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

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

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!
A great find!
With friends, we stayed at the Cottage for our final few days following our tour along the Garden Route. Cottage is in an excellent location and with stunning views of the Camps Bay beach & Table Mountain (12 Apostles). Please note for anyone with any walking difficulties, there is quite an uphill walk from the beach but there is a bus service which you can pick up from the end of the road. Camps Bay has excellent restaurants & bars. Vicky was a great host & very hospitable. The cottage is well equipped, both in terms of the kitchen and maps / books left for "things to do / places to visit". An added bonus was a secure car parking space. Would certainly recommend, and if we should re-visit, would definitely book here again. This is our 3rd visit to SA, so feel certain we will be back again. Can´t fault it.
Excellent apartment and host
A well equipped apartment, in an excellent location with assistance when needed from a well-informed and friendly host.
The apartment was light and airy. Everything we needed was there and it all worked. The walk to the beach was fine, and car access to cape Town was easy. (As easy, and without parking hassle, was access to a good bus service).
A very happy stay.
The view from the balcony was magnificent. The sound of the waves could be heard at all times.
The property was comfortable, and had all facilities like a DVD player etc.
Loved the little touches such as a pack of cookies on arrival, and also the once a week cleaning service.
The property has mountain views on the one side, including a view of the cable cars, and a beach view on the other, as far as nature is concerned it felt like being in paradise.
