This is a perfectly adequate guest house, nice staff and good breakfast. It’s fairly clean and well maintained but perhaps a bit tired in places. On arrival the pool was covered and we asked if it was ok to use. In the two days we...More

About
Description
What makes this holiday home so unique is that there is no other villa so large situated so close to the beach and restaurants and located in a quiet lane. Situated in a leafy cul de sac, only 100 meters from More Camps Bay beach, Camps Bay Village with beachfront shops, trendy cafés, cocktail bars and famous restaurants is a short stroll away. The Blinkwater stream runs in front of the house originating on the top of Table Mountain. After the rain, the gushing of the stream contends with the sounds of the waves breaking on the beach. This Camps Bay house has elegantly decorated bedrooms, all en suite, boasting a balcony each. The three terraces offer the perfect vantage point from which to sip sundowners and indulge the senses with many spectacular sunsets, enjoy a game of pool, soak up the sun beside the swimming pool, take a leisurely swim and just unwind. The buzzing nightlife of cosmopolitan Camps Bay is a minute away. This beachside villa overlooks the famous palm fringed Camps Bay beaches and Atlantic ocean with breathtaking views of the Lions Head mountain peak. Balfour Place offers the best of all worlds, an unforgettable view, a private swimming pool and a short stroll from shops, restaurants and the beach. Simply magnificent is the only way to describe it. Less
