“TRIED TO MOVE US TO ANOTHER PROPERTY”
Reviewed 20 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

This is a nice villa close to the beach in Camps Bay. We had a confirmed booking from August with deposit paid and in late November they reconfirmed the booking and the owners Rob & Claire also said we could take the villa a day earlier than booked. We made the final payment (on time) and immediately after in early December they contacted us to say there was a double booking with AIRBNB and they were moving us to another property. We did not want to move. They only agreed to honour the booking after I indicated to them the name of senior exec in Trip Advisor who is family friend and that I would ask him to sort it out. However they refused to honour their agreement for us to check in a day early and as a result we had to rent another property last minute in Camps Bay incurring an additional cost of E500. The villa is lovely, well maintained and with a nice pool although previous reviews mention that the owners live next door however they actually live in another house built in the garden with connecting doors/windows to the villa and its garden which we found to be an unusual arrangement. The property is obviously listed on other rental sites so be careful with your booking.

We are highly surprised to get a 2 star review as we have had over 50 5 star reviews. Everyone apart from this family has raved about our villa.These guests were unfairly critical and demanding mainly due to fact that we suggested another villa as we had a pool problem which is now solved.
The cottage next door is completely separate and does not encroach at all. Separate entrance in another road. In fact most guests like the security of having someone nearby to attend to their needs. We feel their rating is completely inaccurate. The villa is highly rated on other websites as we maintain the villa to an extremely high standard to way above a mere 2 star rating which is ludicrous.

“Great location and good facilities.”
Reviewed 14 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Located very near to all the restaurants & bars in Camps Bay - Villa on the Bay was a good choice for our party of four couples. There was a great entertaining area by the pool with barbecue facilities if required. An honesty bar was advertised but not in situ which can be a problem in “dry” Camps Bay. More electricity sockets needed in bedrooms, especially near to mirrors for the ladies but apart from that a super place to stay.

Villa on the Bay. We do have drinks available if needed but clients did not ask. We will put more plugs in for guests. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

“Super Location, nice place”

Loved the location, few mins walk to the beach and strip on camps bay. The place is spacious - we were 5 adults and a 1yr old. The pool is great with enough outdoor space to all relax after a day out in Cape Town. Made use of the kitchen and brai several times! Really nice place and would highly recommend - the bar area is also good for some early evening pre drinks

“Great place for a family in CT”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had a wonderful 4 nights stay at Villa on the Bay. The owners were readily available to answer any questions before our trip and during our stay. It also helps that they live next door in case anything comes up.
The house is even nicer in person, spacious and very comfortably accommodated our family with three younger kids with an extra room to spare. Great location - a very short walk to the supermarket and the restaurants. The house has a locking gate, alarm and security system, so no issues safety-wise. Would definitely stay again.
