A contemporary home with a pool a minute from Camps Bay Beach

Bedrooms 5
Space 2,690 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 14 nights


About the property

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

The Best holiday home! We have owned it for 14 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, eating 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.

This place is absolutely amazing. The house/villa is perfectly situated and easy to get to many places around Cape Town.

The views are absolutely brilliant from the house. My favourite was watching the sun setting into the open sea right in front of me. Definitely the best way to send your evenings (with a lovely glass of wine in your hand :-) )

The house itself is in very good condition, clean, smart and well cared for. You feel very relaxed there.

Patrick (the owner), Charl (999 in your right hand) and the cleaning ladies all are so helpful and supportive and will all go to great lengths to make sure you have a stress free holiday.

Have I mentioned the SPACE... it is such a spacious place. It does not show in the pictures but you will be pleasantly surprised on arrival.

We hired a car and collected it from the airport, and that was handy coz it gave us the freedom to drive down the coast and visit place like Boulders Bay and Gordon's bay, so that's a good idea.

The security is really good as well, you really feel safe.

Camps Bay is a lovely place as well as easy to get around. From the villa, its just 10 minutes stroll to the shops and bars (ladies, there is a nail salon, hair salon, massage place just down by the traffic lights in the building on the right).

But best of all, the beach is just 10 minutes stroll from the house, how brilliant is that.

We went as a big family, 9 adults and 3 children, and we all loved it. The kids absolutely loved the space and the swimming pool and most of all the beach.

We would all 100% recommend this house/villa.

We will also be returning soon xxx

Owner's Response: Hi guys - we are so pleased that you had such a great time. I shall pass this on to Charl and Philomina who will also be thrilled. We do our best to keep the house in good condition and the recent additions of things like the pergola seem to really be working. You would be most welcome to come again - please keep in touch. All the best Patrick and Sarah

Good size and amenities but needs some TLC in quite a few areas

  • 3 of 5

The staff and property manager were on hand when needed which was good as the dishwasher blew up on day 1! Accommodation standard was ok but needs a lick of paint everywhere and new curtains in some of the bedrooms to actually block light out. On the whole a pleasant stay

ocean sweep, camps bay, cape town

  • 5 of 5

We came from Boston to visit our daughter studying at the University this semester. We had never been to Cape Town and were blown away by its beauty. We also have never rented from VRBO, and our experience was perfect! I would highly recommend this house. It was great for the college kids to come over and hang! We barbecued one evening and had a lovely meal out on the patio. From almost every bedroom one can lie in bed and see the beautiful ocean. The breath taking mountains are above us, and we used uber for all of our transportation. The walk down to the village of Camps Bay was easy and we often went to dinner there. Recommend Cod Father for a delicious fish is at the bottom of Camps Bay Road to the right.

The staff was five star. We welcomed back beautiful Philomena who just arrived from maternity leave. We saw photos of her new baby Chloe, and her 8 year old daughter Natalie. Her cousin, Precious took good care of us in the mean time as we had her over to freshen the house a few times. Charl, the house manager, checked in with us routinely...and was very very receptive when the hair dryer blew! We could not have been given better attention. The kindness and attention to detail from all was exemplary.

The pool was chilly but swimmable...the house is set up for a large crowd and very "kid" friendly...with a high chair and crib if needed. There are plenty of bathrooms, and lots of open space along with large tables for dining. The only advice I would give to a large group is that there is a washing machine but no dryer. So plan accordingly as it will take a day for laundry to wash if the sun is not out.

We hope to return with our elder daughter some day. We will miss this place as it is a secret jewel. Thank you to Patrick as well for being so receptive about the need for WIFI. It too was seamless...and both my husband and I were able to keep our businesses going from six hours away and two continents. Had that not worked in the manner they had promised, we would have experienced high stress.

Sadly we leave today, and again, Charl was incredibly generous about making sure we had no pressure getting out of here. I cannot say enough about how happy , delightful, and comfortable our stay was here in Paradise.

Owner's Response: Hi Sara, We are so pleased that you had a such a nice time. I hope being September it wasn't too cool, it can be lovely in the springtime but the pool doesn't really warm up for bathing in the water! It sounds like you made full use of the house and the area so I am really pleased, and you met Philomina too. Take care and we hope you will visit us again Patrick and Sarah, Charl and Philomina

Fantastic House in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 nights in this wonderful house. Extermely large and spacy with all the comforts you would want. Charl the caretaker couldn't have been more helpful and went out of his way to assist with our stay both before and after our stay. Was always on call for any issues. Philomenia the housemaid was also a great addition to our stay. Both people really made our stay more enjoyable. House is very secure with alarm system so nothing to worry about. About 800 meters walk down to the Camps Bay shopping area/restaurnats. (excellent choices) 8 days - too much to do - will return again another day. TIP - if you are coming to Cape Town/South Africa - bring your old clothes you do not need anymore and give them to the people that you could really help out!!!! They are very grateful for anything you can give.

Owner's Response: What a lovely idea to gift things you don't need anymore. We organise school sports tours at and the schools do the same thing with their old cricket and rugby kit in SA and other countries, but I have never considered that for a family holiday (but we will next time). SO glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you again soon Patrick and Sarah

Great location and superbly equipped

  • 5 of 5

We have stopped in many houses in South Africa and Ocean View was amongst the very best. We were only 5 people so had lots of room and this place would be ideal for groups up to 10. Views of sea and mountains and benefits from good outside sun bathing areas and pool. House well equipped and great for children as quite open plan so not constrained. Charl the local manager very helpful and stand in maid Charity very efficient.

Location is excellent and safe for SA and we walked down to the coast road and caught taxi back up.

Would definitely return when friends join us in Camps Bay again.

Nearest Airport
15 Kilometres
Cape Town International
Nearest Motorway
4 Kilometres
Cape Town
Nearest Beach
400 Metres
Camps Bay Beach
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!
