NikitaChernov1988 wrote a review Mar 2021

Good spacious apartment with all the amenities and necessary staff (iron, hairdryer, complete set of kitchenware, coffee machine). Cozy house territory with a barbecue area, tables, a garden with sun loungers and a pool (the pool is small, but it is nice to plunge in during the heat, especially considering the icy ocean on the beaches). There is a separate parking space for each apartment in a closed area, which is convenient if you take a car. Excellent location in one of the best areas of the city within walking distance grom major supermarkets, Mojo and other restaurants, promenade, public pool and beaches. There is everything for a great vacation.
It should be mentioned that it's some specifics of chosen type of accommodation. It's apartment in an residential complex, so there is no reception, you can get inside the complex only with keys, which will be given after check-in, therefore, upon check-in, it's better to be able to contact the host party via the Internet or by phone, notify the time you will be and inform you arrived (otherwise it's not clear how to get to the apartment). There is no housekeeping every day. As we understood, they should clean up once every 2 days (or after 2 days), in fact there were only once a week (but if necessary, you can always contact the host). Check-out at 10 am and since this is not a hotel, in fact, there is nowhere to leave things except the apartments themselves.

Stayed here as a base for me and my friends to go and play golf. Its clean and tidy and the service was excellent with all the staff being so helpful. The location is a 2 minute walk to Sea Point high Street which has some great bars and restaurants. Moti .who is linked to the villa drove us around and was brilliant taking us to the best places. All in all iwas a pleasure to stay there

We stayed a couple of days at the Villa Sunshine and i can highly recommend it to other guests. The location is perfect just a few minutes from the restaurant and as well to the beach. We had two beautiful rooms with sea view and the whole property is very well maintained.The room is super clean and you have all the things inside which you need. The staff is outstanding good and stays at your disposal for any requests. As European traveler we felt very safe in the area. A big thanks to Mr. Evance and the whole team who made us feel home far away from home. We will definitely come back! Kindest regards from Switzerland, Florian.

We felt welcome from the first moment. Now we know why this guest house is called "Mes Amis Guesthouse". The service was very good and we had a lot of fun with the owner. We got good recommendations for nice places to go and the ocean view was incredable!

Due to the nature of the business I am in, I travel a lot and stay in various B&B's, Guesthouses and hotels. I was surprised to see how well organized this setup was, although I met nobody because of Covid19. The facility is surprisingly stocked with everything you need and much more than ordinary overnight facilities. Thank you.

I loved this place and would rate it a 10/10 according to what I wanted. Parking a little tricky at times, loved the sun pouring into the room over the well sized balcony. The pool was clean and refreshing
Simple but really nice.

Very nice and secure place, the location was close to shops around Sea Point and the shopping centre. Place is spacious and private, good amenities including fridge, oven and cooking facilities. Regularly cleaned and the included car park was most welcome. Would definitely stay there again for our next trip to Cape Town.

Thank you for the nice review however this is surely intended for a different property as we do not have a car park or cooking facilities for self catering. Villa Sunshine is a guesthouse with a working kitchen.

Lovely base, well located in Sea Point. The pool area is lovely and the apartment had everything we needed. Travel cot provided for our 5 month old. Staff were responsive to our needs. This place isn't magical but it is very pleasant.

We spent 5 nights in Cape Town and surrounding towns and this was the worst of them all. Sadly, while the room looked "clean", it was not! The pillows smelt of body odor...that was a starter. The bedsheets did not feel clean. There as no bath gel or shampoo...it was just not a good experience. I guess cheap comes at a price, which is ok, but cleanliness should still be achievable for the price charged.

Airport pickup did not turn up - when we finally arrived at hotel (at additional taxi expense) & brought to owners attention he responded with extreme brusqueness implying it was our fault.The room was tired and barely cleaned. Staff ( including owner & spouse) rude and unhelpful.

Whatever organisation monitors tourist accomodation in Cape Town should investigate this establishment. Its advertised star rating is a joke.

(BTW - the rest of our stay in South Africa was superb and lived up to expectations - highly recommend the Garden Route and Natal)
