“Superb, exceptional & beyond expectations stay!!!”
Reviewed 6 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

From the time of making the initial reservation, to the final day of leaving, I as well as the group of Argentinian friends I was with, received nothing less than exceptional service from Rob & his wife Claire. This means from returning my emails to making sure we were happy& comfortable whilst there. The house itself is fantastically situated, literally TWO blocks or less that five minutes walk from the beach, and even nearer to the supermarket. It's a spacious house for a group of eight. The house is well-kept, especially with Clara and Shadrack coming in at least once a week to maintain the place. Clara taking care of the inside and Shadrack the beautiful garden and pool and entertainment area. What struck us as amazing was the fact that even little details such as charcoal and matches were left available near the "braai" (barbecue for the non-South Africans) area, and some basic spices etc in the kitchen. Basically NOTHING was lacking at the house. I, as well as the group of Argentinians with me, would like to express our sincere gratitude to Rob & his wife Claire for making our stay at Villa on the Bay such a wonderful experience. Guaranteed I'll be back, with more friends from Argentina, and stay at this wonderful "family-orientated" holiday home.

Thanks for looking after our villa so well during your stay. We always like to please our guests and make sure their holiday is a dream vacation. Summer is the best time as the beach vibe is fabulous but winter can also be great as not so many crowds. We hope you will visit us again soon.

“Fantastic holiday villa recommended for great stay near beachfront”
Reviewed 27 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I stayed here with friends and had the most wonderful stay as the house is geared towards
visitors and everything is provided. We spent most evenings on the patio as it is covered and protected. Easy walk down to fabulous restaurants and beach. Luxury interior and decor is very upmarket. Area is extremely safe and we walked down to cafes even at night.

“A perfect base to explore Cape Town with everything on your doorstep.”
Reviewed 19 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Having just returned from a wonderful holiday and wedding in Cape Town, I would like to express our gratitude to the owners, Claire and her husband for making our stay most welcoming and comfortable. Villa on the Bay is a well established otriginal villa in Camps Bay. This house catered for all our needs including a secure pool and play area for our 3 year old son, perfect sun bathing deck and garden for the older guests (20 yrs+). It is a stone's throw from the main strip and you feel very secure walking around. The house has 3 bedrooms upstairs and 1 downstairs. 2 upstairs have on suites and the master bedroom is pretty impressive. Wonderful views. The bedroom downstairs has a shower room that can be used as an "own bathroom" so all in all we all were catered for. The kitchen was very well equipped but with the wonderful restaurants on our doorstep we were spoilt for choice. This house also has the most amazing sitting and dining area under cover but outside downstairs and the braii was used at least twice in our week's stay. All in all I would highly recommend this to anyone for proximity to Camp's Bay main drag, and a hop on the red bus tour takes you to all the places you need to go but yet having that holiday resort on your doorstep during the days that you are not doing major sight seeing. Thank you again, you were very hospitable and we hope to come and rent again.
