Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Camps Bay - Ocean's Sweep

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.

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 www.livingwiththelions.co.uk 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.

Beautiful family home

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything it promised. We hired it for a family holiday with 3 generations present to celebrate the wedding of our daughter. We had a pre and post wedding bbq for 30 people and there was plenty of space on the deck and inside. The kitchen was well equipped too for a large group.

The pool was clean and enjoyed by us all. We employed Philomena to help out with cleaning and tidying up. She was a delightful person and a pleasure to have around. Charl, the manager, was also a charming character and responded to our queries quickly.

The property has some steep stairs leading to it which my 86 year-old mum struggled with.

We highly recommend this property.

A 5 Star rating for a positive attitude!

  • 5 of 5

I am fortunate enough to be able to spend a lot of time travelling !

At times circumstances, not of one’s fault, make it difficult to keep arrangements as planed and one is obliged to cancel or alter bookings as originally planned!

This can cost a lot !

This occurred with a booking I made with Patrick Arnold for his house in Camp’s Bay !

After having transferred the funds to Patrick, the airline changed the flight schedule which made it difficult for me to be in CT on the set day.

Patrick accepted my good faith and thanks to his goodwill, he found a solution which avoided a loss of important funds for my group!

I wanted to mention this! It’s good to know that you are dealing with a real “ gentleman“!

On my next trip I hope to stay in Patrick’s lovely house which is so well situated !

Nearest Airport

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!
