“Away from the Hustle and Bustle in Camps Bay”
Reviewed May 6, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What a special property for my wife and I and son and his family - total of 8 with 4 adults and 4 kids ranging from 5-13yo. The correspondence with Rob and Clare was prompt and helpful. The villa was well equipped and the perfect location - 3 blocks to walk to the waterfront, grocery store and very easy in and out for touring. Rob offered a 7 passenger car for rent and we made full use of this convenience with no hassle. He also offered free transport from the airport to the villa and then back for our return.
The kitchen was well equipped (primarily used for breakfast) and bedding very comfortable. The living space was not lavish but appropriate for our family. There are several nice restaurants on the waterfront with easy access. There was maid service on thursday that came with the weekly rental. The villa fits in like a "nice neighborhood".
The week there was all we could ask for!!! The perfect "spot". You can"t go wrong!!! Enjoy!!

“Perfect spot for 3 generations”
Reviewed March 19, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We could not have picked a better place for us -- my husband and I, our daughter and her husband and our 2 grand children, ages 7 and 12. The house and location were perfect. A short walk to the beautiful beach, shops and restaurants was an easy stroll, the accommodations were immaculate and comfortable and Rob and Claire were wonderful, attentive hosts. We were glad to rent their car so we could get around at our convenience but it seemed we could have got to most places by public transport. If -- no, when! -- we get back to Camps Bay we would surely go here again.

“Amazing house, Amazing location, Amazing views, Amazing pool!!!”
Reviewed February 2, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Villa on the Bay is an absolutely stunning house. If you are looking at this listing and its available, do not waste time, book it up before it’s too late!! The location is ideal as you are less than a 5min walk to the beach / shops / bars / restaurants of camps bay. If you don’t fancy going down to the Bay it’s not a problem as you can relax in by the pool in the garden. Clair and Rob were extremely helpful and accommodated our every whim.

We look forward to seeing them again next year!! Thank you both again, George.

“Fantastic location and a beautiful home.”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This home was just perfect for our stay in Camps Bay. It is very comfy and relaxed and has everything you need for self catering. You are also just a couple of minutes walk from the fabulous strip of Camps Bays delightful cafés and restaurants....and also the local supermarket.
We didn't use the pool as it was already a little cool being May but it did look like a gorgeous place to relax.
We were 2 couples and a single and we all had privacy and our own bathrooms which was terrific.
Our hosts were delightful people and could not do enough to help us out with whatever we needed and were very helpful with information on great places to eat.
We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely home for your stay in Capetown.

“A Vacation in Itself”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was such a wonderful experience. Rob and Claire were nothing short of amazing and accommodating. The location was perfect: it was a 5 minute walk to the main Camps Bay strip along the beach, where there was a supermarket and plenty of restaurants and shops. The house was beautiful, and it was a mini vacation in itself. If Capetown wasn't such a beautiful place that I wanted to explore, I would have had no problem staying at the house for the entire duration of the trip. Not only did the house have a private pool and beautiful mountain views, it was packed with every necessity we could possibly think of...we even had a barbeque on the last night using the outdoor grill.

I really can't emphasize enough that this was a dream house. If you're looking for a vacation rental with access to everything you need that's also less than a 5 minute walk to the beach, then look no further!

Thank you again Rob and Claire for everything! Can't wait to come back one day.

“Absolutely brilliant!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed at the house for a week (wish we had booked it for longer). The week included our wedding day, which meant not only were there the 8 people staying at the house but we also entertained/had a lot of friends stopping by/having braai's (bbqs). Claire & Rob were wonderful hosts & made sure the pool, house were always spotless. We loved our stay & will definitely try to stay there the next time we visit Cape Town. Thank you!

“Superb, exceptional & beyond expectations stay!!!”
Reviewed February 5, 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.
