We were very generously welcomed to Penthouse 4 by friendly and helpful staff who escorted us to our apartment, ideally situated in the most beautiful and serene location in Camps Bay. Spoiled by outstanding views overlooking the beach, glass-like tidal pool and Twelve Apostle mountain range from both the upper and lower levels. We had gorgeous Winter weather and bided our time watching swimmers enjoy the tidal pool morning to evening throughout the weekend. The apartments were fully equipped so that we could enjoy making dinner together as friends and family, the soft gowns, hair dryers and bath and swimming towels meant we could pack light. The interiors are minimal, stylish and spacious.  We were able to walk everywhere that we wanted to go - into Camps Bay to all our favourite restaurants and to the beach just right across the road. The apartment was immaculate on arrival and fully serviced during our stay with full attentive staff who were always available, and the unit was secure with an alarm and covered parking bay. We enjoy sundowners from our balcony on sun loungers alongside the swimming pool, and since we were feeling very lazy on arrival the staff arranged champagne, wine and milk for our early morning Nespresso cappuccino. My favourite moment was taking a bath while looking out over the bay, since one has a full view through a large window from the bathroom and bed. It was also very quietly located and comfortable. I would love to go back again and left feeling totally rejuvenated after my stay here!

We were a group of 12 and we stayed at their Terrace property located on the main road. The apartment consisted of 7 bedrooms (2 on the 2nd level and 5 on the 3rd level). We were very happy with the well furnished spacious bedrooms and the gorgeous sunset view smack in the middle of the living room view. The kitchen was well stocked up with all the essential crockery+cutlery and brownie points for the Nespresso machine! They also had street parking on the sidewalk which was a big plus for Camps Bay.

A couple of downsides were:
1. The load shedding-not really in their hands but the backup was only for the common areas and limited to 1 table lamp in the bedrooms.
2. We had help from the housekeeper but getting so much luggage up on the 2nd and 3rd floor can be a challenge.

Very cooperative and professional management who were prompt with their replies. Overall, a smooth experience and a very memorable stay.

Customer service was great - we had lots of issues before travelling to SA and BlueViews were very flexible and accommodated all of our awkward date changes. We were staying in Penthouse 2 which was lovely on the surface, very big property with 5 bedrooms. Only criticism would be the property looks very tired now. Kitchen is good but sofa is worn, paint/plaster chipping, fireplace looked broken?, outdoor area needs a good clean (lots of dirt within the sofa covers on the outer seating areas). As we were only there for 2 days it wasn't massively inconvenient but we had initially booked to stay for 5 days and this would have been very disappointing to have paid so much and had this standard. Bedrooms otherwise clean and team fairly responsive - we had heavy winds the afternoon we checked in and all outdoor furniture flew into the pool, the pool guy came the next morning to remove everything and clean the pool. Good security and location, and great garage for parking.

Had such a wonderful time we extended our trip. The accommodation was fantastic and little touches like milk coffee water and sparkling wine made it all so much better. It was much appreciated. The staff were great and we were very well looked after. Our location to Bakoven beach was just an easy walk away. Loved it. We will definitely be back.

An amazing experience, words cant describe the view from the balcony or the overall feeling of the Camps Bay area. Myself and my fiance were looked after by South Beach for two nights celebrating our 3 year anniversary and I am struggling to find the words to describe this experience. Professional, passionate & motivated staff accompanied with luxurious amenities, all the bells and whistles included in almost every room, a private pool on the balcony and a city filled with too many things to cover in only 2 days. I found the time spent there far exceeded my expectation. Thank you to the Blue Views staff and all those involved in making our occasion as special as you did. We will surely visit again, and soon!

Deciding to stay at Blue Views’s Villa was the best decision we could have made whilst staying in Cape Town.

A charming property with spacious bedrooms and a fabulous living room made it such a fun yet homely house to stay in- plus being a stones throw away from the beach made it beyond perfect.

Getting in and out of Cape Town via car or taxi was so quick and with Camp bay only a short walk away made getting around so easy.

Would highly suggest to anyone.

Wow!! My friends and I booked apartment 1 of these villas. The apartment was very clean and had all the necessities we needed for a comfortable stay. The blankets and the gowns were luxury. We struggled to use the gas braai and we were told someone will come and assist us. The person arrived within 10 minutes and even suggested to change the gas cylinder. Its also very close to amenities. We will definitely come back here.

Absolutely a beautiful place to stay. Perfectly located along the coast with spectacular views of the ocean. Fully stocked kitchen with grocery stores within 100 yards of the complex. We took regular strolls along the beach road and dined in plenty of cafés, and restaurants, with a variety to choose from. Great security at the complex and we always felt safe. The interior is very modern and very comfortable, and the views are absolutely beautiful. We took a quick Uber ride to the V&A Waterfront, the penguin colony, Cape of Good Hope, and you are nestled under Table Top Mountain. I highly recommend this place to all.

From the moment we made our booking, to check-out, everything was trouble-free. The staff was friendly and helpful. Communication via email and telephone was effective and consistent. The studio apartment was clean, stylish, modern and overall a very comfortable environment. Effective security measures were in place, so we felt quite safe. The restaurants and the beach is in walking distance but, far enough to not hear lots of noise.
We had a blissful weekend! I would highly recommend Blue Views for any young couple wishing to relax and spend quality time together.
