Watercolours Studio was more than we hoped for! A little gem with a beautiful garden, swimming pools and view. The studio inside is cosy and modern with everything you need. Spotless and perfect. We will definitely recommend it and visit it again. Sharon, the host, was very helpful and friendly. Put this one on your bucket list!

We loved our stay at this perfect studio with amazing views. The extra touches such as wine and essential groceries were much appreciated. Watching the sunrise every morning from the tiered garden areas was unforgettable.

We had a fabulous stay at the studios…the apartment was great, lovely living room area and super comfortable bed in the bedroom. The garden areas are beautiful and our only issue was that we wished we had booked for longer than our two nights! Lovely walk along coast to Boulders Bay and we also enjoyed a day trip to cape point. Wifi was very good, smart tv in apartment was a bonus and parking available for our car. We’d love to come back again!

We've had only three nights at Watercolours Studios and left with deep sorrow that we couldn't stay longer. The apartment is beautilfully designed, the garden and the view are breathtaking, plenty of activities and sights are in reach, and Sharon is a totally outstanding host. Nothing could have been better, one of the best places we ever stayed at. Highly recommended.

What a wonderful place! We stayed 3 nights in a stylish, well-equipped studio with a breathtaking view over the beautiful garden and the sea. Theo was very welcoming and supportive and such a friendly guy. Just a pity that the sun loungers and the umbrella at the pool are not in a good condition and the WiFi in our room did not work. Except from that, we enjoyed our stay very much and would return anytime.

Great views to the ocean. Nice rooftop terrace. Pool is clean but cery small. WIFI almost nonexistent. Very clean and high quality of service. Safe place to stay. Far from everything - hideout place. Very high price.

Response from Gary L, Owner at Watercolours Studios
Responded 25 Feb 2020
Thank you for your review and feedback. The wifi issue was as a direct result of the electricity loadshedding we are enduring in South Africa at the moment. Fortunately fibre cable i,s at this moment, being laid in our street - which will improve our ability to keep our wifi signal - even when we have unfortunate power cuts.

The stay at watercolours studios was amazing. First of all, we felt very welcome and like at home as soon as we arrived. The appartement was very beautiful with a great view on the sea, well furnished and decorated, clean and super confortable. It was the best accomodation we had in South Sudan and would definitely love to come back.

I booked a one night stay at Watercolour studios (studio 2) for my boyfriend's birthday and it was everything I wanted it to be and more. It is very secluded, sheltered by beautiful flowers and calming lavender. The sea views are absolutely breathtaking, you can enjoy your own private patio or sit by the pool. It was fantastic to climb onto the big rock and check out the road below and witness the waves. You can look out onto the view from bed! And the kitchen and bathroom is totally stunning, with an open plan feel. The shower even has a big window so you still have a view while showering! We had so much fun exploring the town and quint restaurants, including the tot museum. The host was so incredibly friendly which made the stay even more enjoyable. This place is honestly a gem!! I highly recommend it!
