Bella Ev
Ranked #3 of 14 Muizenberg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 September 2007

I was in desperate need of a holiday, and Cape Town topped my list of places to go. The sea air and the beautiful mountain was just what I needed.

The moment I made my booking to stay at Bella Ev in Muizenberg, I knew this holiday was going to be unforgettable. I spoke to Mrs Sinclair, a warm, worldly woman with so much enthusiasm, I found it difficult to turn down her delightful invitation and description of her establishment.

When I arrived I was greeted with a breathtaking mountain view. Bella Ev is situated at the base of a mountain, and one is also lucky enough to have a view of the sea. Mrs Sinclair and her staff were wonderfully hospitable and helpful, taking a genuine interest in my trip and my stay in the city. It was an absolute pleasure to be greeted with such a hands-on owner! I was escorted to my bedroom, which was beautifully decorated, and I was delighted to find an en suite bathroom. I spent many luxurious nights soaking away my troubles in the spacious Victorian bathtub, before retiring to my king sized bed.

Every morning I enjoyed a delicious breakfast, specially prepared for me. Mrs Sinclair cooks very well, and often joined me for breakfast. We'd sit and chat about life, love and everything else! It was really great to interact with someone who showed so much interest in her guests. Her humour and anecdotes kept me laughing long after breakfast was over! I shall always carry her wise words and advice with me.

I love the sea, and in search of some serenity, I used to walk down to the beach everyday. It's only a 5-minute walk, and a great excuse to be outside in the sun. The fresh sea air truly is refreshing. I didn't have a car, but the train station was also just a walk away.

Restaurants are also very close to Bella Ev, and I ate out very often, but for an additional price per meal, Mrs Sinclair whipped up scrumptious dinners and/or lunches.

I also enjoyed mountain hikes, and many of the other guests staying at Bella Ev at the time, participated in various sports in the area, i.e. surfing, sailing, etc.

I spent a week at Bella Ev, enjoying the well-stocked library, stunning outside pool area, delicious meals and my luxurious room. But most of all, it was the warmth, hospitality and kindness of Mrs Sinclair and her staff that really made my stay completely blissful. Bella Ev has an old soul that makes her guests not want to leave. It's infused with the laughter and spirit of previous guests, and the memories of its owner.

Other guests staying there at the same time as me agreed that it was the best place they'd stayed in for a very long time, and made it a point to tell their friends, family members, and even complete strangers about Bella Ev!

The service I received was excellent. There was always someone willing to help and give me more information about whatever it was I was looking for.

I also feel like I made a friend for life. Mrs Sinclair and her kind spirit are very much like Bella Ev - worldy and full of life and love. We have kept in touch since I left, and her e mails always make me laugh, and to be honest, a little sad as well because I find myself longing for th comfort and security of Bella Ev. But my memories and pictures are enough to make me smile again, and remember how much I enjoyed my stay.

Affordable, beautiful, and full of spirit, Bella Ev is now my home away from home, and my ideal spot to relax, be pampered and completely unwind from the stresses of daily living.
