Guestbook comments from the owner

"Immaculate, state of the art, yet homely with all electrical appliances/Dstv. The best about this little gem is the location and spectacular views of the ocean and mountain. Litterally 10min to the V&A; Water front, city centre and freeways. Truly enjoyed our stay and will be back Vicky. " Louis Wolfaardt George


Left on 08/06/2013 for a stay in July 2013

We recently spent a few days in Cape Town for our granddaughter's first birthday and needed to stay somewhere comfortable and convenient to get around. As most of us are aware, booking accommodation online is pretty much like a 'blind date' - you never know what is waiting for you upon arrival. We were delighted with our apartment. The location is perfect, the apartment is comfortable, clean and sunny - it makes you smile when you walk in. It has a lovely braai facility on the balcony with a splendid view. Although the weather was absolutely dreadful we did manage to get in one braai while gazing over the ocean agai

Excellent property with breathtaking vista.

  • 5 of 5

Panorama Cottage was an excellent choice for us as a couple and an ideal base for visiting the numerous attractions of the western cape - Cape Town, The Waterfront, Winelands, Cape Point etc etc. It was well equipped and had all the facilities that we needed . We particularly enjoyed our sun downers, on the balcony with the breathtaking vistas of Table Mountain and Lions Head behind and Camps Bay and the ocean below. As I have a business in the UK, it was important to have a strong reliable WiFi and this was the case, Vicky proved an excellent host.

Our favourite restaurant in Camps Bay was the Codfather for atmosphere and excellent seafood. We left the hire car and used Uber for and evening out at the V&A Waterfront. It took around 15 minutes at a cost of 70 Rand.

We have no hesitation in recommending Panorama Cottage.

Enjoyed our stay at Camps Bay Cottage enormously

  • 5 of 5

Camps Bay Cottage met all our needs and more during our stay there. It is very well furnished and equipped and extremely secure and includes a garage for safe parking. It is well maintained and cleaners visit regularly and do a good job. Camps Bay is a beautiful suburb of Cape Town in the shadow of Table Mountain and about a 20 minute drive from the Waterfront. If you don’t have your own wheels Uber seems to be the way to get around but I would strongly recommend car hire for the duration of your stay. If you only intend to stay local then another alternative is the hop on hop off bus service which runs from the seafront and is only about a 15 minute walk away. There are some fantastic restaurants within walking distance of the property and we particularly enjoyed the Hussar Grill (best steak I’ve ever tasted) and The Cod Father (superb seafood).

Vicky, the owner, was very helpful from the outset. Before we arrived she kept us informed and provided detailed instructions on how to get there from the airport. As it turned out we were late arriving because the airline had lost our luggage. Nevertheless, Vicky went out of her way, not just to be there to welcome us but she’d also bought us some basic toiletries to last us until our luggage arrived 24 hours later. We were most grateful too for the welcoming bottle of wine.

All in all we had a wonderful fortnight in Camps Bay. There is so much to see and do in and around Cape Town and Camps Bay Cottage was the perfect base for us, enabling us to enjoy a memorable holiday. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and relatives and would happily return there in the future.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for 4 nights and could have stayed another month! The property is beautiful and secure with views that can't be beat. Vicky was excellent to work with, very attentive and kind. Because the cottage is on the hill it is quiet and the views are breathtaking, but it is close enough to enjoy all that Camps Bay has to offer. We used it as home base to travel to wine country, Simons Town, Table Mountain, Lions Head, and enjoy a last day on the beach. It was nice to also have the washer and dryer as well as a garage for the car, Vicky leaves beach chairs and toys to use which was great for our beach day. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

Excellent property in great location

  • 5 of 5

A great stay from start to finish. Vicky our host was reliable and attentive to all our needs. The property is in a great location away from the hustle and bustle of Camps Bay but close enough to enjoy all its delights. We would walk down to the beach and get a taxi back as we have a three year old and its up hill home. We used Uber and taxis cost less than £1.50 doing this. The house is lovely , very cleaned and well equipped. The beds have nice linen and mattresses very comfy.The roof terrace can be quite magical sitting watching the sunset or early morning. The property is serviced twice a week whihc is a bonus. All the restaurants are great for different reasons and as the rand was so good we did not eat in at all. There is masses to do locally. We spent New Years Day having lunch at Dunes Cafe at Hout Bay and walking up to the harbour to see the resident seals. A great holiday and fab host. We would definately book this place again.

Delightful stay.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable 5weeks in Panorama Cottage this year. The property is well situated above Camps Bay and within a pleasant walk to the centre. Views over the Bay, Table Mountain and Signal Hill. The interior is well appointed, clean and bright. The swimming pool is well maintained and quiet. The rooftop patio area is secluded with a good view. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. One small maintenance matter was attended to within a couple of hours. We are booked to return next year. Thank you to Vicky.

Perfection! My husband and I stayed at Vicky's Camps Bay Cottage for a week in Nov 2015. Vicky kept in touch with us via email and sent us perfect updated directions due to construction in the area. She was waiting for us when we arrived (there was a welcome gift basket with goodies) and gave us a tour of the property. The balcony provided us with a breathtaking view of the city below and the ocean. The Cottage was located in an upscale neighborhood and was completely safe with not only a gate but also 2 locked doors for entry. The Cottage is part of a group of attached apartments. It is an end unit with views of the ocean. We never heard any noise from the neighbors. There is both a single parking garage and an outdoor space so parking was never an issue. The apartment was clean and provided all of the essentials. The bed was extremely comfortable and the white linens were divine! Bathroom was very clean and Vicky had left soap and shampoo that was to die for!!! Probably THE MOST IMPORTANT FACT was that wifi was perfect. Cape Town can be very spotty with their wifi but we were always able to connect with loved one's when we returned home every evening. The kitchen looked like it had all of the essentials but truthfully we never ate at home once. The food in Cape Town is soooo cheap that it didn't make sense to waste the effort of cooking our own meals. But there is a grocery right down the street where you can purchase anything. There are also numerous restaurants located a few minutes away. Along with the restaurants, there are stores located on what I would call a "strip" along the beach. Perfect for walking and enjoying the sunshine. The location could not have been better for all the major attractions. Camps Bay reminded me of San Francisco. Hilly with breathtaking views and beaches. Cape Town center was more of a city. I would recommend staying at the Cottage to anyone interested in staying in a luxury area away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Check out was a breeze with Vicky trusting us to just leave the key!
