My husband and I were both born in Cape Town and lived here all our lives. We both went to the University of Cape Town. I am a retired school teacher specialising in special needs and Keith is still practising law. I travel to London once a year to visit my brother and sister who both live there.

Why Shirley Engers chose Camps Bay

We bought this house 25 years ago. Both my children were brought up in the house. They have both moved out now and for the last 15 years we have been running this once family home as a guest Villa.

What makes this villa unique

It is in the best postion in Camps Bay as you can walk everywhere. All guests who stay here feel very much at home as it has a wonderful relaxed feel about it and the house has so much charm and character. It is very safe for children and we also have a pool net.

Great accommodation & location in Camps Bay

  • 5 of 5

Nice house, immaculately clean and perfect bedding(and I am full of nonsense). We were 10 people(all family) and had a ball. 1 minute to Camps Bay beach, 4 minutes to Clifton beaches.

1 minute to supermarket and 10 min. to Cape Town Waterfront.

I will come and stay again!!!! Cleaning staff worth their weight in gold!!!

Wonderful location plus such lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed with our 2 daughters aged 8 and 5 and our parents. We found Shirley to be so lovely and accommodating. The villa was easily big enough with so many lovely en-suite bedrooms and kitchen facilities, and the main kitchen had every convenience you could wish for. Add in the great position, just 2 mins walk from the beach and Pick n Pay, some great Camps Bay weather and we had the most wonderful stay. Thank you.

Perfect Location in Camps Bay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived later in the evening to the villa after a long journey. We were very happy to be upgrated to a larger suite! The room was very clean and spacious with a lovely bathroom and outdoor sitting area. Our room overlooked the small yard and pool, which we took advantage of on a hot morning. There was also a fridge, dishes to prepare light breakfast or lunch. The best part was the location. The beach is a 1 min walk. There is a grocery store very close and many restaurants to choose from. We really enjoyed our short stay in Camps Bay and would reccomend this Villa to anyone!

We had a wonderful stay in this villa, which was very well appointed and close to the beach and shop, whilst being secluded and private. The owners and the daily staff made us feel most welcome.

The Bayleaf, Camps Bay

  • 5 of 5

We rented the whole house for 2 weeks and definitely made the right choice for our first visit to Cape Town. The property is extremely well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. The location is perfect with easy access to the beach, bars and restaurants of Camps Bay and only a short and very scenic drive to the waterfront, table mountain, city centre etc. The garden is very private with great views and we always felt safe and secure. Off-street parking is an added bonus. Our only disappointment was that the pool was too cold to use during our stay but had the weather been warmer this would not have been a problem. Finally, what makes this property really special are the owners, Shirley and Keith. They are very friendly and attentive and are always happy to help with any problems or give advice if you are not familiar with the region.

Relax at The Bayleaf

  • 4 of 5

I and my cousin have stayed at The Bayleaf for 2/3 weeks pretty well every February/March for the last 10 years or so. I think that says it all.
