“Beautiful Villa, in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 8 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Excellent holiday location, the villa is a perfect place to enjoy Camps Bay, and only 20 mins drive from Cape Town waterfront. First class cleaning service daily, and a wonderful private swimming pool. Ideal for discerning couples

“Honeymoon stay”
Reviewed 11 May 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed at Adriatic for a week during a 3 week honeymoon trip in January. Much has been said previously about the location, cleanliness and overall standard of the apartment, all of which is true as this was a fabulous holiday apartment, but not much has been said about all the effort the owners have taken in ensuring that guests feel secure, and this was a real plus for us. Camps Bay is a very upmarket area but still as a traveller abroad safety is a concern. You enter the apartment at street level through a lockable, metal concertina gate which takes you into a small area and another door, so if you are arriving home late at night, you can whizz through the door and be secure before you actually get inside. Through this door you go up a flight of stairs, past the owner's property and the other rental apartment on the premises. Immediately in front of you is Adriatic. There are lights outside which are operated by a sensor, so come on as soon as you (or anyone else) appears. There is a wall around the property which is topped with decorative but nontheless lethal spikes, and on top of that, an electric fence that runs round the property! All this security isn't apparent from the photos you see online, and before we arrived I was a bit nervous about staying a stand alone property, so if this is something that concerns you, definitely go for Adriatic as you will feel safe and secure. We slept with windows open which isn't something that's always recommended in South Africa. If you look at the other properties in the area you notice that not everyone goes to such effort. I asked the owner one day why there was such security at the apartment, and he replied that he wanted to ensure that guests felt as safe and secure as possible whilst on holiday, and I thought that was a really nice consideration. Adrian and Nada are really lovely hosts who were on hand to deal with any queries as quickly as possible, and it really felt that all round, they wanted their guests to have as pleasurable a stay as possible, not having to concern themselves with anything including worrying about security, especially at night. We loved it, it was a fabulous place, hosted by lovely people in a really nice area. We hope to be back soon.

Liked best: The attention and friendliness of the owners who were welcoming and lovely. Beautiful place where everything was thought of, immaculate condition and in a wonderful location just beneath Table Mountain.
Liked least: Only minor thing, the windows could rattle a bit when the Cape Doctor was in full flow. It was a minor thing though, and easily rectified.

“Funkey Place - maybe it should be called Funkey Palace!”
Reviewed 18 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

The Adriatic holiday house at Funkey Place has everything - we loved its design so much we are now looking for a piece of land in Scotland to build something similar!

It's rare that a holiday apartment can live up to its brochure description but the Adriatic exceeded all our expectations. It was such a cool place to stay - with every room opening up on to the pool which you are can literally just step in to from the living area.

With a view of Table Mountain rising up behind and the sea in front, it didn't matter which way you faced when sunbathing in the lovely private garden. It was also a nice 10 minute walk to the restaurants and beach in Camps Bay so a great location.

The house was serviced every day with two maids and a gardener making it look like new (though you can ask them not to visit if you want privacy any of the days). Great spot, really helpful owners who live in the house next to it, stunning accommodation, good value and everything you could possibly want is provided (including a picnic hamper and travel rug) - we really miss it now we're home!
