "park & ride". It's more like "park & walk". Leave your motor vehicle parked safely outside your unit and take a leisurely stroll to the beach or just across the road to cafes, restaurants, pubs, boutiques and the supermarket. So, whether its leisure, sport, dining, shopping or just old fashioned holiday fancies that you’re after, we’ll complement your choice of activities with great service and a super place to stay.

This is our absolutly number one in South Africa. The hosts June and Leon take realy care of us. We feel like part of the family. The apartment is so nice and is just 200m from the beach, 500m from the Golfclub and ther is 10 restaurants within 500m walking distans. We had a smal pool just utside. We stay there 4 weeks. That says more then word can explain and we are coming back.

The villas are superbly situated. Short walk to beach, short walk to shops and restaurants and a great easy hike along the harbour walk. Legends night spot can become a bit noisy at times but as I am a good sleeper, it didn't worry me too much. St Francis is a fantastic place to have a holiday. Loved it and will definitely go back!

Great for families with kids. Units are nice and clean. Great if you are flying in, as they have a beach umbrella, a swing ball , board games and even a boogy board available in each unit. Close to beach and close to restaurants. Noise levels from 26/12 -2/1 might be a problem for some. Great Pool. Highly recommended.

Dear Bridget, we appreciate the time you have taken to complete a review on your stay with us, thank you. We value your kind and positive feedback on our accommodation facilities and closeness to amenities. Unfortunately, the noise levels this peak season were significantly higher than past years and the somewhat illegal actions by the various responsible parties was most disappointing to say the least. We are formally addressing the matter with the appropriate authorities in the hope of preventing a repeat this year. Kind regards, June.

Choosing St Francis Bay Villas as our accommodation during our stay in St Francis bay was unreservedly the best choice we made. The Villas were spotless and clean. Everything was well organised. The friendly and welcoming service from June and her husband was overwhelming. We definitely will make it our home away from home.

You really couldn't have asked for a better villa to relax and enjoy everything St Francis has to offer. Our two kids (3 and 6) loved being there. The beach is 5 mins walk away over the dune. Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and beautifully decorated with the feel of the sea. Kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans to cooked up a meal. If you don't fancy cooking, great restaurants are only 10 minutes walk away. We would definitely stay there again. Highly recommended!

Excellent family holiday . We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa. Very clean and spacious. Nice location. Walking distance to the restaurant and tea garden. Excellent service and food. Spar supermarket is also at walking distance. Very convenient. Beautiful quiet beach is just next to the villa. Star gazing on the beach with the family is the high light of the holiday. Our family had a great time.

The apartment was very clean with lovely decor and plenty of parking available.
Excellent location, walking distance to local shops and the beach. Apartment was well-equipped with all kitchen utensils, beach chairs and some games, additional blankets and even electric blankets for chilly nights. Also TV and plenty of storage space.
