“Spectular Villa”
Reviewed 20 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Shubha the owner is wonderful, we had the pleasure of meeting her on the day of our arrival which happened to be a wet one, but thankful the rest of our stay was sunny and dry. The villa is wonderful and the welcome basket left for us December birthday girls was lovely - thank you.
The villa is clean, very modern, and comfortable. The bedrooms where spectacular. The views from the pent house are truly breath taking. We stayed in the V&A for the 1st week and got all the site seeing done then so that we could enjoy the villa and all it had to offer for the rest of our stay in Cape Town.

10 minute walk down to the beach and the shop. We walked to Sea Point which took about 30-40 minutes and got a taxi back as needed a visit to the bottle store. The Pick and Pay in Camps Bay has most things you need for your stay, the only disappointing thing about Camps Bay is that there is no bottle store.

The villa has everything you need for your stay. The beds in the villa are wonderful and comfortable. The TV in the pent house did not work during our stay but to be honest we did not really miss it as we spent our evening playing board games or just enjoying the views from the balcony.

We had use of the whole villa as were a party of 7 for most of the stay. The gym is an added touch to the villa.

I would stay here again as the villa is fantastic and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Thank you so much! It was lovely to meet your family and we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay and that your second birthday sister was able to join. Apologies for the satellite TV in the Penthouse. It turned out to be a simple problem with the setting on the satellite decoder. I'm glad the main TV worked during your stay, although it sounds like you didn't need it much. We really hope you will stay at Aquatic Villa (or House or Penthouse) on a future visit to Cape Town!

“Villa Perfection”
Reviewed 3 December 2016 for a stay in October 2016

From the minute I contacted Shubha, throughout all our correspondence, to our arrival, and finally to our stay in Villa Maxima and Aquatic Villa everything was perfection. We could not have asked for a more professional and competent yet warm and understanding host than Shubha. I felt like I met my most amazing best friend I could count on. And I haven't even begun to gush about beautiful Aquatic Villa. It is indeed Cape Stunning conveniently nestled in luxurious Camps Bay with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and majestic Table Mountain and 12 Apostles. Our vacation was a reunion of 5 couples. Aquatic Villa was perfect for this with the privacy all ensuite bedrooms offered us. All rooms were created equally in that every bedroom had an advantage of location, although there were two gem bedrooms that stood a notch above the rest. The modern decor was warm and inviting balanced by the muted colors and floor to ceiling windows bringing the stunning outdoors inside. This was vacation perfection. Did I say what a pleasure owner Shubha was to deal with? The best deal EVER all around. Thank you very much Shubha. I cannot say enough about you and your stunning villa! Thank you for your thoughtfulness and kindness.

Wow, thank you so much Tina!! Although we have yet to meet in person, I feel like we got to know each other and even had a few laughs together via email and whats'app! You were wonderful and thoughtful guests and we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay. Maybe when you return to South Africa next time our new project will be finished. We'll keep in touch!

“Just spectacular. There are no other words....”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed as a family of five for 10 days in September. This is a truly spectacular house and we all enjoyed every minute of it. The views over the bay are awesome and there are plenty of places to eat within a short distance.

The one thing that really stood out and impressed me was the fact that there was tea, coffee, sugar and milk available when we arrived. After a long flight you often feel like sitting down and relaxing with a coffee and not traipsing off to find a shop to buy some. Little touches like that get noticed by me.

All in all, the house is lovely, it's clean, it's modern, it's comfortable. It's a short drive to Hout Bay to get your groceries from the Spar (don't bother with Pick n Pay in Camps Bay - that's an awful place) and it ticks all the right boxes for a base from which to launch a holiday in Cape Town.

If I was to have one little moan, it'd be that beautiful bath in the pictures. Neither myself, nor my wife could manage to get any more than luke warm water into it. I couldn't grasp this as 6 foot away, the shower produces blistering hot water. It's probably something we were doing wrong.

Would I go back? I most certainly would. Any day I had the chance. If you get the opportunity to stay in this beautiful home, jump at it. You won't regret it.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! You were lovely guests and we hope to welcome you again next time you plan a trip to Cape Town. Thank you also for the feedback regarding the bathtub water in one of the bedrooms. I haven't heard that from other guests, so I asked our staff to check on it. It is getting hot water, so perhaps it was a temporary issue - maybe some temporary blockage at the mixer. I'm sorry you weren't able to enjoy it during your stay, but maybe a good reason to come back soon? :-)

Kind Regards,
Shubha

“Fabulous home in the perfect location!”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I and three adult children rented Aquatic Villa in Camps Bay at the end of June for three nights. It was everything we expected from the pictures and description plus much more. The house and views take your breathe away, absolutely beautiful! The best rental we have ever had on vacation. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a fabulous home to stay in at Camps Bay!

“Architectural Beauty, Natural Splendor”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Breathtaking home with polished white marble floors and contemporary white and neutral furnishings, top of the line fixtures and outstanding views of Table Mountain directly behind the home and Lions Head to the side with the ocean and Camps Bay town directly below. Sunsets and sunrises on the terrace with plunge pool were gorgeous. We rented the two master bedroom, two level penthouse only for my husband and me and our two teenaged sons. Luxurious stay in every way from our arrival by glass elevator to the penthouse, to the spacious open kitchen, dining and living rooms with glass walls/doors that slide fully open for indoor/outdoor flow to the peaceful, large bedrooms and beautiful baths. We could not have been happier with this home or our host who provides excellent local advice in a notebook. Housecleaner and groundskeeper couple very pleasant and helpful. Check in and check out a breeze. We walked from the home down the hilly streets to the oceanfront for coffee and along the Bay to other coves for exercise. Laundry facilities in basement came in handy. Enjoyed day trips to vineyards, Hout Bay market, Cape Point. Drive to V&A waterfront an easy 15 min and Table Mountain only 5-10 minutes. Highly recommended.
