A CONTEMPORARY HOME WITH A POOL A MINUTE FROM CAMPS BAY BEACH

Camps Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 large bedrooms and bathrooms, all round sea views and a nice warm-covered pool

The Best holiday home! We have owned it for 9 years now and whilst our lives have changed with the addition of young children to our family, our holidays have just got better every year. The house is very large with about 250 M2 of space internally and a different balcony or patio for each day of the week! Its perfect for entertaining or just chilling out!

Downstairs there are two lounges, one with the TV and DVD set up, the other based around a fireplace with the dining room leading off behind. The kitchen is fully fitted and has a breakfast bar area as well.

The master bedroom is huge with a sumptuous en suite bathroom, there is another two en-suite bedrooms and then two shared bathrooms for the third double and twin bedded room.

Outside, the ten metre pool has has a grass surround at the lower lever with the larger larger upper level laid as patio for barbecues, easting outdoors or just enjoying the beautiful sunsets!

Plus an auto-double garage and full security ADT throughout

Bedroom no 5: We are now able to offer the house as a five bedroom house which can sleep 12 adults or children plus the additional use of a travel cot. The great thing about it is that the house is big enough to accommodate this number thanks to its huge living areas both inside and outside the house. The prices we advertise however do not include the use of the 5th bedroom because we know that the average number of guests is between 4-8 people and so to assume parties of 12 would make it too expensive for for smaller groups to consider. So if you require a big house for family or friends this is definitely for you!

To explain fully, the 'new' 5th bedroom used to be the maids room, accessed only from the rear patio but it now has direct access from the breakfast room. So while it has its own ensuite shower room (the 5th bathroom in the house) it would be the only room without direct views of either the sea or the mountain. But it remains a decent double bedroom so please don't be put off using it

Beautiful family holiday home

  • 5 of 5
We fell in love with this house. It was perfect for our family as the room inside and out allowed us to spread out and have our own space. The property was exactly as described and was well equipped. The restaurants, cafes, beach and all that Camps Bay has to offer was just a short walk away. The walk back up the hill let's you burn off those calories consumed! It was wonderful to cool off in the pool in the afternoon and then watch the stunning sunsets from the patio with a glass of (South African) wine. The view of table mountain to the rear isn't bad either! This house offers lovely, large clean accommodation and is well positioned to enjoy all that the Cape Town has to offer.

Good location, basic but definitely not luxurious

  • 3 of 5
This rental was less than "luxurious" as was described (it seems as if the description has now changed since we stayed), and the amenities were not as described. The house felt "tired." Be careful of this rental if you are not British or South African. The owner had difficulty with exchange rates and is set up only to work with these two currencies. On the good side, the house is very spacious with good views from many of the rooms. Lots of room outside the house, and good kitchen/dining space. Internet access was very strong and that was an important point for us. Owner responds quickly. Less desirable: the description indicated that there were five bedrooms, but we were shown only four as one is often used for storage. We expected four showers, however, there were only two stand up showers with hot water. One runs only cold water & one is a hand shower in a bathtub. The house is in need of repair; the paint on the ceilings was coming/wearing off, the shower curtain rod in the master bath is cheap and fell each time the curtain was drawn, and the towels, sheets, etc. are old and very used--not "luxurious" by any means. No soap or toilet paper in bathrooms; caretaker and cleaning lady had to contact owner to authorize purchase of them even tho they were listed as amenities. It felt like a struggle to get any "basic" items. We understood this to be self-catering, but soap and toilet paper should be standard and furnished in a "luxurious house." A misunderstanding regarding the daily cleaning service was costly, so be very explicit with the owner about how this is done. We ended up paying out of pocket for two days of cleaning IN ADDITION TO the cleaning fee after our stay. The contract stated one price and the owner said we needed to pay a different price. We had to argue with the owner to reduce the cleaning to the contracted amount. The other issue we had with this property is that the owner wanted the deposit early in Sept. for the house we rented in the first part of February, with full payment due 4 weeks before we arrived. In general, we found this rental to be highly challenging because we were not British or South African. I suggest that if you choose to rent this property, be VERY explicit with all details of the rental, cleaning, and general amenities.

