We had the most amazing stay at Villa Surprise. We were upgraded to a room with most spectacular views od sea and mountains. The scrumptious breakfast in the beautiful garden, the location, the cleaning, the friendly attitude of Lizzie and staff, everything was outstanding. Hope to return in a couple of years. Thank you for wonderful hospitality.

Our family stayed in the guesthouse for 9 nights. A very friendly hotel. Friendly staff. We felt at home. Designer decoration of rooms. Very clean, light. Everything here is done with a soul. Nice breakfast. The location is very convenient near the sea and the party street. We will definitely come back here again!

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.

I had an absolutely amazing weekend. Rolf was very nice and accommodating, very friendly and informative. Speaking to Linzi also put my mind at ease about the booking and my stay. Fantastic views and location. Took a quick walk to the beach and took some amazing snaps at the surroundings. Thank you so much. I will definitely be back again in future. Kay-lee
