We visited Villa Surprise in February 2020. Our host Linzi provided a very warm welcome and a bottle of complimentary water on our arrival. We were given a tour of the breakfast room, garden and pool area and allocated the Africa themed room on the ground floor which was wonderful and quirky. The theme continued in the bathroom and had a large shower as well as his and hers sinks and lovely toiletries. There was also a little sitting area beyond the bedroom but as it has a glass roof it was a bit too warm to use in the heat of the summer. There are floor length blinds to separate it from the bedroom and the air con kept us comfortable. A great breakfast is provided and kept us going for the day. There is an honesty bar providing snacks and drinks if required. It’s a short walk downhill into Camps Bay with its sea front and beautiful beach. (Note it’s a little tougher walking back up!) There are several bars and restaurants along the front with a variety of food available. All in all a great stay and would definitely return though next time would opt for a high floor for the view ;-)

If you are a morning fresh air lover over coffee, I’d definitely recommend this place. We had a beach room, it has a private large balcony that’s beautifully decorated with real plants and Overlooking the lions head with sea view as well! The room had a very comfortable bed, an aircon and a large space. The place is located within a very short distance from camps bay beach, we didn’t have to travel far to get dinner.Every morning there’s fresh breakfast, with fresh exotic fruits and an option to get hot breakfast too. The breakfast area is very beautiful, surrounded by trees if you want to sit outside. The place also offers a variety of drinks at reasonable prices.

We stayed in the Italian room - it was large and spacious with a nice seating area and balcony with mountain and sea views - in fact all the rooms tastefully decorated in different themes. All the staff, Linzi and Rolf were brilliant. Nice pool area and gardens too. If we're lucky to come back to CPT again we'll certainly stay here.

We stayed eight nights in the Movie Room, which was spacious, beautifully clean and had lovely comfortable beds! The staff were all very helpful and made you fell welcome and at home. Lovely breakfasts all freshly cooked to order, with tea and coffee available all day. It is situated about five minutes from Camps Bay beach where you can pick up tour buses to take you all over Cape Town, so extremely convenient. We recommend getting a city tour ticket, you can get some great deals!
We had a lovely time and thoroughly recommend Villa Surprise.

We were greeted by lInnzie, who was extremely warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome. A great location and our room had superb views over camps bay. Very well positioned to walk into camps bay. Breakfast was a good choice, with a freshly cooked option. A most enjoyable few days for us to start our holiday in South Africa.

I stayed in the Beach/Ocean room that had a private corner balcony overlooking Camps Bay, Lion's Head and the Twelve Apostles behind. Sunsets were the best! Hosts, Linzi and Rolf, were very friendly and helpful. Great location as only minutes walk to the beach, supermarket, restaurants and HOHO bus stop. The room was a good size and comfortable. It was a home away from home for a week, which I preferred to a hotel room. Made use of the garden and pool, and the breakfast was lovely and plentiful.

We stayed 4 nights in the Beach room with fantastic views over Camps Bay. Linzi was a great host and gave us lots of valuable information about Cape Town and what to see.Walking distance to restaurants , shops and the beach. Beautiful sunsets over our terrace and a small pool to cool down in. A perfect place for a quiet break.

I must say the host was amazing, very friendly and the guesthouse was super clean and I loved the interior deco. Location was amazing, underneath the 12 apostles and with an ocean view from the balcony. The beach is about 5 minutes walk but would recommend visiting the Clifton 4th beach. Its private and more accommodating (less people). We were lucky enough to have the four season during our stay, thus making November suitable month for warm weather trips. The guesthouse provides breakfast, I would recommend a fridge in the rooms. I would definitely come back!!
