Villa Barbara is the perfect apartment for a couple wishing to explore the wonders of the Cape peninsula. It is ideally situated above Camps Bay, with its wide selection of bars and restaurants. Central Cape Town is 10 minutes drive (Ubers are plentiful and very cheap). The rest of the peninsular and the wine regions are conveniently reached by car.
The apartment is extremely well appointed with everything you could possibly need. What makes it particularly special are the glorious views of the Atlantic, Camps Bay, the Lion's Head, Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles, either through the ceiling to floor windows or from the various terraces and the pool.
The owners, Helen and Seumas, were fantastic hosts, but in no way intrusive. My crown fell out and Helen managed to arrange a dental appointment for me within the hour.
We were sorry to leave and would not hesitate in recommending Villa Barbara as the ideal holiday destination.
Flat exceeded our expectations. Gorgeous views, fantastic layout, very private, large, clean and modern, nothing more you could ask for, even the families resident dogs and cat were charming . The hosts were great and even helped us out with a ride downtown after experiencing a problem with our Uber app. Hubby is not to keen on B and B and now has a new opinion of them following this stay. Totally recommended and can't wait to return.
We had a truly wonderful stay at Villa Barbara. The views from our Villa were simply beautiful. The Villa was very well equipped and very clean. Helen and Seumas were absolutely wonderful, they could not do enough for you to make your stay simply perfect. They really spoiled us including having us to dinner on our last evening due to our late night flight schedule. Thank you so much Helen it was delicious and we much appreciated it.
The Villa is very well situated for visiting Cape Town and the surrounding area. Table mountain practically on your doorstep. If we were to ever visit South Africa again Villa Barbara would definitely be our choice of accommodation. Thank you so much Helen & Sheumus for your kindness and wonderful hospitality. Wishing you both the very best for the future. Debbie and Tom
We felt right at home. The apartment is comfortably furnished with lots of space to relax and you will never tire of the fantastic view. Helen and Seumas are lovely and very helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Villa Barbara was completely amazing!!! The view was amazing...Helen was a sweetheart, totally helpful. The villa was very private, clean and was perfectly furnished. I would definitely book a stay at Villa Barbara again
We were so delighted with our choice of Spectacular Villa Barbara for the first 9 nights of our South African holiday. The location is ideal, with unbelievable views of Camps Bay, the Lion’s Head and Table Mountain with the colours gradually going through various shades of gold, amber and red in the evening sun. It is perfect for access to the city and also all the attractions further east – we enjoyed visiting Llandudno, Chapman’s Peak Drive, Boulders (penguins) , Betty’s Bay (even more penguins) , Kleinmond, the Constantia vineyards and Kirstenbosch Gardens during our stay. It’s just all so easy to get to. And if you feel like a serious walk, the Table Mountain National Park with all its genuine wilderness and hiking trails is within about 400 metres of the door.
Helen and Seumus were very gracious and kind hosts and made us feel relaxed and completely at home from the moment we arrived. We were a little concerned about Camp’s Bay’s hills as my wife has restricted mobility and finds steps tricky, but the villa’s gondola was a life saver, effortlessly transporting guests, luggage, wheelchair, shopping etc up the 40 or so steps to the apartment
The duplex apartment itself is huge for two people, well appointed and very private, with its own pool, terrace and barbecue area. We especially enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony outside the bedroom. The ever smiling Georgina keeps everything clean and tidy for you and will do laundry too if needed during your stay. There is even a dedicated parking space for the apartment. We just loved our stay here and hope to return some day to explore more of this amazing region.
