About Shirley Engers
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.
Shirley Engers purchased this Villa in 1988
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.

Close to beach, shopping and restaurants
Very good for families and groups of friends
Our family of 7 had a wonderful stay at Shirley’s beach house. Although being almost winter it wasn’t beach weather we enjoyed the fabulous location close to the beautiful beach and some bracing walks . The restaurants and cafes in Camps Bay were excellent and just a short walk which was ideal as we didn’t need to drive. A great supermarket 5 minutes away was also very useful.
Shirley was a superb host , helpful and friendly, the staff were lovely and there was a birthday cake waiting for our arrival- we were really touched by this gesture. We had a superb time exploring Capetown and the surrounding area - the only problem was we didn’t have longer to stay. It was a wonderful start to our 2 week holiday in South Africa and I would highly recommend a visit . Thank you again Shirley
Lovely hostess and staff, incredible location, huge bedrooms and baths and absolutely the best equipped vacation rental I have ever stayed in. It was more akin to staying with friends than a rental. Endless thoughtful touches.
It was an absolute pleasure hosting Melissa and her friends. They were such lovely, easy-going guests, and looked after our house with such love and care. I can highly recommend them to any establishment. I sincerely hope that they will come back and visit us again one day.
Amazing space in beautiful part of the world. Shops and restaurants and beach right there!
It was an absolute pleasure to host Pascal and his lovely family.
We do hope they will come back and visit us again one day!
I can highly recommend them to any establishment.
Great accommodation & location in Camps Bay
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!!!
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.