Spacious and Lovely home in the heart of Camps Bay

  • 4 of 5
Lovely 4 + bedroom executive home in the heart of Camps Bay SA. Situated on a lovely hillside overlooking the bay-a 10 minute stroll away, yet Table Top Mountain and downtown Capetown are less than a 15 minute drive away. House was suitably clean and kept that way by the optional daily maid/cleaning service.
The home was well equipped and quite comfortable for up to 10 people sharing accommodation. Represents excellent value for the money. Would gladly revisit, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to other large parties looking for accommodation in or around the Capetown area.

wonderful & spacious family destination

wonderful & spacious family destination
  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks in early March at the "Ocean Sweep" for a fantastic holiday in Camps Bay/Cape Town. As other reviewers have noted, the house is extremely large and very comfortable for groups and families -- we were 5 adults and 2 children and significantly appreciated the size of all bedrooms, bathrooms and living space. There are wood floors throughout the main floor which were great for the kids to play. We loved the outdoor patio with BBQ and pool for cooking, enjoying wine and watching the spectacular sunsets.

The owner, Patrick, is extremely friendly and communicative - he even organised cleaning for the week, which was a wonderful additional luxury. He and his family also use the house so he makes every effort to keep it in good working order (with the help of a local property mgmt company).

The house has a large two car garage and we believe a car is definitely needed for the stay, both to explore the city and to take runs for groceries, etc. Yes, the walk to/from the beach is quite strenuous but it required exercise for all the eating we seemed to do!

All in all a great holiday in a stunning city from a very functional home.

A fabulous house!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with friends during half term and had the most wonderful holiday.
The house is incredibly spacious both inside and out (great terrace and pool) with a very practical open plan layout downstairs, which made it perfect for all the kids.
It is furnished contemporarily and comfortably and is brilliantly kitted out..
With the stunning backdrop of Table Mountain and the amazing seaview and sunsets, it is hard to imagine a better location from which to explore Cape Town and surrounding areas.

Camps Bay Good Times

  • 4 of 5
Searching for holiday accommodation online, on behalf of a larger group is easy in principle. You look through many pictures and choose the right house according to location, looks and budget. However, when setting off to your place of choice, your mind can start playing tricks on you as to if you made right decision for the group - were the pictures too flattering?, is it going to be big enough?, is everyone in the group going to like? it and so on

When we arrived at Oceans Sweep on the 26th Feb 2012, all those fears were put to rest instantly. It started with the perfect drive into Camps Bay, followed by arriving at the perfect holiday house we could have all hoped for.

Oceans Sweep is big, very big. The overall feel is one of relaxed luxury, the rooms were amazing with views of the ocean from all, but without doubt the most amazing aspect of the house is having a Braai/ BBQ on the deck, after a swim watching the sun go down with family and friends.
I don't believe now, that pictures do it enough justice. My only criticism and I have to stretch this a bit, is that the brief walk (5minutes) to the main Camps Bay stretch/ beach, is a bit to steep when walking back, after one or two cocktails

I recommend this place highly and hope to return soon

I am very glad you had a great time - you must have enjoyed the continued hot weather that we had earlier in the month. I am only sorry we cant help you get up the hill after those cocktails, though I guess you could take a taxi! Please come back, you will all be very welcome...

Car: recommended

The house is in Camps Bay which is no more than half an hour's drive from the airport. Once there it is just a short walk to the beach front with all the shops, bars and restaurants that make this area so famous and memorable. Camps Bay is then just a ten minute drive into Cape Town city centre of maybe 15 to the V&A Waterfront, Stellenboch is about half an hour for wine tasting, or Newlands for all the sporting occasions is the same. Cape Point is a little further, south, at 45 min but on the way you pass beautiful Chapmans Peak and Boulders, the home of the Cape's penguins. There are numerous golf courses all over which start at as little as R300 a round, tennis courts in Camps Bay and the western beaches are famous to surfers and windsurfers alike. Its all there, its just a question of getting out and getting on with it! I'm sorry to have removed contact numbers from this website but we have received too many sales calls by leaving on there. Happy to call you back if you enquire.

Other Activities: Table Mountain, Robben Island, cricket, rugby, football world cup, wine tasting

Golf: The nearest and most accessible golf course is Now Mowbray which you passed coming in from the airport and costs just R300. Call in good time and they will accommodate you into 4 balls if necessary.

There are very many other courses to play however!
